22  HST Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 23, 2016 07:03:19 AM
Two years or so ago I came across this HST quilt tutorial.  I loved everything about it. The colors she chose and the pattern the the blocks made. Luckily, I had an almost two year old who loves the color pink. So I went shopping, cut out my fabric, and put together the top. And that is as far as I got. 

Two years later with the two year old's 4th birthday fast approaching, I decided I had better finally get around to finishing it. And it turns out she loves it. She told me it is her favorite blanket. So perhaps waiting was a good thing.

(I had planned to bind the quilt in grey, but somewhere along the line I misplaced or used the grey I had bought. So I ended up piecing the binding together with left over fabric from the top.)

23  Purple Rose Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 06, 2016 04:26:57 PM
I watched a video on You Tube a long time ago where someone spun little rose flowers into their yarn. I looked fun so I decided to try it. Two years after buying all the supplies, I finally got it done.

Here is the fiber after I prepped it. I took various shades of purple merino and some white faux cashmere and blended them on the blending board. The first half I dizzed off, and the second have a tried making hand pulled roving.

Next I took the first set and stripped it down to small pieces and threaded flowers onto it.  Then I spun a single from both sets. Unfortunately, with the first set I couldn't have all the small pieces completely separate and so they stuck back together. I had originally planned on having the flowers spaced evenly, but because of this they got closer together the further into the single I got.

And finally I plied them together.

24  Vintage Sundress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 06, 2016 01:37:20 PM
I noticed that my daughters dresses were getting too short. Unfortunately, most of the dresses in the store are shorter than I would like as well. Especially since she hasn't mastered the art of sitting like a lady in dresses yet.

So the only thing I could do was maker her a dress. I made this back in February from The Vintage Sundress Pattern by Simple Simon and Company. It has since gotten hot, so we are going to need to find a short sleeve shirt to wear under it.

25  Spam in a Can in Needlework: Completed Projects by meleriffic on: April 01, 2016 07:15:01 AM

SPAM supposedly is an abbreviation of Shoulders of Pork and Ham. So I thought I would show that off visually with a little needlework. My husband thinks it (my hoopla) is gross, but my kids like it.

Amazon: Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the bright colors.

February 8 Check In
Since my goal was to get my crafting area set up, progress has been made. Though I have yet to do any sort of crafting in there. (I haven't got the rest of the house sorted and it is driving my crazy).

I do have a dedicated crafting space, but it is in the back part of the family room/upstairs landing. I have to share it with the tv and the kids crafting space. Good new is, if I can keep the kids area of the room clean, I have a decent sized floor space for basting quilts. That's a big if though.

This is the whole family room. Behind my daughter (in the bottom right) is the tv and a small amount of craft storage.

More storage:

My spinning area

And my sewing table
