Horrible picture, but I want to thank Alliekat914 for my swap package!  She asked me for a review of the Brother Scan'n Cut and then sent me a new cutting mat.  It's super-long and should be great for those larger projects!

My package arrive this afternoon from Alliekat914.  Thank you!  You just said you were going to send "supplies" so I had no clue what it might be.  I have had this terrible itch the past couple days to try something in watercolors - I was getting desperate and thinking of just using some regular cardstock (I *think* I have a child's watercolor paint set around here somewhere).  It's a gorgeous day and I'm now torn between spending it outside and painting ... maybe I should just set up to paint outside  Grin  Cheesy Roll Eyes  You picked the perfect supplies to send - thank you Allison!!

Oh my goodness!  Our package arrived yesterday and my husband commented that our daughter had to patiently wait two whole hours for Mama to come home before it was opened (puzzled-penguin graciously addressed it to my 5-year-old  Smiley )

We did not agree to spoil ... and she said she sent just a little something extra.   Shocked  My word, woman, what would you send if you DID spoil?!  We were completely amazed!

It's a bad picture, but what she included:
  • a Frozen/Elsa headband with a beautiful fabric flower
  • a Lambert the Sheepish Lion embroidery hoop (I am so keeping this one for myself!!)
  • an awesome Tinkerbell apron, complete with a little vial of pixie dust (beads)
along with some Frozen stickers and various Disney postcards.  She even had Mickey Mouse tissue paper.  I'm in awe of your Disney-ness.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We had a little fairy / snow queen running around the house last night; she added fairy wings and sparkly shoes for an added touch.

Meanwhile, my I'm finished with my main item, but need to finish boxing and addressing.  I'm going to see if I can find a few little extras to send too, because you were an incredible swap partner Smiley Wink Grin

Here are my projects from the last couple of days.  These are bigger projects but the first two were partially finished and I just needed to get in gear to complete them.

A freezer paper sweatshirt requested for my sister's birthday.

Some socks for my brother-in-law.  I "finished" them a couple of days ago but had yet to weave in the ends.

Playing around with some stitch marker ideas.  Technically these aren't done - I still want to glaze them and I need to add the top rings.

6  King of Kings in Stenciling: Completed Projects by cmouse01 on: February 04, 2016 01:53:18 PM
My sister's birthday was last week but I won't see her until this coming weekend.  Meanwhile, I'm dying to show this off!

She loves lions and requested I make her a sweatshirt with a lion and this wording.  I did the freezer paper stencil technique.

8  Re: 50 Projects 2015 --POST YOUR 2015 Lists in Craftalongs by cmouse01 on: November 03, 2015 10:30:30 AM
I updated my list for October and realized I've managed 109 projects this year!  Whoo-hoo

My latest projects were mostly related to my Halloween costume.  Papa found a princess dress at a thrift shop so I was free-and-clear on DD's costume this year.  Because we've been watching a LOT of Phineas & Ferb lately, I decided to dress up as Perry the platypus.

I painted his face on some fabric and temporarily sewed it on a shirt (so I didn't "waste" a shirt ... although it would be fun to have Perry all the time).  I crocheted a tail, a fedora that went all flat and limp when I washed it Sad and also mini Phineas & Ferb that I pinned to my shirt.

So you don't go into picture-overload, I'll just mentioned that I finished some dishcloths, a few hats, and this cute little pumpkin.

AIMR - squee on the chicken blocks;  I love them!!

carolmb - I love your blocks, especially the Disney ones!

sheepBlue - how fancy do you want them?  Here is what I did for my daughter's room.  Her one window faces west and I was concerned as she reached toddler age that the summer nights would be too bright and she wouldn't want to fall asleep.  I really wanted blackout curtains but they are expensive.  Plus, I had already found a flannel sheet that I cut in half to make her curtains; it cost me 50 at the thrift store and the colors were perfect!

Here's how I improvised - I had decided to make them in the fall, which around here is the time that all the fabric stores have fabulous discounts on fleece material.  So I bought some pink fleece, hemmed it and attached to the flannel with snaps so it would be removable if we wanted.  It also eliminated the need to have a second curtain rod.

The only "problem" is that when you have both curtains closed, it gives the room a pinkish hue.  Not a problem for a young girl though Smiley

I'm amazed at how well it helps cut down the light, but the fleece also keeps out the cold from the window!

I finished my first two-at-a-time socks!  I've been wanting to learn the magic loop and TAAT for a while now because the last time (only time) I made socks I ran into the dreaded "second sock syndrome" ... where you finish one socks and get all excited only to realize you have to start over again to make the 2nd.  I used the Silver's Sock class and used different colors to help me keep track of which sock I was working on.

Now I should be able to tackle the sock yarn in my stash and finally make my BIL the socks he's been bugging me about for 2 years.
