1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Another Doodle Stitched Gadget Case on: October 14, 2013 09:36:43 PM
this time with two colors! 

once again, done completely without a pattern, which was a little tricky for me using two different threads.

this one was made to fit an iphone 4 for smileyyogini in the Make A Purse and Fill It swap round 7.

i love doodle stitching, its becoming "a thing" for me Smiley  what do you think?

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Doodle Stitched gadget case on: October 02, 2013 04:39:13 PM
made this a while back for the FOC secret swap.

it all started with a lazy daisy on eco-felt...

from there i just worked on it a little bit at a time, a knot here, a chain there...

i even pulled out a nice 70's needlework book for stitch ideas, since i was using pearl cotton i didn't use any type of split stitches

this was such an enjoyable project for me, just doodling with a needle while clearing out the dvr Smiley

would love to know what you think!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Christmas Ornament on: August 09, 2013 08:57:52 AM
just signed up for the mini 12 days of christmas swap, and it got me thinking how fun it would be to have a One Tiny (under 4") Ornament swap!  
i would definitely organize if it was kept to 20 swappers, unless some brave soul would volunteer to co-org with me!
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sleepy Kitty on: August 06, 2013 08:32:15 AM
just wrapped the One Fab Zippered Pouch swap and stitched this sleepy guy for my partner Craftineer.  please excuse the photo overload, i'm so darn proud of this project!  the pattern was a freebie from http://starshapedandshiny.blogspot.com

this was a blast for me, experimenting with different type of stitches for filling.

i used several different books for reference and ideas, my favorite being a book called "Creative Needlework" that was published in 1969 that i picked up at the thrift store for a whopping 29 cents!

my original plan was to make it super colorful, but decided to go with shades of blue, my partners favorite.

and one more of the finished pouch, which measured a little over 5x5 inches

thanks for looking Smiley
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Baby Giraffe! on: August 04, 2013 09:27:19 AM
i made this little guy for the recent Amigurumi Addiction swap.
the pattern is from a fun book i found at my local book store called "Voodoo Maggie's Adorable Amigurumi"  by Erin Clark. this bugger was actually quite challenging for me!

i'm glad it was difficult though, because now i feel like i've learned a lot about shaping and assembly that i didn't know before!

thanks for looking Smiley
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Everybody Wants a Treehouse on: July 09, 2013 03:45:33 PM
...well, at least everyone i've ever met! 

i made this ages ago for my buddy jexxican.  she and i both are a couple of tree huggers, and i love stitching trees so much.   i really had to force myself to send it to her  Wink

the design is from "little stitches" by Aneela Hoey...adorable book, highly recommend it for children's designs!

thanks for looking!
