21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween bunnies on: October 23, 2009 06:01:03 PM
I have been wanting to do these probably since last Halloween so I finally got around to it. I got the free pattern here http://craftblog.com.au/2008/10/21/free-creepy-critters-needlework-pattern/  They are really too cute.


Bony Bunny


Boo Bunny
I made them into little ornaments.  Just backed them with felt and added some Halloween ribbon. 
22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Leaky Cauldron on: August 22, 2009 09:41:05 AM
I made this for my friend.  We love Harry Potter so I wanted to do this for her new place.  It's black thread on 16 count aida.  I got the pattern here: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts/needlework/leakysign

And here's the frame i found for $4 that I think looks great with it.  Looks a little worn and rustic--perfect for the Leaky Cauldron.

As always--thanks for looking!!!!!

23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bee towel on: August 08, 2009 03:46:31 PM
I made this towel for my bf's mom for her birthday.  I held out several of my patterns and he liked the bee one from Aunt Martha's so that's what i did.  I wanted bright summery colors! 

I love the cute face!

24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rockin' Rooster on: July 24, 2009 05:54:37 AM
I made this towel for my mom's birthday. She likes roosters because they remind her of her father.  So she collects rooster things for her kitchen.  I'll give it to her tonight--hope she likes it!  The pattern is a good 'ol Aunt Martha's. 

I kept thinking of that movie Rock-a Doodle when I was stitching it.

The little adoring fan is cute too. 
I'll have to do the other days for another occasion. 

Thanks for looking!!  I really appreciate you guys!
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "They Live" cross stitch (possibly NSFW--one cuss word) on: July 13, 2009 06:28:01 PM
Well I finally finished this thing.  I started it several months ago and had meant it be for my bf's birthday----back in May.  I finally got some free time to finish it up.  It's a quote from the movie They Live.  If you haven't see it---get to the video store/netflix whatever NOW!  It's is awesome.  Here it is.

 It has shotguns for kickin maximum ass, special glasses with which to see aliens and subliminal messages, the aliens as they look through said glasses and of course, an empty gumball machine.  I'm pretty pleased with it even though it's got some mistakes.  The hardest thing about cross stitch to me is the counting.  Go figure.  I always seem to get something off track.  BF liked it so that's all that matters to me.  Thanks as always for looking ya'll!!
26  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Time for the Annual Hospice Flea Market in Burlington on: June 12, 2009 11:09:41 AM
It's that time of year again!  It's HUGE indoor flea market that they have in Burlington once a year to benefit the Hospice of Alamance County.  Last year I scored tons of great fabric--alot vintage!, old cross stitch magazines for a quarter and even an old lap loom.  Plus if you go on the second weekend things are half off.  It is flled with things from furniture to clothes to whatever you can think of.  It's in an old mill with no AC so dress cool and bring water!

27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bird anatomy on: May 29, 2009 06:53:43 AM
I made this for the anatomy themed swap over on the Phat Quarter flickr group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/phatquarter/  I searched several different animal types before settling on a bird because birds are pretty much awesome. 

 It's about 5" x 7"

Pretty interesting innards. 

Thanks for looking!

28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / More Tea Towels!! on: May 09, 2009 10:26:12 AM
I thought I'd show the towels I made for the Tea Towel swap too!!  i only have pics of two of them because my camera seems to not want to unload the third one for some reason.  Anyway---
There's an owl cookie jar.  I used variegated thread for the vines and I like the way it looks! Its an Aunt Martha's pattern.

I love his eyes.

 Then there is a 50's atomic pattern.  i tried to use some of the same colors that were in the stripes of the towel.  I even used some metallic thread for one of the starbursts. 

The third one was a 50's housewife cooking on a stove.  You can see it here if you want https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302222.20

Thanks for looking.  You guys are great.

29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Heard it Through the Grapevine! **EDITED Added Another Raisin!! on: March 18, 2009 07:08:49 PM
Well I wanted to do something small as a way to procrastinate on something larger I need to start working on---so why not a California Raisin!!!  I know not all of you may know them but as an 80's kid I fondly remember the commercials with the claymation raisins dancing around.  Totally awesome! 

He's totally rocking out!
And just for a laugh, here's the set.  I may have to do the rest!  I just love thrift store scores!

EDIT:  I just finished the sax player!  These are only a few inches high so easy to finish in an evening. 

(dang and I just realized that I didn't cross a stitch!  I hate when I do that  D'oh!)
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beware: Sickenly cute Easter animals! on: March 16, 2009 06:37:26 PM
  I stitched up this towel using an Aunt Martha pattern with extremely cute Easter animals with their Easter eggs.   I went overboard with pastel and cotton candy colors because I'm tired of drab winter! I am ready for Spring!

Little chick strutting with his Easter basket.

Bunny with a huge Easter egg.

Chick rolling his egg down a hill.

Mr. Duck painting his egg.

Three little ducks playing in the rain.

Here's how it all looks on the towel. 

I think it turned out super cute! Hope it brightens your day. 
Thanks for looking--as always!!
