1  Re: Thing-A-Day February 2016 Craftalong in Craftalongs by kbrison on: February 05, 2016 01:57:25 PM
Photo bomb of the things I've worked on or finished this week. Two peasant blouses for 18" dolls (for two of my 6 great-great nieces).

Coasters that were WIPS. One set goes to my sister, but most are going to UTM for the Difference Makers silent auction. The pile is the coasters that need the back of the bindings handstitched yet.

I printed some more card sketches aka card maps and organized them in a notebook so they're easier to find and use.

Two identical Valentine's cards

Talked myself into joining. I was rolling head first through projects in early and mid-January, then began to lose steam. Maybe this will keep me on task.
Objective #1: Craft for Difference Makers auction
Objective #2: Finish up more WIPS, then clear them out

Feb. 1 - Finished 3 coasters from 2012 and have another 3 ready to finish off the seam binding
Feb. 2 - Death in our extended family, so only finished 2 coasters

Feb. 3 - Finished the hand stitching on 2 more coasters, but attached the binding to the front of the remaining 13, so am definitely making progress.

Feb. 4 - Finished a peasant blouse for an 18" doll, printed more card sketches/maps and organized them in a notebook

Feb. 5 - Finished another peasant blouse for doll and made 2 Valentine cards

Feb. 6 - Four more coasters completed
Feb. 7 - Three coasters finished. . .sidetracked by the Super Bowl.

My blocks from Sloth003 and AIMR. Since my dh is 6'5" and the quilt is intended for him, I only need 37 more blocks. Something tells me, I either need to join at least 3 more rounds or I need to get busy making some more blocks myself! Thanks, Quaggy, Sloth, and AIMR!

I took a paper crafting class last summer at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Texas where we used our dies to cut fun foam messages to use on ATCs and journaling cards. Now I've started using the fun foam words for birthday cards and gift tags, too. You might think about doing the same of you make cards, tags, journals, etc. I also used some as labels on storage boxes.

I have some adhesive-backed fun foam that I've been using to make sandals for my six great-great nieces' dolls. Used up more than 20 sheets so far. Here are a few examples.

Received my blocks from Quaggy on Thursday, but didn't have good light for photos until today. I asked for an oceans and forest color palette, so the blocks are perfect!

Thanks so much, Quaggy!

Met my first goal (actually #10 on my list) for the year - to learn a new cardmaking technique. These are flip cards. Sorry for the darkness of the photos.

Finished another fabric book for wee great-greatniece #5. Oops! Posted the wrong book the first time. Think I've got it right this time. It should be The Scrawny Tawny Lion.

And two shorts sets for the oldest two great-greats' dolls.

Photo dump! Most of what I've made this month has involved paper or fabric. I've made birthday cards, bookmarks, scrapbooks, wallets, storybooks, and doll clothes.

This isn't everything but it's most of it. Phew! Glad Xmas is tomorrow! Happy holidays!

Since we're photo bombing with doll clothes, here are some from my stash crafting. They're all pink this time because I've been too lazy to change my thread spool and bobbin. Think my next color will be yellow.  Grin

Then some paper crafting.

10  Re: Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: December 10, 2015 12:27:56 PM
Received the last of my ornaments, so it's "photo blast time".
This cat ornament from Camelama may seem to have a problem (Notice the left ear is mostly missing). That's because Raily, dh#1's kitten, had a run-in with a truck engine that resulted in losing a little bit of her tail and most of her left ear. The kitten is fine and extremely full of energy, but I wanted an ornament that would reflect how she looks.
The bottle brush tree ornament from AIMR is in my favorite Christmas color combination, blue, white, and silver. It's made from her mother's old hair rollers, so it's precious to me. I know how very close AIMR and her mother were, so I'm especially happy to share something that once belonged to her.

I love penguin ornaments and wooden ones, so the combination is perfect for me! I appreciate the extra fabric ornaments that Thimbles71 sent as well. Can't wait to meet you in June!

Love the sassy-looking girl in the vintage ornament Lindyv321 sent.

The wire star from Sarasmile is the first all wire ornament I've added to my Craftster collection. Love everything about it, but especially how dimensional it is and the built-in loop for hanging. Clever!
Then to get another wire ornament this round was an added bonus. Thanks to Ratfinkz I now have a beaded wire tree for my tree. How fun!

Thank you all so much! Happy holidays!
