11  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / [IN PROGRESS] Ads appearing at the bottom of pictures in threads on: May 16, 2017 02:08:32 AM
I thought that I had screwed up uploading, but the ads are dynamic, they move and change. I can click the little x to get rid of them, but while I was editing my response in a thread (vikings and ninjas swap gallery thread) the ad appeared at the bottom of someone else's picture.  (I took photos on my mobile, uploaded them to the desktop on my PC and to craftster via the quick insert photo option. )

Is this a new thing, because it is horrible?

I have 'advertising turned off' but I can cope with flashing ads in the sidebars, but in the middle of a thread, is too much.

is it just me? am I cookie infested.

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Vikings, Pirates, & Ninjas Swap Rd 2 GALLERY on: May 16, 2017 01:54:51 AM
yay!!! we had given up the package from RovingAnarchist for lost, it has taken weeks, i am not sure what corner it got hung up in, but it is finally, unexpectedly here and boy was it worth the wait. She completely spoiled me.

She incredibly generously made garb for me and my SO!!! Viking garb for reneactment.
 First out was this viking apron for me with a matching hood.
 In my colours and with my family motif embroidered on both the apron and the hood.
 I love love love this and it would be completely more than enough by itself.
 


but there is more.
Another embroidered item, this time a tunic for my SO, his jaw dropped when he saw it, the battle axes are his family symbol, he loves this.



and of course that is way more than enough right?

not in RovingAnarchist's head, (she was an awesome partner)



She made this amazing smelling moisturiser and infused it with lots of viking magic, I wish this were a scratch and sniff screen, because it smells divine!! Plus some more viking magic in a grisgris bag.

And if that weren't enough some candy a brilliant huge chocolate coin and maple syrup candy (yum) plus some smarties and kitkats...also very yummy.

And even more!!! I know! This really interesting book of legends. And some gorgeous smelling cinnamon candles.

Thank you so much RovingA This package rocks, and I am so glad that after all the work you put into it that it is in my gleeful hands and not in some dusty post office somewhere.

I sooo wish I could go and meet all of you! Jealous jealous!


well clearly you all have to rob a bank or something, I want to meet all the craftsters!, I will be meeting a few on the way, as we will be having a mini-meetup in NC, so my US tour will have these sparkly craftster shaped highlights.

I second that emotion...

This is gorgeous, I love the pattern, I have to make a baby quilt so I might use this pattern as his older brother has a quilt made by me and it is a coin stack quilt. but it will be similar fabrics.

But I LOVE the backing fabric, it is awesome! It would make a great whole quilt project with some embroidered embellishments.

this is gorgeous, the fox is great. The chair has lovely bones which you can really see now with that aqua paint.

tuffet interfacing on a roll, who knew such a thing existed.

mind you every time I read the word tuffet..or type it (I have never typed tuffet so many times before in my life) I think of little Miss Muffet. In this part of the world we would call that a footstool.

Whatever you call it, I love it, when you mentioned it in the hp thread I thought youjust recovered it, I didn't realise that you made it from scratch, colour me seriously impressed!

The inprogress pix are great, what did you use to stuff it with? Is there an internal frame. I am guessing a round board at the bottom that the feet screw into, is it just wadding on top with the fabric over and pulled down with the button?
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question quilters living in Europe, where do you buy batting online? on: May 10, 2017 02:08:27 AM
I use a number of different things.

1- old woollen blankets from charity shops, there is an Irish brand that is really really good quality, not made any more I think, but you can often pick them up. I clean them and use them. They approximate the really expensive woollen batting. Heavy, but they don't drape as well as other fabrics.

2- regular 1 inch polyester batting, most places carry this. This is light and puffy, so it gives a good loft to the quilt.

3- my new favourite thing to use is cheap fleece blankets, I buy them in a discount department store. They work brilliantly, they can be a bit fluffy. loosing fluff everywhere when you cut the edges. But they are super soft and really drapeable and way way cheaper than batting. In my opinion they make the best batting because of this. Plus being polyester they don't shrink and I have never known them to bleed colour. The only problem can sometimes be finding a pale blanket if it is going underneath pale patchwork fabric.

Oohh very nice. It's generally not too difficult to figure out a pattern from this kind of thing. Transfer it to graph paper. (I tend to just tape the paper over the computer screen, works as a good impromptu light box. Cut out all the pieces and add seam allowance. The tricky part is figuring out how to get the most out of your fabric, and the sewing sequence.

I am with Mare Mare I prefer the top one with cats in a definite block, the other one is too busy for my tastes.

Hey guys, we had talked briefly about our next challenge for the Quilting board and I worked on some details today with the challenge sponsor. She is able to ship internationally,

that is pretty cool, there are always so many wonderful competitions online and so very few of them ship internationally. Not that I would win, but there is no point in entering if you don't have a slender chance of winning.


And I know just the project for this challenge...
