1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Chick Tract Embroidery on: March 02, 2010 05:37:52 PM

I stitched this for carrie_76 for the Flickr Phat Quarter group Comic Swap.  It comes from the infamous Chick Tract "Dark Dungeons," the one that says that playing D&D will turn you into a witch/devil worshipper/whatever.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Tea Towel Murders, Part the Third on: September 11, 2009 03:58:03 PM

Guns don't kill fruits.  Fruits kill fruits.

But the gun helps.

Third in my series of fruit and vegetable-based slaughter on tea towels.  This one was designed and stitched for lylmousy, in the Summer Tea Towel Tour '09.

The tomato got it before; now our murderer has struck poor, defenseless Olive.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Tea Towel Murders on: September 07, 2008 07:53:39 PM

After seeing lovely and wonderful embroidery patterns with happy -- or at worst sneering -- fruits and veg, I wondered if perhaps some of those happy pieces of produce might be hiding a dark (and mushy) side.

Every one of you saying "Aw, poor tomato"... you don't know.  Maybe, just maybe, he had it coming.

(You can see the murderer's footprints leading away from the crime scene.  Yeah, that's a sword.)

This idea presented itself fully-fleshed and dripping with tomato sauce, and it made me giggle.  Three weeks later and I'm still giggling. 

Clearly I am a sick, sick woman.

More Tea Towel Murders to come.

I sublimate my rage through needlework.  ;-)

Mea culpa... I just realized that I got my "original" idea for this project from http://www.flickr.com/photos/nocoast2005/1176076077/, "Kitchen Calamities" by Kristin Mary.  No disrespect intended; I loved the series when I first saw it, and even gushed over how cool it is.  And then I woke up to a new world and thought my idea was mine alone.

Color me crushed. Cry
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / TARDIS on a Tea Towel on: September 06, 2008 09:17:45 PM
This is a gift for a Tenth Doctor-lovin' friend.

It's my design, for better and worse, with the typeface for the "Allons-y" coming from Sublime Stitching.

Douglas Adams said that intergalactic travellers need a towel, so perhaps the Doctor might like this one?

This one was so much fun to stitch up!  You can do as much or as little detail as you want, and the girl is so glamorous!

7  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Sexy Librarians on: August 16, 2008 09:31:18 AM
I've had the immense fun of stitching up a couple of images from the "Sexy Librarians" set onto tea towels, and here they are!  I'm a n00b here, so I can't post pictures yet, but the links go to my Flickr.

Librarian 1; yeah, this one is kind of Harry Potter-themed, with an adult "Hermione" reading Hogwarts, a History
Librarian 2:

8  UNITED STATES / New Mexico / Visiting Albuquerque, Any recs? on: August 10, 2008 11:00:39 AM
We'll be in town over Labor Day weekend.  What some "must visit" crafty places?  I don't knit or crochet, but embroidery and most other needle arts appeal, as do miniatures, Asian Ball-Jointed dolls, folk art, junk/antique/thrift shops.  If you have places that are particularly inspirational in your crafting, I'd like to hear about those, too!

Thanks!   Grin
