This is such a neat way to use the pattern! A gal I work with is due in April. This could make a really nice gift, especially if I filled it with stuff.

Thanks so much for sharing!

"This is the kind of thing that I would love to make, but I'd get totally frustrated before I ever figured out how to do it."


i thought i was going to pitch a fit figuring it out. i had to rummage around in the disaster area basement to find just the right box, the first three were too floppy. good thing i'm in a "save everything" kinda phase.


"And, I can never find such cute owl fabric...sigh..."


Sure you can! google harts fabrics and fabric tales. those are the two place i ordered from. SAH posted some awesome links to fantastic fabric sites in the owl gallery too. and that repro depot place claims my money regularly, they are Amazing!

Ahhh...repro depot...a dangerous place! Fabric junkie here... I haven't been fabric browsing in a while since my stash is HUGE and my bank account is tiny...

But thanks for the ideas of places to look should I need a fix to cure my withdrawal symptoms Grin

And, I'm a save-it-you-might-need-it kind of person too! Made worse by the fact that I am a science teacher. But, I love when someone says, "Do you have a..." and I can reach into the depths of the closet and hand them exactly what they need Wink

Well, I have a snow day today, but I also lost power in my room, but I'm hoping to manage to make a decent headway into the other projects in spite of that.  Though I suppose the power issue should be taken care of sooner rather than later.  Remember when snow days were fun days?

I'm a teacher and I don't have any kids, so for me, snow days still are fun days! Until June when we have to make them up and it's 95 degrees and humid...

But, we had an ice storm move through, so we had an early dismissal! We don't have to make up delays and early dismissals, so they are even better Wink

I still have to get my tins! Maybe today is the day!

I have a friend who is an Altoid junkie, and he kindly saves all of his tins for me. I've never crafted with them before, so hopefully this will be the start of a beautiful thing!!

Raenef- Cool stamp! It has a ton of possibilities, too. I just love curves...

And, as a side note, Ms Marple, what kind of scientist are your retraining from? If it's some kind of research, I don't blame you! After a dose of research in a lonely lab with just me and some plants, I decided that it wasn't my thing. Still loved science, so I became a science teacher instead. Lovin' it right now Wink

craftADDchick- I saw your heart block on the 07 Cal. That  looks great! Tell me what trouble did you have with it?  I have been looking at that one, thought I would do it in Feb.  So give me a heads up on the trouble that one will give ...lol

Oh, you probably won't have any troubles, but...

I had some trouble in round 8 figuring out where to do the split fptr, and what it meant to work behind the fptr and crochet into the 2nd skipped chain. Homerof2 and heini cleared things up for me, and with their info, I realized I had skipped over a line in the pattern of round 7 and had too many fptr in the round. So, it totally screwed me up when I was doing round 8! As long as your round 7 is right, round 8 should be a piece of cake (which it was after I got it all sorted out Wink )!

"Happy Little Trees..." My favorite is when he used to paint "Happy Little Clouds" because I never thought of clouds as happy until he said it Wink

I love this! And, I have fond memories of all 4 of the folks you've immortalized in floss. Nicely done!

OMG! MonkeyThumb, I love this! This is the kind of thing that I would love to make, but I'd get totally frustrated before I ever figured out how to do it. So, kudos to you for sticking with it!

Clever idea with the pin-to-pencil sharpener!

And, I can never find such cute owl fabric...sigh...

laminathegreat, those are excellent stamps! The teapot from loves2bead is very nice. It would look very cool stamped on some patterned paper and then cut out! And, babbetto's stamp once again shows off her awesome carving skills!

And, MonkeyThumb, I really like your owl stamp! Owls are just so cute, and your stamp is just great! You should definitely join the next round!
