1  Sinner/Saint Marilyn in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mikodog on: May 29, 2014 05:46:33 PM
Here is my entry into the contest.  Marilyn as a naughty but nice dancer.  My sketch is attached to show my starting idea.  Her head dress and shoes have bead-work.  The rest I used a variety of stitches to add texture and depth.  Hope you like!

3  J&T Challenge 3: Ode to Mr. Anderson in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mikodog on: April 03, 2011 07:55:26 AM
Being a fan of all things Wes Anderson, this necklace is inspired by some favorites of his work.  On this piece you will find:
Margot Tenenbaums glove post alteration,
a feather left by Mordecai,
a buffalo head/Indian nickle from Eli Cash,
an escaped bee from the Rushmore Beekeepers Club lead by Max Fischer,
a single leaf from Rushmore's Campus, so Max will not miss their colors in the changing fall,
a seashell brought back by Steve Zissou,
the dreamy seahorse from Life Aquatic,
and last but not least a man eating tiger found in Darjeeling Limited.

Thanks for looking!

Sorry if the pics not great.  I used a variety of stitches, beads, and a charm for her necklace.  Embroidered on re-purposed fabric.  Thanks for looking.

5  For My Grandmother in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mikodog on: December 30, 2007 01:17:35 AM
My grandmother, whom I always called Nanny, passed from this world the day after Christmas. She was a very important person in my life, she had helped raise me, and I have always lived close to her.  I wanted to do a piece for her, I know she would like it.  Just thought I'd share it here too.  I am going incorporate into a quilt I am planning.

Here is the second piece I've done. Not a great photo but the best one I could get.  The overall piece is about 10" tall.

9  Flock Together in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Mikodog on: March 01, 2007 09:38:45 AM
These are titled "Flock Together"  collectively they represent Mother Earth, Buddha, and God.  The theme title describes the meaning; no matter what you believe we should all be "one" and support each other.  Thanks for looking! (Each piece is also individually titled which is represented by the phrase on each ATC.)1. This is a World, 2. Be Honest with Yourself, 3. Making it Easier. They are hand drawn, except Buddha, he is an embellished image, with hand drawn wings.  Others are watercolor, color pencil, and markers ect...
