1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Aaaaadventure Time! on: May 10, 2013 10:33:27 AM
Thanks for your kind comments! It's a nice boost to my self esteem  Wink

 I appliqued the fabric on each block, no fabric paints used here! Right after I finished the quilt I finally started learning the art of paper piecing. So of course I'll have to make another quilt. Adventure Time is worth it.
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Aaaaadventure Time! on: April 30, 2013 02:02:42 PM

This quilt has been long in the making. I started working on its design in November of last year. And I finally had all the fabric I needed a few weeks ago.

I had some rainbow fabric which I used to make a Lady Rainicorn binding. And I'm glad I had that idea! I fudged up on one of my mitered corner, so it was perfect to plop Lady's face in that corner.

My favorite block by far is Peppermint Butler. You can just feel the pure evil rolling off of him!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Cotton Anniversary Present on: October 23, 2012 02:05:26 AM
My husband and I just (and by just I mean Monday) celebrated our 2 year anniversary. Aka the cotton anniversary. I admit that first I was a bit stumped as to what to get him, especially since he has more t-shirts than I have clothing (da truth!), then I realized that this would be the perfect opportunity to create my first actual-smactual-bigger-than-a-breadbox twin size quilt! What a perfect project for a quilting newbie, right?

First I cut out a butt-load of squares.

Then, after a bit of fancy sewing, I started piecing things together. Obligatory kitten photo. What is it with cats and them sitting or laying down on whatever I'm working on?

Top quilt is lookin' fine!

All quilted, complete with a hand sewn binding. You don't want to know how many episodes of Alias I had to plow through to get that bugger finished.

Thanks for looking!

Also, this pretty much rawks my world. What kind of pattern did you use? I've seen a couple up on Deviantart, but I'm in no way a good enough seamstress to even try making a pony. I can't wait to see what else you can make!

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Big Macintosh on: December 25, 2011 04:25:08 PM
My fellow Bronies,

Do you tire of the female-only My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic toys? Do you yearn for a Spike action figure, a Doctor Whooves figurine, a Gummy plushie? My husband, a fellow Brony, love love loves Applejack and Big Macintosh. He opted out of getting an Applejack figurine, saying it'd be silly (although the figurine I saw didn't seem at all like Applejack. I mean, lack of freckles anyone?)

So I endeavored to create a suitable toy in which my Brony husband could show his support.

Meet Big Macintosh. He's pretty quiet, only speaking one-word sentences. He'd give Calvin Coolidge a run for his money.

Big Macintosh was made with a lot of love, swears, hurts, mistakes, and with Amelie in the background. He is my own pattern (which will played around with).

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Portal 2 freezer paper stencil hoodie on: December 25, 2011 02:43:36 PM
Hullo hullo and a happy Christmas to you all!

I know I am a rather quiet voice on this website, so you might not remember my Doctor Who hoodie (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367848.msg4323686#msg4323686) I made my husband last year. If you do, then get ready for round two!

My husband and I are both avid Portal fans. I adore the turrets while the man-flesh loves him some Wheatley and Space sphere. Note to any people who have not yet played Portal 2 and might get miffed: here be spoilers.

Remember the ending of Portal 2 with Wheatley and the Space sphere out in space? If you can't remember, check out the youtubes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WExqkx1ogGI

Got that scene in your head? Okay, here it is...

There you go.

Now let's see it in action!

Here's a close up of Wheatley:

You can totally see his regret for being mean to Chel. Totally.

Now let's have Mister Husband turn around!

If you can't smile when the Space sphere happily says "SPAAAAAAACE!" then good day to you.

If you can't tell from the photos, the hubs is totally pleased with his present despite the fact that he has to work a full 8 hour shift on Christmas.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Nyan Cat Scarf on: October 07, 2011 06:33:20 PM
Like many people, I am on Facebook. A few days ago one of my friends posted a link on her wall of a Nyan Cat scarf, http://www.themarysue.com/nyan-cat-scarf-pattern/, and mentioned wishing she had a scarf of her own. I immediately took up the challenge! I took a look at the scarf and decided to make my own pattern.

It took a day, a trip to the store to buy some yarn (I seem to always be out of a color I need), and a few episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And countless repeats of the Nyan Cat on youtube. I have officially cute-ed myself out.

p.s. Those "double rainbow" hand warmers I'm wearing are also going to go to my friend. Two! Two internet memes in one present!

Wonderful work!

The Rainbow Fish was one of my favorite books when I was little :] 
10  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake for a Friend on: August 20, 2011 12:04:11 PM

Hi all! This is my first post in the foodie section  Smiley 

I've never taken any proper baking/cake decorating classes (although I do want to in the future once money isn't so tight), but I do have a passion for creating delicious edibles in my kitchen. In the winter I created many a cupcake, but since I live in Michigan, summertime baking is done as an absolute last resort.

My good friend Margarita had been studying all year to take the GRE....and she passed! Since she was going to stop by my flat on her post-GRE triumph road trip, I wanted to make her something special and marvelous. Thus this beauty was born.

Margarita has a love for the chocolate and peanut butter. I was inspired by a cupcake she ate in Chicago (found here http://sallagosta.blogspot.com/2011/03/viaje-chicago.html). She LOVED the cake and was able to bring some back home with her.  Smiley

Congrats Margarita! You kicked some serious GRE butt!
