Yet another project I have painted (this new computer is so much fun!)

192  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3 snowmen projects on: November 08, 2006 11:20:59 AM
Now that we have a computer at home that can handle my sons camera, I'm having fun posting pictures of things I've made Grin

These are 3 snowmen projects that I have painted over the last few years.

           In my dining room:



                                  In my kitchen:

                             

This is a shelf sitter and he's usually on the opening between our kitchen and living room but the lighting was so poor there, I had to put him on the china cabinet:



193  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stacked penguins on: November 08, 2006 07:51:29 AM
It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.

194  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Thing ? on: November 06, 2006 07:51:13 AM
I participated in five One Tiny Thing swaps and then they seemed to disappear.  I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in doing another one of these and what do you think would be good timing for it - before or after Christmas?
195  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pink Pinwheels on: October 16, 2006 07:01:30 PM
I used this same pinwheel pattern in a quilt I made earlier this year and absolutely loved it so when I found that I had collected a rather large amount of pinks, I knew just what to do.  The other color is dark blue with stars on it.

Friends just had a baby girl so it's going to them soon!

         
196  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Baseball Scarecrow on: October 04, 2006 06:26:48 PM
I made this scarecrow out of a baseball (not one that belonged to my sons, no way! Mom had to buy her own!)

It's resting on a cardboard ring which I covered in fabric so it looks like a plaid shirt, complete with bow tie.  Then I topped it off with some straw, a straw hat and flowers.


197  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Swan (amigurumi?) on: September 29, 2006 07:42:14 AM
I'm not sure if this really qualifies as an amigurumi since it's so large but that's what I am calling it.

In one of the Ongoing Wish Swaps, I chose to make someone a large amigurumi thinking it would be easy to find patterns.  Well, I quickly learned that was not true.  In my mind, an amigurumi should be made totally of single crochet and most large animals I found, weren't.  So when I saw this swan and realized it was totally single crochet, that's the pattern I chose.

It's a little different that the original since I could not get the whole mouth section to look proper according to the pattern.  So, I modified the pattern to what I thought looked best.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

198  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong (w/pattern links) on: August 27, 2006 09:31:17 PM
I will choose 2 patterns for 12" crochet squares each month, post the links here and then participants can choose to make one or both of them.  By the end of 12 months, you should have enough squares for either a lap afghan (if you make 1 per month) or larger (if you make both per month)

I will try to pick squares of differing difficulties so that newbies and experienced crocheters can participate.

Since this is a craftalong, there is no need to sign up or send me anything saying you're going to participate, however, I would love to see pictures of the squares you have made (post them in this thread.)

Most important is to HAVE FUN! and, if you have any questions or need assistance, either post your question here or PM me and I'll see what I can do to help.

199  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 14 ENTRIES / The Golden Doily on: August 03, 2006 06:39:00 PM
Wow, after seeing all the other entries, I almost chickened out to enter mine but decided to go ahead anyway.  This is my first challenge.

I don't have any action shots of the 'making' process so decided to show the items I used in the making instead.  I crocheted this with a size 1 steel crochet hook and used 3 strands of regular sewing thread (the picture has been enlarged so the items show up)

Now, the GOLDEN DOILY (it has a 1 3/4" diameter)

200  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Our very first stenciled shirt on: July 15, 2006 09:03:42 PM
A few months ago my son asked me if I had ever stenciled, to which I had to reply no.  He asked me if I could find out how to do it and could we stencil a shirt together.  I told him to go ahead and work on a stencil and I would ask this group for advice.  I received wonderful advice and we were able to get on with the project.  I found out after we started that I should have mixed my acrylic paint with a fabric medium but didn't this time so the lettering is a little hard.  My son wants to make more shirts so we will know for next time.

This is what we created and he has received many wonderful comments on it:
