21  My first embroidery- a dragonfly! in Needlework: Completed Projects by NyteRayn on: July 27, 2008 03:11:36 PM
Technically I drew it myself... but I did get the idea & design from "Colorful Stitchery" by Kristin Nicholas.

I know its not perfect- a little crooked, uneven.. and the stitches aren't exactly right... but I think it turned out well, and I found a completely unknown love of embroidery along the way.

How can someone who hates hand-sewing (finishing those little bits of projects that have to be done with a needle instead of a machine) love a craft that essentially nothing but hand-sewing?
Its a mystery!  Grin

Anyway- here is my little guy!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet... any suggestions?

22  The Most Beautiful Thing I've Ever Created in Quilting: Completed Projects by NyteRayn on: July 15, 2008 03:37:08 PM
I started this quilt when I was having a really tough time with life in general, alot of bad stuff was going on... one day, when I'd had enough, I started pulling out all the fabrics I'd been hoarding and loved too much to cut into- and I compiled them together into this quilt. I feel like it almost took on a life of its own- becoming more beautiful with each square... and it makes me ever so happy to look at.

Things in my life are improving, and this quilt really emphasizes the joy I can have in my life when I take the time to find it. I can't wait to finish it off and move it to my couch.
I hope you enjoy it too!

Its a disappearing nines pattern. Love it!!

I just sent in my questionaire... and these are my two babies... Zack (the tan one, an 8 year old male) & Kaya (the darker sable one, a 13 month old female).

They look like they're fighting, but really, they just love to play wrestle. Ignore Zack's teeth in that second picture- he's really just a big pansy!  Grin

Oh, and I should mention... the braided toy they're playing with was a gift from rubytue from a pet swap I did a few months ago. Ruby- they still love it!!!

This is one of my favorite "do's"... been thinking about doing it up again soon. Very low maintenance.

My stash looked like that once... then I went out and bought like 300 "comic book boards" (about $10 per 100) and used them as mini-bolts and painstakingly rolled all my fabric pieces onto them. It made SUCH a huge difference... now I can stack or stand or reorganize or pick through all my fabric with ease. I also use the tab at the top to write notes about how much I have left on the bolt and where I purchased it, etc. Just looking through my stash makes me so happy and calm now! Smiley

26  Re: UO Double Cross Back tank in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by NyteRayn on: June 24, 2008 12:17:53 PM
I think the shirt is three pieces one front (normal tank shape) and two back pieces for the back.. I tried to demonstrate the two pieces below in lazy & quick photoshop style.  Grin

Love the shirt though! Id love to see if someone tries it.  Smiley
I dont think it could be done with two tank tops- the back pieces are cut at an extreme angle to fit both straps on either side.

28  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by NyteRayn on: May 12, 2008 05:48:44 AM
My 84-year old grandmother wanted a ladybug tattoo for mother's day this year... so 25 members of my family rented out a tattoo parlor for all of mother's day, and we all got one!!

My grandmother & her daughters all got a ladybug on their foot- and the granddaughters (including me!) got our own design, but incorporated ladybugs into it.
My uncles all got whatever they wanted, but also incorporated ladybugs. The grandsons just got whatever they wanted.

It was AWESOME family bonding!!!

29  Awesome new quilting machine! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by NyteRayn on: April 01, 2008 01:28:29 PM
Has anyone see this yet?


short-arm QUILTER

Can't afford a long arm quilting machine? Want that hand quilted look with out spending all the time? The short-arm QUILTER is for you. This machine can hand quilt a king size quilt in minutes at over 3.5 sps (stitches per second).

Adjustable built in stitch regulator determines the stitch length between each stitch. Choose from these 5 settings:
Import . . . 2 stitches per inch
10ft test . . 6 stitches per inch
Grandma. . 8 stitches per inch
Amish . . . 12 stitches per inch
Husband . . Inconsistant

365 templates are built in the short-arm to choose from, one for every day of the year. For the feminine look there are diamonds, hearts, scallops and more. For the masculine look there are golf clubs, beer cans, NASCAR and bass boats. There are even some designs with a youthful look including Guitar Hero, and iPod

This machine can operate by treddle, battery, electricity or solar and will work best in a dark & damp climate. Only weighting 427 oz, the short-arm QUILTER has built in wheels so it can go wherever you want to show your hand quilting expertise.

Supplies are limited and so is this offer. Get your short-arm QUILTER today (only if your lucky!).

30  The Perfect Tote Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by NyteRayn on: March 27, 2008 08:16:55 AM
I think I finally did it! I finally (after many years) perfected my tote bag pattern! Yay!
This one I call Springtime. The fabrics are inspired by a bag I saw online but the REALLY cool stuff is on the inside- my two new secret weapons.

First off, the bag will never sag, flap or flop- because its been interlined with soft plastic canvas (wrapped in thin batting for that extra-soft feel).
Secondly, the handles will never bunch, scrunch or munch (munch?) because theyre filled with upholstery cording.

Im so excited!! Its my most favorite bag EVER!
