61  Wall Letters for Future Niece in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by audrey1999 on: February 26, 2008 03:23:14 PM
I am going to be an aunt in May and am having a little too much fun making things for this future niece of mine.  When I am finally finished, I will compile all of her projects together.  This is the newest addition:  Wall Letters.  Right now they are sitting on my floor because I am not sure how I want/or how they would want to hang them.  Her name is Savannah.  I used this tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=213298.0  Thanks thankyoulocust

Her nursery will be in pink and green.  Let me know what you think! he..he..flipped "s" in third picture

62  Pink floral on black totebag but reversible! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by audrey1999 on: February 22, 2008 06:48:29 PM
I made a totebag for my MIL's birthday coming up next week. This is the second totebag I have made. I am enjoying it too much I think.  It is reversible!
Closeup of the bag showing outside and lining:

Pink flower on black background side:

Striped fabric on the outside: (I don't know why photobucket won't flip this but...and it is not as long as it appears in this picture-refer to others for approximate size Huh

I used this tutorial:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52143.0
Let me know what you think!

I posted way too soon!  This is my package from xx_bumblebee_xx.  I was distraught that we had no mail for me, but the postman was really late on his rounds today, and I received!  Check it out, I was spoiled!   (HeeHee...how cool is it when both partners completely love their packages)
Here is the complete package: (It keeps coming out weird on photobucket-so link to thumbnail from craftster.  Of course, now I post it and notice everything is reversed?  weird.)

Notice the tag hanging for my library card!  Easy access!
Here is a close up of two of my new fabulous bookmarks:   

The elastic one is so cool because it won't fall out of your book.
But wait!  I received three bookmarks, so here is the beautiful bead one again with a corner bookmark.  These both use handmade paper.

My absolute favorite part is the tree stenciled on the bag which she handdyed this fabulous green!

The two books I received were Riding in Cars with Boys:Confessions of a bad girl who makes good by Beverly Donofrio and Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt.  I read Riding in Cars with Boys this past weekend (it was shipped seperately) and it is really good.  Keturah and Lord Death appears equally good.  On the opening page it includes this quote from Emily Dickinson:
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me; 
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

Spooky, eh?

Awesome package!  Plus she repeated this floral motif on everything.  Look closely in the pictures and you will see it!

64  Baby Bibs with Matching Burp Clothes (img heavy) in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by audrey1999 on: February 18, 2008 07:56:15 PM
Hi everyone!  My brother is expecting a little girl in May, and I have been busily making presents for the new little one.  Here are some bibs and burp cloths that I made.
Two bibs with four matching burp cloths:  (The bibs are showing front and back; they are identical.)

One dog bib and matching burp cloth:

One green and purple bib with burp cloth:

I have a couple more in the works; Can a baby have too many bibs and burp cloths?
I think probably not, but this is the first baby I will be an aunt to, so I don't really know.  What do you think?

About the swap - I think I've finally had a break through and have figured out what I'm making for all three items... now just got to get started... gulp!
Yeah for me!  (I am rakechan's partner Smiley)
I think I know what I am going to do for this swap.

 I just finished my first tote bag ever for the "Reading Rainbow Swap" .  It turned out way better than I thought it would.  I used interfacing for the first time ever!  I am currently working on making tons of bibs and burp clothes for my brother who is currently expecting in May.  I will be an aunt for the the first time!  My husband and I bought a little table and chairs for the wee one which I am going to paint for a shower gift before May. 

(This is the table and chairs waiting to be painted in our guest bedroom)
Expect to see pictures on Craftster at some point of the finished work....

If I feel brave, I might post pictures of my crafting area.

I received my last two postcards this past weekend!  Here they are:
A great postcard from cassetetape (the one kahlan posted is the same, and her picture is much better)

This is from susanab:  a fabric postcard made from felt with snowflakes! Smiley

This was a lot of fun!
Susanab:  you should have received two postcards from me, did one get lost?
Cassettetape:  Have you received my postcards?  I sent yours, susanab, and kahlan cards all on the same day.  Interesting study in how long it takes from different cities..anyone? Smiley
(I used to live in a very small town in Alabama and my parents lived in Dallas.  My mail would usually take a week to get there.  Now I am in Denver and my parents are in Birmingham--two days! Now that is impressive.)

67  Re: Show off your TREE, Mantle, Or other HOLIDAY decor! in Winter Holidays by audrey1999 on: December 09, 2007 08:36:29 PM
Here is our tree with a ton of books as gifts underneath.  It is about 4' tall.  We have a tradition of decorating the tree with places that we have visited.  I collect ornaments from the spots regardless of however may times we go.  Therefore, I might go to Mesa Verde once and New Orleans 7 times but I might only have one New Orleans ornament.  I also might have ten, it all depends on what is available at any given moment and what is cool!

The little tree...

War Eagle!  I went to school here, as did my husband, and my dad, and my brother, and my cousin, and my other cousin....(I could seriously go on forever...)

Many trips to wonderful New Orleans--I think 7 times?...

Great place to see!  Definitely puts you in perspective in terms of how people used to live.  Breathtaking....

Who doesn't love a moose?

68  Mock Cathedral Window Rag Quilt for Mom! (img heavy) in Quilting: Completed Projects by audrey1999 on: December 09, 2007 12:15:52 PM
I just pulled this finished quilt out of the washer for the final fraying.  I started this in  August and worked on it on and off since then.  I cursed my 1970's Kenmore throughout the entire project and finally realized I was not threading it correctly.  I did not have a manual, so i didn't know!  Since I finally learned how to thread it, it sews beautifully.  It is lap blanket size.

69  Flannel Patchwork Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by audrey1999 on: December 07, 2007 01:28:40 PM
I am making an assortment of presents for my "soon to be a dad" brother.  I just finished this flannel patchwork quilt for him.  It is made of flannel 6" patches and a chenille like fabric backing.  It is a little wonky but I think it will be okay.  Another present completed!

and all bundled up, ready to go!

Hey everyone! I got home late last night after a long day and received a postcard from Kahlan. Look how pretty it is.  I love embroidery! Thanks Kahlan Grin  It is hanging in a place of pride on my fridge so everyone can admire it!
(It is really a light blue, but the flash darkens it a little.)
