Yes.  It is machine embroidered.  Totally stupid and too much fun.  Guess what everyone on my list is getting.

Too much cool stuff.  My want to make list just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  So what do I really do?  Something completely goofy. 

Yep.  Monogrammed toilet paper.  But, does it ever look pretty with shiny cellophane and a sparkly black bow!  One for everyone on my Christmas list...  They told me they put monograms on anything that doesn't move in the South and now they have me doing it too! 

At least the monograms are somewhat more tasteful than most of the embroidered TP designs that are out there.  Really.  Try looking paper anniversary patterns.

Thanks all.  I just made a Dresden and blanket stitched it on to felt. 

I think I am at 15 for the year.  At the rate I am going, that will be it.

Belated congrats on the job Mare. Hope you are loving it!

My mind is still spinning about bin numbers and scanned swatches....  EEEP.  I thought I was doing good to get it put into like colored trays and it is still a disaster. 

Amazing quilts everyone.  Last push to get 'em done but this early cold weather ought to help. 

Here is one I can finally share. 

It was for a swap.

Thanks all.  I will see what I can do to add a place setting.  Great suggestion.

And again, more awesome projects.  After I get through this show season, I will be back commenting on individual projects.  As always, you are an inspiring lot.

I am so hopelessly behind I can't even begin to comment on all the awesomeness you have going on here. 

A few pics of the trial set up of my booth for this weekend. 

My badge display.

A few of the wrapped bangles.

A badly photoshopped picture trying to show samples of the Christmas ornaments.

Spud 3 and the Mister made this awesome mannequin for me.  I still need to put some badges on the upcycled string backpack.

This is what I have to display the upcycled napkins.  I'm not crazy about it and am open to suggestions and ideas.

Wow.  These are terrible pictures and my is a disaster, having been consumed by show prep.  Oh well.  It gives you and idea of the stuff I've been working on.

Picture dump.  Sorry, some of these photos are fuzzy.  I was trying to get pictures at the show with my phone and it just wasn't working.

These are Yetis.  Boy blacksmith is in Nepal building a brewery and unable to attend the event so it seems only fitting that there be yetis and prayer flags.  The yeti design is from Urban Threads.

Chickens and other stuffies.  The little rodent snuck in, he was not supposed to be in the sale but I didn't notice until I got home.  I'll have to pull him tomorrow.  The face on the star is UT.  The face on the blue man is one I digitized.  The patterns are mine.  These are prototypes.  You can't really see the turkey on the right but he is an old project and you've probably already seen him.

I shouldn't include this picture but it is the only one I have that shows the frame full of badges and the rack of sunpainted shirts.  The shirts are not new projects and don't count toward my fifty.  The badges, well there are hundreds of them. 

The wine bottle cozy is a last minute project.  I love the ruler ribbon on them but if they don't like it, it is just a quick snip and they can substitute their own.  These are made from blue jeans.  There is one old and one new pumpkin in the picture.  I made at least a dozen of various sizes this year.  To the right of the wine are a couple of the prayer flags.  I made a few samples and whole bunch of DIY kits.  The lower left show some of the coffee cup cozies I made.  Again, primarily out of old blue jeans.

Hedgehogs, zombies and stars.  The first two are UT patterns intended to be stuffies, but I decided to make them into flatties with ribbons to hang.  More efficient for me that way and I am sick of stuffing from all of the chickens!  The stars are made from.... wait for it.... old blue jeans.  That is a pattern I digitized.    The little orange thing is a creeper printed by boy blacksmith on his 3D printer.  There was a group there doing full body scans and 3D prints. People were making their own mini-mes!

This last picture is the worst of the lot but it is the only one that shows the magic bags and earrings.  I made about 80 pairs of Free Standing Lace earrings using designs from Sonya Showalter (an awesome designer!).  I know you can't see a thing but there are shamrocks, treble clefs, pumpkins, skelatons, spiderwebs, butterflies, dragon flies and cardinals. (it is October in StL after all.)  You can also see the peek-a-boo pals.  Another project I drew and digitized myself.  And another project made out of old blue jeans. 

I didn't get any pictures of the lanyards, market bags, string backpacks or karate kid headbands.  I'll try to do that when I get back tomorrow.  I didn't take candles or soap so no pictures of those either.  I think I blew past 100 projects awhile ago but who is counting anymore.

Two more shows and then maybe I can get back to quilting.  Whew!
