1  Re: Make me something Fiber Made for the Cold months Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by xray kitten on: October 28, 2009 08:23:28 AM
I recived from Myrhh today! It was a trial and a half to get the Swedish postal company let go of the package, but when I finally made it it was worth everything! I ripped the package up on the bus stop where it was cold and windy, and I had left my mittens and hat at my gf:s, but lo and behold there was a wonderful hat waiting for me, and the most practical mittens I have ever seen, and a beautiful scarf too! I was so happy, but most happy were my cold ears and hands.... Cheesy
The mittens are so cool, it's like mittens and wristwarmers all in one... And they go very good with my bad-ass leather coat... Wink I feel like Buffy the vampire slayer and isn't that what every girl dreams about?

Neat, huh? *grinning like a kid on christmas*

2  Laughing queen with Y-incision, free emb. in Needlework: Completed Projects by xray kitten on: October 08, 2009 11:41:16 AM
I drew this scribble sometime this spring in my journal and went back looking at it again and again. Then this summer it came out as a "get you ass off the wagon and start somewhere!"- project, sort of a pre-study for at huge one I am planning. I wanted to check if I could do this, how long it would take and if I was good enough.

I have used black mouline-yarn on herringbone patterned cotton fabric, and loosely spun silk threads fro the gloves, the beak and the crown. The dress and the bird is in thin thin silk japong wich I sewn on with threads drawn from the fabric. (I went crosseyed....) I am very happy with the result.

The bird is not in the original drawing but I felt there needed to be something, and I tend to like to make birds and the silk fabric as well kinda wanted to be one, so there I was.
The poem is originally a Emily Dickinson one, but I knowingly changed the original word larsony against laughter, because I liked it.

So, I recived from kenners a while ago, and I got TWO parcels!! (me happy girl) Sooo spoiled.... Due to no-internet-situation and an overload of work I haven't been able to post pics until now. Better late then never, though.
There is actually a Alice-shop where she lives! How wonderful wouldn't that be! I would be soo poor and soo happy...

I got an amazing lot..

As you can see... I loved it all so very much, and everything smelled of lavender, wich I love, becuase of the lavenderbags.

And I got some holders wich unfortuantely doesn't show very good at the picture with the Chesiercat on. I went straight to my gluetube and glued them onto some magnets, and now they're holding the cool postcard of the red queen at my fridge. She's guarding my milk...  Cheesy

These are my favourite items! A jewellary set with small white bunnies on and a bookmark and a small purse that are all cute and innocent on the outide and red and dramatic on the inside. I will use it for items for that time of the month, it will be so perfect...  Grin

And a wonderful bag, that has the perfect size for my work items and my lunchbox.

there are so many wonderful things, I felt I had to make a list:
* A totebag
* Some postcards, one of the author himself, one of the red queen, and two pretty pretty ones Kenners made herself
* Some holders with the chesirecat
* Lots of tea and a teaholder(you know one of these things you put the tea in so it doesn't float around in the water) Grin
* A towel with motives from the looking glass, and a small napkin with other motives.
* A bookmark
* A jewellaryset
* A small purse
* Some lavenderbags
* A chocolate penny with alice on it!

I had a great swap!

Love the monkey!

So, pics, as promised...

I got a Katamari Damacy mirror! My roomies try to talk me into putting it up outside my room, so that everyone can see it.

And some goodies, a small mirror to keep in my pocket. Very practical if you tend to put your makeup on on the train to work... And cake! And some cute little notebooks wich I very much need...

A pillowcase knitting bag! Or yarn bag... Also very needful as my yarn stash is gonna explode any minute. With current knitting inside.

And my favorite! A tank girl t-shirt! She painted it herself, amazing woman...  Grin

So... I recived from gentlezombie some days ago, but I haven't had time to post pics until now.

And... I LOVED IT! It was such an amazing package, I picked it up on my way to work and couldn't hold myself from opening it on the train, and I just sat there and smiled, the other passengers must have thought I was quite mad...

