1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Purple Sundress on: July 02, 2007 05:42:23 PM
I found this fabulous purple batik fabric at joanns, so I picked it up and made this dress. It didn't turn out how I wanted really, but I don't hate it.
I was going to put in a zipper, but failed miserably, so I decided to go with a lace-up back.
In the pic I forgot to lace up part of the back. Oops.


Pardon the god awful face in the pics.  Sad
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Many FO's (pic heavy) on: July 02, 2007 05:36:37 PM
I finally decided to post projects that I've been working on. These have been completed over the last few months.
1) Irish hiking scarf. This is a present for my mom for Christmas next year (never too early to start). Made with Knitpicks Shine worsted.

2) Anthropologie inspired capelet. Made with some leftover yarn. I think it's brown sheep worsted.

3) Ribbed Scarf made with two strands of caron's simply soft in two colors of purple.
As modeled by my teddy bear.

Fancy shot.

4) Slouch hat. Inspired by le slouch and mary jane's pithy hat.

Pardon the mugshot photo.  Roll Eyes

As modeled by the floor.

Thanks for looking!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Hammock for rats! on: September 23, 2006 08:10:07 PM
I stole this idea from Chubby Pixie (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118567.0). She made an adorable flower hammock for her Guinea Pigs out of polar fleece and I just knew that my rats would love it for ever and ever or until they chewed it all up. So.. I set to work and I made a blue one for my little babies. Mine is not nearly as nice as hers... but my rats enjoyed it until they chewed through one of the ribbons that held it up.. now they have to wait until I replace that. Oh well. Without further ado:

Comments are appreciated and adored... in fact I'll be your best friend forever! I swear!!  Roll Eyes
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Paper Mache Dress Form on: September 23, 2006 08:04:26 PM
I haven't quite finished this yet or used it.. but i'm excited so, ya'll get to see it! It was a relatively easy process but I hated standing that long! I also can't imagine doing it by yourself. I used brown packing tape taht has to be wetted in order to be used. I'm really looking forward to using it and I will post updates as I continue!
Front (I have two belly buttons.. oops).

Comments and suggestions are adored! Thanks!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / My kitty on his new knit blanket on: May 05, 2006 12:54:43 PM
Mostly this is an excuse to post a picture of my cat! But! I also knit the blanket he's sitting on. It's just a basic blanket, but my cats really love it. Yet another reason people should really knit blankets for cats in shelters!

This is merlin and his new blanket:
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / branching out-- purse? (pic heavy) on: May 05, 2006 12:48:57 PM
So, I started making the branching out scarf from knitty for my mom for mother's day, but I'm lazy and only made it about 18 inches in. So, instead of giving my mom a very short scarf, I made it into a purse by sewing the sides shut and adding a button and a strap. She really likes it (she got a preview, she's not actually getting it until mothers day because I'm a brat). I'm pretty proud, it's my first lace project.

My floor doesn't make a very good model:

And a blurry close up of the button which I love:

Thanks for looking!
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / FOs: skully and cat warming-- lots of pics on: May 05, 2006 12:42:24 PM
I finished this skully with a bit of help from the boards, I was, like everyone else on here, a bit confused about the neckline, but I figued it out eventually. This is my first sweater and I love it. I wore it to class a few weeks ago and everyone loved it and I got so many comments about wearing a skull on a sweater.. it was wonderful.
My only complaint is that it makes it look like I don't have a chest, but sometimes that happens, oh well. I only did one skull because I'm into asymmetry and I made the sleeves really long because, well, I like long sleeves.
Without further ado my sweater:
As modeled by my bed: (pardon my feet)

I'm wearing it now! (the black thing is my cat's tail)

My cat thinks I'm crazy for taking pictures of the mirror: (he's in the sink)

This is the ball from the Cat Warming Set from SNBN. I didn't want to do the I cord because it looks like something my cats would strangle themselves with... but they're a little stupid. They actually will not play with the stupid thing, I even put cat nip in it. That's how it happens sometimes.

This is it:

I left the long strings on the end because I thought they might like it. They don't.

Thanks for looking!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / long skirt from khakis and napkins on: May 05, 2006 12:33:10 PM
This was the first piece of clothing I made I think. It was about 5 years ago, so the skirt no longer fits of course. But, I still love it. I had the napkins sitting around because I was going to make a valance for my room with them (it was painted those colors at the time). The khaki's were given to me by my gym teacher, random I know.
I was really proud of it at the time, so I thought I would share.  Grin
Pardon my birkenstocks!

This is the front.

This is the back

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / gay themed party... help? on: April 13, 2006 10:10:32 AM
Hello everyone!
I am president of a lgbt (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) caucus on my campus. We have a biannual dance and I am in charge of decorating this semester. I'm thinking that I'm doing the obvious rainbow colored theme.
So, i'm buying helium and lots of balloons and streamers and such, but i'm not all that great at decorating things like this and I have no idea what I got myself into... lol

We don't really have restraints on the budget, we have a dj coming in, but the space is a little small...

Anyone have any ideas off the top of their head??

Thank you so much!  Cheesy
