2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Re: I've got tons of WorkBasket magazines 50's-80's! on: September 07, 2006 10:26:16 AM
Hey guys, I know I'm a little late here (a day late and a dollar short, that's me!) but I found this thread a couple days ago and had to wait for my chance at hubby's computer since my keyboard doesn't work right now  Tongue  Anyway, I was wondering if I can get in on the embroidery transfer swap.  I have a pile of old Workbaskets, about 10 of which have transfers in 'em.  I'm also okay with scanning patterns if anyone wants 'em  Smiley  Between yas, you probably have all the ones that I have anyway, but I can try!  To save time, I'll post what I've got if that's okay.  Then if you don't want them, no problem.

June 1971 - Ivy-covered household stuff.  Key & lock, hand pump, wooden bucket, lantern, washtub

April 1974 - Calendar kids-January eskimo, February ballerina, March leprechaun, April girl with umbrella, May boy with flower baskets, June bride

September 1971 - Christmas-dog, cat and kid faces, noel blocks, pinecones, bells, toy soldier, wreath, girl singing on a music note

March 1973 - cross stitch designs-alphabet, butterflies, flowers, geometric motifs

May 1971 - applique style animals-cat, poodle, duck, chick, bunny

June 1973 - flowers in circles, birds, little turtle, mushrooms, frog on a lilly pad, butterflies, fruit

December 1972 - smiley baby animals-giraffe, duck with balloons, lion, horse, elephant, baby carriage, rattle, diaper pin

October 1973 - Christmas-trees, cute kids in snowsuits, presents, santa, stocking, bells, stars, dove, snowflakes, wagon, sled

July 1972 - happy kitchen stuff-sugar bowl, pitcher, teapot, teacup, flowers, grapes, wineglass, owl cookie jar

December 1973 - Jacobean style embroidery flowers and hearts (very pretty!)

I didn't list all the tiny motifs on each one, just the main things.  Let me know if anyone's interested.

It's actually quite easy, I'm about half done with the first bra cup.  I've only knitted flat, rectangular, solid things before so you don't need much experience to manage it  Smiley

I love chainmail, and it's always nice to know you're not the only person nutty enough to sit around with a couple pairs of pliers and a huge pile of rings trying to make something interesting...  Though I have yet to make something as big as a shirt.  Congratulations, now go play with some 22g and see how that feels  Smiley

I've been waiting for this!  Thankyouthankyouthankyou!  Can't wait til our shopping trip Friday to buy some materials...  Won't hubby be surprised when he asks what I'm making this time  Wink  I only hope my wussy beginning knitter ability is up to the task!
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: my first crochet air freshioner doll on: January 04, 2006 01:00:05 PM
I am *so* glad I'm not the only person with a strange and unnatural fascination with silly air freshener covers...  I wanna make one now  Smiley

Thanks guys!  I need to make one for myself cause they're so darn cute...
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: got fun, original, badass xstitch patterns? share! on: October 31, 2005 11:36:57 AM
That's a lovely idea but I don't own a working printer  Smiley  Also, if I plan on sharing a pattern via computer, I have no way to get the pattern scanned besides taking a picture with my camera, which I don't think will work too well!

I'm currently working on trying to get a bookmark together.  I'm looking at something like a traditional sampler with the parallel lines of different stitching, then instead of the name and date or Home Sweet Home or whatever, I'm thinking maybe "Bite Me" or something along those lines...  *IF* I ever get it done and *IF* I can figure out how to chart it (without having to pay an arm and a leg for software) I'll share it if you'd like  Smiley  I completely agree, there is a serious dearth of cool patterns.  Crochet and knitting are getting a kick in the rear and becoming cool now, so maybe cross stitch isn't far behind!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Final Fantasy Bookmark on: October 31, 2005 08:23:42 AM
I made this for my hubby who is constantly using tissues and toilet paper as bookmarks.  He loves all the Final Fantasy games, and honestly I was really looking for an excuse to do something with these cute little guys!  I was afraid he'd think it was cheesy since it was cross stitch, so I showed it to him and told him it was mine.  Since he yanked it out of my hand and said "nope, it's mine!" I think he probably liked it  Smiley  The picture's not the greatest, but you can at least see what it looks like!  I love those little pixelated mages...
