1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby blue baby romper--Two years in the making. on: August 02, 2010 10:50:07 PM
I must admit, my fellow craftsters, that it's been AGES since I posted anything to this site, and even longer since I've crafted seriously. Sadly, medical procedures got in the way of my crafting, and only recently did I begin to create again. Actually, not begin, as much as finish.

I started this right before my medical evaluations that eventually lead to a lot of therapy, and just finished it tonight. It feels like finishing this really closed that (rather painful) chapter of my life, and just in time, because my friend is having a baby boy in December, so this warm little thing will be good for him.

Forgive the fact that it's on a teddy bear--it's the only thing I have that looks biological and baby-sized. It's made with Caron recycled yarn, so it's all old soda bottles, something his eco-conscious mama will love, and the yarn is actually really soft, so he'll like it too! And with that, I give you, my BABY BLUE BABY ROMPER.  Cheesy

That picture turned out a little blurry Sad

And this one taught me the valuable lesson of orienting the picture before I upload it...

And this one is neither blurry nor sideways, but is, in fact, a close-up of the buttons.

The fact is, I'm ecstatic to be finished, but as it's 11 at night, I'm too tired to fix the images, so I hope these work, and I guess the moral of the story is it's never too late to finish that project. YAY!

2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 48 Off White Pillow Cases on: June 05, 2008 08:31:59 AM
So I'm in this unit for wounded soldiers, and we get donations all the time! (If any of you guys have donated, thanks, we appreciate it!) Well, here's an awesome one: a linens factory donated 144 pillow cases! And 288 flat sheets! So I took a huge stack of sheets for dresses (yay!) and then my squad leader knock on my door and hands me four stacks of a dozen pillow cases each. No one was taking them, and he knows my love of all things fabric. The question is... Now what? I was thinking skirts, and maybe a bunch of backpacks, but come on, that's a dozen, tops. I've got 48 of these things! What do you guys think?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My One-Weeked Sweater on: February 09, 2008 07:53:54 PM
I actually finished this sweater in a weekend ^_^ Mind you, the weekend was sitting in my barracks knitting, and nothing else, but the point is it took me one weekend to finish... with size 13 needles.

sorry the picture's sideways, i don't know how to fix it. anyway, it's my first complete sweater in ages, since i was little ^_^ so i'm proud.

Thanks for checking it out!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / a quick grimoire on: April 01, 2007 08:01:50 PM
My mad wicca self decided that since i've got my new herbal garden growing away, i needed a grimoire to keep track of what plants and herbs are good for what. So I threw this together in literally twenty minutes, which makes me a bit sad, since it looks pretty cheaply made. which it is... but it's my first book so i'm not too upset about it. okay, i am upset, but i'm pretending to like it. It will do it's job. i'll leave it at that... ... why am i even posting this? oh well. here you go. my herbal grimoire:

this is the front:

this is the back:

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Le Muffin du Diable on: March 28, 2007 04:39:12 PM
Um this is the Le Muffin du Diable, and his good friend, Mephistopheles Toast. I got inspired one day and doodled them in a notebook. Showed them to a friend and she loved them so much, i decided to give them to her. So here they are! First thing I've ever really completed and been somewhat proud of...  Embarrassed
