471  GO CHIEFS GO! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: December 28, 2011 10:54:14 AM
My dad is a big Spokane Chiefs fan, which is a local hockey team we have here.  He bought a shirt at the last game we went to, and I looked at him incredulously and told him that I could make a shirt just like that.  ^_^   So I did for Christmas using the freezer paper stenciling method, that I have come to love.  I found the images online.


This one turned out better than the second one.  This one was easy because it was just two colors and nothing overlapped.  So nice!

And here are a couple progress shots:

The first layer of freezer paper with the blue paint on.


And without the paper before I added the next layer

The next shirt is the Chiefs logo.  I had trouble with the layers on this one, there was some bleeding and it needed a lot of fixing at the end to make it look ok.  But, its passable. 


And progress shots!  Yay yay progress shots!

The freezer paper with the white paint on.


The first layer without the paper.


The blue was the issue.  I had a lot of touching up to do after this layer.  I don't think I got a shot of it because I was so angry with it and I wasn't sure if I could salvage it.  Somehow, I managed.  But it took a lot of painting with a paint brush to do.



Thanks for looking!

I have some lovely ATCs to share you fine craftsters.

From Oath Keeper for my fireworks theme:

So fun!  My husband really liked it!  I love that it has a real match on it and a recycled halls wrapper!  Great thinking!

From gala_apples for my wings theme:

The wings are made of half circles of paper.  Isn't it pretty?  I love white wings.  They are my favorite!

From ThreadOrYarn for my non-curse words or exclamations:

LOL!  It totally made my husband teehee.  He loved that it looks like the shark is yelling "SHARK!"  ThreadOrYarn said it is something her dad would say.  ^_^

From indigo_roses for my Letter E theme, she also sent me an extra for my Letter J theme, too!

What a great start to my new theme!  I love the papers she chose!

Thanks, ladies, for a awesome cards!

I received a while back and I've been such a slacker on posting pictures.  So, here they are!

From gala_apples for my wings theme:

The background is in paper and the sides are done in shiny paint.  So pretty!

And a personal swap from MargiePoo:

I've always wanted one of her ladies, so we did a personal swap for one.  Isn't she amazing?!  I pretty much love my new lady.

She also sent me a print of an ATC she's done before:


Thanks ladies!

474  Re: Abundance of Embroidery thread craftalong-2011 Ongoing in Craftalongs by jillybeans on: December 13, 2011 02:33:28 PM
I've only done one cross stitch project and I loved it and I want to do more.  Earlier this year I inherited my mom's cross stitch supplies.  It has a bunch of books and a boat load of thread.


(They are currently sorted by DMC number) My mom and my embroidery forces combined!  So, needlessly to say, I have a fair bit of DMC embroidery floss.  I have a bunch of off brand ones as well that aren't in this box.  And I've been so wanting to do more cross stitching.  It would be a great thing to do for the new year!  I have quite a bit of blues and reds, it seems. 

I bought this pattern: http://www.nordicneedle.com/prod/105-296-0022.html  and have yet to use it.  Maybe I could start with the dark blues and go lighter and use up all the blues that way.  What do you all think?

475  My Sister's Strip Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: December 12, 2011 10:06:50 AM
After much planning and thinking, and some doing, I finished my sister's Christmas present.  It is a lap quilt for her living room, in which her colors are bright blue, grey, white and black.  Normally my mom helps me out with my quilting projects, but I'm now a quilting big girl and did it all by myself.  The results on the back aren't great, A LOT of puckering, but the top turned out good.  And its soft and cozy and will be perfect so long as she doesn't display it bottom side up.  And since I love all of you, I will show you the back despite my utter hate for it.


Here it is on my bed.  I used 5 different fabrics and did long strips in varying sizes.  The final measurements ended to be about 57"x42".


A better view of the fabrics I used.


Here is the stitch I used for the machine quilting and my horrible puckered up back.  I used flannel for the back.


All folded up and ready to be wrapped!


It does look quite good on my bed.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

Since c*lientje is having camera issues, she asked me to post a picture of the ATC I sent here.  Here it is!


A picture I took of fucsias I had last year.  ^_^
