Thank you for all the really sweet comments!

Lol- Tularosa, thank you Cheesy my dad was stoked with what you said about my mum- she was terribly glam when I was tiny (not that she isn't now too Tongue )

LisaLady- I can't say I don't want her to cry- Wink just a little Tongue

Spunky Monkey- I didn't have all the right colours so I just picked the ones that looked right from far away- lol.

I'm finding it very hard not to crack and just go- HERE YOU ARE, TAKE IT!!
It's like the damn tell-tale heart over in my craft space.

This rocks.

I know there are a few people on craftster who are prepping for Halloween.... I've started prepping for Christmas.. someone at work told me how many weeks we have left and it freaked me right out!

So I decided to start with le parentals, This little doozy is going to be part of my mum's present.

I used http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/ to generate the pixellated goodness then went at it.
The original shot

Which is the aftermath of this photo

My first time of trying yogurt- my parents knew it would be a funny sight and this shot is now imfamous in our family

One in progress shot- was so concerned over how my face would come out!

I think I'm going to do a whole series this Xmas!
C+C Welcome!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Robo-Philosophers (This topic has a weight issue) on: September 12, 2009 05:49:39 AM
When me and my guy moved in together I decided we needed more stuff on the walls. Not having a job at that time meant that this was my self-appointed mission.

Mr Bexsus took Philosophy at Uni so I took his 3 favourite philosophers and gave them little robot-buddies
(I think that's where their ideas really came from Tongue)

We have...



(oops a little blurry!)

All the robotniks were painted with Games Workshop paints with a teeny tiny brush

C+C welcome!

I'm ashamed to say this piece took me well over a year to complete...
The pattern is from Jan Eaton's 'A Creative Guide to Cross Stitch Embroidery' (isbn:1853681229)

Having borrowed the book from my local library I copied down the OUTLINE onto ordinary paper (I really don't understand past-me) and had to work out the number of stitches per letter.
Luckily, about a year later my Nanny found a stack of cross-stitching books in a charity shop and grabbed them for me- in that pile was the book necessary for this bit of work.
so, finally here it is...

Especially proud of my M, hey look I'm in the pic too! ^_^

C+C welcome!

I love it! The Velveteen Rabbit was one of my favourite stories when I was little although I'm pretty sure it always made me sad. Ahem...
Your stitching is just beautiful, simple but not simplistic Cheesy

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / V for Very old project... on: September 12, 2009 03:09:54 AM
Here I go again,
whilst wandering through my flat (ha- makes it sound enormous- it's not) I realised just how much stuff I've made/stitched up/done that I never bothered to put on craftster... ooops.

So here we go after that pre-amble, my V for Vendetta quotable stitchery.

The frame, I'm pretty sure, was aquired at the dump and throughly cleaned then painted a glossy black.

My type transfer method was to print out the font on acetate ( we had a lot of it at the time) then use that as a template to then roller on fabric paint!
It seems like an awful lot of work and I'm not sure why I did it that way!

C+C welcome
