1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: How's my research going? @&*$% you, that's how it's going. (Cuss word warning!) on: October 03, 2012 02:42:54 PM
as a fellow grad student I believe this is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time and might just have to make something similar and hang it on the door of my office at home!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Faustus for my office on: October 03, 2012 02:34:35 PM
So as an English Grad student I have an unhealthy attachment to British literature, so I decided I needed so Marlowe above my desk to encourage me while I study...

A little bit closer to the words

and the angel

and of course the devil

I got tired of making things for other people, so I finally sat down and made something for myself! I thought this was appropriate since I had just finished setting my office up for myself at home!

Thanks for looking!

Alright so this is my first attempt at a doll based on a doll made by and given to me by my wondeful and talented cousin Anya Kase

 this is my doll I now know a few things I should do differently but over all I think she is pretty neat I made her for my niece and am going to make my neice a matching dress out of the rest of the skull and rose fabric Smiley her face is all embroiderd though so there are no small pieces for her to tear off and swallow Smiley

and this is Charlette the doll that Anya made

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My Wedding dress on: July 14, 2009 10:39:23 AM
Wasn't sure if this should go in sewing or embroidery but there is at least 30 hours of embroidery on the top and in the train and the embroidery is my favorite part I made the dress from the ground up though.

Close up on vines that went all the way around the train

The vines also went all the way arounf the neckline of the dress

the whole dress the day of the wedding

it was a simple pattern of vines and purple roses but it went all the way around the train and the front so it took a while but it was worth it!
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sock monster on: January 25, 2009 07:26:33 PM
ok so I saw something about making sock monsters in stead of sock monkeys; which, while adorable, you can only make so many. I looked at alot of paterns on the internet but then decided to just go get some socks from the dollar store and wing it this is the result and I think she is adorable!

I embroidered the eyes and mouth so that the small child I am giving this to could not pull them off and choke Smiley

The puff ball tail was actually my fiances idea

There will be more shortly she was fun to make!

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rainbow Star Blanket on: June 17, 2008 03:03:12 PM
I don't know much about crocheting besides the basics but I'm pretty proud of this one. I don't know how you are supposed to make a star so I guessed and it actualy worked that is always rewarding! Smiley

This is what you do when some one finds a big basket full of a bunch of yarn in their grandmothers garage and they give it to you at random Smiley

I think it looks great on my favorite reading/nap chair in my "library"

The crayon Ironing thing I actualy got from Anya Kase you iron on or draw the pattern then color it in with crayola crayons, the brand of crayons does matter apparently Smiley then you flip the design over onto a piece of paper and iron it on a high setting to melt out the wax and all you are left with is the color if you want the color darker color and iron again, it's alot of fun and has sooo many possabilities!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tattoo flash baby quilt on: June 17, 2008 08:33:58 AM
I'm making a baby quilt for my future neice but I'm using old bits of tattoo art for the designs, but doing it in pink and brown to match the baby's room.

this is the middle piece it's my favorite because it almost matches a tattoo on the mommy to be's back Smiley

I need a better camera but this little anchor says father

and what tattoo design collection would be complete with out the heart that says mother

Now I just have to decide on some realy cool fabric to make the rest of the quilt..I embroidered all of these and colored them in using the crayon and ironing method (which is my new favorite thing!)

I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.
