waggonswest, nice mug rugs!

Whether this project is eligible can be debated but I've been working on my business website for a REALLY LONG TIME!  I had to tweak the layout, settle on a colour scheme, and write the content.  Plus I created the logo based on the tree image that an Etsy member drew up for me.

It's a pretty basic website but my skills are only so developed and I'm still really happy with it given my personality is not an overly fancy one anyway.  I was aiming for calming and comfortable.  When I look at the site with my boyfriend's laptop, the colours seem overly grey because of his inferior colour card but I like the look on my computer.


I still have some photos to add (that I will take myself!) of the treatment room but I have to wait until we finish renovating it.

So many lovely projects!
Love the birds and the SOCKS (they're grey and cabled - I *heart* them)

The rainy day hoop is wonderful. 

Mug rugs are great - Ive been meaning to make some, but haven't yet.

The bonnets are so sweet!

Dreadlocklove... Your website is very calming.  You've done a great job with it.  I think you should absolutely count it as a craft.

DawnsTrees - love the butterflies.

Smashu - OH stands for Other Half. Like the animal print hats.

ZombieLili - great art work, I'm always jealous of people who can do art. I can do copy, but not original.

Cinnamon teal - The cardinal is fab, I love this bright red bird. and the socks are perfect. I admire anyone with patience to make socks.

Luckdragon - nice work. I love the travel embroidery kit and the fabric used is lovely. The colours on your calorimetry are so pretty together.

waggonswest - adoreable mug rugs. I especially like the first one.

Kookie - has a pink fetish Cheesy The hats are so cute and small.

I just finished a project that I wasn't aware that I needed. Cheesy
It's valentine's next week and I will be away from my OH. First time in 8 years. I've already got him some Blu ray's for valentine's day. Whilst at work today I had a moment of inspiration and thought I could make him a little something just to remind him of how special he is to me.

He's made from baby socks.

Michelle,  I started with a package of adjustable paper crowns I found in the kid or teacher aisle at Michaels.  Let me know if you can't find them.  

Noooo  Love the Disney bag.

  Wink I just edited my main list. I added stuff that wasn't in the original list. Here's a link to my blog: Go see the new layout, Plus it matches my E-Shop. (Please-it's 2 items)http://www.http://needlesandpinsbyklking.blogspot.com
Next, is the lamp in the bead contest... You already know where that is.
Then, the Valentine's Pillows:(I'll just post a group shot)  
Oh, some of  the pillows have a blank Aida Cloth heart , even as a pocket on the big one. I just edited in text to suggest stitched in lettering.  I made hang tags for them with paper sewn to fabric. The tags aren't shown, and I'm counting them as a separate project.I need a close up of them still.

Then, the 2 banners for a religious theme- Large (23"x45") and Small. (11"x18") Large one is for someone else, small one is for us.

The banners are machine applique. I used rubber cement to hold the gold design in place, to avoid too many pins. It is made in a heavy weight rip-stop nylon.(1.9oz. weight) The gold is also the same nylon, with a metallic coating. I have a lot of gold  from a job that went wrong a few years ago! The white is gro- grain ribbon.I just drew a white pencil line, and stitched it with only a few pins. You want to always sew lines like that in only one direction, or it will pucker funny.  I lined it with cotton duck, and the dowel is enclosed. There is no top-stitching on the edges. And, there is a middle layer which the applique was sewn thru. That also helped with puckering from sewing. You cannot see the stitching on the back. It was sewn and turned inside out.
  Tonight I am playing around with a Raggedy Ann pattern.  The instructions are missing, so I decided to make one to write an info sheet. The pattern is being sent to a student in the U.K. I'm making myself a copy.  It was from 1958, and seems to have a lot of popularity lately.
Thanks for checking out my latest!

My partner for the Warehouse 13 Swap said she received so now I can post pics!  I'm now able to cross off some of my projects.

a crocheted hat

My first string doll (it's supposed to look like Claudia from Warehouse 13)

My first rubber stamp (Janus coin-2 faced)

a mini Edgar A. Poe notebook with quill pen

A Haven inspired clutch (it collects Troubles)


Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

Loving all the projects being posted recently - its a bit hard to keep up with all the awesomeness!

I finished two hooplas for myself this morning  Smiley I was burned out on hoopla for a while but I'm feeling re-energized at the moment which is lovely because it is such a great destressor in the evening.

I also took the opportunity to have fun and learn a bunch of new stitches. I'm especially thrilled with the bits that are basically mini weavings with embroidery - I will have to do more with that!

I've wanted to do a rainbow color wheel type sampler for a while  Grin

I also did a little freeform embroidery for fun. I need more text on my hoopla wall. I dyed the fabric used in that hoop too.

Annnnnnnddd....just because it was on my camera when I downloaded pictures, a sneak-peek of my Hunger Games TM bag in progress.
