1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Upcycled Wooden Bead Necklace on: July 13, 2010 01:51:41 AM

I usually keep the beads of my old necklaces, in case I reuse them. This time I had lots of wooden beads of different size and color. First, I colored the big ones with my nail enamels. I used toothpick to make it easy.

It took nearly 10 mins to dry, no need to varnish again Smiley

Then, I used my little beads in their natural color to make a simple but elegant necklace.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sunshine socks (2 needles) pattern added with pics! on: September 03, 2009 07:47:55 AM

With what's left from my sunshine bolero, I knitted a sock using two needles. I tried to write a pattern for it, and as it's my first attempt in English, I hope I'm successful in that.

row4: k4, yo,k1, yo, k10,yo,k1,yo,k4
row6: k4, yo,k1, yo, k14,yo,k1,yo,k4

knit  until toe part is over (my shoe size is 38 (Europe, 7,5 US) and I knitted until there is 48 st in total.
then stop yo. knit until your heel. you may add cables on the front, etc if you like.

heel part: k11. turn and p11

   p to the end
foot part is over! knit as long as you want until the ankle part
after the ankle part, k1 p1 k1 p1.. as long as you want you sock to be.

after finishing knitting, leave a little yarn and sew with the yarn needle
that's it! And don't forget to knit the second =D I finished first in a day, and the second, like in 2 weeks! So I'm serious in that Smiley

 I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think, if there's anything you'd like to add etc.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / clutch purse! on: August 05, 2009 03:51:01 AM
Inspired by this lovely clutch, and this wonderful adaptation  I thought I should give it a try and make my own. However, I used trebles for the body. Here is the result:

I like it a lot. Hope you like it too!  Grin
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / First Pincushion ever!! :) on: July 14, 2009 11:09:15 AM
I was browsing some pincushions out of millions on the net and I asked myself: Why am not making one? So, with little objects I have around, I came up with this:

I think I won't be able to stop myself from making another different pincushions!! Let me know what you think about it  Wink
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / dealing with papers lately.. on: April 13, 2009 12:41:28 PM
Recently I've finished two little paper projects  Grin
First one is covering an old tea box. I covered this box with scrapbooking papers I found here ( http://summertimedesigns.blogspot.com/2009/03/sweet-springtime-kit.html ). I loved the paper and the little bird, especially. It was an easy, untiring job but the result was very satisfying Smiley I think I will never drop such boxes again! It looks very stylish and decorative with these scrapbooking papers.

The second project was very enjoyable and satisfying, too. I made a frame for a photo of me and my family out of old magazines. I found Rolled Magazine Project here ( http://www.homemadesimple.com/en_US/homemavens.do?contentId=sep08 ) and what I can say about rolling plus these info is that it is important to create similar rolls. You can do this with the help of a pencil. And don't roll from the edges, roll from the corners so that they will be very colorful.

Thanks for looking  Grin
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Sleeping Heart (with link to pattern) on: February 03, 2009 08:49:23 AM
Valentine's day is coming close, everywhere is filled up with heart-valentine theme objects and patterns, but I haven't got a boyfriend!

So when I was surfing I found this sweet heart pattern, I should give it a try. And since I haven't got a boyfriend, my heart could be sleeping  Grin

That's my little sleeping heart. What do you think?

btw: here is the link to pattern: http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/2007/02/free-pattern-hearts/
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What should I do with this yarn? on: January 28, 2009 05:50:39 AM
Mum bought a new yarn the other day, and since then we are tryin' to figure out what should we make out of it. It gets thicker and thinner..  I started to knit to see the result, but wasn't very satisfied with it. Here is the photo of the yarn with my try. What do you think? What should I do with this yarn?
