I can't wait until the first patches reach their destinations! The gallery needs some love Smiley

And, I just packed up all of my supplies for this weekend (except for a few items I need to purchase... because I swear I own them but cannot find them)! I have a box dedicated to fabric and a second box dedicated to the rest of the supplies Smiley I'm itching to get started on them!

I am fighting the need for a nap, but I need to grade some papers! I hate to grade papers when I'm tired, so I might attempt to print on freezer paper-backed fabric in my laser printer. I have 2 images I want to try, but I need to dig out some fabric, first.

Well, the first piece of fabric jammed, but I was able to get a successful print on the second piece. Unfortunately, I forgot to reset the printer, so it printed the first image on the second fabric. Fortunately, the second fabric was white...

So, not only did I learn the best way to print on fabric using my laser printer, I also did crayon tinting for the first time Smiley

Now, I need to dig out something else for one of the patches. If I can find it tonight, I can do another step of prep work for my patches. And, hopefully, I can crank out all of the patches I need to make (4 for the swap and a few others) this weekend!

Finally starting to actually stitch my Research Project.  Ack, I feel so slow, I stitch like a cripple!   Tongue



LOL! I'm sure it's only because you're new at it...

Wink

And, I'm working on putting together my supplies for my annual Craft Weekend. Most of it will be spent making TM patches, but I'm also going to make my October Battle item. I'm tempted to bring additional projects (I usually bring at least 6 different projects), but since I haven't done any grading of those pesky papers, I'll probably have to bring them along Sad I guess I can work on them early in the morning, since I'm usually one of the first to wake up, and then I can craft for the rest of the day... And, when I'm tired at night, I can alphabetize them.

But, just in case I finish early, maybe I should bring one extra project... just a tiny one... Grin

The smallspine spookfish! Okay, maybe it's not a cryptid, but it's pretty cool anyway Smiley

I might have to play around with a couple of techniques, because I want to do 2 very specific things, and I'm not sure if one of them will work... I'll be toting my sewing machine along with me this weekend, so I might have to bring some scrap fabric to experiment with... I can see it so clearly in my head!

Last night, while driving back to my hometown, I started thinking about a cryptid skirt... and completely missed the exit for the gas station (I did stop somewhere else, so all was good). On the way home, I wanted to stop at the same gas station to get a snack (they have a Dunkin' Donuts), but I started thinking about the skirt again, and I missed the exit again...

I'm thinking that I most definitely need to design and sew a cryptid skirt... Well, since I designed most of it in my head last night, I really just need to sew one... I have to look up a technique first, but then I think I could do it!

Okay, now you've got me thinking with that Kraken skirt idea! I don't often wear skirts, but how cool would a cryptid skirt be? I can picture Nessie wrapped around the skirt, or a forest of trees with Bigfoot hiding amongst them, or mountains and a Yeti...

I will take one of each please LOL

It's been ages (and ages) since I sewed a piece of actual clothing...so that would fall outside of my comfort zone...which is a good thing Smiley

The counter is only three feet tall. The others are afraid of heights, even that low Tongue

I think it's more to do with how high up my head is off the ground. Even though it's only a 3 foot counter, my head senses that it's at least 8 feet of the ground, so that's when the vertiginous feelings kick in Smiley

Inselaeffchen- What cute tags! I like how the spider is embossed to give it texture.

artsycandice- I can't wait to see what you come up with for your Christmas bag!

gozer- Great skirt! Excellent fabric, too! I love how in the main picture you can't tell that they're skulls.

Ludi- Best.Ninni.Ever! I never would have thought to give a Ninni tentacles!

calliemae- I love that your owl has a bowtie and interchangable hats. How cute!
