1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Clover and Bee Bathroom Curtains on: July 04, 2010 03:01:21 AM
Finally made curtains for the front bathroom, after about a month of tossing the idea around in my head. Both were supposed to end up looking like the top curtains, but I didn't have enough fabric. I had just enough yellow to for tabs, so that's what I did (though I never was much on tabs). I eventually will sew buttons on the tabs as well when I find some nice big yellow ones (and being that I finished them at 2:30am, there was no where to go for the buttons before I put them up). There are also giant pleats between the tabs.






2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Eight Aprons I've Made (Image Heavy) on: June 21, 2008 09:23:54 PM
I made eight aprons last week! I used one of my mother's aprons as a pattern. I am not one to use aprons, but I love making them. I have so much fabric in my room, I told myself I am going to use some of it up before I allow myself to buy any more!

If you like what you see, I've got more close ups on my flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/9880458@N06/

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Personalized Scrabble Nameplates on: February 22, 2008 09:27:53 AM
Here are some scrabble nameplates I made for everyone at my old job (the city animal shelter) and now for the shipping company where I currently work...I even made one for the head boss (though a photo hasn't been posted yet) and he said it was the best present he ever got from an employee.

I made them for the shelter when i left back in sepember as a going away gift. i made some for my department for christmas. the rest of the department got them afterwards.



























4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rocking Horse Blanket...for a horse, of course! on: January 29, 2007 11:45:34 PM
My co-worker's horse had a long-awaited filly this weekend. I made a blanket to congratualte her. More for her to use than the horse. The only thing that depended on the sex of the horse was the color of the bow. Smiley This is my first time making a quilt that actually looked like something, so I'm pretty excited!

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rocking Horse Receiving Blanket on: January 28, 2007 10:02:38 PM
My co-worker's horse had a long-awaited filly this morning at 6:15am. To congratulate her, I was working on a blanket (the sex of the horse determined the color of the bow). It's like a receving blanket, but it is for her to use and not for her to put on her horse.

I used 3 different printed fabrics, yarn for the mane and tail, hand sewed on a bow, and used bias tape around the whole thing to finish it off.

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Seam Binding? How to use it and pictoral examples on: August 28, 2006 10:23:36 PM
Okay, I tried researching this on the net, but was not sucessful. I just got a bunch of bias tape, rick rack, and seam binding off my local freecycle. I've had seam binding before, but I have just thrown it away instead of figuring out how to use it. I tried looking on google and on here to find out what exactly it is used for but to no advail. Can someone provide me with an explanation of it and with pictures so I can see how it is used? It would be much appreciated! Thanks.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Animal T-Shirt Quilt on: July 26, 2006 10:08:31 AM
Okay, I'm not a true quilter. I don't have a longarm and I don't hand stitch anything, so this is my version of a quilt. It took me a couple days and I was done. All the tees have animals. I've been wanting to make this for a really long time, so I'm happy I'm finally done. Between the shirt strips are some regular fabric of animal print that I had on hand. (Next time I hope to make every other square a shirt). The back is just a queen sized sheet. I didn't use batting in the middle, I used a couple blankets (one cut in half, so yes that area is a bit wonky) for the middle. I loved the blankets, but they weren't very pleasing to the eye, so this was one way of spicing them up.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / White Star Line/ Titanic Boxes on: July 26, 2006 09:52:24 AM
My sister was involved in a Titanic swap here recently and since the other two people have received their packages, I am free to post these. I had made her one and she liked them so much she wanted one for each person she swapped with. The outsides are different, the insides are painted the same: black with a quote. So, here they are.


Box 1:

"The starboard side of the Titanic struck the big bergand the ice was piled up on the deck. None of us had the slightest realization that the ship had received its death wound." --Dr. Washington Dodge (Survivor of the disaster, but later committed suicide)

Box 2:

"...before you realize it, you're living with her. Before you realize it, you're married to her. And let me tell you something: There is no divorcing the Titanic. Ever." --Dr Robert Ballard (He discovered the Titanic)

Box 3:


Inside lid:

"...but in all my experience I have never been in any accident of any sort worth speaking about... I never saw a wreck and have never been wrecked, nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort." Captain Edward J. Smith (Captain of the Titanic)

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Titanic Morse Code Bracelets and Anklet on: July 26, 2006 09:39:37 AM
My sister did a personal Titanic swap with a couple girls from here. For it, I made her some bracelets. I also made myself a bracelet (the last one) which I wear often and an anklet for my sister.

They read as follows:
Top line: CQD (first established distress signal)
Middle line: MGY (Titanic's call letters)
Bottom line: SOS (distress signal that replaced the first).
