11  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Wallingford-area indie craft fair on: October 09, 2007 01:54:08 PM
I hear talk from time to time about indie craft shows in CT, but no one is really going for it.

I'm seriously considering doing this. However, I'd like to have an idea of how many people would participate before I start really getting going on organizing this. (Y'know, why waste my time and effort if no one is interested?)

So, if you would be interested, please let me know. I need you to be serious, though. I don't want to hear a bunch of "maybes" because that means most people will bail when the time comes. If there *are* enough of you out there, I'm willing to give it a go. Maybe we can make this happen once and for all!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / TARDIS cigar box purse! on: October 02, 2007 05:01:16 PM
This may be the geekiest thing I've ever done. However, to a Whovian, a cigar box is really kind of asking for it. The Jelly Babies are to give you an idea of the scale (and because I'm a very silly person Cheesy).

Handle detail:

It was for my Halloween costume, but I'll probably end up using it everyday 'cos I'm really quite happy with how it turned out. It still needs little feet. It also isn't lined yet 'cos I painted it with oil-based paint, and I'm waiting for it to dry in spots.

Also, do you think I should get it dirty and rough it up like the real TARDIS, or leave it as is?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pirate Illusion Baby Blanket on: September 22, 2007 06:45:32 PM
Hi there! My friend is having a baby, and she is extremely goth. It's difficult to find good gifts for gothic mothers-to-be, so I made her an illusion baby blanket.

Straight on:


All up in that skully's face:

I used the pattern here: http://ysolda.com//wordpress/index.php/skull-illusion-knit-scarf/
Instead of knitting it once in a row, I knit it 3 times. So the blanket is the skull three times in 2 rows. It measures a bit bigger than 2 ft x 2 ft. I hope she likes it, and I really hope the illusion holds up despite all the gross baby vomit and multiple washings (something I did not consider before I started it). Does anyone know if I have anything to worry about? Thanks a bunch!
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Victorian collar necklace on: August 28, 2007 08:46:18 PM
I was going to sell this, but I got eyeshadow on the back of it right after taking this picture. I guess that's a good thing cos I love it, but I have no idea with what or where I'd ever wear it.

Let me know what you think! Please?
