Nice! I like the striped one a lot! And the flowered one looks great!

I can Captain Team Textbook, I don't promise to be the most on top of things but I'll give it a try (but would step aside if someone more dependable wanted to take over!).

I don't think you could be worse than I have been this semester! Smiley

And, the way my life seems to go, I think you are the right gal for the job, Smeddley! Go Team Textbook!

And, thanks LovelyMiss for keeping things going, and to all of the other volunteers who make it all so much fun!


I'm still gunning for multiple projects to be completed, but the impending snowstorm is throwing a wrench into the works. I need to pack up a TON of stuff tonight to escape the storm (food and craft supplies, in addition to overnight necessities). Might not get all of them finished, but I still will have a big "project dump" post on Sunday Smiley

Have a great Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating it on Thursday!

I like the different varieties of edges! For this round, I made my patches less puffy, folded the edges over (raw edge still showing) and then stitched around them. The patches are much more rectangular, but the edges are still relatively "messy," which is a combination of both Smiley

And, I have 4 hours of parent conferences in about a half an hour, and then I need to dash home to pack up for Thanksgiving (hoping to get on the road extra early to avoid the 10-14 inches of snow that's expected tomorrow... small potatoes compared to Buffalo, but I'd rather avoid it just the same!).

But, at some point in the next day or so, I'll be back to properly appreciate all of the excellent patches!

And, stillatthetop, I never thought of using spray starch... maybe for the next set! Smiley

I'm stunned to report that the squirrels still have not taken a bite... I'm starting to feel a bit bad that they haven't had their treat, so I may have to pluck the spiders off for them Smiley

oh no craftADDchick I thought I was the only one holding up the works - hang in there - one day at a time Smiley
finally will have all of mine sent - roler's going out today!!


Now, I think I'm the only one who hasn't sent.  Tongue  But, while I won't get to the PO today, I will be there before noon on Monday!

I had to start both of the patches for Watsonc7 over, but the ones for vincentvanbuck are going much more smoothly (so I hope I didn't just jinx myself Cheesy ). Just a smidgen of hand stitching left, and a touch of machine sewing, and I'll be done!

I hope everyone feels better and that life, in general, becomes less crazy!

I am currently multi-tasking: I'm waiting for an emulsion-coated silkscreen to dry so I can burn the image, and then wait for it to dry again. I probably won't get the shirts printed tonight, but definitely this weekend. And, they fit a prompt!

I am working on some TM patches that are now long overdue! But, they're good for 2 prompts when I finally finish them. And, my (also overdue) Cryptid Swap item will fit a prompt, as well. I have a birthday gift to attempt and a project I want my mom to take back to FL with her (so it needs to be finished by Thanksgiving, or at least by the Saturday after Thanksgiving). Both of these projects fit a prompt. Depending how wiped out I am (8 hours of parent conferences on Monday/Tuesday, probably some heavy duty leaf raking {and with my luck, it'll be at 9 pm on Monday}, and several hours of driving), I may not get more done than that, but I'm packing crafty supplies to take with me over Thanksgiving!

All of that, plus the 4 prompts I have ready to go will give me 10 completed prompts! Looking over my list of remaining projects, I might be able to get them done if I do some prep work in advance, but I'm not going to kill myself to do it Smiley

So, I am closer to being finished, but still not nearly close enough! Right now, I am multi-tasking... I am waiting for an emulsion-coated screen to dry so I can burn the image, and then I'll wait for it to dry again before I can silkscreen 9 shirts. I'd like to get the shirts finished tonight, but they might have to wait until tomorrow night.

In between all of the waiting, I am patch making...

I was attempting a satin-stitched patch, but today, I ripped it out in favor of another method...

I am ever so much closer to sending on Saturday, and I think they'll arrive before Thanksgiving! I'd hate to have to give myself temporary negative feedback  Tongue Embarrassed

This looks warm and hearty - perfect for a fall dinner! I may try to convert this to a veggie recipe. Do you think it would taste okay if I swapped the chicken for chickpeas?

If you like the taste of chickpeas, I say go for it! If it was me, I'd add more black beans, but if you're looking to replace the protein of the chicken, chickpeas might be a better bet (I don't know how the protein content compares). I don't dislike chickpeas, I just like black beans better Smiley

Let me know if you try it!

I got two great patches from vincentvanbuck!

The first is for the solar system... Poor Pluto!



The fabric for the patch is an image of a planet- it's very cool looking!

The second one is for molecules!



The backing fabric for the patch is a science-y flannel fabric, and vincentvanbuck replicated one of the molecules on the fabric as an applique on the front. I haven't figured out what molecule it represents, yet, but I'm working on it Smiley

Thanks for the fantastic patches!


And, I just updated a bunch of feedback, so please let me know if I've missed anyone!

And, once I get myself back on track, I'll be back to comment on the latest patches of awesome! Smiley
