1  Mistress Ayane Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by Clinomaniac on: August 29, 2011 04:39:08 AM
Looks like an easy project, right? That's what I thought when I started. I got the idea from padfoot's Doctor Who chibi embroideries (thanks padfoot! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381619.0) and decided to do a chibi version of my boyfriend's favourite comic book character with an image I found on deviantart. On my first go I managed to mess up the crayon tinting; on my second go I finished nearly all of the stitching, only to discover that I had reversed the image, so the scar was on the wrong side of her face, and since my boyfriend is kind of a purist (read: anally retentive) about these things, I scrapped it and started again for the third time, and thankfully managed to finish the damn thing, nearly three months after I first began. Most annoying project ever!

2  Help with unfinished b&w project in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by Clinomaniac on: August 11, 2011 10:32:28 PM
I've just finished embroidering this picture of my bf's favourite comic book character, and I'm not sure how to finish it off. Her hair, outfit and sunglasses are supposed to be black, and I was planning to colour those bits in with black fabric marker once the stitching was done, but it has now occurred to me that if I do that, the black will be really dark and she might just end up looking like one big black blob. I thought then that I could paint it in with, I don't know, grey fabric paint, but I tried it on a piece of scrap fabric and the paint runs really badly and looks just generally crappy. My next option might be crayon tinting, but I don't know how that will work on an already stitched picture. Also, the sunglasses are tiny, and I don't know if I can colour them in without getting black crayon outside the lines. Are there any other options for colouring this thing in?

3  Stitched Nicknames in Needlework: Completed Projects by Clinomaniac on: June 07, 2011 11:41:51 PM
My nickname  for my bf is "pervert" and his for me is "tease," so I stitched them up, framed them, and now they're sitting on our bedside tables.

4  Spaced Out Rocket Singlet in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Clinomaniac on: March 21, 2011 02:35:43 AM
Saturday was a really crappy day for me. I was all stressed about the amount of uni work I have to do, and how it means I never get to do anything fun anymore. Eventually my boyfriend convinced me that the best thing I could possibly do was to put my uni stuff aside and watch the godawful 80s movie King Solomon's Mines with him. While we watched what is possibly the lamest Indiana Jones ripoff in the history of the world, I stitched up this cheapo singlet from Kmart. It's the first item of clothing I've ever stitched, and the first time I've ever used stabilizer. Bits of it are a bit dodgy, but I don't care. I think it's really cute, and along with the movie and my awesome boyfriend, cheered me up no end Smiley

5  Little Devil on Calico Bag in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Clinomaniac on: February 20, 2011 03:34:07 AM
This is my take on Lisa Petrucci's little devil. I managed to bugger it up a little, but I don't think it's noticeable Smiley

I found this calico lunchbag, and thought it needed some sporky cuteness. Love this Urban Threads pattern!

8  Need help with couch colour, and colour-blind boyfriend is no help. in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by Clinomaniac on: October 18, 2010 05:04:36 PM
My boyfriend and I have just moved in together, and between us we've got a decent amount of furniture, mostly timber or pine. What we don't have is a decent couch, and we've been out looking to buy one, but the problem is that interior decorating is not my forte, and he's colourblind. I'm hoping you guys with your mad decorating skills will be able to help us out with some colour ideas for the couch.

As you can see from the dodgy photos below, our walls are off-white, the blinds are off-white, the carpet is a beigey-grey kind of colour that we're going to cover up with a rug or two, and our dining table and tv unit are fairly plain wood. I don't particularly want an off-white couch, mainly because I'm a grub and will spill something on it as soon as I sit on it.

I've just used the word "couch" so many times that it's lost all meaning for me Smiley

9  Random Cross-Stitches: Death Note, Mario, and A Girl Robot in Needlework: Completed Projects by Clinomaniac on: June 21, 2009 02:36:39 AM
Made this one for the friend who introduced me to Death Note, whose name conveniently starts with L:

And this one for the friend who is obsessed with the mushrooms from Mario - I didn't get time to iron it before I gave it to her, so this photo is going to drive me crazy:

This one is from the Manga Cross-Stitches book:
