Nice to see that I'm not the only one trying a jelly roll race quilt. I saved the online tutorial, but could never find where I stashed it, so I broke down and bought a print copy at the quilt show earlier this month. Let me know how yours works out, J_Kieviet. I need to figure out how to make it queen-sized. I bought two matching jelly rolls, so I should have enough fabric. Just need to figure out where to make the cuts so it's wide enough but without screwing up the finished appearance.

Thanks for sharing the process, but it's still a wonderous result even now that I know some of its secrets. Just rocks my socks!

Reminds me of all the snow we got each winter in Illinois where I grew up. Beautiful but very cold! Glad I live in a warmer part of the country now.

I thought the images might be painted on the interior walls of the aquarium, but if the bubbles are floating, how was that achieved? Very cool!

Speaking of which, who has some good ways to use up lots of buttons? I have about a shoebox full!

You mean other than gifting them to all your Craftster friends?  Smiley  They make great additions to cards and tags, art quilts, wall art, mixed media pieces, clothing embellishments, and I've also used them to make Christmas tree ornaments (starting at the bottom, stack 2-3 brown buttons, then add large to progressively smaller green buttons, top with a yellow star-shaped button - Voila! - a tree for your tree. They can be strung on ribbon or cord to assemble or just glued together as you go. Another ornament involves glueing 4 popscicle sticks together in a crisscross shape, then covering the sticks with a wide variety of white buttons to create snowflakes.) I'd also suggest doing a search online for button crafts.

Good to have you back, Bookstorebabe.

I like all the repurposed coloring pages, but the fractured card is definitely my favorite.

That Star Wars pillow is perfect for any fan, not just little boys! Lucky guy!

Don't know which I envy more, the button collection or the floss, but at least you have them extremely well organized. I'd think that makes them easy to access and use. Now you just need three or four more lifetimes in which to use them all!  Grin

Carol, thanks for the crochet word charts link. I've never seen that style of directions, so you've given me a new challenge that I intend to share with my crochet club today.
109  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Make Me A Purse/Tote And Fill It! (SU Dec 25-Jan 8;SO Feb 8) on: January 18, 2016 12:48:50 PM
I think it depends on your store. The one near me quit carrying purse supplies about two years ago. Its a small store. They opened one somewhat near my work that is HUGE. I should check if they have purse supplies. I know they don't carry specialty machine feet because I went in to get one (I think it was a basic quilting one) and the poor girl cutting fabric didn't even know what a foot was.  Huh

I thought I was imagining that my JoAnns stores didn't carry the same things. Glad to know that others have made the same observation. As for sewing feet, I've been buying mine from Nancy's Notions for years. I can almost always find exactly what I need plus the catalog (online or old style paper printout) does a good job of explaining the uses of each tool.

Sorry you're sick, Bushbaby. Love the Celtic knot border and I know it'll look even better than it already does when it's been blocked.
