3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Altered Tea Tin Swap? on: November 13, 2016 04:39:09 PM
Any one up for altered tea tin swap?  I know there have been a few altoid tin swaps but I haven't seen any swaps for larger tins.  I guess it could be open to other larger tins as well.  It could also be just the tin or a filled tin, depending on what anyone would like.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jewelry Swap? on: May 20, 2013 09:15:52 PM

Would anyone be interested in a jewelry swap? 

It could be any kind of jewelry making technique.

I would be willing to organize and was thinking 3 jewelry pieces, they could be individual or as a set, and was thinking about signups in early to mid June.  Though I would be open to other details and dates as well.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Meditation Mini Quilt! on: February 26, 2013 06:57:03 PM
I made this for the Mini Art Quilt Swap.  I am very very new to quilting so it has a lot of imperfections, but I think it turned out pretty well.

It is all hand stitched, and I used a few stitches I had never done before.  It also has a lot of raw edges and layering.

I'm happy with how it turned out especially with my limited experience.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my sexual prefrence is often hoopla on: February 26, 2013 06:48:07 PM
This is the first hoopla I have made, and only my second time embroidering overall (the first was just detailed accent work)

This hoopla was made for the most recent round of the adult swap.  It features a vintage pinup graphic style image and a quote found on my partners pintrest.

Let me know what you think!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Prayer Flags on: February 10, 2013 08:45:48 PM
So I have been delaying posting these because I couldn't figure out where they would go since they covered an odd mix of crafts and techniques, so I think here is the best place.  Both were made for round 2 of the prayer flag swap.

First the flag I made for susanab based on creativity. 

I decided to knit the body of the flag since it was a material I hadn't seen for a prayer flag so it seemed to fit the creativity mold.  I also incorporated some painted stenciling for the letters spelling out creativity and then embroidered around them. and the quote is printed on fabric using an inkjet printer.

Up next is the flag I made for Eclectic Dreamer.

This one is based on passion and romance so I tried to use as many vintage delicate looking fabrics in colors that seemed romantic to me and sewed them into a mini quilt look, with a lace layover for the border.  Then I took a picture of a couple holding hands and altered it in photo shop to make it look more like a vintage illustration in coordinating colors (also printed on fabric with an ink jet printer) and finished it with with some hearts cut out of lace.

Let me know what you think.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / wire and beaded jewelry on: January 06, 2013 07:09:27 PM
These are 3 pairs of of dangely beaded earrings made with silver wire and ear hooks.

This was my first attempt at non-post earrings so any comments and/or suggestions are welcome.
9  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / dying wool yarn in a crockpot? on: January 05, 2013 05:07:29 PM
I have recently started dying my own wool yarn in a crock-pot using this tutorial: http://terynjay.blogspot.com/2009/02/tutorial-dyeing-yarn-by-hot-pour-method.html

The first skein I dyed for a swap and it turned out looking great, so I decided to dye some more for myself, but the second turned out looking almost a solid deep purple.  So the next time I bought the cheapest wool yarn I could find in white and bought some different colors of food coloring.  The first of that experiment turned out looking yucking and brown, but the second looked great.

So now I have dyed four skeins using the same method and two looking not so good and two looking great, and I haven't done anything differently any of the times.  So is there any common mistakes I could be making?  Is there any way to ensure yarn looks good with crock-pot dying or is it always a crap shoot?  Is there another more reliable way of dying wool with food coloring or something else readily available at supermarket or walmart?
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rosaries on: September 06, 2012 06:13:26 PM
So I'm not sure if this is the right place or not, but it seemed like the closest place.  Recently I have been getting a lot of requests from friends for rosaries that have a similar look to my jewelry.  So after lots of online reading to figure out the whole bead count thing and many many stores trying to find rosary centers, these are the first two rosaries I have attempted.
