11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Titanic Morse Code Necklaces on: July 26, 2006 09:36:59 AM
My sister did a personal Titanic swap with a couple girls from here. For it, I made her some Necklaces.
It reads as follows:
CQD (first established distress signal)
MGY (Titanic's call letters)
SOS (distress signal that replaced the first).

12  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Four Random Dog Shirts on: July 25, 2006 09:31:13 AM
This was my first attempt at doggie dress/shirt making. It came out a little tight on her (she has a big rib case) but overall it was a good start in making dog clothes. the ribbon around the neck is individual pieces. A 'v' of plaid fabric was added in the back with a ribbon at the bottom to give more room to the shoulders.

This was crocheted kind of like an overall dress. There is a bib in the back and the yarn criss crosses on the chest.

This is a crocheted dress for a coworker's dog.

And finally, this was a last minute birthday tee for the same coworker's dog.

Created one day out of boredom. It can be worn either way. Grommets in front with lace make it slightly adjustable.

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Pleather and Lace Star Dress on: July 25, 2006 09:22:24 AM
This is a dog shirt that my loverly dog, Clover, is modeling for you. I penciled in the stars and followed them on my sewing machine, which was less difficult than I thought. Then I added zigzags coming from the tips of each point for added effect. The star "ribbon" are just shoe laces I found at the 99cent store and the lace is some from my mom's old stash. The fabric I just got second hand.

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / pendant blanks...can't find! on: July 13, 2006 02:07:51 AM
I'm looking for pendant blank thingies in unfinished clay or porcelin. Like cameos without the face imprinted/raised. Completely flat. I don't want wood, as they need weight. I can't find them anywhere. Anyone know what they're called? I'm sure there is a certain term I am lacking in use of to find these. Any help would be much appreciated!
16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Animal Shelter Dog Paintings on: July 04, 2006 03:38:02 AM
These are paintings I've done of two dogs that came through my work. I have signed and dated each painting on the back, written the name of the dog, and wrote the date the dog was rescued or put to sleep. (Since I've only painted two, I haven't painted any that have gotten adopted yet.)

This first one is of Patron, a pit bull. I absolutely adored him. He had a 1 on one hip and a 7 on the other. Very neat. He was white and brown. He did not make it.

The photograph:

The painting:

This is Valentine, a staffordshire terrier. She was so neat and she loved to play with my dog, as she did on many occassions. She was adopted and returned after three days, was with us another month, and was sent to the SPCA, where she was adopted one week later.

(No photograph). The painting:

I did a painting for a Relay for Life basket to be auctioned off. Of course I painted my dog (she did get adopted from my work, so she is an animal shelter dog!) using an old relay for life shirt design. (See avatar for how my dog looks.) This was not painted using any specific photograph as a set up.

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 3 Stash Busting Crocheted Blankets (6 pix)...made in 3 weeks on: July 04, 2006 03:17:40 AM
For a while I have known that I have had way too much yarn. So, in an effort to shrink my yarn to a more manageable size, I have started crocheting blankets. In my mother's words, "You have OCD. You'll make a ton then never make them again."

To keep size in perspective, my bed is a full.

This is my first blanket that I've made (I'm not counting a bunch of scarves my sister and I crocheted then crocheted together because this was intentially made as a blanket). I made panels and crocheted them together. This used up all but a couple of small balls of my red yarn. It took me from one Thursday to the next to crochet it.

View from the side:

View from the bottom:

This is the blue blanket that I made using the panel method as well. This seems to be everyone's favorite. Most of my blue yarn is now in this blanket. This took me from one Sunday to the next.

View from bottom:

And finally, my black and off-white blanket. It was meant to get rid of my off-white stash, but then I thought black would look nice with it. I had to buy more black yarn to finish the blanket. I have plenty of off-white yarn to pair with another color for another blanket. This one took me four days to make. I finished it yesterday in the wee hours of the morning.

People ask me if I'm selling them, but as you know, very few people appreciate how much time is spent crocheting and knitting, so I doubt I'd ever feel I got paid enough. Have any of you ever sold a blanket and for what price?
