I must warn you I had a 2magapixel camera that was on its last legs when these pictures where taken and they are not the best quality.
 This are large plushes the carrot and cucumber can be used as body pillows. ^^ All made with polar fleece, and polyfill. The ones with faces have animal safety eyes and embroidery. Some of the fabrics were colored using dye-na-flo paints from Jacquard. These were made last year and I forgot to post them . . .

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / reverseable hobo bag in yellow on: September 26, 2007 07:29:33 PM

I saw a hobo bag that I liked at Meijers one day but the fabric was not my cup off tea. So i bought the bag measured it, returned it and made my own, but better. I made my version reverseable and with a better closer. I have plans on making more in different fabrics. This is now my favorite bag.
23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Abstract embroidery on: September 26, 2007 07:18:41 PM

This is part of a large soft sculpture painting. It is mostly satin stitch and beading, it was my first time embroidering and now I am hooked.
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Disgruntled Superhero on: September 26, 2007 07:12:23 PM
Disgruntled superhero. . . he is disgruntled and he doesn't care. His motto is "save yourself"
He is made from various fabrics, ploy fill, and pipe cleaners. ^^
a slightly needle sculpted face. 8-10 inches tall

After I finished him I would take him around with me.
25  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday 9/7/07 on: September 07, 2007 06:27:27 AM
Happy Friday everyone. I can't wait to see everyones yarn. ^^

I haven't posted in a while because of a lack of spinning and phototaking.

 This yarn is spun from a rainbow merino roving that I bought at the MA fiber fest. It is plied with brown woolly nylon thread.

This yarn finished up a superwash roving that I got for my birthday(bought at Heritage Spinning and Weaving) and plied with iridescent thread.

This yarn is handdyed merino and mohair, sparkle fibers, sequins, plied with gold thread. About 4oz. One day this yarn will be a kooky hat with a matching monster pin for my best friend.
26  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Overshot sample on: September 05, 2007 06:07:05 AM
Durring my weaving class when I was waiting for the larger loom, I wove a small overshot sample out of orange and teal. It was my first time doing overshot and I love it. Over the summer I bought the same yarn to make a larger piece of fabric. ^^
The draft is from A Handweavers Patternbook by Marguerite P. Davison

27  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Edited: Painting with yarn, big piece off the loom finished and exhibited on: May 15, 2007 07:08:30 AM
I was in a intermedate weaving class this semester and we concentrated on rug making techniques and tapestry
I painted a design and then wove it

They use rachone(sp?) and flosa

the yarns are stash busters with a lot of hand dyed, the large piece uses lamb's pride bulky and more hand dyed and leftovers

12" by 12" mounted on stretched black velvet

39" by 42"
off the loom ^____________^ I wanted to run around with it tied to my back like cape wendsday when I finished it

at the student show ^^

 Thanks for looking
28  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Woven monofiliment on: April 05, 2006 06:12:21 PM
Well I wove this a long time ago then I misplaced my camera. I was inspired by Anniken Amundsen http://kunst.no/amundsen/  
well here are the images of it on my loom


I don't have a picture of it off the loom but it wants to curl and spiral I think it the nature of fishing line.

The hardest part was seeing what to thread where.  It is also slick so getting a good tension was a real pain, and it slowly stretches. I don't know if I would make a larger sheet of fabric or not.
29  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / A spinsters spring break on: April 05, 2006 05:53:56 PM

30  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Seivers looms and falling out of tension on: March 07, 2006 11:27:31 AM
Hi, I am a lurker, my name is Kyla and I am a beginer, but I am having
issues with my loom (I goggled and searched in the archives first). I
have a used Seivers floor loom, and the front beam falls out of
tension. It is like a stopper falls loose that then the whole thing
goes. (I have a link to a drawing to clarify) The gear and stopper are
brass and where the issue is has started to discolor.

  Has anyone else had this problem? I have thought of filing the area,
or some how adding bulk to it (with wax, solder, or an adhesive spongy
pad (like a jar opener pad), molding paste). I feel as if it needs
more friction. I figure if I can contact the company and they can send
me a new beam or stopper . . .  but right now I need temporary fix. (I
have a wedding throw on it).  I try and not use that part but
sometimes it hits the sweet spot on the loom and I hate to move it.
If any one has a Seivers loom could you send me an image of that area?
Maybe my stopper is on backwards.
thanks for any help.
