I haven't made a Teesha Moore bag. But my wall hanging was lined. It was no easy task because my squares weren't straight. I would think it wouldn't be too bad in a bag with straight edges. I'd do like a drop in lining. Course I don't know how you'd finish the top. That's why I opted for a wall hanging.  Undecided

sheepBlue, congrats on opening up your shop!

I've finished some more projects! First up is a custom stenciled shirt in STS

Next, a swap item that has been received. It's a Doctor Who pillow cover.

Here's my favorite square from it - Allons-y!

I should have another cover to show you shortly! They were sent on the same day and silentblair received yesterday, so Britta Bear should receive soon!

Taking a break from swapping to focus on crafting for myself, friends, and charity

Oh my, I've been such a slacker. I read this thread everyday, but haven't accomplished much crafting so far.
Everyone is making such awesome things, it gets my mind racing in all different directions. But the my daughter goes racing in all different directions too, and that's the end of that  Tongue

I bead a bit on the train on my way to work, so I made some more beaded rings, I'll try to get some pictures today.
One of my goals this year is to try to cook more and try out more recipes.
I tried this simple tomato sauce recipe this week and it turned out pretty yummy:
I didn't take a picture, it's just red Smiley
I might make some modifications next time (I did follow the comments and kept the onion, no reason to discard a perfectly yummy bit), to better match the taste buds of thus household, but I will be making this again.

April was full of getting things ready for my weekend away. 
My swap project was an epic fail :'(I need to redo it this week.
My truck broke down, so all extra funds are going to that
I lost a filling and it needed a root canal and crown, funds not needed pulled for truck will be going to that
I need to have all 4 wisdom teeth - luckily my parents are helping me out here.

So all in all, ALL craft projects must come from on hand stuff and I won't be swapping to much.

On the plus, the party was great and although I didn't get everything done, the stuff not finished can be used my the next party.

Looking for 100% Cotton scraps.  Miss G wants to make a scrap quilt for as little $ as possible, so if you have something that she could use, please pm me.

Pillow cover looks great! And a lot of work with all that embroidery and patchwork!

I love a simple tomato sauce!  I can't wait to get my tomato plants into the garden in a few weeks!

The Dr. Who pillow is wonderful...I think it is fun to have projects from a movie or show you like to show your enthusiasm!  ha ha showing our geek side! Cheesy
You did a lovely job on that!

Ok - I had wanted to get this posted before I went to the mountains for the wedding but that didn't happen.  I'm such a slacker.  lol.  So here are the pictures of the autumny gored skirt that I finished last week and was a hit around town this weekend!



So there ya go!  I'm up to 17 projects!  Go me!  Still chuggin away on the wedding afghan.  And I'm adding Tapestry crocheted coasters to my list of projects to do!  Huzzah!

Thanks waggonswest!

meleriffic - Tapestry crochet is also called Jaquard or (in knitting) fair isle.  Its working 2 or more colors at once and twisting them to make a certain color appear on the outside of the work.  I'm going to use cotton yarn and make some drink coasters I think.  It can be worked back and forth or in a circle.  Everything I've ever seen says that its better to work in a circle.  So I'm thinking that circle about 4 or 5 inches across with a piece of cork adhered to the bottom should do the trick.
