Here is the one I completed in Rowan wool cotton, a lovely soft yarn. Smiley

14  My very first crochet project-star blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by tejer on: June 14, 2006 02:29:03 PM
I made the twinkle twinkle little star  blanket featured in this thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93048.msg878837

This was a perfect blanket for my friend's baby because he has a star-themed baby room. I had the cream colored yarn in my stash, so I just found another color that looked good with it. This isn't a difficult project, pretty easy for even a beginner--after a few false starts. It's not perfect, but I think a few mistakes just give it more personality and I'm sure baby Will won't care. Smiley

I'm a high school Spanish teacher and need to have gifts for several of my seniors who are graduating and going off to college. I decided to buy some pillowcases and embroider them to say 'Dreaming in Spanish'. I used the 'Stitch it Kit' for the banner and the letters. The designs are common Mexican motifs found on ruins and art from ancient Mexico. I just drew the motifs as best as I could and then transferred them on the pillows.

16  Embroidered geraniums in Needlework: Completed Projects by tejer on: May 04, 2006 01:25:45 PM
I made this over the last 4 days as a gift for my mom for Mother's Day this year. I'm a beginning embroiderer, so I think I made some mistakes while doing this. Most noticeably, there is puckering. I'm still going to frame it though and I love how it looks in general.

If anyone has advice about puckering--help me out. I used a round frame and it just doesn't seem to keep the fabric taut enough for me. I think the material I chose was kind of dense too and therefore I had to pull the fabric more to get the needle through.

Great stuff! I didn't even know you could do that with shrinky dinks.

red_willow let me know she received, but she has been really busy. I only took pics of a few of the things I made, but I will try to post them later.


Edited to add:

I learned to embroider for this swap and now I am hooked. Here are two handkerchiefts I embroidered for red_willow. One has her initial on it.

Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of the following items because I was so excited to send my package out.  I made a wooden box (that looked like a book) covered with pics and decoupage glue. I put pictures of Darcy and Lizzie from the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice on it. It was hard to part with! I made coasters with movie pics from Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Sense and Sensibility on them as well. They were covered in resin to be waterproof. And the last thing I made was a reticule, but it turned out looking kind of like a gift bag.

All in all a very fun swap! I really enjoyed making things for this and it inspired me to learn new things.

I received today from red_willow. She send me a one project bag for my knitting and I love it. The colors are awesome, and the lace adds such a nice Regency touch. She also send me two skeins of beautiful hand spun yarn (one is alpaca and I think the other is lamb's wool). I've never used hand spun yarn and I am so excited to try it! Smiley The last item is a silk scarf like Elizabeth Bennet wore when she arrives home and sees Jane after finding out that Lydia ran off with Wickham.

Thanks so much Red Willow! I LOVE IT ALL Cheesy

I received my package from kiki_eks today. She sent me a bag crocheted from recycled plastic bags and also some recycled yarn. The last item is really cool--it's styrofoam from the containers you get at restaurants and there are instructions on how to bake it in your oven and make stuff with it. It sounds almost like shrinky dinks. So cool--I never knew you could do this!

Here are pics:

I finished the first handkerchief and made another one with violets for my grandma.
