I wish I could join this. I love scrappy square quilting, it's my favourite of all favourites Smiley.
When I've done strip quilting where I'm cutting into strips of squares, the stitching opens up along the newly snipped seam allowance if the seam is pressed open. Pressing to one side can minimize that, I think that's why it's done. Otherwise what are you to do to prevent it, double stitch every seam? Maybe one of you more experienced quilters has a solution to share... Wink.

Yes! This 206 page post on wee houses that's been going strong since '11 is stuck in miscellaneous! There's enough interest to warrant a board of it's own... Wink

Is there any chance this could happen now? It could be a combo miniatures, shrines, etc board...

Bravo, excellent job!
What I love best about this is that the pattern was created by my very oldest childhood friend's young cousin, an adorable tyke I used to babysit at the cottage and take swimming. She's all grown up now and quite the crafty lady Smiley.
It's a gorgeous pattern and so far looks terrific on every size and shape I've seen it on. Let's hope I get around to making it myself for next summer and that it looks as good on me as it does on you!

You know, I have had that blog bookmarked for YEARS and denim (cut up) that I've been schlepping around for YEARS too, lol. Good for you for finally busting that project, great job! And yes, a giant blue denim whale pillow does sound awesome (and a terrific way to use up more of the denim stash, yay!). I may join you.
That gives me ideas about a giant stuffy craft-along. I bet lots of people have had a hankering to stitch up an oversized something-or-other floating around in their crafty noggins. I can't just be me and you, no ways no hows. Not on this site, lol!

Beautiful blocks! A friend asked me to help make her mom's old clothes into quilted cushion covers as mementos for family so I'm collecting ideas for that project Smiley.
I went through my whole stash. Every little bit of it. Half donated or pitched out, 2 boxes to mail off to other crafters, everything sorted, binned and labelled. I brought home a few small things that just need a little repair.
You know what? I have an awesome collection of tools and what I consider a reasonable number of UFOs and planned projects. I can't believe it. That only took about 10 years of destashing, ha ha!

Missed you guys too, so much! Craftster is the only crafting site I visit online you know. I am not much for technology but this place is something special Smiley.

The small girl and I went to a felting class today, not that I need a class but sometimes it's good to get group focus and it was a nice intro for the girl. We made the cutest things, a piggy and 2 chickens with a nest. And a carrot, really teeny weeny, I'll explain when I can get some pictures together, lol. It was super fun (only stabbed myself 3 times) and we used a teensy weensy bit of roving stash up. But then I bought more, so we'd have all the colours we might ever, ever need for any future unplanned projects, ha! Good thing I'm a proficient destasher! I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to using up more than I take in! I have plans to go through that studio ruthlessly though. I know me, I will not actually craft in all those mediums, I just like knowing that if I wanted to take up something new I'd have ALL the supplies to do it. Bit OCD. You all know what I'm talking about... Wink

OH! And we visited the knitting shop down the street after and both kids got interested in spinning! The lady there offered them a free lesson if we purchase drop spindles, I could barely get them out of there to come home and start dinner. We'll go back. I see more fiber arts in our future. I've always wanted a spinning wheel and a proper loom... Bwah ha ha!

Jumping in...

I've been paying rent on a little studio down the street for 2 months now and finally got into it and did a little sorting. Oh. My. Stash that's been in the basement, in the shed, at the cottage, in storage, and jammed into all sorts of nooks and crannies is all in one spot and wow. I have to purge if I expect to have enough room to move in that space let alone craft. I'll be taking my 2 little homeschoolers over there for some lessons in hot glue gun wielding etc and cracking open some bins myself. My camera is ready, wish me luck!

Incredible. Not only wonderfully built, the story got me a little teary too. You're a gem, what a friend to that small person you are Smiley.
