What a great picture! Wow, mad spinning momma, Queen of the Undead. Gallery hasn't even officially started yet and I'm impressed.

Hurray for neglecting my domestic duties and getting Beccas_Song's hoop sent out today. I had so much fun with this one that I don't even feel much anxiety. !!!
2363  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Embroidery Hoopla R7 - Silhouette & Negative Space! (SU CLOSED) on: January 31, 2012 07:55:37 AM
I went to Hobby Lobby about a couple weeks ago to get some hoops to prepare myself for this swap (and life, I had run out somehow) and the only hoop I got bigger than an 8" was for the doily on my hoop wall. Well, the image and method I chose for Becca's Song ended up needing much bigger than that! Good thing my husband was down with going out to eat last night so we could go back to HL. I'm basically done already, just a couple minor touch ups and it'll be good to go. Not to say it will go, since I don't have any other boxes ready for the PO yet, but you never know what might happen. So excited! I hope it's OK with the swap that I used a different medium. I know Becca's cool with it so we'll see what you guys think. If I have to make another one to meet swap reqs I can probably do that, too Wink I love this theme!

Boober was my favorite. I didn't watch much as a kid but bought the whole series on DVD a couple years ago and the kids just finished it about a month ago. Bittersweet ending, but that's beside the point. Boober had the most character.

Crafting ADD: setting a goal for yourself (clean and scour 3 raw fleeces by the end of march), signing up for 2 swaps, not starting the first swap for x amount of time, figuring out BOTH hoops for the second swap the day they are assigned, Not even touching the necessary tools to start them because you end up going back to the wool, and then starting a project that has been ready to go but not started and sitting in your room for the past year and a half. Bah, what am I doing? I hope I can pull this mirror off but it has nothing to do with my goal or my 2 swaps I'm in. Or the bday presents I should be working on or the Cmas present I never finished that needs to go out with one of those bday presents... and Now I've hit a spot that intimidates me so who knows if I'll even finish it soon or whether I'll go fabric hunting for my hoops or what. I'm a mess. Curse you, Husband, for leaving for the weekend and making my ADD act up!

Yay for typing while in my post-bedtime delirium!

But one my partners at least gave the go ahead on my mystery medium for this swap. That's super, right? I should ask the other one too because I'm hoping it will work for both hoops. Ooh, aren't you guys excited?

Apparently I haven't insulted my partner yet: win!
I don't know if this yarn I've been making will be for my partner yet or not. Maybe I will make something with the stuff I've been combing but first I have to comb some more. Go figure. Also gotta figure out how I want to dye it. Yikes!
Funny: got partners for the hoopla swap yesterday and I already know what I'm doing for both of those partners but this swap has been eluding me. I'll send on time I'm sure, but probably not very early.
ZQ, you make me look bad, but I should be used to that, right?

Does this go here? I think it's too big for the Ami section.
My niece turned 7 on Monday so I finished this for her last night. Still need to mail it, eep!
Since my sister, another of her aunt's died almost 2 years ago, she has been really into ladybugs.
Her mom said she wanted me to make her one so here it is!

Didn't have enough black to make legs but I think it's just as well without. It is a little more firm than I wanted it but that's what I get for using leftover wool from my combing for the filling. Whatever, I think she'll like it. It's about 11" wide x 15" butt - head, and 7" tall. No pattern. What do you think?

Very pretty. I'm guessing she chose the green and the pink ones.
Thank you! She chose the green one with the bees and the pink one with the kitties. I hate that fabric but she loved it so she got it!
And apparently her dad can tie a better looking bow than I can. Gotta remember that.

When I was dating my husband in college, I bought a vintage cross stitch kit from a roommate and altered it a little to be me and G. He had dreads. I made it into a pillow and it has been floating around since then. I decided it needed a little revamp and I had also recently been thinking that were wasn't any cross stitching on my hoopla wall and that needed to be remedied. Hooray! Combination solution! I get extra points for combos, right?

Not perfectly straight in hoop, but, meh...

is it bad if I copy somebody elses image? I found something super perfect and I tried to make it my own sketch but it doesnt look as good as the one I googled. So is this frowned upon? My imagination isn't all that great so I tend to get heavily inspired by other stuff.

Shhh... I do that all the time! I already know what I'm doing for both of my partners and one will be a direct copy and the other is probably going to be a loose interpretation of a google image. But the first is given as a freebie on the site and the other is more just a general idea and honestly if the "designer" saw what will hopefully be my version, she would never know it was from her image. So I'm safe, right?

But generally with stitching and stamps, I just copy it right off the computer.
