11  nutsaboutcrochet13's chapstick kitties! in Crochet: Completed Projects by katiebread on: February 21, 2008 07:00:43 PM

The gray one is for my friend Wynn, who is currently in Australia.  The orange one's name is Cheeto, and he's mine. XD  They will eventually have tails once I get unlazy enough to figure out my new knitting spool.  Thanks for the pattern, nutsaboutcrochet13!

12  Re: Sewing Machine / Serger Q&A in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by katiebread on: January 08, 2008 07:38:41 AM
I found my mom's old Sears Kenmore 158.10400 in the attic.  It is perfectly intact, but missing the manual.  I've looked online and cannot find said manual.  Obviously the thing needs a good cleaning, because it's been in the attic for about 20 years, but I think it's still usable.  My roommate fired it up and the bobbin tension seems to be off.  I thought I would post pictures of it to see if anyone had any insights, as I have never had a sewing machine and haven't the first clue how to even thread the thing.  Undecided

13  Mostly ornaments, and also Ralph the Wonder Llama in Winter Holidays by katiebread on: December 19, 2007 06:33:08 PM

I did not make Ralph the Wonder Llama.  My roommate, the talented gaudiknight, knitted and felted him for me.  In her words, I saw him as a blank canvas and promptly made the blanket for him out of felt.  I'm going to put some gold sequins in the middle of the flower, but I don't have any on hand and I do not wish to venture to Wal-Mart this close to Christmas.
The ornaments in the bottom of the picture are made with Sculpey.  The Christmas tree and the candy cane were made using cookies cutters, and the rest are free-hand.  I'm going to use them as package-toppers or to decorate cards.  I wish I could varnish them, but I have nothing on hand with which to do so, and the only place within an hour of my home that would carry whatever I need is Wal-Mart.
The little mice in the top of the picture are made with walnuts from my grandparents's front yard.  The squirrels did the work of halving them neatly for me, and I have not been able to duplicate their efforts.  I might look for some more tomorrow.
The Christmas tree was modeled after a mosaic thing someone posted a long time ago on the Poly Clay board.  I'm going to keep that one for me and varnish it after the holidays. Wink
Mice details.  I used them as an excuse to get some googley eyes.  Wink

Let me know what you think, especially if you know some way to halve walnuts without a Dremel tool.
(Yes, I know I am less of a woman because I do not own a Dremel tool.  I'll put it on my wedding registry.  Grin)

mimiw and I did another personal swap!  This time we swapped Christmas gifts for other people.

I made her the hat, and she made me 5 beautiful little tea wallets!  My friends are going to be so happy.  Grin

Here is a picture of me wearing the hat.  Let me know if you want it a bit longer, mimiw!

15  T-shirt quilt top in Quilting: Completed Projects by katiebread on: October 10, 2007 06:25:10 AM

My boyfriend's mom is a MASTER QUILTER (caps are necessary) and she is teaching me how to quilt!  I just finished the top of my first project and thought I would show it off.  I don't have enough of the stripey fabric for the back, so I'm going to use some of her stash to fill in the gaps.  Thanks for looking!

ETA: http://www.arquilts.com/  This is the website of the wonderful woman who is helping me learn to quilt!

16  Stash-busting dice bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by katiebread on: October 10, 2007 05:39:40 AM

The bottom yarn is Renaissance something or another that I got from my roommate for my birthday.  I only had one skein of it.  The rest went into a neckwarmer with the same sc, dc, sc, etc. stitch pattern.  The top yarn is from elann.com and is left over from mimiw's shawl that I made her for a personal swap.  I have two full skeins left, so more little bags may well be on my horizon!  The ribbon is from my stash and the beads are from mimiw.  I am very happy with the look of this bag and the fact that I busted some stash!  All of my projects are stash-busters these days.  Wink

Here is the bag open and next to a water bottle for scale.  Thanks for looking!

18  Marjorie's snow dragon in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by katiebread on: August 21, 2007 06:39:37 PM

Oh my gosh, all of this schoolwork SUCKS!  Woe is me!

Wait, what's that?

The dice have made me their KING!

This guy's name is Errol Flynn-Flann, and he's my character in my boyfriend's D&D dragons campaign.  He is a swashbuckler and a reckless adventurer!  I modified the eyes somewhat because I didn't want to go out and buy animal eyes, but I had plenty of buttons.  I have since smooshed them down a bit so they don't look so bug-like.  Pattern is here: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?p=612565#post612565

Mimi and I did a personal swap again!  I am so lucky, for look at my booty!

The fun stencils are Mimi's logo!  She sent me a hot pack with lavender oil, a pouch, a headband, and a lovely crochet hook roll!

The crochet hook roll rolled up and the other side of the headband.

Are these not the most gorgeous batik fabrics you have ever seen?  I am off to gaze at Mimi's website and wish I had money Wink  I'd love to swap with you again any time, Mimi!

mimiw and I did a personal swap...my first swap ever!  Her skills completely blow me away.  I just moved back home today and you can hardly walk in my room.  Instead of cleaning, I took pictures of my goodies and then readied my new bag for use tomorrow and BEYOND!

My beautemous bag lying flat.  Check out that fabric!  SO PRETTY!  The colors match everything I own.

And what bright, vibrant colors they are!

POCKETSES!  She even sent me a pen in the pen pocket!  I think mimiw reads minds.  This bag is so, so awesome.

As if that wasn't enough, she sent a matching drawstring bag that now holds my new camera and its cord, ready for adventures!

A matching wallet!  mimiw spoiled me rotten!!!  I also got two spools of pretty red, white, and black patterned ribbon, a strip of purple/blue/pink cord, and some cotton yarn to inspire future projects!  THANK YOU MIMIW, YOU ARE THE BEST!  I would do another personal swap with you in a heartbeat!
