These are both so cool! I love the unfinished part at the bottom, the background colors are beautiful, and both of their expressions are great. I think I like the one you posted here the best, although they're both fabulous! Great work!!
22  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Post your unusual flower pictures here! on: November 26, 2007 04:54:52 AM
Post your non-ordinary flower pictures here! These are two I've been liking a lot lately:

I can't get enough of flower pictures! I work at an agricultural high school, and we just got done having a chrysanthemum festival last month (where I took the first picture! It's a chrysanthemum. I'm not sure about the second flower. It was growing wild.). There were soooo many pretty flowers everywhere, so I have about a gazillion flower pictures, plus a bunch of bee ones. It's easy to take a beautiful flower picture, I think, but the challenge is to not make it look like everyone else's!
Comments are welcome, and please post your photos!!

Some of my other favorite pictures on flickr!

I think it's fabulous! I like this one better than the other one... I guess the fish looks a bit less cartoonish, and I like the background better. I like your style a lot, with the sketchy squiggly lines around the fish. You've got a lot of talent! Are you putting prints in your etsy shop?! I hope so!
24  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Japanese Yukata/Furoshiki Quilt on: November 24, 2007 12:48:29 AM
I love the quilting on the back. It's such a beautiful picture- I think I like it even more in the stitched version on the back than in the printed version on the front! & your stitches are all so even! I was wondering if you had machine quilted it somehow, because it looks so uniform, but I couldn't figure out how you did it! Haha! Great job! I have a kimono I got in Japan that I want to cut up and make a wall quilt from, but it feels sad to cut it up, although I'll never use it for anything else, and that's why I bought it (& because it was only 315 yen!! About $3! I couldn't believe it!). Thanks for the inspiration!

Those are BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the designs. The leaves are especially nice, but both designs are amazing. You did a FANTASTIC job!!

Those are GORGEOUS! Great job! Very cool subject matter!
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Blue/Red Going-to-College Quilt on: October 04, 2007 02:43:14 AM
That's pretty! I love the colors together. I think the fabric is great- and do I get extra cool points because I had no idea it was Amy Butler?! Haha! I usually use sheets for backing, too. I've never had any problems, but then I've always machine quilted, not hand quilted ("always".... it sounds like I've made millions of quilts instead of like 4!).
& it looks like you're going to my old uni! Cool drawing of the Sun God! It's immediately recognizable!

I love the circles one! Beautiful colors, and really interesting quilting pattern!!
29  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Blue oceany quilt on: August 28, 2007 08:38:01 PM
I made a lap quilt as a wedding present for my friend.

Closeup of the fabrics.
Obviously Denyse Schmidt inspired! I didn't plan it all, just started sewing, so all the squares came out different sizes, and I had to add in some random pieces. But I like that! Then everybody knows it's homemade, right?!
It's supposed to be sort of ocean themed, because he proposed on a boat and they got married on the beach. The front doesn't look to oceany, but the back does:

Closeup of the quilting on the back- they're waves, see!
A detail I embroidered on. There are only two of them, but I didn't want it to be JUST "Suzanne loves Corey," because he loves her, too! So it's "Suzanne loves Corey loves Suzanne"- get it?
It was also my first time doing a real live binding (My grandma taught me to leave the backing longer than the front so you can just fold it over and it's only half the work!), and I finally got a chance to use that clover bias tape maker thing! Yay! I did a blanket stitch on the back to attach the binding, so it's very visible not like a traditional binding stitch, and I embroidered their names instead of the blanket stitch on a small section. I was going to write the date, too, but I couldn't remember it, and didn't want to ask since I just finished it a couple weeks ago & they got married in November. I wanted to pretend like I got it finished on time, and I was just waiting until I saw her in person again to give it to her! I did START it on time, anyhow, way back in September! I did most of it then, and then lost the bobbin holder for my sewing machine. Seriously, the thing just disintegrated into thin air! & I hated the machine so much, I just bought a new one instead of replacing the bobbin holder.
She seemed to be very happy with it. Phew!

This is my second one (I posted the first one ages ago in this thread!), and I didn't follow the pattern this time, just kind of did it from memory. About halfway through I realized I wouldn't have enough yarn, so I decided to make it look all mismatched. He's SUPPOSED to look like that, I promise!

And a view from above, so you can see all his little mismatched feet duh, tentacles!:
