11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Advent Calendar Quilt on: December 01, 2010 06:50:46 AM
I designed the pockets for this, and had them printed at Spoonflower

I have made two so far.  One for a gift:


And one for my girls, hanging full of treats:


It is big, about 2 feet by three feet. 
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / tardis quilt on: November 30, 2010 08:04:52 PM
I made two of these pretties.  One for sloth003 in the stocking swap, and one for my DH's community workshop classroom:



The technique I settled on was to choose the fabrics for the ground, water, and sky, scan them in to the computer, and piece them there for the background.  Then I created the tardis graphic and the building, then printed it on fabric with Bubble Jet Set.

Then the quilt has an LED embedded in it that fades in and out behind the beacon (it's brighter in person):


13  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / candy making tips (for kids)? on: August 30, 2010 06:35:58 AM
This summer my DD bought herself a little candy making kit.  It was AWFUL.  The directions were terrible, the flavorings were gross, etc.

For Christmas I want to put a proper kit together for her.  But I have no idea where to start.  I'm an experienced baker, but haven't really made candy.

DD is 7.  She is good in the kitchen, and she listens to me, so I'd be fine with us boiling sugar, etc.

So, where do I start?  I would definitely get some candy moulds and some coloured chocolate, and ingredients for fudge, but what else would be good for us to try? 
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / zombie lovers, I need your help! on: April 25, 2010 04:39:59 PM
I would love love love to make a little art quilt for my dh.

The trouble is, the only thing he really loves is zombies :lol:

I would like to come up with something zombie inspired, but I am drawing a complete blank.  

Any ideas (or even pics of zombie crafts you like) would really be appreciated.

To give you an idea of what I can do, these are my two favourite pieces:

16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / sizing for 18 month old skirt? on: December 21, 2007 11:27:29 AM
I made my daughter and her older cousin a pair of circle skirts that they can dance and twirl in over Christmas Smiley  My daughter wants her younger cousin to have a matching skirt too.

I didn't keep any of my daughter's old clothes, and so I'm not sure on sizing.  And I couldn't find a good size chart online.

For an 18 month size, what should the waist measurement be around? and the length for a skirt?

Thanks in advance Smiley
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Roman Wall quilted wallhanging on: December 18, 2007 06:43:06 PM
I made this for a course I am taking.  It is inspired by the Within 4 Walls quilts by Sandra Meech.

I printed the photos on fabric using bubble jetset solution, then quilted for added depth.  I'm really proud of it Smiley

18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / pikmin! on: March 19, 2007 07:17:11 AM
A present for my daughter; this is her favourite character, and they are now inseperable  Grin

The eyes and leaf are made of felt; the body is fun fur that hubby trimmed with his hair clippers to make a bit shorter  Cheesy


19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / opinions on inset/product writeup? on: March 18, 2007 02:47:26 PM
Hi Smiley  I am putting together a little inset to slip in the packaging with my fabrics. 

It would have my logo & info at the top, and be 1/4 of a 8.5x11 piece of paper.

This is what I have so far:

Quote
This preshrunk, 100% cotton fabric has been hand painted with high quality screenprinting ink. 

It has been fully heat set, to make it washable. However if colorfastness is important, I suggest double-checking it by rubbing an inconspicuous area with a wet cloth, or simply washing it before use in a project.  It is also safe to be put in a dryer, or ironed.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I hope you have as much fun using the fabric as I had making it!

If you would like to share your completed project in the gathered threads gallery, please send photo(s) and a description to gallery@gatheredthreads.com

Is it clear?  Does it say what you would want to know? 
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / pattern modification suggestions? on: February 27, 2007 09:31:09 AM
I am considering knitting this

http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/Galleries/bonus/spring_2007/ribslace.asp



I love the two patterns on the bottom.  However, I have very large boobs and I think that ribbing is just going to look awful.  I'm not sure what I should replace it with though?

Maybe I need to find a completely different pattern for the top of the tank.
