1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: ami eyes, where do you buy them? on: September 23, 2011 05:31:32 PM
I only buy my eyes through Lisa & Ed. They are fabulous.  I am especially fond of a few of their colors - pearl green and a few others. Smiley
I'd give them a go.  You do buy them in bulk however when you look at the number you get you end up saving in the end compared to the cost for a few pairs at the store.

You can also try wearing a cheap pair of reading glasses to help magnify what you are working on.
I know I'm getting old and reading glasses will soon be on me permanently when I read but for crocheting, it helps so much!

I also have had this book - and the thread one - for years and haven't made them yet - along with the Mickey & Minnie dolls too...
Your pooh - and piglet - both came out fabulous!  You must feel so relieved now that he's done!

Lol yarn or fabric, uv obviously just bin too busy craftin!! I wondered where you'd been!

I don't know what happened to me - I just lost the groove of keeping up with everything.  I have been keeping really REALLY busy though that's for sure!
One morning when all is nice and quiet I am going to take stock of what I have done and get updated.  I'm thinking it would almost be quicker to start over fresh lol.  I have 5 months of catch up time!!

Oh.my.god.  I should be slapped!! I can't believe that I have let this go untouched for so long!  I haven't updated since February?? Seriously?  Is that right?!!

I'm going to work on getting this updated!!  I don't have time to do it now.  I will say that I just finished 4 projects this past weekend - dresser runners for my bedroom.  I posted here about them... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386704 and on my blog of course....
I think I've already hit 100.. I must have by now.  I'll have to count and cross off what I have done.  I'll update that sometime... soon....

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Dresser Runners for me!! on: July 25, 2011 05:28:32 AM
I have been wanting to make runners to go on the top of my dressers for a long  loooong time... I have started a few times and then changed gears because of one reason or another. Well, almost a year and a half later I finally came up with something that I liked - and it was almost instant satisfaction since it was a quilt as you go project.  Once you are done piecing it, all you have to do is bind it.  Sweet.  Granted, it doesn't have tons of beautiful quilting but these are runners.  I'm okay with that.  Cheesy

I followed  the Idaho Quilter tutorial
I will say that the long ones I changed the starting square to 8 1/2" to make it deep enough for my big dressers.  I also added a strip of the butterfly fabric to tie it together halfway through the repeated strips pattern. 

If you make it - use your walking foot... it will help to keep your tips on track - and I also drew a line down the length of the material to make sure I was staying on point and with the walking foot I was - without the walking foot.... yeah, I ripped  A LOT.

The colors are not right.  The materials are richer in color.  The inside shots are closer to what they really are but they are much deeper and richer shades to the colors.

This size is 51 x 16", for the side tables... and the larger ones for the two big dressers is 94x20".  I love the way they came out.  I think they're just perfect.  My bedroom walls are a dusty purple. I'm going to make valances and wall hangings in the upcoming year... But not right now, I have other projects that need to be checked off my to do list.







I also of course blogged about this but it's one of my pet peeves when people post a pic and then say for more info go to my blog... I *think* I covered everything here that I did on my blog.  I'm really happy with these.  I just love instant gratification.  Cheesy  Although now I have to finish cleaning up the room.  The pictures here are of hubby's dressers... I still have to put mine on.  I'll do that this week....
