3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt for my best friend's birthday on: May 25, 2005 07:04:34 PM
This is my first quilt that I'll be doing with triangles and not just sqaures. It's for my best friend, and it has fabrics with sheet music, instrucments, moons and stars and paw prints. Each thing represents an experience from our childhood!

Toby wasn't sure this was it, so he had me try again


4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / I made a t-shirt! MY FIRST! Oh.. and postcards. on: March 30, 2005 06:58:34 PM
A continued venture into the Japanese Print Goco;

I got some blank postcards from the craft store on the way home, and a few t-shirts. Jesse requested blue ink on the postcards, and I already had planned to have his t-shirts match his website.



I'm fairly please considering it's my first time trying to print on cloth. I have lots of inprovments in mind for next time, the print was to dark near the bottom and it didn't burn the screen correctly, but it lends itself to a nice rustic feel, hah.

Got the husband to wear it even,
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Print Gocco - My Test Project - Success! on: March 30, 2005 10:34:10 AM
A few months ago I had been reading about this really cool Japanese toy called a "Print Goco" which is basically a proffesional screen printing kit for anyone and everyone. I saw a few threads here about it. My mom sent me $200 for my birthday/xmas so I got the Print Goko, the book, the print stamping kit and some extra cloth printing inks.

Tonight was the first time I actually tried using it. I was going to make some t-shirts for Jesse or a cool business card for his website for when we went to Australia, but he never got around to giving me the "content" ehem...

So tonight I tested it on a fun little geeky birthday card for him (His b-day is april 19th btw if your wondering, hehehe).

So here are the fruits of my labor;

http://www.mediadiva.net/blog/archives/printGoko_jesseBDAY.jpg - bigger view

I was extremly impressed by the prints. It was a horrible hand drawn sketching and it's amazing how much each print looks hand drawn but much better then my drawing (cleaner because of the inks). The original is the all black one, it's messed up because it got some ink on it. It was hand drawn with a pen the kit comes with.

In the bottom left of the photo is the printing mechanism, and the master is up agains the top of it. To the top right is the "lamp" thing which you use to expose and create the "master" from.

I purchased all of the supplies from Think Ink (http://www.thinkink.net/) and was VERY happy with their customer service. It wasn't able to ship right away and so they actual waited a few days once they got it before it was mailed so it would arrive right when I got back from XMAS in VA and not sit outside in the cold on our front porch.

So being so pleased, I just ordered more bulbs and masters and some yellow cloth ink.

If you have ever wanted to make your own business cards and be in complete control of the design, this looks like it would be FAB. I have a project in mind for work that I think will be lots of fun, I'm all about the cloth printing kit!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / My first finished quilt block - Flannel 9 patch - UPDATED I finished the whole on: January 13, 2005 08:08:26 AM
I'm such an overly excited NERD!!

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Walmart Sewing Desk - So far so good on: January 10, 2005 09:57:06 AM
Normally I dislike walmart. I have had furniture I purchased from there fall apart and I think they abuse there brand and often overcharge for some things.

With that said, I could find NO OTHER STORE not on the internet to go see and puchase a sewing/craft desk for a decent price.. so for $94 i got their cute sewing desk which I have to say is pretty niffty, and extrmely solid/heavy.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Redwork - how freakin cool on: January 07, 2005 01:12:30 PM
So i as showing someone some embroidery (Jenny kits) that had been done in one color and she remkared how it reminded her off redwork.. so I looked it up! WOWO! I Wonder if jenny is influence by redwork when she started her designs?

Source of current stuff:

It has lots of historical interest but from a style point of view I just adore the simplicity of it.


Amazon.com Books

I have no idea why the first link is messing up..

Top of quilt, you can see the basting pins still on the sides, but the whole thing is quilted and completed (minus binding)

Here is the back, I just quilted up by stitching in the ditch on the rows of completed sqaures.. so as not to call attention to my sqaures that wern't exactly lined up Smiley hehe
