OMG I love this!! I may have to make one!

Thanks!  I'd love to see your interpretation of a lake monster!

That's amazing. I love it. Nessie rocks my socks.

Thank you!  Those must be wet socks!

Oh I love it! It looks like an antique, I love that you used 2 frames for it!

The frames may be antique, they're definitely vintage; purchased at an estate sale.

I made this Nessie diptych for a far-away friend and fellow cryptid enthusiast.  She received it in the mail today (a total surprise) so now I can finally post it!

Head:


Tail:


I used 4 combinations of a single strand of metallic floss with 1 strand each of 2 more colors of DMC to make his body seem more slick and scaly.  You can see the metallic a bit more in these shots which also have the best representation of the true colors.

Head:


Tail:


A closer look at the shoreline:

There are 4 deciduous trees in the forest, but only this one has a few autumn leaves left on it.

The 2 pieces off the piptych together:


I used chain stitch, satin stitch, long and short stitch, french knots. back stitch and whatever it's called when you just do one stitch of running stitch.

That's the most engineered cupcake I've seen or heard of!  Plus it's adorable.  I'm so glad Key likes it (at least for now).

Oh, man!  That turned out so nicely!  I've been going through a bias tape-making phase and that version might be the thing that gets me back into sewing real clothes after 20 years.  Not just costumes anymore for this T!  (maybe)

This is just marvelous!  It's so colorful and yet still sophisticated.  It should age well as your son grows.  I hope the pup isn't as stern about the nursery as it looks.   Wink

Cute!  Just 2 days ago I was at Ikea loving that fabric and wondering what I could make out of it.  Now I know.

ha! this is great!

i've tried crocheting at the lunch table at work... it was not well-received! haha

Unless you get crazy with your elbows, I'm can't figure out why anyone would mind.   Tongue

This makes me think 2 things.

1. I wish I had photos of me crafting on buses in Argentina and Uruguay and on the airplanes to/from. 
2. There are a couple of crafty ladies who've been trying to get together to do some crafting for a couple months, and for at least 2 of us last couple weeks of March are looking good.  This may be what makes me make them put it on the calendar!

I think the time has come for the planets to come together and the world to experience the meeting of the minds.  Cheesy Wink

Ya' got that right, pretty lady!
