Not such a good month for sewing for me. I've only got one non Doctor Who creation. Halloween in colors, but not so much in subject. It is an original drawing by my niece that I stitched for her and she chose the colors (fits her all things goth and Halloween preferences).

Got mine finished last night. It was meant to be a gift but I really like it...

I know I have been MIA form this thread since saying I wanted to join, but since I acquired a new job I felt the need to spend more time stitching and less time chatting. Smiley Finally started on this month hoop yesterday so here's my limited progress pic. I am hoping with a little bit of time every night this week (hubby is working extra) I will get it done before the month ends!

14  Dresser to Desk in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ostera15 on: April 04, 2012 08:18:20 AM
We bought this dresser for my daughter when she was a toddler (about 10 years ago) and it finally became to small to hold everything and since her desk was "little kid" size as well I took the dresser and turned it into a "big girl" (don't tell her I said that!) desk.

It turned out to be a lot easier than I expected, the hardest part was waiting for drying times.  Grin
And since I used the hardware from the the dresser the only thing I had was the paint and polyacrylic.

She picked out the stencils and I used the paint we had leftover from painting her room:

I also gave her a chalkboard square (2 tablespoons unsanded grout and between 3/4 and a cup of any paint)

There are more progress pictures and information on my blog if anyone is interested.
Thanks for looking!

15  Hugs in Completed Projects by ostera15 on: February 25, 2012 07:13:16 PM
Since my husband is in the military we have moved away from many of your friends. One of my friends has been having a rough year and I wanted to be able to give her a hug. So I made her this and sent it out without telling her.

In addition to the rules/goals of the challenge I wanted to use more stash or personal items and do less shopping, so the blocks I used are actually mine from when I was a kid! The only things I ended up buying were the red paint and the glue. The short details: I spray painted all the blocks black, painted on the white and red details with acrylics, glued them around the frame, gave it a clear coat and inserted scrapbook paper into the frame (inserting the chocolates was the hardest, only because I wanted to eat them).

I made sure when I put it together that I did it right-side up so it could be used as either a small candy dish or as a picture frame.

My friend actually got it in the mail yesterday was was super surprised and happy! I love it when I can make someones day!

If anyone is interested in the how-tos of it I posted it in my blog: http://yellowhouseon3rd.blogspot.com/2012/02/random-acts-of-crafty-kindness.html

It's been awhile since I posted anything, but I have been busy. And congrats to the May challenge winner!

First off I reconed the half used comp notebooks that the kids brought home at the end of the school year:

Then I tried out a few different patterns for market bags:

One pillow case:

Two pillow case (from instructables website):

The market bag from Joann's website;

Group shot:

I think I like the two pillow case one the best, it was easy to make and works good for the thin pillow cases that I seem to have a bunch of.

I finished one of the three sets of name letters I'm making, the A was a pain to stuff, so thinking about changing the font:

And the top of a novelty fabric lap quilt for a friend's birthday (I plan on finishing it this weekend):

19  Comp notebook recons in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ostera15 on: June 10, 2010 01:26:34 PM
I took all those half used composition notebooks that the kids bring home from school at the end of the year and turned them into travel notebooks for our cross country trip.

For those of you that may not know what notebooks I'm talking about here's a before pic:

I kept two sets of covers and all the unused pages. And added to that some calender pages from last year and a ribbon. After spending lots of quality time with a hole punch, and a sore hand later, the final product:

Thanks for looking!

Love the crochet work!

First project of June is done. My hubby got me a DSI XL (bigger then reg DSI) for my birthday and being unable to find a case I liked I made one. Don't mind the lopsidedness, straight lines and I don't get along well, but I'm working on it!

All closed up outside:

And the inside:
