1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Link and Zelda Valentine's Cross Stitch on: July 04, 2011 12:10:47 PM
I whipped these two little guys up as a Valentine's Day present three years ago. I thought they were lost forever but I finally found them. The pattern is not an original but I can't remember where or who I got it from. I think Craft: Magazine's blog featured it? Hope you enjoy!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Adventure Time rubber stamp on: May 24, 2011 01:34:35 PM
I made an Adventure Time stamp of Finn!

I didn't like the way his facial features came out so I decided to get rid of them and just doodle in expressions.

I'm thinking of doing the whole cast of characters soon.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Crewel Flowers on: May 17, 2011 08:56:27 AM
I'm packing up my apartment in preparations for a move out of state. As a result, I found this piece that I finished about two years ago.

This was from a kit I found at the local AC Moore. I was surprised to find a needlework kit that was cheap and cute. I've got to find a frame for this.

I'm not usually a flowers kinda gal but I like these. I'm happy to know that there are some kits out there that aren't totally lame.

Thanks for looking!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Terrarium-o-rama on: May 06, 2011 06:27:32 PM
I live in a tiny apartment and my sister (also my neighbor) has claimed the small backyard as her domain. No biggie since I have plant commitment issues. So I decided to make a terrarium since I think they're infinitely cooler (she's my older sister and therefore, a booger) and low maintenance.

I also have a thing for collecting figurines so this is a great way to use them.

My cat, on the other hand, thinks it's dumb.

Buddha seems happy and that's all that matters.  Grin
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Portal 2 Lemons Cross Stitch on: April 29, 2011 06:00:53 PM
Last night my husband finished playing "Portal 2" and the brainwave to make this cross stitch. The inspiration for this comes from [WARNING: SPOILER ALTERT!] Cave Johnson's last rant over the PA with Caroline/GlaDOS.

Here's a close up shot:

And a picture of the back:

I did this on the fly so the spacing is a little off. I feel like it needs a little something extra, but I'm not sure. Also, if there's enough interest, I can jazz it up and write up a pattern which would be posted here and possibly on my blog. I hope that other Portal 2 geeks get the joke.
6  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Kool Aid Fruit Punch Sock Yarn on: April 27, 2011 08:48:07 AM
I won a sock dying kit about two years ago but I never got around to using it. I didn't like the colors the kit came with (shades of mud brown, really?) but I had heard of dying yarn with Kool Aid. My mom was super skeptical that it would work but it did!

Kool Aid Yarn by NessaMcTastic, on Flickr

It's three skeins of sock yarn, 100% wool. I used one packet of Kool Aid Fruit Punch for each skein and zapped it in the microwave for 2 minutes. The inside of the skeins are a lighter pink while the outsides absorbed more color. I kind of like how variegated it came out and that the three skeins are not uniform in color but still close enough to mesh well. I plan on knitting a baby sweater out of it.

Now if I could only get rid of the kool aid stains on my hands and countertop.  Undecided Suggestions?
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Crib Quilt on: April 20, 2011 11:12:30 AM
I made this crib quilt from a kit I got at AC Moore. This is my first time quilting.

Not sure what to do with this quilt since no one I knows has a kid and my cat has no interest in it.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Apron on: April 20, 2011 07:59:41 AM
I'm still learning how to sew on a machine and this was my first project. I made it last summer.

Hope you like it! The pattern was one that my mom made up on the fly.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tempting Sweater on: April 19, 2011 04:38:49 PM
Hi everyone!

My first sweater was "Tempting" from Knitty. I made this about two years ago but I finally got around to photographing it. This is mostly a swan song for the sweater since I accidentally threw it in the washer AND dryer so now it's shrunk and felted.

I made it out of Cascade 220 in grey. Goodbye sweater! You were a big hit at the party I wore you to.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / What a melon on: June 24, 2009 10:16:54 AM
Hi everyone! I'm usually lurking in the embroidery boards but now I've finally gotten around to taking pictures of my jeweled creations.

Criticism and comments are welcome, especially if it's about taking better pics!
