1  Re: Thing-A-Day February 2016 Craftalong in Craftalongs by alwaysinmyroom on: February 09, 2016 08:44:36 AM
Wulf...are you making the buttonholes by hand?  I love making buttonholes...I was taught to use a piece of cord and then sew my stitches around the cord...it helps to keep the stitches even and since you must cover the cord, the stitches are tight together.  This is one of my favorite tutorials when I forget the steps!  I also love bound buttonholes and would prefer to make those rather than machine ones.  Practice makes perfect!

my favorite hand stitched buttonhole tutorial

Also love the lid for your pot!  It looks pretty good and the mix of stoneware and wood is lovely!

dulcet--love your hanging Valentines!

Here is my day 4...I finished my Junker Jane style doll for my partner. Mostly blotting on inks to age it, a bit more stitching...it is hard to know when these types of dolls are "finished" because you can spend hours junking them up! Grin

I think yummy foods count as a project! mmmm I love any type of gelatinous rice...

You can see the fabric a bit in the patch and lining of this basket I made.  I also used it for the binding of the quilt I put inside!  I wish I had gotten more!

Couldn't turn my head upside down so I flipped your picture sloth so we can see what the heck is going on. Grin

Thing #3:

I was suppose to make this blanket for a friend's granddaughter last year...I ran out of yarn and just put it away...well, I decided that if I made it a little bigger, it could be for her first birthday coming up next month...so here is my one thing today and probably for the next couple of days...sad, but I only had six more squares to go and had no motivation until this craftalong! I will probably need to add another 6 squares.... WIPS BE GONE!!! Grin

The picture is the finished pile, the six to go, and the one I finished just a few minutes ago...

I am liking this craftalong already!  So many different types of "things"!

Love the flowers--isn't organza hard to work with?

The lattice stitching is also lovely Acadian!

calliemae--a hanging and a painting...now that is variety!

Wulf--I love the technique you used on your ATC..

dewshinesdopp--you are on a roll with your #1 thing...ha ha!  I like the projects you have made until you get to #1!

The unicorn needle minder is unique...how is it made?

Here is my Thing #2...some fingerprint notecards.  I like making all sort of animals using my fingers and some gel pens!

lol KK--we are just starting winter so lots of knitting and crocheting going on until at least April! Grin

I finally completed two baby girl hats for a set of twins.  I can't tell you what a horrible time I had making this pattern, but I did it!

Looks like everyone had a fairly good start in January!!!

First crochet hat of 2016!  My sister wanted me to make a couple of hats for her friend's grandbabies.  I do whatever my sister asks... Grin.

I have wanted to make MissingWillow something for a long time, so she suggested that we partner in this swap so I would get it done..Grin.

We agreed on 3 items, but obviously, she can't count...lucky me! Grin

I had no idea what she was going to send, other than some fabric...Here is the amazing items I got: you guys tell me that it goes beyond three items...

A pottery fairy shrine for my garden this spring!!!  I will have to fill it with something spectacular for the kids to enjoy (my hubby's drum students!)

A fabulous shrine in my most favorite colors of black, red and white!  Also, a favorite subject matter...skulls!  MW glammed it up tons of glittery sparkle!

For my heart collection...in homage of my obsession of the Walking Dead! The back has an awesome blood splatter!

(I think we are at three already....)

And, the fabric, beautiful clay buttons (I LOVE THESE!), and much needed notecards!

Thank you for partnering with me and not knowing how to count...I adore everything!
