31  Embroidered Fall Tree TM Patch in Needlework: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 31, 2016 06:49:19 PM
For the latest round of the Yet Another TM Patch Swap, I stitched up a fall tree based off of an image my partner had on Pinterest. I was able to trace the tree, and after spending quite a bit of time trying to match the colors in the original, I started stitching. Since it was going to be turned into a patch, I worked on the smallish side (small for me, at least). I used a 4" hoop.

It took me much longer than I expected, but I love how the tree came out, and it was very hard to turn it into a patch and mail it off to my partner!

32  Forest Sprite Ninni in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 31, 2016 06:33:03 PM
For the recent Summer Ninni Swap, I made a little forest sprite Ninni, capable of hiding among the leaves or with the birds, in the trees. It's a half size Ninni, and I made 2 masks, as well as a little bird's nest basket.

The leaf mask (and if the mask is rotated 180 degrees, it almost entirely covers the Ninni, acting as excellent camouflage!):

The bird mask:

Here's a progress shot for my Kumihimo RP! It's a necklace and it's between 15 and 18 inches long (I'll measure it later tonight). The slider might be removable (I can't test until the glue on the clasp is fully dry).

It's also my donation for the Raffle!

I hope to have a bracelet available, too, but I have to finish the RP. Back to it!

I completely forgot to check the gallery! It's probably a good thing because I've been stressed enough, and seeing the amazing Ninnis would have just added to it.

Ludi, I love the flowery Ninni and butterfly Ninni that you made! So cute summery!

mamarose22, your the patriotic bikini Ninni is adorable! I love the little cross straps in the back.

teag, that zipper mouth is so clever! It makes me wish I had little ones to make them for. And, that card is perfect!

Whatthepuck, a flamingo Ninni! So creative! I work in the city where the plastic lawn flamingos used to manufactured (sadly the factory closed), so flamingo-themed items make me happy (I just picked up a completely not needed tote at Barnes & Noble just because it had flamingos on the lining fabric!).

Roscowtown, I love that you painted the fabric before you made you Ninni. What a great idea! So sweet to include a coordinating painting, too.

Smmarrt, that broccoli Ninni is absolutely adorable! I love the way you painted the fabric, and the floret hair is so funny! I love how you replaced the heart with a garlic bulb.

I hit the Ninni jackpot! The Ninni Drew that cmarion3 made for me is impeccable! I loved Nancy Drew mysteries as a kid, so it's just perfect. Everything about it makes me smile every time I look at it, and I notice a new detail every time, too. I know that cmarion3 was kind enough to post a picture for me (it has been a bit crazy), but I've got a close up shot of the collar and pleated skirt. And, when I took the photo, I noticed that she varied the length of the stitching on Ninni Drew's mouth to add detail to the shape of it.

Look how neat that stitching is! I can't thank you enough for being such a fantastic swap partner, Carol!

These are projects that have been done for a while! I still have a few more that are finished, but I'm not quite ready to post them.

Prompt:  July- Niagara Falls
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Refrigerator Pickles
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: In an effort to use up my CSA bounty, but not wanting to heat up the kitchen too much, I opted to make some refrigerator pickles: cukes, beets, and (pictured here) radishes. Water was an ingredient in each batch of pickles.

Project Picture:

Prompt:  July- Grand Canyon
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: Brain Power, Swaptastic
Project Name: The Last Leaf TM Patch
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made this patch for Round 7 of the Yet Another TM Patch Swap, and not only does it contain the colors of the desert (brown, tan, rust, etc.), I also attempted some stumpwork for the first time. The branch is stitched over a foundation of felt. Also, the leaf is free-hanging.

Project Picture:

Prompt: July- Mount Rushmore
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Craftster Trading Card
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made these for the first ever Craftster Trading Card Swap. The image of me on the front is a caricature drawn by my sister (Whenever I attended an event that she was working, I was her warm-up model. Not only did it help her get into the flow of drawing, it also grabbed the attention of people passing by).

Project Picture:

Prompt:  August- Gymnastics
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Fiestaware TM Patch
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: On this patch, I used the following techniques: applique (for the mugs), embroidery (for the background stitching), sewing (to stitch the patch together)

Project Picture:

Prompt:  August- Swimming
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Zendala
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I took a class to learn how to make a Zentangle mandala (or Zendala). I also learned a couple of new tangles. Zendalas definitely have repetitive patterns! We used round tiles that were pre-printed, ad the outside line is visible. It bothers me a little bit, so I might need to find a good border tangle to cover it up.

I see some familiar fabrics! And, Averia, pieced hexies!! Those are so cool looking! I realized after my initial gasp that they were on the 2" hexies, but I'm still thinking it could be fun to try to make at least one on a 1" hexie. I have a fabric that could be fun to try it with.

And, I've got fabric squares galore to post!

First up, these are from MareMare:

I think the one with the little frogs is my favorite one of the batch. So cute!

Next, from Amazon_warrior. I am very happy that this package arrived intact! Grin

I love the origami crane fabric (as well as the ones that look like origami paper!) and the little Scottie dog!

This next set is from Averia. Not only did she send multiples of just about every fabric, she even cut a few into hexagons for me.

I really like the fussy cut ones that she sent! After cutting a few myself, I can truly appreciate them now!

And, finally, from alwaysinmyroom. She gave me a piece of each fabric that she used for everyone else, which will be a reminder of this swap! Smiley Smiley

As I was laying them out, I had fun matching the fabrics up to everyone Grin

I swear that I posted this picture, but it seems as though I didn't. However, since a few people still haven't received from alwaysinmyroom, I'll just link it for now so I don't spoil the surprise Smiley


I have been well spoiled by you ladies! Not only have you given me an abundance of fabrics to use for my eventual hexie quilt, all of the extras (especially the Moroccan tile print ones) will be used to make gifts for some people this Christmas. Thank you all so much!

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!
