Been MIA but just looked at all the stuff I missed. It makes me want to get back to my sewing now!

Always that kimono mug rug is so cool.

oh all these cool crafts make me wish I had a proper crafting space instead of a pokey little table behind the couch.

Love the baby crafts, I haven't made anything for my bub yet but I figure since the gender is a surprise, I don't particularly need any more neutral stuff.

Here's my birth dress. Try to ignore all the mess in the background, my husband doesn't think of hiding this stuff in photos.

thanks for that quilty people! Since I'm only a relative novice at this I had thought (because I read it somehwere so it MUST be true) that you should keep it all the same material so it shrinks evenly etc but obviously that's not really the most important thing for a quilt to be used. Thanks

love the St Patty's quilt Smiley

I've spent the past week watching an online class in free motion quilting on Craftsy. I found it really interesting and made it seem less intimidating, since so far I have only stitched in the ditch and done a bit of hand quilting. One thing that the girl doing the class said was that she uses a poly thread (I think Isacord or something?) as its strong enough for the travel stitching involved in free motion quilting and it doesn't matter if the rest of the quilt is all cotton. She did say its a bit of a point of discussion within quilting circles, but what do all of you lovely ladies do with your quilts? all the same material (front, back, batting and thread), or does it not really matter if you use a poly thread in a cotton quilt? I really want to try the free motion stuff as it looks so cool, but I'm scared of the travel stitching with cotton if its going to break.

Since I finished my Dr Seuss quilt I guess I need to go back to my list and see which quilt I should get started on next, so I can actually contribute to this thread, not just ask questions! Smiley

hi guys

I "purchased" a class on craftsy during a free week trial, so have been spending my spare time watching a free motion quilting class. It was great, but I had heaps to catch up in here!

Love the choc bunnies and the TM bag. Every time I see one of those bags sheep blue I want to make one too, but I can't think what theme I want to do. I am a nerd about so many things... Books, tv shows, movies.

I did make a dress for me to wear to hospital when I have the baby. I have a bit of adjusting to do and I'll take a pic.

I second the charity knitting, esp if you knit for the process and techniques. I am thinking of making some baby hats to take to hospital with me when I have this bub in a few weeks. With my first he was in the special care nursery for a few days and we got a cute hat and cardigan to take home from the knits that all the "old ladies" knit for the babies (according to the nurses in the nursery lol). Or I might take some yarn with me and make some whilst I'm in hospital.

I also have a book called "one ball knits" - probably similar to "one skein wonders" and whilst I have only made one thing so far (my yarn stash isn't so huge yet that I have exactly the weight and length of yarn called for - I am more of a fabric hoarder) it has some awesome-looking projects in it. There's a shawl, a felted hat and a shrug that are the reasons I bought the book!

that quilling is wonderful! My gran taught us the basics of quilling when she briefly took it up (she briefly took up many crafts, thus her huge collection of stuff!) I think I made a bookmark with a fish with air bubbles and seaweed on it. Smiley
