2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lavender Heart on: August 10, 2017 02:28:27 PM
I stitched this up last weekend after being extremely sick and losing my pup, Jujube.  It was very calming to just stitch (especially since I was on bedrest). I swore to myself I would never stitch another anatomical heart, but this pattern spoke to me.
3  Category Challenges / Needlework Challenge Entries / Life is a Beach Needlework Challenge Due September 8-15, 2017 on: August 08, 2017 12:33:44 PM

You don't have to say goodbye to summer when you stitch up this adorable bathing beauty from Sew Lovely Embroidery! They have designed this cute pattern for the Needlework Challenge.

The pattern is in the next post below.

You can combine your stitching with any other media or material but it has to have a stitching component  (cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery) to it. You can also alter the pattern.

Now for the fine print:

Craft your project during this challenge period (August 8-September 7 ) only.  Projects created before this time frame will be excluded from the voting poll.

Each participant can enter ONE project.

 Post your craft during the period of September 8-15th. No sooner.  No later.  On September 8th I will instruct you on how to post your craft.

Voting will happen from September 9-17, 2017

The winner will be officially announced on September 18, 2017.

If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

The winner will receive a Craftster T-shirt and 4 awesome Sew Lovely patterns of their choice.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Craftster Quickies: SLIME! on: August 07, 2017 08:45:58 AM

I had so much fun making the craft for the latest installment of Craftster Quickies. I seriously tried a ton of recipes but the easiest one turned out the best.  I remember slime from when I was a kid and getting in so much trouble for getting in our shag carpet, soooo. my warning to you this month:
If you have lime green shag carpet in your house, keep the slime away from it.



And because I couldn't resist!

The peeps on Craftster are the best ever! As a thank you to a very special person, I made this happy little monster for her. He just wants a big hug. The pattern was free (I can't remember where I found it, but I'm sure I can find it if anyone is interested). I altered it just a little bit.

One day Mistress Jennie and I will have a nice cup of tea then take down the system. I stitched this up for her for the feminist swap. I may need to make one for myself.

There is a little girl who is an internet sensation. She was kidding around and said this line. My immediate thought was, "this girl is my spirit animal."
