51  Re: Novelty Fat Quarter Swap Round 2 Gallery in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by CraftyMamaBee on: February 28, 2013 09:04:24 AM
Well after being on holiday for a week... I think I finally have normal life back in order! While I was away I received 5 beautiful FQ's from chelseahavoc! She put in a note that she absolutely couldn't choose between just 4 so she added in the 5th! So awesome! Here is a shot of them all!

Sorry my pic isn't the best... I couldn't seem to get good lighting....

Aren't they just great! I love the cat fabric and we aren't cat people! Ha ha! I might make something with that one first!

I received from ecopp a few days ago, but I have a sick little one and it's been hard to get too much done around the house! I received these 4 fun FQs. I love them all and think I might have some plans for the woodsy owls and the elephants to make pillows for my daughter... she loved those two!

54  Mini Art Quilt "For the Love of Michigan" in Quilting: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: February 02, 2013 07:54:30 PM
Well I am currently participating in the 6th round of the Mini Art Quilt Swap here on Craftster. My partner was the ever amazing StickerChic87. One of her themes was Michigan State and from her Pinterest and asking her, the Mumford and Sons Quote, "Where you invest your love, you invest your life."

She just received it today and really enjoyed it! It's already hanging up in her home and I well just wanted to show it off with a few pics I had taken before mailing because it came out better than I had even envisioned it would! And that rarely happens!

The quote was simply freezer paper stenciled and the heart was in the location where she is from and I tried my best to quilt hearts... need a little more work with the edges but it turned out great.

One last Instagram shot... I just focused it on the quote...

Well I received yesterday, but with this cold I got recently I was finally able to take an afternoon/evening nap... so opps I forgot to rush into the office and post pictures... but here I am this morning (thanks to my morning cup o' joe!)

I received from gozer yesterday! She sent the most adorable doll!

She put in her note that her cat really loved it too! I could tell! I had to lint roll her ... only because I have a cat allergy... but it totally makes for this awesome story... she a cat lover and me, sworn enemy of them and somehow we live in harmony together in my studio! Hee hee! I love it!

Me extras, yes plural was this awesome little felt Narwhal, because they are like my absolute favorite and an ATC ... my FIRST ATC to be exact! It all goes to perfectly in my Living Room/Studio! I'll get to see it all everyday when I sew or just hang out in there!

The absolutely funny thing is the fabric she used for the arms and legs I had purchased to use on hers, but changed my mind! How funny is that? I thought it was too me and not enough of the things she has said she liked! Ha ha

Thank you so much for swapping with me! I love her and the little extras! I only hope you like mine as much!

I just checked the tracking on yours... I hope it gets there today... otherwise Tuesday because of Monday's holiday...

I received a beautiful flag from mbellish today! I had to take the pictures on my fridge because it is just too darn cold outside! (At least for Southern Cali it is  Cheesy)

She used the word "Grace"
I LOVE it!
I have some more shots to show just how much depth there is to this flag.

Thank you so much for this flag! After the long weekend I needed that reminder of Grace! I already have a place in mind to hang it!

57  "Strength" Prayer Flag... Indoor or Outdoor in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: January 10, 2013 08:40:37 AM
I recently participated in the Prayer Flag Swap that the fabulous Leslieshappyheart and Susanab organized and I made this prayer flag for my partner, embellish:

The butterfly was drawn on with felt tip pens on a thin piece of handmade paper. The cocoon was done with the same paper.

There is more about the techniques used on my blog which you can get to from the bottom of my post...

And one last action shot!

I really hope mbellish doesn't mind if I post pictures of the flag I made for her. I know she hasn't been feeling well and thought this might help her out a bit!

I was really blessed and today Leslie featured me and my flag on her blog!!!

The butterfly is on paper that I put on the flag... and I got it all done and realized I still needed to get the word Strength on ... so I used a bit of vinyl and stitched it over the cocoon.... I had to get inventive!

I hope she feels better soon and really likes it! I just couldn't wait to show it off any longer!!!  Grin

59  Re: Halloween/Autumn Ninni Swap GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by CraftyMamaBee on: October 11, 2012 02:26:35 PM
I received a wonderful package from lydiaharper today! It arrived so quickly too! It was a awesome Owl Ninni, a Little Ceramic Owl figurine, and an awesome Halloween Bunting! It was like she knew what I was wanting to make!

Here it all is being displayed in our finally completed Living Room!

Here is a close up of the Bunting

And a close up the the figurine and the owl ninni!

This one shows how purple the owl really is. Sorry it's raining here today off and on so it is making it a little difficult to get a good pic.... At least the little girl is napping or else I wouldn't have been able to pry it from her little hands!

Thank you so much! I love it all! Can't wait to show my hubby the bunting! He'll be happy I have one less project to do! Ha, ha!

60  Side Show Circus Quilt : The ORIGINAL! in Quilting: Completed Projects by CraftyMamaBee on: September 10, 2012 10:52:43 AM
A few months back I had participated in the Mini Art Quilt Swap and had created this Circus Quilt, but after showing it off, I couldn't bear to part with it, especially after all the work I had put into it. So I decided I would keep it and finish it with time to show it off at the upcoming San Diego Quilt Show... I made a second Side Show quilt which is posted on the board and decided to just keep adding... Well I have to turn it in today between 1-6pm for the Quilt Show and literally just finished adding on the last pieces!

All the small fabric was remnants I bought from a local quilt store and the pictures are original Side Show Acts from the early 1900's. They were pictures printed onto fabric and then embellished with embroidery, beads, and even lightly colored in areas with colored pencil to accent hair coloring.

The Tattooed Lady and the Strong Man I found pictures of online and cut them out of felt. Once I attached them I "stuffed" certain areas such as the Lady's bra and the Man's arms!

The tent is 3-D at the top and at about 2am this morning I realized I needed to fill the negative space on the sides so I went online downloaded a Carnival font, cut it out of the remaining red felt and started stitching it on! I am finally going to go take a shower and feed the little girl so we can get it over to the entry location! So excited! This was my first quilted project bigger than a mug rug!

I hope you enjoy! Any comments are welcome! This wasn't my first choice but my partners... but after I started working on it, it grew on me ... well obviously it did because I kept it!

Ohh, and the label I made for the back... I soaked it in my cup of leftover coffee before embroidering it! I wanted a rustic feel!
