1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first Starghan! on: March 18, 2009 09:10:10 PM
I've been checking out all these totally cute starghans all over craftster and decided to make one of my very own.

Here's my WIP photo:

And a few finished:

And a shot of me holding it up, trying for an idea of scale (I'm 5'6''):

I'm pretty pleased with it  Grin
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / 2 Hour comfy skirt- Made to be extra roomy on a sz 14 on: January 15, 2009 07:01:17 PM
Hello Ladies! (And gentlemen!) I'd like to show you my very excellent, nice and toasty 2 hour skirt. All you need to make this is a few yards of flannel (3 different prints) some ribbon and a very cold night in Pittsburgh!

You see, I have loads of super cute skirts for spring/summer. Unfortunately I do not have any for winter! And being bitter cold I needed a skirt to just, hang out in. I wanted something warm, soft and loose. So, here it is, my 2 hour comfy skirt!

Close Up, so you can see my super cute flannel!

I hope you like it! Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mala Beads, repaired and revamped! on: January 11, 2009 08:44:25 PM
Hello Craftsters!

Almost three years ago a troop of tibetan monks came to my University Campus. They did many musical performances and spent most of their week at my campus working on beautiful sand mandalas. As part of the very small religious studies department I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with them, I was part of a number of large dinners and even had the opportunity to play basketball with them (by far, the most polite game of basketball I've ever been a part of). As part of their troop they sold Malas, made by themselves and their brothers back home. I bought a string of sandalwood mala beads that have not left my wrist since I bought them. They're like a security blanket for me, a meditation tool, basically just something that has become a part of me. A month ago, they broke. The beads scattered all over the sidewalk, I lost a number of them. So, I went out, bought a string of Moss Agate (one of my favorite semi-precious stones) a Lord Ganesha medallion (my patron god) and re-strung my beads. I can not tell you how relieved I am to have my beads back on my wrist. The number of beads I lost ended up working out perfectly so that I could still have a string of 108 and have even groups of sandalwood between my moss agate. I'm so stoked about how they turned out, I figured I'd share them with you!

Enough talk, here's the pics!

They wrap around my wrist 4 times

I hope you like them!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Coexist Cross Stitch (WARNING: SWAP PARTNER, image chubby) on: December 10, 2008 08:45:12 PM

WARNING: No Peaking Phildude!!

Okay, so ladies, this is only my second cross stitch project, and it's the first pattern that I've designed myself. If anyone would like it I'd be happy to scan it and up load it. You may've seen the bumper sticker that I based this on. And, like any good religious studies/ craft geek I had to give it a shot. Well, without further adieu, here it is!

What do you think? (Please forgive the wrinkles, I havent taken any pictures of it now that it's been ironed and framed)

Detail shot

Finally a picture of the piece with a sharpie, for size comparison.

I'd really appreciate any feedback I can get, like I said it's only my second project... my first was from subversive cross stitch, and had been designed by some one who knows what they're doing.

Thank you for looking!
