31  A Finished Round Robin in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: June 19, 2007 04:52:33 PM
Last year I participated in a cross stitch round robin featuring the designer Mirabilia.  I designed the layout, but the stitchers got to pick out their favorite designs. It's finally finished so I thought I'd share.  (It's much sparklier in person)

32  sock elephant in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: December 31, 2006 07:22:26 AM
Here is a sock elephant I finished minutes before we left for our last(ugh, finally!) holiday party yesterday.  I had been putting it off because I couldn't figure out how to stitch the eyes. This is my first non-monkey sock creature. 

We ended up leaving before the little boy opened the present, so I'm not sure if he liked it. I'm not even sure if "I" like it.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could have attached the front legs so they didn't end up looking so wonky?

34  tiny quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: December 07, 2006 02:18:20 PM

This quilt was made for a baby sock monkey.  you can see the monkey here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137989.0

It was also a test run with 1.5 in squares before I delve into a full size quilt.  I think for a full size quilt I will use tape to get a straighter stitch, maybe even do it by hand.  I haven't decided that much yet.

This is the 2nd item I've quilted.  Even though it's tiny I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.  Esp matching the seams with such small blocks.

This is my first felt object.  This pincushion is going to be a xmas present for my uncle who bought a sewing machine not too long ago.  He's an avid gardener hence the flowery-ness.

37  yet another sock monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: November 16, 2006 01:38:38 PM
Here is my first sock monkey I made for my daughter.  When I bought the socks I didn't realize they were knee highs or so stretchy.  They ended up a bit lumpier than I would have liked. I cut the arms and tail wrong so she has a stumpy tail and reeeeeally long arms. All the better for hugging, right?!

38  rug troubles in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Mrsblocko on: November 06, 2006 02:22:05 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question.  I am making a rug where you wrap fabric strips around a rope.  I've been teaching myself as I go.  The rug is about 2 ft in diameter as seen here.

everything seemed to be going fine, until I tried to get it to lay flat. here is a pic of me trying to get it to lay flat. 

no matter how hard I try, I've got this huge scallop in at least one place. Does anyone know what I've done wrong?  I think maybe I've over compensated for the arc of the circle.  I've noticed that the wrap is getting tigher and tighter as I go. Other than removing days worth of work or starting over, does anyone know what I could do to correct the mistake?

39  Halloween cookies in Halloween Decor and Parties by Mrsblocko on: October 28, 2006 08:59:30 AM
I made these for my husband to take to work for a halloween potluck. 

I'm happy with these ghosts on a broom, but the witches brooms didn't turn out quite how i wanted them to.

I used pre-made pb cookie dough for the bristles.  I think they spread out too much.

The bristles here are fruit roll ups

This is my first attempt at making "fussy" treats like this.  I thought I would get frustrated, but they were actually really fun to make.

40  my 1st quilt: raggy edge in Quilting: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: October 25, 2006 10:58:44 AM
 After many trips through the dryer to get the edges ragged...

back: made from my daughter's old flannel receiving blankets.

I learned a lot from the whole process.  I made more than one mistake along the way, but over all I am proud of the end result.
