although.... the lettering is a little uneven. :[

Hey there stitchers! I've been on craft hiatus for far too long now, and finally decided to finish up some projects and get them posted. I based this embroidery off of a google image of a temporary tattoo. I've been a long time lover of mermaids... mainly due to disney....but anywho... take a look! i'd love to know what you think :]

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Living Room Redone - LOTSA PICTURES! on: October 12, 2009 09:02:10 AM
 I recently posted our redone kitchen here on craftster, and I finally got around to finishing up the odds and ends in my living room and am ready to post. I have to admit the walls were SOMETHING ELSE to paint. We have plaster walls and they are a complete textured mess of BLAH. Anywho, please take a look!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / First Home! Kitchen Redo - LOTSA PICS on: September 15, 2009 09:50:15 AM
I've been on a super hiatus from the craft world since we have started looking to buy a house/bought a house. But FINALLY, I get to share what has been accomplished since we have bought our first home.

We bought the house in mid August and have been going to town on every inch of it. It is a 1931 cottage style 1.5 story house that we fell in love with on the VERY first round of showings.

We have mostly completed the house in just one month, but the kitchen was the first to be finished to completion. So, please take a look. I'd love to hear comments or anything you may want to add.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stag and Flowers Embroidery (Andrea Zuill pattern) on: July 09, 2009 10:35:08 PM
When I saw this pattern by Badbird, I had to have it. I think its super awesome. I stitched this off and on for about a month, and due to a new england vacation accompanied by very persistent rain... I finally finished it!

I want to display in a neat way, but I haven't been able to think of anything..... any suggestions?!

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Horse Embroidery on: May 19, 2009 10:56:02 AM
I embroidered a couple of horses recently, and made them into wall hangings. We are buying a house soon, so I decided I would work on a few things I wanted for the place in the meantime. I've really been into horses lately, not sure why....(maybe because I live in KY and the derby was recent ??) but they've been fun to stitch. Check them out - C& C are always appreciated!

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tea Towels from Swap & Andrea Zuill Monster on: May 13, 2009 11:40:32 PM
I just finished up the Set of Embroidered Tea Towels Swap Round 2. My partner, the fabulous fiberartsy, was delightful to work with and I really enjoyed stitching for her!

Also, I stitched up the monster from Andrea Zuill's Days of the Week embroidery pattern. I think I will make him say "Mondays are Monstrous" and set it in my office.

I have a few more projects laying around that I'd like to gather and post, but I am too sleepy at the moment to sift through my mess of a craft room, so, until then....

Tell me what you think!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First Clothing Project - Mccall M5819 on: May 01, 2009 08:05:03 PM
This was my very first clothing project! (at least that I have ever finished) I just recently tried to become familiar with my machine and reading patterns, so I am excited that it worked out! Although, I'd like it to be a tad longer, but still - for my first time I'm super pleased. (sorry for the crappy picture, I used the iphone) C & C welcome!

Thanks for looking!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Finished Craft Room! Wooooohooo! Pic HEFTY! on: March 01, 2009 07:32:04 PM
As a new years resolution, the boyfriend and I decided we were gonna try and be super organized this year to keep out pack rack's nest of an apartment clean. So, you can imagine my excitement planning the trip to IKEA and laying out the whole apartment. Which also meant - much needed storage for the craft room!

We made the desk in August ($20 project!  -- an old door and six legs from Home Depot.) We painted the craft room in September and this is the first time it has been workable since.... I am super excited!

Take a look! The rest of the apartment will be posted when I get all the rooms clean... UGH!
