11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Sheep scrapbook page on: October 17, 2011 12:54:11 PM
I so miss being on the farm.  This is a page of my scrapbook that shows some of the sheep we used to have.  That is Baglady, named because even in the summer she didn't drop her coat  Tongue.  Her baby was named raggamuffin which just seemed fitting as well.  I just wanted to share a happy memory with you.  Smiley

My scanner doesn't like to do 12" scans apparently and some of the edges are cut off.  It doesn't show the stitching details or the sparkle in the twine very well either.  I'll have to find a better method for future posts.
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Stargate sketchbook on: August 25, 2011 09:18:29 AM
My friend is a huge Stargate fan and a great artist so I modified one of those cheap sketchbooks from Borders for her. 

Its supposed to look like an old leather bound book.  It says "There's no place like home" (symbol for Earth).  I lined the inside of the covers with shiny star paper.

You can find the tutorial at the Dave Lowe Design blog.  http://davelowe.blogspot.com/2008/09/halloween-08-making-old-creepy-books.html
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Butterfly Washcloth- Easier than it looks on: August 22, 2011 01:34:05 PM
Hi!  So this is one of my favorite quick knits for washcloths because its super easy and it looks so dainty.

Not sure which one shows the butterfly design the best.

The free pattern is here http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Projects/HomeDec/WC1656+Knit+Butterfly+Wash+Cloth.htm
14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Cherry Blossoms by Van Gogh on: August 15, 2011 01:25:51 PM
This is my version of Van Gogh's Cherry (and/or Almond) blossoms.  Acrylics on foam board.  I was just messing around and didn't expect it to turn into something I liked.  It was hard to get an angle without a glare in the photo so the pic is a little dark.  I think its 24"x36".

Here's the original...
15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Its Always Midnight Somewhere painting on: August 08, 2011 11:06:44 AM

I really liked this design from Threadless http://www.threadless.com/product/1181/It_s_Always_Midnight_Somewhere.  Acrylic on canvas 18"x24".
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Green Fetchings from Knitty on: August 04, 2011 08:27:46 AM
This is from the "Fetching" pattern from Knity summer 2006

I just used some random dk acrylic in my stash.  It didn't have a label on it.

17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Green vintage bike painting on: July 27, 2011 11:02:12 AM

I found an image online I liked and painted it.  I usually stick to realism and this was slightly abstract, with parts missing and messy lines, so it was a little difficult to paint outside the lines.  I'm thinking I might write personal stories about my bike experiences in yellow, really small, so from a distance it just looks like the background color but up close you can read it. The canvas is 18"x24".  If I find the original I'll link it be no luck yet.
18  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Henry the Hedgehot on: July 15, 2011 12:54:14 PM
I wanted to give needle felting a shot so I picked an Amy Thomas Design kit.  All the supplies and instructions were included which was good because I had no idea how you people turned fuzz into creatures.  So here he is.  I think he turned out even cuter than the picture on the instructions, if I do say so myself. He has a few wonky bumps on his body, but don't we all?  Wink

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / F Cancer cross stitch shadow box on: March 18, 2009 08:59:42 AM

I recently finished this for a friend whose mom passed away from breast cancer.  F Cancer is cross stitched and then I added trinkets belonging his late mother to the shadow box. The arrangement needs work but I could tell by the tears that he liked it.

20  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Victorious bunny on deer emboridery, Luke Chueh on: March 18, 2009 08:48:17 AM
I really liked this painting by Luke Chueh as seen here...
So cute yet sadistic.  Its embroidered on a tea towel.  I tried the Prismacolor technique but it washed out.
