11  Re: ANOTHER Pin Cushion Swap Round 10 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by QuiltersBlock on: January 09, 2009 12:56:34 PM
I'm the first to receive and have to say, stacysews has set the bar really, really high!

This is a super cute, incredibly cool cactus pin cushion! 

Some little hands helping:

She was so excited!! She could hardly keep still, so I let her help open the package.

This gives you an idea of it's size:

My "artsy" shot...

There was also a little flower pin stuck on (you can see it in the second picture), but with tyke handling it, I had to pull off that cute little pin.

It's so flipping cute!! I love it. Absolutely love it!

Stacy, thank you so very, very much! I love it and if my tyke allows, I'll put it to good use! (Just kidding, she'll nap soon and I can take it back from her then.  Cheesy)

12  Re: House M.D. Swap 2.0 Gallery of WONDERMENT! in The Swap Gallery by QuiltersBlock on: January 03, 2009 10:01:34 PM
Check out the loot from Nesse!! These are fabulous, absolutely fabulous!

There's a zippered pouch with an amazing stencil of the the House logo, a coffee sleeve that's embroidered with "Better be careful. I've got a full bladder and I'm not afraid to use it." ha ha, some candies and not one, but *two* tote bags stenciled with greg and "it's not lupus" -- these are so flipping cool!

Close up of one bag:

Seriously, these are fantastic! The stencils are really, really well done. I'll be taking Greg shopping with me from now on....I'll never have to leave my House. ha ha. get it? House. Leave my house.  Wink

Thank you so much Nesse!

Big thank you to Mabelheartscharlie, too, for hosting such a fun swap!

13  Spider-man hat and scarf in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by QuiltersBlock on: January 01, 2009 10:02:05 AM
Finally getting around to posting hubby's Spider-man Christmas haul! He'd been bugging me to make him a hat like this (our tyke has one, not spidey though); he didn't know that I'd already made this and was planning to give it as a present. It's made from an old t-shirt that he'd received as a Christmas gift a few years ago and some black fleece. Wish I'd thought to use the blue stuff. *sigh* He loves it.

The picture is rotated -- the point at the bottom is actually the top of the hat. The picture just looks miles cooler this way!  Wink

Anyway, he also received a spidey inspired scarf. The spider is embroidered on red fleece, then backed with blue fleece and serged around the edges. My 21y/o daughter did the embroidery on this one. Here's a modeled shot of both pieces:

He's been wearing them all week. Guess that means he likes them!

14  Super raglan for a Supergirl! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by QuiltersBlock on: December 30, 2008 03:27:54 PM
DH and our tyke went to the park this morning (yes, it is December in Nebraska - but the weather's been decent the last few days!) and I got to do some sewing room stuff. I traced a pattern from Ottobre (1/2006, #17), and this afternoon during tyke's naptime, I managed to get it sewn up!

I think it's Supercute (ha ha). The hem and sleeve ends need to be rolled, but I have to get some black serger thread. How do I not have black serger thread?!

Supergirl raglan shirt - size 98


I'm so excited! This is the first thing I've sewn this week! It's done entirely on the sewing machine because of the lack of the aforementioned black serger thread. (Seriously, it's a *basic color* for gosh sakes!)

She should be waking up in a few minutes...hopefully she likes it, too.

15  Chocolate Turkey in Dessert by QuiltersBlock on: November 26, 2008 06:30:48 PM
Not turkey covered in chocolate, but a turkey *made* of chocolate, candies that is!

Use chocolate chips (head), malted milk balls (body), chocolate stars (feet and tail feathers), and a tiny bit of red gel (wattle). There's also a little bit of coconut dyed green for 'grass.' You have to scrape a little bit off the top of the stars, but melt that chocolate a bit and use it to glue the pieces together. Also, use a drop of melted chocolate to keep the turkey stuck to a plate.

