11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Help Marilyn!!! on: April 29, 2005 07:27:08 PM
So I've been working on this embroidery for at least four months. I stitch a tiny bit, and then I put it down for ages. I cannot seem to finish her, or even just work on her for any decent length. Does anybody have any tips or encouragement to offer? I don't want her to languish any longer!!

12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / I HEART Paper Piecing!!! on: January 27, 2005 09:00:29 PM
Ok, I know that was a lame joke...


I made this tonight out of boredom. It's pinker than it looks in the photo; I made it out of some random scraps I had left over. I'm going to make a few more and incorporate them into a sampler quilt.
13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Marilyn and an Apple on: January 26, 2005 09:14:03 AM
Needlepointing has become my new hobby (obsession) recently, and I just finished these two canvases. The Marilyn Monroe one I got off of Ebay for about $10. The apple was purchased from a local needlepoint store. It has another canvas that goes with it, that shows the inside of the apple, and I'll post it as soon as I finish it. Enjoy!


14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Just a humble tea towel... on: December 01, 2004 09:24:22 PM
I was bored one evening, and tired of my more intricate embroidery-in-progress, so I busted out my brand spankin' new Jenny Hart Stitch It knit and made myself a tea towel. Inspired by her adorabled make-up transfers, I decided to quote the fabulous Dolly Parton (in Steel Magnolias) with the phrase, "There is no such thing as natural beauty!" Sorry the photo isn't great; I had a hard time getting all the colors to show up. It's much more vibrant in person!

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Happy Stars Quilt on: December 01, 2004 09:17:24 PM
I finished this quilt several months ago, but I've been lazy about posting it. I call it my Happy Stars quilt, because the color combo makes me smile every time I look at it. It's mainly quilted in red thread in a loose stipple pattern, but the white around the stars is quilted in white in a paisely pattern. Sorry, I couldn't get a decent photo of the quilting. The stars themselves are not quilted, because I wanted them to be a little puffy. I'm very pleased with how it turned out!!

16  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Warm Fuzzies Scarf Question on: November 19, 2004 08:16:09 PM
OK, I want to make the Warm Fuzzies scarf from SnB Nation, but I can't for the life of me understand the stitch pattern! It says:

*P1, k the second st on the left needle, leave this st on the needle and k the first st on the left needle; drop both sts off the needle...

So I understand I purl the first stitch and then I knit the second stitch, but I don't undestand the rest of it! I'm a beginning knitter and this chart doesn't quite make sense to me. Can any of you explain it in a simpler way? Thanks for the help!!
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Birds in the Air Quilt on: November 08, 2004 01:22:04 PM
My mom made this as a wedding present for my cousin and his wife. She wanted a bright quilt with primary colors, and that's definitely what she got! The pattern is Birds in the Air. It's quilted in red thread, so you can see how pretty the quilting is on the ivory backing. Enjoy!

18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Halloween Cat Quilt on: October 29, 2004 06:49:21 PM
Ok, so technically it's not finished, because I haven't had time to take it to the quilter yet, but I wanted to post this before Halloween. This was my first paper pieced quilt. The pattern is from an issue of the Foundation Piecer. Let me know what you think!!

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Valentino Appliques on: October 17, 2004 07:42:12 PM
OK, this is my last one for tonight. I'm just so happy I'm able to post pictures now, I've gotten a little carried away!

These are 2 appliques I did for a report on Valentino while I was in design school. They are based on 2 original Valentino sketches, one from the fifties and one from the nineties. I did them to show how Valentino's use of embroidery and black and white has changed over the years. Everyone in the class really liked them, and I got an A on my report!

These are fusible applique with marker enhancement. Enjoy!


20  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nefertiti Needlepoint on: October 17, 2004 04:58:13 PM
I wish I could take credit for this, but my mom made it for me. Isn't it pretty?
