21  Goooo Wonderpets, YAY!! in Halloween Costumes by katera on: November 05, 2006 04:04:59 PM
OK, those of you who don't have preschoolers are probably not familiar with the Wonderpets, they are a show on Nick Jr about classroom pets that save animals in trouble.  My daughter went as Linny the guinea pig.  I made everything except the hat.

And here's a pic of our model.

She just loves to play Linny and sing the songs from the show, so I hope we will get more use out of this!

here's my not-so-lean green machine.  vintage sears kenmore, i'm sure it will outlive me.  Smiley  my baby easily weighs 50+ lbs.  it says the model # is 5186, i'm guessing it's from sometime in the late 60's, based on how long my mom has had it. 

i've always had problems figuring out the tension on my machine, so if anyone has some advice on that front it would really be appreciated.  i know which one is the the tension knob - it just seems to behave strangely.  maybe it needs a tuneup?

23  Pink/Navy Pinwheels for Baby - first project post! in Quilting: Completed Projects by katera on: October 14, 2006 07:16:29 PM
Ok, this is my first post with pictures, so please feel free to give me craftster/photobucket advice as well as quilt comments!  (please ignore the unmade bed!)  Smiley

This is a quilt I made for a co-workers baby girl about 4 years ago.  I fell in love with the pink/navy plaid flannel and had to use it.  The other fabrics on the top are pink and navy solid flannels, and the backing is pink fleece.  I think (trying to remember, it's been a while) that I just used a light batting because the fabrics were so heavy.

And here's my crafting shame - you can see the horrible job of quilting on the back.  I ended up just quilting around the squares - I was running out of time before the baby shower - I had intended to quilt through the pinwheel design.

This is one of my first quilts, the pinwheels are a little off in places, but I love the colors, plus I wanted to test photobucket and I had these pics already.  So, what do y'all think?  (yes, i'm an okie and you all are "y'all")  Smiley
