1  We're so pretty, oh so pretty.....we're taters! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kitty Ballistic on: March 16, 2010 01:33:28 PM
I know, that really doesn't work, does it?  Cheesy

Anyway, introducing Morris Piper*, my latest felt creation.

He's a wannabe Spud Vicious*, but his head is the wrong shape for a decent mohawk, AND he has to sneak out with a sweater over his 'Never Mind the Broccoli*' t-shirt because he still lives with his parents.

*Apologies for the puns. *shame-faced but not reallyCheesy

2  Nathan, the zombie potato in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kitty Ballistic on: July 07, 2009 11:48:48 AM
Q. What variety of potato is most likely to become a zombie?
A. King Deadwards!


Sooooo....anyway  Grin, Nathan is a bit of an outcast amongst his spuddy pals. They're not really worried that he's going to eat their brains on account of the fact that A) he doesn't have a mouth and B) they're tubers, they don't have brains. They don't even mind his unusual skin tone, although there have been rumours that his 'scar' was drawn on with felt tipped pen. Nathan ignores their comments, he knows his moment in the spotlight will come. He's just waiting for his big break - a starring role in "Dawn of the Vegetable Rack".

3  Calm yourselves, ladies in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kitty Ballistic on: February 02, 2009 08:28:37 AM
I haven't posted any of my stuff for a while, but I thought I'd post my latest make in time for Valentine's Day.  Grin So enjoy, you lucky, lucky ladies.  Wink

And in case you are in any doubt about who that is, here's the photo I used as inspiration:

I don't have any gold chain in my stash, or he would've had the medallion as well.  Grin

No-one? *weeps*

Would it help if I posted a picture of the item in question?

5  Re: My split stitch sucks in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by Kitty Ballistic on: July 21, 2007 12:13:04 PM
Would stem stitch work on patterns that have curved outlines? I've just tried to use split stitch on a pattern I wanted to use to make some cards with, and it looks dire. OK, that's partly due to my lack of stitching skills at present, but also because the stitch wasn't ideal for the pattern (I think). The circle part looks OK (to me) but the other bits look really wonky. The threads really twisted, even when I'd separated the strands before use AND let the needle dangle.

Note: This is not a finished card - I wouldn't put these colours with green, and the stitching is not secured to the card at all well. And I've just noticed that the inner circle has pulled a stitch out. Ah well - it was only a practice run.  Cheesy

6  A couple of necklaces in Beads: Completed Projects by Kitty Ballistic on: June 11, 2007 10:29:43 AM
These are my first pictures on Craftster *tiny drumroll*

First up is this pendant I made with carnelian beads. I love carnelian soooo much. I need more chains though - I keep taking pendants off  one chain and switching them.

This next necklace is a mishmash of stuff I had laying around. I've been wanting to use that seed....nut...pod thing for a while, and suddenly decided to make this necklace today:

The photos aren't great - I'm using my husband's camera, and the macro function on it hates me. Plus I'm not in a 'modelling' mood at the moment. I may try to get better pics of them 'in action' at a later date.

Anyway, there you go. A lurker no more.  Cheesy
