31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Precarious Pots on: April 13, 2013 12:45:36 PM
I recently subscribed to a quilting magazine and my first copy came last week.  As I was looking through it, I came to a section where people send in pictures of quilts they have made from past issues.  I saw this and just knew I had to make it, even if I didn't have that issue.  Some ingenuity with a photocopier helped me create a pattern and I was able to make this little gem.  It's about 10" x 24" and adds lots of springy colors to my dining room walls.

32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rows of Kimonos on: April 08, 2013 04:26:14 PM
Last year I purchased a pattern for a Kimono block.  The minute I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I would go through my stash, pick out some of my favorite fabrics and make a wall quilt.  I got right at it but other things came up and it got put to the side until last week.  A big problem arose though, I had added to my stash.  I wanted to make more kimonos but it would have been way too large if I added all I wanted, so I limited myself to 5 more making it was one row wider.  It measures 24" x 37".

33  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Searching for the Sun on: April 03, 2013 05:00:42 PM
I'd love to claim this as my original because I'm really happy with it but I can't since it's another kit.  This one, however, was missing some of the material so I had to provide my own for the petals so it's a little bit personalized.  I called it 'Searching for the Sun' because that's what it looks like this little flower is doing.  It measures 10" x 16".

Most of these were created to give away but a few were for myself.  I'm sure having fun making ATCs.

36  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bless My Grandpa on: March 21, 2013 09:18:27 PM
I'm at my parent's house right now - mom is in the hospital and dad had to go away for a few days so I came to 'grammie sit', as I told my sons.

I was walking around the house and spotted a hoop I had made for my dad about 20 years ago when my sons were quite young.  He loved giving them spare change when he came to visit and they were always thrilled with it.  When I saw this pattern I just knew I had to make it for him.


In case you can't read it, it says - Dear God - bless my grandpa, He has grey hairs and gives me quarters

37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Penny Farthing on: March 09, 2013 05:39:18 AM
I made this for my partner in the latest Embroidery Hoopla swap (she hasn't posted pictures yet but I really wanted to show it off so I decided to make it's own thread.)

The theme for this round was - not just thread - so you had to incorporate other things on the hoop.  It took me awhile to find a picture of the Penny Farthing that I could actually turn into a stitching.  For my 'other' items I used felt marker for the bicycle frame, felt for the seat (gotta have it comfy) and the part I'm most proud of was the bead work for the front tire.  Even though I'm not into this type of bicycle, I had a hard time parting with it.

38  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / This office is CLOSED on: February 28, 2013 10:45:20 PM
Background story:  The company my husband works for opened an office in a neighbouring town 2 1/2 years ago and this January they decided that the town was not large enough to support the office.  So the decision was made to close up the end of February and move my hubby and his secretary back to the main office in our town.  At supper I asked him if they had put up the closed sign today but he said no because he hadn't made it yet.  I offered to make one - my intention was to make a nice sign on the computer.  My 21 yo son piped up and said - you could quilt Dad a closed sign!  My gears started turning immediately and I thought 'you know what, I could!'

As soon as supper was over I headed to my craft room to design the squares and cut the material.  Thankfully both of them were going out for the evening.  While they were still home I just cut and stacked the material so if they walked in they wouldn't know what I was up to.  As soon as they left, I hit the sewing machine and in not too long of a time I was done.

No backing on it as I knew I didn't have enough time.  As it was, I only had it hung for 5 minutes before they both arrived home.  They got quite the laugh!!


It's strange - all the letters are the same size but the D looks smaller.
39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Homerof2's February ATCs on: February 26, 2013 01:41:52 PM
I was in the Ongoing ATC swap again this month and wanted to share what I had made.

Sewing theme (the flowers and FEB
are stitched with glow-in-the-dark thread)                         Zentangle

                        Winter                                                       Things from 1963

               The letter M                                                      The color green

                   Winter                                                              Paper craft

                   Vertical E

This one was for the theme - Gnomes in odd places - the person I made it for works
in a cupcakery and I had a picture I had taken of a multi-colored cupcake I made last
year so I decided to make the gnome mining in the cupcake.


One I made for myself, just for fun
