1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mr Snowy in cross stitch on: December 17, 2008 03:02:45 AM
I made this for my stepmother for Christmas as she collects snowmen ... I picked him because I loved his cool hat!! It's a Casey Buonaugurio Designs chart called 'Let it Snow'. Originally it was meant to have snowflake buttons but they weren't going to frame well so I used a Rhodes-heart stitch instead.

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Two Lost Souls/Pink Floyd shirt on: September 14, 2008 06:17:45 AM
This is a stencil I've been wanting to make for ages, I'm not sure how happy I am with the final product though.

I ended up using orange sparkle on the fish because they didn't look right when they just flat orange.

Inspired by Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd:
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell?
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here
3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / C is for slippers? on: July 19, 2008 01:14:54 AM
Was walking through the supermarket when I saw these plain blue fuzzy slippers and thought 'Hey, I recognise that blue!!'.

Searched the internet for pic ture of his face and used that to trace the mouth and eyes onto felt, cut out and adhere with hot glue. Voila!! I want to put a cookie on the somewhere as well but my housemate argues it won't fit.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Learning crochet in Melbourne, Australia? on: June 05, 2008 10:32:21 PM
Does anybody know where I could learn to crochet in Melb? I am a complete beginner.
I have checked with the CAE but their classes are already full and google searches don't seem to bring up much.
Preferably somewhere in the city or the inner suburbs (I'm in Brunswick) would be good.

I tried joining the s'n'b Melb yahoo group to ask but my membership is still pending after 2 weeks.

(I have cross posted this because I only got one response in Australia specific forum)

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Butterfly & Dragonfly on: April 27, 2008 08:37:40 PM
Made these for a swap using the patterns from the beadjewelrymaking site. They were pretty easy once you get the hang of it because they are really all the same basic step with different numbers of beads. I need to get new wire though because the one I am using is a little too thin and so the projects are kind of floppy. Also those blasted pink beads are not really pink, they are just painted pink or something ... so everytime I use them the colour comes off the beads and ends up dying my fingers.


7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / It is a truth universally acknowledged... on: March 16, 2008 01:07:32 AM

'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a birthday girl in possesion of a good party must be in want of a drink'

Made this for a friend (we're never short of literary jokes and puns).
Used photoshop to add a lei to Jane, but unfortuantely when I put a layer of diamond glaze over it the flowers sort of bled a little and ended up looking not so partyish...

Printed on canvas paper, plastic typewriter letter stickers.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Something is terribly amiss... (skirt recon help pls) on: February 26, 2008 09:53:31 PM
So I bought myself this skirt off ebay. It was a reputable brand I'd worn before so I wasn't too worried about sizing but it arrived yesterday and as soon as I tried it on it become apparent that something is ... amiss ... about it.
It has this cute edging on it and is like a wrap style but with a waistband which results in a rather large opening but I'm not worried about that, as it's easy to fix. It's the entire shape of the skirt ... it's almost like there is more material on one side than the other, meaning one side sits flat and the other one hangs all drapey weirdness. I really love the material and the edging and so I'd love to save it ... but I'm not really sure what to do with it. When I lay it flat it seems that the hemline is indeed not straight and seems to curve downwards towards the back so perhaps that is part of the problem. I feel I need to somehow reduce the actual amount of material in the skirt overall (not lengthwise but so it sits right) and possibly make the hemline straight.
Any ideas? I have a sewing machine!

Here are the pictures so you can see what I mean ... I am standing straight so any uneveness is because of the skirt itself. Also I posted a closeup of the waistband (with more cute little pleated edges).

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Mad World Canvas on: February 26, 2008 04:01:37 AM

Continuing my 'ridiculously detailed stencils' theme.

Not too sure if I'm actually finished with it yet, it just occured to me I could add some raised spirals as well. The black is glittery but it didn't really show up like I wanted. The letters are raised with diamond glaze.
Made the stencil using the type on a path tool in illustrator.
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Obnoxious T-shirt slogan on: February 02, 2008 06:26:01 AM

I just couldn't resist making this shirt ... I was inspired by all those people running around in t-shirts with huge flouro lettering on them  Tongue which are in fashion atm (well, in Australia at least).
