151  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Charlotte's Hoops on: April 28, 2015 12:32:47 AM
I have been idea crazy about all these hoops I want to make for my baby girl's nursery wall, and here are two more to add to the pile, haha. These ones I actually finished the backing of today, so they will be going on her wall tomorrow! Smiley



Here is a closeup of the bunting embroidery. I wish I have done a chain stitch for the "string" holding the flags.



For the wreath embroidery, I actually painted the design in watercolors, scanned it into my computer, printed it out, transferred the image to the hoop, and then stitched it. A long process, but I really like how it turned out. I tried to do some different kinds of stitches on this one. The only thing I don't like is the chain stitch under her name... meh...

All of these ATCs are so beautiful they are making my lust bucket ache!

Speaking of, I got an AWESOME one in the mail today! WOO! -happy mail happy dance-

This is the first one I've gotten for my Purple/Green ABC theme. The letter P!



It is so cool in person! The letter looks like trees/vines, and is all glittery and I am in LOVE with the green bubble wrap painting on the side. (Jeremy normally only says "Oh, that's cool. I like it," to anything I show him. This time he commented that he really liked how many different shades of purple and green she incorporated! That's high praise coming from him!)

AugustBell She is super creepy cool!

Pottermouth Haha a feather quill at that! If you're going to make a Harry Potter themed ATC, you might as well make it authentically, right? Haha I had a lot of fun making that one. I don't often play with those metallic watercolors.

Sorry for all the catching up I'm about to do. Bear with me to the end to see the AMAZINGNESS that spazzybrat sent me!!

AugustBell Beautiful Autism Awareness card! I've been watching Parenthood, and I really like how they have highlighted some of the difficulties/realities of loving someone with autism (Max), while also giving a vision of hope for the future (Hank). Ooh the scratchcard is such a cool idea! I never would have thought to do that! I love the mandala! When I'm feeling stressed sometimes I will draw or color them myself. Yours looks very relaxing!

patraw Love the lolita! I especially love her little buns! So cute! And that cutout cat is awesome too! (Hmm... I may have to add papercutting onto my to-do list... it's been a while since I've done one...) WOW! That mermaid is amazing! And that does not look like an easy pose to draw, either!

blupaisan That train trestle is so cool looking! And the sunset is just gorgeous! Aww the little mushroom man is so cute (and now I'm having swap anxiety because I made a mushroom for AugustBell!)!! And now I'm also jealous of the garden ATC... If I could ever manage to not kill every plant that enters my home (I can't even keep a cactus alive... it's bad, guys), I would totally want that sign in my (nonexistent) garden!

curiousfae Super cool mixed media piece. I love that style (though I can't seem to figure out how to do it myself, haha). And... I think I need that treasure map. -goes off to add Treasure Maps to her list of themes-

jenleahlynn Awesome steampunk lady. She looks like she could fit right into a Sherlock Holmes adventure! (The one with Robert Downey Jr, anyway). Loving the Shel Silverstein card. I loved his poetry as a kid, though I don't think I'm brave enough to try shrinkydink (after a ceramics class and exploding pottery, everything that shrinks just kind of worries me). And that non-paper Little Prince one is super cool! Love the quote, too! I am seriously jealous of that bubble bath card with the rubber duck! Oh my goodness!

pottermouth What a cool moving skeleton dude! Even with the instructions you gave, I'm still having trouble picturing exactly how to all works (I am NOT an engineer by any means, haha!), but he is still awesome without my brain being able to visualize the technical part.

rockingbearranch I love the hope themed cards! I actually have a greeting card in my stash that has similar imagery/style to those. Smiley I've never heard of The IT Crowd, but the portrait looks really good, and I love the moveable speech bubble! That goddess themed one is beautiful. The colors are so bold and powerful!

kosmicgirl OMG THAT YETI!! I just want to keep him in my pocket all the time. That way whenever I am feeling sad, I just pull out this little friendly yeti who gives me a daisy and then I's not to sad no mores.

spazzybrat BAHAHA I LOVE BAYMAX! So cute! My fiance is IN.LOVE. with Big Hero 6 (hence it is one of my themes), and Baymax is our favorite, hands down (though that's probably true for everyone). Heehee the My Little Pony card is so cute.

Mountains and Clouds I want to eat those tomatoes! They look like they could just jump off the page and into my belly! Those self portraits are just lovely! I can't get up the nerve to try to do a self portrait of myself. I just ... yea, no guts here.

Ok, as promised! AWESOMENESS FROM SPAZZYBRAT for my Pinterest Inspired Theme. The bass clef/treble clef heart was actually a tattoo idea from my tattoo board, and one I have debated getting on and off since high school. I really want it, but good lord my first pair of tattoos hurt so bad! (Why am I such a wuss?) Maybe this ATC will satisfy my craving without giving me any more pain...



And I also took a picture of the card she sent because (ironically enough) my biggest client at work is an electric bike company, so it made me extra happy! Smiley

Welcome Algeera!!

I have no internet for my computer or tablet tonight (just finishing moving so Internet will happen again tomorrow), so I can't find the links for them, but have you seen test tube chandeliers? They are SUPER COOL!! If you made one I would be super jealous. Just saying.

I love the fabric and slight 3D off the butterfly and flower card. I love embellishments on cards - makes them just a little bit more special, you know?

That warrior is fierce! I love all of the little details - her ears, the wings, the feathers. Even bald she is still so feminine and yet would be really scary to face off against!

Ooh... I totally forgot about Being Human... I'm going to have to add the show back onto my To Watch list... And that is an awesome Mitchell!

Those shoebills are so intense! The first one looks super angry. They are so amazing (I can't draw animals to save my life, but I keep trying!).
