1  California / California: North / Rock, Stitch, and Bitch on the penninsula? on: July 01, 2009 03:23:33 PM
Hey all,

Anyone interested in starting a stitchin' group on the peninsula?  I mostly do embroidery, but any kind of stitchin' is welcome.  I live in Redwood City and I am a special education teacher.  Therefore, I have summers off!  Yay!  But, there is only so much soap operas and solo needlework you can take until you could really use someone to chat with about music, politics, books, and any other interesting topics out there!   Wink

If you're interested...let me know!  Thanks!
2  California / California: North / San Francisco Bay Area on: December 19, 2008 09:24:41 AM
Hey Everyone!  I recently moved to the area from Chicago.  I have been a member of Craftster for awhile, but post mostly in the embroidery threads.

Anywho, I hope this isn't a silly question, but does anyone have some recommendations for nifty,thrifty, crafty stores in the Bay Area?  I'm having some difficulty finding neat-o stores in the area.  Thank you for any help you can offer!  I really appreciate!   Smiley
3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Western Work Shirt on: October 25, 2008 11:15:17 AM
Hey all!  Well, once again I made something for my husband.  A department store here in the San Francisco Bay area is going out of business (it totally stinks) and they had a ton of Dickies work clothes on sale for like 40% off (which is totally awesome)!  So, I decided to pick one up and try out the Jenny's carbon transfer paper.  Let me tell ya, it's awesome!  I've never used it before until now, and I'm totally hooked!  I highly recommend it.  Anywho, enough of my babbling.  Here's a pic.  Thanks for looking!

Even kitties need to take a rest from all this crafting!

Don't worry, no kitties were harmed in the making of this picture.  This is my little guy, Neko.  Hope this made you all smile...at least a little!   Cheesy
5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Artist Series Gift on: October 08, 2008 06:37:30 PM
Hi Everyone!  Here are some pictures of a framed embroidery project I did for my aunt.  I know it's early, but when you're makin' all DIY, embroidery X-Mas gifts for your family, ya have to start early!   Tongue 

I used cross-stitch fabric and the Kurt Halsey patterns.  Then I cut it to fit a small, 5"7" frame.  Comments and suggestions are always welcome!  Sorry if the pics are kinda blurry.  Thanks for looking!

Hi Everyone,

It's been awhile since I've posted anything on here, and I'm having some trouble uploading an avitar for myself...if anyone has any hints they can give me, I'd appreciate it?!  Thanks!

Anyway, here is some pics of an apron I did for my husband.  I used a bunch of different patterns including the tattoo, mode mod, and the artist Moi patterns.  It says, "Cookin' with gas" on it.

Comments and suggestions welcome!  Thank you SO much for looking!

This is a pic of the whole apron.

This is a close up of the top part.

This is the bottom.

One more of the whole thing.  **Oh and as an added bonus, you can kind of see the rock n' roll quilt my mother-in-law made with some of our old rock t-shirts in this picture!  It's pretty awesome!

Thank you again for looking!
