1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2014 on: November 19, 2014 11:29:02 PM
I love it. Grin {Sorry, my exclamation key is on the fritz.} Sunbonnet Sam is another good pattern, too. They have good free patterns on the internet.

Give google images a try, then trace with tracing paper off the screen. Print shops can make adjustments for the size. Or you can scan and change it if you have that.

I like your quilted pillow idea, but I also like it left in the hoop. Or buy a cheaper hoop. That one looks like the antique ones that I work with.


Here...don't you guys ever image search???


This one is my girl that I am working on soon:


Just one for a pillow topper. I don't think I could make a whole quilt with her. It was hard enough to fashion the pattern for her. And mine holds an embroidered flower basket, and not the umbrella.

alwaysinmyroom can testify for my applique skills. But I do embroidery, too. Right now I am attached to paper arts. But wanting to get back to hoopla arts. I am joining a local art quilting guild, as well. I might just get some of them interested with this style of crafty-ness.  Cheesy

Whoops. One more for Sam. He has many names. And cute outfits. Love you all and thanks for putting up with me  Grin

Should have made it Jello in the pool...and everyone could have a scoop!  Grin Just kidding. Looks like a fun day!

Add on some recipes to share? Those look wonderful and delicious! I love your fruits..and the feathers! I don't know what a Momo is, but I am guessing a Grandma. Your Day of the Dead is quite interesting, too. What are the little bumpy things for the bicycle wheels, and DOTD hair? The last picture I think is in Paris..but I am a dumb American. But those look fun to eat, as well.  Grin

That is the best use of google eyes that I have ever seen! I usually think "kid art" when I use them, but yours look great on this project. Nice job!


Ooops. Looking again, maybe the eyes are clay. But google eyes would work great for them.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / Re: Great Mitered Cloth Napkins for Thanksgiving! on: November 09, 2014 06:55:03 PM
Those look great!

I, too have been collecting textiles. Though I am not making my own. I love cloth napkins, as well. At least for company. And also fabric table runners, and placemats.

It looks like you will be setting a grand table. I love the idea of the mixie up for the dishes, too. That tends to give a lively flair for things. And glad that you can share vintage dishes from family. You always amaze me with your creative talents  Grin

I have a stack of Workbasket Magazine from my Grandmother. And love all of their designs. You can turn them into almost anything. Even if it is meant as a pillowcase, does not mean you can't make it a hoopla. I have also traced the images and used them in applique ideas. For overlays of things. That is the fun of fiber arts. No rules! Thread fabric and tracing paper...will travel.  Grin


Whoops. Forgot to add. I have a vintage Sun Bonnet Sue quilt from my Great Grandmother. Complete with her "snuff" stains on it   Cheesy Kentucky...the ladies "dipped" tobacco. The quilt has never been washed or used. I love it just the way it is.

I have renamed my ranch the "Holiday House" and don't plan to put away any ornaments. I have a small 4 foot tree, and am just adding random ornaments to it. And tacking up other stuff for all the holidays. It will look crazy, but I think it will be cool! My way to "roll". Next up are some hearts for the Valentine's day. Oh, and first...turkey finger kid crafts...my neighbor can help with those. Her kids have small hands  Grin We will make a day of marker and glue projects. FUN!

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: I've been too scared to try forever, but finally made my first... on: November 07, 2014 06:55:09 AM
Newbie or not, you did a very fine job of things. Your piecing and quilting looks wonderful. I also like the look of the contrast of colors. Your binding looks very professional as well. That is the point where most quilters get a little frustrated. {In a hurry to finish, and sick of the darn project  Grin} You did swell. Pat yourself on the back...I am too far away to reach you or I would do it!

I have decided that I will keep my tree up year round! It is only a little table tree {4 foot}, but I added 3 pumpkin/jack'o lantern ornaments to it last week. I grew the gourds myself  Grin And painted them.

This week I want to trace the kid hands and make those turkey things that they do in the schools. And share some arts with the kids.

Yes, I am a lurker here. but I love all the stuff that I am seeing.

I am renaming my ranch the Holiday farm. And love all the ideas you are sharing.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: DIY neck/shoulder heat pillow on: October 29, 2014 07:50:06 AM
I recently did some studies on these. Rice burns in the microwave. Deer feed does not. Well, it eventually would if you truly overheat it...but it takes the heat better. And is cheaper for anyone wishing to make these to sell. WalMart sells it in their gun aisle. or if you are rural..co-ops offer it, too.

A nurse on one website also said that the deer feed is more sanitary, as she wished to use these with her patients, but had to get hospital approval. The rice failed approvals. The corn did not. And she studied it way further than me..with lab tests and all.

I used to go to a spa {back when I could afford it  Grin} They also had the hand mitts with the rice/corn in between the layers. Think of an oven mitt that is stuffed, like a mitten stuffy. And warms the hands and fingers. Just trace an outline of your hand for the original pattern...add a few inches for the puffy part. It is OK if it is a bit too big. Then you can still wiggle your fingers  Cheesy. Not a glove, but a mitten. Big fingers together and rounded like Frostie the Snowman.

Just some ideas. I like the way you designed yours with the "channels" to control the stuffing stuff. It seems like that would be much easier to control and balance on your neck. You can also make these larger like a cape. Where it drapes longer over your shoulders. And adds warmth to that area, too. Kind of like the beauty parlor capes, but not as long.

Great project! I love it  Grin
