1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / John Deere craftalong - seemed to have died closed 8/17/10 on: April 02, 2010 04:33:43 AM
The idea for this craftalong was brought up on the 50 projects thread, so I figured I would start it! Smiley Thank you SharLaMarz for the great idea!

I don't know how much actual interest there is, but I have quite a few John Deere projects that I'm working on, have recently finished, or are planned.

1. John Deere rag quilt (finished)
2. Painting a thrifted toddler bed John Deere colors
3. Banner with my sons name in leftover fabric from the rag quilt. Most likely rag quilt style letters
4. Making JD birthday party invitations
5. JD cupcakes or cup for said birthday party

And you?!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / John Deere Rag Quilt on: March 23, 2010 09:36:02 AM
I made this for my son's 3rd birthday. His birthday isn't until May, but I wanted to make sure I got it done it time  Wink
I have clipped all the seams, but I haven't actually washed it yet, so they don't look very ragged yet.

Laid out on my full size bed

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / What should I put with this fabric? on: March 16, 2010 06:53:49 AM
I am making a quilt for my sisters graduation present. I ordered this fabric:

I got one yard that i black with white skulls and one that is white with black.

I need another yard or so of black fabric with a white design and white fabric with a black design. There is also an accent color, which I'm most likely going to use green or turquoise.

Anyway, I was thinking polka dots or stripes, but am wondering if that would be too much with this pattern? I also thought of doing a few different fat quarters so I could get a good variety of patterns. My mom suggested pairing them with solid black and white blocks.

Input and/or fabric suggestions please.

I'm working on a little sketch of how the blocks are laid out right now so you can see.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rag Quilt for my Grandma on: March 15, 2010 06:23:04 AM
This was my (real) attempt at making a rag quilt. I made a smaller (15"x15") blanket to throw in the carseat with my infant first, but this is a lap size one. It is approximately 34"x34". I've never made a real quilt either, I'm actually very limited in what I have sewn. Tongue

c&c always welcome.

Blocks cut and laid out in pattern:

Sewn together, seams waiting to be clipped:

All done!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / "Dandelion Daydreamers" Longies on: January 02, 2010 10:07:00 PM
I made these for the little boy that hubby and I are expecting this month. It was the first time using this pattern for me. I like how they turned out. I just need to weave in the ends on the cuffs Smiley

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Russian Winter gauge question... on: November 14, 2009 07:45:43 PM
So, the pattern says 10st/4in on larger needles. Do they mean the size 15 needles or the 10.5?

I rarely check gauge, and I started knitting this on 11s instead of 10.5s and I'm getting 12st/4in and now am wondering if this will work out in the end, or if I should start over.

Thanks. Smiley
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / My first attempt at a tree of life pendant... on: October 06, 2009 04:43:09 PM
This was the first one that I've attempted to make. I'm not a huge fan of playing with wire though, so it was a slow start Wink I used a hoop that I had in my stash instead of making my own just to save a little time and used some cheap 26g wire and seed beads. I did this without using any tools other than my hands, I'm sure I could have made the wire wrapping neater if I used pliers, but i think that i actually prefer the "messier" look. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied. (and i've fixed the wire on the bottom of the pendant since taking the picture)

feedback is welcome!
