Long time no see! [29 Apr 2010|08:43am]

Life stuff has been happening, and now I’m back (more or less) but I’m currently sewing machine-less so I haven’t been making anything. However, I made this about six weeks ago and can finally post it because the challenge it was for is now public.

Our challenge word was “passage”.

Beads & Chains

And, as soon as we got our word for the second challenge, I knew exactly what my quilt would be about.Collapse )

Question [04 Mar 2007|12:06pm]

I have never done this before and was wondering if some of you could help. There is a puzzle that I want to mount and hang after I'm finished with it, but I don't know exactly how to do that. Is there a special type of glue that I need or any other special materials? Thank you so much.

Introduction [02 Mar 2007|09:00pm]

Hi. I just wanted to join a community where I could post my drawings. Because I've never taken an art class in my life, they aren't much more than doodles. I'm working on it though! Here is a copy of my latest doodle that I made while very bored in a lab meeting (hence the lined notebook paper).

I was originally going to do an anime style drawing but changed my mind. That's part of the reason the face got so screwy. That and I haven't quite figured out how to draw proper faces.

Whee, I just finished a bunch of things.. I'm a bit obsessed with making bags with felt appliques at the moment, so I'm trying to get it out of my system! Good job I'm having a stall at a craft fair in a month or so and will be able to do something with it all! :)

Pictures.Collapse )

Hi everyone!

I've just finished a bunch of new 14" x 14" cushion covers... 9 of them. Oh jeebus, I am SO over basting and putting in zips! They're all cotton with felt appliques, zipped bottoms, and a back to match the colour of the front applique. Mostly geeky designs, but I've also made a cute 70s inspired owl design on vintage fabric. He matches an earlier bird that I made, inspired by the same set of images.


I've made the whole set of Pacman ghosts along with Pacman and Ms Pacman in love.

Hi everyone... I've been reading the community for a while ogling your gorgeous crafts and thought I'd show off some of the stuff I've been making lately. At the moment I'm obsessed with making cushion covers from new and vintage fabrics with felt appliques based on whatever catches my fancy - mostly geeky things (godzilla, pacman, etc) and images inspired by vintage fabrics (particularly from the 60s and 70s - I'm obsessed with stuff of that era). I'm also developing an obsession with making aprons, of which I have four (!) on the go. I'm going to visit my best friend for a week because she's having her first baby and am taking a suitacase of crafty stuff with me to work on, teehee.

Pictures below the cut - they're quite big.

Monkeycraft @ Etsy, by the way. ;)

East End Church of Craft- second meetup! [14 Aug 2006|10:39pm]

In a bit of sad luck our esteemed reverend Polska and her beloved Dan both came down with the flu and were unable to come to host the second East End Church of Craft meetup on Sunday Aug.13th. :(
The Aquagirls crew had a gig in Hampton Bays and were sorely missed too, though Trina did stop in for a while which was lovely. We did our best to keep the craftin torch lit and had a small but still wonderful group attending this time. Me, Tugboat, Pat, Tom, Trina, Piper and Jacob, and Brenty later on.

Pat is working on ATCs (artist trading cards)! She's got bits of old photos and all sorts of images she's collaging together into lovely combinations. I think we'll introduce this concept a bit more formally in some future meetup- so fun!
see more!Collapse )

new church is born: East End CHU [06 Aug 2006|02:54pm]

After talking about it for a while, and feeling the sore lack in our area, some friends and I decided to JUST DO IT. (that is:start up a chapter of the inspirational Church of Craft out here in 'the Hammies', the east end of Long Island, NY.!)
We had our very first meetup last sunday at Tugboat's North Sea House, a local bar/lounge with a cozy eccentric feel.
Here are some pics from the meetup. We had 14 crafty peeps hanging around at different times and a little show and tell area and temporary browsing library with craft books, mags and zines. LOVED it. We're going to try to get together every other sunday.
I say to anyone who's sad this isn't happening in their area....grab one friend and start it up! make a flyer and go let folks know....craftypeeps are secretly all around you!
You'll be glad you did!
