Pretty! I was going to ask what you're planning to do with them. Was it easy to glue the tinsel on?

She's gorgeous! I'm a redhead but don't look like that :-( Is a very pretty dress and I like the lace.

Really? It's the first one I've ever done- a combination of staples and thumbtacks, and I used an awl to make holes to sew the buttons on through the whole lot. I need to wrap it up yet- it's hidden in my wardrobe.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Another noticeboard- retro style on: December 13, 2010 12:08:07 PM
I made this today for my mums' Christmas present. I found the green velvet in a charity shop for 2, and we both wanted it. My mum wanted some to recover the dining chair cushions with, but there wasn't enough material. She also said that she wanted a noticeboard for Christmas, 'like those with ribbons across it'.

While we were clearing out some of my things for charity I remembered I had a cork noticeboard, which I'd painted bright pink then decided I didn't like it. I covered it in wadding and fabric using staples and thumbtacks, after lots of fiddling and realising the wadding was too thick so I halved it.

I couldn't decide on a suitable fabric other than this, and didn't have enough of any ribbon she'd like apart from this, so I put them together. I added some vintage buttons which are a combination of my nanna's button collection and whatever I've salvaged. Since I took the photos I've also added some hooks and twisted green ribbon for it to hang from.

I quite like it, though I sacrificed being able to pin things to it for the look of the squishy padding.

5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber..Sunday? from a newbie spinner! on: December 12, 2010 12:11:59 PM
I'm not sure about the green- they looked wine red and dark green on the website (just computerised squares of colour). Depends on the light I think.

banaleg I'm in the UK so I don't know about prices where you are but I got my drop spindle for about 8 on ebay, and 100g of BFL wool for 2.50- don't know how much I've spun but a quarter of the bag is the raspberry stuff. I spin it, then dunk in water, wring out and wind it around a mug stand then leave to dry. Et voila!

I'm still a beginner-spinner, and have yet to brave double-ply.

This is currently drying- the pink is actually darker in person. The pink and green are both BFL from worldofwool, and the multi-coloured one is made of scraps of filz-it felting wool of indetermined origin.

It's being sent to someone on a ravelry swap so I don't get to keep it. The raspberry colour is my favourite.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: My first pair of gloves! on: November 26, 2010 01:39:24 PM
Haha, no but I did try to stretch the right (shorter) one a bit- I 'blocked' by wetting them, stretching, putting under a towel then getting impatient and putting them on.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first pair of gloves! on: November 26, 2010 01:24:09 PM
These are my wonky fingerless gloves- one is shorter than the other as I ran out of patience and yarn. It's my first thing that's not an odd glove, or square, or circle or flower. I only know one stitch by heart so it's all single crochet (I'm in the UK but I learnt from an American website).

The yarn was sent to me by a2k about 2 years ago- I finally learnt to do something with it!

I think you're really good, and also, you look a bit like me- we have similar haircuts. My favourite is the skull with tentacles- I like the idea, and love the colours.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Muchas Tortilla Cozies (6 various designs) on: November 24, 2010 12:18:17 AM
Ah, thankyou! You didn't have to go to the trouble just for me! They look so cosy, and my favourite is the redwork one- it looks like it's a drawing, but with thread.
