11  Black and white paint job for old dresser in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: May 13, 2011 12:59:52 PM
Hey, remember that crazy pink bedroom with the painted purple floor? Well, this is a black and white dresser to go in it! It came from the junk/antique store for $30. The beautiful brass pulls were probably worth more than that, but it had interesting lines and details, too. The veneer was peeling up, so I removed it in some places and glued it back down in others. I left it sort of rough-looking on purpose. I washed it, sanded it lightly, primed it with Killz, then used enamel white semigloss and black enamel high gloss.

12  First FO, Baby Kimono in Knitting: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: April 10, 2011 02:46:02 PM
I'm a new knitter, and I seem to learn more quickly when I have a goal in mind. So I made this baby kimono for my friends' little one due at the end of April. I'm really glad I got it done early.

The pattern is here: http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2993

The flower was from a book on knitting flowers that I got at the library.

It hasn't been washed or blocked or anything yet. I plan to wash it in Dreft before gifting it.

13  J&T Challenge 3: Steam[Pink], or Learning to Fly Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: April 02, 2011 09:56:47 AM
My J&T Challenge 3 entry is based on a song I have loved for years, Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly". I think as a Gemini and an Air sign, the idea of being one with the sky and the images of freedom speak to me. I also love the beautiful turns of phrase. Lyrics will be posted at the bottom. I also saw a great opportunity to play with the steampunk style, which I've wanted to try for a while now. The inspiration for this piece sort of hit me all at once when the song came on the radio. Of course, this challenge was lurking in the back of my mind at the time, too.
Materials are mixed metals, leather, E6000, a little paper and glass

Now some pics:

"Learning To Fly"
by Pink Floyd
Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast,
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought, I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension -- that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss

Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

16  Feeling [Pea]cocky... in Beads: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: February 09, 2011 03:54:32 PM
After several tries at knitting, I wanted to do something I knew I was already good at. So I sat down with some peyote graph paper and my prismacolors, came up with a pattern, and ended up with this:

Cuff bracelet, about 1 1/2" wide, and took maybe 10-12 hours of free time or approximately 2 episodes of Off the Map, an episode of Bones, 3 Daily Shows, 3 Colbert Reports, 3 South Parks, and a lot of WTTSFM.

17  Traditional style sampler quilt for a neutral-loving grandma in Quilting: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: January 21, 2011 10:15:16 AM
Mom and I made this quilt for my grandma for Christmas. In all honesty, Mom did most of the work. We each selected and made blocks (all hand-pieced; I did 7, she did 9) and then she did the sashing and the leaf & vine appliqued border all by hand. A friend of Mom's machine quilted it with a long-arm, then Mom bound it. What I think is the most interesting is the differences in the blocks we each chose but how the colors pulled them together.

If you're counting from the upper left, I did blocks 2, 3, 4, 5, 12, 13, & 14. All except Card Trick had curves. All of mom's except the one applique were rectilinear 9-patches.

18  Black Acanthus Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Feast Your Eyes on: January 21, 2011 10:02:35 AM
I made one, and it was so much fun, I made another one. I love the way this turned out. Based on the acanthus weave developed by Corvus Chainmaille. It's black annodized aluminum rings. The waves are a little over 1" from peak to peak.

See? Two!

19  Girly gift - monagram sachet in Needlework: Completed Projects by Feast Your Eyes on: December 19, 2010 08:02:44 AM
My friend has never had a sachet, and well, I think all ladies should have one. So I made her a really feminine floral one.

Haha, Gatsby looks a lot like Spook, our new tuxedo kitten.
Ok, as promised, my ohiodiygirl-spawned awesomeness.

First up, a zombunneh pin cushion. How cute?! He makes me smile and matches my studio, too.

Next, a shmexy roller girl painting with glitter. She's going in my room.

Finally, a gorgeous hat and arm warmers set. Really nice work, and a mouthwatering color. Mom is way jealous of this.

Thank you, ohiodiygirl!
