11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / cowboy themed star quilt on: January 01, 2007 03:53:56 PM
In the summer, I had a job sewing maternity clothes out of my home. My 8 year old nephew was visiting, and every time he'd walk by me sewing, he'd say "Are you making me a blanket?" And every time, I said "no." So when I asked him what he wanted for Christmas a few weeks later he said without hesitation "a blanket...with cowboys...and lions."
So after much swearing, an endless search on ebay for cowboy fabric, about $80 and a bout of carpal tunnel, here it is:

I used a tutorial  found here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69055.0
I used 12" squares in a 4x6 grid, added sashings and a border, and binding. It's a really big twin size. The back is the same cow print as the border. The quilting was less than stellar, I just followed the straight lines because it was Christmas Eve, and I was tired. I hand stitched the back of the binding and almost killed my hand, but Thomas loved it. So I GUESS being a good auntie is worth my carpal tunnel. Maybe.
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / present for a not quite boyfriend? on: February 11, 2005 09:50:58 PM
What to get for a guy that you're casually dating (very casually)?? I've been trying to think of a gift that doesn't scream "I LOVE YOU" but is still playful. No such luck.

Any ideas?
13  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / sheet of plexiglass on: September 18, 2004 05:42:48 PM
My dad bought a big sheet of clear plexi to use to slide into the dog doors and keep the puppy inside when needed. He got it cut at the hardware store, so he ended up with the big leftover piece, too. Its about 3 feet by 2 feet wide. I really want to use it for something, but I have no idea what I could do with it. Or really how to cut it ... but I can figure that out later. Any ideas?
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / crackle finish? on: March 01, 2004 07:13:14 PM
Does anyone have any recomendations on a good crackle finish? I have 'Anitas' and 'plaid folkart' but I am just not completely happy with either of them yet! I've been doing my fair share of experimenting with them, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any tips or good products to use. thanks! Smiley
