61  Re: Fill A Purse Swap Round 4 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by PaleAngelLex on: May 18, 2009 02:59:24 PM
Yey! I'm glad you like it all. I figured a big bag would be good for a knitter. I wanted to make you a needle organizer, but I thought it would be too hard, so I did the apron because I saw all the cupcake pictures you posted. Also, after making the apron, I think it would have been just as easy to do the needle organizer.

I love the Octopus!  Is that hand embroidered?

Yep, I did it during class:)

And I do have some pictures since you asked I'll gladly post.

I felt bad because I didn't know anyone with a Touch, so I didn't even know if this would work. I sent the snap for the bottom, and the velcro for the top (don't need a snap on the glass part). I hope you don't mind too much about that.
SO Glad you like everything! I've been going nuts wondering.

Wow, you're right! I never saw the dragons before, and I've been starting at it for a long time.

I got my stuff today!!!! OMG! I was walking out to the the mail, and the mail lady was waking up the sidewalk with a box and I was like. "OH! OH! That's mine!"

mljohnston, your knitting skills put mine to shame, but just to prove that to everyone, PICTURES!! (I went a little photo crazy)

I saved that tissue paper by the way:)

It came with this awesome little matching card.

This is was what was inside! All the fillers are still in there, and omg the bag is so freaking awesome! I love the color, and the stitch that you used! I also adore the star button.

Here's what was waiting inside for me! I was like, it's a book, it's a book, and then I was like. It's the Doctor! It's the Doctor! It's also an awesome book mark that I will be sure to use. Did you make that too?

This is a totally awesome little coin purse. The stitches are so perfect, and she even switched from garter stitch to stockinette when the bag folds so it folds nicer. Awesome!

This is my new awesome pencil/pen pouch. The lining matches the lining in the purse, and it even came filled with skull pens and a skull pencil! I wish school wasn't over so I could break this out during class.

Here's the purse not  full of fillers. It's so pretty, and soft, and I love it!

Here's a shot of the lining. This bag is the perfect size by the way.

And here's a shot of everything together. Including the bandages. They even came with a little toy in side. I'll put them with my Unicorn ones made by the same company. Also, I think the Doctor and Rose look great poking out of the bag.

Thank you so much mljohnston. You made my first swap truly awesome and enjoyable. I can't wait for you to get your box now!

Since mljohnston was so kind, I have some teaser shots after all, now that it's all shipped and everything.

By the way, I am also digging the Alice fabric, and the other rest of that package. It's been great seeing everything!

64  Cupcake Quickie in Needlework: Completed Projects by PaleAngelLex on: April 20, 2009 10:20:08 AM
The friend I made my mushroom for wanted me to make her something else. This is what I get for sitting around and not doing things like homework. Anyway, she told me to make her a cupcake. I sketched one out on some spare fabric I had in my bag hoping this would be nothing more than a quick project. Turns out I didn't like it as just lines, so I filled it in and tripled the time it would have taken me to make this.

Here's the best picture I've been able to come up with while here at school.

Below is a close up. I'm not too happy with the way the wrapper looks I know I should have gone over it more at the time to get rid of the green, but I didn't. *shrug*

65  Lemon Make it better Honey. in Recipes and Cooking Tips by PaleAngelLex on: February 17, 2009 06:16:19 PM
So my day was not the greatest. I was kind of depressed, but that doesn't get me off the hook for making dinner. I went to the freezer and found that chicken wings would be the fastest thing I could thaw(without a microwave, as mine is broken). This is what I ended up with.

The glaze I made was:
Juice from 1 quarter lemon
1 1/2 Table spoons Honey
Diced Jalapeno pepper to taste

They baked for 30-40 minutes at 450, turning once half way through.

The pepper got a little too toasty, but the taste did cheer me up. It turned out to have a tangy sweet taste. The lemon juice cooked away leaving the honey behind, but it wasn't nearly as messy as it sounds.
Thanks for taking a look.

66  Things That Aren't Homework (but should be) in Needlework: Completed Projects by PaleAngelLex on: February 10, 2009 02:57:00 PM
I end up with a lot of time between my classes that I should use to do things like reading or paper writing. Instead I do things like make this.

My friend found one of my doodles and asked me to make this for her. She's in the art program, and good at what she does. She told me to make it even after I whined about not being able to draw things more complex than a mushroom. She also picked out the colors, and I'm very thankful she pushed me because it's really cute!

This is what happens when you leave me alone at school for an hour with left over plushie making supplies. If it doesn't quite make sense, I've included a link that will explain.


Thanks for looking:)

67  Celtic Knot Valentine in Needlework: Completed Projects by PaleAngelLex on: February 04, 2009 05:04:51 PM
I made this for my boyfriend at the time. It was my first cross stitch that wasn't based on a pattern I had bought. I worked the pattern out myself based on a necklace charm of a Celtic knot. I thought I did pretty good even if it didn't look exactly like the charm. I was getting it all ready to send to my boyfriend (it had turned into a long distance thing), but my mom saw it and went on a rant about how I couldn't give it away. Turns out that was for the best; the relationship went south, and I got to hang on to something I worked very hard on.

I tried turning the flash off to see if I could get a better picture. I think the next skill I pick up will have to be photography.

68  Dice Bags in Needlework: Completed Projects by PaleAngelLex on: February 01, 2009 06:00:00 PM
Dice bags have always been something that I make and give away. It's just such a great gift for all the table top gamers in my life because they are easy and useful. This year I wanted to make them extra special. To do this, I looked online and picked up a few basic stitches of embroidery. This is what I ended up with.

This bag was actually a request that I've been sitting on for about a year. I was going to do it in aplique, but this turned out to be a lot easier. Sorry the picture quality isn't so great.

I also made this one for another friend of mine. I think it turned out well.

You can't see it in these pictures, but the inside is also done in a contrasting fabric. I'd get better shots, but these projects have already been sent to their new home.
