1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Yogurt Baby (pic obese!) on: September 13, 2009 02:52:34 AM
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!

2  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!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Funkay Alphabet on: September 12, 2009 04:29:45 AM
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!
4  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
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I has a homemade art! (Pic chubby) on: August 07, 2009 02:44:15 PM
Been going around my flat trying to catch up on documenting all the craft of the last few months....
never sure how many pictures constitutes a weight problem Tongue

You actually can't... stubborn lil cherubium.

Inspired by TF2, mine and my bf's favourite taunt of the sniper. I think visitors are a bit baffled by it at first- being the most notable thing you see after leaving our loo!

Which lives ontop of our fridge.

CC very welcome!

Did this lil bit of x-stitch on a quilted cushion for my mum's birthday
there's something so therapeutic about stitching teeny tiny stitches repetitively!

CxC welcome!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Strawberry laces on: February 10, 2008 04:49:54 PM
After many many years of wondering I finally had the thought of:
"Could you knit with strawberry laces?"
in the right place. I bought some, very cheap and probably v bad for you, co-op laces and went to work.

sorry for big size- love the lighting- makes the lace thing look extra yummy!

now i have no idea what to do with it!!
eat it or....?

10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / heroes costuming! on: September 25, 2007 03:58:04 PM
It is at this time of year my brain turns to thinking about halloween...
i've got totally obsessed with 'Heroes', so i'm thinking this year to be Claire (the cheerleader)...
i can figure out the jumper/skirt ensemble... it's just the THING to make it obvious i'm not a regular  Wink cheerleader...
thinking ribs poking out... or perhaps somehow making it look like my head has been twisted backwards? flattening boobs- creating some on my back... lol random garb-lings now!
any ideas would be so so so welcome!!
