I apologize for being so long winded and gone for so long. So very much has been happening on the farm that I'm always “catchin and fetchin” as it were. I've been bouncing back and forth on what classes I'm getting done and then holding onto them so I can post them at least two at a time and in a row (yes... I am somewhat ocd) but it's getting overwhelming and I may just have to post everything to get it out of the way so I can breathe and focus. How on EARTH do you ladies manage to get some much crafting done and keep up with everything else!?! I see clean houses in the background of pics of awesome crafts!!! My house look like crafting hell opened up and swallowed it!!! rofl I give you ladies HUGE PROPS!!!! bows penitently
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy Class
Project Name: The Cursebreaker that chose me
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425950.0#axzz2aJW5ts5s
*While my Fiatelli is a project, it has been moved to the Sewing Machine discussion and questions thread and can now be found here ... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425950.0#axzz2aOcSjfp0
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I had planned a wonderful Arithmancy project. A diary for AnnoyingBigSister with a large, heavy padlock, wired to (clay) dynamite and vials where multicolored liquid poised to mix if a certain AnnoyingLittleBroth
er attempted to break into it. But then a cursebreaker chose me. Falling into my lap, needing to be rebuilt. A vintage Fiatelli, designed when people thought we would be driving flying cars and vacationing on the moon by now, sorely misused and tossed aside as worthless. Some 20 hours of work, disassembling, cleaning, rebuilding, rewiring, to again make it sing. The original switch disintegrated when I touched it. It showed signs that someone had taken it apart and reassembled many sections of it incorrectly. No part of it worked when it came to me. It now sews with ease, silently, with a rocking of my foot. Follow the link for more pictures.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy class
Project Name: Constellation curtain
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425951.0#axzz2aJwYTHxt
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) For my Astronomy class, in the Harry Potter Craftalong, I had to create something that honors the summer night sky. I decided to make a curtain that has the constellations on it that glows at night. I started with a sheer curtain. The same curtain that hangs in every front window of my home. *This* curtain was from my children's bedroom.
Sadly my camera would not take a picture of the curtain glowing in the dark. And it DOES. Very nicely. The kids LOVE it. And all the cars that pass get a little startled. "What the heck is that GLOWING in that house's WINDOW!!!???!!" lol
Class/Challenge/House Pride: *S.P.E.W.*
Project Name: Days for Girls Cloth Moonpads
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) There are 4 females in my house. I sew these because I have felt the panic of running out. I don't like that feeling.
I LOVE how these stack, nice and neat. They take SO much less space than the moon pads I have sewn for my family!!
