191  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gigantic Candy Cane on: December 08, 2006 07:25:38 AM
This is another item I found while decorating yesterday.  I made it a few years ago and the pattern was from the Crafting Traditions magazine.

It's 24" from the bottom to the top of the curve.

192  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Christmas Lights on: December 07, 2006 01:41:18 PM
I was decorating this morning and found some lights I had made a few years ago and thought I would share them with you.  They were originally meant for a swap but once I was done them, I just couldn't part with them  Grin

This is about 1/4 of the string

and, a single 'bulb'

I should add that this is not my own design - it was from a pattern.
193  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for suggestions on how to border my purple/yellow quilt on: November 27, 2006 06:40:58 PM
I've been collecting purple and yellow fabric since the month after I joined Craftster in January (all through swaps) and I'm now done piecing all the squares and am in the process of putting them together.  That part, when finished, will cover just the top of a queen size bed but I want to add a border so that it hangs down the sides.  That's where I'm kind of stuck.  I'm using a pinwheel pattern and have approximately 40 different yellows and 40 different purples all mixed together.  What I can't decide is what to do for a border - should I use a solid yellow, printed yellow, solid purple, printed purple or introduce a totally different color?

Any suggestions?

194  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My 3 teapots on: November 08, 2006 11:30:43 AM
I used to do lots of cross stitch when I was younger but then left it behind when I learned other crafts.  A few years ago, my sister-in-law gave me this teapot for my birthday:


and I really liked it and when she told me that she had other patterns, I borrowed the book and over time have completed 2 more:


I have another one on the go which I hope to finish soon and a few more I'd like to make.
195  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Farm Fresh Produce on: November 08, 2006 11:24:17 AM
Yet another project I have painted (this new computer is so much fun!)

196  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3 snowmen projects on: November 08, 2006 11:20:59 AM
Now that we have a computer at home that can handle my sons camera, I'm having fun posting pictures of things I've made Grin

These are 3 snowmen projects that I have painted over the last few years.

           In my dining room:

                                  In my kitchen:


This is a shelf sitter and he's usually on the opening between our kitchen and living room but the lighting was so poor there, I had to put him on the china cabinet:

197  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stacked penguins on: November 08, 2006 07:51:29 AM
It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.

198  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Thing ? on: November 06, 2006 07:51:13 AM
I participated in five One Tiny Thing swaps and then they seemed to disappear.  I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in doing another one of these and what do you think would be good timing for it - before or after Christmas?
199  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pink Pinwheels on: October 16, 2006 07:01:30 PM
I used this same pinwheel pattern in a quilt I made earlier this year and absolutely loved it so when I found that I had collected a rather large amount of pinks, I knew just what to do.  The other color is dark blue with stars on it.

Friends just had a baby girl so it's going to them soon!

200  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Baseball Scarecrow on: October 04, 2006 06:26:48 PM
I made this scarecrow out of a baseball (not one that belonged to my sons, no way! Mom had to buy her own!)

It's resting on a cardboard ring which I covered in fabric so it looks like a plaid shirt, complete with bow tie.  Then I topped it off with some straw, a straw hat and flowers.
