1  Figuring out how much to make for a show in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by waggonswest on: January 09, 2016 01:47:48 PM

I hope the link is OK.  I've been pondering the question of how to figure out how much stock I need to make to take to a show beyond the 'as much as you can make' standard.   I've come up with a couple ways to try and estimate maximum number of sales possible to try and put a cap on the amount needed to take.  I've posted it on my blog.

2  Bearooshnikov Brother in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 07, 2016 12:04:35 PM

Finally getting my digitizing mojo back.  This is the test stitch of my latest design, a small bear.  His brothers are going to be bigger and I think that some of them might just insist on wearing a tutu.  There are a few more gents on the way.  I'll post when I get them stitched out.

The Details.  Drawn by me.  Digitized using Stitch Era Design.  Stitched on fleece with fleece applique.  Approximately 5.5 inches tall.  

By the way...I can't get any pictures to load using the craftster photo hosting.  It looks like I have some old photo gummed up in processing.  

Well shoot.  It shows up in preview.  I'll go start a ticket.

3  A Snow Bird's Chance in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: December 01, 2015 09:21:42 PM

This one is my last off-season Project Quilting Challenge project.  The prompt this time was to be inspired by the snowball block.  I found these fabrics in a lovely shop in Florida.  Thus the reference to snowbird.  I don't like snowball blocks.  I didn't want to make them but I found the gorgeous Urban Threads design for the center and was off and running.  It also measures 20 x 20 inches.  It is made of quilter's cotton.  I used an embroidery design snowflake for the quilting.

4  No Name Nine Patch in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: December 01, 2015 09:17:56 PM

This one doesn't have a name.  It is also a response to a Project Quilting prompt.  It measures 20 inches by 20 inches.  Those are half inch squares in the center!  I bought all the fabrics except the cherrywood turquoise at a lovey shop in Huntsville, AL  And I photographed it on the beach in Florida.

Wow.  I am so far behind this year. I've spent some time looking at the pictures of all the amazing things you all have been making.  Really great work.  I am enjoying the food projects which seem to be more prevalent than I remember from past years.  There are some great cooks on here.  Lots of yarnies too!  Knowing how long it takes me to crochet a simple granny square, I am really impressed with the productivity of you yarnies!  Creative work all the way around. 

I've updated my list and am pasting that update here.  I have been working on projects, I just haven't been able to keep up with posting.

February - July

Hayduke's Cabin 

Land of the Midnight Sun

7  Slow and Steady Gets it Done in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: June 20, 2015 09:23:18 AM

This quilt was started as part of Project Quilting Season 6.  It was the last challenge and due sometime in March.  Didn't make it.  But I kept picking it up and doing a bit more.

It is finally done. It has bits of linen to give it some texture and a flannel back to make it cozy.  It is 24 x 36 inches.

9  Hayduke's Cabin in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: June 01, 2015 12:14:21 PM
I finished a thing!

The #PQ off-season challenges are to use a specific set of colors, one per month and create a 20 x 20 inch quilt following using a specific block as inspiration. For May, I choose orange.  The inspiration block was Monkey Wrench. 

Whenever I hear the phrase Monkey Wrench, I immediately think of Edward Abbey's book "The Monkey Wrench Gang".  Haduke is the main character, thus the title of my quilt.

This project is turning out to be a blast.  The inspiration block for June is the Friendship star.  I'm thinking blue for the color selection and thinking true blue... but who knows how that will turn out.  Stay tuned.

10  MONSTERS! in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: May 06, 2015 06:18:43 PM

And another project digitized by me!  MONSTERS.  Most have hearts. Some have little robots.  I'm still deciding if I want to make pockets. 

About 6 inches tall.  Digitized using Stitch ERA Universal.  Made of fleece.
