111  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 7 Gallery on: August 24, 2015 01:32:26 PM
Am having to recut half of each pinwheel block. I wasn't thinking clearly when I cut everything. Thought I'd save some time by cutting all four segments at once. The top two are correct but since I put my fabric wrong sides together, the bottom two are reversed. Good thing I have plenty of scraps!

Jillybean, all of your shoe projects look so professional! Are the skirts serged? Bet your cousin will appreciate your contributions to her daughter's wardrobe. When my girls were little, my mother would sometimes sew for them. I think I've kept every one of those outfits because her efforts meant so much to me.

Kookaloo, don't you just love it when you find a pattern that fits well and is easy enough to replicate in a variety of fabrics? That black jacket is so flexible a style that I can imagine a dozen variations: sherpa suede for winter, gauze or other thin fabric over a camisole top, adding patch or mock pockets, adding embellishments like special buttons, a leather belt, a pleated or ruffled edging, so many choices.

Dh and I are diabetic, so I try not to make sweets, but raspberry jelly certainly does sound good.

Quantum. the necklace is so elegant that it almost makes me want to try beading. I already am too deeply involved in too many other crafts, so I need a new craft like I need another cat in this house. Not!

Don't get me wrong; you know I love this swap. But can you please let me get all of this round's blocks done first???  Grin  Have been at a scrapbook convention in Tulsa for the past two days, but came home this evening and started cutting out windmills. I had some extra template plastic, so I used that rather than cardboard to make the master template. Since it's clear, I can see what I'm doing and I don't need a ruler to make the diagonal cut, just use the template as my cutting edge. Hope the sewing goes as well as the cutting has done.
The maple leaves are next to my sewing machine, pixel segments are on my ironing board, and Asian fabrics are on my cutting board along with the windmills. Have I got a system, or what?

Love the bread, the cheese, and the crocheted basket to hold them, but those bowls are something else. I can't imagine the skill and patience necessary to carve something so small.

Posted all of Sloth's blocks and most of Donniesgirl's. Still have a pixelated block to complete. Working on that, Brandy's lanterns, and Homer's leaves. Then I'll finish with AIMR's so I can use scraps from the other blocks to make the windmills. Looks like I'm going to be really busy next week.  Grin

I bumped everything by a week, so hopefully that will help Smiley

That helps me a lot!

My crafting from stash hasn't created a lot of new space (miniature scene swap and doll clothes don't use up much of anything), BUT I joined the Givers and Needers Swap. Sent a personal size Cricut, mats, tool kit, two cartridges plus 162 sheets of 12" x 12" cardstock and paper and various other items. Hooray! That's starting to create daylight.

You're very welcome, Gozer! It was a pleasure to craft for you.

Suereal, since you were one of my original partners in this swap, if you want fence sections, I'd be happy to make some for you.  They measure 4 3/4" wide by 1 1/2" tall. How many would you like?

Gozer, I hate to break this to you, but I sent 4 bronze pots. Turn the other one over - it's a coffee table. Yes, the shovel is cut from aluminum drink cans. I used my AccuCut machine and a die to cut two shovels, then E6000ed them together to make it stronger.

The silver, fancy fence sections are cut from a single layer of aluminum cans. I thought about painting them with black enamel to look like black wrought iron, but then thought you might prefer a different color so left them silver. The bronze sections are heavy, metallic cardstock. All were cut on my Cuttlebug with a Spellbinders die. If you need more sections, let me know and I can send more aluminum sections.
