Your wedding broke my heart

My CAT is my Best Friend

obviously my camera still stinks, because it couldn't be that I took bad pictures.

I hit the mother lode between yesterday and today:

Doing embroidery turns me on.

I wish I had friends and on the back... to chill, talk, shop believe, want... live with

im afrade of homeless people

I live in my bra on the back I wear one all the time and I love it. No bra-burning here!

Every time I meet an obnoxiously arrogant man, I hope he will fall for me. Just so that I can turn him down. . .(of course it has never happened)

I'm addicted to myspace a place for whores

I am so two-faced.

I apologize for the somewhat poor photo quality, the camera is getting pretty old.

3  Puppy Pop Art in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by red_molly on: March 11, 2008 02:27:03 PM
I have been needing some artwork for my guest bedroom when I was inspired by an article in Martha Stewart's magazine about her show. A fabric designer, whose name unfortunately escapes me, covered a canvas in fabric and then painted a bird over it in acrylic paint. I really liked the color combinations and decided to try it using one of my favorite subjects, my dog.

The project was very easy, the only problem I experienced was a shedding foam brush pooping on the canvas as I covered it with layers of decoupage glue.

Here are my two pieces:

the bubbles are not as bad as this picture implies

and together

I really enjoyed making these and look forward to doing some more. Any questions, let me know!

I am thinking she used something like one of these. . .

and used each hole to anchor a different spike and then ran the thread through some of those holes to anchor the ring portion.

You can find those pieces in the findings section of fire mountain gems.

edited to say it looks like she (or the maker) put several spikes in each hole to fill out the ring

Everybody has gotten some really cool stuff! That of course includes me! Finally the camera batteries have recharged and so have my internal batteries, so without further ado. . .

my wonderful items from Redheadedali

magnets with great quotes from Dr. Who

a Dr. Who purse that sparkles! I will definitely use this when going to see Sci-Fi movies with my honey. The glitter is so sparkly, unfortunately I couldn't capture that in my photos no matter how hard I tried because it hasn't been sunny here for a while (until right this very instant (of course))

a Tardis inspired bracelet---I really love this---I have worn it a few times and gotten compliments on it from coworkers.

redheadedali received my package, and she said she liked it, which made me really happy because I was nervous. Here are the pictures I took of the items I sent her way.

a Cassandra memo board, this took a while to do as I am not a great painter the fabric covering it is a scratchy polyester, which I thoguht was great for skin that needed constant moisturizing

pins that can be worn or used on the memo board

"are you my Mummy?" bear I enjoyed those episodes quite a bit


a geod necklace because Dr. Who rocks!

Like I said I was really  nervous, and I am really glad Ali liked my items. I took a slightly different approach as both Redheadedali and I have mostly seen the more recent shows, and I like the bad guys/aliens.

7  It's Calorimetry Calamity in Knitalongs by red_molly on: January 16, 2007 09:41:07 AM
I had to see what all the fuss was about this pattern, so I knit one. Then another one. I am even thinking about knitting a few more for the ladies in my family. Here are my two. I love the buttons on the green one, I think it is my favorite of the 2.

Sorry the one pic is so dark---I'm not going outside in the snow for a better pic

8  Bohemian Wrapsody & they like me, they really like me! in Knitting: Completed Projects by red_molly on: January 16, 2007 09:21:58 AM
Recently, my husband and I moved to Austin Texas. Aside from the snow/freezing rain right now, we love it. One of the greatest things about the move is that I am so close to such incredible creativity and crafty business people such as the ladies of the Austin Craft Mafia.

I belong to the Austin SnB, although work has kept me from attending a meeting, and as such received a great offer in my email in box. Vickie Howell of Knitty Gritty and Stylelicious and several books has a new yarn collection coming out and needed people to knit sample items for her collection. I jumped at the chance and as a result can now say, "I have worked for yarn." Vickie is working with SouthWest Trading Company and has some incredible colors of yarn coming out.

I knit one of Vickie's patterns using her "Rock" yarn. It is a really cool shade of green and is very soft and easy to work with. Please know that I am not getting anything by endorsing the yarn. I just wanted to share the work I did as it was my first  attempt with a lace pattern and it came out well. And I am excited about the opportunity I got to take advantage of.

Enough with the talk, here are some pictures. . .

the wrap is just over 5 feet long and 2 feet wide. Even though it is a lace pattern, it will definitely keep you warm. The color of the yarn is closest to the picture where it is folded and in the window.

I just wanted to add some cool news. I sent the wrap and as in the agreement, I was asked to pick out the yarn I wanted to receive as payment. Best yet, they offered me the chance to do another small project for them. This is so cool. I am expanding my skills and getting free yarn for it. This just goes to show, join your local SnB, you never know the opportunities that will come from it.
