that are all deadlines and I get it done. But for me - there are no deadlines so I never get to make anything for me...

Maybe you need to fake-join a swap?

Hehe, that sounds like a good idea! Thank you! Now I'm going crafting:)

actually that is my biggest problem, swaps are easy because I have a theme and boundaries and a deadline..when it comes to things for me, i never seem to have inspiration..what do you do for inspiration???
As far as I'm concerned inspiration is not a problem: my needs are my inspiration Grin Wink. And what I like of course. My problem is the time: people have birthdays, there are hollidays, my nethew has a small operation tomorrow, my colegue is pregnant - that are all deadlines and I get it done. But for me - there are no deadlines so I never get to make anything for me...

Wow, this is gorgeous! I have two little girls and would LOVE to make them something like that but we live in a tiny miny apartment and all the walls are covered with furniture Tongue But when we move to a bigger place...

I love this guys! My bf and I also love South park and I was thinking of making him something related so I'd be glad for any tip for the pattern (haven't done any amigurumi yet).
Amazing first job!

BethieB, I love your toy! I have a scroll saw on my wish list for a long time but it never comes to realisation since we have no place to put it to. Nevertheless I hope one day I'll be able to try some woodworking as well - I tried some with a big saw and I liked it - I just hate sanding - all the rest is ok:)

Edel, have you got my PMs (the thank you and the one with link to pics of pomander I made from the spices you gave me)? No need to answer I'm just affraid you didn't get it.

I'll get back to crafting soon - I'm just too tired from all the christmas crafting and the crazyness at my work lately... I'll get myself together for sure:) And post the missing two boards that are already done for exactly 1 year! Grin

I posted another toy? - sit sack - here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368597.0

I finished 23 boards (out of 40) but I have to post 2 of them (general sewing project and needlework). How are your statistics?

I have to make different animals from thick felt ant put Velcro on them so he'll be able to play as planed. Until than it'll be just sit sack - but I guess that's OK since his mom wanted to buy one (luckily she didn't). I'll post the animals (pumas mostly - he loves pumas!) when I get the thick felt so I can make them (couldn't get it before - I live in a small country...)
PS: thank you on compliment on my kids - they are prefect to me, of course, but my opinion is heavily biased as I am their mom Grin.
28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sit sack on: January 01, 2011 07:05:45 AM
I made this sit sack for my nephew's bd. Here it's modeled by my younger dd (my favourite "male" took pics with the kids while I was busy making the cake so it's not position as it should be (it has the back part as well but they kind of squished it Wink)

 It's made from a dark blue very sturdy canvas, filled with EVERYTHING I had on hand (I ran out of Styrofoam filling, used the cut foam, fabric scraps, drier's lint,...)

The green bushes are made from fleece and have Velcro sewn on it (the dark blue lines) so that the kids will be able to attack different animals I'll make from felt to it and reposition them as they will please. I'll put pics if we visit them and photo it in action:

I hope you like it! All comments very wellcome!

30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Quilted, Embroidered wristlet & Lunch Money Pouches on: January 01, 2011 05:51:16 AM
Ahaaaa! Now I get it - thank you! The key info that I was missing was that you have a seperate piece of fabric for the backing. When I sew pouches I usually just use one piece that I fold on the bottom edge. Now it makes all the sence, thank you so much!
I have Bernina Aurora 440 QE but I don't have the embroidery unit. I chose this model because I wanted to have the option of adding an embroidery unit later (it's cheaper and takes less space if it's just one machine that does both...) So now I'm still in my "learning" fase and in a few years I hope I'll be able to try something out practically Smiley.

Tank you so much - I have never heard of something like that and I really like it! The only think that bothers me is that this way you probably use more fabric than in a normal "handmade" way (due to the fact that it has to be in the hoop).
