11  Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2014 in Needlework: Stitchalongs by jexxican on: November 07, 2014 12:48:49 PM
Ask and ye shall receive! I asked for inspiration, here it came.
I decided to organize all of my sewing patterns the other day and finally decided to go through this random ANCIENT box my mom gave me. HOLY CRAP. I am going to inundate you guys with pictures of my vintage iron-on-transfer embroidery patterns and you guys are going to tell me what to stitch up this month and how because, really, I'm so excited about it I don't know what to do. And this totally fits here because I'm requesting help with my entry for this month's SAL theme.

Let's start with the envelopes. Apparently my great aunt and Great G-ma were subscribed to some kind of monthly needlework club. So cool. These are so old, they don't even have zip codes, y'all.

Can you guys see the patterns on these? There are ducks and puppies and alphabets and Mexican stuff... Holy cow.

"Less than 2 cents a week!" it says!

I want this 50 State Floral Panel they are advertising!

These are what I'm really excited about, though I didn't get the one that says "BAKE" in there:

And these:

There are also a bunch of pillow case designs and stuff but I'm not really feeling those right now. What do you guys think? Are you excited for me? I think I want to do the kitties and Sun Bonnet Sues as dishtowel sets for my mom and her cousin Suzie, who is May's daughter, but would that classify for the hoopla-along? I will probably do that eventually anyway. Maybe I should start with something easier and lighter for this thread and just do a small hoop with some flowery stuff? Or use the big patterns--like the flowers/basket in the second photo--and applique with them?

12  Halloween! in Felting: Completed Projects by jexxican on: October 31, 2014 09:00:29 AM
I made these inspired by the Hoopla Stitch Along. Yay!

The skellies are some leftover alpaca/angora singles that I needle felted onto to felt.

And the punkin has 3 layers of different colors on the body of it.

And it's dimensional! WOAH!

This was fun.

You guys have good ideas. I like this SAL.

Hey! Here's my guys finished, along with what I was originally wanting to put in the middle: a needle-felted punkin! I'm not fishing for another entry for the prize, I promise, I just wanted to share. I think the purple ties them together nicely.

So while trying to get my kid to do his school work I need little projects I can keep at the table with me so I can keep henpecking him. It's terrible. I can't even wash dishes while he is working! That's why I made these.

I can't finish the hoops because I can't find my freakin' glue gun but the "stitching" is done. It's needle-felted alpaca/angora yarn.

I sent a little girl holding onto... something...

and it turns out she is holding the moon, thanks to Ao'C's son's imagination.


Here is the tree she sent me:

The finished project is due to arrive Monday! I'm so excited! Just a disclaimer: I was completely sober when I planned and stitched it. Just be warned it might not seem so when you see it.

This is what I have so far on my dragon! Well, I am working on the antique very light blue now but I'm working by color.

Photo taken in the parking lot of a DQ on our road trip. So little time to stitch now that we're not road tripping!

No, no feces.

KittyKill, I know I said it in the thread you made just for that hoop, but your little rabbit girl really is great and her hair is done so well.

And here is my August hoop! It was inspired by this pin.

I crocheted the string on there. I've never blended colors before and I know this isn't perfect, but seeing as it's my first time I'll let it slide. There's always room for learning hoops. Hurrah.

Here he is! My hoop from July, that I started and finished in August. In June we had an amazing lady from Carlsbad come and teach us about cleaning raw alpaca fleeces, and while she was here she told us that people have started eating llamas and alpacas. I didn't like that idea so when I saw that July's theme was "food related" this popped into my mind. I know it's too late for it, but I still wanted to share him.

19  1 August 2014 Fiber Friday! in Spinning: Completed Projects by jexxican on: August 01, 2014 09:52:18 AM
Where is everyone? Look what I've been doing!

Spinning that brown alpaca from a couple weeks ago at the market. 1/2 of the fleece gave me this weighing in at 10.6 oz and ~450 yards:

better color shot:

And I've continued to clean and dye some white alpaca fleece.
The purple fractured but I like it, and the pink only dyed on the one side of each bag, weird. I had 2 bags of each color and one of the purples came out much stronger than the other. Love it!

And a happy rainbow in a box! I need to sort out 4 more bags of white and then I'm gonna card them. Hopefully I will get them spun up and then ply the single with a silver strand of something. I'm so excited! Right now it's call Unicorn Sh*t in my head, but I'm sure after I spin it and have to tag it I will have a better name for it.

20  Dye balloon fight! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by jexxican on: August 01, 2014 09:44:45 AM
I filled some water balloons with RIT dye and we had a fight. I had bought some white shirts for each of the family just for this occasion.

And after i dried them, then washed them a couple times:
