1  What to do with Wasp paper? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Narimasu on: April 26, 2013 09:24:13 AM
I had a bird house that wasps covered inside and out. It was really beautiful, but alas, something came along (I suspect Stellar Jays) and tore it apart. I collected all of the big sheets of wasp paper and now am trying to find something to do with it. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to glue/fasten it down to either paper or fabric? If glue, what type of glue do you think wouldn't ruin the paper? Thanks so much for your ideas!!

2  Twirly dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Narimasu on: September 19, 2008 10:52:18 PM
I had a lot of fun putting all the patches together for this twirly dress. It's from Vegbee's tutorial at
http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/05/patchwork-circle-skirt.html. It's for my granddaughter's fourth birthday. I love to applique and my quilting friends give me all their scraps, so I pieced a lot of the patches together from these scraps. The dress is in the mail so I'm awaiting a picture (hopefully a video) of the dress on the twirling girl. Her poor twin brother is only getting legos.

Thank you Vegbee for your great tutorials!

I'm not sure what possessed me to put the busy twirly dress against the busy rock wall for the picture. . .


I used McCall's pattern 5613 for the top.

3  Penguin baby quilt finished!! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Narimasu on: February 27, 2008 08:56:06 PM
I finally finished my newest grandbaby's quilt. It's from a two fabric applique pattern by Pacific Rim Quilt Company http://www.prqc.com. I love these patterns.

Here's a picture of the front


And here's a picture of the back


I pieced the back with Japanese fabrics from a fabric exchange that we had in my quilt group. Elsa (almost six weeks old) seems to prefer this side of the quilt at this point.

I received my pictures from JackyCane and the cutest frame that she made. I loved the architecture in the buildings from her town and the lovely fall leaves. Here are a few of the pictures I chose.

A church in the dark. I think it looks like a gingerbread house.


JackyCane's 'baby.' What a sweetie, don't you think?


Beautiful trees dressed out for fall.


Maple leaves.


A house in town.


And a link to the rest of her photos.

And here's a link to my photos if JackyCane has trouble getting them linked.

(Hmmm... not sure my links are going to work, but I'll try and fix them if they don't.)

5  applique rose block for a friend in Quilting: Completed Projects by Narimasu on: November 19, 2007 10:19:30 PM
A friend in my quilt group asked each of us to make her a block using a square of her fabric. This is what I came up with. I used a rose from the two fabric quilt pattern "Rose Arbor" that Pacific Rim Quilt Company http://prqc.com/2faq.htm puts out. I love these patterns. They're really easy. I did this one backward, though. The rose fabric should have been on top and appliqued, but I wanted a white border so I put the white on top and appliqued the lines between the petals. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the flower fabric in the shape of a rose, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I can hardly wait to see the whole quilt when she gets it finished to see what everyone else did with their blocks.

6  Quilted elephant is finished!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Narimasu on: November 02, 2007 10:58:44 AM
I'm the world's greatest procrastinator and have a gazillion projects going, but I'm so excited that I've finally finished my grandson's second birthday present. (OK, he's almost three now, but at least he now has an elephant to add to his menagerie...) I made it from a RumpledQuiltskins pattern http://www.rumpledquiltskins.com/. My quilt group had a batik fabric exchange so I pieced some of the batiks together to make the fabric for his body. I haven't sewn stuffed animals for awhile and I had to argue with the tusks a bit to get them in, but in general I'm really tickled with how he turned out. Here are a couple of pictures of the little guy. (I've not posted pictures before so I may have to fiddle around a bit to get them to show up properly.)
