22  Herd of Rabbits for door decorating in Easter by quaggy on: March 20, 2016 04:30:51 PM
I have been attempting to destash and had a massive amount of burlap, some foam boards and lots of buttons, glue sticks and ribbon.  I did run out of wire which is sewn inside the ears to make bendable so I had to buy more.  I managed to make a dozen of these which are pretty large and then I cut the rest of the foam board for smaller ones.  I figure these can be used as plant stakes, package ties etc.  Since it is so close to Easter I will probably hang on to the smaller ones until next year and maybe make some wreaths using them as well.

My package arrived yesterday from kittykill and I was totally spoiled!  When asked what I wanted I had requested an embroidered hoop for my wall and wowsers she sent 3.  I love her work it is always flawless!

1st up is this adorable fox wearing it's own nightcap. 

2nd is an amazing hedgehog!

3rd this fun squirrel!

I love the subtleness of the colors that make it pop!  The red mushrooms, blue night cap, green leaves, red berries and just look at that blue ball of yarn.  She even added a heart button.  These are so pretty in person and I know the hours of work spent making all these tiny stitches!

kittykill also sent me an adorable felt brooch in 3 of my favorite colors.  Now I am getting old and my eyes do not see like they once did at first I thought the yellow scalloped edge was ric-rac but no sir it is hand cut scallops!

I also received this rad pair of knee hi socks .....so fun ....funky and me!!!!!!!

These are the cutest socks I have seen in a long while!!!!

I also go some woodland stickers....so pretty...they have gold metallic accents...loving all the animals and mushrooms!

Then just look at this cute set of nesting woodland animals!!!!!!  I have the perfect place in a displace cabinet for these little fellas!

Awe this is just to funny not to share:   When I came home yesterday from work I had a box from zulily......now for those of you that have ordered from this company.....you all know they always put a cute thank you note in the package.   Well...raises her hand.....I have 2 packages on the way from zulily and got a notification that one would arrive on Monday.    So my brain tired as it was left the package sitting until today thinking that one must have arrived early.  When I opened the box I saw this!  and was blown away.  I though wow zulily ya'll are really impressing me! This looks hand made...can't be though.  I laid it aside and then had a great big laugh as the package was not from zulily but kittykill

Just look at the small detail

Thanks kittykill I love my package!!!!!!!!!

Loving the pillow and the addition of the seed beads in your embroidery.

I have been spending my free time sewing and have managed to make a woodland quilt  for a swap partner, all from stash,  and some wonky house blocks for myself a quilt.

More photos of this one on the quilting finished project board.

And here is the beginning to my wonky house quilt. 10 blocks made and will get some more from a swap I am in right now.

25  Woodland Creature Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by quaggy on: February 14, 2016 08:42:54 PM
I made this quilt for my partner in the woodland creature swap.  I was able to use all stash and it was a fun quilt to make.  Each square is cut and sewn to the batting.  I used warm and natural.  Win Win since I had saved all my scraps of warms and natural from cutting out other quilts.  The blocks are quilted with random designs.  Next I traced all of the pieces onto my fusible web and cut them slightly larger.  After ironing them onto my fabric it was easy to cut the pieces out with minimal fabric waste.  I used a straight stitch to sew them on.  Next came the layout and sewing the top together.  I used a piece of fleece for the backing and after getting it all pinned sewed around each block to quilt the top to the backing.  I will use this method and pattern again it was so fun to make.

Here is a picture of what I am looking for in my wonky house block.  Any wonky house will do.  I topstitched this one with coats and Clark top stitch thread....it just makes the top stitching stick out a little more but anyone doing my blocks can use regular thread if they want to

29  Birthday Stocking in Quilting: Completed Projects by quaggy on: January 24, 2016 07:30:04 AM
Recently in the Christmas Stocking swap my partner wanted me to craft a birthday stocking.....this was a fun task.  I wanted to make it personal but also flexible to start a family tradition.  Digging through my stash I found some alphabet buttons, next on to my magazines where I remembered a pattern for a birthday banner.  Oh what the heck make the banner too for a table display.  The flag banner holds the individual name letter buttons.  I used safety pins and sent extra letters so the name can be changed out.  In my photo the name is spelled wrong but a quick switch fixed that problem.


The banner fits on a metal table frame for display.....I did not put the frame together but sent it along.  Hoping to be partnered with her again  or do some more personal swaps, so I can make some seasonal banners to send to fit the frame.

This was a fun challenge and I was super happy with the results!

My blocks arrived from alwaysinmyroom today.....I love the fabrics they go great with the rest of my blocks.

Here are all my block from my partners (12) plus the extra 8 that I made........I think I need 4 more full blocks an then I need 12  1/2 blocks, only 3 strips wide so I can add 1/2 block to each side.

I laid them out 2 different ways so far....

Definitely do not like the placement of the 2nd top block in this photo
