1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / old fashioned yarn hangers! on: March 21, 2010 07:54:20 AM
I used to make these with my grandmother when I was young. It's really easy you basically cover two metal hangers with two different colors yarn. -Using simple knots. I can't remember the name of the knot (it's been a while since Girl Scouts!) but I plan on making many more so I might upload a simple pictorial if anyone's interested  Smiley

anyhow I made these dozen for a bridal shower gift!





*they are great for items that you want to hang but don't stay on a normal hanger
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilt for Florida baby! on: March 13, 2010 10:02:55 AM
I made this for my high school BFF's baby. They live in FL now; so I thought this lizard batik would be perfect for beach bummin'!  Wink

can't wait to send it away!







hope you enjoy it too!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Placemats for Dad on: January 30, 2010 09:25:11 AM
My dad wanted some new placemats for his new pad in Rosemount, and he lives right next to a mill so I thought this wheat field fabric would be nice. I could've made these faster by not doing patchwork but I wanted to make them like tiny quilts  Smiley

hope you like them!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tartan skirt turned vest on: January 24, 2010 08:52:14 AM
This project was for my mom-in-law. She had a vintage family Tartan skirt that a mouse found and chewed a hole through. The skirt didn't fit to begin with; so she asked me to transform it into a vest she could wear. This is my first vest ever, and I didn't use a pattern just winged it you know  Wink

I hope you like it! The tartan is for the Scottish Hume bloodline within my husband's family~


*notice the pocket!

it's a fit!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Alas, my craft room is complete! on: November 22, 2009 09:04:41 AM
I've been dreaming of my own craft room for so long, and buying a house enabled me to execute my vision! I was previously sewing in an unfinished basement; this change was much needed.

I crammed my stamping & sewing stuff in here; the bags of batting and beading bins had to go in the furnace room  Huh I had no idea how much craft stuff I really have! Nonetheless, I couldn't be more happy with my new haven:











and of course, the obligatory self-timer pic  Wink


Can't wait to work some magic in here!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Clover Blossom Quilt on: May 22, 2009 04:33:45 PM
I just finished this quilt, in perfect time to take to my mom in Cali. -flight leaves in 3 hrs! It was her birthday yesterday. and I haven't seen her in over a year, so I'm really excited! This is also my first "not-just-squared" quilt. It's a slightly modified version of this: http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CloverBlossomBlock.html

here it is~






 off to packing! 
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / quick cards on: May 02, 2009 11:53:09 AM
I had to whip up some wedding cards rahter fast; I have a reception today & another in one week.

So I came up with these~



it's kind of hard to see the ribbon, but it says True Love





and while I was at it I also made two mom's day cards, since both mine & the hubby's mom's live out-of-state, and we need to send their gifts asap!

(Happy Mother's Day stamped inside)






hooray for paper crafts  Grin
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Puppy Baby Quilt on: April 01, 2009 07:01:00 PM
I was so excited when I finished this baby shower gift for my g/f Joanna, that I wrapped it without taking any pics! Ha! So tonight when she opened it I got some  Wink

I used the cutest puppy fabric ever!







She loved it!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first hoodie on: February 08, 2009 12:53:05 PM
Alas, my first hoodie is complete!

I got this electrifying print while shopping with alli.illektro; and thought it was perfect for a hoodie. I lined it with this teal jersey knit I picked up for 25 cents at a church rummage sale. I always like an over sized hood, and decided not to add a pocket since it's more a of a tight fit hoodie.

Used this pattern from Burda: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/542
(thanks Alli for reminding me I don't need a ring collar for the hoodie version  Roll Eyes)















10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Andy Warhol Valentines on: February 04, 2009 04:16:01 PM
I finally used my new Warhol stamp on some Valentine's!

I used the clear resist pad, a roller to apply the (colorerd) ink, and glossy paper. For stamps I used Andy, victorian letters, and a set of random retro chairs & TV sets.



I tried my best to capture their beauty, the glare is impossible to avoid!



LOVE ANDY,






I am pretty pleased with the outcome, and hope you like them too!
