1  Re: Mr. Yard Gnome in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kabili on: December 28, 2007 05:40:51 PM
here's my version! this was a fun post-christmas just-for-me project! thanks for the inspiration!

hmm... it's kinda hard to see the color variation between his face and his beard/hair. maybe if i had some natural light for photos. oh well! i actually didn't have any appropriately colored yarn scraps, so (being the impatient person that i am!) i dyed my white yarn with tea. Smiley i think i may have to add an embroidered buckle for his belt too!

2  help with sanding/buffing? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by kabili on: September 29, 2007 11:47:24 AM
hey eveybody,

i am completely new at poly clay and have been doing some reading here on craftster and at diane b.'s glass attic. i made some flat tiles that i want to sand and buff, and maybe add some kind of polish/finish to make them more shiny. i read that using a dremel is a good way to do the sanding and buffing, so i tried it. i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, but i can't tell any difference between tiles i've worked on and those i haven't! maybe i'm not doing it long enough? maybe i'm using the wrong tools? here's some pics of everything; i'm hoping someone can offer some suggestions. first, here's some of the tiles. the blue ones have some transparent clay marbled in. the whitish ones are all transparent clay, and have some silver leaf on them.


this is my dremel and the attachments i've tried for sanding/buffing.

and here's the other attachments i have in my toolbox. do i have the right things, or do i need to go get something different?

thanks for whatever insights you can offer!

3  beaded ... object that isn't a doll in Beads: Completed Projects by kabili on: May 24, 2006 07:01:49 PM
so i had never tried bead embroidery, but i was inspired by the beaded mermaid craftalong and other beaded dolls i've seen here on craftster. but i'm not really a doll kind of person, so i thought i'd try something flat instead. what do you guys think? (and how on earth do you get decent photos of your beaded projects?)

it's not quite finished, but i felt like posting it anyways. it was (also) inspired by a friend of mine who is a fisherman and whom i have a desperate crush on. err... well, maybe not a crush. desperate feeling of a less innocent nature, shall we say?  Cheesy

anyways, now that it's almost done, i have no idea what to do with it. i guess it was partly one of those process as therapy as opposed to finished product focused kind of projects. but i'd still like to find something useful to do with it, if i can. any ideas?

4  Celtic/Celtic Knotwork Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kabili on: May 05, 2006 03:10:53 PM
Okay everyone, post your goodies here! (ooh, that sounds vaguely naughty, doesn't it? i mean the stuff you receive in the *swap* of course! haha.)

and i know it's not good manners, but i will go ahead and boast that my package arrived already! yay! i received an adorable totebag, a cute rubber stamp, a CD of celtic music, and a fabulous necklace. i already wore the necklace to work today (my package actually arrived yesterday, but i got home late and didn't have time to post) and received many compliments on it. great job, and thank you to theatregirl25!!! here's the pics:

6  Re: Bookmark Swap 4 in The Swap Gallery by kabili on: December 17, 2005 01:27:16 PM
yay! i heard back from starsix today, so all of my bookmarks have been received. and since i have also received from all of my partners, i thought i'd post pics of everything here.

here is what a i received:


ooh, sparkly beads!

the back sides of lv2scrpbk's bookmarks:

and here are pics of what i sent, except for the ones that racehorse87 already posted:

(in case you are wondering, starsix specifically noted that she liked the f-word, so that's why i made this one. it had lyrics to a song i learned in a pub on it.)

this hat is so cute! i think i've knit it for the last 3 babies various friends have had. here is the latest, for a friend/former professor. and some little baby tube socks to go along with it.

8  Re: my ubernatural w/long sleeves - first sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by kabili on: November 27, 2005 07:12:52 PM
well, i didn't make my ubernatural with long sleeves, but i'll post it here anyways, since lesophie was the one who encouraged me to finish it. i think sewing the buttons on made it cuter, i'm so impressed with the finished product! i used lamb's pride bulky, so i had to play with the pattern since my guage was different. i also didn't do the YOs for the raglan increases. so before i show the pics - does anyone have any suggestions for getting the lamb's pride to stop shedding mohair all over the place?!

and without further ado, here it is, in all its ubernatural-ness...

9  Re: New Look 6377- The SewAlong! in Sewing Pattern Reviews by kabili on: July 20, 2005 12:59:56 PM
well, i had abandoned this project for a while because of sizing/gapping issues on the top. finally,  i decided if i was going to fix those problems, i might as well make it a dress i'd be more likely to wear. i made it floor length, and it now has more of a "shell" instead of the straps up top. so this is my modified version of the pattern:

side/back view:

and a close up to show the print:

what do you craftsters think?

10  Re: Lelah's done! (now with PATTERN) in Knitting: Completed Projects by kabili on: April 17, 2005 06:21:59 AM
i was really inspired by this lace pattern, but the sleeveless, strapless nature of the original pretty much ensured i wouldn't wear a true "Lelah." so here is my version, which is a Lelah/Bad Penny (from knitty) combination:

a close-up of the lace (notice the fishtails point in the opposite direction because bad penny is a top-down raglan):

and modeled my moi:

this was a fun project; thanks for the pattern, HelenaJane!
