These are adorable! I'm kind of in love with print shorts, though I haven't been brave enough to sew or wear any yet. After seeing how cute yours turned out, I might be, though! I have some cotton owl-print fabric that I have no clue what to do with and this might be perfect!

Lilibet- Nope, it's all being done on white fabric. I have a feeling my eyes would pop out of my skull trying to do it on black...though the colors would pop very nicely. I'm probably just going to mat it with black and put it in a red frame to hang.

StitchFIGHT- I know! There are 81 colors total, but I have a massive stash thanks to my mom and grandma, so I will only need to buy like, three or four colors, thank goodness. I'll love to see it finished, too. I just can't wait to start stitching characters or letters or something with an actual shape!

Hello, all! I'm loving seeing everybody's progress.

So, I went on a big hiatus, but am back now. Unfortunately, I am also camera-deprived...so I won't be able to post pictures as regularly as I would like. But I will definitely update when I am able. Smiley

I'm working on a massive Super Mario Galaxy project for my boyfriend and would love to get it finished this year...though I am seriously doubting that will happen.

Here's what I'm making!

The pattern is 20 pages and I just finished the first page (lower-right corner; it was the smallest, so I felt accomplished quickly!) tonight and started working on the second page.

I will update with WIP pics soon, I hope!

It's stuff like this that makes me want to learn to weave.  It's so gorgeous and so professional-looking!  What kind of a loom do you use?  I've recently started researching, but I have no idea what I'm really looking for in the way of looms.  I'd probably only use it for stuff like this--scarves and shawls and stuff.  Any tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Smiley

So cute! The orange and black one is my favorite! I so want to make some of these now...I have an 8 year old niece who would love that pink one. Smiley

She's beautiful! I need to make one for myself. Or, you know, direct my mom to this thread and subtly tell her that I *really* need a Hedwig to add to my owl collection. Smiley

Oh, the joys of being the only daughter of a seamstress.
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Learn to spin in 2010 on: December 07, 2010 12:38:18 AM
I SO want to learn to spin now! I plan on buying all the supplies and starting my experiments in yarn-spinning over the summer. Sadly, Christmas break will be too full of pre-planned Christmas crafting to be able to learn anything new and once I get back in school...well, let's just say my craft time will be limited. Sad

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome thread and hopefully there will be more lessons coming up. I also found some really good tutorials on YouTube (The Art of Megan is the channel name, I believe) that make it look so easy! I can't wait to get started and looking at all the beautiful yarns you guys have spun just makes me more and more excited!

They're so cute! My mom would love these...she adores snowmen! How did you finish the backs? I've always wanted to do tea towels, but the back of my work always looks terrible. :S
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Re: Big Project stitch-along 2010 on: December 06, 2010 10:47:37 PM
Ack! I have been so awful with this. Everybody's been doing amazing work and I've done...nothing! Blah. Stupid school.

However...I have about 8 days left in the semester. And then the Christmas crafting begins!

I'm sorry I've been so slacky...taking 2 300-level Novels courses at the same time was kind of a bad idea.


I don't have any *big* needlepoint projects to do for Christmas, per se, but I am making a series of four button trees for my mom, so I will post progress pics of those when I'm done. Smiley

Kudos to everyone else on their hard work, though...everything looks amazing!

Hey all, sorry I've been absent for a while. It's been a rough time. Hopefully I'm back for good, now, though! Smiley

Everything is looking great...Historical, I'm in awe, as always. What's next on the list o' projects?

I particularly am in love with the Kick Ass piece...I adored that movie and I think it's going to look great when it's done. Can't wait to see more progress! Smiley

I've just started a rather large piece...a Super Mario Galaxy piece that's 240x359 stitches and 81 colors. I haven't done enough on it yet to warrant a photo, but I will hopefully have time to work on it this weekend. Cheesy
