curiousfae also chose my Alzheimer's theme. When I pulled this card out of the envie, I thought, 'hold on, there must be a story behind this...' and there is. Her grandma kept repeating herself every few minutes about wanting watermelon. curiousfae ended up laughing with her and bringing joy to the situation.
Mom did the same. I would arrive at her nursing home and she would ask, "how did you find me?" Then again three minutes later...
I eat the story about the card, also the swirly texture which is gorgeous!
Thank you, curiousfae!

I feel like I've missed all of March! I haven't even checked out the chainswarm (and I'll remedy that this weekend)!

I did manage to finish the March Battle, however!

Prompt:  March Battle- PAST
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points:  n/a
Project Name: Upcycled Calendar Gift Bags
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I always hate throwing away old calendars, so I save them for "something." Some end up in my classroom for various activities, but others I've saved for crafting (gift bags, cards, envelopes). I've never made the time to do it, but there's nothing like a looming deadline to motivate me! I used a 2007-2008 calendar and my Silhouette to cut out 15 (I messed one up) of the pages. They fold up into small (about the size of a deck of cards) gift bags. I've only folded up the sample (made from the back cover) for now. If I put them all together now, they'll get wrecked Smiley  Plus, I can store them flat. They're a good size for gift cards or jewelery.

Project Picture:

Now, I might even be able to get my March Flash Mob finished; I just need a snack first Smiley

Here's what I've been working on lately!

For my do.Good stitches group (Faith Circle) for February I asked for a combo of bright colored improv blocks and low value improv blocks in specific rectangular sizes with a few squares thrown in for a more modular final setting. These were the ones I made for examples

March's blocks she asked for muted, gray or brown toned colors in either 9 patches, 16 patches, or 36 patches. It's not really my style at all but I am excited to see the final layout of the quilt!

For my Challenge Accepted bee which is paper piecing or advanced piecing, January asked for this fun paper pieced block:

And February asked for some pink and orange improv blocks with white and cream fabrics:

March was a fun paper pieced block from Fresh Lemon Quilts in Christmas colors/fabrics. Her color scheme was navy, lime, aqua, red, as well as traditional red and green Christmas colors.

I also finished this charity quilt from last year for do.Good stitches. Well, all I did in the whole process was pick the pile of flesh (a fun arrangement of 9 patches from Red Pepper Quilts), make two blocks, stitch the top, and bind it. My group made the rest of the blocks and my ghoulish friend Rachel from 2nd Avenue Studio did the wonderful quilting, which was absolutely perfect for all the negative space. She free motioned it on her long arm. (Also, because I like to brag on my friends, she won 2nd place at Quilt Con in the Applique Category!)

An in progress pic of Rachel quilting it.

I'm not sure if I've shown you guys my Ocean quilt since it's been finished? This still isn't a completed pic since I got the binding on quite a while ago. I'm currently working on some pillows to go with it and then I'll get some nice pics!

Prompt: 60s Flower Child
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Dice bag
My boyfriend is an avid Magic: The Gathering player. He has about two dozen dice of varying sorts and sizes but didn't have a dice bag so he was just tossing them into the pocket of the backpack that he uses to carry his rare card binders. He kept saying he was going to buy one but I said I could make him one instead. I made it using Red Heart With eat in Peacock since blue is his favorite color because "it's a peaceful color". I actually made this for Ultimate Pi Day but never got around to posting it here Tongue

I finally got to make something else from my stash: Easter collars for my Beastie Grrrlz. In this case they are peter pan collars.  I also made an Easter bonnet for the dog would would tolerate it.  The whole project is posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438697.0

But here are shots of my grrrlz wearing their stash-only Easter Finery! (the bonnet is not stash-only)

So, there I was going to town on pinterest, pinning all manner of crazy Easter bonnets (etc.) and I got inspired to make a fanciful Easter Bonnet for Betty.  She's pretty game for wearing outfits, especially when there are friends around or she's at work with her papa and evryone is cooing over her.  Roll Eyes  Even though I am trying to work from stash as much as possible this year, I didn't have anything suitable at all. So, except for the thread, wire, pink button and the black elastic, the supplies were bought. Still less that $3 was spent and nothing was left over but another little birdie.



And of course, once I saw the brain protector on her, I had to make her a sweet little peter pan collar with a sweet little button! I had just enough of the perfect material to compliment her bonnet in my stash!  Ditto for thread and button.

And another photo of her in her Easter Finery; this one taken about 1/10th of a second before she had to chase a bird off of the deck.  Hence the looking askance.

Now even though Delia is our little tom boy who thinks pretty outfits are silly and a waste of time, she will agree to wear something special if she can't tell it's anything but a collar. So I made her a sweet little peter pan collar, too! Since she would never tolerate a brain protector, I added a bow to her collar.  All the materials from this came from my stash, too. WOO!

A closer shot on her:

I found a package waiting for me when I got home from work last night (I work evenings so it was quite late).  Kayrun sent me such a wonderful box of goodies!!! 
This is the fantastic hoop she made for my hoopla wall!!

It's so beautifully done!!  Who doesn't eat The Princess Bride!?  (I'll be honest, I wouldn't quite trust the person who doesn't.)   Grin
Then she spoiled me with extras!!!
a fabulous and sweet knitted mushroom for my mantel!!

I eat the red and grey color combination!  The corner of my mantel is now filled with gorgeous fungi!!  It makes my smile to see it!!
And she also made a pretty toy for my cat!

He loves it!

Thank you so much, Kayrun!!  Your beautiful and thoughtful gifts have helped me stretch my birthday out far more than I deserve.   Cheesy  I eat it all!!!
