1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tale as Old as Time... on: July 04, 2011 02:45:38 PM
Grin Grin EDIT: Grin Grin
Was July 2011 Featured Project Seen

Once upon a time there was a girl who signed up for the Can't Get Enough Disney Swap. While racking her brain on what to give her Beauty and the Beast loving partner and lovingly looking at the homemade embroidery hoop clocks, she decided it was time to put the two together!

It took a lot of planning and trial and error to figure out what would be the best way to construct said piece but she finally found her sanity and made it work.

Process pics:

WIP Day 3

And the Finished Piece:

It's about 9x7" and is 1.5" tall, if anyone was wondering.

I can make a tutorial if anyone is interested. Putting the clock together was the hardest part (that, and finding out I got the wrong size clock parts).

All in all, I plan on making myself one that is a little larger so a tutorial wouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for checking this out!
Keep Crafting,

Hey there everyone! I made these little Floo Powder necklaces for the A Very Potter Musical swap. They are made from salt and pepper shakers, glitter, cork and some jewelery bits and bobs.

Labels are hand stamped on gold painted paper.

I also made some in green and light blue (one for myself and another for my best friend).

I made this cross stitch for my Swap Partner for my first swap. Newbie Swap Round 15. My partner, Malkavian6, stated that she really wanted anything GIR/Invader Zim related and that's what she got!

The framed copy with tag that reads:
"Part 7 - Finally, since GIR wants you to know how much he loves you...
A portrait of GIR!

Anyway... I'm going to roll around on the floor for a while, kay?
Good luck on your mission!
Love GIR"

Pattern modified from: Here.

Cross stitch 16 canvas, Rose Brand Floss.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Parrots Needlepoint FINISHED Help wanted on: February 02, 2011 07:49:07 AM
This is my first Topic Post on Craftster and I'm new here so please be nice.  Smiley

I've been in a needlepoint mood after I crocheted myself silly making Christmas gifts so I dug up an old project I haven't seen in years.

When I was about twelve I picked up a really tacky needlepoint kit at a garage sale for 50 cents. It didn't even have the original box. It was in a clear bag with the yarn, needle, and canvas and that was it. I ended up working on it for about a day or two and then was forgotten and misplaced during the move. We'll, I finally found it about twelve years later.

Below are my progress pictures. I finally finished it late Monday night as I was determined to finish it before I went to bed!

Progress: Day Three

Now, I have no idea what to do with it since I think it is utterly tacky. Any ideas would be great! I was thinking a pillow or a bag but I wouldn't use either...
