I'm so glad you like the things I sent, and I'm doubly honored if they can double as a study aid and therapy enhancement!  Holding you and your family in my thoughts -- here's to a much better season!

Awesome work, smeddly!  I'm not surprised the top hat was claimed so quickly -- they're beautiful!

Cotton fat quarters.  The backs of the prayer flags were a sort of thicker muslin.

Flannel is the next frontier!

Lindyv - I hope you meant you "finished" that blanket on a Friday, and not that you did it all in one day -- it's beautiful!

So many great things; I love the shrine and the cool cat prints.  All the great knit and crochet things - cmouse I love your hat and scarf!

And omg... that cake... yum!

I'm in the middle of a few things that should wrap up soon, but I have a couple of late summer items to add.

32. Chenille pillow

Ive seen a lot of faux chenille projects on Pinterest, so I thought Id try my hand. 

Four fat quarters, I dunno how many hours of sewing and cutting, and Im moderately pleased with how this turned out. 

It didnt fluff up as much as Id hoped after several washings, but I think it will be a nice cover for a foot stool Im making down the road.  And it was very usual experience for a project I angeled on

33. Prayer flags
 The recipient got these nearly three weeks ago, so I think its okay to post them.  It was a scrappy swap, I saw a lot of prayer flags on her Pinterest board, and she mentioned reconciling the elements of fire and earth.  So I made a set of elemental flags, intended to gradually fray and fade like prayer flags.

Each one was made of several layers, cut to form faux chenille, an alchemical symbol painted on, and other components sewn on.



and Water (this one I sewed in little silver fish and little seed pearl bubbles in the waves at the bottom after I had taken the picture)

They were a lot of fun, and Im in the process of making some (much simpler!) prayer flags for myself.  I was so pleased with the flags I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the package.  I also stamped and dyed a rayon scarf in her preferred Moroccan colors, and decorated two flat kraft boxes with hexagons of yellow, gold and tan papers to look like honeycomb (her husband keeps bees).  It was a fun package!

And of course, more food.
34. Blackberry cake

One of a ton of cornmeal blackberry cakes I made this summer it was an oft-requested cake!

Awesome work!  I love all the colorwork, and I love the big bulky cables, too.

Lots of warm people this winter!

Not sure if this is the right place, or even if this qualifies as a craft but I am so pleased with how it looks, I had to share it!

If you grow indoor plants, you rarely have enough sunny window space, right?  I strike a lot of  cuttings, and ewas looking for something a little more artful than a row of bottles on the window sill.  Like a row of bottles on the window frame!

I started out with a few single serving-size wine bottles in blue glass from the recycling, and a couple of copper plated bell-hangers from the plumbing department of the big box hardware store. ($1.49 each.)

The screw that came with the hanger was reeeeeeally long, so I replaced it with one that only went about into the molding.  (Full disclosure; I own, and this is not original, historic molding.  I might have done this differently if I had a landlord, or this was other than cheap pine.)

I love the way the glass, the copper and the plants look together, especially when the light shines through the window.  And I still have the sill open for plants in pots!

Awesome party accessories - you reallt went all out for the baby bean!

I love the hats, too. The stitch definition on the leaf hat is wonderful, and I'll bet the white hat looks adorable and pixie-ish on a baby!

Nice work!

What neat quilt pieces!  The images are printed fabric?  Cool idea.
Also sorry to hear about the loss of your cat, AIMR.  For such little creatures, they leave a big hole when they go, don't they?  Hugs.

When in doubt, head for the plumbing department - it's where all the weird stuff hangs out!  (Also check out Milford straps, or Milford hangers.)
