That is an amazing sculpture! 

After hearing so much about him, I'm looking into books now.  I must read them!

It was a really easy pattern.  And now that I actually have one, I have been doing a lot more sewing!  Grin

I know for myself it was a few different things.  When I was growing up we always used to watch the nature/animal planet/science channel tv shows.  Those gave me a fascination of plants and animals. 
And another was my sister had a science set that she outgrew, so it was then MY science set!  I loved it.  I remember looking at a dead bee that had stung my cousin under the microscope and was in awe.
And when I was in high school biology I was just in love with learning everything in that class.  Especially when I learned about DNA!  I was in love after that very minute.  Oh and I actually enjoyed the dissection part of the class too.  Learning the different parts, and where they were and what they did!  So much fun!  Grin

I love hearing these stories!

Supplies purchased.  I usually don't buy supplies online, but this time it was a MUST( ;)hehe) and its going to take a week to get to me!  Shocked  So I guess I will work on my other idea till the supplies reach me.

So how did you get interested in science?   Grin

I did some stalking already and have a few ideas. I have to go and dig through the stash to see if I have some suitable fabrics. If not, I might have to hit the FQ section at JoAnn Fabrics!


That's what I just did.  So glad they were on sale! =)  And now I have some awesome new fabric to work with!

Off to start making some patches!  I have one idea already in the works.  Another I need to think out a little more.  Wink

37  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Frugal Living Swap-round 6, anyone? on: July 13, 2014 09:11:47 AM
I guess it would be up to the people who want to sign up....I would get a feel for what they think.

But in keeping it on the smaller side, like I had mentioned in my other post...what about one small and one medium, with any more to be determined between the partners themselves?

I think that sounds good!  One small and one medium seem to be a good fit for me.  I don't seem to stress as much, and I get to make more than one thing! (I can never seem to make up my mind on what to make my partners, I always want to make them everything!)
38  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: first time making a blanket on: July 13, 2014 07:56:38 AM
Those are so cute!  How did you like sewing with the minky fabric?  I always want to try it because it's so soft, but it seems like it could get my machine kinda messy.
I love all the extras with the superman blanket!  The taggy dinosaur is so cute!
39  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Tiny stitching - more stumpwork flora and fauna [pic heavy!] on: July 13, 2014 07:50:12 AM

Yes please do a tutorial!   Grin

These are so beautiful!  All of them!

Alrighty...another episode of Silly Questions from Tina  Grin

I was always taught that embroidery should not be knotted on the back. You weave the tails under, similar to yarn work.

These patches were suggested that they are quilted all the way through the layers. But I consider some of it to be embroidery. I have cheated and used knots before  Wink I hate tying all those tails.

Do I just follow the standard quilting method of "hiding the knot" by tugging into the batting?

By the way craftADDchick...you are getting big dipper/little dipper  Grin I worked out the pattern last night.

I'm glad you asked!  I was just getting on here to ask the same question!   Grin
