I still haven't managed to get to the craft store to buy an embroidery hoop, but I've finally decided on a fabric and design. Starting soon...

Hi lurv2knit--I was amused to see that we both put no brown as our color guidelines; I'm glad I can embroider in colors I like. Hmm, now I have to figure out how to get to AC Moore to get the correct size of embroidery hoop...

Just sent in my questionnaire; I'm glad to have a new project--can't wait to see what my partner's tastes are.
Also, my house right now is all decorated with black and white photographs in silver or black frames, so it will be nice to have something round and thready on the wall for a change!

My sister made a borg queen costume a few years ago; here's the topic: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274188.0. It was a pleather corset, and looked awesome...
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!! on: July 11, 2010 08:25:34 AM
I'm going to go ahead and post pictures of what I sent, although the pictures are kind of bad since I finished my project right before I left home and made my dad take the pictures after I left...

WoW Horde cross stitch:

And it's the lid to a box, which was not adequately photographed. Here's the bottom, but it's bluish and prettier on the inside:

The long dimension is 4 inches (well, maybe a bit more. Basically 4 inches). It was fun to make an object instead of just cross stitching.

By the way, I love the couple of pokemon crafts on this thread that have a little pokemon coming out of a pokeball. Cute!

Almost done! Hope to finish it tonight. I got intimidated by the awesome stuff already in the gallery and made my project go from 2D to 3D.

Sorry I haven't posted; I've been without internet for a while. I am probably halfway done with the thing; just only managed to buy the supplies a few days ago. It's for a game I don't play, so it's very weird to craft in public and know that people will think I play this particular game...not that most people have great video game literacy...
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Graduation presents on: June 19, 2010 10:40:39 PM
I made academically-themed graduation embroideries for my three closest friends at Amherst. The first one is for my friend who wrote her thesis on coevolution of Caribbean hummingbirds and heliconia flowers. I tried applique for the first time for the flower--is there actually some easier way to do this then folding under the edges and just sort of sewing it on? Stitches used: satin stitch, long and short stitch, and...chain stitch, I think. I regret the spot of the wing in which I mixed black and green satin stitch; I thought it would look cool, but that was quite wrong.

This embroidery was based off a photo by another friend of mine (he's an excellent photographer):

The second embroidery is the ipa vowel chart for my friend who is going into linguistics. Sorry about the blurry picture. The stitches used are backstitch and...chevron? Not sure what the border is called.

The third embroidery is an outline of Freud in backstitch for my psych major friend, but I can't find a photo of it. It was very simple embroidery, but I think it turned out nicely...I'll edit this post later if I can find a photo.

29  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Japanese Tea Garden on: May 26, 2010 01:27:33 PM
This quilt is fantastic! The color choices are wonderful, and go really well together. What pattern did you use, or did you design it? I can't tell whether some of the blocks have applique or whether they are all pieced together...
