Thank you - that is probably my favourite too - I love how the grays and blacks looked on the texture medium, and it felt fabulous to the touch when it dried, like a cool, hard plaster.

I hope she did - I have to admit that when everything dried, I was just running my hands over it because it was quite the transformation!

Here is an embroidered wall-hanging I recently made for a swap. It is already in a new home.

I combined two large embroidered bees with a smaller image of a beehive and some honeycomb shapes.

Oh squee!  This month's theme is too awesome to not join.  The fiancee is a chef and is very excited as well lol.  Q coming in when the kids go to bed.

I saw a pegboard thread rack on pinterest and realized that it would work perfect in the tiny corner I rearranged to fit my new old singer treadle sewing machine. The sewing machine still needs to be cleaned up before I can use it but I decided the work on the pegboard first.

Humble beginnings:

I glued wooden dowels into the pegboard with gorilla glue and arranged them based on the crafting supplies I needed to store/display.

Once it was dry I painted the entire thing with acrylic paint. I wasn't perfectly happy with the plain blue so I took a owl stamp and dipped it in white paint to create the owl accents. Then I just painted simple branches to connect the owls.

Finished Paint (The picture is crooked because of me not the wall)

Then I organized my thread according to color and discovered that I own a ridiculous amount of pink thread for reasons I don't understand and that I desperately need to go buy some black thread. So for anyone who struggles to keep track of their thread supply might find this very helpful. And you can add as many or as little pegs as you want based on how much thread you own.

Thanks for looking!

Smeddley, sorry my theme is a pain in the butt right now! I appreciate you trying xoxo

I'm still hopeful!  If not to stay exactly on theme theme, at least staying in the feel (with anything I buy - crafted items I can certainly tailor!).

Weirdly, one of the craft stores I went to today seems to have completely skipped over Halloween (and Thanksgiving) and went directly to Christmas. D:

I claim scarlet_nights for pincushions and a surprise!

My name is Agnes, and I'm an Art History student from Belgium! I am allergic to dust and lactose, I have no pets, and I don't smoke.

I'm obsessed with an avid fan of the Silmarillion (and everything Tolkien, really). I also like the Portal games, and Alice in Wonderland. I love cats, crows/ravens, clocks, eyes, hands, surrealism, macabre, bizarre, Lolita-cute and sciency/steampunky things.
My favorite colors are black, red (blood red, burgundy, etc... no earthy, rusty tones though), and royal blue. I like pillows, interesting jewelry, strange/unusual home decor, fabric (preferably silky/velvety/satiny types), beads, charms, embroidery the list is virtually endless! For most things, erring on the side of gothic/dark style tends to be a foolproof strategy for me; that way itll definitely fit with the rest of my stuff ^_^

I have made a board for this swap: http://www.pinterest.com/quantumphysica/the-wish-list/ but do check out the rest of my boards if you want a better idea of what kind of person I am. I tried my best to put many different kinds of crafty items on this list, but if necessary I'll add more/different things.

If you want to make me something wearable and need my measurements, just send me a message!

Sewn/Knitted/Crocheted Items: Wearables

- A cape. Yeah, I know. Big wish. I'd love to have a long, black hooded cape, something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585562/ or this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585568/

- Knitted fingerless gloves, preferably black or red, or somehow fandom themed. (Something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938586512/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938742229/?)

- A ruffled cravat/jabot (something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585583/ or this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585576/)

- A simple leather/pleather body harness (something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938654929/)


You simply cannot go wrong with anything

- Tolkien-themed (preferably Silmarillion, if this list hasnt shown you already how completely and utterly obsessed I am with it)

- Alice in Wonderlandthemed

- Portal-themed (Especially companion cubes, they are the cutest ^^)

Just check my Pinterest swap board, I have pinned so many items with these themes, too much to mention each thing separately


- Fabric. Large pieces, scraps, and everything in between is welcome! More specifically you can please me with:
   Black and red velvet
   Silky/satiny fabric in red, orange, gold, yellow, bright royal blue, silver, and soft silvery blue. (This is all for one project, an applique pillow. Scrappy pieces are ok; the whole thing is only going to be 12x12inch when completed anyway.)
   Middle-Earth/Tolkien/LOTR themed fabric
   Sciency fabric (think equations, molecules, books, graphs, periodic table, number pi, etc)
   Portal-themed fabric, especially the cutesy kind with companion cubes
   Alice in Wonderland fabric, especially the kind with the original/vintage illustrations from the book
   Doctor Who themed fabric
   Escher-esque/optical illusion printed fabric
   Clocks and gears
   Space/galaxy prints
   Black leather/pleather

- Embroidery supplies (colorful thread, an embroidery hoop, etc.)

- Oil-based Sharpie pens (the type you can use to write on ceramics!)

- Charms. I have some pretty specific wishes here because I hope to make a themed bracelet and I have been unable to find these around here.
   Hand charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585884/)
   Hammer charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585888/)
   Bow charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585898/)
   Arrow charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585899/)
(Especially the hand charm is impossible to find here, there is not a single Belgian seller who has them!)

- Toppled square cabochon bases (like these: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938743724/, squares with a ring on one of the corners. It would be awesome if you could also find transparent dome thingies to go with them, like these but matching in size with the bases: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938743805/)

Thanks a lot for claiming me! ^_^
