1  Mellow Yellow Birdie Tea Towel in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by vulvatron on: December 17, 2009 12:31:20 AM
I got the new Sublime Stitching book for my birthday and this was the first project from it. I love these birdies. I put them on a cute yellow tea towel I had and gave it to a friend for her birthday. Sorry for the crappy picture quality, and thanks for looking!

2  Playing with Beads in Needlework: Completed Projects by vulvatron on: October 18, 2009 04:36:31 PM
I love the look of beads on embroidered projects, so I thought I'd try my hand at it. Sadly, I went a little crazy and beaded these flowers like crazy. The pattern was a free hand draw that I did, and I ended up framing it in the cute oval hoop. Hopefully I can exercise some restraint with the beads next time.

3  Pint Size Projects in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by vulvatron on: October 18, 2009 04:33:16 PM
I've had quite the lack of motivation to do much of anything lately, so I've mostly been working on these little itty bitty projects. I've bought a bunch of the tiny, goofy little hoops at the craft store and have been framing all of my finished pieces in them. I think they're pretty cute.

This first one is on a small primed canvas. Now that its completed, I'm wishing I had painted or tinted the canvas, first. Oh well.

Ms. Orange is super sassy and is now hanging in my kitchen.

And I haven't quite decided what to do with this birdie, yet.

Both the orange and bird are tinted with crayons. I'm getting better at it, but nowhere as good as I would like to be. Thanks for lookin!

Finally, I took pictures.

I'm doing an apron and towel set, and I'm also offering beginning embroidery instructions if the auction winner wants it.

I'm loving everything we've gotten from this unswap. I'll make sure to post pictures after the event on the 28th and let you all know how the items sold.

Those monkeys are too cute. I almost did a spit take at the blankets. So adorable.

Here's part of the set I've been working on - all from the same pattern family. I've been too slow to take pictures of everything, so this is just the first towel. There is another towel and apron that will go with this guy.

(Sorry for the terrible picture)

Thanks for all of the awesome stuff for PWCL. I'm seriously in love with everything.

7  the slowest tea towels, ever in Needlework: Completed Projects by vulvatron on: June 09, 2009 06:49:06 PM
I've been in a bit of a crafting slump lately, what with this beautiful weather, garden and a new gym membership. I think I need to pencil stitching into my calendar as I feel so far behind in all of my projects. Example 1:

Mother's Day Tea Towel that's been done since before the holiday, but I was too lazy to wash the solvy off and iron it. I'll be putting it in the mail to mom this week. I found the pattern either on Hoop Love or on Needlecrafter.com.

Example 2:

This is the first towel of a kitchen set (towels and apron) for the Charity Unswap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299258.0). I'm just about finished with the set, but again have been slacking on the washing/ironing. They're all patterns from the vintage fruit set that I found on Hoop Love.

I just love his/her little face. So cute.

Thanks for looking!

8  Last Minute Easter Tea Towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by vulvatron on: April 13, 2009 12:03:05 AM

For a while now, I've been printing off my favorite vintage patterns from the Hoop Love group on Flickr and the Needlecraft website. When it dawned on me that I would see some relatives that I hadn't seen in a while this weekend for Easter, I decided to bust out my pile of printed vintage patterns and make up a couple quick tea towels to take with me. I was happy to be able to get lots of practice on my lazy daisies and french knots. If you look closely, you can see I started on the blue towel as the flowers are a little goofy, and then got better at them once I got to the purple towel. All in all, I am happy with how they turned out. I'm especially fond of the birdie on the purple towel.

Thanks for looking!

Could this little birdie be any sweeter? It's impossible.

10  T-Rex T-Shirts in Needlework: Completed Projects by vulvatron on: March 31, 2009 11:31:48 PM
Some of you may have seen my last post with the gentleman dinosaur t-shirt for the boy. This time around I was commissioned to make a t-rex shirt for a friend and I also made one for myself. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

The cute little grumpy dino was drawn by the boy. The black t-shirt (mine) was really stretchy and it made it hard to stitch on, so the dino is a little warped. All in all I'm happy with how these turned out, though. Thanks for looking!
