1  A soap mold I made in my kitchen! No countertops were harmed! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: November 03, 2009 12:57:00 PM
It's not the prettiest of carpentry there's ever been built but by golly I did it!  It didn't take me very long and I did it this morning.  Soap making will happen tomorrow morning once the kids are in school!  I can't wait!  I hope that it's not too long and I'm interested to see if it's deep enough.  But it's probably the first wood project I've completed since I was thrown out of my woodworking class by Mr Wheeler.(I was 14....I'm now 40  Tongue )

It's still sitting on the side in my kitchen and I keep looking at it with pride!!  Yay me!  Grin

2  A hum haw snowflake..... in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: November 01, 2009 07:59:24 PM

I just recently bought 100 (now 99!) brooch backs and decided to make a brooch with a snowflake on since I work at Bronners (the largest Christmas store in the world!)  I put peoples names and dates and whatever on ornaments and I must say, as jobs go, it's pretty damn good!
Well, Leah falls down to earth when the only person that comments is the one chick with Aspergers who can't help herself and she says 'Whoa, what a huge pin!  Could it get any bigger?'!!   Embarrassed  Ummmm, thanks.....

So, here's the huge pin/brooch.  And my brooch in action with the big guy!
The beginning....lots of swearing as metallic thread is a bitch

And me with the big guy!

And if I'm sideways then I apologise......you'll just have to use your imagination as it comes out fine on flickr.  Oh and please check out my sexy red vest! Tongue

3  made a button mirror cover..... in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: February 20, 2009 07:43:17 PM
I think it looks better from far away!!  I used dark grey fleece and black thread.  I also used a bit of my printed ribbon to put on the front. I did one and wasn't happy so this is try number 3.  The fleece feels a bit soft.....I would have preferred grey felt but I don't know where to find it.  Army blankets would be superb but I don't have a lead.

4  For F*ck's sake....SMILE! (nsfw and kiddies that can read!) in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: November 10, 2008 07:58:12 AM
I just finished this last night.  My last foray into waste canvas until I go to the craft store!!

I soooo want to send this to a friend of mine in England.  She's such a lovely person but always looks like someone has just swiped her ice-cream!  Or I'd like to use this tote while I shop at the grocery store and let a particularly grumpy cashier admire and maybe she'd crack a smile!

But, this is my second attempt at using waste canvas and I've noticed that I will have to wash this finished piece as there seems to be some sort of water mark.  Anyone else experience this?

So, without further ado.....  (little warning first so I don't offend anyone)

5  A tote with 'tude! (somewhat image heavy and nsfw/kids) in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: October 29, 2008 01:33:13 PM
This is my first time working with waste canvas and I was surprised at how easy it was to work with!  But first the warning......

The finished tote!

That is beautiful.  Great job, and choice of subject. 

Would you be willing to post a close up photo so it is possible to see your stitches?

thank you!

And sure, I'll show you my stitches!

7  Naughty words! in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: October 15, 2008 08:28:22 PM
I've always chuckled at all the naughty swear words and sayings that I've seen in cross stitch and I managed to finish some words of my own tonight. (sheesh, I'm on a roll!!!)  I still have to embelish and finish it off so I guess you could say it's not finished but I was excited about finishing the wording and would like ideas about how I could possibly finish it off...

I'm thinking metallic swirls but I'm really open to any suggestions.....

I hope that's a big enough gap so that someone is not viewing that shouldn't!!  (sheesh it's only words but you never know!!)

8  Dandelion....matted and framed... in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: October 15, 2008 07:36:26 PM
I actually finished something and have hung it up in my own home! (after years of giving gifts that I've stitched I now have a grand total of 2 finished pieces in my house!!  Yay, go me!)

After looking at Brook Owens fifties lady this feels somewhat mundane and staid!! (love that embroidery!!!)

But, hey ho, here it is!!

I painted the frame myself and I used 32 count linen which made me eyes go buggy sometimes.....especially at night!!

9  Mature subject/nsfw my new cross stitch pattern (male nudity) in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: April 25, 2008 07:36:13 PM
I haven't stitched this yet but I plan to start this weekend.  A friend of mine who's pregnant asked me to come up with a cross stitch pattern that had a penis in.  So, I obliged....how can I turn down a prego lady??!!  Anyway, it cracked me up as she told me that she takes this project everywhere with her and will quite happily stitch anywhere....doctors office too!

I can't wait to start stitching him!!  Grin

And maybe I'll start on boobies next!! Cheesy

So, anyway....enough talking and blah, blah, blah...

10  This is the first project I've ever uploaded to Craftster!! Audrey! in Needlework: Completed Projects by leahwoo9 on: April 21, 2008 07:39:52 PM
It seems like I've been coming to Craftster for ever but I've never actually started a thread!!  I've added my voice here and there but only sparingly. 

So, here goes....

I just finished this cross stitch this evening.  I'm actually making this for myself and not giving it away!!  I've stitched this several times and always given it away!!  It only took me a few days to complete and I'm looking forward to getting to the framing store as it's going on my wall.  I started it late one night thinking I was using black thread but it is in fact very dark blue.  Oh well....  I'll probably go very classic black frame with plain white matt but if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them!!

Anyway, here she is.....Audrey Hepburn.  Sorry about the crappy lighting....it's dark and I can't be bothered to wait until morning!  Plus my kids will be up and make this near impossible!!
