What a pretty color combo, that1girl! And, I'm impressed with your rate of square production! Are those 12" blocks? Looking forward to seeing the final product Smiley

I hope you can join us again!

Today, I was not nearly as productive as I hoped. But, it seems we're due to get walloped with a storm Monday through Tuesday night, so it's possible (more than it has been so far this year) that we'll have a snow day on Tuesday (and possibly Wednesday). So, I'll definitely have some pre-swap patch making time on my hands! Especially if the power goes out... I can stitch patches while bundled up in a sleeping bag Cheesy

Tomorrow, we're expecting a snowstorm, and if I hadn't been sick with a horrible cold a week and a half ago (and its effects still linger), I would be all caught up with grading notebooks and assignments. Instead, sadly, I had to lug home almost 100 notebooks, plus a crate of assignments. And, while the storm did cause our big school fundraiser to be postponed, giving me a full day for grading, I'd rather be playing with patches! One of these days, when we have a snowstorm, I'll actually get to spend it crafting without guilt!

If I get  my butt in gear early enough tomorrow, I may have some free time on Sunday evening, and perhaps a patch would be just the thing... perhaps a 6-side crystalline snowflake would be in order?

Anybody have a suggestion for a good size for the buttons for it?
1 inch buttons are the perfect size Smiley

Thanks! I'll try to pick some up on Friday afternoon Smiley

Tonight, I had planned to do a smidgen of crafting. Also, correcting and a bit of cleaning. Instead, I searched through a bunch of boxes on a mission to locate some crocheted (not by me) market bags (to donate to our team's raffle basket for our school's big Winter Carnival). I managed to find them and also dug out my next project to finish (for the January Battle). And, while it doesn't seem like I accomplished much tonight, I did do some laundry while I was digging through the boxes, and I started sorting the boxes a bit better (I now have 3 labeled boxes: general crafts, yarn, fabric). Sadly, I managed to pack up my brand new CD, which was blended into a stack of old CDs. Guess I'll have to wait to listen to it since I won't have time to dig it out until February Tongue  I also went through my list of planned projects and settled on what I'm actually going to craft (I had options for a few prompts). And, if I have the proper size T-shirt in my stash, I can make everything without spending additional money!

LOL, alwaysinmyroom! Sorry about the Packers! I won't be making any Patriots hats either, because it would be faster for me to buy one Grin

The Phannie came out great, however! And, good tip on the bigger hook!

I stitched up the Women's Peaked Cap during the Pats game on Sunday, but couldn't locate my button stash. Once I either find them or pick up a set, I'll weave in the 2 tails, stitch on the buttons and be good to go!

Anybody have a suggestion for a good size for the buttons for it?

Nice journal! I also prefer the ones without lines, but until I use the ones I have, I won't tempt myself into making more. Although, I have been known to stockpile extra copies of handouts I use in school, especially the ones with interesting stuff (maps, cool pics, etc.) on one side.

Well, I made another hat this weekend, but it's not quite finished because I can't find my buttons. I don't know if I want to use it for a prompt, since I have all of my project ideas picked out and I want to make sure I finish them (several have been bumped off the list multiple times).

But, I can't believe how many projects have been posted in such a short time!

bunny1kenobi, great idea to make Christmas tags ahead of time. I always mean to make tags, and then I run out of time. Neat embellished keys, too. Somewhere, I have a bag of old keys, so I could definitely do something like this. What will you do with them? And, your Red Riding Hood shoes are AMAZING! I love how subtly cool they are!

Ludi, I like the "Only Weakness" magnet. I used to watch a TV show, and one of the main characters was forever proclaiming things to be her "one weakness" and I always laughed, so I might have to make myself something similar! And, kudos for the web pages! I know how much work that can be to get the details right! And, your research project came out amazing! And, now, I understand why you were afraid to cut into it, but it produced such a cool result!

vincentvanbuck, I really love your fabric combinations on your stockings! Choosing coordinating fabrics is always difficult for me, but you seem to have a knack for it. And, I love all of your necktie upcycles! I bought a bunch at the thrift store to make a skirt or something, but they've been stuffed in a box- now I have a few more ideas for them! Cute perler bead creations, too (again, I need to try my hand at them, because, of course, I have all of the supplies somewhere! Smiley ). Great Tardis box, too- I love how the different types of stitching produce different effects.

Calabaza, bummer about your brittle! I've only had truly good homemade brittle once or twice. I tried it once and it wasn't great (but we still ate it!). I like your mason jar pincushion and, now that I've looked up fabric stamps, I might have to start saving up appropriate scraps... such a cute idea! And, the Noodle Thing looks delicious and it's great that you finally got the recipe! And, clever interpretation for Egypt (and I love pancakes!).  And, another great macaron purse- great fabric placement! And, way to connect the pancakes to the prompt!

Mountains and Clouds, I love the Blythe mu'u mu'us. Nice job on a small scale! I completely understand the creepy eye thing, too (which is why I don't have a Blythe Smiley ). How big are they, because if they're the size I think they are, you did an excellent job making small scale origami cranes (cute pic of the dolls with them, BTW). And, great job on the knot bags- that pattern is on my list and I think you just helped me to move it up a notch Smiley  Cute tree dotee, too! Good job on finishing your scarf! I like the color combo! And, I hope your Dammit Doll didn't get too badly beat up- that was a heartbreaker of a game for the Packers fans!

elliot_anne, cute penguin cards, and good for you for finally breaking out the Cricut! I love, love, love the seahorse! What a cool design (I might have to go and check them out over on UT). Love the zombie bear, especially that you made some of his stuffing guts exposed! Cute dragon, too! I'm impressed that you're working your way through the alphabet.

jillybeans, I have a loom and might have to try a cowl, because yours look great! Your Curious George shirt is excellent- great job freehanding the details!

rockingbearranch, nice collage ATC, and wouldn't it be cool if lions really had antlers? Fun paper dolls! I love making them! And, I can't wait to see the whole hoopla!

gozer, how great are you that you made a warm place for your neighbor's cat?! So kind of you! Love the Bride necklace, too (which reminds me, I need to finish reading Frankenstein!). Nice job on the bookmarks, too, but I think the necklace for bunny1kenobi is the BEST! I love how it's not in-your-face obvious, but totally cute and clever! Great ATC, too- I love how vibrant it is! Beautiful scarves with beautiful fabrics! You must have an awesome stash! Great "vintage" shirts! I love how they look like the stenciling on a wine crate.

FreakieGeekie, love the pink camo bag (and I laughed when I read all of the follow-up comments... at lunch the other day we just had a discussion about how NH is another world in terms of hunting culture, so pink camo would probably be a big hit there!).

Smeddley, excellent job designing your own box in the Silhouette software! And hooray for learning how to use it so soon after you got it! It is my favorite crafting tool, and I still haven't used it to its full capacity! Excellent job on the wallet! I need to make one, but I basically need something for holding the stack-o-cards, so a wallet wouldn't be the best for me (I should just hole punch them and put them on a ring... hmmmm...).

Wile E Songdog, I know exactly what you mean! When I sign up for a new swap, even if I'm in the middle of another swap, my brain starts churning out ideas for the new swap and I end up losing focus on the old one Smiley

Thanks! It looks less spooky in person... I was thinking it needed a hawk flying in the sky, but now, maybe it needs a swarm of bats! But, I should probably just leave it alone so I don't screw it up Tongue
