1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree of Life pendant on: March 21, 2007 06:15:44 AM
I finally dragged out the beading goodies yesterday and made a Tree of Life pendant. I used adventurine and sterling silver

and one with my hand in there so you can see the size

This one is for my sister and there is another I'm working on for myself. I have plain flat disk garnets(would act as an apple) and I'm debating adding one... just one to each tree. I think it would be a really cool feature and add to the meaning of the tree. *shrug* I'll update the pic's if I decide to add it.
Thanks for looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Homespun knit purse on: February 04, 2006 08:53:41 PM
I wasn't sure which forum this belonged in as it could go in several, but I thought other purse makers would appreciate it the most.

I started with this...

My second homespun yarn, Kool-Aid dyed wool... I call it "With a Twist of Lemon"

After ripping out several scarves I started with this yarn I decided it needed to be made into something that would truely show off it's colors properly. Plus I ended up with only 68 yards of yarn so any scarf was going to have to be thin to have any length to it.
What I made was this instead...

I lined it with some purple tie dye type cotton from the quilt wall at Jo-Annes.
Thanks for looking and for allowing me to share my knitting addiction in yet another forum other than the knitting or spinning forum!  Cheesy
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Is it just my dogs? on: January 06, 2006 06:58:45 PM
Is it just my dogs or do other spinners find their dogs wanting to steal, pull apart and slobber all over their wool? I almost gave up spindling because I didn't want to put up with the constant fight with my dogs. The minute that spindle comes out they're sitting by my feet on the ready to grab and run.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingerless gloves/ half gloves on: October 24, 2005 07:46:44 PM

Pretty basic. I've made tons of mittens before, but not on dpns and tons of socks before on dpns so this was my first project having to do with the hands and dpns. I was scared of the fingers,but it was cake! I can't wait to make full gloves now.

They are basic wool/acrylic blend with the pattern half made up by me and half from Family Circle Easy Knitting Holiday 2004 issue. I did them in black because they were originally for my semi goth son, but his fingers wouldn't fit in the fingers... an over sight by me.. I could have made a few adjustments so they would have fit, but I stupidly didn't check them on him until I had one completely done. I don't think he'll lose any sleep over it.... I don't think he would have worn them much.... 6th grade things that keep you warm can be pretty "out" even though we live in the snow belt region of upstate NY with an annual snow fall of 160 inches!! *sigh*
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / It's a start! ** 2nd pic added** on: September 26, 2005 07:04:24 AM
Only 4oz and a bit thick and thin, but it's a start. I'm not even sure what kind of wool this is. A lady at the NY state fair wool shed gave it to me. This is my first yarn, koolaid dyed with berry punch. This has since been made into a a pair of fingerless gloves... real basic, just knitted in sst and seamed up the side with a place left in seam to insert my thumb. I added a bow on the back of each.... I used every bit of this yarn that I could!! lol

6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Plying question on: August 30, 2005 04:30:09 PM
 I'm new to this board and new to spinning. I just obtained a drop spindle made from 2 CD's. Quite a nifty little thing. I've been playing around for several days with some wool that was given to me and I finally got a decent single going. Now I want to make another single and ply them together. I'm lost at this point. Next I'm to take the single off my spindle and wind it into a ball.... one site I read had the single being wound into a center pull ball. If this is the case then I'll be plying my singles from the end I ended with on the spindle. Other sites I've read say to just wind the single into a ball and use it like that... if that's the case then I'll be starting my plying with the end I started on the spindle. Is there a differance which end I start with to ply?

Thanks and I can see why spinning is so addictive!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Earrings and bracelet on: August 15, 2005 08:00:43 PM
Hi All!
I'm new to the board, but I've been crafting for over 20 years or so. I've done all kinds of crafts and own my own handmade soap coampany(on break at the moment). Recently I've been getting more and more into jewlery making (when I'm not knitting  Tongue )
Anyway.... here's my latest creations.

The bracelet was snagged by my sister the minute she saw it. It's done with tigertail and some neat Swarovski crystals. There are 2 strands that have crimp beads seperating the beads and then one last strand that has the beads floating. The earrings are made with sterling silver wires and headpins. I'm in the process of making a matching bracelet to the earrings.

Thanks for looking.
