111  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Difference Makers Silent Auction March 31, 2017 on: April 25, 2017 08:14:09 PM
I am impressed but not surprised Smiley.
Ditto! Nice going, Lana!

Will start on some more crafts for DM as soon as I finish the Geezer projects for Annchen, the HP quilt block for CLM, and the 75 bookmarks for the children's hospital (just need to satin stitch the edges). And come up with some craft projects for an unspecified number of people to make during OHCE Week (Home Extension). Then there are all those pesky WIPs to deal with (child-size crocheted afghan, crib sheets for darling g-daughter, doll clothes for 7 great-great-nieces, and a few dozen quilts, to name a few). I'm definitely an ADD crafter - great at starting things, but easily distracted by new projects.  Grin

Will there be an auction again next year?

Gorgeous beading, Onyxnox, and so clever to make the pieces interchangeable!

Anna, I'm still puttering away at my projects for Annchen, so I'm glad to know I'm not the only late geezer. Since I started babysitting my baby granddaughter, my crafting time has dwindled to almost nothing.

In college I had a dorm room to myself, so I tended to be a minimalist then. As a teacher, people often commented about how organized my room was. At home it's an entirely different story. I live with my dh, adult daughter #1, her fiancee, and their 6 indoor cats. Teaching resources still clog my den and part of the garage even though I've given a lot away. Books are everywhere and my craft tools and supplies overflow my craft room. Then there's dd & fiancee's stuff and dh's hunting and fishing gear. There's just way too much stuff here. It drives me crazy!

Didn't finish in time to ship on Saturday and am still working on my projects. Won't go into details except to say this has been one of the roughest starts to a year that I can remember. UTM and Annchen, I'll drop you pms when I have a better idea when I'll be shipping.

I totally love that tote. Don't bring it to any Craftster meet ups, kbrison...it might go "missing." Wink

Guess it's lucky then that I won't be able to make it to any meet ups this year! Remind me NOT to give you any details about the Arlington, Texas meet up in 2018. Grin

I received a most wonderous package from Kittykill last week but haven't been able to post photos until now. My computer has been very uncooperative about letting me post photos. One day I can; then I can't for the whole next week. Aargh! First up are two sleds for my miniature Santa's Workshop. KK let me choose which designs I wanted, so naturally I went with Santa and Mrs. Claus. After all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, they like to relax by having some fun in the snow. If you could see these in person you'd realize that Kittykill almost needed a magnifying glass to stitch the designs.

Then she made a tote bag for all my craft projects. I crochet a lot and generally have multiple projects going at any one time, so there's no such thing as too many bags! Then she embellished the bag with one of her great embroideries! Birds and flowers always make me think of my mother. Mom was a great gardener and always had a ton of flowers growing in our yard. She was also my 4-H advisor for the bird watching club, so I come by my admiration for our feathered friends honestly. Note that Red Riding Hood has hitched a ride on the bag. She's a felt brooch that I had pinned on my pinterest boards. Love the surprise!

I also admit to being snarky sometimes when my cynical side pops out. Yeah, right! is one of the more common things you might hear me say, so Kittykill added that for me. Notice the bird's snarky smile. Love it! You've been a wonderful partner, Kittykill! Thanks so very much!

I tried out two new dessert recipes for a church dinner. Very fast and easy to make.
Philly 3-Step Lucious Lemon pie

Philly 3-Step Toffee Crunch Cheesecake & one of the green, leprechaun's hats I crafted.

I think this winter has been the most challenging craft period I've dealt with in a long time. Every time I think I'll have a free block of time, something changes. A friend and I were set to teach a cardmaking class this coming Tuesday at a district home extension meeting that's two hours from here. Then she got a phone call. Someone else had to back out of presenting, so now we've been asked to teach another papercrafting class. It can't be just another session of the same project. No, that would be too, too easy. Instead of working on this swap on Monday I'll be doing the final prep for the new class project. Then I'll be out-of-town at the meeting all day Tuesday. I'm so-o-o-o glad that the mail out date is April 1st!

Gala, if you decide to clear out your tulle, you might consider donating it to a high school. I've seen it used a lot to create decor for dances or weddings. It also can be cut into long strips, then crocheted into facial scrubbies.
