I was pages behind, but I do want to say those socks are gorgeous! I love your fox embroidery, too, AlishaMisha!

Here's one project off my list: felted sweater flower pins (say that 10 times fast!)


On my winter coat:


I also made a scarf from parts of the same sweaters:

Thank You girls  Grin The fox was fun to make. Embroidery is really relaxing! Great tv/movie watching project.

rackycoo - Love those roses! I have a thing for pinned flowers whether felted, knit or crocheted. They are too cute.

I need to try using a filler stitch like that.  I've mastered satin, running and back stitch.  Here shortly I'll be attempting lazy daisies.
Actually the fox is all back stitches. I just did various length to give the effect of fur. I know other stitches too but I didn't find a need to use them for this hoopla If you learn the chain stitch you already know how to do a lazy daisy, so I suggest learning that.  Wink

I didn't pay much attention because I'm trying not to create more crafts to do just so I can enter more, but I remember that entry option because one of my flood auction dragons was entered for that reason.
Same here, even though my last 4 project qualified. I made the tea wallet so my mom could travel with her tea when we leave for FL soon. The fabric was picked out about 3 years ago but I just never got around to it. Because of the trip I have to get my nieces items made because we are having her baby shower when we get back. And for the fox, well that was red for obvious reasons. Though I must say that if these colors for me didn't happen by chance the challenge would be a great motivator for me. But in my situation I am only getting them done because I have a timeline before I leave (which just happens to be when the challenge ends).

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Love the rose pins and the fox hoop.

Man I need to stop looking around the internet. I just found a ton more projects I want to try. I don't think I will ever ever complete even half of the things I want to do, because the list grows nonstop.

The roses turned out great!

Love the little pockets at the end of the felted scarf!  What a cute detail!

Those flowers are SO easy to make. I used this tutorial. It's for paper flowers, but the process is the same. You just keep taking little stitches in the bottom to keep things together. And I started with a cd sized circle instead of a square.
