1  Re: vegan/ veggie swap!!! in The Swap Gallery by chemama on: September 23, 2005 08:20:03 AM
Well, thealtmartha truly lived up to her name in this swap! Thank you so, so much! Here's a run-down on my vegan loot...

Here's an overview with a kick-ass card, beautiful handmade garland, a cat toy, and some magnets you'll get a close-up of in a sec.

This awesome pillow, made from 100% thrifted materials. I think this is my favorite... the back with the bunnies looks just like some of my old baby clothes and baby quilts!

Extremely cute handmade cat toy, with cat nip and animal message on front and back! (The other side is a panda, but the picture was blurry)

Vegan magnets! These are so cute! The little text ones are pet-themed and the two larger ones are these beautiful vintage images "veganized!"

Handmade local animal liberation blank book

Really original idea... a cassete case filled with blank sheets for writing things down in the car... this is going to be so handy!

Thank you, Altmartha! I love that everything you made was local and repurposed. You totally made my week and I love all of these so much!!

2  First Spun Yarn and Hat Knit From the Same! in Spinning: Completed Projects by chemama on: August 09, 2005 03:36:18 PM
I finally was able to spin using my drop spindle after some lessons from a lady in my knitting group, and here's the result!

I really enjoy this board: you've all made some beautiful, beautiful yarns!!

3  Edible Yarn Centerpiece! in Dessert by chemama on: August 08, 2005 07:25:01 PM
Thought you guys might enjoy this!  Smiley

I hosted a swap party for my knitting group last week and my friend, Corrine, brought this:

She took foam balls and wrapped sour straws and licorice around them and held them in place with pins. Then she added pixie sticks for knitting needles.

We'd like to preserve it... any ideas?

I just wanted to thank Dansk for posting this! Here's why I needed this pattern!!

My first attempt at a dog sweater, foiled by DPNs gone wrong

And now a capelet!

Doesn't my dog look like a caveman in the first one???

5  Pillow from "Hand Knits for the Home" in Knitting: Completed Projects by chemama on: June 07, 2005 06:49:57 AM
Finally got this done a few days ago... It turned out much larger than I thought it would (it was supposed to be a petite pillow for my petite grandmother), but oh well!

6  Needle Roll Case From Thrifted Fabrics in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by chemama on: May 20, 2005 12:41:18 PM
This is my first completed project from SnB and I'm happy to finally have some place to put my needles!

Here's how it turned out:

And a detail of the fabric because I'm so obsessed by it... it reminds me of my grandmother's couch!

Thanks to whoever initiated the stitch-a-long--I had a lot of fun! Here's my contribution:

She started out as Billie Holiday and then morphed a little into Frida Kahlo. I'm happy with her being somewhere in between!

I've really enjoyed this mix... I've gotten so stuck in my musical tastes that I appreciate the new stuff! Smiley

9  San Miguel--A Saint With a Sword! in Needlework: Completed Projects by chemama on: May 12, 2005 06:53:19 PM
I have the Virgin of Guadalupe in the works now, but thought I'd post a picture of the San Miguel pillow I made.


Because this image of San Miguel is so traditional, I wanted to spice the back up...


More saints to come... perhaps when I can get the Virgin to look more like the Virgin and less like the bearded lady!  Undecided

And here it is... I always think "I'm a human pom-pom" when I wear it.
