Ooh wonderous bag. I love it

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
SPEW: (Does it count if it is something for someone who can't make it for themself, but needs it?)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: White under tunic
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: All white. I was at a re-enactment event at the weekend (SCA) For those of you who don't know anything about it, it was a weekend away, where we all dress up in medieval garb-anything from 600 to 1600 AD. It is important that everyone dresses up and we try and keep contemporary things out of sight as much as possible, so that we immerse ourselves as much as we can in a different time. Then there is a lot of feasting and revels. It is a lot of fun. I used to do this a lot in the past, but have let it lapse in the last few years. but now that I have an SO who is happy to come along, I am back!

At the event I spoke with a young man who had a very poor attempt at garb, basically some cloth wrapped around like a poncho, I assumed that it was his first event and that he hadn't time to get garb together yet. That was not the case, he has some issues that basically make it extrememly difficult for him to get garb together-plus he has no real knowledge of sewing. So I offered to make him an outfit. I love sewing so it is easy for me and it made him happy and it makes it a better event for everyone if we all look medievalish, so win win win.

The garb will be fairly simple. It consists of baggy pants and two t-tunics, the underneath one is worn next to the body and is generally undyed, the top tunic should be a bit fancier. A bit like this https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/c1/41/d8/c141d8096c5ad1eab898f34cb3650139.jpg Just without all the braid as I am braidless until aliexpress gives up the goods

Anyway I made the first part last night, a simple white undertunic. Modelled by me, It does look huge, but they tended to be baggyish.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Table linens,
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description three parts. these are napkins that have been edged with binding (mitered corners are a bugger!) and stamped with a lino cut of a martlet. I used the same block to print around a small piece of cloth that acts as a kind of mini-table cloth for our medieval feast. It all looked great on the table -now I realise I should have taken a photo of the whole setting!

(image is a fish care calendar page I drew out as one of my 'things' last February)

Last year Wile E Songdog hosted this craftalong, and since she hasn't been on in a while I'm happy to get it rolling this year!

Thing-A-Day is a special craftalong that only runs during the month of February. Our goal is to do something creative every day and take a picture to share! These projects should take around 30 minutes, although they can be longer or slightly shorter if you want. The rules are very loose as this is a personal challenge and not any kind of competition. Putting work into a longer-term project also counts towards your thing for a day - for instance, last year some of my days were just cutting out triangle pieces for a quilt (which I haven't touched since then, aaaaaa).

Projects can be as diverse as a painting, a snow sculpture, a granny square, a batch of funny-shaped pancakes, arranging your bookshelf by color, or patching your old jeans! Honestly it is up to you what you'd like to count as your "thing" for any given day. Creativity comes in many shades.

If you'd like to participate, make a post where your list will go, and then you can update it with links and/or thumbnail pics throughout the month. I'll have a masterpost of everyone's lists.

Let's brainstorm! I for one desperately need to get back to my quilt that I started one year ago, and I'd also like to do some coloring book pages.

Thanks for starting this up again. I am on limited internet and knew I wouldn't have time for it. I've been trying to get stuff done around my house so I can eventually get better internet. I got a chance to check in and was glad to see the thread. I look forward to seeing what everyone has done.

Since Easter things are out in the stores, would anyone be interested in swapping DIY Faberge Eggs. You can use any form of fake egg, the plastic Easter ones are perfect. It would probably be a 2 week sign up, with a month of crafting time.

I will also be rather glad when the month is over, I love crafting, but some days I just want to get home from work and veg!  Today was another bunny, I fixed some of the things I did wrong last time and made new mistakes! I also put eyes on the original bun.

This weekend we took Betty to see the Elwha River and Lake Crescent Smiley

The Elwha River, it made national news when they tore down the dam to restore the salmon runs. We wanted to get to the old dam site but the road was washed out by flooding. So we will try to hike up there in a few days.

Lake Crescent

clm your thing for the day is hilarious!

Honestly I'm getting a little tired of doing things every day, but when I sit down and force myself I usually find something to inspire me and mostly enjoy the results. It'll feel good to have an entire month behind me when this is done, and then I can be lazy for a while. Smiley

Thing 18: two dog toys for my local shelter made from recycled jeans. One is square braided inspired by Smeddley - I think this one will be perfect for the heavy chewers who destroy stuffed toys in 15 seconds. The second one has crinkly plastic egg carton inside, and has square knotted ends.

The rest of my things need to hide behind picture links for now! Thing 19, a bookmark for gozer as a prize in the nerd battles. I still need to laminate this before I send it out.


Thing 20 an altered book page (don't look CH) made with the scraps from my love rocks.


Thing 21 another book spread, collage. Only one or two more to go before I send it back to ChameleonHound.
