1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Birthday Gift For A Friend - Mature Language on: June 25, 2011 09:31:34 PM
A friend of mine is a connoisseur of cursing.  Asshat is one of her favorite words.  Since I cannot draw to save my life, I Googled the term and found this link: http://internalbleedingstrawberry.tumblr.com/post/1521859654/it-cuts-my-bread-when-people-call-each-other-asshats

I used one of the drawings and came up with this for her:

The frame is for a wallet sized photo.  I used back stitch and seed stitch and made it all wonky and crude to match the subject matter.

The thing is, I like it so much that I feel like I need to make one for myself.  (And that never happens.  I usually hate my stuff when it's done.  Maybe I'm growing... =^D)
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ex-Husband VooDoo Doll for Friend - NSFW ? on: March 08, 2010 02:56:43 PM
My dear friend from high school is getting divorced from an ugly man who was very abusive both verbally and physically.  She is having a rough time as he is still an a-hole.  He owes her a lot of money, talks down to her whenever he picks up the girls for a visit, steals things from her when he picks the kids up - the list goes on and on.  Through all of this, she has managed to keep her sense of humor.

I thought that since she is being so wonderful about the whole thing, that she deserves a voodoo doll of him.  I know that she will never use it, but I hope that it makes her laugh.  There are some personal jokes on there and the design is all my own - a first for me, I always use transfers.

Some of the things are - chauvinist pig, penny pincher, yellow belly, dickhead, back stabber, 2 left feet.....

So here you go - the ex-hubby voodoo doll:

4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Napkins on: September 15, 2008 06:58:31 PM
I wanted to send napkins to school that my sons would actually want to use.  They picked out the patterns they wanted, what the napkins would say,  and helped pick out the colors I used.

Since I can't seem to get the hang of adding my photos here - you can see the new napkins on my Flickr page.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/25687386@N04/sets/72157607313309350/

Comments welcome!  Thanks for looking.  

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Newbie ? about I Spy Quilts on: June 10, 2008 07:35:55 PM
Hi Guys,

I am a newbie and have looked for posts about I Spy quilts but did not see any.  (If I've missed them, I am very sorry.  Please tell me where to find those posts.) 

I am VERY new to quilting and wanted to make "matching" I Spy lap quilts for my brothers, my sister, mom, and dad.  I was wondering if a pattern exists, or if they are pretty much made up as you go.

Has anyone made one?  Do y'all have any suggestions for someone who is getting into quilting with a stupid huge project Cheesy?  Any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!  Thanks.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sibling Rivalry on: May 21, 2008 04:45:48 AM
Here are the pillowcases I've done for my sons (4 and 8 ).  They both picked out the patterns and colors they wanted.  They both also want more on the pillowcases, but I had to stop for now (too many other projects to do).  O's pillow case will get a large Garfield on the back and other Sublime Stitching kitties around the edges.  Moose just wants the same amount of stuff on his that O has.  It has become a huge sibling rivalry as to who has the better pillowcase.   Roll Eyes

Here are the links to the pictures.  Sorry for the shadows.  I just wanted to get these up and posted.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/25687386@N04/sets/72157605172587854/

Stitches used are backstitch, split stitch, french knots, and satin stitch.  This was also my first shot at tinting with crayons.  It was so much fun (but now I fear I may never learn to do a decent fill in stitch).  My 4 year old helped to tint the ball on his pillowcase.  He is SO proud of his work.   Grin
7  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Swallow Napkins on: April 18, 2008 06:06:47 PM
OK - here is my first post with photos.  Please be kind Wink.  I got the napkins from Target and used the pattern from the stitch it kit.  I did free hand letters and hate the way they turned out.  Oh well, live and learn.  Hope that you like them.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / The new patterns are here!! on: January 31, 2008 02:34:37 PM
OK - so I get home and snug and safe in the mailbox are the patterns I ordered!  I am so excited to get to work.  Sorry - I was so excited I had to share.
