Prompt: Red Alert- Happy Birthday Nerd Games
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: WIP It
Project Name: Birthday Cards
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: Back when Stampin Up first came out with their Paper Pumpkin monthly box, I signed right up. And then life got in the way and the boxes started piling up. So, in honor of the Nerd Games Anniversary, I dug through the stack and decided to make the first birthday-themed card I came across! There are still more cards in the set (Thank You and Hello), but, after punching out all of the confetti stars for the first 3, I decided to wait on those for now. A bit too fussy for me to make 9 in a row Smiley

I also received from Inselaeffchen! Two more fantastic science patches for my collection!

First, a very neatly stitched DNA strand. The chain stitching gives it so much texture!



Then, a quote by Stephen Hawking. I really like the variegated floss and the very appropriate star print background fabric!



Thanks so much, Inselaeffchen! And, thanks for organizing!

My package from IsakkahJai arrived today! And, it's just fantastic!

First, she made me a very cool moon phase necklace (I teach 6th grade science). And, it's doubly cool because I once read that my first name refers to the Greek Goddess of the Moon... which I'm not sure if she knew, or she just made it because science rules!!



She also sent along this black and white fuzzy keychain with a clip... It looks like the models I use to teach the moon phases (although it's much fuzzier Smiley ).



And finally, she made an amazing bag out of TM patches! She represented my zodiac sign of Virgo by embroidering the name on one side, and painting the constellation on the other side. Then, in the Chinese zodiac, I was born in the year of the sheep (or ram), and she made the cutest little button sheep (he says, "Meh!" and you totally have to say it like a sheep would Cheesy ). And, she also embroidered the Chinese character for the sheep (or ram).






I absolutely love everything! Thanks so much, Jessica!

kittykill, I really like the mixed media aspect of your shrine! And, the dotees are so cute (and make me want to make a few).

Bugaboo1, I am highly jealous of your awesome embroidered goods, never mind all of the extras! The ram hoop is just spectacular, and the hankie is just adorable.

gala_apples, your TM patches are gorgeous! I can't choose a favorite.I really love the blend of colors in the Aquarius patch.

dffabric, I really like the bold, graphic nature of your t-shirt. I like how it's instantly recognizble, but doesn't scream "Horoscope!" And lip balm... I used to carry it with me everywhere, but I have since weaned myself from it. But, if I got some lovely homemade stuff, I might just pick up the habit again Grin


And, IsakkahJai received but hasn't been able to post a picture, so here's the one I took before I sent.



She requested something that represented Chinese Zodiac signs of the 4 members of her family (Tiger, Ox, Boar, Rat), but wasn't fussy about the medium. So, I made her a piece of "wall art" with pictures of each sign, and then I used the characters to create some fabric for the Mojo bag (it's a small zippered pouch with a frame around the opening so that it stays open when it's unzipped). I created the design using my Silhouette and then cut it out in HTV. I originally had many more copies of the symbols, but realized that it would take hours to weed, so I enlarged them. I was able to get them pretty centered on the fabric, too!

Prompt:  April: Team Textbook
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Chinese Astrology Mojo Bag
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made this for my partner in the Astrology Swap. She asked for something to represent the four Chinese astrology signs for her family members. I used the character for each sign (Rat, Tiger, Ox, Boar) and designed the fabric panels for the outside of the bag. I had to do some math to figure out how big to make them so that they would be centered on the panels, and not get too chopped (if at all) by the seam allowances.

Project Name: Interactive Life Cycle of a Frog TM Patch
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454860.0
Brief Description: I made this interactive life cycle of a frog TM patch for Inselaeffchen in the latest round of the TM Patch Swap. She wanted a patch to teach her girls science, so I hit upon the idea to do the frog life cycle, and then decided to make it interactive. I had to figure out how to attach the snaps to the individual pieces and the patch so that they'd be secure enough (I used 2 layers of interfaced fabric on the underside of the snap).

