1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Land of the Midnight Sun on: January 25, 2015 07:55:53 PM

This is my response to Project Quilting 6.2 Sunrise/sunset. It is made from some fabric I got in Alaska last summer along with some background fabric that mysteriously appeared in my stash.  No really.  I have no idea where, why or when I bought it!  But it works for this project so I'll call it a win. 

Pattern is Delectable Dog Sleds by Lisa Moore (yes!  I followed a pattern!)  It measures 19 x 50 inches and is machine pieced and quilted.  I am NOT good at stitch in the ditch.  It took forever!

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / more trees on: January 25, 2015 07:47:52 PM

A quick quilt finish for a donation to a great organization.  This is made from scraps of my other 'River Birch' projects.  It measures 13 x 15 inches and has fast finish triangles for hanging.
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / As long as we are talking FSL (lace earrings) on: January 21, 2015 05:30:31 PM

Sorry the picture is so terrible.  This is a pair of FSL earrings.  It is a Showalter design.  I've made about 100 pairs of various lace earrings.  

These are from Urban Threads... of course.  I haven't tried digitizing FSL yet.  
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / FSL Snowflakes on: January 21, 2015 02:15:58 PM

I made a bunch of these last year.  It is an Urban Threads design.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Babushka Doll on: January 20, 2015 05:50:08 AM

Here is another one of my digitizing projects.  It is trickier than it should be to get the applique parts to work out properly.   And I am still working on getting the proportions right so that she feels right. 

This one is much closer with a narrower base and an elongated head.  Once I get this one finalized, I am going to make a dent in my scrap pile! 
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Whales Wear Glasses, Don't They? on: January 19, 2015 07:36:23 PM

I've been working on my digitizing... finally figured out how to do it manually. Now I am all about the in-the-hoop projects. Thus the whale wearing glasses stuffie!
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Orphan Trees on: January 11, 2015 07:07:30 PM

This is my first finish of 2015!  Project Quilting Season 6.1  Trees.

The finish is the little purple quilt.  It is an orphan block I made for the larger green quilt in the background.  Poor Spud one.  Spud three carefully considered then rejected the purple block.  It needed to become a quilt all on its own.

Machine pieced and quilted.  Hand stitched binding.  Fast Finish Triangles for hanging.  About 25 x 18 inches. 

If you haven't checked out Project quilting on Flickr or Challenge Quilts on FB you should.  It is a fun way to jumpstart your creative quilting mojo.  The general idea is that you get a prompt and then one week to produce a finished quilted project of any size.  It is amazing to see what can get done in just 7 days.

There are a few more pictures and some details here. 

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Sweet Little Mittens on: December 07, 2014 06:29:45 PM

This is a close up of one of the many pairs of mittens I have made this season.  I digitized the mitten but the snowflakes are from Emblibrary. 

Here you can see the pair of mittens connected by cording.

Then I got the notion to add the year and make some in pink. 
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Forget the Pickle. Find the Zombie! on: December 07, 2014 06:24:46 PM

Looking for the pickle ornament is so last century.  I figured it was time to search for the Zombie ornament!

Then look for the goofy Gingerbread man...

... and this poor guy who seems to be surprised about something.

You can just see some of the hedgies on the wacky tree in this picture.

All in all, I've made about 6 of each of these.  They are all designs from Urban Threads stitched out on felt but made like flat stanleys instead of stuffies.

Oh, and the star at the top of the tree... the face is Urban Threads but the stuffie is all mine.  Made out of fleece. 
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Microbrewery Grain Bag Messenger Bag on: August 30, 2014 06:51:22 PM

Members of my family run a couple microbreweries.  They sent me a box full of grain bags.  I am upcycling them into bags and things.  This is a prototype for a messenger bag. 

I need to mess with the proportions a bit but I do like how the round flap came out.  It currently doesn't have a closure.  Does it need one?  Magnetic? Button?  Velcro?  Suggestions please.
