Red Queen, your stuff is truly original and beautifully done!
My sexy man will love all of your posts- everything would fit into the black and purple/haunted mansion/Burton-esque dining room he has designed for when we own a house someday.

Oh, I'm glad you liked this kit for your first project. My best friend got me the "Candy Ass" kit for Xmas and I've never tried cross stitch before.
Did you hang yours proudly on the wall? I haven't started mine yet but am already trying to figure out the perfect spot for it.
By the way, yours doesn't look flubbed at all, it looks perfect!

Your dad is the coolest that he'll use a mermaid handkerchief! My dad would think I was insane if I made him one. I love the scales on her tail (fin?)

i used to make these back when i was, like, 14. i rarely cut myself, despite making them by biting holes in the can and then just ripping lines down from them, but i found that changing out the candle was a PAIN IN THE ASS. i realized there's a very good reason why metal lanterns have small doors in them. i also discovered that the rising heat from the candle tended to weaken and eventually break the wire i hung these from.

other than that, they are fun, cheap, and quick to make. especially if you use an x-acto instead of your teeth........

yikes! That gives me the heeby-jeebies!

It looks great! Did you make up the pattern yourself?

Those are adorable! And so much more clever than "his and hers." Your brother and sis-in-law will love them!

whatr stitch did you use on the mermaids hair? I luver it!

Her hair is just plain old chain stitch, made with two shades of blue (for fancy highlights...) The only stitches I used on the whole thing are chain, satin, and a scallop. I tried to add some french knots, but haven't figured out how to do them yet.

By the way, thanks for all the compliments everybody! It put a ridiculous grin on my face. Cheesy
190  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Argh! Me first embroiderin' project! on: December 17, 2004 06:25:06 PM
This is my first post though I am a long time lurker. I used some of Jenny Harts' patterns to embroider a set of pillowcases for my best friend's Xmas present. For a first try, I am very proud of how it turned out. Recently I had a lot of uninterrupted time while recovering from having all 4 wisdom teeth pulled, and this was the perfect way to get through it!
My favorite aspects are the mermaid's teeny eyelashes, the gold thread I used in the treasure chest, and- though it's hard to see- the mean pirate has a bloody knife. I have heard other people mention on craftster that metallic thread was a pain to work with, and they were right! But now that it's over I'm glad I used it.
Well anyway, I'm thrilled to be showing something off, and I appologize for the poor quality pictures! xoxo
