okay...here are my goodies from kell:

for me: an adorable purple paisley purse which i have been carrying since i opened the box.



for my husband: a harmonica cozy, which he really digs.


ornament: a crochet snowflake, just like my grandma used to make. i hung it on the tree to take a picture, but our tree is still "in progress"...


random act of kindness: three crochet balls...which i actually think i'm going to keep and save for when i have babies since they're safer than the lead-laden toys in stores.


thanks so much, kell...i absolutely love everything!

i hated every cake topper i saw and it wasn't worth it for me to try to find someone to design and make one because it would be too expensive and to me, it was one of those details that wouldn't really be noticed. so, i had the florist order extra flowers and we covered the cake with them.

i received from 6in1 today! she chose my theme of sewing and then incorporated my other themes into her projects.

first up: a wooden magazine box, notebook, and pad of paper all covered in amy butler paper.


next, we have a button bracelet (note that the colors of the button coordinate with the colors of the amy butler paper) and some sewing charms. (buttons was one of my other themes.


finally, here's an ice cream sundae pin cushion and a 1/2 yard of the most gloriously awesome ice cream fabric ever! i have no idea what i'm going to do with yet...! (by the way, ice cream was another of my themes.)


thanks, maggie! Grin

okay, so here's what rriley sent to me:





i think there's a title that says "a collection of buttons" on the front. the box is made to look like a wooden book and the spine is a drawer that pulls out. love all of the buttons. thanks, rriley!

here's what i made for rriley. she received over a week ago and said she liked it, so i'm assuming it's safe to post  even though she hasn't. i made a fabric box for her.




okay, i took the photo before i clipped all of those loose threads...i'm really bad about those, but i did fix them before i sent. i neglected to take a picture of hte buttons i sent to her, but i sent a variety of 20 or 30 plus 180-something orange buttons that i had picked up in amish country but never put to use for the originally intended project. since orange was listed as one of her favorite colors, i thought she might like them.

26  Re: Quilt Blocks v 2.0! (a-long ;) in Craftalongs by miss_k on: October 03, 2007 06:29:34 AM
hello, ladies!!

i've been lurking for awhile and wanting to join...the september blocks were on my "to do" list for all of september. when the october blocks were posted, i knew i needed to get it in gear!

i plan to do the two blocks listed each month so i have a decent sized quilt. i also plan to do some extra blocks at the end to make it bigger. i'm just going to go through my fabric and pick stuff that inspires me and that i feel is reminiscent of the name of the block.

i really like this idea because it is less daunting than tackling a full sized quilt all at once...i like that i can do something and feel like i was productive and then i get a little break.

anyway, enough jabbering...here is the wandering star from september and the prairie flower from october. i will be doing the dutch nine patch and midnight moths one shortly here.

wandering star:


prairie flower:

i'm surprised there is any fabric left to this one...i ripped it apart so many times that it should have disintegrated...but i won, and that's all that matters. Cheesy i am super fussy about my corners lining up...there are couple in each that i don't care for, but it's so minute i have to give in.

i hope you like them and i'm happy to be joining you! comments and constructive criticism welcome!!

okay ladies...here's my rag quilt! it's not overly fantastic, but i'm just glad to have it d-o-n-e...DONE!

here's the top:


a close up so you can see the fabrics:


and a close up of the backside so you can see how nicely my corners match up!! Cheesy


and while i'm at it...here's the blocks for the crazy tree skirt all laid out...

i finally picked up all the blocks and re-laid them all back out! i think i'm satisfied...mostly because i just want to move on. once all the blocks are together, i'll cut out the circle for the skirt...yeah, i'm a little nervous about that!! of course they have a nifty little technique for you to use to draw and cut the circle...those things always sound great on paper, but will it work for ME? Cheesy

thanks for looking, ladies...can't wait to see your progress! Smiley

28  Christmas Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by miss_k on: September 23, 2007 03:04:28 PM
i'm so excited that i finally have a christmas scarf! i have been wanting to knit one for a while, just haven't gotten around to it.

i found this yarn about a month ago in the clearance bins at joann's for $.97 a skein! it was my deal of the day!!

this is the first time i have alternated colors when knitting and i really like how it came out...working with this fuzzy boucle made it really easy to hide the tails. i know it's not overly exciting because so many of you are so talented and are making things that are so much more complicated and beautiful, but i'm proud of it and i hope you enjoy it. Smiley

thanks for looking!

29  paisley crisscross bag...finally! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by miss_k on: September 20, 2007 12:46:36 PM
okay, so i've been working on this bag for awhile because at any given time i have run out of something for it...from cutting the fabric wrong and having to wait to get more to running out of fusible fleece...this is how my projects go!

so, amysewstx also made this bag, which can be found here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188395.0
(the pattern is from a magazine, the name of which i can't remember.)

i added fabric covered button to make it interesting on the outside because it just needed something and i wanted an excuse to by a button cover kit. Cheesy it has a magnetic snap closure. the inside pockets are the same fabric as the outside of the bag. i added the wooden handle because i had a set lying around and really wanted to use them on something.






this wasn't that hard to make and i would definitely make it again. i won't be using it until next spring, but at least it's ready to go! i'll make a matching wallet for it at the end of winter...to much going on right now! questions, comments, constructive critism welcome!

30  crafty storage!! first time with mod podge... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by miss_k on: September 20, 2007 05:32:24 AM
i was recently at michael's and found unfinished wooden boxes on their clearance table for $3 each! i thought to myself, "hmm...these are a great size and shape...i need things like this to store craft crap in...how could i cover them?" so, i bought some mod podge and some scrap book paper and went on my merry way. well...the paper and i did not get along, too many bubbles...so i ripped it off. i decided to go with scraps of fabric and that worked beautifully! i the eclecticness of the scraps anyway. here is the result:

front of box and side



front of box and other side


back of box




bottom of box
i have 3 more boxes to do and i will use fabric, though i may decide to do designs with the fabric on one or two and scraps again. for the little slot where you can put a card to label the box, i think i will fuse fabric to stabilizer and embroider the words rather than write them on paper.

i had a ton of fun doing this and i can't wait to do the rest! Cheesy
