Ooh, sparkly - this looks beautiful Smiley How did you get the French knots to look that perfect (esp. with the metallic thread)? French knots are my nemesis...

Love this bag! I saw those napkins, too, and couldn't picture using them as napkins. This is a great re-use of them - those patterns are too good to waste Smiley

I love this, Katie - I'm willing to bet your coworker will be all sniffly and happy when she gets this Smiley

I have to second (third, whatever) the comments about metallic thread being a beast to work with. I have some gold thread I used for a fleur-de-lis last Christmas, and I haven't picked it back up since that project. Argh. Your clovers, however, look great! The satin stitching is really well done, and I love the sparkliness (is that a word?) the metallic thread gives the clovers.

Don't let that get you down-it's absolutely beautiful, and (you can tell from the boards) there are plenty of people who love your work and would be thrilled to get something like that. Great job on this (especially your handwriting - I know that's tough!) Smiley

Katie, this looks great! I especially love that you worked in the metallic thread. She's going to love it Smiley

This is absolutely gorgeous - great job! The colors work really well together, and your stitching looks great Smiley
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Housewarming present! (img chubby) on: June 22, 2008 12:52:14 PM
A friend is moving into a new place this week, and I wanted to give her something that would personalize the space and (hopefully) make it feel like home as quickly as possible. I hand drew a design inspired by some sixties fabric onto a terrycloth dish towel. The design was finished using split stitch.



Closeups:




I probably won't stitch on a terrycloth towel again - the loops pull too much (as you can see in the closeups). However, I'm fairly pleased with the design and the colors, and I hope she likes it!
18  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Gift Bag from the Sunday Comics on: June 22, 2008 12:45:26 PM
This is fantastic! I love the idea of creating your own gift bag, too - I generally hate the wrapping paper I find at the stores around here. I'm going to have to try this with some of my magazines...
19  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Four leaf clover from craft pad on: June 22, 2008 12:42:52 PM
Good luck charms seem to be the theme of the day Smiley One of my friends recently finished her master's degree, so I wanted to make her a little good luck charm as she looks for jobs/starts a new one soon back home. I stitched up a four leaf clover from the Sublime Stitching craft pad using split stitch and satin stitch, and attached it to dark green felt backing with blanket stitch. I've framed it in a cute, fancy little frame, too. I hope she likes it!

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / From blah white to fun purple storage on: June 20, 2008 07:55:05 PM
I have no storage in my bathroom aside from a medicine cabinet, so I stuck one of those white laminate storage things from Target under my sink. Problem is, it gets splashed by water when I wash my face or hop out of the shower...so the top looks a little water-warped. Solution? Craft paper and clear drawer liner. I can splash away without worrying now - and it matches my shower curtain Smiley



(Ignore the mess - it isn't visible when the drawers are pushed back)

Action shot


Looking at it now, though, I think I want to cover the front of the drawers too (probably in a solid purple, though).  What do you all think?
