Holy smokes. I just caught up with like a month of this thread and I am so overwhelmed by all the awesomeness. I have been lazy at posting, and have somehow misplaced my camera. I also just started grad school and holy crap is there a lot of reading. My first master's had a lot of writing and labs, but this one is endless reading so far! At least most of it is interesting.
So, as I said, I can't find my camera, so I am borrowing pictures (most of these are swaps!)
for rlynn's lovely little one, I made my first pilowcase nighties. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=406671.msg4819857#msg4819857
I thought they were cute, but I think they are even cuter on Aria!!
for atsuko's niece, I embroidered a fawn on a tee. It is a legit vintage pattern, my first. I think it turned out alright
My embroidery skills are improving as I get more obsessed with embroidery
I made this for burst of panties for the hoopla swap
I learned a new stitch for this one!
I made this star wars hoop for the same swap for dewshinedrop
I really need to get better at lettering. It frustrates the hell out of me!!
and for lindyv, I made a grown up version of the anatomy hoodie. I LOVE MAKING THESE!!! It was fun, and I think she liked it
The next set of images were taken on my phone. Sorry that they suck
I embroidered some onesies for my nephews and niece, for the oldest's 3rd "farm party" bday party
They were each done in different colors (to match what they were to wear for that day. My sisters LOVE coordinating their kids - its kinda cute)
sadly no pic of the kiddos in them....
a close up of the girliest cowgirl boot ever!
My now 3 yo nephew and I do a lot of "frojects". He loves them, and so I try to come up with cool things to do. A month or so ago, we planted seeds. I made a bunch of seedling pots out of toilet paper rolls (not my idea - can't remember where I saw it to give credt
we now have a few sprouts, but they live in Riverside where it is HOT AS ALL GET OUT! And he is three. He likes to over water. Not a big deal. He loves learning about planting things and watering them, so who am I to complain
Not sure if I have posted our "lamby" cupcakes. We made these for easter. Around the beginning of june, he asked if we could make lamby cupcakes, so obviously it was a hit. And he has a good memory
And lastly, I made a fascinator. My grandmother asked for a brown one and a black one. I have yet to make the brown one, but she loved the black one. I need apic of her in it, but I doubt that will happen any time soon
phew, thats a lot of catching up. I think that is everything.....probably
