1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Let Your Light Shine Tea Towel on: February 21, 2019 08:52:38 AM
I really thought this pattern would take one night of stitching but the lettering took much longer. Growing up in the south we would always catch lighting bugs. I miss that so much. We do not have them in the Pacific Northwest. This towel is going to be displayed in my kitchen to remind me to smile every day. The pattern is a new one from Aunt Martha.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Vintage Cottage and Bird Embroidery Hoop on: February 19, 2019 09:43:47 AM
I stitched up this set for crafty-becky in the Hoopla swap. The patterns are from the 1930-1940's.



Close up!




3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fancy a Cuppa Cross Stitch on: February 13, 2019 02:24:56 PM
I finished this piece up last night. I decided to turn it into a serving tray for a tea party.



Close up of the stitching.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Craftster Quickies: Felt Envelopes on: February 04, 2019 09:09:37 AM
When I started thinking about what to do for the latest Craftster Quickie video I thought about ways to show my sweetie how much I love him, but I also wanted something decorative.  Cheesy Let's be honest-I need my house to look festive all the time! I decided to try my hand at Felt Envelopes. I looked around at so many tutorials and they were all so complicated. I don't do complicated.

I used some of the envelopes to create a Valentine's Day advent calendar but I wasn't stopping there! I decided I needed a little message board for the door. I grabbed my felt squares, an embroidery hoop and "got to crafting!"  Cheesy

The materials you will need are:
Felt
Scissors
Fabric
Floss or felt flowers for embellishment
Glue gun
Glue sticks.

Check out the VIDEO and make your own fun Felt Envelopes!

Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the claim should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours (this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.


ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING...
1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.

2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.

3) We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that we know you're still here with us.  Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren't in the swap during the first 2 weeks).

4) Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.

5) Please include craft, supplies and misc items on your list-just in case the swap slows down. The more on the list, the more the swap will keep going.

6) For claims: 1st time swapper 1 claim (until package is in transit with proof). Regular Swapper 2 claims (until package is in transit with proof)Friend of Craftster 3 claims (until package is in transit with proof)

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Vintage Napkins on: January 31, 2019 09:36:43 AM
I decided this year I would use more cloth napkins and less paper. I stitched up this set using a vintage pattern. One corner is a kitty and the other is a glass. My iron is on the fritz and wouldnt get out the hoop ring then decided to spit water onto the napkin. Im not too upset, they will get stained and dirty anyway. Just throw them in the laundry and they will be just fine.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Sunshine/color in a box swap on: January 23, 2019 03:22:41 PM
So much snow and grey skies! I am ready for some sun and color! Anyone up for a round? This swap is always so much fun.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flower of the Month-January on: January 14, 2019 09:42:55 AM
I finished the January flower for the Flower of the Month Stitch Along. The flowers are carnations and snowdrops. I decided to do only two colors for this month. The bright pink with the black and white made me think of snow and celebrations. LOL! Once I am finished I will put them all together in a fabric journal.
