Team/Ninja: Team S&M
Project Geekdom (if any):
Bonus Points: include which bonus points you think you've earned
Project Name: Beachy embroidered napkins
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I'm sad to say, but I bought a couple Martha Stewart embroidery kits a gazillion years ago when they went on sale. I'm not a big fan of kits or Martha Stewart,  but like I said, they were on sale. I loved the colors and the ready made napkins with shell patterns pre-printed in water soluble ink were too good to be true. I rushed right in and stitched one single napkin up, then got involved in a swap, put them aside and didn't touch them again for a couple years. When I saw the challenge to complete a WIP this project came to mind. The top row is one set of the napkins from the front, on the bottom row it is showing the backs of the napkins... which unfortunately show so I had to work hard to make the back neat.

Project Name: Soap Sachet (first)
Brief Description: This sachet was inspired by the olfactory system (i.e. your sense of smell) and turned out to be the perfect project for the variegated yarn I recently bought and frogged on three potential projects already. My gran owned boxes and boxes of soap bars (a cold war hoard!) which were spread all over her closets and cupboards, in between clothes and towels, to keep them from getting a musty smell. Some soaps are still wrapped in paper, but not all of them. For new year's I'm making a bunch of soap sachets for the bars that don't have paper anymore. I wanted to get a mesh effect, so the scent could really spread. I didn't remember the delta stitch as well as I thought though, so the holes were very much on the tiny side, but I still like the effect!

Project Name: Soap sachet (second)
Brief Description:
For my second soap sachet, I did use the delta stitch the way it should be done. Looks a lot more triangly, right? I used three prime numbers: the bag is made from three rows of double crochet, five rows of delta stitch, and two rows of single crochet.

Project Name:  Badger hair bow
Brief Description:  The bodily system I chose for this challenge is the integumentary system.  It is an organ system that helps protects the body from damage and also allows for vitamin D synthesis.  It includes skin, hair, and nails (and scales, hooves, and feathers, if youre not human  Cheesy ).  The baby blanket I made is for my cousins new kiddo, but I figured her big sister needed some presents, too.  I am sending the hair bows I previously made, but I came across a remnant of this University of Wisconsin fabric and decided I should try my hand at a fabric bow as well, since they live in WI and whenever we get together we end up watching at least a few UW games on TV (or sometimes even in person)!  This was my first time making a fabric bow, and it was super fiddly to get the images/words all lined up the way I wanted, but I think it turned out cute!

Sort of.  I'm not working for money right now, so I've been working on learning embroidery and stuff.....   Tongue

Challenge/Battle/Alert: June Wordy
Team/Ninja: Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Star Trek
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy, Nerdy, Discovery
Project Name: Commander Onsie
Brief Description: As a child my mother was a very conservative Christian. I was expected to read the bible primarily. I liked Historical fiction (I read all the American Girls and Dear America Series), My mom had one exception. She allowed me Star Trek. I grew up with Picard, and as an adult when I jumped both feet into Science Fiction and Fantasy I watched all of the episodes of every Star Trek Series.

I know I've been posting many baby onesies lately, but I dont have anyone to wear them. I have two nieces who sadly aren't geeks, and their parents wouldn't get the geeky references. I've had these ideas rattle around in my head and I wanted to make then because of the prompts. If you know someone who would like a 24 month old Star Trek Onsie PM me. If no one specifically wants it I can donate it the Nerd Games Prize pool, but I"m not sure if that would be a desirable prize for anyone.

This was made first by dying the onsie and then stenciling the logo on with plastic xacto knife cut stencil and my screen printing screen and ink.
