1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Joy table runner and throw pillow on: December 19, 2009 10:29:04 AM
Last night my mom, while wrapping presents for me (bless her), asked me to make a holiday-themed runner for a hideous coffee table. I plundered my stash to make the runner and a couple of matching throw pillows. Tops are cotton. Backings are fleece.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Aaargh! Pirate birthday party for my 5-year-old son on: October 07, 2009 06:25:18 PM
I recently hosted a pirate-themed birthday party for my 5-year-old son. Some of the items were store bought and/or given funny names (e.g., corn dogs became "scurvy dogs"), but others were crafted. A few of my faves:

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The Tartan of Nova Scotia Fleece Throw on: August 30, 2009 07:08:07 PM

I made a fleece throw using the Nova Scotia tartan on the top and a coordinating green on the bottom. It was a birthday gift for my mother-in-law who hails from the province.

It was a huge hit! I owe my amazing colleague and good friend Janet big time for her enthusiastic willingness to drive me out to a fabric store during my recent visit to Calgary!

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cat Nap/Play Pillow on: June 07, 2009 03:27:24 PM
 . . . And this is the cat nap/play pillow my younger son requested! I'm proud of the "collar" made of cat fabric!

This was inspired by a bag I saw in a book on sewing animal-themed items for kids.

Here is the snake my six-year-old begged me to make for him this weekend. It was all free hand, but still pretty simple.

The top is a red pattern, the bottom is solid red. Tongue is red, and the eyes are old black buttons.


P.S. If someone could give me advice on how to include the photo in my post, I'd be mighty grateful! I've hit the threshold, but am a bit slow on the technical stuff.


6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Summer Fun on: May 17, 2009 05:05:11 PM
My husband asked me to make a new fabric sling for the so-called Snoopy chair. After a couple of attempts, I finally got it right! I was able to make hammock and other outdoor pillows with my mistakes and extras. For the record, I didn't make the cover for the solid chair, just the stripey stuff!

I'm still pretty new to sewing (just over a year), so this is a monumental feat for me!


7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Quilt (and First Post)! on: March 30, 2009 04:49:28 PM
I finally finished it!!!! It is a Spiderman quilt kit from a mass-merchandise craft store. It's not perfect, but I'm still proud of it. Plus, my six-year-old loves it!

P.S. I think this is the link to my photo:
