11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Stella Quilt on: December 12, 2011 04:42:06 AM
Howdy craftsterinos!

It's been a LONG time since I've posted over here and I haven't really lurked for a while either ... I've not had much time for quilting and I didn't want to be jealous of all you lovely people completing beautiful quilts.

I finallllllllly completed a quilt that I'd created a top for back in 2009. This was supposed to be for my niece's 1st birthday. She's 3 now. So instead I made it for my friend, whoopdedoo_5 and her baby that is coming on February 21, who will be named Stella.

Also, I just got a new Janome sewing machine to replace the hand-me-down (I've always had a hand-me-down machine!) that didn't like to quilt. This machine does well with straight lines and semi-straight lines. I quilted this by following every other coin in the coin stack. I did 5 wavy lines and tried to cross them over each other.

OMG I bet this is suuuuper comfy.

I love that you didn't do the stupid block t-shirt thing.  I get that people like that, but my mom has one  that has no meaning to her  just arbitrary t-shirts of random crap around the area  as an art piece. Not cool.

This is lovely and a LOT of painstaking work went into this. I can't imagine working with knit fabric that small.

Great work!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / another cake stand recon on: October 13, 2010 08:54:25 AM

I've seen such lovely cake stands made from all sorts of different materials. I've been hoarding some pyrex grey plates and some milk glass vases for a go at making some cake stands.  I also did some painting on them.

Here are my finished products.  I'm really excited for them. I got to use them for the first time last weekend for my b-day. And yes, that's naked MJ from 1984. He lost his clothes.

Thanks for looking!

After years and years and years of contemplating what this might look like, I FINALLY got my tattoo.

I decided years ago that if I ever ran a marathon, I'd get wings on my feet.  But what would they look like? Bird wings? Butterfly?  Some sort of hybrid? I didn't want something overdone or clich.

I ran across this amazing tattoo artist, Amanda Wachob, and I finally came up with my idea. I sat down with some paint and a few minutes later, the image in my head for years came to life.

I ended up going more watercolor-looking than the deep hues that Amanda uses. I didn't want it to be too overpowering.

17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: BAM! POW! ZAP! Comic Book inspired paintings on: September 04, 2010 07:37:45 AM

I think I'm going to figure out a way to incorporate this look into my ceramics. I did a tattoo thing a while back, but honestly, I can't freehand that. This I can. And it's in the same vein.
18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / BAM! POW! ZAP! Comic Book inspired paintings on: September 03, 2010 06:37:29 PM
I don't paint. Other than walls anyway.

But, today one of my twitter friends saw that I was going to be painting this afternoon (for work) and said "Oooh paint me something."  I didn't have a chance to explain before he DMed me and asked for a commissioned piece. Soooo I couldn't turn him down. After all, he IS one of my best twitter friends. Wink I would only do it under one condition: that he didn't pay for it. He's been a good friend from afar for a while now and has done a lot for me.

Well ... guys ... his twitter name is @nerdboner.  Yes. NERDBONER. Because he geeks out over comics and all things nerdy. Which is actually why I started following him in the first place. He seemed like a cool guy  and is.

SO  what better than a comic book inspired painting for him?  Not to mention, I could limit the colors that way and basically draw it out and do a paint-by-numbers sort of thing.

I decided to do a triptych because I looove triptychs.  And instead of attempting cheese by doing characters, I used typography and went sort of the Lichtenstein route (but in no way am I claiming to be half that awesome). 

Anyway ... hope he likes it! I'm mailing it on Tuesday.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
