The fleece ball was made by cutting out a stack of fleece circles.  I think I used 8-10 circles.  I placed them in a stack and used some heavy thread to tack them all together at the center.  Then I took a pair of scissors and cut fringe around each circle.  Finally the circles were fluffed up to get the fringe to fall in a more ball shape. 

Oh thank you!! I'm definitely going to try this. Allie really loves those fleece balls.

These are stunning. What a unique idea. The crochet looks like intricate little spider webs on the rocks. Beautiful.

The color scheme is unique and fantastic. I love the pillows and the sofa (score!!).

Yet another reason to learn how to make granny squares.

Oh no - I'm sorry your partner has gone MIA. I hope she shows up soon.

I absolutely love the tote bag you made. The embroidered image on the front and the paw print lining is great.

The carrot treats look so good that I'd probably eat one!! Our dogs love those kong wubba toys. Can I ask how you made the fleece ball?
7715  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Scared to Free Motion - Other Options? (UPDATED) on: March 29, 2010 08:39:41 PM
Oh I feel your pain.  I did my first quilt last year and while the top went together without too much trouble, the actual quilting process almost had me in tears.  Now I want to quilt again but I'm so scared of machine quilting I'm thinking of other options.  Is it lame to just tie it off?  I wish I could enjoy the process a little more because I LOVE the result.

Your top is gorgeous and the colors are really fine.  Great job!

That's exactly how I feel. Making the quilt top was challenging for me but I really enjoyed the process and the end result. The quilt sandwich and the pinning and the ironing and stitch ripping and sewing frustrations just about killed me this weekend though!! I really didn't have fun with it.

I would also love to find another option apart from machine quilting. I don't know if it's lame to just tie off - some patterns I think it looks cute, others I think it looks a little raggedy-ann or something. I wonder if hand quilting would be more enjoyable? I know it would add hours and hours to the process but maybe it would be more fun.

Thank you for sharing your experience.

I never would have guessed this was a minature. I saw the thumbnail and was thinking I wanted something similar for my kitchen - only grown up sized!!

Fantastic job. I'm sure Tanza was beyond thrilled.

Yum! I made something similar for a holiday dinner only I grilled the salmon. It turned out very tasty. I'm happy to have a pan roasted version to try while I'm waiting for it to be grillin' weather again.

Thanks for sharing!

I agree with RockDragon - unbelievably fantastic seems like the right way to describe your bag. I'm definitely going to check out the pattern. Thanks for sharing!!

I'm digging the fabric. I think it's a really fun bag. Great job!

Oh the penguin cards can also be used for national card and letter writing month! Super cute.

That bag...that bag...that bag...I'm speechless. It's too awesome to talk about.
