21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sweet and Easy Valentines Day Swap Round 4 (signups Jan20-25; sendouts Feb5) on: February 09, 2015 08:46:46 PM
I am so spoiled that I can't believe it. I received from quaggy today. The time and the detail she put in this package is unbelievable. *Hangs her head in shame for not offering more for her* I will make up the difference in a future swap, to be sure. And all the pretty Valentine papers. I was careful to unwrap things, so you will see them in some of my upcoming projects  Grin

Sorry. Late post today. But dinkime totally, and I mean TOTALLY spoiled me. I hope she likes mine as much as I am loving hers. The hoopla is my favorite. She must have really stalked me. "Hit Like A Girl", and she included two drum sticks underneath. So totally cool. I will fawn some more in the gallery when she posts the pictures. {I am a female drummer, by the way}. Thank you, Becky. You went way over the edge for me. This has totally lifted my spirits  Grin

Mine is still unwrapped, but plenty of time to go. I want to make sure in my next weeks cleaning that I might find other items to include. I might need a bigger box  Cheesy A member mentioned 20 as the "Magic" number of items. Good thing I have fingers AND toes  Grin. I already have more than that set aside. But I will cull through things and send my favorites for this project.

26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Merry Christmas Mom! on: February 07, 2015 10:11:31 AM
That is a very lovely quilt. I like how you used the embroidery in there. And yes, those are normally dishtowel patterns. But they look great the way you used them, too. I like your overlap of hands in your last photo. Very interesting idea for a signature block.

Project Name: An Ornament from the Christmas Tree

Brief Description: On New Years Day we took down the Christmas tree, a tiny little scrub of a cedar, and I cut 4 off the stem.  I used my bench sander to sand the edges smooth.  I used my band saw to trim a branch off the back, and a slice off the front, then used my bench sander to smooth them.  I drew a tree scene onto the sliced section with pencil and then inked the picture in color.  I learned that sharpies bleed.  I had the kids all write their names onto a piece of copy paper, scanned it into the computer, shrank them down, and printed them back out.  I put graphite on the back of the paper, behind their names, and pressed them onto the back of the ornament.  I then inked them.  I made a hanger from a bit of clothes hanger.  I spray painted bells with textured spray paint.  (they dont ring clear now. Sad  )  I tied a bow around the hanger with sisal rope, and tied the bells onto the bottom edges of the twine.  We will always have a bit of our tree from 2014, and who was here with us this past holiday season.  In their current handwriting.  Smiley  As good as a babys foot print.  Cheesy  My only question is why we haven't been doing this ALL of my life!!! Cheesy
Project Picture:

Sharpies won't bleed if you pre-coat things with a spray fixative. I have been using a Krylon brand of workable fixative. It is good for many fibers. Including wood and papers. You can find it in the area that has watercolor paints and such at your art store. Or sometimes in with the glue section. It is an aerosol can.

Very cute ornament. I hope you keep up the tradition, and make a new one for each year. Nice touch to include the kid's handwriting and names.

"Instant relatives"..you just cracked me up with that one.  Cheesy Grin Cheesy
Those are really nice. I have not tried the kits myself. Perhaps I need to set aside some funds for them. They look like fun.

Very cute. Nice recycle for clothing that you don't want to disappear. The little overalls are a nice touch, too. Perhaps a keepsake for when your son has kids to share them with? To show grandbabies your teddy, and say..Daddy used to wear these, and Grandma, too {for your cheerleading part}.  Grin I don't think the head looks too big.

Mine got sent on time today  Grin Tracking numbers sent to lindy, and my partner. Whew. This week was a rush of stuff. Next week I have to make a few more Valentines, then clean up my mess. This has been a fun swap, though. I got to sort through a bunch of supplies that I forgot that I had. I can't wait to see our gallery  Grin
