11  Re: Lap Quilt Swap 5 CLOSED - Send 10/8/2009 for fabric; 12/22/2009 for blocks in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by shout4joy on: January 14, 2010 05:41:09 AM

According to my records (which could very well  be wrong), I am still awaiting blocks from:
  • gingerquilts
If any of you have sent my block back, please just let me know and I will double-check my pile.  Again, my records could very well  be incorrect!

Thanks, all!

I sent your block out...I sure hope you received it by now!

It looks like this:

12  applique on a backpack (large image, sorry!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shout4joy on: December 31, 2009 06:57:48 AM
I am not sure this goes here...but it fits better than other categories.

I did NOT make the backpack. We bought a ton of these many years ago (dd#1 took one to K...and she is almost 21) and still have a few floating around.

I put this applique on the backpack for a guy friend of dd#1 at college. I wasn't sure what else a guy would like that was not too personal (especially from a friend's MOM!).

He likes Celtic Crosses...but I didn't want to spend forever doing the weaving of a design, so I went this route. I doodled this up and did it mostly freehand. My applique did a little twisting *sigh* but overall I'm pleased and I've been reassured that he will like it.

Thanks for looking Smiley

here is the best shot of the brown spots...they are more obvious in person than in the photos, I just can't get the camera to see what I see  Tongue

As the soap darkens, they don't bother me as much as they did at first and the soap smells SO good Smiley

14  soaping again :) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by shout4joy on: November 02, 2009 10:55:31 AM
I haven't made soap for months and months. I had to get some CP soap made for the holidays coming up so I pushed myself to get some done. I had the soap fairy visit on Monday Sad but I think we survived the visit and this is what I came up with:

top row: fresh laundry, three kings, lavender lane

bottom row: sandalwood/vanilla, mandarin spice, orchard breeze, oats n' honey

Since I hadn't soaped in so long, some of my shea butter and all my mango butter was bad - phew - stinky! I am out of cocoa butter now and will need to reorder some other supplies, BUT I didn't have to buy much at all to crank out 7 batches.

Does anyone have any guesses as to why my sandalwood/vanilla would have dark spots in it (hardly noticeable in this pic)? The only thing I did differently was to add some silk...could that cause really dark brown spots? It doesn't smell funny and it isn't oozing...

Monday Update

nothing new in making blocks. I have a craft show coming up near the holidays and needed to make soap...so last week I taught children and made soap during the day and spent my evenings at the theater rehearsing for last weekend's reader's theater productions. I barely even looked at my machines, much less got any quality sewing time Sad

Here is the soap I made last week:

top row: fresh laundry, three kings, lavender lane
bottom row: sandalwood/vanilla, mandarin spice, orchard breeze, oats n' honey

I'll be doing the craft show with my sister, she has been maing another bunch of batches of soap Smiley

17  two doll quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by shout4joy on: September 01, 2009 05:43:22 AM
I participated in two different doll quilt swaps on the internet...from different sites...and produced these two quilts:

This one was for my sister (how cool is that? I got her name!) She loves pinwheels and I chose colors that are prevalent in her sewing room/family room (same room). The blocks are 4" so the pinwheels are 2"

this is a stack and whack that I had to do a lot of math on to shrink it down (the blocks are 2 1/2") to doll quilt size.

18  The "I Devour Books" bag for dd in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shout4joy on: July 31, 2009 07:14:14 AM

my dd fell in love with this purse (that I made)

but she doesn't like to carry a purse. She DETESTS carrying a purse

So for her 16th birthday, I made her a book bag:

and a wee bit closer:

I forgot to take pictures of the inside, which I lined with a dinosaur themed fabric and the pocket on the back with a parasaulophus (her favorite dino)...and she took off this morning to help decorate for VBS, taking the bag with her (how dare she when I needed another picture or two?Huh).

She loves it Smiley *WHEW!* it is not always easy to please the teen Wink

I received from Lmcbride last Thursday while I was packing up from vacation, so didn't even take pictures until late yesterday - sorry for the picture quality

the pictures don't show it clearly, but the blocks are Cathedral Window blocks which are traditionally not made with batting (she followed tradition here) and she added yo-yos in a fun ginham to the intersections and beaded some of the blocks. Black and red is a combo that I really like Smiley

20  two swimsuits in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by shout4joy on: June 13, 2009 02:42:25 PM
I'm not excited about how I look in a swimsuit (I need to shed a few pounds  ) but I made one for me and one for my dd who is embarrassed to be seen in anything that isn't layered and very loose...and we both like fairly modest suits - with an inseam!

Please excuse the fuzzy pictures, I'm not re-taking them

This one is mine. A two-piece. I made a shorts style bottom from a "modest" swimwear pattern and the top is a vintage swimdress pattern that has princess seams and vents front and back.

this one is my dd's. She asked to be decapitated for sharing the picture  Grin Hers is a mixture of shorts bottom from that same "modest" swimwear pattern and a bodice modified from a vintage pattern.

C & C welcome.
