1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flight of the Conchords tea party cross stitch on: February 11, 2012 12:40:57 AM
 I recently got some cross stitch pattern books from the 80's and when I saw this tea set pattern I instantly thought of my favorite folk duo from New Zealand Smiley

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Have you tried turning it off and on again? on: November 02, 2011 09:53:53 PM
My husband and I are massive IT crowd fans so when my grandma recently gave me her cross stitching materials (she decided that 86 is a good age to retire her skills  Wink) I knew I wanted to make Roy's pixel person. No pattern was necessary since pixels translate so well to cross stitch. This was my first cross stitch piece in about 13 years (I was 8 or 9) so I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. 

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween Tree on: October 09, 2011 11:32:58 AM

Here is my Halloween Tree, inspired by the book by Ray Bradbury. It's been a favorite book of mine for a long time, but i just got around to stitching something up.

I didn't use a pattern just started stitching and kept going til it felt finished  Cheesy
I used cotton floss on felt, i like the texture of the peice this way. Thanks for looking Smiley
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Shaun of the Dead,Clown,and Rag doll childrens costumes on: August 18, 2011 07:12:55 AM
I got a really early start on costumes this year, so both of my daughters' outfits are done. My youngest wanted to be a clown, mostly because she knows her dad is scared of them. I made her a tutu and vest and attached a tulle flower to the vest. I then made her a rainbow yarn hairpiece and she topped it with her favorite hat.


My oldest daughter wanted to be a rag doll " like sally but not sally" (she is very picky). I used scraps of all her favorite fabrics in my stash to make a jumper and then made a yarn wig for her. The hat was made by a friend.

This was the first time they put the costumes on so by halloween I'm sure there will be changes made and the make up will be much better Smiley

ok adding my son now. originally he was going to be yoda but he didn't like his costume, think it was just uncomfortable so instead he is Shaun from Shaun of the Dead (only much cuter Wink)

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / For the love of 30rock on: August 18, 2011 06:41:42 AM
This piece was inspired by 30rock and the song Werewolf Bar Mitzvah. My hubby is huge 30rock fan and with Halloween not too far away, I couldn't resist. I sketched this up and had the stitching completed about two hours later. Hubs was thrilled  Wink
