Yay, here are mine! It took forever to get them off the camera, stupid computer! ColoradoDeb made me two awesome bags!
This bigger bag, with an awesome cell phone pocket on the side that is elasticized so my phone won't fall out, pockets and a zippered pocket inside, and she left the strap loose so I can sew it the exact length I want! So fabulous!
And the second back is also so cute, sweet handles and I love how she worked the various fabrics into it.

Yay, finally posting some completed blocks! So far I have used "Railroad Crossing," "Thrifty," "Alabama," "Spinner," and "Fair and Square" from 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks by Judy Hopkins.
Two for 1boy1girl1kitty2
LouraPalmr--I'm kinda scared of the scrappy fabrics, hope it's ok!
Two for whoopdedoo_5
Two for glittergirl94 I'm sorry, this one came out a little small so I put a border on it. It is too big, but I figured you can trim the border down as much as you need when you put it together.
I just made one of these, it was on someone's birthday wishlist swap! I didn't really follow the tutorial because it is just easier for me to make it up as I go, but thank you so much for the idea and the dimensions! It is really cute, I will post pics after my partner receives.
I made 5 batches of soap on thursday, and I seemed to biff them up a little bit!
I did a batch of coconut lime verbena with coconut milk for half the water. It turned out really oddly--I have pockets of oil in it! It's not lye, it's definitely oil. I've never had that problem before, but I'm thinking it was just too superfatted with the coconut milk in it. I think I did a 5% lye discount, and then all the extra fat in the coconut milk maybe? Anybody have any other ideas? It is only along the top of the bars, and the holes are pretty big in some of them. I may end up trimming the tops on the bad ones so that the bars are small and square! I actually had to drain the oil holes and wipe all the bars down before I put them on paper towels on the curing rack.
A batch that turned out well, so far~ I finally did a shampoo bar that I have been wanting to do for a while. I did coconut oil, a little bit of olive, hemp, jojoba and walnut. I also added some liquid silk to this batch, I love the texture of soaps that I add liquid silk to! It has rosemary EO in it.
I did a batch with a fragrance called berry kisses. I can't remember the scent description, but it is a very sweet scent. I added some rose clay to the whole batch and then swirled in a little bit of purple pigment in.
Another batch that I messed up on a little~I was making peppermint and trying to swirl red and white like candy canes or peppermint candy, and I did a lovely in the mold swirl, I usually swirl in the pot. Then I realized I hadn't added the fragrance! I had already mixed up peppermint essential oil with a touch of non-discoloring vanilla to tone down the fragrance and I forgot it. I had already made a batch of unscented so I didn't want another one, so I had to dump it back in the pot to add the fragrance and I ruined my lovely swirl!
She made me a couple things to show my love/nerdiness for nintendo, an awesome pixelated Link shirt and a beaded bracelet that looks like an NES controller! I just realized I forgot to take a pic of the bracelet so will have to add that later.
And she made me another shirt that I've been wanting for a long time. It says "Made in the 80's" I love the colors!
I also got a fabulous cross stitched piece with my 3 nephews' names on it! It is soooo cute!
AND~ (I am so spoiled!) a really cute bag in brown and pink, some of my fave colors! I love it, I think it's going to become my new work bag!
And she was really sweet and sent little pencil cases for the boys with pencils and stickers inside! I bet Aidan is going to put his "moneys" in it. He had a roll of pennies last week and was telling me he was going to buy "lots and lots of candies!"
Thank you so much Lunanne, I love it all! I should get your stuff out soon, just need to wait for the soap I just made to cure a little!
I got a wonderful skirt off of my wists from farmgirljane! The fabric is great, I love black and white and it is lovely and light and flowy!
Sansa sent me project bags and a quilt pattern! I love the fabrics she chose, there is an Egyptian one and a Geisha one, which are some of my fave themes. Now my in progress projects can be organized and not get lost when I stuff them in plastic bags!
The other side of the geisha one
And I received 2 great packages yesterday!
From sullengal I got an awesome pincatcher! I love the colors and I needed a pincushion so badly! I have already used it as you can see.
And I got some great crocheted squares for my craftster afghan from zombiecazz. I'm not sure which one is my fave, I like the ones with gray but the white ones are really great patterns too!
Shoot I thought I had went back and posted this, but then remembered that I had computer problems the other day! Here is my trivia game from the lovely beckashell! With envelope for lightning round questions! Yay!
