1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / IT Crowd and Beatles 'Bubbles' on: June 20, 2010 04:29:36 AM
I've been quite sick over the last week, which has led to an extraordinary amount of crafting for someone who rarely can find the effort to do so!

I had originally stitched up The Beatles in their 'Sgt Peppers' gear, inspired by a minipop picture I found. It was very tricky stitching...1 over 1 on 32 count linen...and I never knew how to finish them off. But eventually, the right combination of rain, sickness and fever brain inspired me to use lyrics and to finish it off!



After I had finished that one I moved onto The IT Crowd.



I finished them both off just using felt, glue and stitching. Am very happy with the finishing technique and am planning on creating a few more, all to do with my fandoms
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Auckland craft shops on: January 30, 2009 11:52:16 PM
Hello everyone,

Well I've made the big move from Southland to Auckland and am beginning to get itchy fingers for crafting...problem is with such a big city I am finding it hard to find any real nice craft stores/events/groups. Anyone have any suggestions? I live in South Auckland (near Botany Downs) but am up for travelling anywhere for some good crafting.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / First scrapbook - Leading up to the wedding (image heavy) on: March 07, 2008 12:11:24 AM
First post in a long long time. I've been busy studying and working so haven't had much time for getting back in touch with crafts. But I'm making an attempt this year!

My sister had her wedding back in February and I decided it was a little bit of a waste to have all those photos on the computer and not to do anything with them. I've always wanted to try my hand at scrapbooking so I decided I'd make a 'Leading up to the wedding' scrapbook for her as a present. I'm off to Melbourne (where she lives) in 4 days so it's been completed just in time!


This photo was taken just as they had come back from Melbourne the fortnight before the wedding.


The invite, plus envelope, stamps and the brown papers is what was on the back of the invitation!




One of her hen's night tasks was the dj some songs, get a guy to take off his top and get 25 kisses from guys (photos horribly blurry in this shot)




Onto the Bridal Shower I hosted!


Recipes for the cupcakes, blini and parmesan crisps filled with avocado, lemon and chilli


One of the games was to make a dress out of toilet paper!


Mum made the bridesmaid dresses so I included some of the fabric in there (very difficult to attach!)


Their wedding cake, with seacow toppers (the groom lovessss seacows). Mum yet again made the three cakes (fruit cake, carrot cake and chocolate mud cake).


Before the wedding I took my sister and my English cousin (over for the wedding) out to Queenstown, a tourist mecca here in New Zealand, for a day. They went bungy jumping and we had a great time relaxing and shopping.


The last few days before the wedding involved my sister mowing the lawns, out at the beach and at the pub (yay!).


The rehearsal! This is one of the very first churches built in New Zealand. It used to be sheep yards but was restored 2 years ago.




Makeup time!


Hair time!


The morning of the wedding


The car that my sister was taken up to the church in.


Married! The written bits to the sides are their vows

4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Possibility of Swap? on: March 19, 2005 04:38:49 AM
Well after I finally found the "Start New Topic" button (it's so early in the morning...I'm allowed to be blind!) I thought I should bring up this topic. It was brought up previously but I'm not sure if anything happened in the end.

How about a New Zealand craft swap? I've been viewing a lot of the swap/sampler webpages and have been inspired. Even if it's just as a form of craftster penpals...sending each other crafty goodness in the post. I know it can be really hard to find crafty things in New Zealand and this might be a help for those who really want to build their own little stash up and make new friends

Anyone interested?
5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Badge maker query on: August 09, 2004 12:04:06 AM
Heya,

Just wondering if any of you Kiwi's know where one could find a badge maker set? I've been searching on Trademe for about 5 months for one and can't find any, and I don't want to buy from overseas!

My badge fetish needs satisfaction!!!
