1  Treehugger visual lyrics in Needlework: Completed Projects by Twitchyfingers on: June 26, 2011 11:09:37 PM
My daughter and I love the song 'Treehugger' by Kimya Dawson http://www.kimyadawson.com/. Every time I sing it to her I visualise the lyrics and started thinking that I could embroider them for her for her birthday. So here they are with their accompanying lyrics!

The flower said i wish I was a tree


The tree said I wish I could be a different kind of tree


The cat wished that it was a bee


The turtle wished that it could fly, really high into the sky, over rooftops and then dive, deep into the sea


And in the sea there is a fish, a fish that has a secret wish, a wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it


I'm pretty happy with how they turned out - although the turtle is a little bland... I might have to fill-in the rooftops of the houses or something to introduce some colour.

Anyway, hope my daughter likes them!

Every single hoop has been fantastic - but prepare to be jealous... I just received this morning from giddygirlie



This is the world's worst photo of the world's best hoops... I can't tell you how much I love them. I took this photo in the dim morning light so I'll add a better photo when I can. The details, the colours, the fact it has a tree in it - everything is just perfect and I love it to bits. I even carried it around with me all day just so i could look at it... Thanks so much giddygirlie - I will treasure it always!

Better photos today - you can see the wonderful detail of the girl and the tree -  loving the toadstool.

5  Haiku-inspired tree embroidery - now with pattern! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Twitchyfingers on: February 21, 2010 05:38:54 PM
My sister loves this haiku by Shiki:

Here is the dark tree
Denuded now
Of leafage...
But a million stars


So I embroidered this for her
 


Cotton floss on calico.



I wish I'd made one for me now!


and here's a jpg of the pattern - free for non-commercial use.

6  Cruel crewel embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by Twitchyfingers on: February 16, 2010 06:55:14 PM
I'm sure I'm not the first to use the play on words afforded by 'crewel embroidery'.



Its not a very nice sentiment but I'm channeling some impotent anger in embroidery rather than at the people around me!

Its four strands of cotton floss on calico.

How about a pinata cake?? I made one for my daughter's 2nd birthday and it was a huge hit (hehehehe)! I did a post here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113262.0 a while back which has a link to the recipe/method and my translation for non-Australian readers. Its from the Women's Weekly Children's Birthday Cake Book, which is pretty much a bible for Australian kids parties! (see http://melbournegastronome.blogspot.com/2007/09/australian-womens-weekly-childrens.html)

8  Quick and Easy Stencilled Baby Singlets in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Twitchyfingers on: May 01, 2007 02:23:53 PM
I love stenciling with freezer paper, but really don't have the time to spend carving out intricate designs. A couple of my friends have recently had bubbies and I was trying to think of personalised - and quick - presents for them. And then I remembered my little paper craft punches which are now part of my daughter's craft box.


I just punched out a couple of each animal onto strips of freezer paper and it was sooooo quick! It would be better if you had larger ones because the definition isn't great on some of the small bits, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.


I notice a couple of others have used this technique (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119881.0, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111092.0) so I know its nothing new - but it was certainly a revelation to me!

10  Wooden handles and retro red flower fabric bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Twitchyfingers on: February 10, 2007 02:25:43 PM
My Nan gave me an old knitting bag which was plastic lined and so filthy. But it had these beautiful old handles.... so i unpicked the crusty old fabric and used it to make a pattern, painted the handles and used two materials from Nan's stash (which seemed made for each other) and voila! I love it.
