1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Water Monster on: October 28, 2009 06:35:02 AM
This is an ami that I made from a bored on the phone doodle. He has button eyes, a felt face, lots and lots of tentacles, and little watery beads.

Robots like to be precise. I embroidered this guy on a tape measure cozy. He is just a doodle.

The other side of the cozy just has some french knots and starry things. Not as neat as Mr. Roboto here. He's made from felt, embroidery thread, and sewing thread.

Making these for birthday gifts. The photos are from the tutorial on my blog (hence why one of them has scissors in the photo). These are very simple. My next one is going to have beads! Exciting!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Newb Jewelry Skillz-- Img heavy on: March 25, 2008 05:24:38 PM
I've only been dabbling in jewelry for a few months but it's a growing obsession.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / you're never lonely with a brain slug on: November 01, 2007 11:14:59 AM
now that i look around the crochet projects, i see quite a few brain slugs.  hmmm.  guess i'm not that original lol. 

at any rate, the day before halloween my husband suggests we go to the rocky horror picture show halloween screening at which there is a costume contest.  being the futurama fan that i am, i thought it would be hilarious to show up with brain slugs on our heads with a third one we could try to stick on people all night.  with less than 24 hours, i churned out three of these bad boys.  technically less than five hours given i have a full time job and i have to sleep sometime. 

so here is my husband sporting my instant creation.  made it up as i went.  just watching some good ole futurama for inspiration. 

they look so dashing on hermes

edit:  i should add that i used a whole skein of redheart sport in limeade and a "f" hook.  white felt for the eye with a black bead attached to the middle with clear nylon beading thread.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / now where did it go? A tale of a missing piece of tatting. Can you relate? on: October 17, 2007 01:42:06 PM
a tale of woe and mislaid fo's.  i'm sure you can relate.

the day before yesterday i tatted a small pair of earrings from a pattern i bought recently from http://www.hhtatting.com/   they were teeny and cute and lacy and i love them.  i used a new thread. a variegated purple/white/light green. also from the above website.

that night, i pinned them to my foam core board for starching and left them until morning. they looked so pretty lying on my foam core board stinking of starch.

yesterday morning i picked one off to admire its beauty and starchiness, laid it back on the board and went to work. just laid it there.

when i came home, it was gone. g-o-n-e. gone. i don't think biscuit-my kitty- got it, because the foam board was slanted back towards the wall, where the cat can't get to. but... where is the tatted earring? i pulled everything out of that space. nothing. i used a high-powered flash light to search the deepest darkest recesses of the craft corner of that room... nothing.

not a big deal. i can make another one. i will just have to delay my gratification of wearing them a little while longer. :-/ so, i get the other one off and take it to the living room where i can work on replacing the missing one and admire the finished one. but first, i needed to get supper ready, so i just laid my lone tatted earring on the husband's humidor for safe-keeping.

justin, innocently enough, wanted to check his cigars in said humidor. so he laid my tatting (there was also a red snowflake) to the side and did his checking. i come along a little later, can't find the second tatted earring. it's gone. g-o-n-e. gone. the red snowflake is laying there beside some other junk.  but no earring.

gone into oblivion. or the cat's stomach. but, there's no way the cat could have prowled through all the junk beside the humidor (two vases-handmade of course by me and by my college art professor, crochet in various stages, a water bottle, a drinking glass, pens, pins, etc) to find that wittle bitty earring..... i mean.. it fits on a nickel. but it's gone. into oblivion.

now i have nothing to show for an afternoon of tatting and a night of starching. *sigh* guess i'll have to start all over.

has anybody had this type of thing happen to you? fill me in on your tales of missing pieces and sadness.  maybe i'll feel better. ^_^
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / make a little birdhouse in your soul on: October 04, 2007 06:05:51 AM
hello folks.  New to craftster and kinda new to crochet.  I was taught how to chain around age 8 and I immediately chained everything I could for years.  I'm 24 now and really just getting into patterns and actually making things. I've made the inevitable scarf (actually...loads of scarves) and a small afghan. But now I'm branching out into amigurumi and more wearable/functioning pieces for the house.  Such is the way of things. 

So, on to the pictures!
This first guy is my third attempt or so working with amigurumi patterns. 
pattern found here http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/02/19/birds-of-a-feather/

I'm making a whole set of dishrags and towels for the kitchen because my current ones are getting thin and ragged. 

Nothing special. Just a little crocheted square made out of lilly sugar 'n' cream. 

Normally I am much livlier in posts but alas I am suffering from the sinus infection that happens every time the seasons change.  Lips sealed

Thanks for looking!
