1  Re: 50 Projects 2015 --POST YOUR 2015 Lists in Craftalongs by lindyv321 on: January 07, 2015 09:45:34 AM
Beautiful way to dress up your ceiling.  I love the leaves.

My cousin and I bet a package on the AZ Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks game and I lost (dang my losing team).  The package wasn't for anything specific so I decided to send her a few of my favorite things and something crafted.  I don't think she wears much jewelry so I stitched her up a hoop.

It's hard to tell in the picture but it's black and purple not just all black.

I suppose this is my first project of 2015 even though I am not going to count my foodie projects on this years list... Christmas Eve and Christmas morning is all the Christmas time I get with my kids since they spend Christmas day with their dad.  This means we don't usually get a Christmas dinner together. This year I wanted a nice dinner so we bought a ham and did it on New Years Day.  I saw a post for some yummy looking potatoes on Facebook and gave them a try. 

They were REALLY good and will for sure be made again.

Loving all the end of the year projects! 

I made this yesterday as a test project on my new amazingly awesome embroidery machine! 

I still have a lot to learn about the machine and how to use it but so far so good!

I have lots of things I didn't get done this year that will get moved to 2015 but I still made WAY over 100 projects!

Here are some Christmas cookies I made.  They turned out really good and are super easy!

I followed the recipe except I exchanged the regular M&M's with peppermint M&M's.   SO good

Here's the pin/recipe

Oh and don't you just love my mug rug??  artsycandice made it for me Wink

6  Cupcake Ornaments in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:55:59 AM
While stalking my partner for the Secret Santa swap I stumbled on a pin for these super cute cupcake ornaments.  I decided to make one for her and one for my partner in the stocking swap.  I used mini cupcake liners, mini bulbs, fake snow,  a red bead, and seeds beads to make these ornaments. 

I wish I had used more fake snow on them, especially the blue one.

8  Winter in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:37:37 AM
I started this project last year for the Friends of Craftster Raffle swap but it never got finished.  I pulled it out and finished it as my submission for the December theme in the Ongoing Hoopla Stitchalong.  The pattern is from Urban Threads  I used a back stitch and chain stitch.

I am not sure that I would ever use a chain stitch as a fill stitch in the future since I have discovered better ways to fill but I think it looks nice.

Here is my December entry.  I started this hoop a year ago an never finished it but the winter theme was the perfect excuse to pull it out and get it done.

10  Retro Camper in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:29:47 AM
I was partnered with quaggy in Secret Santa Swap and I knew she liked hoops.  I browsed designs on Etsy and when I saw this one I knew it had to be made for her.  It's a Retro Camper by Lova Revolution

When I printed the design out I had meant to make it smaller so it would fit in a 6 or 7 inch hoop.  Ooops!  Luckily I had this big old hoop laying around which fit the design perfectly.  I also found it nice to stitch a bigger design.  It was a happy mistake!

The only issue I had is when I rinsed off the stabilizer it made the fabric wrinkle in a few places and I couldn't get them out even with the iron...
