11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / First Ever Embroidery Project on: January 29, 2011 06:01:23 AM
This was done on my brand new Brother SE400. I'm completely new to machine embroidery and felt a real sense of accomplishment! So much to learn...especially about these stabilizers. I'm getting my shipment of tear away, wash away, and temporary spray on Tuesday. Then, I will be lurking here continuously looking for tips and ideas.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Warm Knit Socks on: January 09, 2011 08:43:49 PM
There is a storm predicted for the next few days with ice, snow and wind. That spells cold floors in my house, so I thought I'd make myself a pair of super warm socks. I knitted these on a 5.5" round loom using two strands of worsted weight yarn held together. I had to learn the process used to make a brim on a hat and how to shape a heel, so it took me about 3 hours to make them.

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Valentine Goodie Bag on: January 06, 2011 07:02:38 AM
Sometimes I just pick up some yarn and a crochet hook and see what happens. This was crocheted in two pieces...front and back. I'm glad I've finally learned to write down what I'm doing so I can have that all important 'repeatability' factor.  Cheesy

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cute Knit Hats on: December 19, 2010 04:13:39 PM
I love knitting whether it is with needles or on a loom. These two hats were knit on a 9.5" circular loom with two strands of yarn held together. Hearts are crochet.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Speed Stix Scarf on: December 01, 2010 08:47:14 AM
I wanted to take my new Speed Stix (#50 knitting needles) out for a trial run. I spent about an hour last night then finished this scarf this morning. I think I'm in love! Using two white and one each brown and tan all held together, I cast on 9 stitches and did a basket weave pattern....k,p,k times 3, p,k,p times three. The pattern doesn't show well in the multi-colors, but I think it added some interest. I knew I had to end on a knit, purl, knit sequence so I went just a little past my intended 48".

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 1st Completed Hairpin Lace Project on: November 19, 2010 10:12:24 AM
After much trial, error and practice, this is my first completed hairpin lace project. These pictures show the 1) completed scarf 2) scarf in progress 3) me, modeling my scarf. I really enjoy doing hairpin lace, but it sure was a challenge learning the juggling act that goes along with using the little loom. When putting the strips together, I was so careful not to twist them. Come to find out later, the twists will add interest, design and much prettiness! I'm going to do a couple more practice projects before buying more expensive yarns to work with.

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Two (Too) Cute Aprons on: November 11, 2010 09:27:08 AM
These two patternless (made my own) aprons are just one main piece and edged in double fold bias tape. The edging is zig zag stitched.

The exact measurements are: Overall pattern is 32" Width (widest) is 16" The body length is 22 1/2" (marker #1) and the neckline width is 5 1/2" (marker #2) A curve is made from marker #1 to #2. I know there's real equipment out there to do this, but I used a plate! 2 packages of double fold bias tape is more then enough.

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple Mesh Shawl on: November 08, 2010 07:36:48 AM
I needed and wanted something to wear out to restaurants here in Charlotte. Seems they all think that 55 degrees inside is a good thing and the constant cold air on my neck and back was ruining every restaurant meal. I bought a nice shawl thingy once but it looked more like a bed jacket! I used Red Heart soft blue yarn to make this shawl. Wearing it for the first time on Saturday, it was perfect...not too much but enough to break the wind coming out of those overhead vents! Soooo....I present my simple mesh shawl, finished last Friday, worn on Saturday.

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Collar Bows on: October 25, 2010 07:22:49 PM
After bandanas were banned at Astrid's doggie day camp, I made her some pretty collars to wear. Now, we are starting to add some bows to her collars so she can stay the best dressed girl at day camp. We won't let that ol' bandana ban get us down! The blue flower was crocheted by me, too.

20  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Presenting Ms Penelope on: October 25, 2010 04:40:02 PM
Our entry in the Crafster 'Great Pumpkin Craft Off' is Ms Penelope. She is a genuine pumpkin gourd but her eyes, nose and ears are not. Accessories by "tout un euro" (the dollar store!) She was created on Sunday, October 25, 2010.
