11  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: Re: Re: Craftster Site Announcement on: December 05, 2019 10:58:26 PM
For those of you who have been asking how you can help, I am organizing a Craftster Garage Sale via eBay, that will feature handmade items from some of your favorite Craftster friends, to raise funds toward building our new home.  I have started gathering and listing items.  Please stay tuned for a link to the sale in the next day or two as I get more items up!
Do you need donations of items?

Please also consider accepting $ donations. Under normal circumstances I'd love to pay for beautifully crafted items made by craftster friends, I'm in Europe and shipping is expensive. I feel that money is better spent setting up Craftster 2.0 right now. I know that will cost $$$.

Another reason I'm sad to live across the Atlantic is I'm a tax law expert and business owner - helping other business owners getting started is what I do. I would have gladly donated my time if I knew anything about the US tax/legal system.

I know people on Craftster have very many skills, not just crafty skills, so if you are looking for someone with a very specific skillset, who knows, they may be on here and willing to help out.
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Little Good Things Round 2 (still happening, changes in the second post) on: December 05, 2019 10:12:16 AM
I just sent in the questionnaire! I was already keeping an eye out to join a swap over the holidays to celebrate finally being done with grad school ... I just wished this wouldn't be the last one.  Cry

I'm so shocked and saddened to read this! I've been on craftster since I was 16 and I'll be 30 on my next birthday. I've been on here literally half of my life. I guess I was part of the problem because I haven't been around for the last 2 years due to grad school conmitments. I'll be done in a couple of weeks and for months have been looking forward to having a long christmas break, finally having time for crafting, reading up on everything I've missed around here. I am serious when I say craftster has been the carrot that has dragged me through grad school.

I want to thank all the mods, all the members and everyone I've ever swapped with for all the great times. I sincerely hope there's anything that can be done to save craftster - if the owners are closing down maybe they are interested in selling too? I would absolutely be willing to make a financial contribution if that's necessary. It would be awesome if the community would be able to crowdfund the takeover of the website. I see you mods are working on an action plan - if there's anything I can do to help please reach out. For now I'll join the Reddit board so there's a way to stay in touch.
14  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2017 QuiltAlong on: March 04, 2018 09:26:13 AM
Nice picture!

How's everyone doing in 2018? Q1 is always busy at work, so I haven't been crafting (or on Craftster, for that matter) since forever. I knit a simple scarf this week and then suddenly remembered I love crafting.

Plans for this year:

- BF has requested a quilt to take with him when he's away. I will probably go for a denim top, I expect it will be washed frequently. I'm thinking of making it a quillow so it's easy to carry around.

- I'm working on a faux cathedral window quilt from used denim. I love to use denim, especially used denim.

- I still haven't decided on that wedding quilt ... or the date  Cheesy

This is a really great, personal gift! I'm sure the entire family loved it on Christmas day.

We bought way too many brussels sprouts some time ago. Fiance put some in the freezer, didn't even trim and blanche them, just put the entire bag of sprouts in the freezer.

Defrosted them today, cut the sprouts into pieces, stir fried them with some garlic, onion and bell pepper. Added some black pepper and curry powder and threw in a can of kidney beans right before serving. I was afraid the sprouts would be snotty after being defrosted, but not at all! I'm not the biggest fan of sprouts (fiance loves them, that's why we eat them) but stir fry is my favourite way to prepare them.

They look amazing! If you are some day planning to actually start a business, these definitely look professional enough to sell.

Maybe the pictures don't show off your designs perfectly, but it does show how well they are suited for their purpose, plus your amazing aerial skills. I completely understand now why you need to have some parts of your body covered.

I love the one with the flames especially. The leotard itself seems like such a simple design, but the flame fabric and the way you incorporate the print into the design completely brings it to life and turns it into something special.

The finished potholders

This is just regular batting. I have always used regular batting and fabrics for potholders and oven mitts and it's never been a problem.

Christmas potholders, made mostly from stash. I am new to FMQ and wanted a simple project. I found this panelled quilting fabric in the 1/meter bin and I decided that would be the perfect project. The backing fabric has been in my stash for a long time, I used up all of my batting scraps. I have finished 3 of them completely now and working on another five. I spray basted them and folded the back over to the front as a binding.

I think I will keep a few of them for myself and then give a set to my friend, mother and grandmother.
