UTM, I haven't tried using that mesh fabric for embroidery, but I think I'd try a tear away stablizer on the bottom with a wash away on top. I would guess that the mesh is knit and would benefit from a sturdy fabric backing to support the embroidery threads and eliminate or at least minimize any ruffling that might occur. The clear top stabilizer would prevent the machine foot catching on the holes in the mesh.  You might ask Lindyv321 for suggestions. She's been turning out some very nice embroidery projects using her machine and might have some better ideas than I do.

Freekie, little sprog is going to be toasty warm in his outfit. Lucky to have such a talented mama!

Goktrose, I admire your weaving skills. It looks like four hands wouldn't be enough to hold all the pieces once you started on the vertical walls.

Lindy, that creamer sounds great!

Yoopi, it sounds so exotic to me when you casually mention picking coffee beans and strawberry guavas while on a hike. How fun!

Erin, the jewelry turned out lovely!

AIMR, as the rotten friend who got you started on crumb quilts, let me suggest some other options: coasters, placemats, cup cozies, zip bags, patch pockets on anything, microwave bowl holders, journal covers, book marks. Once you've used what blocks you've assembled, pitch the rest of your scraps or glue or iron them (Heat'n'Bond, Wonderunder, Misty Fuse, etc.) to cards for decoration. Scraps make great appliques for paper projects.

Sorry but time frame is going to be too tight for me in view of my other commitments.

 Cheesy That's so wasteful! When I die, our daughters have threatened to take out a yard sale ad: Crafter died, bring semi! They don't seem to think a dumpster would be large enough.

Onyxnox, are you sure we're not married to the same man? Any time we go to Tulsa my Jim always asks whether I want to go to Michael's first or JoAnn's, and is always surprised if I say neither. He also has been known to make comments about my excessive amounts of stash and the extreme unlikelihood of my being able to use it all before I die. Then I remind him what an enabler he is! He laughs at that point - end of discussion.

I've started seeing possible projects in my sleep. Good thing I'm not obsessed, huh? May need more fabric . . .only have two yards, but will need twice that amount or more if I make what I'm thinking about doing. And, no, it's not a quilt. That would take more like another 8-14 yards depending upon size.  Grin

OMG! Youpi, I can't believe how many alterations you did! I have a degree in Home Ec., but I wouldn't have had the vision of what the jacket could become or the courage and skill to make it happen. I am totally amazed! Job well done!

AIMR, thanks for flipping Lana's photo. I was getting a crook in my neck looking at it sideways. LOL

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!

Trina, thanks for posting the fabric stash photo. Wish mine looked that interesting.  Cheesy

Gala, you must work for the Abominable Snowman. Doesn't she know that it's dangerous to have little kids outside in that kind of temperature, especially for that long? Good luck with the pants project. Looking forward to seeing the finished clothing.
