41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Monty Python Swap Gallery - Sendouts April 7th on: April 13, 2010 05:04:12 AM
Lovely crafts, Retro_Rose!

I received! I received!
Here is my wonderful stash of goodies from aethelberga! (*so excited*)

First off, she made a beautiful fabric wall hanging! It says, in the background, 'Listen strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government'. This is from my favourite sketch of all time!!

(Boo was interested as well).

Next was a lovely fabric covered and embroidered box with - the airspeed velocity of an unladed swallow! Love eet!

Inside the box was a fantastic tote from the University of Wooloomooloo!

And on the back? A sign up sheet for the Philosophy Department's Drinking Team with all of the usual suspects already signed up!

And finally: a fantabulous Dead Parrot necklace, which I immediately put on.

When I showed my necklace to people yesterday, I kept saying, 'The Norwegian Blue prefers keeping on his back!'

Thanks so much, aethelberga!! I love it all!!

OK, now that I'm intrigued by all these teasers, I'm jumping on the bandwagon.
Here's a teaser for aethelberga (with distortion, because Onyxnox's looks wonderfully psychedelic):

I know what you guys mean about 'swap anxiety' - I really hope you like it, aethelberga!
Oh, and Happy Easter everybody!
46  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sally Halloween Costume and Wolverine too (with claws!) on: April 01, 2010 06:23:05 PM
My bf and I had a really crafty Halloween 2 Halloweens ago. I was Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and he was Wolverine! We had a lot of fun making these!

Here is a rundown of my costume:
The dress: I used a simple shift pattern and cut out pieces of fabric and pinned them together on the pattern like a puzzle (this took a while). My Mom sewed all the pieces together since I possess neither the machine nor the skills (thanks Mom!) I added some black stitching with embroidery floss to give it the 'Sally' look.

The arms and legs: I bought some white opaque nylons and added some stitches with embroidery floss. For the arms, I just got a pair of kids' nylons and cut them so that it fit over my shoulders like a shrug. I added stitches to those too.

Now, on to Wolverine! Admittedly, no sewing was involved in this one but - and I remind my boyfriend of this - it was super crafty of him!

We found the Wolverine leather jacket from a thrift store (we just lucked out at how perfect it fit)! The facial hair was all him. The claws he cut out from some sheet aluminum and covered it with silver tape. They wrap around his hands so that the wrist attachments are hidden under his sleeves and from the front it looks like the blades are popping out from between his fingers!

Here's how the claws worked:

Thanks for looking!!

Thanks again for the great comments everyone!

i made the 14 row sphere tonight, but how do you do your decreases? they appear much less lumpy than mine

I like to do my spheres 'V' side/right side out, and I use the invisi-single crochet decrease stitch, which only works when your piece is 'V' side/right side out. (You do a regular ScDec stitch, but you only use the front loops.) If you want to take a look, I explain it on my blog: http://mspremiseconclusion.wordpress.com/2010/03/23/invisi-single-crochet-decrease/

I am so fascinated that you made these patterns! Congrats, this is so heart warming! Now if I only had the patience to follow through such a long pattern... I wish I could make a whole solar system out of these... although of course I know planets aren't perfect spheres, yeah, you can all shut up Grin but it still would be cool Grin

A Solar System would be SO COOL! (Don't think I havent thought about doing it too!)  Cheesy

Those pillows are really beautiful! The colour palette you chose is so nice with your (awesome!) couch!

I actually made decent progress this weekend, what with the dyeing, the polymer clay & the embroidery. I had projects going on in practically every room. I hope to finish it up next weekend seeing as it is a long weekend.

I am totally intrigued as to what you are making!!!!!

Um, ME TOO! How cool!

My projects are just winding up. I've had quite a bit of fun with them. My large ended up being more time-consuming than I had anticipated because I just couldn't stop adding to it! I hope you like it, aethelberga!

Also :

so the fabric stuff you use when you make potholders, does that keep you protected from heat only, or does it keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold? I'm just curious.... That's all.

Yay for heat transfer! Insulation is great for keeping hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold. It reduces conductive heat transfer. (That's when heat transfers from hot things to cold things through contact. Putting insulation slows down the process.)
