That's pretty cool Jennie. I, too, have never seen anything like it before.

Did you tell Red Heart their pattern was messed up?

That's sad. My daughter's first pet was a hamster. Over the years we've had three or four of them. I love hamsters. That was obviously a hamster given to a child where the adult couldn't see it as anything more than a rodent. Sad face. Even my mother ended up loving our hamster. Spoil the thing rotten and stuck fresh veggies in her cage every single day.

I'm happy you found her and loved her. I'm sad for your loss.

The ornament is adorable.

I have received and they are FABULOUS!!!

I'm always envious of those of you who are quick crafters. I am the opposite. I am slow. Deliberate. Meditative. Turtle like even. For this patch bywilma chose my "Craft Turtle" theme. I think she nailed it.



And then she chose my "Queen of the Dorks" theme...with some added Bob's Burgers love! (Which I asked for!) It's perfect!



Thank you so much for swapping with me bywilma!

teag - Thanks for checking in. Glad you and your family are okay....albeit it sucks to be without power. Hopefully it comes back on soon!

Annchen - No worries. I vaguely remember a send date...but with the hurricane issue, send outs will be done after Mother Nature settles down.

JC - I sent today. Will send you a msg in a minute.

Let us see the many ways I have used my embroidery!

Wrapped around a canvas and stapled.
Sewn to a canvas bag.
Made a clock for Mistress Jennie in a hoop.
Patches,
pillow,
mug rug,
ornaments (not just for holidays!),
prayer flag,
coasters,
cup coozie,
I made a crown once,
ATC cards,
framed in a picture frame,
pouches,
bags,
purses,
tiny hoops for necklaces or the new Nunn findings specifically made to be used for embroidery (I just bought a bunch, expect to see them in my work eventually),
brooches,
earrings (seen but not made myself),
bracelet,
buttons (seen but not made myself),
bookmark...

Essentially, if you can think it, you can embroider it!  Grin

Don't ever be limited to what is normally done. Break the box!

Hi all!

I follow the Social Justice Sewing Academy @sjsacademy on IG and wanted to share with you guys so you can see the awesome work they are doing. Also, they sometimes put calls out for volunteering. You can do some of it long distance (I'm embroidering some appliqued quilt squares now). They actually put out a call for embroiderists today. So. If you have time to do some stitching for a good cause, look them up!

Founded in 2016, the Social Justice Sewing Academy is a critical education program that fosters participatory art as a vehicle for personal transformation, community cohesion, and social change.

Just wanted to share a cool program with ya'll.

A "rocks" merit badge would be so excellent!

Right?!?!?!  Grin

Today I spent an undisclosed amount of time brainstorming a design for my partner. I found a trillion wonderful patterns out there. A zillion great ideas. Nothing was gelling. I was confused. Why can't I settle on a design? Why can't I decide?!?!?

It was only after I realized that my embroidery fetish was rearing it's head..."If you can't embroider something, is it really done?!?!"  Roll Eyes WTH?!?!

Luckily, I just found something that sings to me...and should jive with my partner's wants...AND can be a combination of quilting and embroidery! Yay!

You gotta listen to that muse peeps.

What happens when you forget to look at other boards (other than swaps)? You miss stuff!  Roll Eyes Thanks so much for the Feature! And all the rocks! (That should totally be a merit badge.)
