41  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Celtic Cross Wall Art for the SO on: January 12, 2011 03:55:09 PM
I started this Urban Threads pattern back in October or early November thinking I would have plenty of time to get it finished and then....  I didn't.  So I just finished it yesterday and I'm putting it in a frame so I can give it to my SO as a very late Christmas present.  Then, since he's a Divinity student, I'm going to making him a Hamsa Hand for his collection of religious symbols.

Closer picture of the middle of the cross.

Comments are welcome!  When I get it framed I'll post a finished picture!
42  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / WWP: Litha Shrine on: January 01, 2011 06:22:38 PM
I wasn't sure where else to post this since its painting, mixed media, polymer clay...  you get the idea.  I made it for DanniQuee for the WWP: Litha Swap 2010.  (this is a tribute to how lame I am at getting my own projects posted:Smiley).

Outside of the shrine.

Inside the shrine - as you can see this is dedicated to all things bright and summery.  The goddess and the sun are both polymer clay, there's a seashell, a small bottle of fairy dust, a packet of lavender, a few feathers, and two nature charms hanging from the top of the box,
43  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Evening Ocean Picture Frame on: January 01, 2011 06:10:01 PM
I made this for the May birthday swap 2010.  So that tells you just how slack I am at posting my own projects.   Roll Eyes  I don't have a picture of it on the picture frame but this is what it looked like right after it came out of the oven.

This is just a closer shot of the sea oats and the anchor.

Thanks for looking!  Comments welcome!  Cheesy
44  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / The Madman is Out on: January 01, 2011 05:03:51 PM
I painted this several years ago for my significant other.  Its supposed to go on the door to his office (if he ever has a semi-permanent office).  And I should probably also mention that I made it before the Johnny Depp version of Alice in Wonderland came out.

He made the beaded wire that its hanging on.

And this is a close up of the detail on the word "OUT".

The front (which has his name on it - that's why no picture) says "The Madman is in.  Knock if you are in need of madness". 

Comments welcome!  Thanks for looking!
45  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Horizontal and Vertical Scarf on: November 14, 2010 02:16:55 PM
This scarf comes in at just over 10 and a half feet long.  I was determined to use ALL of the yarn I bought for this project when I got it a year ago for my Hubby.

It is named the Damn Scarf because I ripped it out several times, its still not perfect which kind of bothers me but not him, and he wanted to stripes to go every which way.  I'm kind of surprised he didn't ask for diagonal strips.  Roll Eyes

Anywho - we got several compliments on it at the Renaissance Festival yesterday and he loves it so its all good.

I'm really glad he likes it.  While we were at the Festival someone said that it looked a lot like a Dr. Who scarf (obviously minus all the colors) so now...  of course...  he wants a Dr. Who scarf.    Cheesy  Roll Eyes

Comments and criticism welcome!  Cheesy
46  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / One Tiny Embroidered Nautical Compass on: August 10, 2010 09:11:26 AM
I made this for camelama in the One Tiny Embroidered Thing Swap a while back.  And I find that I never post my pictures in the area they belong after I've sent them away to their new homes.  So here I am, making an attempt to post finished swap projects.   Roll Eyes  Cheesy

The pattern came from Urban Threads.  I probably altered it just a touch because after I got it drawn on the water soluble web stuff I swear some of the lines started moving.   Roll Eyes

Yay for E-6000!  That's what I used to make the felt stay in place and to make the blue satin ribbon stay in place.

The words on the side of the box are from Jimmy Buffett's "Nautical Wheelers"

Come on and dance with me, dance with me Nautical Wheelers,
Take me to stars that you know.
Come on and dance with me, dance with me Nautical Wheelers,
I want so badly to go.

This was my second piece of finished(important word!) embroidery.  I used krinik (sp?) with the gold thread so it was kinda sparkly.  Overall I was really happy with it.  And my hubby loved it so much that he wants me to make him a celtic cross now.  Go figure.   Roll Eyes  Cheesy

Comments welcome!  Thanks for looking!
47  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scrappy Granny Afghan on: February 14, 2010 06:09:01 PM
I started this afghan 4 years ago when I needed something to do on a 9 hour drive to Gainesville, FL.  And its just been sitting around waiting on me to pick it back up.  Its still not completely done.  It needs a finished border but I had requests to put it on here already so here it is, slightly unfinished.

And here are the three dogs that have claimed this blanket for their own...  I will get it back!

48  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ocean Sunrise Scoodie on: January 31, 2010 07:23:56 PM
Before Christmas I was walking through Target with a friend of mine when she saw a scoodie and ran to try it one and said how much she wanted one.  DING DING DING!  Christmas present opportunity!  After that I let it rest for a week or so and asked her what her favorite colors were.  She likes oceans and sunrises/sunsets.  So with that in mind - this is an Ocean Sunrise Scoodie that she wouldn't even take off long enough for me to get pictures of.

In action!

From the back - the giant tassel helps it not look so much like a pointy elf hat.

The goofiness continues...   Cheesy

All the colors from top of the head to the bottom of the scoodie.  I didn't realize how much of a pattern the varigated yarn was making when I was adding it to the scarf.

For the pattern I just used the hooded scarf pattern from Lion Brand's website and altered it so that I worked it shortways instead of longways.  Shortly after I gave this one as the Christmas present I had two more ladies at school order one and they're actually paying me for it!   Shocked  Huzzah!   Cheesy
49  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Stripey purple and teal shawl on: November 16, 2009 06:50:44 AM
I made this for an angel package. I love making these shawls.  They easy and they're soooo comfy and warm!

Thanks Mom for helping model!!

Please pet me!  Pay me some attention!

I couldn't pick one color to go on the end so I did one end in purple and gray and the other in teal and gray.

Questions and comments welcome!  Cheesy
50  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I'm feeling a bit Crabby! on: July 30, 2009 07:01:07 PM
I found this pattern in the July/August 2009 issue of Crochet Today! and since its summer I thought it would be fun.  Cheesy

Up close and personal with the Crab.

The shell pieces and the legs pre-assembly!

Stuffed Crab claw.  This was probably the hardest part of the whole pillow!

The finished product!

I'll be honest, I didn't follow the pattern to a T but....  who does when they're being creative??  

Comment and critiques welcome!  Cheesy
