1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Needle Roll for My Best Friend on: September 30, 2008 07:34:16 PM
My best friend knits and crochets and loves all things halloween, so what better to make her than a halloween-y needle roll!?!

I got all the fabric for 30% off at Jo-Anns

The thread is color variegating!

Close up of the fabric

She adored it, I was so happy with her reaction, it was like getting a present myself!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My New Home on: August 10, 2008 03:00:45 PM
I recently moved back in with my parents while I go through a divorce. We decided to make the room nice since I might be here a while Tongue I don't have a before picture, but .. well it was bad... really bad.

This is my new futon bed, and the cabinet that holds all my movies, and books. All the walls are a light pink color with the exception of the wall my bed is on which is white because my mother thinks the pink would have been to over powering...

This is the other side of my bed. The large grey drawers holds all my yarn, and the credenza that my tv (John and Kate +Eight was on) is on holds all my fabric (stuffed to the gills!!). This is the best picture I have of the floor. We tore out all of the carpet and painted it a putty sort of color. Then taped out large squares and then painted it again brown. Pulled up the tape and a few coats of sealer later, and I'm loving my floors! P.S. My dog Nimber wanted his picture taken, he's so spoiled.

This is my desk

And this is a close up of my desk.

A clear shot of my credenza.

The top of my credenza. Basically my perfume and sprays, my antique marbles in a vase, my various sunglasses, and a candy dish filled with semi-precious stones. A plant on top of my jewelery box, and a mug full of sand dollars

The shelf above my credenza. The poodles we're given to me by my great grandma after she passed away. They are a prized possession.

This is the top of my yarn storage drawers. The Buddah came from my late grandfather after he passed away. It was the only thing I was animate about having.

And last but not least my reading area! I love that green lamp that came from my grandma, but it needs some electrical work.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Picture Frame on: May 25, 2008 08:51:27 PM
I got this picture frame a long time ago at a yard sale and just decided to decorate it when I saw Joann's had their buttons 50% off.

4  COOKING / Dessert / The Hula Dancer Cake (HUGE PICS) on: April 22, 2008 04:36:51 PM
I had so much fun making this for my luau I hosted for my friends graduation party. I really got a kick out of it, so I'm going to share it with you as well. The cake itself is triple chocolate with cream cheese frosting. The doll came from my friend's husband's magic shop. On to the pictures!

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My Second Completed Quilt on: December 20, 2007 02:49:06 PM
The only thing I added that wasn't on the 'directions' were the ribbon tags. This was one of those fat quarter kits. I think it's cute! It's going to my little nephew Vinny.

PLEASE DISREGARD THE COMPLETE MESS OF MY HOUSE IN THE BACKGROUND. As I'm sure happens in a lot of Craftster homes, as soon as December hits its all craft and minimal clean!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Completed Quilt *image obese* on: December 20, 2007 09:27:02 AM
This is a Christmas present for my mom. She loooooves her doggies and so when I saw this set of fat quarters I knew I had to make something for her with them. So the quilt is the first one I've ever completed. The other one I started.. well it didn't really come together. Anywho this one came together great!!!
On the middle panel I add a little decoration with embroidery thread to one of each of the types of dogs. I think it adds a cute lil something. I really hope she likes it!!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a beanie and matching scarf! on: December 11, 2007 08:57:12 PM
Okay this is not genius sewing, but I'm just learning here people!!!

I dont know that you can really tell but this is black fabric with embossed spider webs on it.

On to the pictures!

This is a picture of the back of my head to show the seams

And here it is with the matching scarf! I used regular old black fleece to accompany on the scarf. These are for a guy, so black on black will be more than acceptable. Sorry for the super blurry pic, my hubby does not know how to take a decent picture.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My First Pillow *image obese* on: November 24, 2007 10:32:17 PM
Here is a pillow that I made tonight. I'm really getting the hang of this sewing business!

Tons o pictures time!

This is what the back looks like

And this is my new pillow on the couch!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scoodies Galore! *Image Obese* on: November 20, 2007 05:58:28 PM
I'm so excited as these are some of my very first sewing projects! They are scoodies, thank you sooooo much, [url http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007_09_01_archive.html]Just Tutes [/url http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007_09_01_archive.html]for the guide.

Blue Argyle fleece outside and light blue floofy material on the inside

Soccer ball fleece on the outside and black fleece on the inside

Black fleece on the outside and racing flag pattern fleece on the inside

The only change I made is when I connected the scarf portion I cornered it off. I have no idea if there is any sort of technical term for that, I just thought it looked better.
