11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sketch of reading boyfriend on: January 29, 2009 10:44:45 AM
Here is a simple sketch I made og my boyfriend reading. I just love it when we have the time to sit down and enjoy a good book in eachothers company. - Thinking about making an oilpainting out of this. What do you think?

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Alpaca stockings on: January 27, 2009 12:26:22 AM
I made these this summer after having some leftover alpaca yarn after making a knitted top. They are warm and comfy, qualities approciated in Norway at wintertime. What do you think?

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Play-mat/carpet on: January 22, 2009 05:06:06 AM
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I've been looking about and found that I'll take my chances here.

I made this play-mat/carpet for my cousin. She is expecting a boy in April and I wanted to make her and the little one something they could use.

The fabrics are all bought at IKEA, it is simply two pieces of fabrics sewn together right-to-right, one the front side I applicated a "frame" before putting it together. Inside is a baby-quilt (from IKEA as well) that I did the measuring after. I put a zipper in it for her to be able to wash it and take out the quilt inside.

I chose "gender-neutral" colors because I'm not to fond of  the idea of gendered colors used on babies and because I bought the fabrics before they knew if it would be a boy or a girl.

Thanks for looking! Comments and critics are very welcome! Smiley

14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Oil on isopor and canvas on: January 22, 2009 04:51:04 AM

Hi I'd like to show some of my work that has been standing in my basement for several years. I like to paint to express my self, and for my self so to speak, so this is the first time they are on display. Sorry about the quality of the pictures!

This one is on isopor. Got this to use as a canvas from my friend that is a carpenter

These two pictures are made out of scetches I made after a good friend of mine kindly offered to be my model.

Thank you for looking! Comments and critics are very welcome.

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First post&first skirt on: January 22, 2009 04:41:06 AM

This is the first skirt I ever made and it was finished in quite a hurry as I was going to visit some old friends and started making it a couple of hours before I was to be there. I arrived about half an hour late:)
 The fabrics are from IKEA and quite rough in texture. I liked the pattern, sort of Africa-ish to my oppinion and also it was cheap for me to try out a little sewing with.

Here it is beeing tried on. At this point I havent finished the lining properly.

Thanks for looking,what do you think? Comments and critics are very welcome! Smiley
