11  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday(Saturday Edition) on: August 15, 2009 08:50:45 PM
I never get around to posting my stuff on the Fiber Friday thread but I did have stuff to share this week so here is my Fiber Friday contributions:

First is a merino/mulberry silk blend that I dyed/carded and spun. Very proud of this one

Next is a merino/alpaca blend I got at the Mass Wool fest and plyed  with gold thread. This stuff is amazing soft.
And a close up

Last is some really pretty Merino I also picked up at the wool fest. I only got two ounces and I wish I had gotten more because it spun up well and looks really pretty.

I didn't name any of them yet but the first one I might call Mermaid because it reminds me of one. I dont know about the other two yet.
I actually had one more but I forgot to take pictures of it so I will leave it till next Friday.  Smiley
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / TWO Happy little Mirrors to brighten my life (Edited with better pics) on: May 26, 2009 10:58:15 AM
When I get depressed I make really happy stuff apparently Huh This was an Ikea mirror, I always have a spare one lying around just in case and I was having a bad day so I decided to make a bright happy mirror. I panted it and cut out the sun and birds on the bottom. The flying doves and the flowers are giant hole punched, ( By the way, I am IN LOVE with giant hole punches, they are amazing) and modge podged the whole thing and vala! Happy little mirror. I'm going to make another one from my cousins baby. And the best part was it made me less depressed so YAY. Hope you like it. Sorry about the crummy Phone camera pictures.

I kind of want to decorate a bunch of these mirrors and hang them on one wall in my room. I think that would be cool. Thoughts/comments? Smiley

 I have continued on my mirror making quest. This one is really simple and took under an hour to make. The flowers, which are also Ikea were really hard to cut, I ruined a pair of scissors so if you make one, use cheaper fake flowers with less wire in the base. Here's the flower power mirror:

Just a few notes, they are just hot glued on(alot of glue) and the mirror was black when I bought it.

I'm addicted to mirror making.  Smiley
13  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / First stuff off the wheel and Mass sheep and wool fest on: May 25, 2009 10:12:08 AM
So I finally broke down and got a wheel. Its adopted from a women who had 3 and needed to get rid of one. Its a Kiwi and I loves it. So here is the first yarn off of it.

This is Kool aid dyed wool carded with gold angel hair and a litttle bit of orange sari silk.

I also had a chance to go to the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Fest this weekend. Here are just some fun pictures.

I havnt taken pictures of what I bought yet but when I do I will add pics.
14  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Babe Spinning wheels? on: February 08, 2009 09:59:28 AM
Hello everyone,

I want to get into spinning. I spin on my drop spindle and I love it so I want to move up but as always money is an issue. I have been looking at the Babe spinning wheels and I am wondering if anyone has one or knows anything about them? They are priced right and seem ok but I want to make sure before I buy. Any information is helpful. Thanks a bunch.  Smiley
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The Raven Mirror on: February 01, 2009 09:39:34 PM
I made this a few months ago but never got around to posting it but I am so proud of it. I think its one of the best things I made last year. The birds are stickers and all I really did was paint and stick them on but it just turned out so great.

It dosnt go with the colors of my room at all but I'm going to hang it up anyway.

16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A Happy Little Box of Hearts on: February 01, 2009 09:33:40 PM
So I saw something like this on a blog and copied it. Its heart cut outs from scrap book paper and framed. Its simple but I love it and it makes me happy so I needed to share. Enjoy. Smiley

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted slippers on: December 18, 2008 07:38:12 PM
I made these for a swap. The pattern is from a past issue of Craft magazine. Once I was done knitting the squares it took me and my mother about an hour and half to figure out how to fold them. But they turned out really well so I need to show them off.


If you want the pattern you can find it on the Craft magazine website
