1  Re: how to actualize big x-stitched map of U.S.? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by wrenyarn on: February 09, 2010 10:44:52 PM
Here's an example crudely illustrated in Paint -


not this:

This is why I said I wasn't sure if I could call it "cross stitch", because they'll be x's but on a bigger, cruder scale.

4  lots of small things in Needlework: Completed Projects by wrenyarn on: March 18, 2009 12:51:58 PM
Lately I've preferred projects I can finish in a couple hours, (I just don't know what I'd do with bigger pieces - I don't have the sewing skills to make a pillow or bag) so here are the little things I've been stitching:

Wizard of Oz-themed pins

Hootie hoo.

And some plain ol' monogram brooches here and there. I need to get out of this funk soon, though, my sister is about to pop out a baby and it needs some fancy embroidered onesies!

Thanks for looking! :]

5  Beginner embroidery - DBZ, owl, abhaya mudra. in Needlework: Completed Projects by wrenyarn on: February 16, 2009 12:50:39 PM
I'm a bit nervous about posting! I am new to Craftster and to embroidery, but I just wanted to share what I've been doing lately..

A card for my husband, Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z. I embroidered it and then stitched it to blue poster board, the next is the same thing but on yellow.

'Owl miss you' card.

Abhaya mudra. I need to wash and iron this, but it's pretty much done. I know the hand is wonky, bah! I want to get an extra hoop, spray paint it white, and shazzam wall art. I don't know what to do with the excess fabric though, tips? I guess I was thinking of trimming it up and cutting out a round of felt to glue to the back so you couldn't see the embroidery on the back of the fabric.

Thanks for looking! My project is a small-scale version of the Flapper with Headress (http://needlecrafter.com/SearchKey/SearchKeywords_detail.php?refNum=10049) in pink, red, and white (started!) and for a friend I want to stitch up some orange, black, and white koi.
