1  Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Abbeeroad on: March 21, 2017 08:20:40 AM
Awesome patches so far! I love the incorporation of different elements and materials! These little squares are so versatile and I love all the individual interpretation that goes into them.

On that note, I received two wonderful patches from craftylittlemonkey!!

How cool are they?!?!?!

Some close ups because they are perfectly stitched:

I love the color and the contrasting black/white. They are perfect, CLM. Smiley

AND, she sent a bunch of scraps for future patches/projects:

Thank you so much for spreading your Joy, my friend! Cheesy

Class: Alchemy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Leia Embroidery
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451772.0
Brief Description: This is a "new chance" project, because my first attempt at drafting and transferring a pattern was a fail (see first pic below). I tried transferring the image twice before I decided it was a lost cause and went back to the drawing board. Once I finally found the perfect image, there was nothing stopping the stitching!

Failed pattern:


Finished piece:

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Gelli Plate Cards
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Between Craftster swaps and gifts for friends and family, I send a lot of packages. I always find myself scrambling for a card once everything is all packaged and ready to go. On more than one occasion, I have sent the package without this vital piece of communication. In an effort to prevent this situation in the future, and increase my abilities to communicate with package recipients, I decided to try out my new gelli plate and proactively make some cards. Now the next time I reach for a note, I'll have multiple to choose from!

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread
Project Page Link: http://www.cocoandash.com/cinnamon-crunch-banana-bread/
Brief Description: This bread expands to fill your pan beautifully! Cheesy I substituted peanut butter and chocolate chips for the walnuts for extra yum.

Class: Herbology
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Home-made Ramen
Project Page Link: http://pinchofyum.com/quick-homemade-ramen
Brief Description: While soup and grilled cheese is a common dinner in our house, Ramen and grilled cheese is not! Kiddo was pretty confused when this was the soup waiting for him at the table, and Mr. Road thought we got take out. Nothing like mixing things up at the dinner table to keep everyone on their toes!

3  Rebel Scum Leia Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: March 04, 2017 05:41:47 AM
After I completed my Eleven hoop I immediately knew I wanted to make something in the same style for myself. I've been on a bit of a Star Wars kick lately (Rogue One was SO GOOD!), and with Carrie Fisher's recent passing, stitching Leia (not in the metal bikini) almost had to be done. After hunting down the perfect image (harder than it seems), I came up with this:

I started with this image, added the banner and printed at high contrast for transfer.

Once I finished stitching the portrait, I still felt like something was missing and added the flowers based this free download.

I attempted to use this tutorial to finish the back, but it did not come out nearly as professional. Don't mind my wonky lines. My new walking foot is still attached to my machine and I was too lazy to switch it out.

Overall I'm really happy with the end result, and it's all for me!!

Thanks for looking. Smiley

Happy March, all! The February Iron Chef Hogwarts Challenge is CLOSED. Thanks to Audania1 and IsikkahJai for their CURRY entries! Since I seem to miss someone every month lately, PLEASE let me know if I overlooked your entry!!

The secret ingredient for March is....


Combine spicy marinated olives with a shrimp, tomato, and olive cocktail, make pasta more interesting with this pasta with tomatoes, capers, and olives dish, or maybe even change up dessert with an olive oil cake.

Friendly Reminder: Be sure to add the header Iron Chef Hogwarts: SECRET INGREDIENT (e.g. MUSHROOM) to your entry. And double up with existing classes/challenges to claim house points (Iron Chef Hogwarts entries that do not fit a class/challenge prompt will not count for house points)

Oh my gosh, those ricotta and fresh herb biscuits look amazing!! I will be anxiously awaiting the recipe. Nevermind! I found it!! Yum!!!

That pinboard!!!! Love.

I did not get around to crafting on Friday...work, happy hour, and movie night, followed by a late-night family hang out at a friends...I just couldn't squeeze it in.  Sad

However, I DID find time to play with my new free-motion and walking feet! Here's my sad first attempt with the free motion foot:

I got a little bit better with the loopty-loops towards the end. And I attempted to scribble a message in there. Smiley Try to ignore my tension issues...I got them (mostly) worked out toward the end.

I also worked on my Leia embroidery...it's much slower going without a swap deadline to prod me along.

7  Eleven from Stranger Things in Needlework: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: February 24, 2017 09:55:10 AM
I made this hoop for the Stranger Things Swap, which is totally rocking, by the way.

My partner liked Eleven and the phrase "mouthbreather" from the show. I came across this image on pinterest, and decided to stitch it up.

I printed the image at high contrast and transferred it to my fabric using my light box.

Then I just stitched over my transfer.


I really enjoyed this project and already have another hoop in this style in the works.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

excitement last night in the neighborhood with a police search and craziness

Whoa - hope all is ok!

Can't wait to see your leprechaun hats, kbrison!

I made banana bread last night...I had to try a new recipe because there was no vanilla extract in my cupboard when I reached for it. I used this recipe. It came out pretty good. I substituted 1/2 cup of chocolate and peanut butter chips for the walnuts.

It looks so lonely after CLM's massive loaf posts. Smiley

...so, so, so tired of bobble stitches.  My hand hurts. Sad

But it's soooo cute!!! Worth it, lol.

Kiddo's art show went great. He did an awesome job presenting, even though there were some nerves for sure at the start. It was good for him to see what other kids did so that he can compare the level of effort. Intrinsic motivation is hard to teach - and this was definitely a good experience.

When we got home I pulled out my wood burner for a much overdo personal swap:

This was her request so if she stumbles over here I don't feel so bad giving her a peek. Wink At least she'll know that I'm finally working on it! Grin
