1  Mini Scene Display Stand in CHALLENGE 97 ENTRIES by rhinestic on: April 07, 2014 03:54:08 AM

I guess this challenge comes at the correct time! I have been putting off this project time and time again, but this challenge finally gave the extra push that I needed to eventually start and complete this project!

I was planning this tiered display stand out of the need to organize some of the souvenirs I have gathered from overseas. The idea to put some decor in the "supporting" glasses/vases is nothing new, but I thought to push it up a notch by creating a mini scene within the glass and finishing the entire thing with braided yarn. =)

There are 3 "layers" within the mini scene. The pond (polymer clay fish and water plant + resin), the water surface (paper boat) and land (crochet seedling + white colored mini decor stones), and finally the cloud layer which I made out of small pom poms. Smiley

All the new Ninnis are awesome! I've finally received Miss Smith's package too!

She's such a beautiful darling!

I think she's sensed something......

Oh! Looks like my test Ninni has taken a liking to her! Lol!!

Miss Smith also sent me a few other goodies!

Some paper tags~~

Really amazing macaw (I'm guessing) fabric strip

And this super cute wristband that I adore!

Thought it'll be interesting to post a montage of my steampunk ninni that's adopted by Miss Smith, Miss Smith's beauty that I've adopted and my test steampunk ninni:

Have been doing up a practice piece for the past 2 alternate nights to test some ideas. Here's an initial stage of the practice piece:

I've finished the test piece just a while ago, and can finally start on the actual Ninni tomorrow!

4  Fair Isle & Lace Fall Dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhinestic on: January 06, 2011 06:39:55 PM
Oh, my. It's been a long time since I last posted on craftster!

Went to Taipei last month to welcome the New Year. Too bad I felt unwell on New Year's day and practically wasted my last day there. LOL.

Anyways, as Taipei temperatures is usually not too cold in the winter (it usually doesn't go below 10 deg celsius), I decided to knit a short sleeves Fall dress from this Rowan Wool Cotton blend. I could always layer another piece of cardi or jacket if it would get too cold. I adapted 2 garnstudio patterns to create this Fall dress:

A closer look (I had a thing for Fair Isle recently.. haha):

Specially made for one of my best friends as her wedding gift.  Grin
My friend loves the color green and is a nature-lover, hence I've created this design. The necklace is made of swarovski crystals and handcrafted resin-clay roses. Cheesy

I've used a heart toggle clasp... ^.^

My friend will be having her wedding in about 8 hours time. Hope she'll like this necklace.... ><

Took some ideas from you guys and transformed the look...

Looking kinda punkish...

I like this look better but I would be happier if the ribbing ends lower..
