12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / dad's pillow.. on: August 01, 2008 03:28:45 PM
i made this for my dad for his birthday/father's day (matches my mom's paisley)
he was born in nova scotia, i'm sure this reminds him of home...

13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / old school inspiration...in progress on: June 17, 2008 04:34:01 PM
i've always wanted something like this as a back piece, tattoo-wise.
i'm not quite finished it, but i wanted some feedback also because i'm working on a few other things as well as going to my 'real' jobs...

**which is better; split stitch or back stitch?
  the split stitch is in the lining of the roses and of the skull, back stitching is pretty much all the detailing
**do you find it looks messy when the stitches are switched up?

 what do you think?

thanks for looking!!
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / mother's day pillow.. on: May 10, 2008 03:10:41 PM
thanks to tygir's beautiful paisley (i hope you don't mind), i got inspired to make this for my mom...it pretty much took all day to do, but i think it's worth it.
(the pillow is hand stitched. i need a sewing machine badly)
it's got some lavender inside for relaxing comfort...

15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / truck pillow! on: April 29, 2008 04:56:03 PM

started with this:

this is the embroidery part, finished.

i personally love it. but i guess i'm biased
16  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / tiki man...with extra pics... on: April 17, 2008 12:02:22 PM
i did this for a friend whose leaving for a promotion and new job...
i'm going to add some hybiscus flowers to the top and stuff...
should i put the detail in around the head, like it is in the book? i find it might make it look too busy..

i dispise working with gold (any metallic) thread..but it always turns out good..

i added the flowers at the top....with my first attempt at french knots...i'm so proud..

here's the whole thing...

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / confused.. (resin vs. epoxy) on: April 10, 2008 12:34:04 PM
are resin and epoxy the same thing?
can it be used the same ways?
does epoxy bond more to things (ie:molds) more than resin?
should i line my mold with something (ie: vaseline) to release easier?
i bought some 5-minute epoxy  (it's called 'adhaero') at the dollar store. it's a double syringe and contains only about 2 ounces of liquid, combined.
..i'm just gonna use a plastic disposable cup to suspend some things inside and see what happens...

sorry about all the questions, i just want to get it all straight...
18  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / i dont know how i forgot this!! on: April 10, 2008 12:17:17 PM
i made this for a friend's sister...

it's a terrible pic, cuz of the colour of the pillow case (it's turquoise)
but the unicorn has a rainbow mane and golden hooves and horn...
i think it rules!

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / rediscovered necklace! on: April 10, 2008 12:08:43 PM
i'm pretty excited about this.
i went thru all my old stuff yesterday, got rid of a bunch of crap, but found stuff that i could take apart and make new.

this necklace is bits and pieces of a few things. it's a link necklace (that was too small) so i added a few links of a necklace from grandma (that i loved) to make it large enough. i found a cell phone charm (tacky) at the dollar store, took it apart and added it to it.

the pics don't really do it justice, it looks a lot better in person.

the whole thing...i like the asymmetrical-ness

part of the charm and some beads i added to match the amber in the other part..

good shot of the linkage between the necklace types...

big baubles on the other side..and added beads...

thanks for looking...
..for some reason i want to add more to it, what do you think?

**i just realised that i put this in the wrong forum...** (sorry)
