It looks great aimr Smiley The white box itself looks a bit off in your lighting, but the contrast against the print on the fabric is giving me a good impression, though I understand the print won't be that luminous irl Smiley

Melladh, I did not want your boyfriend to be mad at me... Grin.  He was pretty clear in your blog writing... ha

LOL! He's not that engaged Cheesy But I wouldn't be able to use it for the project, as I'm going to give it to my mother-in-law. That kind of stuff gets picky lol.

I adore all the blocks you're posting as well, would be so fun to see if people actually get around to putting things together.. Cheesy I'm not really active enough on craftster anymore (since they changed the layout in like 2009 lol), y'all need to remember to post project links here if you complete something Wink

carol, just take care that you don't overwork yourself either. Distractions are helpful, hitting the wall less so. It causes measurable brain damage that takes years to repair. The breakdowns feel horrible, but don't rob yourself of things you might actually need either.

I've never had anything as bad as your events happen to me, but I know a ghost of it. I know how vast the silence suddenly seems, how it almost hurts your ears when there's no sound where there has to be a sound because there's always been a sound. I know seeing someone in the corner of your eye, then it turns out to be nothing, and then you remember all over again why it's nothing and always will be. It's like its own brand of insanity.
But we heal, horrible as it seems sometimes.
And we're with you, in the ether.
24  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Pinterest target modifications on: March 30, 2016 10:43:07 AM
This may not at all be possible to implement in a reasonably tidy way, but I've sometimes stumbled into the trap of browsing "recent posts with pics", and then using the on-photo "pin" button. This results in the pin actually leading to that page of recent post with pics, NOT the project itself - and the search being what it is (and me being what I am... Roll Eyes ) I can never find the actual project details again. Is that something that could be fixed? When I pin something straight from recent posts with pictures, I want the pin to lead to the PROJECT POST, not the current web address.

No worries, they just looked super stark in the photo Smiley Either way I'd take them and give them a good use, I just wouldn't be able to use actual white looking things in the project Smiley

You are not behind at all!!  Three weeks left until send outs!  Plenty of time!

I just posted Melladh's blocks...they were pretty neat to make with her excellent tutorial!

They're very pretty Smiley The background looks very white in the picture though?

It's always terrifying to think how well you really have to be to be able to convince people to treat your illness. Our ambulance service seems to be going in that direction, pray no one actually needs one...

Posted sloth's geese.

*writes down reds, just in case* I should really remember to note these things when they occur to me, because now I can't remember what my stash disappointed me with yesterday... Maybe the lack of neon blue. >_> NEON I SAY.

And carol - what they said. Course of nature "drama" isn't a deterrent. Only reality TV style drama will be abhorred. Cheesy Eh... I'd make some sort of reference to something if I had seen any in the past ten years. Not having a TV is really beneficial Tongue

I made minor progress yesterday, and it's past four in the afternoon now so any time I should have caught my breath and be able to continue doing the other corner of the geese... Cheesy Between too little sleep and veterinary runs (first for a scheduled followup, then back with the suddenly relented required sample from my super neurotic cat) I'm ridiculously tired. Had breakfast at seven, and lunch at three... and I am a fat(ish) bitch, I need my lunch Tongue

You have to do it at the end, because you trim to size just before adding them. If you add them first and trim later, you'll be off. You can cut the pieces more exactly to begin with, but it does lend itself to be further off measure if you do. Trimming allows you to center the star as well.

Good morning. I've (hopefully correctly) cut out the 72 pieces for sloth's geese. Smiley With blankets and wool shirt and knit booties and a blanket it's JUST warm enough to sit outside, so I'm going to sit here and mark the back of 48 of those pieces... Good plan? Great plan.
