I received some AWESOME patches from ale0059 today!  Without further ado  Cheesy:


I'd like to say I can pick a favorite, but I can't!  They are all so perfect!

Thank you ale!

P.S.-And the card is nifty too...that's why I included it in the photo.  Wink

I have some photos to show of what me and my girls were doing in June and today:



Since the girls are out of school for the summer, we've declared Mondays to be "Pinterest Mondays".  Basically, that means that we each take turns choosing something either from our pinterest or just in general to do.  It adds some structure to the week.  My younger DD chose to make bath bombs.  We couldn't find round molds so we improvised using a popsicle maker, and then my younger DD just rolled the rest of the mixture into a ball with her hands.  They came out good, considering we didn't have enough of the ingredients!

We also like making our own pizzas, using our own homegrown basil:




Lastly, today we made some pico de gallo (sp?) to eat with our meal for the Fourth of July.  We used our own homegrown tomatoes and cilantro:


Here's the recipe for it:

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 lbs. plum tomatoes-cored, halved, and seeded (about 2 1/2 cups)
3/4 cup finely diced white onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:
-Cut the tomatoes into 1/4 inch pieces, and put into a bowl.
-Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.
-Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for one hour for the flavors to meld.

Enjoy!

DH was home from work for a minute when I happened to receive my pocket letter from Dearbluebird.  It was so amazing that both DH and I had our breath taken away when I opened up the envelope!  (Speaking of, I took a photo of the envelope but when I uploaded it to picasa, it some how disappeared.  Cry Angry ) Suffice it to say, the envelope was very decorated and I saved it to use with my future ATCs!  Smiley)

Here is what the pocket letter was wrapped in:

(BTW...how did you make the yellow part?  I like how it came out!)
Here is the front of the pocket letter:

And the back:


As you can see, SIMPLY AMAZING!  THANK YOU DEARBLUEBIRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I am seeing correctly, you took a big coloring page and cut it into nine ATCs, am I correct?  I LOVE that idea!  It's so different!

I love the bandanas as wrapping paper too, both for the environmental friendly element, but also b/c they are so colorful!

I finished the afghan I was working on to donate to my Temple's Chinese Auction in November:


And a close up of the stitches:


I've posted photos of a crocheted blanket in the same colors and I've also posted photos of a blanket made with these stitches.  One, once I find a color combo I find interesting, it's hard for me to let go.  Roll Eyes  Two, I'm the same way with fun crochet stitches.  Roll Eyes  And three, for awhile there I was buying the soft 'pound of yarn' skeins, just b/c I liked the colors!  You'll be seeing another afghan soon!  Grin

I received from the talented and thoughtful jkaywiz last week.  I'm sorry for the delay in posting photos, but here they are:

That is how it was taped when the package arrived!  I love the rainbow tape, it made me smile!

This is the page in it's entirety!  It took my breath away when I first saw it-it's perfect!

Some of the detail...

More detail...

Some supplies to use on my next page.  Cheesy

Some VERY nifty fabric to use on a future page as well!

Thank you so very much, jkaywiz!  Grin

I love the Halloween thingy you made, AIMR!  It's 3-D holiday art!
Congrats lindy on being made a mod!

A few random things I've made:



The random things are as follows:  a TM patch for the bag I want to make with them, a tallit pouch for my DD for her bat mitzvah, and the second fabric journal page I made for the swap.

I am wondering...for us gardeners out there...does that count as part of the craftalong?

Yea, jkaywiz, you received it!  Here's a photo that I took of the front:




I used the same cutout idea that I did on the other page for my other partner, except that I cut out around one of the butterflies that was printed on the fabric, so that the cutout shape was of a butterfly! The one wing that is sewn to the top left of the cutout is a wing left over from that cutout . I used pastel varigated thread to sew around the cutout.  I made three holes on the bottom to put the piece of lace thru.  To the left of the lace is a small silver butterfly charm.  I also used a metal butterfly that was meant for papercraft to decorate the fabric page.  I used two layers of fabric and one of canvas and stitched around the edges.  I cut the edges of the fabric on an angle for this page and I hope it frays quickly!  There's also a handmade label sewn onto the back that says:  Handmade by Barbara.
