11  Lined drawstring bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by miyoko79 on: September 03, 2007 08:13:46 PM
My parents' friends are expecting their first grandchild, so this is for holding the hand puppets my parents got for them:

We got lucky, and even found matching ribbon for the drawstring Smiley  I used this tutorial.

12  Cabled scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by miyoko79 on: September 03, 2007 08:10:09 PM
I had this beautiful merino wool (color doesn't come out in the pics, but it's Sapphire Gems in Teal) for about a year and a half and couldn't find the perfect project.  Then I saw a gorgeous cable pattern in "Inventive Cable Knits" by Fiona Ellis, and it was love at first sight!  Here's the whole scarf blocking, sorry you can't really see the detail:

And here's the pattern close up:

I just can't wait for winter now!

Ok, so this is what regency ladies looked like on the days they DIDN'T wear their dresses backwards:

I need to do some pressing, but I'm just so relieved it fits correctly! Smiley

I received from ScotSkipper yesterday, got some help taking pics tonight...

First, a "What would Jane Austen do?" bracelet:

And the part I've been REALLY looking forward to:

My very own white linen regency dress!  It's a perfect fit, too!  Now I can be Elizabeth Bennett for Halloween, which I've been dying to do for years Smiley  Thank you, ScotSkipper!!!!!!!

15  Simplicity 4097 - my first dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by miyoko79 on: March 31, 2007 09:05:13 PM
Adorn Magazine was offering the pattern for free, so I thought, "Why not?"

It's got plenty of mistakes, but for a first dress I'm pretty damn proud.  It fits well except for the armholes, but I think they'd fit perfectly over a turtleneck sweater instead of a thin shirt.  It's a nice dark charcoal wool I got at 40% off, and I finished it just in time to wear to the movies tonight!  There are big pockets that are pretty hard to see - if you want to see it made properly, check out nushybum's.

Eeeeeeeeee!!!  I received from Tygir today!!!

There were four kinds of tea, Lemon Verbena from her garden, all kinds of stickers and cutouts, a cross stitch, green tea soap, a knitted facecloth with a teapot on it, and a stained-glass teacup.  I can't believe how much you made, Tygir!  THANK YOU!!!!!

Not sure how well you can see it in this picture, but our colors were ivory and brown and deep red:

Just be careful about mixing ivory and white - when we went to rent tuxes, we were thinking white shirts, but the salesperson said if I wore my ivory dress next to them it would just make my dress look dirty.  So ivory shirts it was! Smiley

18  First quilting project - log cabin apron with pockets! in Quilting: Completed Projects by miyoko79 on: January 17, 2007 04:44:55 PM
I was watching "Uncommon Threads" on Monday, they were making a log cabin apron.  I thought it was great, except it didn't have any pockets!  So I thought about it, went to the fabric store that afternoon, and then got snowed in since Tuesday, and here's the result!

The fabrics I scrounged together in the remnants section:

The finished apron:

Inside of the pockets:

I was learning as I went along, but I'm very happy with the (slightly crooked) results!  I think it's going to end up being a gift for someone.

I'm on a stashbusting roll!

Made from this pattern, with a bit of leftover Simply Soft.  I'm a slow knitter, but it only took me two days!
