1  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Needle-felted Shave Ice Pin Cushion on: September 08, 2008 06:13:18 PM
I needle-felted a big old shave ice to hold my felting needles when they aren't in use. I saved the cup from my honeymoon to the Big Island and finally found a use for it Smiley

For details, check out my blog (linbtl.livejournal.com). Thanks for looking!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Scorpion Dice Bag on: July 24, 2007 08:04:30 PM
That's right - I'm devoted heart and soul to an RPG nerd... and proud of it!  Cheesy

For our first V-day, I bought a black dice bag and cross stitched a scorpion mon on it from this game: http://www.l5r.com/the-clans/. He still uses it constantly, and it's probably one of my favorite projects to date.

Pardon the image - that bag is well-loved and it shows  Smiley

Thanks for looking!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby's on deck! on: July 24, 2007 07:57:02 PM
Well folks, lots of babies on deck...I know three coming in the next two months, so I got cracking on some baby hats. Two out of three babies are mystery gender, so I had to get creative with the colors. They're all blue and green because 1) I love the colors and 2) god forbid any self-respecting baby boy is caught dead in anything but (aren't baby clothes so gender specific??)

I adapted these from a pattern in Happy Hooker:

You can't really tell from the picture, but the one in the middle one has a flower (loosely) attached. I worked it up using without a pattern (which doesn't usually work for me, but I'm thrilled it did this time!)... you know a little flapper flair for any lady babies that might come along  Wink

Thanks for looking!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Is wearing your own work a faux pas? on: December 20, 2005 11:30:22 AM
Over the weekend, someone asked me if it was "gauche" to wear something you yourself has made....thoughts?
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / All hail Noro! on: May 05, 2005 08:55:16 PM
Here's my first time working with Noro yarn (Kureyon #40 to be exact). It's just a basic hat. Nothing special (except it's enlarged to fit atop my big fat Irish head Roll Eyes), but I had to show off the colors. I think Noro's going to be my new "treat." Yes, it's a bit expensive, but if you've got the cash, I would highly recommend it. The thickness and color is random throughout, which makes whatever you're making absolutely stunning and one of a kind.

Here's me and my new hat:

...and here's a better look at the colors:

There. That's my Noro plug  Grin
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Summer Crochet Ideas? on: April 26, 2005 02:03:13 PM
I'd love to hear ideas for spring/summer crochet projects. It's finally starting to thaw and the last thing I want to do right now is crochet winterwear. Whatcha got ladies (and gents)? Cool
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crocheted hook case! (pic heavy) on: April 23, 2005 10:08:54 PM
this is my version of the "roll your own" case. it's completely crocheted (out of possibly the ugliest yarn ever created). aside from the yarn, i really like it, and it didn't take long at all.

here's a close-up of the individual compartments (running-stitched from the same yarn...edges also sewn up with that god awful stuff):

this is the edge of the flap (shell stitched with a chain threaded through for the tie):

...and here it is rolled up and tied:

when i was stitching the hook and scissor pouches, i left the ends raw...that way, you can see better where the hooks go, plus it gives you a cool little fringe.

were i to do it over, i'd definitely use a thinner (and prettier) yarn so that it didn't make such a chunky roll.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / noro kuyeron...any ideas? on: April 18, 2005 10:34:55 PM