Prompt:  March: Cross Stitch vs Embroidery (Embroidery)
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Mini Halloween TM Patches
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: In the latest round of the TM Patch Swap, my partner (Inselaeffchen) and I decided to swap two mini patches (which could be used to fill in gaps when patches are joined). One of her themes was Halloween, and I was able to find some Halloween-themed fabric at the fabric store. I used the fabric to guide my embroidery. For the "Boo!" patch, I stitched around each letter and, since the letters had tiny white dots, I filled them in with black French knots. For the second patch, I stitched the indentations on the pumpkin, the stem, around the cut outs for the face, and around the entire Jack O' Lantern. These were a lot of fun to make!

6  Interactive Life Cycle of a Frog TM Patch in Needlework: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: May 01, 2018 03:35:38 PM
In the latest TM Patch Swap, my partner, Inselaeffchen, said she'd like a patch to help her girls learn science. I know that frog (and butterfly) life cycles are something that elementary kids learn about in the US, and since I love frogs, I figured that I'd make the frog version. And, so that her girls could practice putting the stages in the proper order, I made it interactive! I attached each piece to the patch with a snap, so they could be removed and played with.



I had found this really cool frog life cycle fabric on Etsy (it was printed by Spoonflower), and it was absolutely perfect!



I have a non-interactive version in the works for myself Smiley

Prompt: April Battle- Team Award
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Pair of Pyramid Pouches
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: Growing up, we played a version of rummy that used a board, and we used to put pennies down in each section. If you played the cards in the section, you won any money in the section. Years ago, my aunt and uncle made a very nice table-sized version of the board, and my mom inherited it. Now, when I visit her in FL, we usually play, only now we bet with dimes. Two Christmases ago, I made 2 pyramid bags for my mom and aunt to keep their money in, but I never made one for myself. This Christmas, someone else needed a bag, so my mom handed over her Bendy Bag (made a year ago), but then wished she hadnt. So, when I went back in April, I made a pyramid bag for her to swap for her Bendy Bag, and one for me.

This fits the prompt because Team Textbook started out as Team Science & Math, and I had to do some math for this. The tutorial I found made a much smaller bag than I wanted, so I did the math to make it fit the zipper I had. They came out bigger than the last ones I made, which is good... because the intended recipient declared that he needed a big bag to hold all of his winnings Cheesy  It also fits in with Team Textbook (the math-y part) because its a geometric shape!

Prompt: Mini Challenge-Stephen Hawking
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Orion and Scorpion constellations
Project Link: n/a
Brief DescriptioN: Orion is one of my favorite constellations because it's the first one I learned to identify (at about 2 am, after picking my sister and her {then} boyfriend up at the train station in New Haven, CT. He was an astronomy buff and when we pulled over to swap drivers, they sky was crystal clear, and he pointed out Orion. The Scorpion is my second favorite, because I first saw it in its entirety in the Sonoran Desert, after learning that the wall I had been leaning on a bit earlier was a favorite resting place for scorpions. And, I learned that Orion and the Scorpion don't appear in the sky at the same time- they are enemies, according to myth.

Project Name: dream Spring Canning
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I am fake joining the STS Spring Market twinkle. Whenever I post a picture of what I have canned, a whole bunch of people make claims on the finished goods. I almost never ask for money, but people usually repay me in some way. This brainbowh was Pia Colada Jam, Cranberry Ginger Syrup, and Spicy Mango Salsa. All of the salsa is already claimed! I only take home half of what is pictured.

Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Git 'Er Done Jars
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454624.0
Brief Description: I made a set of tags to label the jars I plan to use for my "productivity sessions," more affectionately known as my "Git 'Er Done" sessions. I tend to let things pile up, and then find it overwhelming to start tackling all of the stuff I need to do. Hopefully, coupled with a productivity timer, I can start to make a dent in the mess that is my house Smiley If I had counted the time it took for me to make the task list, this wouldn't have been a zap Cheesy And, since making the task jars was my first task, I have one slip in the "Done" jar already Grin