I got this amazing Alice in wonderland-bag with a poem on on side and a Cherisecat grin on the orther.

And a Sandman-shirt, with Dream on. She's painted it by hand!

I mean, look at it!

My gf:s dog liked it as well...

And a really cool (also handpainted) bookmark also Sandman- inspired, this time with Delirium.

And I got some tea anc candles wich I realize now I forgot to take a picture of... You'll have to imagen them, they are really pretty and the tea is really yummy!

And my absolute favorite:

A small handmade book from a fake tape from the band Lost souls from the book by the same name by Poppy C Bright. This was so crafty and sweet and made justice to the amazing book so well it almost made me cry...

And inside was some lyrics from the band.

I am so spoiled, this was amazing and really spot on.  Cheesy

I recived from Kookaloo_starr yesterday! It was a wonderful package, full of nice surprises!

I got two (2!) lovely record bowls! I have never seens something like this before, and when I unpacked them one of my roomies comes in and tells me he knows how to do them because it was shown in a Tv-show for kids when we were small... I have no idea who Pat Benatar is, but she looks like a nice gal and the bowls look splendid!

And I got a sexy PVC-bag made from ols pants! Perfect for going out! And all the old pockets are left, wich is perfect.

And a purple crocheted yarn holder so the dogs stops eating my yarn...  Wink

And some handmade soaps, that I'm quite sure smells of lavender, wich I love! And a cute windchime.

And a neat purple book, with handmade papers!  Grin

Look at the nice papers!

Thank you, Kookaloo_starr!

And I am soo spoiled! I squeeled as I opened it...
The lot:

Unusual is a green crazy quilt crochet holder. It's so pretty and I kinda hoped she woul make something in crazy quilt when I stalked her and saw she made those.... Sometimes wishes comes true.  Cheesy

Blue is for blue yarn, soft and not thoughly dyed so it'll be a real interesting fabric when I knit it!
And c is for chocolate! There were more, but it kinda disappered into my stomache like magic... yummy yum.

Flexible is a amazing crocheted bag made of paper yarn! I am sooo in love. Here's a action shot with it full of yarn.... Cheesy Love at first sight I tell you.

Local is for soft finnish wool made for felting! And she made a nice card too...

Squishy is a toy for my cat wich he loves. A few days from no, there won't be much left of it...
And sender's choice is a set of pretty pretty stitch markers that her sister made fo me. I sooooo needed stitch markers, and these were so pretty...

I sent to Heini who has recived so I can post pics for her here. Smiley

First of all:
C is for closure
The local bit is a needlecase made from a old case from a tailor that lived around here in the 1800:s. With a more modern touch...

Unusual is a shrunken towel that expands if you put it in hot water.
Squishy is a little velvet "friend" that is rellly nice to squeeze when your stressed or have chrocheted too hard.. It's filled with linen seed.

Blue is blue alpaca yarn that comes from my stash. It's actually a lot lighter then the pic shows.
Flexible. Wool is always a bit flexible fibre. Therefor: more yarn. Smiley

Sender's choice is a bag I made when we both discovered our mutual love for Twin Peaks. It's simply a Twin Peaks bag, with the text " the owls are not what they seems to be" on one side and the silouhette of an owl at the other.

10  Queer Fashion show dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by xray kitten on: July 07, 2008 02:36:51 AM
I was attending a queer fashion show a month ago, and I wanted to do something overly feminine, it should be so packed with female attributes it was almost creepy. Too little time put some limits to what I could do, but these are two of my models wearing dresses:

First out, the drunken cocktal-party-lady in a naildress. I got this package of false nails from a friend, and I sewn them on as decoration. It's kinda creepy if you look at it close.

I'm more happy with the concept of this dress then the actual apperance.

Them the second dress that was made of a sugarly sweet duvet cover ans lots and lots of tulle.
I really love this one, it creeps me out in it's sweetness, but I am SO happy with the fitting.

A big eloge to my wonderful models.
