1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hang On Little Tomato on: January 06, 2013 06:13:49 AM

One of my girlfriend's favorite songs is Pink Martini's "Hang On Little Tomato."

I made this sampler as a gift for her.  Because love.

If you want the chart, it's on my blog at http://contentedreader.com/2013/01/06/hang-on-little-tomato.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / This is my happening, and it freaks me out. on: July 23, 2012 12:58:12 PM
I used a quote from the movie "Return to the Valley of the Dolls" and a pattern from the Antique Pattern Library, and I made this.  

I put the chart up at my blog if anyone wants a copy of it.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The things that make us happy make us wise on: September 05, 2011 04:46:07 PM
So, I made this.  The quotation is from Little, Big, John Crowley's fabulous novel about family of people living on the gateway of the world the fairies come from.  The image is from the Antique Pattern Library.  The chart is on my blog if you'd like it.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Money Can't Buy You Love (PG-13) on: August 13, 2011 10:32:45 AM
Here's the romantic sampler I've been working on.  I think it might make a nice divorce gift.  The text is from Beau Sia's poem, "A Little-Known Truth About Financial Success."  If you want them, I've put the charts on my blog.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / May Cthulhu eat this house last on: July 30, 2011 05:51:01 AM

I made this for a friend's housewarming.  The image is a stylized version of her new house, the caption is a reference, as I'm sure you already know, to the elder god who will inevitably rise from the sea to plunge the world into horror and madness.  Perhaps I should have wished for her to be eaten first, and spared the nightmares that await, but my friend is something of a procrastinator.

I don't suppose the charts will be of much use, since this piece is sort of specific to my friend's actual house, but if you want them, I've put them on my blog.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / E-Reader case on: December 28, 2010 04:05:32 PM

I made this case for my Sony Pocket Reader out of a copy of a Lemony Snicket book.  I did feel a little guilty about killing a book, but my guilt was eased by choosing a popular book that I already own (with the words in). 
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The planets: coaster series on: April 24, 2010 05:13:00 PM

This is a set of nine beverage coasters, each showing the planets.  I'm excited, because this is the first time I've designed my own cross-stitch patterns instead of using a book or pamphlet, and frankly, I think they came out pretty darned well for my first try.  I'm already working on my next project... now that I have have MacStitch, my brain is just bubbling with ideas.  Sure, they take a long time to execute, but that's not a problem, since I plan to live forever.

You can't quite see Jupiter in this photo, I realize.  I have individual photos of each of them and also patterns, just in case anyone wants them- I've put all of that up <a href="http://nerdyneedle.blogspot.com/2010/04/planets-finished.html"> on my blog</a> for anyone who wants them. 
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Tarot cards. Lots of them. on: July 14, 2009 09:05:45 AM
I'm not really interested any more in the fifty or so decks of tarot cards that I accumulated ten or fifteen years ago, and I could use the shelf space in my library.  The cards are pretty, but with the exception of three or four decks, they wouldn't have much resale value on eBay, and I can't help thinking that I could probably do something cool with them.  I'm just... not sure what.
