1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: 2019 Annual DeStashAlong! on: December 18, 2019 10:10:02 AM
I've been using my fabric stash recently to make microwave bowl cozies, but ran out of the cotton batting filler. Along came a sale at JoAnn's - 50% off on batting. Yippee! So I bought 2 cotton batts (full bed size) thinking that should last me for quite awhile. Well, it's definitely going to last much longer than I expected. When I looked at the small print on the back of the package last night, it states that this particular batt is NOT to be used on  anything for the microwave! Looks like I just added a fair amount of bulk to my stash. Bummer!

kbrison-"fossils"!  I am over here, spitting coffee on my keyboard!  Grin

See what happens when you're drinking beverages and listening to me at the same time? Poor keyboard! I'll be 69 in March plus my APRN informed me today that I've developed some arthritis in my right knee. I'm pretty sure calcification is a step in the fossilization process. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

Thanate, if I make it to 96, I'll probably still be crocheting also. May not be recognizable but I'll be doing it.  Grin
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Mini 12 Days of Christmas 2019 on: December 12, 2019 06:25:57 PM
Edel, I'm glad you liked the tree skirt. I couldn't find a pattern that didn't chop the fabric up beyond recognition so I free-styled it. I found that same  fringe in a colorway that matched the turquoise background, but once I found the brown I just had to use it instead. It so reminded me of Ron's dress robe that had once been his great-uncle's. Still makes me laugh to think about Ron's chagrin.

Pinokeeo, I'm not very much younger than you. These whippersnappers need us true geezers to show them what aging should be. We're their fine wine and I think we need to stick around now more than ever. Besides it always cracks me up when the 30- and 40-somethings refer to themselves as 'geezers'. If they're geezers, what does that make us, fossils? I do understand that we reach points in our lives when our interests and our passions change. I'm grateful that you've shared so many of your crafting passions with us. May the rest of your life be wonderful!

I started the year with 10 goals and have completed or nearly completed all but 1. I generally prefer small or medium projects so completing a quilt top is still on my list from several years ago. Maybe I'll finally get some borders added this coming year if I'm not swapping. I've finished 11 fabric books but still have about 8 to go and I've only completed 1 of my vintage kits although my goal was 3. Everything else on my list was accomplished, often well beyond my initial goal.

It's really been helpful these past years to track what I'm doing craft-wise and it's encouraged me to complete some projects that have just been cluttering up my craft room. It's so much better to finish something, then put it to use or send it on its way to a new home. I rarely post my projects on the ongoing thread but I've tried to stay current on my list photo postings, so if you're interested, I'm on the top of page 3. Feel free to browse.

And one in Oklahoma or Texas. I'm willing to host that one.

I have 3 craftster-made tree of life pendants but don't think I've ever seen one done as a 3-D decor piece. Great job! Very different look while still fitting the Tree of Life model.

You continue to impress me with your crafty skills. I've loved watching your talent expand through the years and hope that will continue for many more years, even if it's not on Craftster.

Oh my goodness! Where did you find such wonderful prints? Not only did you nail the plackets on the doughnut and states blouses, you're only off by a tiny amount on the buttons shirt. Then you were so precise on the waistband and pleats on the soda can skirt. Very, very professional!
