21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Re: Hoopla A-Long on: September 23, 2013 07:49:53 AM
The floss is just normal DMC. It might look shiny because I trace my patterns onto cling wrap and then stitch through it, tearing it off when done. I managed to finish all the spirals last night and work was kind enough to give me extra time of this week (note lots of sarcasm as reduced hours mean reduced paycheck  Sad ) so I should have no problem finishing it and my wooden hoops should arrive today!

Hope your partner receives soon too, the worst part about swaps is the waiting!

I know I have been MIA form this thread since saying I wanted to join, but since I acquired a new job I felt the need to spend more time stitching and less time chatting. Smiley Finally started on this month hoop yesterday so here's my limited progress pic. I am hoping with a little bit of time every night this week (hubby is working extra) I will get it done before the month ends!

I just finished the Doctor Who stitch a-long hosted at Fandom in Stitches and have decided that I would rather stitch more designs than finish the quilt  Undecided So I figured I might as well join another "a-long" so that I have an excuse! I already have a design in mind, so not sure I need the excuse but here I am none the less... And there is the point that I have been MIA from Craftster for so long that I needed to find an in.  Wink
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dresser to Desk on: April 04, 2012 08:18:20 AM
We bought this dresser for my daughter when she was a toddler (about 10 years ago) and it finally became to small to hold everything and since her desk was "little kid" size as well I took the dresser and turned it into a "big girl" (don't tell her I said that!) desk.


It turned out to be a lot easier than I expected, the hardest part was waiting for drying times.  Grin
And since I used the hardware from the the dresser the only thing I had was the paint and polyacrylic.


She picked out the stencils and I used the paint we had leftover from painting her room:


I also gave her a chalkboard square (2 tablespoons unsanded grout and between 3/4 and a cup of any paint)


There are more progress pictures and information on my blog if anyone is interested.

Thanks for looking!

Those are super cute!

If you want an alternative method to melting old candles, you can melt them in their original glass containers, just place the container in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes.

Since my husband is in the military we have moved away from many of your friends. One of my friends has been having a rough year and I wanted to be able to give her a hug. So I made her this and sent it out without telling her.



In addition to the rules/goals of the challenge I wanted to use more stash or personal items and do less shopping, so the blocks I used are actually mine from when I was a kid! The only things I ended up buying were the red paint and the glue. The short details: I spray painted all the blocks black, painted on the white and red details with acrylics, glued them around the frame, gave it a clear coat and inserted scrapbook paper into the frame (inserting the chocolates was the hardest, only because I wanted to eat them).



I made sure when I put it together that I did it right-side up so it could be used as either a small candy dish or as a picture frame.



My friend actually got it in the mail yesterday was was super surprised and happy! I love it when I can make someones day!

If anyone is interested in the how-tos of it I posted it in my blog: http://yellowhouseon3rd.blogspot.com/2012/02/random-acts-of-crafty-kindness.html

When I paint random things I use acrylic paints and then finish with a couple coats of clear spray. If you are going to paint things to go outside I recommended a UV clear coat (last time I found one was at a Home Depot)to prevent discoloration.
