71  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Card collection [pic heavy] on: April 26, 2010 06:23:37 AM
I've been on a bit of a card making mission for different things in the past few months, and having recently sorted through all the pictures on the laptop thought I'd post them Smiley

This one was a housewarming present for a spider-man loving friend of mine.  Stitched on 14 count white aida then stuck onto the card.  I found a chart of spiderman's face on the internet, and then made up spider and cobweb sections on some chart paper to make it look more fun Smiley

This was made for my partners Mum's birthday who loves all things oriental.  Stitched on 14 count green aida, in a string strand of yellow thread.  The middle of the circle designs on the side is done in metallic gold.  I had intended to do them all in the metallic thread, but I found it so frustrating to stitch with!!

This was for my best friends birthday, again stitched on 14count white aida.  She loves butterflies and I liked all the colours in this one Smiley  Pattern was from a free downlad pdf chart thingy.

This was the Mother's day card I made for my partner's Mum.  She's a dress maker so thought this one was very appropiate.  I can't remember where I got the pattern for this one from, but it's also done on 14 count white aida.  As you can tell, I like stitching on that count aida, find it so easy to work with.

I've been wanting to stitch a Harry Potter crest for aaaages, and so made this one up for my HP loving cousin's birthday.  I'm pretty sure the pattern was from the Leaky Cauldron website.

And finally, I made this for my partner's birthday.  We both love panda's so it had to be done.  Again on 14 count aida, and I made the design for the letters up as I went along in a single strand of thread.  Pattern was from an old copy of one of the stitching magazines I had.

A friend of mine has got an unbelievably cute and uber fluffy kitten called Monkey.  For his birthday I wanted to make him something so decided to make him a cross stitch of the kitty!  I found a lovely cat pattern on the internet, re drew it and changed the colouring so it looked more like Monkey.  It's stitched on 14 count white aida, I then mounted on card and framed it after punching some little kitty paw prints into the border Smiley 

And here is Monkey -  
(She is such a poser!!)

**Framed Picture Update on 2nd page Smiley**

Wooooo!! So yesterday I finally finished the latest project I've been working on.  Been working on it on and off for the the last couple of months and so happy with how it turned.  It's stitched on 14 count black aida, and stitched completely with gold/yellow anchor thread, I forget which number.  The pattern was one I found on the internet.  It could have been a bit neater in places but I absolutely hate unpicking stuff!!  Anyway, here it is:

And some close ups:

I'm hoping to frame it as soon as I find a frame that it will fit in Smiley
74  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nightwish, Motley Crue and more :) on: April 08, 2010 07:46:18 AM
I recently discovered the minipop cross stitch collection on the internets.  Being a massive glammie fan I had to stitch the Motley Crue one Cheesy I was so excited making it!! 

After making the Motley Crue one I was inspired to make a version for my favourite band in the world, Nightwish.  I drew the pattern out following the one I used for Motley Crue, I used the same body shapes and heights etc. then changed the clothes and hair so it looked more like the band. 

For those that don't know the band, I used this picture to work from:

Following on the Nightwish theme, I found this cute little dreamcatcher design in a magazine, and decided to stitch it with some of my favourite Nightwish lyrics:

75  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / King Tut Cushion on: April 07, 2010 11:22:38 AM
I love history of all kinds, especially Egyptian history.  I found this design in a cross stitchy magazine a few years ago and loved it.  It's stitched on 16 count cream aida.  I had no idea what to do with it after I finished it but knew I wanted it to be on show, so thought I'd put it on a cushion.  I mounted the design on some brown felt I had lying around and stitched that onto the cushion.  We had a homeware sale at work so I caved in and bought one instead of making one  Smiley  Anyway here it is:

76  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bookmarks & Coasters on: April 06, 2010 08:48:49 AM
I lost my bookmark the other day so decided to stitch a new one as a break from the big project I'm currently working on.  I found this pattern in a magazine aaages and just never got around to making it before.  Tis on 16 count cream aida, using numerous different colourful threads, and then backed onto some cardboard so it was a bit sturdier.  Hopefully I won't lose this one Smiley

I've also been on a bit of a coaster making mission recently as all the ones I had appeared to have vanished when we moved, so was an excuse to stitch some more stuff!!  I've been completely Alice in Wonderland obsessed recently so decided to make some on that theme for our lounge.  Here they are:

I have have one more of the set to make (another black one) but I ran out of aida after making the first somehow so just waiting for more to arrive.  All done on 14 count aida, and I also used some red metallic thread which was incredibly frustrating to stitch with!!  My housemate then decided to get in on the coaster making mission and asked me to make some cat ones for her room.  I'd found these patterns on the internet a while ago and wanted to  make them so finally had a reason! -

Here ends the productiveness Smiley
77  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sunset Tree on: March 25, 2010 10:08:25 AM
I made this pattern quite recently as a house warming present for some friends.  I wanted to do some sort of nature themed sewing, and found this on a image search on the internets.  Didn't really have a proper pattern to work off, so was lots of guess work but it turned out better than I expected it to.  I mixed different thread colours together at different points to try and blend the colours together more.  I completed it in two evenings, so didn't take that long at all.  Still looks a bit blocky to me, and not blended that well in some places but they loved it so all was good!

78  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Mixture of Cross Stitchyness [pic heavy] on: March 24, 2010 01:10:39 PM
Right, well I've only just signed up on here, so thought I'd post some of the bigger projects I've completed recently Smiley 

My cousins a massive fan of Michael Jackson so when I found this silhouette design of him on the internets I just had to make it for her!! Took me about 2 days to complete.

Some friends of mine have recently moved onto a canal boat, which is awesome! I remembered seeing this design in an old issue of one of the cross stitching magazines I had so dug it out and made it for her for her birthday.  It now takes pride of place in their living room Smiley  It took me several months to complete on and off, with lots of frustration when sewing the red flowers due to my lack of ability to see any difference in the shades!

I also made this as a present for my best friend who's really into jousting and historical re enactment.  I found the pattern on the internets and it took about a month to complete, as I was making loads of cards at the same time.  I changed the design I found slightly, to incorporate a Tudor theme, by having the flags of Lancaster and York.
