2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Keyhole Pinup on: December 30, 2007 08:54:10 AM
Hi All,

It's been a while since I've posted - been busy, as we all are...  Anyways, I'm on a short vacation from work for the holidays, and the first thing I did was stitch.  Here's what I came up with:  (she's wrinkly b/c I haven't ironed yet).

She's hand-stitched, and I drew her myself, but took inspiration from a book of pinups that my husband has at our shop.  It's sort of from those pulp mags from the 40's and 50's.The keyhole is stenciled and brushed on with some acrylic paint.  Here's a closeup of her face:

Like I said, it's slightly unfinished, but I wanted to post anyways.  I ended up giving it to a friend of ours for Christmas, and he's pretty happy with it.  It took me about 6 hours to complete, from drawing to painting.

What do you think?

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Spider Tattoo Embroidery on: February 27, 2007 09:41:46 AM
I haven't posted in a while so... Wink

My finace (4 more weeks - we'll be at Viva getting married) is a tattoo artist, and when he gets bored at work, he draws and frames me little pictures of traditional original flash.  This is one of my favorites, and I decided to stitch it up for his studio if he promises to put it on my skin soon.

Bear with me, I am a terrible photographer...

It is un-ironed at this point...

Here it is framed at my office -

Hope you all like it!

Hope to hear from you all.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Newly Upholstered Hot Rod Seats! on: September 09, 2006 01:48:35 PM
Hi Guys,

I didn't know where to put this, but wanted to show everyone...

My boyfriend builds hot rods, and I've begun helping with the latest by doing the upholstery and interior.  Here's the new front seat so far...

First, image of the old and busted seat before:

...Not sure if you can see how stained and torn it is:

Now here's the new terribly pimped-out seat.  Usually, we go for understated black, but we want this car to be a rockabilly creeper led sled:

and another:

Finally, here's the lucky recipient in his garage, mid chop and all dusty from body work:

It's going to be SICK!

thanks for looking!

Hi Everyone,

I've been off for a while (almost a year).  I lost my job and computer access, because of all that accidentally flaked on a swap..... but you don't need to hear my sob story.  I'm glad to be back, and up and crafting!

Here's one of the things I've worked on - It's about a foot and a half tall, and about 3/4 foot wide:

and an up-close shot (kind of fuzzy):

Well, thanks for looking.  It's good to be back and getting back on track!

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Does anyone pinstripe? I want to learn... on: September 14, 2005 07:24:08 AM
Does anyone pinstripe (think hot rods)?  I am intested in learning, because I think it could really look bitchin' on housewares and other stuff...

Any advice?  Techniques?  Books I should get?


8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Poor little broke-down deer - Help me clean it up! on: July 20, 2005 10:40:51 AM
Hi Everyone,

My friends know that I am an embroidery addict!  They found this piece at a garage sale that they gave me, and I love it!  Check out the deer...

It's really dirty - any ideas on how to clean it?  Dryclean?  Hand wash?

Here's a closeup.

Thanks for the help!

9  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / sublime-ly nice banner on: June 10, 2005 08:21:26 AM
Here's an embroidery I did that has a little of Sublime, a little of my own design...

(I did the bird banners wrong, but I'm giving it away and the recipient loves it, so whatever!).

here's a close up of my stitches

What do y'all thinK?

Hi Everyone.

Here's my first proper post!

These are some embroidery designs I drew and stitched up... I'm big on opposites, so I decided to do the good old boys vs. girls theme.

They are supposed to be framed wall hangings, but I haven't gotten that far yet.   Wink

the first

the second

Hope you all like them!  thanks for lookin'
