I just had a package received so I can share here now.

To celebrate a love of the podcast My Favorite Murder and true crime in general, I conjured up this little scene in my mind of the poisoner wifey putting out a cuppa for her horrible hubby that needs some offing and brought it to life haha. In case you can't make out the text, the fabric is a remnant of this poison fabric, and the embroidered text says "totally not trying to kill you". I also made the charm dangle that I attached to a tea strainer (thank you Mistress Jennie for the awesome inspiration of her epic strainer dangles).

I also couldn't resist buying the supplies to play around with metal stamping for the first time. It's pretty obvious as my words are horribly not straight, but they have a newbie charm that is growing on me. Also a reminder to always lock your doors!

(picture snagged from Acadian Driftwood, thank you!)

Yay!! Glad you liked everything  Cheesy I took this picture before sending because I had this little scene in my mind of the poisoner wifey putting out a cuppa for her horrible hubby that needs some offing.

I forgot to mention in my note that the charm dangle on the tea strainer is removable so you can wash the strainer in the dishwasher if desired.

sheepBlue sent me an amazing package! So many goodies! Cheesy

A poisonous mug rug, with vintage trim Georgia would appreciate. As a well-placed mug is picked up, the message is revealed.

And a matching tea infuser! With a hand-stamped keychain. We live in an area where many do not lock their doors, and unfortunately I am one of them. Good reminder for me!

An awesome ransom-style card, and fantastic stickers!! Also an emergency multi-tool, with whistle, compass, signal mirror, and waterproof match case. Because I refuse to stay out of the woods. Tongue But hey at least I don't hitchhike!

Thank you for being my partner sB! I loved my package so much, and I hope you'll like yours as well. <3

TTC, it's really cool that you have many versions, so every kid can get something they like. Personally, if I was a kid I'd be brawling to get that cool monsters one on the right side.

So I've had a bunch of components from other craftster members to make TM Patches. I finally got my act together and started making them.

The machine embroidered cats on felt are from thanate, the fruit print is from artsycandice

machine embroidered cups from thanate

pear print from artsycandice

the dragon was a stuffie from artsycandice, I cut it open so I could put it on fabric flatly

the cross stitch camera was a keychain from bec99

the robot was printed from a carved stamp from joyfulclover, the flowers are a vintage fabric of my mom's

a print of nooo's

a lyric from Placebo I stamped out

Ok here is my 3 rd finished quilt since Christmas.  I must say I love my new sewing machine and reorganized craft room.   If you looked at my UT quilt you know I had a garage sale recently.  Well my BF decided to clear out his closet and get rid of a bunch of Harley shirts that his brother had sent to him several years ago from Florida!  His brother had outgrown them and thought that his brother might like to wear some when he was out riding his Harley.  Anyway closet cleaned and I decided to make a t-shirt quilt and send them back to his brother.
We called a few days before the package was to arrive to tell him we had mailed his T-shirts back.  His brothers response was exactly what we thought it would be:  Hell you wasted your money I dont want them.....I will just put the whole box in the trash.  So our planned reply was we had used them to wrap something up that we also sent to his wife make sure and open it and dig around before trashing the shirts!  Needless to say I would have loved to have seen his face when that box was opened.  I think he called 3 or 4 days in a row still in awe!

Since I had so many pockets and sleeves with graphics I decided to do a solid clack backing but use my left overs and add the flame edges then blanket stitched them to the back before sandwiching it altogether for quilting.  I also did designs in the solid area and again quilted around each block.

It was really special as these shirts were from places he had visited. I also added one from Houston Tx. Mancussos harley.

Project Name: Lucky Penny Necklaces
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I think March is the month for luck with all the Luck of the Irish and four leaf clover items I see. I was inspired to make these Lucky Penny necklaces with pennies that would have otherwise been thrown away. I don't really use cash anymore and I can't remember the last time I used a penny. For that reason I am using these as my Hunt for something Recycled. I added crystal charms to three of them for a little pizzazz. They remind me of Scrooge McDucks Lucky Dime.

 I have been sick for a little while and wanted to do a more simple project to ease me back into sewing. My friend Bunny1Kenobi assured me sewing was like riding a bike. That made me think it would make me feel old, fat, and probably hurt more than I remembered.  Roll Eyes  So I decided to make some un-paper towels. They seemed simple enough and I am crazy for a useful crafting project.
 I made two sets. I plan on having these available in the Fall 2018 STS. I missed the Spring swap by only a few days due to surgery so I determined not to miss the next one!
 The tops of these are made with flannel which I thought would be more absorbent than plain cotton fabric. The backs are terry cloth. I purchased and cut it instead of buying wash clothes. The snap together with Kam snaps.
 I also saw on-line that people were making little scrubbies in the same way to take the place of sponges. You can just throw them in the dishwasher or washing machine as well.

 The first set I chose a tie dye top fabric so stains wouldn't be as obvious. I love the fun vibrant colors. This one has 6 up-paper towels.

 The second set I did I made in paw prints. If it doesn't "sell" in the swap I will give these to my sister for Christmas. This set has 7 towels. I was a little better at cutting out the squares this time around.

 Now I need to make myself a set. Cheesy

 I saw necklaces like these on Etsy and loved them. They were about $30 each though and I am cheap by nature. Tongue  I decided to figure out a way to make them myself.

My first set turned out really pretty but when I glued the bases to the globe they fogged up inside. I ended up finding some glue that worked and didn't fog them up but then I had to hold them closed forever to seal them. Still, I think they turned out cute and I am happy with them.
 I made them in three different colors; pink, purple, and green crystals. I need to find more items that will fit in these globes. They have a straight spot at the bottom where the globe attaches so you have to raise whatever you put inside up a tad to avoid a weird distortion and so it can be seem clearly. I also added little crystal charms to the tops for some flare.

 Thanks for checking them out!

These are super cute holders for air plants - so fun!

Air Plants
Wire Cutter
Round Object
Stones, Wood or Whatever! Smiley

Cut a length of wire. The length depends on the size of your rock and also how tall you want your holder to be AFTER you make a loop.

Wrap your wire around the stone tightly. Afterwards, use your round object to create a loop -  be sure the size isn't too large or small to hold an air plant.

Voila! You're done!

Now you just need to set up your air plant. Feel free to move and adjust the wire as needed. So fun! Smiley
