I like making things for friends.  I like making things for babies.  And I really like making things for the babies of good friends.  These were made for the new babies of our very own Abbeeroad, who just welcomed twin girls into the world.  I wanted to do something that would coordinate, but not depend on the other to be wearing the matching outfit.  So if one little lady spits up all over hers, her sister still looks stylin' in hers.  I found a retro font in my library, and set up the text in the Silhouette software, then cut them from glitter heat transfer vinyl.  I've played with several types of htv, and the glitter seems to adhere the best, and wear well over repeated washings and dryings.

We've had some lovely weather this week so we played hooky and took a few hours off to visit Busch Gardens Tampa! Here's a sneak of some of the animals we saw.

ha ha ha I was hoping you remembered our tiny scrap challenge!!!  You know I will never forgive you for my inability to throw out the tiniest of scraps now!!  As of a matter of fact, I need to take a picture of one of my plastic bins that I use to hold my tiny hoard of scraps...lol

To make the new "fabric", I used water soluble interfacing that is used for embroidery. You take a piece of muslin or other cloth and lay your tiny pieces all over...throw on some thread, some yarn, etc. until it is totally covered. Cover it with the interfacing and then stitch the heck out of it on top...all directions in whatever random pattern you like or a grid...whatever...soak the piece in the sink to wash away the interfacing...some pieces might fall off if you didn't catch them in the stitching, but that's ok...if it bothers you, you can stitch it again, just lay another piece of interfacing in the spot...

I use these to make journal covers and as backgrounds for prayer flags and fabric journal pages...

The happy mail envelope and goodies I received from AIMR.

I love everything but to understand just how funny the last photo is and how very happy it made me you'd have to know some of the back story behind it. AIMR and I first became acquainted through the Quilt Block Swaps so, obviously, we both love quilts and we each have a ton of fabric scraps. Through the years we've exchanged many quilt blocks but we've also joked about our scrap hoarding and how we use them. I've sent her a starter kit for a Crumb quilt block (using fabric pieces as small as 9/16" square) and she's sent me a coaster set using very narrow strips left from some of her projects. This year my happy mail package to her included note cards displaying quilt block patterns using very small paper scraps, so she's retaliated by sending me material she's fabricated from infinitesimally tiny scraps of fabric and thread. I think she's won this round of one-upmanship! It certainly had me laughing! Now I just need to decide whether to frame the pieces or convert them into something else . . . maybe a small pouch?

I've received a yarn star from Acadian Driftwood. I can't be positive but it looks like she used a gold-printed paper from India that I sent her in an earlier swap as the center on  this side and another paper I sent her as the base for the other side. How fun!

Then edelC spoiled me by including candy bars with my Viking gnome. I love the gnome's multiple braids! DH and I did the DNA genealogy tests earlier this year and learned that our Irish ancestors showed traces of Scandinavian lineage, so I'm guessing that means we carry the blood of Vikings in our veins. Perfect year to add a Viking to our tree!

Thank you both!

It's NaNoWriMo! Which means Baranof has spent a good deal of time watching me write. (Not as much as I'd like... as you can see on the graph, our word count is considerably lower than the goal line!)

Don't worry... we have some actual adventures coming up soon. In the meantime... back to writing!  Grin
