401  My version of the Tree of Life in Beads: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: September 09, 2006 11:21:25 AM
I was so intrigued by Ralphs' post earlier in the month about the Tree of Life pendent (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111136.0.  I immediately thought that it would be so cool as a suncatcher or wall hanging.  However, I didn't get a chance to go down to my favourite bead store until this past Thursday to pick up some large size macrame rings, and some more wire, as most of mine is very fine gauge for crocheting.

I really like it with the macrame rings - they are so sturdy.

Here is my first trial, a 4 inch version.  I have 8-9 inch rings too, but I like the 4 inch as well, so I will likely make another two of it in different colours and hand them together as a set for myself - wow, for once I am making something for myself - that almost never happens!

402  More Christmas ornaments - at least the beginnings thereof in Winter Holidays by Onyxnox on: September 09, 2006 07:47:55 AM
Here are some bead netted stars I have been working on, some of which have been netted onto an ornament.











I've modified the ornament netting a bit since that picture, to include a bit more netting, with a crystal in the centre, but I think I will leave that out with the next few I do - I like it better with the larger blue expanse.

This was my own pattern - what do you think?

403  Submitting Grandmoms work - and she was one stylin' chick in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Onyxnox on: August 18, 2006 11:35:06 AM
Found this one perusing some old family albums and I just had to post it.  It was my two sisters and bro with Santa, in outfits Grandmom made for them - back in the early 70s.  I was probably not yet born, or just an infant. 

LOVE the tiger stripe fabric, especially as an entire outfit - though ironically, the only one who was born in the year of the Tiger in the pic is in plaid (and she did become the Bay City Rollers fan).

Really makes me miss my grandmom - and this picture will be restored and reincarnated as a family Christmas card - my neices and nephews will LOVE to see this!

404  And finally two oldies in Crochet: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 02:54:32 PM
Here is the first filet project I ever did - an initial doily just to make sure I got filet instructions before starting larger projects - since then I have done a wall hanging, and am almost done a filet afghan, and started a puppy centrepiece.


and here is a dinosaur pillow buddy/jammy holder I made DHs neice when she was younger and waaaaaaaaaay into dinosaurs.  She has outgrown it, but we could not stand to see it go in the trash.  Perhaps it will be the new pillow for my doggies.

405  An apple a day in Crochet: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 02:50:49 PM
Some fruity baby hats I made that I was going to donate to the gift shop of my hospital.  Before it became a bookstore. 

I thought they were cute, and so easy to make.

406  I see unicorns! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 02:49:01 PM
I just finished this recently - though I started it last year.  It sucks when you lose the pattern and don't find it for more than 9 months.

It's for a friends wife - she collects unicorns and I thought this one looked very sweet.  Now that I am done him, I don't want to give him up - remember what happened to my stuff frog afterall!!!  For that matter, it is the same woman who did not appreciate the boob pillow I gave her hubby.

You gotta love this guy - he's got DIMPLES!!!!  I've always been a sucker for dimples!





What do you think of my piece de resistance?

Also, if anyone wants the pattern, here is the link:

407  Skull tote in Crochet: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 02:43:18 PM
Bear with me, I just had some pics finished and have a lot of projects to post.

This is my skull tote - influenced by the knit tote from www.helloyarn.com.  I crocheted in single crochet in the round, working the handles as I went, and making a lip on the inside for a zipper.  I then cross stitched the skull on, based on the chart on the site.  This pic is before I felted it in the wash.  It went through twice, and I am not pleased - will try it twice more because I want a denser fabric.

408  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.... in Beads: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 02:03:18 PM




These are some netted bead ornaments I made on Tuesday for Christmas, for the neighbours.  They are done with iridescent translucent glass seed beads, with blue fire polished crystal accents.  Some are dangling drapes, others are netted around the ball, enclosing it.  They are draped over the non-breakable balls from Ikea, with a matte blue, slightly metallic surface - very pretty, like ice crystals in the twilight.

Here is a pic that gives you an idea of the top, and to the left, the bottom of the enclosed design.

409  Three necklaces in Beads: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 17, 2006 01:58:38 PM
Here is a pic of three necklaces I did.  Two are crocheted, three strands each, one with purplish fire polished crystals, the other with black freshwater pearls, both on silver tone 28 gauge wire.  The third is one I made awhile ago and forgot about, but found when I was looking through my jewelry box (actually found a lot of nice jewelry I forgot I had).  It is hard to see in the picture, but it is three strands too, each with rounded deep red garnet beads (the larger round beads) interspersed with white freshwater pearls, and metallic bronzey/coppery seed beads.

All are choker length or slightly longer.

410  Stupid silly, decorative only oven mitts in Crochet: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: August 14, 2006 12:51:28 PM
which I made and gave away just for the heck of it.  To me, they were more puppets than anything else, and I made them "just 'cause" - afterall they were done in acrylic yarn and have no padding - who the heck would want to grab a hot pan from the oven with that (other than my very scarred, accident prone in the kitchen mother-in-law - who got the really long silicone mitts for Christmas last year)

My silly bunny


My silly cow (to satisfy my cow fetish - but then got given away to another cow lover)




Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason - you just have to make it.
