Project Name: Totoro blanket
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: this blanket took me about 60 hours to make. I should have posted a photo to claim epic points, but I was too lazy to do so with the image hosting issues. Sorry team, for not getting us an extra 100 points Sad

Anyway, I had to research the bobble stitch, and after reading three tutorials, I decided to do my own thing. I plan on making a tutorial of my own and posting in the community for more bonus points once photo hosting is fixed. I will come back and update this post and several others Ive made at that time.

Team: heroes
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: wire tree
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I was scrolling through Pinterest, and I saw a wire tree pendant Ive alwyas admired, but never considered attempting. I finally decided to give it a go, and Im glad I did because I love it! I researched several written tutorials to figure out how to best do this. The biggest thing I learned making this: dont use 20 gauge wire! Its hard to work with!

I chose Orcs for this battle because the trees ent thingies in the LotR fight the orcs and win in the second movie

Project Name: Aurora painting
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I haven't taken an art class since I was in seventh grade. I never learned how to paint. With some tips from QueenHobo, I was able to paint this canvas. I gave it to her because she liked it so much. I painted a second canvas I like more, but I'm not finished with that one yet, so you'll just have to wait to see it! :p

5  Rainbow Lion Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by storerboughtcreations on: June 17, 2018 02:54:16 AM
I cross stitched this lion for my father for Father's Day. My maiden name is Lyon, so it was very fitting to make him.



I didn't have any black aida cloth on hand large enough to use for this piece, so I had to stitch on all of the black background. I have a rainbow giraffe pattern I'd like to try next, but I think I'll learn how to dye the cloth black for that one!

This piece is 28,836 stitches, is roughly 11x10 inches, and took about 250 hours to finish stitching. I finished this just in time to show him a picture, but not soon enough for it to arrive in time for Father's Day. He's already seen it, and he's super excited to see it in person and get it framed. Smiley

Im not sure if Ill go hero or antihero (totally wish there was villain. Mwahahaha!), but Ive always been on the same team as Roler, so Ill probaby just follow her lead Smiley

I agree that the scavenger hunt was great! The level up looks like a ton of fun! I hope we can do something like the scavenger hunt again, too!

And random question... if I offered a hot pad like this for the raffle, would anyone be interested? And should I allow for color customization or just pick whatever?

Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Photo hangers
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I used one of those services that prints your photos for free. I couldn't figure out what to do with all of the photos until I had the idea to use some leftover twine from an old project and I bought some mini clothespins. I used hot glue to glue the clothespins to the twine after I measured the wall space and how far apart I wanted the photos to be spaced. It took me about 45 minutes from start to finish. It isn't perfect, but I love it!

Photos are glimpses into our past.

As I said over in the swap thread, Bunny1kenobi and I swapped today in person. I LOVE the sloth hoop that she made me! It will be going on my wall in the morning. Id hang it now if I didnt think a neighbor might murder me for hammering after midnight. I also want to find some floating frames to hang the two doodles (her words... I think they are fantastic and better than anything I could ever draw!) in.

Thank you, Bunny1kenobi!

My little nieces name is Audrey Rose. Audrey after our dearly departed grandmother, Rose is the name of QueenHobos mother in law. Her initials are ART, which was our great grandfathers name. So the family names are strong with this one.
