1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Important diagram! on: April 24, 2015 02:48:01 PM
It is so important that we understand our machines. This helpful diagram from Regretsy will clarify the different parts for you.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scar Baby on: January 22, 2015 12:09:08 PM
A friend of mine is having brain surgery this week. They are going up a vein to take care of an aneurism. That means no shaved head and no head scar. She is a bit upset by this. Her thinking is, "If I have to go through all this, I want something to show for it!"
So, to commemorate her ordeal, I made her a scar baby. She has her scar where my friend would, if they operated on her the conventional way.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Pillow Sham Stockings on: December 20, 2014 08:50:45 PM
After Halloween I went to Goodwill, looking for prom dresses and such.
I wanted some satiny material to make Christmas stockings for the family. I figured that would be much cheaper than buying the material.
Well, I didn't find a decent dress, but I did find 2 gold brocade pillow shams. This is what I made.

Before (the stripes are on the back of the sham)


The initials are on 2 inch wood discs, painted gold with copper lettering.
I'm very happy with the way they turned out Smiley

I've sewn for years, but this is a new technique for me.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Iron Giant Wood-burning on: December 05, 2014 05:14:44 PM
My daughter LOVES Dr. Who (me too) so I have started a new tradition with her. Every year she gets a wood-burning of a Tardis in an unusual place. Last year it was with Cinderella on the palace steps. This year it is with the Iron Giant, one of our favorite movies.
This is done on an 11 inch cheese box lid made of basswood.
(this is not my artwork, it is from a t-shirt)

Two woodburnings I did for the latest 4x6 swap -

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / '51 Chevy Truck on: October 28, 2014 11:25:33 PM
I was commissioned to do a 15 inch wood-burning of a '51 Chevy truck.
This is it Smiley
8  COOKING / Dessert / Apple Fritter Bread on: October 19, 2014 04:30:26 PM
I made this today with some apples I had left over from canning.
It is as yummy as it looks.

I found it here:
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Thanksgiving/Fall placemates on: September 06, 2014 11:52:51 AM
Kuckyjune had a great idea (her internet is on the fritz right now ).

What do you guys think about a placemat swap? We were thinking about a group swap, where you have maybe 6 partners, so you get 6 different mats to use at Thanksgiving, or everyday. And if people had more than 6 people coming, they could be used on the table for hot dishes. Plus, you could pick Thanksgiving or fall.

What do you guys think?

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wood-burned Horse on: April 07, 2013 05:51:44 PM
Wood-burned horse, 11x13. My husband says his name is Bubblegum.
The separation of the wood planks is way less noticeable in person. And the dark area on the right side is a knot in the wood.
