Cute coasters! My parents love mike's hard lemonade so I grew up with the packaging around the house and I love the logo!

I've actually had pretty good luck with Canada to USA packages for swaps, usually they arrive early. For some reason Lindy's just took forever though lol I received from kaz814 super fast Smiley She made a fabric plant and pattern weights that can also be heated up in the microwave and used for handwarmers for my mom! My mom has bad circulation but also loves to sew so that was a great surprise Smiley Everything is so cute and I know she will love it! Thank you Kaz!

Another one to cross off my WIP list! So excited, I bought this pattern over a year ago, the fabric over two and just now had a chance to make it! I went with my correct sizing but found I needed to take an extra three inches out of the back! So weird. Anyways, it fits great now and has pockets Cheesy It's hard to see all the darts and gathering in the sub-par photos, sorry! I swear the color of the fabric actually looks appealing.. lol
-Colette pattern: Peony no. 1017

sheepBlue- Thanks for the screen print love! Your tees look great! Oh, and your TM bag too!
kriSmith- Mmmm, dilly beans. The Teesha Moore Nook cover is purdy Smiley
MissingWillow- glorious food! I have never done any canned stuff aside from childhood jam making with my mother. You inspire! And the HP advent calender is great! And the bunny painting is beautiful. I'd hang that baby up in my place with pride!
jillybeans- woah. Those awesome peg people look like a ton of work!!
fantasticmio- I can't believe you made so many dishcloths so quickly. They are adorable! (also, "bribe" lol) Gryffindor scarf!!! *squee*
Tanath- It is! He's not even in the same province as me right now, but the age of interwebs makes anything possible! lol (with this type of artwork anyways Cheesy )
QueenNinjaMonkey- The zombie staking dolls are such a clever idea!
SilverMoon- Everything you post is completely awesome and you are kicking all our WIP list butts!
Ffrogg526- Glad the surgery went well! And that you don't have to wait until April to get a cast Wink

My bro is an amazing artist and asked me if I could screen this original illustration he did onto a bunch of shirts for his friends. I ended up making one for me, my OH, and my dad too because it is just too cool looking! Cheesy

My list:
-WIP: KAT tees (screen shirts collab between myself and one sibling)
-Dress for Castaspella cosplay [orange and yellow version]
-Ghoulia inspired intestine print shirt or tank top
-Colette pattern: Peony no. 1017
-Enter my first spoonflower fabric design contest

As always, you have all been doing some amazing work! And we even have a firework creator on here, WOW! I have been crazy busy for the last while and unable to post anything. San Diego Comic-Con was last week and I was rushing like crazy to finish all my costume pieces before leaving the country to attend. I nearly did so.. but there were a few things I was finishing up the night before in the hotel room.

The other thing is that my employer decided to terminate my job while they knew I was out of the country on vacation and unreachable. It was a horrible thing for them to do and Ive been in the curl up in a ball phase since I got back. I was hoping some of you might be able to suggest some names of fabric companies that design in-house lines or use freelancers because Id like to continue working in textile or graphic illustration if I can. I was told to look into Moda and Camelot Cottons, any other company names you can suggest would be great (I dont quilt so I dont have much interaction with patterned fabrics in my sewing life)!

On to the projects (the photos aren't great but I do plan on shooting the costumes later)!
C.A. Cupid cosplay:
-bow and arrow earrings
-bow and arrow ring
-arm guard
-screened gloves, made using butchers paper traced over a pattern I digitally illustrated
-screened tights, made using a silk screen of a pattern I digitally illustrated
-hair heart headband
-bone wings

Frankie Stein Home Ick cosplay:
-bolt ring

Duela Dent cosplay
-overbust corset
-collar / shoulder pads
-gloves / sleeves
-waist belt with backpack attachment
-flower broach with tube attachment
-hip belt
-skirt / bustle
-leggings / garter straps
-leg warmers

Thank you for letting me take over the thread momentarily with my images! Posting all the hard work I did is making me feel a bit better about life right now.

All the clothes are adorable, I love the skullette fabric too Smiley The jewelry box is so clever!

I received from tapestrymlp yesterday! It took me a day to get the pictures up after having a really bad migraine attack while in public this morning that knocked me out for the day but I am determined to share the epicness!! Smiley She made me an adorable Ghoulia bookmark (which I've already been using non-stop for my research.. can you believe I didn't own a bookmark?? I totally needed one!), a bracelet, super strong magnets, a piano cuff bracelet like Operetta (bottom image), and a mask. YES! A MASK! Just like Operettas!! And it was molded to fit the shape of my face too! I am sooo excited about it Cheesy It fits perfectly and I take a photo when I feel better and have a spare minute. Thank you!!

Sorry it took me a day to put this up, had a really bad migraine attack while in public this morning and it knocked me out for the day. This was my package from Koreena! She sent an amazing knitted hat (which is extra great because the one I was using died a few weeks ago), an adorable fox pincushion and bird pin from my Pinterest which I LOVE, and a toy that I plan on tormenting my OH with Cheesy Sorry it's not the best picture, my head still feels like it might explode!
