FEBRUARY CHALLENGE NEWS!

I just finished the February talley of projects!  Man, what a creative bunch!
Did you know that there were 100 pages of posts between January 24 and February 24?  18 full pages of pictures!

I was amazed at how many people had ten or more projects! There were over 256 projects made...more if you count multiples of certain things!

Sheepblue made the most projects with 19 projects...

well, unless we want to count batgirl's 1000 cranes! Cheesy

We had knitting, crocheting, quilting, painting, jewelry-making, spinning, paper crafts, toys, clothing, household items, needlework, bath and beauty, and cooking!

We had huge projects like quilts and afghans and small projects like amigurumi and rings! We had stuff for pets and babies!

We had people try new things and we had people botch things!  Cheesy

We learned some new words: dodecathingamabobbl e! nappy! doggers!  Shocked....

You guys need to pat each other and yourselves on the back!

I will be putting the names into random.org as many times as there are projects and let it select the winner!

Hope you are crafting for March...or, taking a mini break...what a great collective achievement...to those who did not craft a lot, thanks for supporting everyone and commenting kindly on the projects... Kiss

I also hope we have gotten to know each other a bit better and developed some online friendship...it has been a lot of work and fun for me, but worth it all!

ok...end of rambling! Cheesy

It was awesome to review the projects...the variety and the effort put into the projects tugged at my heart...so many were gifts for family, friends and fellow craftsters...it was heartwarming to know we share our talents with the world...

There was a lot of color and beauty...believe me, I got the better end of the deal Wink...but thanks for encouraging and enabling me to craft and be inspired!

Goodness! We are a prolific bunch! Imagine what the end of year summary like that will be like!  Shocked

Instead of getting around to making Miss Five a second headband last night, I made a hat by request for a friend. These tassle hats were the first things I made back when I started crocheting, and even though I think they are pretty old hat now, people seem to love them, and I still get requests for them.

Whoa! 256 projects, huh? That's amazing!

I finally got Sewfia going and finished Rev 2 of the pencil roll for DD:

The buttons on the elastic loops for eraser and sharpener were her idea and choice, to help grasp and maneuver while putting the stuff in/taking it out.
Closed, pretty standard:


It's a roll-o-firsts for me, thanks at least in part to Alwaysinmyroom adding the "fearless" clause to the March challenge." I decided NOT to play it safe and just instead just PLAY!  Grin

--first applique and first attempt at "chenille"

--first attempt at freemotion swirly quilting, inspired by mugrugs here:

(My only other attempt at quilting was the lines on the first pencil roll a few weeks ago!)
--first attempt at metal stamping for the ID thing, on some random metal piece I found...about 5 hours after I stumbled over the little punches at Harbor Freight:


What I learned:
--don't sew without a fabric-batting-fabric "sandwich," or the batting will fuzz up the right side!!
--It's hard to free-motion quilt in slow-mo...notice (or please DON'T) the irregular stitch sizes. I finally learned just to floor it and mooooove freely.
--that there's probably a Rev 3 in the near future, since the last little pencil slip is too tiny to really hold anything.

oooh that pencil holder is great... I wonder if my artist stepdaughter would like one.  We bought her a marker "wallet" for her copics... but maybe a nice roll for pencils for sketching on the go...  I like the elastic to hold erasers a sharpener.

I think the elastic holders for a sharpener and eraser are brilliant!  It is so wonderful what comes out of our brains when we free ourselves from the "rules"! Cheesy

I was making a gift that requires pencils...I think now I will add a place for an eraser and sharpener as well!

I also wanted to comment on the cute Irish pillows!  The entire set is very charming!  Are they a gift to someone?
