Teesha Moore patches!!! oh that peachy fabric with the butterflies is gorgeous! Very nice Cheesy I would love to see your halloween hoopla wall! So far in the new house I just have my unicorn hoopla up. Im still in the planning stages for the rest of it.

The lighting was very odd.  The patch is actually...dark baby pink? with butterflies that are dark pink, orange any mustard yellow.

LOL!  The Halloween hoopla wall is packed up into one or the other of the *whispers* six totes *normal voice* in my storage area.   I would have Halloween up all year long, everywhere, but Hubster says that causes it to "lose something" at decorating time.  
I HAVE been able to get away with one "year round" decoration, though.  Smiley

I have been off radar for awhile.  Things have been...stressful at home, and are about to become even moreso.  But, I have indeed been crafting.  I just haven't been posting. Or taking photos. Or...well...anyway.  

Here are two completed projects that I actually DID think to take photos of to post.  Smiley  

I made a little hoopla for my Halloween Hoopla wall.  

My first Teesha Moore patch.  I'm not thrilled with the stitching, but I definitely enjoyed making it.

I was at the thrift store and ran across this piece of Fabric for a quarter, and fell in love with the too cute monsters and spiders, all sitting on a web. 

There wasn't a lot of it.  Something a bit more than a fat quarter, but less than a half yard.  I cut most of it up into a fat quarter, and a smallish piece was left. 

That piece stared at me on my desk for a few days, saying "PST!  You need to make a hoopla...hoopla...Hoopla...HOOPLA!" 

So, I grabbed the glow thread and did a simple stitching of the web.  Really simple, but it's going to be cute as a button on my Halloween Hoopla wall. 

Sadly, it is sideways.  Tongue

I bookmarked this gallery when I saw it, because of the potential awesomeness of Halloween goodies. 

So far...DROOL is coming from my mouth...


I am DYING of happiness for all of you...and maybe just a tiny bit of jealousy so far.  Smiley

Okay, thanks!   I watched all of the videos, and she said to do it afterward, but...I am a bit OCD and... Tongue

I made it parallelogram because I wanted to get all of the butterflies in.  The two fabrics are two pairs of capri pants that I got from a friend in a "here, use this for something" bag. 

I plan on making a few coordinating patches using the reverse fabric, too.  It's very tropical with leaves and pineapples on it. 

Question to anyone who does these...are you supposed to do the beads and stuff first?  Because I don't like the strings sticking out of the back of the patch.  Tongue

I have been loving these TM things when they show up.  I think they are amazing, and have always coveted them.  

Well, due to circumstances that were totally under my control, I can't swap anymore, so now getting all of the cool nifty things is all on me instead of just "covet this and hope someone does it".  Edit:  it sounds like I'm whining.  I don't mean to.  I truly am totally okay with not swapping.  Smiley

On the down side: I don't get to swap very often, and can't get really cool things from others.  Sad 

On the up side:  I am digging in and learning to do the new crafts that fascinate me so much.  Smiley

Anyway, Here is my first attempt at a TM patch.  It's a little wonky and crooked, and I think that I did things out of order, but...hey, it's mine and I think it's pretty decent and will work well for the gift it is intended to become.
