Well, not all of my lines are perfect.  Where the lines meet, there are a lot of places where the fabric is a bit puckered, but that kind of just increases the crinkliness.  I think it helps that I pinned the quilt a lot before I started.

I love it!  The color is nice and the pattern is really pretty.  Smiley
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Slackers Quilted Throw on: September 11, 2010 10:01:51 AM
Here is my latest slacker quilted throw, and my first one that I'm keeping!  Grin

Everything except for the binding is from my stash; the batting was left over from a throw I made my friends, the blues were from quite a few different sources, and the backing was an old blue sheet someone gave me.  I'm very lazy about quilts, I like large blocks and have not bothered to get a quilting foot.  However, my bad stitching kind of helps to give it that crinkly quality I like, so I just tell myself it's a "feature".  Wink

It's by far not a fancy quilt, but it's nice for snuggling on the couch under!

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Painted Top Coffee Table on: September 11, 2010 09:55:43 AM
When I got my first unfurnished college apartment, I got a bunch of real cheap stuff at Ikea, including a LACK coffee table.  After about 4 years, my little coffee table had seen better days, so I started looking out for a cheap one on Craigslist that I could refinish.

I really lucked out by finding a great little coffee table for $5!  Grin  I love the drawer (perfect for my husband's Xbox controllers and remote) and the shelf.  The table was solid wood and was in great shape except for the top; the top was a thin veneer and was quite chipped up and water stained from the previous owners.  Since it wasn't really a candidate for staining, I decided to just paint the top.  After a couple coats of spray primer, a spray paint (I decided I wasn't in the mood to brush), and quite a few coats of wipe-on poly, here it is:

Not a very impressive or difficult redo, but it certainly did brighten up my living room!  Smiley

I'd definitely second the idea to use mesh.  It would really help fill up that middle space as well as create a ton more earring storing potential.  Smiley

Looks great!  I like the combo of fabrics you used.  Smiley

And congrats on the new sewing machine!

That is so awesome!  I can't believe that someone actually did that!  Cheesy  You definitely take the cake!
