I have one more to go of the new ones and have been slowly rewatching the old episodes. Currently I am watching the season where Loralei and Rory don't speak.  Cry

I have not seemed to have the time to sit down and do a good post to comment on everyone's crafting. I am always so very amazed at everyone's work. Things are somewhat dying down here at work (for the moment) so hopefully I will have time later this week. I *do* have a couple minutes to do a quick project dump.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: NA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Advent Tree
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450908.0
Brief Description: This Advent Calendar was made about eight years ago originally. Originally it was made for my niece and nephew. My SIL never used it and it was given back to my mom. Recently, she gave it back to me in hopes of having my bf's kids use it. Unfortunately we just don't have the room for a full sized tree, so I just couldn't use it. A friend from high school had another child a couple years ago and mentioned on FB that they needed to get an advent calendar. I offered this one. I cleaned it up and realized I needed to make six ornaments to replace some that were ruined over the years. I mailed it off last week and am very happy my friend's family will use it to make memories.

House:Hufflepuff
Project Name: Molly Weasley Embroidered Clock
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450662.0
Brief Description: My most favorite craft has to be embroidery. I absolutely LOVE taking on new challenges and doing things no one else has done; or taking an idea and making it my own. I believe that this piece let my embroidery skills and creativity shine.

SPEW:  NA
House:Hufflepuff
Project Name: Gilmore Girl purse
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450905.0
Brief Description: To make the pleats on this purse, I had to take the original pattern and increase it enough to make the pleats. Not something I was super familiar with. I used a tutorial to make the increases and created a new, altered pattern piece to use.

Project Name: Luke's Cup Ornament
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450906.0
Brief Description: For some of us, Gilmore Girls is a happy place. I know that my partner really enjoyed this ornament and intended to hang it in her car, instead of using it as a Christmas ornament. That gave *me* a warm glow as well.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Advent Calendar on: November 29, 2016 03:30:19 PM
When my nephew was a toddler, my Mom and I collaborated to make this advent calendar. Sadly, due to conflicts with the then SIL, it was never, ever used. My Mom finally gave it to me last year, thinking that maybe my bf's kids would use it. Unfortunately, they are just not at our house enough and we don't have a full sized tree due to lack of space.

Then, about three weeks ago one of my friends from high school who had a late (LATE) baby (we are in our forties!) mentioned something on FB to her husband about getting an advent calendar for her daughter. I *immediately* offered her this and she said YES! So I washed the back, counted and checked all of the ornaments. There were six that needed to be replaced.

One of the new ones was the Golden Gate Bridge. We are from the San Francisco Bay Area and I wanted one to remind them of home (They are in Colorado now.) I love how it turned out!

Please excuse my EXTREMELY wonky embroidery. This really was one of my very first embroidery projects and my stitches leave something to be desired. I also cannot seem to sew an actual circle.  Roll Eyes

I mailed it off to her last Monday and she received it the day after Thanksgiving. That's the day they get their tree and decorate. She loved it and had a great appreciation for sharing something like this with her family. I was just extremely happy to see it used and enjoyed.

Since I originally made it for the 25 days of December, my friend will be making little ornaments to go on the felt tree. That way she can tell her daughter that we collaborated to make this special thing for her. Which makes me very happy.







7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Another reversible mixer cover on: November 29, 2016 03:19:40 PM
I got my bf a mixer a couple years ago and it was getting dusty. So when I was making a mixer cover for my Mom, I made one for him. Two of his loves are candy and the Simpsons.  Roll Eyes Sadly, after cutting it out, it sat for over a year before I got back to sew it. But finally it is done! I think it is better that I took so long because I have learned A LOT about sewing and making things in the last year or so because of the bags I have been making. I think it turned out much better for that knowledge.



8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gilmore Girls, Luke's Diner Mug Ornament on: November 29, 2016 03:15:41 PM
For a couple of years I have had this adorable mug ornament (https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1199958176) on my Pinterest; but never got around to making one. When I was planning out what to make for the recent Gilmore Girls swap I had the brilliant idea to make a Luke's cup!!!!

Normally I would try and figure out how to make it myself; but in the interest of time, I actually bought the pattern. A little pricey in my opinion; but it was well put together and pretty comprehensive. Main thing I really needed were dimensions. the main part of the cup is wrapped around a toilet paper or paper towel roll.

The pattern goes together with glue for the most part; but I didn't like that look. I used fabric glue to secure the top around the cardboard roll and glued on the handle; but stitched pretty much everything else. The pattern calls for a flat piece of felt for the hot chocolate; but Lorelai would never drink that! Instead I cut some brown and just a *touch* of cream colored felt and wrapped them in a circle and stuck it down into the tube. I put glue on the bottom to make sure it wouldn't come out.

I thought about using a ribbon for the hanger; but after trying out a couple, it really distracts from the cup. So I used the called for bakers twine in red/white. I did *not* put it through the cup. Way too hard to get it through the cardboard. Instead I made a big knot, stuck some fabric glue down the side of the "coffee" and let it dry. Works perfectly unless you're really really going to play tugowar with it.

Wow. That was a long post for such a little thing. But I have to say both my partner and I LOVED it! I loved it so much I made one for myself. (Well, I cut it out and embroidered the Luke's) And I never do that. I hope you like it too.





9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Gilmore Girls purse on: November 29, 2016 02:58:35 PM
While obsessing over what to make for the recent Gilmore Girls swap, I found this absolutely fabulous fabric (http://modernyardage.com/Stars-Hollow_c_94.html) and I knew I had to make something with it. My partner had a cute pleated clutch on her Pinterest; but I substituted Swoon Patterns small Coraline with pleats and added an adjustable strap. I *love* how it turned out! You might not be able to see it; but all along the outside of the strap you can see repeats of Luke's Diner sign. It made me giddy just looking at it!
