 Grin Thank you!

SapphireGypsy, I thought of re-usability while I was stiching them.... I guess they'll just have to get photo frames for them next year, so they can just frame the embroidery.
7553  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Many stitched calenders... (loads'o'pics) on: December 28, 2009 06:50:38 PM
So a while back someone posted a calender they had purchased from September House Etsy and embroidered (I'll find that post and link it..... It was thejoyfojess, with this post:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=321753.0)  I thought they would make great gifts, so I bought 6 blanks and made each family member (and thier families) a calender.  I bought all embroidery designs from Ubarn Threads. Here are the results:

These ones went to my family (Parents, Sister, Brother)


all wrapped up and ready to go:


Close up of the parentals.  Went with a rainbow music theme, they both tinkle on the piano, so I thought this was a good way to go.


Close up of Sisters.  I had issues knowing where to finish this one off but I decided to stop as it was... hope they will like it.  


I don't know what this stitch is that I used to fill in the bird, but I'm glad I used it.  It looks good Smiley


Close up of Brothers.  He's a machanic, and still only 22... I thought the girly fabric on the back was a good touch if he doesn't so much like the skull and cross wrenches.....



These are the ones that went to the In-laws.


Close up of the parental inlaws:


And closer still, so you can see the tiny stiches required to do all those tight turns.... (color is off because I couldn't quite get it to work with the flash, so I just used a bare bulb.. didn't work so well either... gotta figure that out one day)


Close up of the Brother inlaws.  They are currently a family of 3, so I added the little birdy in the middle.


this one is for us.  I relate to the quote, as I always seem scatter brained, but I know what I'm doing lol  It's stil a WIP... but hey I have a few more days to get it done Smiley  Also I don't know if I like how the dandelions turned out.. I might rip em out and re-do...


Some of the designs were slightly modified, so they would fit just right in the given frame.  
The only people who recieved so far are the parental inlaws.  The MIL was impressed (she used to craft too, until her hands went wonky) so I was happy with that.  Nice to have your work appreciated!

Anyway, thank you to the person who posted the calender in the first place, they were tons of fun to stitch Cheesy

Oh and I stiched everyones birthdays on there too, so no one would have an excuse to forget!

7558  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Embossing felt? on: December 27, 2009 04:39:49 PM
I'm no expert what so ever. but in my head if you were to just rub the area you were wanting to emboss in the embossing pattern, it might felt more in that area?  does that make sense?  I may have to try it out if you haven't figured it out yet...


Ohoh... or you could probably needle felt the pattern without adding any wool, thus achieving an area of more densely felted wool?  that might work too...
7559  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / partial superwash batt, will it felt? on: December 27, 2009 04:35:55 PM
Okay so question is of course right there. ^
I don't know the percentage of superwash, but its superwash merino, merino, bamboo, linen and bombyx silk.  It's gorgeous and wants to be a scarf, but not so much a kint or crocheted scarf, but nuno felted.  Can this batt be what it wants to be, or am I best off spinning it against it's will?
7560  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: Wet Felted Slippers on: December 27, 2009 04:16:21 PM
Love em!! I've yet to jump into wet felted slippers, but I know I really want to, this might push me over the edge!  They are great!


eta: Shade of Shadow, there is a way you can make two slippers at once.  I can't remember where I found the link,   but I know it was here on craftster!
