I love that crocodile stitch...it is definitely takes some yarn...

I wonder if crocheting around my camera cord would keep it tangle free?  It is annoying me!

lindy...the wreath is so springy!  I love your hoops...that yellow border is just so neatly stitched and really frames the other images...

Here is what I worked on most of March--quilt blocks for a swap:

I love learning new blocks...this round was very challenging since there were some small pieces and paper piecing!  Yeah--took up almost the whole month making these babies! Grin

3  Easter Nut Hunt! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by alwaysinmyroom on: April 01, 2014 06:43:20 AM
My husband and his buddies are really kids at heart.  Each Easter, now that all of the real kids are gone, he complains that he misses the Easter egg hunts.  At their age, these guys do not need the cholesterol and fat in all of those eggs.

Some of the other wives and I decided to have a party this Easter with our own special adult Easter hunt...only instead of eggs, we will have the guys search for nuts!  Much healthier!

I am in charge of the invitations so I decided to make something simple...I drew a path in my yard and hid some nuts in the grassy areas and among the twigs. Can you find the almonds, hazelnutacorn, walnuts and peanut?

I will be taking the card to our local Mom and Pop shop to be reproduced.  They are a nice, conservative couple who will get a laugh at our crazy Easter Nut Hunt!  There will be about 100 people, so I better start buying nuts and thinking about the refreshments and decor!

I've had this art tote pinned for a while and recently got a chance to try my hand when one of the claims I made in the OWS 101 swaps had this on her list!


There was no tutorial or measurements, so I went out and bought the items first and then cut out the fabrics to fit.  The first one was a bit of trial and error, but the second one was easy-peasy!  I added an inside sealable pocket because I know kids like to collect stickers and put their finished art somewhere. I also used an elastic hair band for the loop to hold the thing together.

What I would change is maybe putting a flap closure on the side where the drawing tablet is...it can slide out if the kid swings the tote...other than that, I was very pleased at how my art totes turned out!

Now to see what else I can make from my Pinterest boards!!

Very nice!  lol  I never thought about changing the colors...looks good with your fabrics!

I got my two embroidered hexies done!!  A couple of things:  oops, I was so excited that I took the paper out of one of them, forgetting that I still had to sew it to other hexies...the glued on hexies were very easy to remove so I like it better than the freezer paper or pinning...I did not find that much of a difference using thin cardboard or plain paper pieces...for me, once I ironed them, they seemed to be equally as crisp.

I have not joined any of the flowers since I am not sure what I am making yet...

OK--more pics!  These goodies are from underthemountain.  Oh, there was more that she sent as a "personal" swap but I am only showing what she claimed in this swap...which was still a lot!

She sent some of her cool image printed book pages notecards, a fois bois notecard, and some lovely birch trees notecards. There were tags for my random acts project, blank teeny tiny tags, and three lovely pieces of jewelry!

Some of the loot:

Close up of the necklaces...I just love the heart one but all three are unique!  My sister told me that a TOL necklace was auctioned off at her Habitat for Humanities fundraiser for over $125!!!  Lucky me to to have this gorgeous one on my own!

Close up of the cute hedgehog card:

And, finally, hand dyed yarn!!!  Look at the colors...and so much!!  I can't wait to knit this up!

Thank you so much, UTM!!!  When I post the other goodies in the personal swap, I'll let you guys know so you can swoon with jealousy!

finally got some pics downloaded!

From the incredibly talented Watson07, a fabric match game, a fabulous Tardis stamp, and extras--some fat quarters, some tags,some notecards and a couple of alphabet inchies...the French knots on the "F" are tiny and fabulous!

lol...I had to check and double check, but anyone else notice anything about one of those inchies? Grin Wink

I found the picture I took of the lovely Valentines stuff ActsofCraftiness sent!!  It was on a camera I never use and forgot about!  Phew!  Anyway, I was able to enjoy them this year and packed them away carefully for next year...the hoop will live in my craft room all year.  I just love hearts!  Sorry for the delay in posting a pic, but I am not sorry that you picked me...truly a careful and talented crafter...the work is just beautifully done!

Averia, I think this is my last claim that needed a picture!  This round was incredible...woo hoo...can't wait to see who wins the challenge prize!

lol blue!

The good news:  I finished my one of my embroidered hexies.

The bad news:  the jelly roll I wanted to use is 1-1/2 inches wide, so it is too small to make my hexies!  It is the perfect template side but there is no fabric to turn under...off to the find different fabrics!

I used thin cardboard (the kind that comes free with fat quarters!) and a dab of washable glue.  I basted in back so that I don't have to remove anything.
