I do believe I was spoiled rotten!  I received my package today from jexxican and she did a beautiful job on everything! 

I received three things-  first off are a set of lovely candle holders

7  fat quarter baby quilt... in Quilting: Completed Projects by jellybellygirl on: October 28, 2011 10:26:35 PM
I found this wonderful tutorial online http://neverenoughhours.blogspot.com/2010/08/fat-quarter-baby-quilt-tutorial.html a while ago and had been wanting to make this.  I'm not much of a quilter but I wanted to make a blanket for the new baby that was born into the host family that I stayed with in Mexico this summer. Her name is Yulisa. So i bought some fat quarters and went to work. I did not use batting as it does get rather warm down there.  Also, a member from my church is taking it down in her suitcase and I didn't want to take up too much room in her suitcase..

Now, I have to admit, I ended up putting the blocks together wrong. I was in the middle of the first block and my husband decides he wants to make a run to the local convenience store for a little snack. I went with. Well, when I got back I figured I had it right and just went to town. I just noticed I put them together wrong, but oh well. It's still vibrant and lively.

Is it "too" lively? LOL!  Grin

8  cheap couch cover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by jellybellygirl on: October 10, 2011 01:02:23 PM

IMG_6916 by jbg1977, on Flickr
this is what my couch in the kids living room looked like earlier today. it's looked like this for a while. hideous, yes? the fabric on the cushions was coming off for a while so i just stuck a sheet over it... I didn't want to deal. and of course the kids don't care anyway.. well, their 19 and 20, why would they? lol!

well, i finally cared enough and decided to make a cover. i am no great seamstress by any stretch of the imagination so i decided to go about it the quick and easy way.. a big throw cover! now, given the fact the kids tend to spill and what not, i didn't want to go out and spend a lot of money on fabric so i used my favorite trick lately-sheets. i bought 3 flat twin sheets (walmart-$5/each) and sewed 2 of them together and got this:

IMG_6919 by jbg1977, on Flickr

not so great yet. see the sides still? well, i didn't want to use the entire third sheet, so i cut off two pieces, so i still have most of the sheet to make a cover for a chair, too, but was able to make the cover look better.. at least for me it does.. and like i said, the kids don't care.

not perfect, but much better!  Grin

9  cashmere sweater into a sweater vest! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jellybellygirl on: August 24, 2010 01:54:23 PM
recently, though my husbands cousin, i began purchasing old wool sweaters from the goodwill to felt and turn into something awesome (i.e. blankets mostly lol). i bought this green cashmere sweater and unfortunately it didn't felt down as much as i liked.  my stepdaughter claimed it, though as you can see, the arms are too short(for her)-

she told me after claiming it that she wanted it turned into a sweater vest.  and it worked out rather nice! i cut off the arms and hemmed them.  the first time she tried it on it was too big so i ended up taking in another inch on each side and now it's perfect!

10  the worlds ugliest ring holder, but i like it! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jellybellygirl on: January 05, 2010 01:19:13 PM
this is my first "real" attempt using clay.  yes, it's sculpey.. i had it on hand leftover from some craft projects with summer camp.  i wanted a ring holder for christmas, but i didn't get one. i figured i'd try to make my own.  i have no idea any terms for anything with clay, and i have no tools... but here it is. the ugliest ring holder... EVER! Smiley

be gentle... or in awe of its ugly Wink
