101  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sweet and Easy Valentines Day Swap Round 4 (signups Jan20-25; sendouts Feb5) on: January 28, 2015 12:46:50 PM
I have to do 10 Valentines for a church project plus a card for this swap, so I've been playing with paper, punches, stamps, and ink. Having fun, but nothing finished yet.

I think I might need a mini quilt. But I have NO idea what I would do with it.  No wallspace, no room for knicknacks.... I do have need of a table runner, tho... hmmm....


Ah, but you have doors. I put two small adhesive hooks on the interior of my craft room door and used that space to hang the snowman mini quilt that Quaggy made for me. I keep my craft room door closed so DD#1's cat can't enter and deposit hair everywhere. That means I get to enjoy my mini-quilt anytime I'm crafting, but for most people putting the hooks on the hallway side of a door would probably work better.

I believe Homerof2 is a lot closer to me!   If you all swing up to say, Calgary, in the last week of June I'd make time for a C-ster meet up!!
Homer, Mama, and Belladune? Canada is sounding better and better. Can't make it this year, but what about June 2016? I know several of us already have travel plans for this summer, but would next summer be possible? Is there a better site or board for us to talk about a gathering? I think I'm ready to be serious about this!

Ave is northwest of me.  We really should do a meeting up sometime Always!  I've only hung out with Ave 2x and she is only an hour away.  Sad.

Me too, Me too, please  Grin  I'm much further away but getting together with you three would be fun!!


On a crafting note... I'm in the planning, stalking stage with a general idea of what I'm making.
I am renewing my passport... Grin.

I might need to send part of a package early...

My passport is good to go.  Methinks we all should go visit Homer and Mama!  Smiley

I'm halfway across the country from AIMR, UTM, and Ave, but I'd come in a flash if there was a gathering. It would be an amazing crafters' gabfest. But if we're heading across the border, I'll have to renew my passport, which I'd do in a heartbeat to meet our Canadian friends! Now why do we keep talking about meeting, but not follow through? Maybe it has something to do with why I have 150+ WIPs; great ideas just not enough follow through. Undecided  Grin

Back to crafty business, think I'm starting a project for a certain little girl today. I know I'll have a lot of fun, especially with the embellishments.

Finished my January Mini quilt and started on my February one...


Seriously? Like we don't have enough quilts in the works? Now you're making a mini quilt a month? Gotta love you, but I am a little concerned that you may be ADHD.  Grin

Not to scare anyone, but I finished 1 small item for kbrison tonight.  Told you I was excited to get my partner!  Smiley

You may not have scared anyone else, but you've already finished something for me?Huh? OMG!

Rayguns and mirrors are two things I never would have thought about turning into art but you always do such a masterful job that I find myself looking at your projects repeatedly. Each time I do new details catch my interest. If you can affect someone that easily with just photos of your work, I can only imagine what a real life encounter would be like. Congratulations are well deserved!

I've started stalking kbrison this morning.  Lots of fun items in her Pinterest.  I have an idea for something that I'm going to start tonight once I run off to the craft store and get a few supplies.  Smiley

As I recall, several of the things on my pinterest boards were things you made for other people.  Grin So tickled to have you crafting for me. I know I'm going to LOVE whatever you decide to make!

Mama24boyz, it's going to seem strange to be crafting for you in something other than the Sweat Shoppe Swaps, but I'm already plotting.  Cheesy

Wow, so many lovely projects.

I am very slow off the mark this year, too much procrastination going on. I am trying to work through some wips and swap projects.

The good news is that my final Christmas present arrived, so this year I am going to learn tatting. Initial thoughts are that it is confusing and not to be learnt whilst watching a film!

Do you know how to macrame? Tatting and macrame use many of the same stitches.

I'm trying to work through some of my WIPs, too, but with 150+ it's slow going.

Bookstorebabe and Smeddley, thanks for the ideas.  I'll be checking in when I get some results, and hopefully I will find some other things to use for dyes.

I don't remember the details, but when I was much, much younger our Scout troop played with natural dyes. I know that we used dandelion flowers, black walnut husks, yellow onion skins, and I think we also used elderberries, carrot peels, and willow bark. No idea what we used as mordants, possibly baking soda or vinegar.
