91  Re: foc swap 3 gallery! in The Swap Gallery by hoxierice on: June 17, 2006 04:09:14 PM
I got my second package today. And while my secret partner assures me that this is only part 1 of the "large" package, I am completely happy with it, big, small whatever!

It is a WONDERFUL DPN/crochet hook holder! Modled on the rug we bought this afternoon! Now I have to track down all of my hooks and needles! With stitch markers and a tin with a magnet in the bottom for yarn needles. I absolutely adore it. The tag says, which you can't read in the posted picture, "quite possibly the fattest needle roll ever".

My partner wrote that it is something that she needs, but finds much more interesting to make for someone else. That is exactly how I feel and why I asked for one  Wink

Yeah! Thank you FOCer. Now I just hope that I haven't lost all my needles....

So this package arrived on Saturday and it topped off a week of amazing swap packages! Gothmom and I have some stuff in common which is what prompted her to send me this special cuff. I am currently a graduate student in costume technology. This cuff holds the motto of her costume professor from college.

I showed it to my boyfriend and he said "yep that captures the essence of a theater technician!" And while I know several people who would be shocked by the statement. I think it is perfect and I will wear in proudly, in defiance, next year when the designers get too demanding, anal and ridiculous.

She also sent me two more cuffs

Thank you gothmom!

93  Re: Not Your Grammy's Pincushion Swap ROUND 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by hoxierice on: June 09, 2006 03:59:00 PM
I received from my partner today. Watch out everyone it is so beautiful and amazing so please remember that I didn't choose her to be my partner because I knew it would be spectacular, I chose her because I wanted to felt the pincushion I made! Without further ado, lots of pictures. I have to take pictures outside because the lighting in my apartment is bad--which hopefully will change when I move next weekend. So in the background is my dirty "patio" and notice the fact that I put down a scrap of fabric so that my pincushion would not get dirty.
The front view, isn't she cute!


The back view...watch the obi!             It unsnaps to reveal a place for needles!


I didn't give alwaysinmyroom any limitation on what I wanted, so she came up with this all on her own. The one thing that I did ask for was a place to put needles.
alwaysinmyroom said she made it with kimono scraps...I am sure she can tell you more.

Thank you so much I truly love her! I think there was something else I was going to say, but I forgot

YEAH I received from my partner today. It is a wonderful leather cuff with beads and feathers.

Also some Japanese Carmel covered stick things. I was going to take a picture, but then I forgot.
My boyfriend even tried them which is amazing because I was surprised he would eat something packaged in a foregin language, OR something that was sent by an unknown person.
My secret partner give me a note, which explains that she (I am assuming) made the cuff based on my nonsensical, esoteric descriptions of my "style". She also paid attention because the cuff is leather and has bead detail, both things I mentioned in my questionnaire. The grosgrain ribbon is pretty cool too.

Thanks secret partner! I wore it when I went to the grocery store this evening.

96  Re: Dying Silk ? Help ! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by hoxierice on: June 08, 2006 06:46:20 AM
You can dye wool with kool-aid and icing dye, set with vinegar, do these work on silk? How well?

Well, I did it and it turned out fine, for my needs. I understand the advantages of acid dye and they may be cheaper, but I dye very little and icing dye is easy to get my hands on.

This is my shibori scarf, first dye


Overdye, OK, the picture doesn't show the fine blue to blue/green color variation, but it is there and really cool!

Hey, just taking pictures so here are some from my one-on-one partner sissychrissy1

I have lighting issues

The case--a granola box way to recycle! And the cozy for my mini.

The picture of just the cozy doesn't seem to be working right, but it is so cute! pink sparkly felt with my name embroidered on it. By the way where do you get sparkly felt?

Here is the playlist, I have listened to it several times, it is very good. I especially like the instrumental covers.
I got you use my fancy digital camera, It has a setting for different kinds of texts!

I received a Stenciling kit from hertrigger, see, my camera is SUPER COOL, but the lighting is a big issue!

A how to binder
paint and thing to hold paint
oh so many sponge brushes
Alphabet stencils
x-acto knife

Am I forgetting anything...there was a lot.

Oh and of course

A baggie of craft promo stuff.
I did look at everything and go to the sites, but then again it is summer and I have a lot of free time. What a neat idea.

Thanks hertrigger

99  Pole dyed shibori in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by hoxierice on: May 02, 2006 07:52:04 AM
I have wanted to do this for a while, I gathered the supplies and was going to do it on my own. BUT a new project was added to one of my classes (costuming techniques) and it happened to be a shibori project


It is a silk scarf dyed with fiber reactive dye. The base is the red, I dyed half fuchsia and half fire(?) red, wrapped it up on the pole (see link below) and overdyed it with blue. Now it is all crinkly and cool!

More pictures of the process.

Finally I have some time, after getting my homework done, my boyfirend well and spilling blue dye over my hands (after I took the photo) I can post the cuffs that bobolink sent. The second one is a little fuzzy, sorry, but that is what happens when you take pictures of your own arms at five AM!!!

Thanks again bobolink.
