1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Rise of the Cougars Geezer Swap, Round 7 GALLERY on: March 22, 2017 11:25:01 PM
I received a most wonderous package from Kittykill last week but haven't been able to post photos until now. My computer has been very uncooperative about letting me post photos. One day I can; then I can't for the whole next week. Aargh! First up are two sleds for my miniature Santa's Workshop. KK let me choose which designs I wanted, so naturally I went with Santa and Mrs. Claus. After all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, they like to relax by having some fun in the snow. If you could see these in person you'd realize that Kittykill almost needed a magnifying glass to stitch the designs.

Then she made a tote bag for all my craft projects. I crochet a lot and generally have multiple projects going at any one time, so there's no such thing as too many bags! Then she embellished the bag with one of her great embroideries! Birds and flowers always make me think of my mother. Mom was a great gardener and always had a ton of flowers growing in our yard. She was also my 4-H advisor for the bird watching club, so I come by my admiration for our feathered friends honestly. Note that Red Riding Hood has hitched a ride on the bag. She's a felt brooch that I had pinned on my pinterest boards. Love the surprise!

I also admit to being snarky sometimes when my cynical side pops out. Yeah, right! is one of the more common things you might hear me say, so Kittykill added that for me. Notice the bird's snarky smile. Love it! You've been a wonderful partner, Kittykill! Thanks so very much!

I tried out two new dessert recipes for a church dinner. Very fast and easy to make.
Philly 3-Step Lucious Lemon pie

Philly 3-Step Toffee Crunch Cheesecake & one of the green, leprechaun's hats I crafted.
3  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Rise of the Cougars Geezer Swap, Round 7 SIGNUPS CLOSED, SENDOUTS 4/1/17 on: March 17, 2017 10:18:30 PM
I think this winter has been the most challenging craft period I've dealt with in a long time. Every time I think I'll have a free block of time, something changes. A friend and I were set to teach a cardmaking class this coming Tuesday at a district home extension meeting that's two hours from here. Then she got a phone call. Someone else had to back out of presenting, so now we've been asked to teach another papercrafting class. It can't be just another session of the same project. No, that would be too, too easy. Instead of working on this swap on Monday I'll be doing the final prep for the new class project. Then I'll be out-of-town at the meeting all day Tuesday. I'm so-o-o-o glad that the mail out date is April 1st!

Gala, if you decide to clear out your tulle, you might consider donating it to a high school. I've seen it used a lot to create decor for dances or weddings. It also can be cut into long strips, then crocheted into facial scrubbies.

I've been in tiny houses and tear drop campers, but I have never heard of a bell tent. Guess I'll have to do a search online. I don't think I could ever live in something so small since even my overly full craft room is much larger than any of those options. Best of luck with your minimalist plans, TansysMaySigh!

Long, skinny legs and its very own kilt? I adore it already!

Based upon your selvedges, you definitely have a much more interesting stash than I do. Think I'm envious. Isn't that one of the Seven Deadly Sins?  Shocked

Maybe we need to have a T-shirt meet up. Lindy, bunny, and UTM would rock it!

Smdley, I was with a friend today who was crocheting a rainbow dragon so, of course, I had to share about your dragon ami. She was really interested in seeing the design you used.

CLM, glad to see the shibori fabric being used and shared. I still haven't decided what to make with mine (or who I love that much). Maybe I'll just wait until my granddaughter is a little older, then make it into an outfit for her.

AIMR, alternating 9-patch and square-in-a-square blocks? Good to know that someone in the quilt block swap group is still making quilts. Closest I've come are the coasters I made for Kittykill, the mini-quilt/placemat I made for cmarion3, and the bookmarks I'm making for the children's hospital that UTM and Lana are involved with. They each involved piecing and quilting, but it's still not the same as making a quilt. Lucky little girl!

CLM, so what if the journal isn't very artsy. Remember: it's called paper CRAFTING not paper ARTING. Art and craft both have important roles in the world of paper. Then there's papermaking, one of my favorite activities. Just enjoy what you're learning and creating; it's all good!

kb, what is this mystery dinner? is it like a participatory play, or is the food itself the mystery...  Wink Cheesy

AD, our church has done both types of mystery dinners but for this year's dinner it's the food that's the mystery: grass runner, untamed seeds, leprechaun's shillelaghs, Irish jig, Celtic sword, ewes on a stick, Yeats' spade, trencher, golden harp, shamrocks, Shannon's tankard, pot of gold, bubbles, Dublin curds, St.Patrick's bangers, and Blarney Stones. What makes it even more fun is that each table group choses 4 items per course and all items are cleared away before a new course is served. The problem is that knife, fork, spoon, and beverage are part of the choices. Imagine choosing them for your first course, but not having any food to eat, then for your second course choosing an entree, a dessert, bread, and a salad, but having no utensils with which to eat them. Fingers are definitely going to be put to good use and Miss Manners won't be found anywhere.
