Crafting is a state of mind.

One more on the books for me - a sweatshirt made from a Jalie pattern, which is a new experience since there's no words in those patterns, only pictures!  Unfortunately this is the best picture I got last night...


But heres a better one on the floor.


I think if I make it again I'll go down a size, but I'm not 100% sold on the detail on the front on me.  There is a shawl collar option that it might look better with though.  It's perfectly good for around the house, and somewhere there's a Kenneth King quote about having to destroy acres of fabric before mastering sewing, so I'm not too worried about it not being perfect!

You guys are blowing my mind with all the amazing projects on this board!  I can't even keep up with the amount of awesomeness.

Those carvings are amazing, pinokeeo.  You deserve that blue ribbon!

If anyone is interested in learning how to make their own cheese, pop on over here.

Bookmarked  Grin I love cheeses and would love to make my own. I need to find a recipe that doesn't use a microwave though as ours blew up just before Xmas and we haven't been able to replace it yet  Roll Eyes

Looks great Fishstix, I love the colour.
Are the Jalie patterns complicated? I've seen a few I would like but always worry I'll be out of my depth!

Lovely stuff guys!

Pinokeeo - what wonderful wood working skills.  I bet any parent would love those cars - wooden toys have such a charm to them.  I bet those spirals would look gorgeous on a tree at christmas.

MellyBelly - lovely baby!  Though wouldn't they count as a WIP from 2012? Tongue

I like the hoodie Fishstix - it looks cozy

Quaggy, your lunch type totes look very useful. I like how you used burlap with gingham fabric. The fabric crate covers are pretty.

Sheepblue, very interesting tutorial on screen printing.

Pinokeeo, I love all your wood carvings, especially the long hollow spiral ones. What kind of wood do you use?
That's a very big ribbon you won!

Missingwillow, I have wanted to try making cheese for many years now. I have always heard of the smelly "Camembert" my great-grandma used to make and how the family got a lot of space traveling in train when they took these cheese out of the bag. I don't intend to make such a smelly cheese. I have only tried making cheese once, I followed an online recipe with lemon and goat milk but it didn't work. I probably should have found some rennet. Your tutorial for mozzarella is just what I needed to try again.

fishstix43, your sweater looks very comfy. I like the color you choose.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

The wood that I use for most of my carvings is basswood.  It has no grain to speak of, is a soft wood, easy to carve.

I like the hoodie.  Nice work.

I also like the tute for the cheese.  We live in the country and can buy raw milk, so I might try this.

My next installment is spoons.  Hand carved spoons.  I found a spoon carving tool that is curved so that you can get all the way to the bottom of the spoon bowl, so I thought I'd try these.  Carved from cherrywood.  Not as easy as basswood, but it's food safe.

All the wood carved items are amazing. I especially love those spoons. If you made them out of non food safe wood, they could always be painted like the Scandinavian spoons.

That wood carving is gorgeous!  The hollow spirals are amazing, and the spoons are practical - best of both worlds!

You are so lucky to be able to buy raw milk!  It's illegal here, which is why we own dairy goats.  We've not jumped into the dairy cow abyss just yet...

You both are lucky to have access to excellent milk.
