Your work is really good, especially the distlefink. I have never seen anything like this before and am inspired to research a little now.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first Afghan!! on: June 06, 2010 08:32:20 AM
I was inspired by a crochet along announced here, which I can't seem to find now, and taught myself how to join granny squares, make scalloped edging etc. All thanks to the mighty Internet.

Since it is way too hot in India right now, this was all the yarn I could find, so I made a child sized afghan, not sure how I'll use it though, no kids of my own you see....
But well, I am now confident to undertake some more advanced crochet projects...
More to come!!:)

Great work. The shadow work is very pretty, and it is to funny you make patchwork in cross stitch  Cheesy. And it looks very good. The girl in the dress is cute. I think I made something like that when I was young, from a book with traditional Romanian dresses - if I remember correctly.
Thank you!! I am yet to start quilting, so this was a good way to get a feel... Smiley

I have been trying to finish a granny square blanket for 4 months now... I guess this would be such a great incentive to finish it...
I would love to join the crochet along!

That said, I put a tab top curtain panel in place of my daughter's closet door and it seems to stay in place a little better than a regular curtain.
Well, eventually this is what I did...

Thanks danger.kitty..
I too was thinking of some smaller stitch for the eyebrow, but seed stitch looks too much like a french knot when I tried it on, and had to unpick it... I am looking for some suitable stitch....
As for the eyes, I am not sure how blue eyes will look on a piece that is completely black otherwise... I'll have to try that... Thanks for the suggestion though...

I noticed that while creating a new topic, preview is not available when I am using chrome.
I mean I do get a preview, but the box is too small and so are the scrolls. (Please note the area encircled with red.)

And this happens only while using Google Chrome, I have no such problem when I use firefox or IE.

Hi All,
I created a sketch of my mom's pic via http://www.dumpr.net/sketch.php

Since I can't draw to save my life, I traced the image onto a butter/ tracing paper

While tracing the glint of smile from her eyes was gone... I noticed it while I was tracing it, I tried retracing but every time, the smile somehow belied me....

Then I used this method of tracing on fabric http://www.needlenthread.com/2009/02/transferring-embroidery-pattern-using.html
And I have finally reached a point where I now have to embroider eyes...

The details of tracing are somewhat fuzzy... so I am not sure how to go about it.... I am having trouble in the following:
  • The eyes: My mom is not actually brown eyed like the rest of us in the family, and I am not sure how to show her blue eyes... Brown eyes, I could darken all over, but for light eyes, I can't do that....
  • The eyebrows: How do I show eyebows? I mean how to embroider so that it looks like hair?
  • Shading: Is it fine if I don't do shading?? will it still look good? I am inclined towards no shading, for the lack of skill.... but this can be my chance to learn it though... I am confused....
I think the nose is traced a little thicker, I'll be working on it soon...

I'll appreciate any suggestions you have for me...
