271  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Purple lariat - St. Petersburg chain on: May 06, 2007 05:09:16 PM
This is my version of the lariat from the last Bead and Button - the St Petersburg stitch lariat.  I used purple AB seed beads, and a matte 8/0 bead in the centre instead of the crystals.  I quite like the feel of it around my neck.  The display neck is small - when it is folded in half and the ends pulled through, the fringe sits just between my boobs. 









I love the texture of the chain.
272  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first and only embroidary project - pillowcases on: April 15, 2007 06:12:58 PM
I did these to sort of match a duvet cover we bought - I really like the corner motifs I did.  They have a line of blossoms going down the opening edge, and I did a motif in the opposite corner on each side of the case.





273  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Finished my dragon! on: March 22, 2007 12:51:42 PM
finally got around to making that dragon from that great tutorial by MarjorieCrochets - http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=612565#post612565

Thanks so much for the great instructions - I was able to start it during slow times during my wound care class the other day, and finished it last night - it was so fast!

I did mine in black, and used crackled glass beads for her eyes.  I think I will have to do a family of them in different colours with different gems for my lizard loving neice - perhaps with wings.  Next time, I am going to have to find a coordinating sock or stocking for stuff the fibrefill in before stuffing the crocheted bits to hide the stuffing better.





Her name shall be Moonlight (Shining through the Darkened Woods) in honour of her eyes.
274  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Spiral stitch necklaces - image heavy on: February 24, 2007 10:15:01 AM
I made three of these the last few days - they worked up so fast.  They are spiral stitched with seed beads, and hex cut beads.  The first has a silvery/translucent grey seed bead with grey/black hex beads, the other two were a darker grey seed, or a purply iris seed bead, both with an AB dark finish hex.  I only had one magnetic clasp, so the last two are just waiting until I buy more clasps.  Also, for the purply one, I made a couple of matching earrings, which I will attach to the hooks as soon as I can find them.



275  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Crafting while on vacation in Vermont on: January 26, 2007 01:07:16 PM
We're going for a family ski vacation in Killington, Vermont.  I don't downhill ski, and from what I can see, there is no cross country trails in that area on their sites (not that I have done CC in many many years).  That's OK - DH does, and they already know that my vacation will involve reading, crafting, and shopping (for craft stuff).

Can anyone give me a heads up on what is available in terms of book stores, bead stores, yarn stores, general crafts stores in that area - or anywhere on route from Toronto Canada, to Vermont?
276  UNITED STATES / Vermont / Vermont craft stores??? Possibly Quebec too? on: January 22, 2007 05:30:46 AM
We're going to Vermont from Toronto for a week in March and I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good craft stores/book stores/bead stores/yarn stores that I could check out as I don't ski and plan on using the week to read/craft/shop.

We may be going through Quebec and Lake Placid to get there - if I can persuade DH for a pit stop - anyone know the route and any interesting stores along the line?

To be specific, we are going to be in Killington.  Bear Run?  Something like that.
277  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Wrapped around my hearts on: January 16, 2007 01:50:09 PM
I'm getting pretty fast at this.  This one just took me a couple of hours, done with pink embroidery floss, pink matte seed beads, and pink czech fire polished rounds.  This time, I only wrapped half the necklace form.







What do you think?
278  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New necklace - wrapped wire with floss on: January 16, 2007 08:13:00 AM
I love the blue beads in this necklace - Blue AB finish Miyuki drops - they look like they glow sometimes.

Anyways, I had a stiff wire form necklace, and have been wanting to do this for awhile.  I wrapped it in embroidary floss, like doing a skinny friendship bracelet, and did bead drops from it at intervals.  I love this.


279  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New necklace - vines and branches on: January 14, 2007 10:15:17 PM
Not sure what to call this one - vines and icicles, vines and branches?

Essentially a netted necklace done with matte pink iridescent beads in a leaf pattern fringe, with 3mm and 4mm FP crystals thrown here and there, interspersed with iridescent clear beads done in a branch fringe.


280  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Oil bottles, so simple on: January 14, 2007 09:52:04 PM
I have been looking for nice oil dispensing bottles for the last several months, that were cute, but did not cost an arm and a leg, and didn't hold a minute amount of oil/vinegar, whatever.  Anything to replace those ugly plastic jugs - and it had to be metal or glass, since plastic gets sticky and gross after awhile.

The only one I found that I liked was at an oil specialty shop and cost about $35 for ONE - so forget about it.

Then I realised that I could buy pouring spouts for bottles at my local kitchen store for a couple of bucks each or less.  Also, I have this collection of wine bottles and cat-shaped wine bottles that I have been collecting for the past several years.  The cats because they are in funky colours, and were cute - the others because of funky colours and I had plans involving cutting them, making mosaics, windchimes, etc.


The pouring spouts seemed to be a universal fit.  So I etched the names of the contents on the glass (some would not etch because of dimpling in the glass, so they get painted)






So now I have some funky oil bottles that were super cheap, and a reason not to toss out my cat bottle collection (the rest are going to be painted also for various uses).
