11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month Craftalong on: January 20, 2012 06:51:29 AM
Craftsy has a free block of the month video class series going on.  I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing a craftalong.  The photo above is the fat quarter bundle that they are recommending, I'm going to buy a different bundle or make my own, I should be using my stash, but I don't have 36 fabrics I like together.

I'm hoping to make the January blocks soon, I'm waiting till I decide for sure what I want to do about the fabric.

12  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Suggestions on where to buy fat quarter bundle on: January 19, 2012 10:24:07 AM
I was really surprised to see that there wasn't a thread in here for shopping recommendations (at least not that I could find).

Right now I'm looking to buy a fat quarter bundle (30-36) and was wondering if anyone had any sites they could recommend.  I've done some google searches and there are tons of sites that sell them, but it is always nice to have the word of someone who has used a site before.
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Basting Spray Disaster on: January 12, 2012 07:16:54 PM
I just finished my first quilt.  I read about the basting spray online before hand and it sounded great.  Turns out that it was.  It held everything together and quilting went pretty well.  My first quilt looked great. 

I just washed the quilt to get the spray out, and the quilt came out looking aweful.  The fabric is stuck to the batting and is all puckery and nasty looking instead of being puffy and quilt looking.  I went to the manufacturer website for the spray (June Taylor) and it says not to use on poly batting (oh crap), it doesn't say that anywhere on the can, so I didn't know ahead of time.

Has anyone else ever done this or know how to fix it.  I hate the thought that I could have ruined my first quilt.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first knit project - a hat on: December 02, 2011 04:53:40 PM
So I just learned how to knit.  I took a class at my local yarn shop.  Tuesday was my last of 3 classes, so I started my first project, this hat.  I just finished and I am so proud!!!  I love the yarn too, it is a really soft wool.

15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My Brooch Bouquet on: November 21, 2011 11:17:41 AM
I made this for my September wedding.  I wanted something different.   My friends and family helped contribute pieces to it.  It was really nice to have something that had little pieces of all the people I loved in it.

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cell Phone Corsets on: April 02, 2011 12:43:20 PM
I made these cell phone corsets for a partner in a swap.
I used this tutorial http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=475 (except for the embroidery)

The polka dot one was a test piece, done out of scrap I had lying around.

This was the "real" one made from a nice satiny material.  Since they both turned out I sent both.
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rock, Paper Scissors, Lizzard, Spock Bracelet on: April 02, 2011 12:36:00 PM
I made this for a swap partner, the extra link was so she could make it larger if needed.
I used dimensional glue to cover teh images, but if I do it again I will use resin.

18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Resin Lace Bangle on: March 30, 2011 04:18:31 PM
I ordered a bangle mold it should be here tomorow.  I'm wanting to make a bangle with lace in it, but I can't quite think of how to get the lace in there.  It seems like if you put the lace in the mold first the resin would push it down or move it around, but if you pour the resin first then add the lace I'm thinking it would create lots of bubbles.

Here is a link to what I am trying to do.

 I can't find an online tutorial for it anywhere, so any tips or ideas you all can give me would be great!
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Keyka Lou Lots of Pockets on: March 11, 2011 05:31:02 PM
Just finished the lots of pockets bag (Keyka Lou Pattern)

I love it.  I used interfacing on every piece to stiffen it up, since fabric purses I have made in the past tend to be too flimsy.  I acidently sewed a twist into one of the handles, but only I will ever notice I'm sure.  If I make another I will probably widen the top opening a little.
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help figuring out a stitch. on: February 07, 2010 05:14:51 PM
I am trying to make this sweater


I can't seem to figure out the stitch they are calling the slanted puff stitch.  I can't find instructions for the stitch online either.  Whenever I try to follow the instructions I seem to be loosing a stitch each row.  If anyone could better explain teh stitch to me I would really appreciate it.  I typically stick to single, double, and triple crochet and don't venture into this 'fancy' stuff!