There's my tyke, patiently waiting for me to tell her she can eat the chocolate turkey. When I said 'yes' guess what she did? Yep, "gobble gobble" LOL (I crack me up sometimes.)

16  Holiday/Anytime reversible skirts v2.0 lots o' pix in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by QuiltersBlock on: November 21, 2008 09:33:50 AM
I've been making these skirts for a few days now...they're really simple and cute, and I just love how they *feel* - the weight of them is ideal and they have a great twirly factor.

So far I've done four or five of these. In just a week. All different.

This one's got a pretty kid toile on one side and a fun gingerbread making print on the other, and black with white dot 'hem' (the other skirts have bias tape edging).

Tyke's at Montessori, so no modeling shots yet.

Proof of reversibility:

Going over to the other side:

Fun, huh? This way she'll get more wear out of it than if it were *just* a holiday skirt!

17  It's all Greek to me! in Completed Projects by QuiltersBlock on: October 14, 2008 06:15:27 PM
DH is a total geek. He's a maths professor, has developed a major computer program, and has been learning ancient Greek for the last five years. That's just the tip of the geek iceberg, too.

He wants to support his favorite candidate, but was saddened that there was no Greek version of the Obama bumper sticker. So he made one. Well, technically it's a digital sticker, but you get the point.

Should I get it made up? Should I go so far as to put it on our car?! That would make him very, very happy.

eta: not trying to start a political debate, just showing off hubby's craftyness.

18  Johnny Depp for the Toddler set *lots o' pics* in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by QuiltersBlock on: October 14, 2008 01:43:06 PM
Anyone remember 21 Jump Street? Or am I the oldest person on this board?!

Six months ago, I bought a boxy, man's shirt at the thrift store. I'm not a huge fan of JD, but I liked the b/w photo, and figured I could "pretty up" the shirt somehow.

Finally was inspired yesterday. Self-drafted pattern. Tunic length (because I'd already cannibalized the bottom of the shirt for something else). The sleeves used to be a pair of leggings! I liked the picot trim, so kept that, and set the pattern piece from the hem.

Close up of picture and neckline:

This gives you an idea of the length:

The (RTW) leggings she's wearing are *perfect* with the top! Even better: we already owned them! They're capri length, so she won't get to wear them often -- it's getting cold here.

19  Happy Birthday doctor who? in Dessert by QuiltersBlock on: October 03, 2008 01:06:59 PM
DH isn't a real doctor, merely a PhD   Wink (inside joke)

Anyway, we're big Who-ligans over here, so what better than a TARDIS cake for my doctor. Carrot cake from scratch - first time *ever* - and instead of one big loaf, I made nine individual loaves. Eight of them were regular, but one was special:

It's not bigger on the inside, just yummier!

We had company last night for a Dinner, Dessert & Debate evening. The regular cakes were a big hit. I was in a hurry to do the TARDIS thing, after company left and before DH came into the kitchen, so it's not ideal, more like a prototype for the 'real' cake on Sunday.

Oh, can't forget the recipe. Lots of raves. I used Walnut Oil and it is fantastic! Also, I lurve carrot cake that doesn't have raisins!

20  Re: Fill-a-Box 9 Supply Stash Buster Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by QuiltersBlock on: September 17, 2008 11:55:17 AM
I was totally spoiled by imwomn13! How she managed to get that much fabric into that postal box is beyond me! It was *packed* solid....

The light never got any better today, so just be aware that the pictures do no justice to the fabulous fabrics.

There are over 40 different fabrics (not counting the vintage squares!). It's all *yummy* too!

Yes, that's Strawberry Shortcake. And Ikea stripes on the bottom. Whoooo hooooo!

Sugar Skulls! VW bugs and vans! Betty Boop! Sesame Street!

Close up:

And a whole bag full of vintage 4x4 squares! I can't decide if they should be put together for a little quilt or used separately for applique:

imwomn13, thank you so much! What a fantastic package full of amazing fabrics! Thank you!!
