1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: abstract randomness on: May 16, 2012 07:10:59 AM
I love looking at these.  The swirly flow just makes my eye travel so casually and it's really enjoyable to look at them.  (that sounds weird, I know)

Sounds like a fun way to create too (making a bit of a mess!).

So pretty.

I'm always amazed by folks who paint using acrylics (it dries so FAST, how can you work with it!).
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jackie and Xerxes (and Bye Week) on: May 16, 2012 07:07:15 AM
Two of my paintings, both oil on canvas (and each is about 12x18 in size--not very large but not small either)

"Jackie and Xerxes"   Cloth doll and sock zebra, both made by me and painted using a photo as reference.

"Bye Week"    Pittsburgh Steelers monkey I made as a gift for a friend and painted using a photo as reference.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / George the urban chameleon on: May 16, 2012 06:56:29 AM

George the urban chameleon at his work cubicle.

George having a lunch break at his desk.

George is a bit of a prototype from a pattern I whipped up yesterday.  For a prototype, he's looking very good (though could look even better with higher quality felt and a little tweaking).
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mr. Roboto (felt robot) on: March 23, 2012 11:38:19 AM

Look at that cheeky grin.  Mr. Roboto is far from shy.

Strutting his stuff.  All the other robots are going to be throwing their cogs at him (well, if there were any other robots--soon, Mr. Roboto, soon you'll have a companion).

Show off!  (yeah, he's standing on his own and there's no armature involved.  Mr. Roboto should look out, his companion may just be wire reinforced).

I'm very pleased with how well this spur of the moment fella turned out.  I do have a rough pattern for a cylindrical companion for him.  But first I need to complete some more important projects (easter is closing in and my basket's not done yet!)

Thanks for looking.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: March 23, 2012 11:30:31 AM
This is one of my dumbest injuries (my pride was injured more than my body).

I was sewing away at my table when my needle slipped from my hand.  I bent to retrieve it from the floor and on the way down, whacked my head on a nearby dining chair.  Of course, my spouse saw and enjoyed every minute (especially the loud hollow clunking sound of my skull contacting wood).  To make it worse, I was laughing so hard I hit my head again on the edge of the table (as I was coming back up from retrieving the needle).

My spouse said I should craft wearing a helmet.

Too cute.  Love how the flame is fluffy (makes it look so authentic)
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Holey socks on: March 23, 2012 11:08:18 AM
If you have any knee socks (or longer) you could make headbands from the leg portion.  (I'm thinking this out as I type so. . .)

Cut the foot part off and then cut the leg part into strips.  If one strip is long enough (for your head) just clean up the edges and DONE.  If it's not, sew two strips together then make finish off.

(I think it's already been mentioned)  I like recycled rag rugs.  You should be able to trim up the socks so you could weave them into a rag rug (a la the recycled t-shirt rag rugs).
