Romero is named for George A Romero, the father of the Zombie movie. He is an Amigurumi doll that stands about 12" tall and has a full head of wild zombie hair. I was inspired to make this doll when I saw the buttons at the craft shop. They were so dead and flat looking that I immediately thought of a zombie doll. His dead eyes express how much he just wants to eat your delicious braaaaiiiinnnns. WATCH OUT!! HE'S COMING RIGHT FOR YOU!!
I can't believe this thread hadn't been created yet! You guys must be so busy spinning, it just slipped your minds. I have nothing to show off this week, but I just got a HUGE box from Spunky Eclectic, so I should have something to show off soon. What does everybody else have?
I was wondering if anybody would be interested in doing a Sam-a-long? I would love to see all the projects when they are done. I think it would be great to see all the different variations and interpretations of the pattern. It can be found here
I have seen some great Boucle yarns here and I had some short yardage left over, so I gave it a shot. Parts of it are great and parts are so loose and icky. Is it all in the angle that the thread is plyed on or is it in the speed of the wheel when plying?
I just started spinning on a wheel this week and I am having a blast! I had some merino I was working with, but it kept breaking when I drafted and then again when I tried to get it off the bobbin. I was finaly able to get a useable yarn off, but it had to be kind of thick. Do you guys have any tips for spinning the short fibers like merino?
Why is he screaming? What terrible thing did he see or hear that causes that look of abject horror on his face? This icon of the expressionistic art movement evokes so much emotion in so many people. He is like a wreck on the freeway, you can't stop looking.
My son LOVES pandas. So I made him this quilt for his birthday last year. It has pandas on the front, they are in a 4" X 5" space. On the back it is dragons and flames, for when he gets older. It is tied with black #10 cotton.
I got these patterns for animals from my Grandmother. She used to make quilted stuffed animals out of them. I thought it would be interesting to see what else I could make out of them. So I apliqued the baby cat onto the big cat and then apliqued the big cat to a pillow cover. I called it "Mommy Loves You" because it looks like the big cat is watching over the baby cat
