1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Polaroid 80's style Quilt on: January 29, 2015 05:49:45 PM
I love your use of outling/quilting with the...ummm...almost looks like the old time negative slide thingies.
Born in '94..you are a bit young for this, but great that you enjoy it. I do, too. You did a wonderful job of things.
Congratulations on a big quilt project. I can't wait to see your next one.

Yup. I go with the Microbead theory, too. I think they are usually with scrapbooking and rubber stamp suppies. I have some clear sparkly ones that I use. You might also find them near the glitter.


To add: they are messier then hell  Grin they rolly poly all over if you are not careful and contain them. I use mine in recycled mushroom cartons, and such. And put my gluey project in there, and swish it around. Then I can pour the rest back in their container.

Just ideas.

There is an oil product called "Sew Ease" that can help to oil the tension discs. You might try that. You just put a smidge on your fingers, and hold the thread {s} at the top lightly while it is running through the machine. You will find it in the notion section of your fabric stores. It comes in a teeny bottle. You don't need much. And don't oil the discs direct. Let the thread guide it through.

Don't feel bad honey, I still can't get my Kenmore regular sewing machine timed right. And I don't know how I blew it out. It was doing fine. Then *BANG*.  Grin I am so bummed, but haven't had time or patients to deal with it.

Paste your "boo boo" down with Mod Podge, and call it art. Embroider by hand around it. It looks pretty. Cheesy Sergers are a pain. If I were you I would take the darn thing back to the store and make the mechanic get it working right. Bring your threads and needles. They should get things proper. I wish you luck.

Anxiously awaiting who I get to partner with for my pal. And don't feel intimidated, team. Just do your best with what you love to do. I am sure our "lovers" will love it all the same.  Grin

Perhaps some music to craft to? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6JjET55sWw Forever love songs  Grin

Yup. We still have time. I am trying to re-organize as I go, so this is taking more. But I will be ahead of the game for the next future swaps. Then {silly me} I went and joined another swap  Roll Eyes But these can work together, so it will be OK. Send outs are just a day apart, but I should be in the "green" for this one.

Crap. I forgot all about the pattern thing. I did get the yarn out for this swap. And have a large box of little goodies to wrap into my "mummy monster"  Grin I am guessing it is supposed to look like the photo on our home page.

I will have to get with partner again, and see if she is wishing anything special by way of patterns. I have a bunch of old WorkBasket books with lots of vintage stuff. Perhaps she wishes something from there. My printer is broken, but maybe I can surf some links if I can't find what she wishes from my library of goodies. And share things that way?

I love all your pages  Grin

And I have a fruit and vegetable page on the side of my fridge where I save stickers, pretty soon mine will fall off from sheer weight and lack of heavy duty magnets. Not sure what I will do with it then, but a journal page is a good idea.

A clove is just one lumpy part of garlic "bulb". Smash it sideways with a large knife, or chop it fine by hand, or stick it in one of those blendy things...La Machine  Grin I just buy mine in the large jars that are pre chopped. Then i can just add a scoop or two.

A garlicastrophe, Too funny. You really can't have too much garlic. Add a bit of sugar if you go overboard. That will even out the mix. And soften the tart.


Ooops...love your hexies. I am still learning how to make mine.
