quaggy, those hexie flowers look great! I love seeing hexie progress!

And, MareMare, thanks for the glue stick tips!

Sadly, I received this in the mail today...

I don't even know why they sent it onwards and didn't return it to Amazon_warrior.

Okay, to keep myself on track, here is what my craft room looks like.

You can see why A) I need to organize it and B) why craft supplies are currently in other rooms of the house. I can't really get in there to put things away. Looking past the mess, you can see the cabinet that will be used for fabric storage, the bookcase that needs to be organized, and the yarn cubby, which is that deceptively small white door in the wall (pretty organized already). In the front right corner of the photo is the edge of one of two storage units (also pretty organized... Although the stuff inside is a bit of a jumble, the boxes are labeled)- the other unit is to the left, behind the door. At the end of the room, to the right, is a drafting table, and on the left, there is a closet (stamping and paper craft supplies...mostly organized).

The perimeter of the room isn't bad- it's that pile in the center. There's a folding table that had stuff on, under, and around it. Today, I'm going to start clearing that out.

Here's my card (the front, at least).

The image of me on the front is a caricature drawn by my sister. Whenever I attended an event that she was working, I'd act as her warm-up model. Not only did it get her in the flow of drawing, it helped to catch the attention of people passing by. I used Microsoft Publisher to design the front and back of the card, and even though I thought I had them exactly lined up, the print shop couldn't print them correctly. So, I had them printed onto white card stock (6 to a page). Then, I masked the information on the back and stamped over them. On the front, the "frame" is hand drawn, and then I used some good old Crayolas to add a bit more color.

I received 2 sets of squares today! And, I was a bit spoiled Smiley

The first set is from Immaculata. I can't believe how quickly they arrived!

The second set is from quaggy, and she was extremely generous! Each fabric has at least 2 pieces!

Thank you both for the fantastic, and abundant, squares! I can't wait to start stitching them up!

I will try to take better pictures when the light improves!

Prompt:  July Battle - Roadside Attractions
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Craftology
Bonus Points:  WIP It!
Project Name: Dinosaur Planters
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: There are many dinosaur-themed roadside attractions in the US. I've been to 2 here in Massachusetts (fossilized dinosaur tracks) and my friend and his family just stopped at one in a rest area in Wyoming. I've had a collection of toy dinos to turn into planters for quite some time now and when I went to Home Depot the other day and they had a display of tiny succulents out front, I took it as a sign that the time was right. I originally planned to spray paint them, but for now, I kind of like the natural look (except for that orange one in the back). These will go in my classroom, and I'll probably take them out of their little pots and properly plant them when I get to school (they'll be easier to transport).

Okay, since I have totally been in organizing mode this summer, I've realized that I shouldn't do my t-shirt quilt until my craft room is organized. So, I'm going to put the T-shirt & Jeans Quilt on hold, and replace it with this...

Research Project Name: Craft Room Overhaul
Team: Analog
Brief Description: I have craft supplies in every room of the house, and if I actually put them in the craft room, my house would be at least 75% cleaner. So, a reorganization (I had it mostly under control a couple of years ago, but then life took over) of the craft room is in order!

Plan of Action:
1. Measure the folding table & floor space to determine how much room I have to play with.
2. Remove all craft supplies that are not (or can not currently be) properly stored.
3. Clean and repair a cabinet intended for fabric storage.
4. Head to IKEA to get some shelf/storage components to maximize storage and make efficient use of the available space.
5. Transfer all craft supplies to the craft room, storing them in an appropriate place.
6. Craft in the craft room!!

And to hold myself accountable, here is part of my current view from the sofa in the living room, looking towards the dining room. I am not proud of the current chaotic state, but I'm happy that, in spite of the appearance to the contrary, there is a little bit of order in that mess! I will take a shot from about the same view as the project progresses.

Animal!!!!! I love that patch! And, it's a good thing you don't live nearby, because I would steal it! Seriously. The Dr. Who patch is also amazing- I never thought about using a gutta resist with fabric paint or acrylic paint. In my mind it was for silk dyes only, so thanks for the info, Wulf!

My partner received today, so I'm going to post pics for her Smiley

First is "Fall Tree," which took a long time to stitch! But, I think it was worth it Smiley

Next is "The Last Leaf," and I stitched the branch over a felt base (I don't know if it qualifies as stump work), and the leaf is free hanging.

And finally, a very simple (and possibly in need of additional embellishment) extra patch, "Fiesta Ware."

July 18th Check In

I've been focused on swap stuff, but yesterday, as part of said swap stuff, I did a bit of fabric shopping at some local (not JoAnn fabrics) shops. And, another shop today... But, yesterday, in one of the shops they had a gorgeous quilt on display. It looked simple, and they had a kit for it! So, I splurged and bought the kit. I might try the pattern first and use my Star Wars fat quarter stack, if it works out right.

Here's what the quilt kit should make:

The pattern is called Half Moon Bay, if I read it right.

Great fabrics, MareMare! And, you're right, you should make that pouch right away!

And, this morning I had to meet my sister for a Zentangle class, and when I got there, she wasn't quite ready to go. So, I had about 15 minutes to kill. And, could you believe there was a little quilt shop right next door? When I told the very nice lady what I was doing, she pointed me to a couple of baskets of fat 16ths (or slightly bigger). Ten for $5!  I bought 40 Grin


I think I have enough fabric for the swap now Smiley And I still haven't dug through my stash!
