1  Re: 50 Projects 2018-Reach for Your Crafting and Creative Goals! in Craftalongs by TheMistressT on: Today at 02:39:43 PM
Tendstowardschaos: That quilt will be treasured! So pretty! All your other projects, as usual, as so well executed. I think I will use your pin hoops as inspiration when I get around to making a display for pins and patches!

Wryly: What a cool way to fancify that team hat!

I'm still grinding away at home improvement projects, but am squeezing in some crafting here and there. I have some almost-complete project from playing with my Cricut, that will hopefully be done in the next week or two (waiting on supplies for a few) and I have been putting in some time in the evenings on this cross stitch. Of course, it's potty themed, because... ME. Wink

I'm starting another here pretty quick!

2  No. 1 Filtration Cross Stitch - Pun-y Potty Humor in Needlework: Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: Today at 10:37:13 AM
Annnnnnd, I just couldn't stop cross stitching potty jokes!

This is the first of three new patterns, this time with a more anatomical vibe.

I bought the patterns on Etsy. This was stitched on 14 count Aida, because that's what I had, but the patterns are written for 18 count which I will probably switch to using as they are larger images.

3  My First Cricut Project! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 08, 2018 03:08:32 PM
A friend who has done some really cool paper projects with her Cricut came to visit and helped me get over my fear of using mine.  Undecided I started kind of simple with this pop-up card.

I used only stash materials. The "flag" piece is something I cut using a friend's Skizzix a few years ago. The heart was cut by my visiting friend and in her stash. Not sure what tool she used for that.

It was fun to have such a perfect use for some two-sided cardstock paper! I cut and folded an envelope to go with it, but am waiting to get some good paper glue before I finish it. I used two-sided tape adhesive on the card.

SVG files were purchased here.

4  I Made Yellow Squares! Turmeric-stain Disguising Napkins in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 08, 2018 02:55:05 PM

The title pretty much tells the story. The ManFlesh has been cooking a few recipes with turmeric lately and man, that stuff STAINS. So I decided we needed turmeric-meal-specific napkins.

I made only four since we're unlikely to ever need more than that at one meal, but did go to the effort of mitering corners in my favorite napkin finish. I had intended to make them out of 100% linen, but a linen blend is what I could get on one trip to one store with my 2-day 60%-off coupon.  Roll Eyes

TTC: that yarn is super cool! I hope to see it in some projects around here. Wink

UTM: what a nice project for today!

I decided to perk myself up by making this little house box for some hopeful Independence Day vibe around the house. The paper mache box was an extra in my first ever craftster swap back in 2008! I have been hoarding it until just the right idea came along. The house still needs some details, but I'm calling it done-for-now.

I made this little house using mostly stash! Two of the papers and two of the ribbons are new, but all the other stuff was stash, including the paper mache house box which was an extra I received in my very first ever craftster swap way back in 2008.

7  Indie Day Little House in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: July 03, 2018 08:37:59 PM
Despite not feeling especially cheery these days, I decided to add some Independence Day cheer around the house with this little house.

There are a few details left to do, but I don't have what I need/want to do them. Maybe next week. Or next year.

While I did stock up on some red/white/blue materials, I used a lot of stash for this. The new are the gingham and star papers and the stars/stripes ribbons on the gables.


The ruffly trim at the base of the top has been in the trim stash as long as I can remember. Like, it was in the trim stash since I was a little girl! I don't remember what it had been used for by my mom, but I grabbed it at some point.

While digging through my crap stash, I found a baggie of dog tags I picked up at a garage sale with this red fire hydrant. I was going to use the back side, but then I noticed that the last four digits of the phone number are 1776, but backwards. So it seemed like fun little semi-secret detail to keep. Plus there is something so cute of a pup named "Dudley" having his own hydrant.

The paper mache house was an extra in the very first craftster swap I ever participated in! I LOVE little houses and I've been hoarding this waiting for inspiration ever since.

8  Happy Independence Dog! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: July 03, 2018 10:15:39 AM

I couldn't resist making Delia an Independence Day Collar Cozy for this year's July 4th. The reverse side is some galaxy print that I had in stash.

She's pretty distracted by the local squirrel and chipmunk activity these days, so hopefully she'll forget about that mystery poop that's out there somewhere.  Huh  She just randomly rolls in it, focusing on her neck area. Bless her gross little dog heart.  Tongue

UPDATE: New action shot taken today during Second Fetch.

Hoo boy. I haven't had much straight-up crafting time these last couple-few weeks, because I'm more focused on handywoman projects around the house. However, I did get an hour or two most nights to plug away at this silly cross stitch.

Both the red and the white floss came from stash. SO MUCH WHITE FLOSS! Srsly. Oof.

I have also been doing some sorting around the house for a group garage sale with some neighbors as part of a large local event: the 50-mile Garage Sale. Not much in the way of craft materials went into the sale, but I did get rid of some larger stuff we had around and didn't use including a desk, two 6-gallon carboys, a portable fireplace. I am also hoping to sell my aluminum scaffolding from back in my decorative painting contractor days! Tomorrow is the last day of the sale, so wish me luck with that!

10  I Just Keep Rollin' Along with the Toilet-themed Cross Stitches in Needlework: Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: June 29, 2018 06:18:15 PM

I haven't had much time for straight-up crafting lately, but I have had an hour or two most nights to plug away on all these tiny white Xes. All that white and the red embroidery floss was from stash. I purchased the pattern on etsy, it is stitched on 16-count aida.

I mistakenly cut the aida too small, so this one is going to be harder to just grab a frame-from-stash for like I did for the others. I have a few ideas, hopefully I'll get to them soon.

First toilet-themed cross stitch
No. 2 toilet-themed cross stitch.
