531  Re: 2007 Color Craft-A-Long in Craftalongs by Homerof2 on: May 01, 2007 06:01:58 PM
Here is my almost completed project for May - it's almost complete only because I'm not sure if I'm going to finish it.  I used to sew tons of stuff when my boys were younger - all my own clothes, except pants, all my hubby's shirts and most everything for my sons.  Lately though, I haven't been able to find very good material and sometimes it's cheaper to buy then sew so I haven't done as much clothing.  However, I decided I wanted to make myself some clothes so I pulled out a pattern from a few years back but now that I'm to this stage, I'm not sure if I still like this style.  All it needs are buttons and a hem.......but, we will see what happens.

                       

If I don't finish it though, I'm not going to be wasting much - the material was 75% off and cost me less than $10.00.

I also received a package from kishcrafts yesterday.

Some fantastic thread (both regular and quilting) and a very cute easter pin she made herself!

                     
                                       

The 3 items on the pin are sooooo tiny and soooooooo perfectly made!

I received from Raynbow a few days back but wasn't able to get pictures until today.

She sent me this wonderful Quilting pattern-a-day calendar and some thread (which isn't in the pictures because it's already in my thread holder):

                       

I KNOW I'm going to get lots of use from this!

Mint received from me awhile back and since she hasn't had a chance to post pictures yet, I thought I would go ahead and post some (hopefully you don't mind, Mint)

I sent her a doily, a crochet hook roll and needle holder:

                                            

the roll and holder opened (including the 2 hooks and needle I included) :

                       

Also, she said if I made any afghan squares she wanted them in the colors of harry potter and she even directed me to a website to check it out.  I was able to make 2 of the combinations (gold and scarlet, black and yellow) and then also made a green one:

I received my package from Mint today.

She sent a bright yellow octopus, a crochet hook roll in a nice bright fabric, some purple yarn and a beanie for my youngest son.  She also sent some Hardy Boy books for my older son but they are already on the bookshelf and didn't make the picture.

                         

THANKS MINT!!!

I was blown away today when I opened my package from xladyluckx.  She had told me in a PM that I was going to be spoiled and that's exactly what she did.

She picked to send me some bright fabric with small patterns and this is what I received:

                            

and also, she sent some craft related fabrics:

                            

I literally gasped when I saw the measuring tape fabric and almost cried over the rest.

These aren't just small pieces either, there's lots of each.  THANKS!!!! so much for your generosity!!!!

gavagai and I did a personal swap and she sent me this wonderful Russian Doll bag (it's reversable) and some Ikea fabric.

                   

Thanks so much gavagai, I hope my friend likes this bag as much as I do!!

I received a pillow cover from TwiztidBlood yesterday.  Sorry I have to show it flat but I don't have the correct size form for it yet.

539  Tic-Tac-Toe Anyone? in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: March 27, 2007 11:36:17 AM
Here's the story behind this game quilt:

I'd been trying and trying to find something to make for this challenge since it was announced but had little success.  I went through all the games in our house (which are many) seeing if I could make something work and finally I decided I couldn't so I wouldn't enter.  But, I've seen that up until a few days ago there weren't any entries and that bothered me but still I could think of nothing.  Well, last night I was working on another quilt project and after I laid it all out, I gave it a good look over and wondered if there was any way to make it my entry.  I thought maybe, if I really stretched my imagination, it could be a tic-tac-toe board and then a light bulb went off in my head  Shocked  Why not make one!

So, I laid in bed last night figuring it out and before falling asleep I had a plan.  I woke early and decided I better get my pattern down on paper:

                                               

As you can see, it took me all of 3 minutes to do that!


Then I started working on the project:

                                         


and what I thought was going to be very easy, turned a little tricky as I tried to line up all the intersections to be an exact match:

                                    


But, after some tearing out and re-sewing, I finally matched things up to my satisfaction and in a few hours, I had a brand new tic-tac-toe board:

                                    


Just to prove it is actually a 'real' quilt, here's a picture of the back, showing the quilting I did:

                            


However, you can't play without playing pieces so that meant a trip to the craft store to purchase some fun foam.  I wasn't up to making the traditional X's and O's this morning, so I made different colored squares.  My son and I played the inaugural game:

                                             


which went to the cat (don't know why it's called that but I remember when I was a kid and we played this game, we kpet three scores, one for each player and the ties went to the cat.)  However, I (the purple squares) won the second game!

                                  

And thus ends the story of the creation of my Tic-Tac-Toe Board  Grin

I received 2 packages today.

The first was from Dulcinea and she sent 2 Hardy Boy books for my son's collection.  THANKS!!!!  By mutual agreement, I'm not going to post pictures since they are just books!

And, from raynbow, I received this wonderful box of yarn, that was stuffed full (there's a bottom layer you can't see)!
