1  curvy quilt top in Quilting: Completed Projects by sqrlgrrl on: September 11, 2005 07:51:31 PM
Had to show off even though it is just a quilt top still. I used the book "Stack A New Deck" and it was great. I finished the top in a short, easy week. I've never (successfully) sewed curves before but since the edges of the curves don't have to match, you can just relax and enjoy the piecing.  It is destined to be a baby quilt for some good friends.

2  first craft fair - pricing suggestions in Get Product and Website Opinions by sqrlgrrl on: July 31, 2005 02:33:09 PM
Hi there -

I'm going to be sharing a booth with my friend who is doing some fabulous knit scarves. I have a variety of magnetic creations - altoid type boxes with theme lids filled with magnets. But I also have some "loose" magnets to sell. Any pricing suggestions?? They are relatively small - the stamps are real stamps, the marble mags are 1/2", the Mexican lottery cards are approx. 1" x 2", and the origami cranes are an inch or so.  

some closeups:

Hee hee...so I just finished the "boyfriend cashmere" scarf - but I did it in a yummy alpaca in a blue/gray (his choice). And I followed the incorrect pattern in the book. The whole time I kept saying "It doesn't look anything like the picture!" But I figured it was just my less-than-perfect knitting skills and it was looking nice anyway. In the end, it was kind of a relief to look up the pattern on the website and realize that it wouldn't look anything like the picture with the pattern I was following! So if anyone is curious about how it would turn out following the book pattern (hope you can see the detail - it is folded in half thus you can see how the back looks too):


It is a bit lighter and lacier than the original, but he likes it and wears it. What more can I ask for?

Here are my goodies from Jerome (it was hard to tear myself away from the book to post...the book is Wicked - the Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West and has been recommended to me by many)

close up of the buttons on the flower accent and bookmark (I love the buttons and leopard print ribbon!):

the fabric is a very fine wale corduroy with a cozy flannel lining - and matches the bookcover perfectly. It is great! Thanks Jerome!!!

I went for the wine bottle tonight. I just soaked off all the labels and then put my friends' names on it for a housewarming gift. I was going to add "home sweet home" to the other side but had to move on to other things. Hard to capture it all with my amateur photographing skills, but you get the idea...

and just for fun...I've made a few of these holiday ornaments with clear glass balls (not super original, just peoples' names still, but they are filled with different kinds of lichens b/c we are all nature geeks)
