I had some scraps left over from a baby quilt and decided to try my hand at machine applique and machine binding.  Here is the result:

My mother-in-law made a request for a new case for her eyeglasses and this is what I came up with.

This is so awesome!

Are you familiar with Jonathon Coulton?  He actually wrote a song about office workers who become Zombies.  You can check it out here: http://www.jonathancoulton.com/2006/03/24/thing-a-week-26-re-your-brains/

OK, here's my contribution.  I received a whole bunch of scraps in the mail and there was a lot of pink in there.  Change purses are my new favorite thing, so I whipped one up as a thank you for the gal who sent me the scraps.

I had to add some non-pink colors in there to add interest.  And, because, I just couldn't make it all pink.  Sorry!

156  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need New Top For Coffee Table - Ideas Please!! on: June 24, 2006 06:16:17 AM
I've had this coffee table for many years - it was a hand-me-down.  Nice, white marble.  But it cracked!!

I had to remove the marble and now the table has a sad, unfinished top.  It appears to be stained, but it's not smooth or varnished.  I could just sand it, stain it, and finish it - but that would be so boring!

So my question to you, fellow crafsters, is what the heck can I do with this coffee table that is not too expensive, baby-friendly, and would look fabulous!!??  (tall order, I know)

I thought about getting a piece of plywood and stapling some foam and fabric on top.  That would be baby-friendly, but not fabulous.  An idea my husband had was to get a nice piece of rounded glass to put on top and place pictures underneath.  I immediately took it one step further and had grand ideas about creating a collage right on top of the table, but I've never done a collage before.  I wouldn't even know how to approach it!  Also, where does one get a nice, piece of glass.  I sort of doubt it would fit into my inexpensive criteria Wink.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is v2.0:

I decided that the embroidered face just wasn't working out, so I used felt instead.  I also gave him a diet: skinnier torso.  I think he looks better, but I'm still not satisfied that he's done.  I just don't know what I want to do to make him better.

OK, so I decided to just go for it and draft a pattern for a puppy.  Here is the result:

I'm hoping to make a second, better, version soon.  You can read about the process of making him and changes I plan on making here.
160  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: selling on etsy -- is it as good as selling in person or much less so? on: June 09, 2006 04:09:26 AM
I recently signed up for Etsy, but I haven't set a shop up yet.  I had thought about doing craft fairs at first, but the more I read about them the more doubt I had.  Craft fairs have a lot of up-front expense: booth fees, booth displays, etc.  Also, you need a lot of inventory for a craft fair.  I make quilts, and it takes a long time to accumulate a lot of inventory.  I figured that Etsy was a good way to get started with relatively few items and for not much start-up cost.  At the very least, I could make enough at Etsy to cover the cost of craft fairs (if I ever build up the inventory!).
