1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / Picture Hosting doesn't recognize me anymore? on: October 30, 2008 01:24:16 PM
I can see my gallery with the pictures, but can't seem to post any new ones. Cry I login to PH and it's as if I don't exist. It's been a while since I posted so maybe something's different. Or, I'm just being dense, but would really appreciate any help.

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / New Stuff - watercolor birds on: October 30, 2008 01:17:21 PM
I've been seriously missing in action from Craftster lately - what can I say? Stuff just gets in the way!

Here's a blog post of three of a series I've been working on. It's a new direction for me and has been very enjoyable. What's the verdict?



Sorry about not posting the image, but Photo Hosting doesn't seem to recognize me anymore. Will look into that.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / In Progress - Little Girls Vest/Overdress on: May 18, 2007 04:00:02 PM
Making this vest/dress for my goddaughter for summer. No pattern, I'm designing as it goes and, sure enough, it looks like I'll run out of yarn  Grin

Here's a peek at it in progress:



Just looking at the photo, it seems like it will need some kind of more substantial border on the bottom to balance the more dense bodice.

Thoughts? Comments?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Quikie Post - Little Girls Hot Pink Sweater with Purple Stripes on: May 18, 2007 03:45:23 PM
Just wanted to post this because I FINALLY got something finished Grin
It seemed like I was having a serious dry spell there.

This is a sweater for my goddaughter - knit in the round. It is Lion Woolease in Fuschia. I decided to add the purple stripes to tone down the PINKNESS of it.



5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Little Girls Princess/Flower/Pirate Sweater (that took FOREVER) on: January 25, 2007 02:00:22 PM
FINALLY! I have finished this sweater! It is for my goddaughter, who is two, and I think it turned out well.



You can follow it's design twists and turns on my blog - www.shinydesigns.blogspot.com

It may not be quite as piratey as I had in mind but I think she will like it. I sure hope so - it was turning into a royal pain to finish   Shocked
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Gold Mermaid - New Paint for Christmas! on: January 09, 2007 12:37:36 PM
Just finished this up.

I asked for, well I bought it myself and wrapped it too, gouache paints for Christmas since they are one of the few types of paints I've not used yet.

This was my first try with them. It has some issues, but overall it turned out OK. It is only 5 inches by 7 inches since it was just a sample.

The figure is from a life drawing reference book - the rest is imaginary  Smiley



What do you think?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / FAST and Easy Knit/Crochet Felted Potholders on: December 22, 2006 11:53:22 AM
Hi Everybody,

Posted this in Winter Holidays and then thought that maybe wasn't the best place so ....

Here is a great last minute (or last few hours anyway) useful and handmade gift. I have been using a pair of these potholders in my kitchen since Thanksgiving. They work as well as any purchased potholder I've had. Plus, they are custom over sized and color coordinated with my kitchen.

The instructions are on my blog as well as here. They are approximately 8.5 inches square before felting. This picture is before felting.




To Crochet:

Chain 28, work a half double crochet in the 2nd chain from hook and each chain across, chain 2 and turn. Continue in half double crochet until potholder is square and end with chain 12 (for loop) and slip stitch in beginning of chain. End off and work in ends.

To Knit:

Cast on 32 stitches. Work in garter stitch until potholder is square, bind off. With last loop remaining, chain 12 (for loop) and slip stitch in beginning of chain. End off and work in ends.

To Felt:

Wash in washing machine with hot water and a towel for more agitation. Dry flat and adjust shape to square.

If anybody is in need of a quick gift, I'd love to hear if this works for you.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Distressed Daises Painted Switchplate on: July 28, 2006 12:34:14 PM
Hi All,

Just finished this up and was fairly pleased. It is a wooden switchplate cover from Lowe's.

The undercoat is green with a candle rubbed over then ivory on top. Then, I use a green scrubby to scrub the ivory back off where the wax was so it has that shabby look.

next, I just brush sketched the flowers and painted them in. Finished with three coats of clear sealer.



Now, to get back to painting some more!
