1  Re: Monkey Love in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: June 05, 2008 07:10:30 PM

I loved doing the monkeys they were one of my first. I put the banana on the back with my friends son's name on the back. It was cute. I don't really like my stitching back then but I feel I have improved some. Can't wait to see when you finish.

2  Space Robot in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: May 14, 2008 07:53:51 PM
Okay there isn't much very special about this one. I think it looks a little wonky. I just did the robot from the Atomique Pattern on a onesie for my friends lil' boy. This is definitely my favorite pattern set. Anyways, here it is. . .

And the Back: (I kind of snagged it a little - Oops)

Let me know what you think.

3  Black Capped Chickadee Pillow - IMG Crazy! in Needlework: Completed Projects by cedarwaxwing on: February 24, 2008 10:58:58 AM
Well, sorry in advance for all the crazy pictures but I am really proud of this one.  Roll Eyes

Here is the background info. . . I made this pillow for my mom's 50th b-day surprise party. My sister Sue and I live out of state and flew in from both sides of the coast to surprise my mom in Chicago. She was so excited and shocked we were there. It was great. I decided to embroider my mom's favorite bird on a throw pillow and then on the back put a passage from the bible with all our initials. This was the most advanced embroidery I have every done. I got the pattern from The Audubon's Birds iron on transfers and can say I love them. It was very challenging for me to try all these new stitches  and shading and such but I can say now I am hooked. Well, enough jibber-jabber here are the pictures.

Here is the front. Sorry it was past midnight so it is dark.

Close-up of Chickadee

Close-up of Berries and stems. I used stem stitch.

My attempt at couching on the wings and tail and also split stitch

Little leafy border

Here is the text on the back. You can probably tell I rushed it on the initials they are a little wonky.

And I can't help myself here is my mom's reaction... Priceless!!!

I warned you about my obsession with this one and I am sorry for all the pictures. I can't wait to hear what you guys think. Smiley

4  Captain Leif Onesie in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: January 26, 2008 08:50:28 AM
My friend just sent me this picture of a onesie I made for her son Leif a while ago. I never took any pictures so it was nice she sent me one. Leif's father is a pilot and I thought the Atomique patterns would go over well. On the back I embroidered Captain Leif but you can't see it. Hope you like it.

5  Please don't flush the bird! IMG heavy. in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: January 25, 2008 03:11:10 PM
Okay let me explain. . . I have the sweetest little budgie (parakeet) named Eddy and my husband always forgets to put down the toilet lid. Since Eddy is fully flighted and loves the mirror in the bathroom it freaks me out that she might fall in and drowned one day. I know I am paranoid but other people have warned me about it. And once Eddy flew into the sink when I was washing dishes (my husband let her out and she came looking for me). She is kind of dense and loves water. Sorry for the rambling but thats the story behind this banner in our bathroom. I used the Kurt Halsey pattern and made the bird the same color as mine. I sketched the toilet myself  by looking at ours. That is why it kind of sucks.

Anyways here are the pictures tell me what you guys think. Oh, and you can totally make fun of my sanity my husband does. Grin

Here's Eddy. . .

Thanks for looking and sorry I am crazy.

6  Jet Set Sue Pillowcase - img heavy - in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: January 05, 2008 12:56:17 PM
My family does a grab bag every year for Christmas and this year I pulled my sister Sue. I decided since she lives on the West Coast and travels a whole lot to make her a travel pillow case she can use on her trips. I used the Bon Vovage Patterns from Sublime. I loved the designs. I added a Chihuahua from the Chi-chi fever because my sister's dog Tommy usually goes with her on trips. I had so much fun making this one. I hope you guys enjoy it too.  Grin

Sorry for the picture overload  Roll Eyes

The skirt is satin stitch but I kind of angled it in and tried to experiment with it.

Here is a close up of it. . .

Thanks, I had no idea what that stitch was. I am just starting to learn new stitches. That website is pretty cool too.

Thanks everyone for the great encouragement and comments.

9  Pirate Tommy - Second Post Today in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by cedarwaxwing on: September 12, 2007 09:09:42 AM
Here is another project I just finished. I love looking at everyones stuff but for some odd reason can't sit my butt down and post my own. Wink

I  did this for my sister's Chihuahua Tommy. He is super adorable and fiesty so I thought a pirate shirt would be perfect for him. The letters are actually straight I just didn't iron it out. Hence, my laziness strikes again. What do you think?


Thought I would be silly and see what it might look like on. . .

Hopefully, my sis will send me pics of him wearing it. I hope you like it.

Hi Everyone,

I have been super lazy posting lately but have new projects. Here is a Hula Girl I made for my friends baby girl. I decided to mix threads together for the first time for the name on the back of the shirt. It turned out better than I thought.
I have to give credit where it is due I got the idea for the hair from roxy nova.

Back of Shirt:

Sorry for all the wrinkles. I am lazy.  Undecided This if my second post and my fourth project embroidering. If you could give me some pointers or hints on how to get better I would love that. Thanks for looking. Grin
