31  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / M o'C Rockabilly Angel on: August 03, 2008 11:23:47 AM
I like how this came out- I kept the colours simple as she's going on a cushion.
The Mitch o'Connell designs rock my world  Smiley
Wish I had a figure like this!

p.s. The hair,wing, guitar and drum are in metallic brown thread which doesn't show in the pic's but is sweet and sparkly in real life!
32  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / eat yer heart out on: August 03, 2008 11:01:46 AM
Here's my entry- I love this phrase because it's so weird when you think about it but gets used a lot. The font is from http://www.needlework.com/xstitch1pats/html/old_english_alphabet.html and I borrowed the border from the subversive book. The anatomical heart and the skull and crossed cutlery are my own invention!
Hope you like it

33  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sailor girl- nautical but nice! on: July 09, 2008 03:29:35 PM
I had a bag that I got free with a magazine that has nautical stripes on it. I like it but it has an elizabeth hurley beachwear label on the front of it- not my style. My plan is to trim this embroidery down and edge it with some bias binding and use it as a patch to cover up the label. The artwork is by an awesome artist called Angelique see www.buzzworks.nl/files/products/SailorGirl.jpg for the original.

and a pic without flash that is a little dark but shows the stitches better

thanks for looking, soph x
34  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lucifer on: July 09, 2008 03:22:53 PM
I found this picture in a craft source book and knew I had to stitch it- all those lovely curls! Unfortunately I have no clue what to do with the finished piece- I think he's a bit too scary for my wall!

thanks for looking, soph x
35  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / guitar tea towel on: June 22, 2008 02:12:52 PM
stitch it kit guitars + a truly awful pun = my new tea towel!!
I love these guitar patterns, I'm going to stitch the flying v one on something for my brother (but not a tea towel, I don't think he's a big tea towel user!)

as requested- a close up of the lettering;
36  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / swallow vest on: June 22, 2008 02:08:26 PM
I bought this plain vest and tarted it up with a swallow from the stitch it kit and some tattoo style lettering. It was tricky stitching on the stretchy ribbed fabric, I think I'll try stabiliser next time.

and a close up so you can inspect my wonky stitches!
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sailor Jerry mermaid on: June 19, 2008 12:43:25 PM
I've been really inspired by all the beautiful tattoo flash embroidery on here. I thought I'd have a go myself so here she is...

you may not be able to tell with my lame camera skills but she has a stripy tail and uses a lot of metallic thread- that stuff is hard to use!!

close up of tail

and on the back a little bitta sublime

Cheers for looking x
38  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / flight of the conchords! on: March 29, 2008 09:30:03 AM
I made this bag for the fotc swap here on craftster. Lot's of amazing fotc goodies in the swap gallery! Thought I would share this here as well though as it was a large project for me and I'm pretty pleased with it Smiley

39  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / hare with drum on: March 29, 2008 09:24:40 AM
He didn't take long- I stole the image from site that has lot's of copyright free images (I think it's called www.fromoldbooks.org) -he was called Hare with Tabor.
I think he's cute- not sure what I will do with him yet
40  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / bird embroidery on: February 04, 2008 04:55:42 PM
I just finished this recently, I like the bird but I'm not sure about the rest
