I looooove Hyperbole and a half, and this is a fab embroidery.  It's an incredibly accurate rendition of me in craft shops.   Grin

I think it's great - love it!  It's amazing to see such a traditional style used in such a modern way.  You've captured its expression really well.
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Franken-spinning wheel! on: June 08, 2012 02:10:52 AM
Whoa!  This is incredible - love the Franken-wheel!  I'd love to see how you made it, but my mechanical skills are pretty poor, so I'm not sure I could follow a tute!  Grin

One thing I'm wondering - is it comfy to spin with her?  Do you sit her on a table to spin?  I can't imagine working that close to the floor!
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Whitework - a sneaky sloth! on: June 07, 2012 07:44:52 AM
Im loving whitework embroidery at the moment.  I did some Carrickmacross lace recently, and I decided to have a bash at cutwork.   

I also love sloths.  I really, really love them. So whats the obvious choice for my next foray into whitework?  Sloths!

My design is some hibiscus flowers just about to be eaten by a sneaky sloth!  Sloths love hibiscus flowers.  I gave the flowers a bit of texture the stamens are done in French knots, and I gave the sloth a nice furry coat.

This was so much fun to embroider!  If I did it again Id use a whiter thread this one looks a little cream, and use a sharper pair of scissors to cut the background cloth away.  You need really sharp scissors for this.  If youve got sharp scissors and know how to do buttonhole stitch, youre pretty much sorted on cutwork!

Love it!  I can't get enought BBT embroidery!  Cheesy
10  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Warp and weft tapestry on: May 18, 2012 03:11:10 AM
Hello!  I normally hang out in the Needlework area of Craftster, but I thought I'd pop over here to Fiber Arts to share my latest project.

Last year, I completed the Open College of the Arts' Textiles 1 course, which included a module on weaving.  I have a little lap loom, but hadn't really done much with it, and the weaving module really gave me the bug!  I did some tapestry weaving as part of my course last year, and thought I'd have a bash at another project.

So, here's my Warp and Weft tapestry weaving.  It was really interesting to see how much easier it was to form shapes working sideways - I think 'weft' came out better than 'warp'.

I just doodled around to get a design I liked.  I wanted to do something with words and strong, simple colours.

It's about 20cm square, but it hasn't come out totally square!  Could I pin it to an ironing board and block in the way you block crochet or knitting?
