I get so overwhelmed by it all...there are so many projects that get missed because people do not realize how many projects you guys do!!!

Please encourage the team members to post some of their projects separately so that others will know about them and the games!

There are actually bonus points available for players who post their projects up in the main boards.  But I agree, it should happen more, and if they mention the Games, more people will know that they exist!  Super fun way to spur creativity!

Whipped this up just now, a folding table ironing board, wanted to make one for a while and remembered there was a folding table that the previous owners left here. Used some mexican folk art calico fabric I think is beautiful!

The sea turtle is very pretty. I always liked the look of paint by number paintings. I'll have to look and see if there are any designs I like!

Lovely turtle painting. It reminds me I hope to go snorkeling soon and see turtles and fish but no jellyfish please.
Can you spot the turtle resting on this picture taken a few years ago?


Audio, my cat would love your ironing table, it looks quite comfy. Wink You found a very attractive fabric, I would make myself a blouse with it. It's beautiful. It reminds me I should recover my ironing table since it has suffered from the last incident involving an adult child, a teenager, an iron and the table.

Ahhh thank you, Ladybug! I felt kinda cheesy sharing a paint by numbers but I'm feeling better about it now.

Audio I love the look of paint by numbers, too! I love the vintage ones. I scroll through vintage paint by numbers on eBay all the time. They are so fun. And can I say that I would love to make one of those ironing boards. That fabric is awesome, too!

Yoopi! It took me a minute and then you just see him hanging out there right in the middle. I'm going to share that pic with the husband when he gets home Cheesy Thank you!

I finished some stuff!

17. is my terrible, evil, struggle of a triforce blanket. I crochet a lot. And I never realized I have never made triangles and tried to piece them together. I never really thought it would pucker in the middle of each triangle. And I think I might have done the entire thing upside down. BUT...its the thought that counts, right? and in its defense it is super soft. I miiiight do a little boarder to help the edges be triangle...but I worry that it would just make the puckering worse. I think I will block it today and then decide. Or I'll just throw it in the mail. Probably that.



and 18, 19 and 20. I made some freezer paper, cut out and fabric paint shirts and onesies this morning to drive home the Zelda point a bit. The onesies are to go along with the blanket but the t-shirt is because my younger son is a Zelda fiend that woke up in the middle of me working on the Zelda onesies. Smiley So I'm like mom of the year today. Here is a group pic of all three.




Oh! Bunny, friend. Im I supposed to go over the designs on the shirts with a warm iron to heat set them or is the fabric medium in the acrylic paint enough to keep it on the shirt?

Smiley- if you used fabric paint, you are good!  If you used regular acrylic with a fabric medium, you might want to heat set, just to be on the safe side.  They look fabulous, btw!  I have used handmade freezer paper in the past... I sooo much prefer the Reynolds on a roll!!!  I'm doubly impressed by the crispness of your designs if you're using homemade freezer paper.  Well done!  And a paint by numbers!  So fun!  I started several when I was a kid, never finished a single one.  LOL!  Your turtle looks great!

Also, Team Analog if you like old school - wind up clocks, paper books for example, and digital if you would prefer stuff like digital clocks or a kindle.

Beautiful fabric choice, Audio!  I need to make myself one of those.  I keep seeing them and being jealous. LOL!

Smiley, at what point did the triangles start puckering? If it was during the basic construction, you may be able to add a chain stitch between the blocks of double crochet stitches to make everything flat. Then just pretend the extra stitches aren't there when you move to the next round. If the extra stitches make the top edge ruffle, then only add a few chain stitches; maybe either side of the corner rather than between every block of dbl crochet. If the triangles were flat before they were joined, then your joining stitches are too tight. The easiest way to deal with that problem would be to use a larger hook for the joining. Hope this helps.

Ahhh K. Im afraid the little triangles were pucked all by themselves. If I had made the bigger triangles first I would have just made smaller versions of those. But I made the little puckers (affectionate term for them) and assembled them before making the outside ones that laid perfectly straight.

Making those outside triangles made me want to keep going and make some shawls. I see shawls in my future. But first there is a charity create-along that I am shipping 9 items, too. And a pair of socks that need finished. I love yarn. Just not granny triangles.
