FreakieGeekie--those are going to be epic blankets for your friends!


bunny1kenobi--ha I agree, comfort is important! I am sure you skirt is very comfy!

I finished kbrison's DNP quilt blocks for our swap!  These were so easy because I used leftover charms...they are already cut into 5" squares...used up stash since these were what I did not use to make other projects...I think I am going to use up some more to make myself a scrappy quilt as well.



Spent part of the day organizing my WIPS and my scraps.  Now I am ready to stream watch The 4400 and craft! Cheesy

As part of my personal destashing goals, I decided that I am going to do a scrap project each week.  Scrap yarn, scrap fabric, scrap papers, etc.

Here is my project for 9/1:

I started with scraps left over from cutting out quilt pieces and some old recipe card stock I found in my Mom's basement:



I glue and sewed the scraps on the cards to make these:



I then used my heart stencils to cut out hearts. Glued them on and used a mix of glitter and glue to go around the edges....ta da--much needed notecards for swaps! Grin



I still have tons of scraps so I will be on the hunt for more easy and fun projects!

Thanks for looking!

I received two items from the Frugal Living Swap today!

Banana-Pineapple Nut Bread


It came in handy when I needed a snack.


I also got a set of much needed notecards!  They are made from leftover scraps from her quilting projects and kraft paper--how frugal!


She said to overlook her dog hair carpet...she was not feeling 100% today and did not get a chance to vacuum! Grin

I posted sloth's blocks in my gallery.  I owed her a few blocks for her previous generosity in sending me extras, so I made two of each.

Here they are all together...dang...it is almost a full quilt already! Grin

My partner in the Carnivorous Plant Swap received.  I made her a journal cover, a magnetized pin cushion and some notecards.



I also tried out another knit hat pattern...it was suppose to fit a baby but it actually fit a 10 year old. So, I used the leftover yarn to make a crochet baby hat.





Finally, I have been working on more quilt blocks.  I made 8 for sloth since I loved her patterns and colors.



This will be another busy weekend for me with crafts and house chores!

oh in the spirit of getting things done...

First of all, I AM NOT the "creepy" doll lady we read about in California....but, I was left with some of those dolls, and yes, I do think most of them are creepy....but, in all fairness, I think it is their clothes that give them the creep power...

so, my mission is to take the three I have (my mom loved them for some reason...), and dress them in Renaissance clothing.  I love RenFaire but do not have the stamina to make a full sized costume...here are the BEFORE pictures...look for the AFTER, hopefully, by Christmas! Grin


I am thinking a lovely green velvet gown...


A gold gown with pearl bodice.


Not sure if this was a icky boy or girl clown (hate clowns)...so I cut the hair shorter to make it look like a boy so I can dress him up in a nice vest and pants....

aww Happy Anniversary, bunny!  Nice cards!

artsycandice--looks like a great scrappy quilt...is that the D9P? (Disappearing 9 path--a favorite and great for any beginners as well!)

Can't wait to see your miniature bears!

I was going to give this scarf away but I liked it so much I am keeping it and making something else... Grin

10  Vintage Lotus Pattern Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: August 23, 2014 05:21:48 PM
I was looking for a sort of Queen Anne's Lace pattern when I came across this pattern in my search.  Of course, I can't find the printed out pattern that I used right now, but it had instructions and a chart.  The chart was very helpful because I sort of got lost in the instructions.  I also believe there are little video clips in the instructions to help you.

I love this scarf!  I tried making it with a lighter weight yarn, but the leaves kept flopping...and the pattern gets lost easily with fluffy or variegated yarns.  The yarn I used is a washable worsted wool in a tonal colorway.  I can't wait for colder weather to wear it.

It is about six feet long so that it can cascade down the front to show off the lotus leaves.


Closeup to show the open lace pattern.


It went pretty fast but you do have to pay attention to where you are making the joins...goofed up several times until I got used to the pattern.

Thanks for looking!
