21  Tilted Squares Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by hokiekate on: January 23, 2007 03:40:44 PM
This was a custom made baby quilt.  I'm especially proud of the quilting design.  I love the way the curves complement the sharp angles of the piecing.

22  Quilt Challenge #1: Yo-Yo Flower Wall Hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by hokiekate on: January 19, 2007 04:20:36 PM
I made this wall hanging to go in a friend's guest bathroom.  It is 10" by 12".  The piecing and quilting are done by machine, while the appliqu, embroidery, and yo-yos are done by hand.  If you wish, you can read more about the process of making this quilt here.

I went to the post office today and, boy, did I hit the jackpot!

First up is a package from millik.  Check out this fabulous scarf that she sent me!!  It's so warm and comfy, and I love the colors.

She also stuck this Japanese fortune telling fish in the package.  It's head and tail moved, which is supposed to mean that I am in love.  And while I am in love with my husband, I think that at that exact moment I was in love with the scarf Wink.

I also had a great package from yellowblanket filled with knit goodies:

It's a scarf and two calorimetries (she had to tell me what they were in the note.  I'm a science geek and immediately thought of calorimeters.  I can actually make one of those.  Sad, I know).  I love the waves in the knitting and calorimetries are great for going out in the cold.  I'm going to wear one this afternoon when I go one a walk with my dog and my little boy.  I can't wait!

I received a lovely crocheted (I think) scarf from Vampirebunny.  Behold:

25  My First Messenger Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hokiekate on: January 03, 2007 04:24:57 PM

I made this messenger bag for my sister-in-law. She is currently starting her second year of volunteer service at Nazareth Farm - a Catholic community that provides home repair in rural West Virginia to those who need it and can't afford it (I am really oversimplifying their mission. Click on the link if you want to read more). I figured that she could use a sturdy bag for work and decided to jazz it up with the Farm's logo.

The logo was made with freezer paper and fabric paint.  I made up the pattern for the bag as I went along and it came out pretty well, although it was a little funky around the flap.  I didn't go crazy with the pockets.  Too many pockets means too many opportunities to mess it up Wink.

I hope you like it!

26  Coordinating Baby Jumpers in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by hokiekate on: December 27, 2006 06:47:31 PM
I made the jumper on the left for my 16-month-old goddaughter. The jumper on the right if for her brand new baby sister. This was my first real foray into making clothes. I decided to use Simplicity patterns (4383 and 9911) in the hope that they were actually simple.  Turns out they were. Wheee!

After finally finishing all of my Christmas presents to other people, I decided to treat myself and make something just for me!

28  New Baby Wall Hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by hokiekate on: December 12, 2006 05:45:29 PM
Hello all - just thought I'd share some pictures of a wall hanging I made for a new baby friend of mine Wink.  The applique and embroidery are done by hand and the piecing and quilting are done by machine.  I briefly thought about quilting it by hand, since I already put so much hand work into it, but gave that up in favor of actually finishing the project in a timely manner.

29  My First Stencil! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by hokiekate on: December 12, 2006 05:32:34 PM
This is my first attempt at stenciling.  I received a kit in a swap from shewilldieyoung and got some advice on the design from fellow craftsters in the discussion forum.

It's for my husband for Christmas.  It's an orc peon from the game, Warcraft.

I had a hard enough time making a curvy orc, I don't know if I could make him jagged.

The eye is a great idea, though.  I'm definitely adding an eye.  Thanks a lot for the suggestion!
