It's Carl Frankenstein's Flower by Artisania. It makes a 24" block, so I'm just going to add more fabric (the background color- nothing fancy) to make it bigger.

Holy cow! So much awesome arrived while I've been away! Not only did a pile of amazing patches get made (especially that snowflake patch, the Harry Potter, the sparkly fish, and the face {did someone already say Cabbage Patch Kids?}), you got seriously spoiled with the extras! Wow!

My patches from Wulf are probably going to be delivered with my held mail tomorrow, and I hope he'll receive mine by the end of the week! I'm looking forward to the next round with you talented folks!

I am loving the last batch of dishcloths! Tough to pick a favorite because they are so varied, but I love the tardis and the HP ones (I really want to get better at knitting so I can make that style of dishcloth!).

And, those stitch markers are adorable! I don't think I could capture that level of detail on such a small scale!

April 18th Check-in:

This week, I actually made progress on my paper pieced baby quilt. I pre-cut all of the pieces (the pattern designer pre-cuts her pieces in her tutorial). It took up a good chunk of time on Sunday and, while I was working on it, I gave "technical support" to my mom and aunt while they worked on a pair of baby quilts. I also finally learned how to make continuous bias binding (my mum and aunt needed it). I'm currently in a van on the way home from FL (traveling straight through back to MA), and once I get home in the wee hours of Saturday morning, and wake up from some much needed sleep, I may tackle a block or two (there are 9 in the pattern).

Just a quick check-in from your traveling organizer! I'm currently in a van on I-95, in the rain, and we're about to cross into Virginia. I'll be home around 5 am tomorrow, and after I get some much needed sleep (and wifi access), I'll update things.

I've got my first patch mostly finished (if I could access my supplies packed on the back, I could work on it). I'll finish up tomorrow night!

April 11 check in:

I dread choosing colors, so I never spend time thinking about it. I have a color wheel and a color chooser thingy, but I still don't have confidence in doing it. I hope that I'll get better at it.

Thanks for the tips! I'll be hitting the craft store soon Smiley

Nice job coloring that page, zcrafter!

I've bought at least a dozen coloring books, and I just need to make time to color.

I just updated status over in the gallery. Let me know if I missed anything!

And, my computer battery is about to die, so I'll leave a batch of feedback tomorrow!

Great patches! You guys have outdone yourselves!

curiousfae, what a great set of patches (and awesome bonus fabric, plus embelishments) from craftylittlemonkey). I love how she stitched around the buttons and in the buttonholes to add depth! The clothesline fabric is adorable, and the brick fabric is the perfect complement! And, the bead work on the heart is the perfect touch!

roler, fantastic patches from alwaysinmyroom. The owl patch is beautiful, the sardine patch is so clever, and I love bees and hexagons, so that patch is right up my alley! What a neat idea to send little "filler" patches, too! I really love how craftylittlemonkey embellishes her patches with beads and stitching. That jar fabric is adorable, as is the crab, but I really love how the beads, buttons and stitching play so nicely together on the blue flower. And, it's so cool to see all of your patches laid out all together. They're going to make a fantastic sewing machine cover!

gala_apples, what fun patches from LaybugsAndBumblebees! I think I like the gore one the best! And, again, sending extra patches to embellish is such a great idea!

DaphadillyArt, I love how cheery that rainbow patch is, especially with the rainbow of floss around the edge. The wings on the flying key (and they key! I love it!) is fantastic, as is all of that background stitching. The fabric for the peacock patch was the perfect choice and the stitching on the quote patch is so neatly done!

jkaywiz, wow! Not only did you get some great patches (love the beadwork on the polka dot patch and the doily patch, and the embellishments on the sewing patch- where do you find such cool embellishments?), but that kit is EPIC! That case is perfect for patch supplies!


I know right?! It's like the craft gods knew. I'm still reeling in disbelief Shocked

Does this mean I am a craft god? Grin Wink


I had a great time making these patches and look forward to YET ANOTHER round! ha ha



Once I get myself sorted out, I will be happy to start the next round!
