1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / cabin camouflage dress on: March 27, 2007 09:51:21 PM
I, along with many many others, have made the new Built by Wendy dress and I love how it turned out.  They seem to have corrected the sizing issues on the last batch of patterns, yea!  I used some fabric I picked up at reprodepot.com last year and used purple for the contrast.  I need to wear it in an urban landscape though, or nobody will be able to find me.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / nobody will steal my lunch on: March 27, 2007 09:46:46 PM
I made a little tote to take my lunch to work in that won't be easily confused with other lunches, usually packed in our store bags.  No more trying to figure out which lunch is mine!

sadly i can only figure out how to post tiny pictures.  sigh.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Phew! Heating Pad Cover Complete! on: March 26, 2007 11:13:27 PM
It's taken me a long time to get this done, never enough spare time.  Had I spare time, this probably wouldn't have taken much of it at all, but alas.  Here is my heating pad cover from the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book, I love how it turned out and I think it will be getting a lot of use.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / where did you get that dress? on: January 29, 2007 10:29:53 PM

I made McCalls 5315 the other day, and I love the way it turned out.  It's a cotton/lycra blend and I had to make the 4 even though according to the pattern back I was an 8, good thing though because the amount of fabric stated to buy on the back was wrong.  Several people asked me where I had gotten it, a few asking if I had purchased it at Barney's or at Nordstrom where I work, so I think that means a job well done.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / big zig or first quilt on: April 10, 2006 07:57:40 PM
I just finished my first quilt, it's the Big Zig from Denise Schmidt Quilts.  It took a while, mostly because it is very hard to cram a queen sized quilt under a regular armed sewing machine.  Phew!  I have to say I can't wait to make more from this book.  So cute it is.

Here is a tiny photo of it, it's an odd angle becasue the bedroom is so small it's about all I could get.

There are photos of the process here http://snaggletooth.b-e-e.net.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Heirloom Cardigan on: March 01, 2006 08:25:26 PM
I've just finished the Heirloom Cardigan from Rowan 37.  I had the knitting done a while ago but it took me ages to find the correct buttons.  I finally found beautiful pearl buttons at Tender Buttons in Chicago.  I felt like after all this work on such tiny needles the buttons were of the utmost importance.  I knit it in Rowan 4ply Soft (so dreamy) color Goblin on US2 needles.

I wish I could get a larger image to show all the stitches but I couldn't get one of appropriate size to upload, but I do
have one posted here snaggletoothbee.blogspot.com.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / mmmmittens on: January 01, 2006 11:13:02 PM

I am on a mission to finish up projects that have dragged on too long...may I present the Striped Mittens.  They are knit using Blue Sky Alpacas Sportweight and if you've never knit mittens in 100% alpaca I would highly recommend it.  They're so lightweight yet warmer than my wool ones and oh so soft.  Makes you want to rub them on your face.  mmmm.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my germs on: December 24, 2005 03:33:56 PM
I like to pretend this is the bronchitis germ I am just getting over, but really it is based on a prokaryote.

edited to fix photo link.  hopefully it works.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Clap for the Coldest Girl on: December 05, 2005 11:13:01 PM
I finished up my Clapotis (probably the last person on earth to knit this one) just in time for the single digit temperatures.  Whew!  And since I am the coldest person on the planet I made it out of Classic Elite Lush and lengthened it quite a bit so I can use it as an uber-warm scarf or as a toasty wrap.
