1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yin Yang Skully Sweater on: January 15, 2009 10:47:39 AM
Based on the Skully Sweater from "Stitch N Bitch". Started Oct '04, first completed and shunned Dec '04, neglected until this past December '08 when I attempted to complete it to the satisfaction of the intended recipient.  Here it is.  His manners have certainly improved over the years ('Thank you Mom').  I'm so proud of him, even if he'll never wear it again.........

That expression.....  Dismay?  A bad cold?  Is he about to cry tears of joy? I'd rather not think about it.....

He does need the immediate care of a qualified hair professional.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Braiding Apron on: January 01, 2009 01:30:35 PM
An apron for holding the supplies needed to braid a horse for show.  It was made from 2 or 3 pairs of worn out blue jeans.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Broken Craftster Crafts Cast on: October 21, 2007 07:57:19 AM
Or, the hair of the horse that 'bit' me (I've been thinking about decoupaging some of that on my cast too).

I broke my dominant arm (my left) in a fall from my horse a little over 4 weeks ago.  Last week, I got a new cast so I decoupaged George Stubbs' drawing of a horse skeleton.  This is not a completed project as I plan to ad more images.  I've also had my husband write a Winston Churchil quote on the side but we've got to work on that - it isn't very legible as fiberglass is difficult to write on.  I may paint over it with acrylic and have him rewrite the quote ("No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle").

Any ideas for more images to add?  I've been looking for some good tattoo images but haven't found anything that excites me.  I was thinking it would be cool to add jewels and such but I 'm worried they would get caught on stuff.

6  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Hidden LYS in LEOMINSTER!!! on: March 30, 2007 11:03:35 AM
I didn't know it existed until I saw the ad on the menu of a local Chinese restaurant.  But, there's a yarn shop in Leominster,MA that has been there for two years and nobody knows about it.

The woman who runs it runs it out of an addition on her home in a residential neighborhood near the hospital - the tricky part is finding it.  If you bear right onto Washington Street(Google will never tell you this, it took me three tries to find the place) at the intersection near the hospital (assuming you're coming off of rt 2) it will be your very first and very quick left.

She has ALL kinds of needles, including Addi Turbos and a good variety of yarn.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Purple and Green Glittens on: March 07, 2007 07:28:04 PM
Glittens that I started two years ago that I'm just finishing today.  Those are some UGLY thumbs, so, maybe count that as not quite finished.

I made them that ugly ALL by myself, yup, no pattern to blame.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Panicked Penguin Messenger Bag on: February 25, 2007 02:07:28 PM
This penguin is freaking because he figures he's either a roadrunner with stumpy legs or a penguin without an iceberg Smiley
This bag is 16"X11"X7".  My hope is that it will hold all my essentials where I can find them and some knitting projects too (I usually carry two bags which is one bag too many).
The fabric was given to me by a friend who was cleaning out her stash, the suede trim came from an old suede shirt I found at Goodwill and the reflective piping came from Seattle Fabrics.com.

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Felted Sweater Quilt on: February 19, 2007 12:46:11 PM
I just finished piecing a quilt made of old sweaters I picked up from
Goodwill.  Many were motheaten so I got them for free.  I felted them
and cut them up in decending sized squares doing my best to
maximize the use I got from each sweater.

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Fashion Exhibit at MFA Boston on: February 17, 2007 03:36:08 PM
Has anyone been?  I didn't find it too awe-inspiring but I did get a charge out of some of the "craftster" type outfits.

There was a vest made from the tops of old leather sandals, a vest of bottle caps and a vest of old "pearl" necklaces (with strategically placed rings at the elbows and wrists, and a support strap at the waist to shape and contour the whole affair).  There was a cute little sleeveless dress that was covered in metal studs and several other pieces from recycled/repurposed fabrics.

Is the difference between craft and "fine art" the amount of public notice one receives?
