1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First quilt! on: July 11, 2012 05:55:02 PM
I finally got some pictures of my first completed quilt!  I used this tutorial from crazy mom quilts (one of my favorite blogs!).  I only have two pictures and none of the backing unfortunately, but I'm very happy with how it turned out (except the binding...I tried to do it all on the machine because I'm lazy...it's less than perfect).

Now I'm hard at work on my second!  Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Another Stashbuster! on: July 09, 2012 06:12:39 PM
I used 5 hexagon motifs from Beyond the Square: 30, 35, 37, 48, and 50. Ive slightly modified some of these, to make them closer to the same size.  I think all 5 different hexagons are shown in the last picture.  The border is two rows of hdc.

I used entirely stash yarn (mostly Impeccable with some Patons) and only purchased 1 skein to finish the borders.

66 completed hexagons and 11 finished skeins!  It's about as big as my full size mattress!  Smiley Smiley

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chalk Bags on: March 30, 2011 12:34:02 PM
I imagine these would go here as they were first knit and then felted...

My friend and I go bouldering about 4 times a week and neither of us wanted to shell out the money for a chalk bag.  I found a pattern online and then tweaked it and tweaked it until I was happy.

Here are the results:

They work great and we get loads of compliments on them at the gym!

Thanks for looking  Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / lil flower afghan on: January 11, 2011 06:28:02 PM
This is my take on the Lil Monkey Afghan in the Happy Hooker.  It's made for my step sister who is maybe halfway through her pregnancy, in the colors she is using to decorate the little girl's room.  The flower squares are an edited version of motif #114 in Beyond the Square.

Pics!  Smiley

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / some finished hoops.. on: December 19, 2010 06:20:41 PM
I made these two hoops as Christmas presents.  Both are Urban Threads patterns which I love!

Maneki Neko for my Grandfather and his wife on (or in..? neither really make sense) a 7" hoop wrapped in red and white ribbon.  Backstitch, satin stitch and french knots were all used.
The fabric is linen from the remnants bin at Joann's and sadly, this was the last of it  Sad.

Autumn Tree from my Grandmother in a 6" hoop wrapped in red and white ribbon.  This piece is all backstitch and the fabric was a fat quarter.

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / trex! on: December 19, 2010 06:15:56 PM
I just finished another Delicious Crochet pattern!

This one was a little more difficult that the lion, and (although I love the finished project) the pattern was not my favorite.    Lips sealed

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
7  COOKING / Dessert / rudolph cupcakes! on: December 10, 2010 06:42:36 PM
my family christmas party is tomorrow so i just spent the day making these in preparation!

reindeer cupcakes!

the antlers are broken pretzel wheels, gel icing for the eyes and nose, and christmas colored candy corn for a tail!

this one turned out more dog-looking than reindeer but i decided not to fix it..

thanks for looking!  Smiley

9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / First tries spinning! (img heavy) on: November 30, 2010 02:42:49 PM
so I completed my first dying projects last week, now it's time to show what became of them.

i'm not very impressed with my first attempts, but i like my second and third. the problem is i didn't really spin enough yarn to make anything! so now i don't know what to do with it..haha

onto pics!

this was my first attempt. i don't have a better picture of it, but it was realllly not great Smiley i like the colors though!

my third batch of dyed roving:

(i don't know how you guys twist them into those nice little braids, so i just made mine into a ball)

second and third attempts (the roving above is the bottom skein):

the colors on these really are this bright. i have no idea how i made that happen though!

thanks for looking!  Cheesy
10  COOKING / Dessert / Turkey Cupcakes!! on: November 24, 2010 04:13:13 PM
My mom and I just got finished making these for dessert tomorrow!

They are super adorable.

I used box mix to make the cupcakes because honestly, I have no idea how to make a cake from scratch!

They are fairly simple to make, but I posted some tips on my blog if y'all want any help!

Thanks for looking and have a happy thanksgiving!  Smiley Smiley
