I received from GrindHouseHussy19 on Saturday. She spoiled me! Here's a photo of everything. Everything except the squishy jolly ranchers. I was so intrigued that I forgot I hadn't taken a picture yet and I ripped into them. They were good
The main nom likes it on the couch already. The back is
I had a hard time getting a picture of the fridge magnet pen holder. My picture doesn't do it justice. I'm taking him to school and putting my favorite correcting pen in him.
Along with the monsters was a ton of pens and highlighters, candy, gum, embroidery hoop and thread holders, coffee mug cozy, yarn, and Hawaiian Punch drink mixes. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
I received a fabulous package from LindaP yesterday. I just love everything! Here's the group photo.
She made me a beautiful batik monster. I just love batik fabric! We talked about giving it a loop so I could hang it up and put notes in the mouth. I have a great place to hang it. I also got the perfect coffee mug, which is already in my bag to take to work tomorrow, a crocheted credit card monster, ribbon, and cow tails.
Here's a close up of my new blue guy!
We both thought of using prairie points for the teeth since we didn't care for felt. I'm so happy with everything! Thank you, thank you!!!
I'm not trying to take over the post, but I figure it's been since February so I'll share what I did for this pattern. My finished size was 36"x36", so I made 9 squares - each square is 12". The center square is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2", and all of the other squares are 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". This means all of the cream, pink, and yellow squares. 30 pink, 24 yellow, 54 cream. My example block will be the pink and cream one. Sew together 2 of cream, cream, pink, pink to make two strips. Sew together 2 of cream, pink. Sew a cream, pink onto opposite sides of center square (make sure they're reversed). Then sew the strip of cream, cream, pink, pink onto the matching long side of the center square. Assembly is really easy if you figure out how many of each you'll need so you can sew together the correct combinations of small squares. Good luck!
I'm making another one of these quilts so I'll try to take pictures as I go.
Great hats! I love seeing other people's versions of my ideas. I'm happy these are working out so well. And just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't make one of these. Take it camping - there's nothing better for 4-day-old-dirty hair than a bandana in the day and a beanie at night
So I have this great area under my stair case that is basically a storage area right now. I would really like it to either be some sort of functional seating area or be covered up. It's sort of an eye-sore the way it is now. I'm completely out of ideas and I need help! I tried making a curtain to hang on the wall in front of it, but my classic problem of measure once cut once made my curtain crooked and I scrapped that idea. The space is 82" high at the peak and 93" wide at the base. Thanks for your fantastic ideas!!!
super grainy shot of the offending area
it's right by the front door, so I'd like this to be a nice area rather than a storage hole
