Lovely watercolor, Wulf! Do you do one for every day in your journal?

My thing today was a photography project - I wanted to try to get some good pictures of the goldfinches that have been enjoying my bird feeders this winter. I counted 25 out there today, which is a record for my house! I bundled myself up in very warm clothes and lay flat on top of my car so I wouldn't be too noticeable and threatening. I finally had to come inside because my toes were getting numb, but here are my best pictures:

I just got partnered with your mom for the paper & ephemera swap. The last time I did a similar swap you were my partner. Do you have any other family members on Craftster for me to swap with?  Grin

I remember that, kb, how fun! I'd say if you swap with ChameleonHound, my sister from another mister, you've collected the whole set. Cheesy

As for my thing today - when in doubt, more quilt triangles! I got 46 today, so now I'm at 136/350.

13  Re: 2016 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by Acadian Driftwood on: February 12, 2016 01:40:50 PM
I finished a 100% stash project yesterday! A Valentine's Day gift for my partner. Here's the full thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=443379.0

The embroidery was already done, and I raided my scrap basket for a few fabrics that matched the thread. Sewed up the pillow case, AND made my own throw pillow base out of a sheet and stuffing I had kicking around. I'm counting this as red theme and love theme!

Averia, I love fabric storage where you can see all the patterns! Yours looks great.

My 11th thing is a pillow that I'm giving my partner for Valentine's Day. I made its own post with more details and pictures. The embroidery was already done, but I pieced the pillow case today.

15  Vermont + Virginia lattice stitching in Needlework: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: February 11, 2016 07:40:53 PM
So I was born in Vermont, and my partner was born in Virginia. My idea for this piece was to match up the two cities by overlaying the state outlines, and mixing the color schemes for each one where they overlap, the way our two lives are now mixed. Is that too much sap?

I learned three different lattice fills, and I gotta say it's pretty fun to watch them take shape as you go! Check out Needle n' Thread - that's where I found the ones I used.

I actually did the stitching almost a full year ago, and I finally got it together to finish the piece by making a pillow that I'll give him for Valentine's Day.

I tried to pull in all the colors from the thread, and used a few things from my scrap stash. I like how it turned out, and hope he does too!

It's just throw pillow sized, 10 by 15 inches. The back is envelope style.

Thanks for checking it out!

This might be ridiculous, but I'm counting making this blanket fort for my thing today. It's formed out of a couch, futon, upside-down chairs, two blankets on the top, and lots of pillows and blankets inside! Also twinkly lights.

It's the perfect place to cuddle up on a cold, snowy day!

Thanks everyone for the comments on my hoop! I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but there are 3 different reds making the lattice. It was fun to do!

I received an adorable little mixed media art piece from geekgirl1000100. It's one of my favorite birds, the kingfisher!

Thanks again geekgirl, it's hanging right by the window in my craft room.

Origami's a great idea for this craftalong! I might try that for one of my things.

I finally got a picture of my thing for day 8 - sixteen half-pints of grapefruit marmalade! I actually had to re-do them yesterday because they were too syrupy. Now I'm afraid they might be too sugary? Marmalade is hard! They're pretty anyway.

dulcet, I want to see a little totoro rainbow! Very cute projects.

Still haven't gotten a picture of yesterday's thing, because I had to re-do it today. Grrr... marmalade wouldn't set... anyway I think it's fixed now, so I'll get the pic tomorrow.

Besides fixing the marmalade today, I cut 47 more triangles for my quilt! After having this project on my to-do list for such a long time, now that I've started it's full speed ahead!

I'm jumping back into this thread! I love little things, and birds. I did this lattice cardinal for the OTT Bird 2 swap.
