Okay… I have not been great at commenting on projects for a while, so it’s time to get back on track! I know I commented on some of these projects on their actual posts, but I didn’t go and check each one, so I commented on them all, just to make sure I didn’t miss one (or, at least, I hope I didn’t!).
@Lynx2Lancer: I am really impressed with your re-upholstered ottoman. I’ve done quite a few re-upholstery projects in the past, and I know how challenging they can be! Your Sympathy cards are just lovely, and I love the hummingbird on the back. Your puffin felt square makes me wish, again, that I had gotten to see some this summer. I like the detail you achieved with the felt. Excellent set of tags from Christmas cards. It’ll be so fun to use them next year for gift giving! I like your backyard friends notecards. You have some great shots in there- The one with the woodpecker is fantastic, and the squirrel is just so cute. But, your Felted Birds project is just so amazing! I think it may be my most favorite thing you have ever made. Each individual bird was beautiful, but the way you displayed them is just so perfect! And, your “mask” cards are so funny! Where did you find the inside text? Is it a stamp? Your Machu Picchu painting is just lovely. I like how you added just enough black outlines to define things without overwhelming the overall softness. And, your Reduce the Yarn Stash projects are great! I can’t believe how fast you’re knocking them out! The crochet lace scarf looks nice and soft, and I like how you blended the 2 yarn colors together. Your second scarf looks so nice and warm! The chunky rainbow scarf is so bright and cheery! That chunky cowl is such a neat technique- I thought you had to weave it every time you put it on, so I’m glad you don’t! But, your pumpkin bear is so cute! How many will be in the patch when you’re finished? I like the C2C pouch- that pink lining is so fun! Did you hand sew the lining in place? And, I like the hat and scarf set you made- will you co-worker get the scarf, too? I like your heart wreath- I think it has the right amount of sweet I like the Valentine cards, too- so much great texture!
@megwell: What a great idea to make a variety of scrappy embellishments in advance- it’ll be so handy to have them pre-made when you are working on other projects that just need a little something extra! I love your potholder- I just came across my loom and package of loops, and I was so tempted to sit and make a potholder on the spot! But, I had to tuck it away for another day. But now, I’m tempted to take it out again! I like your interpretation of the White Space journal layout! It’s so bold with the strong black and white sections and the bright, vibrant colors! And, I laughed at your “burritodilla” because I, too, always overstuff wraps! And, Leslie Knope Valentines- simply awesome!
@Bunny1kenobi: Your seahorse card is fantastic- the seahorse really stands out from the blended background (a technique I haven’t tried yet). And, your smoker hat for your dad is hilarious! Did he love it? And, what a great idea to use vinyl to identify the S & P and to cover up the holes- it’s a win-win! I like your goal board- it’s much nicer than the list I was keeping on the bathroom mirror! And, what a sweet and thoughtful charity donation. It makes me sad that they’re needed, but happy that they’ll have them.
@gozer: Your embroidered rose pendant is simply gorgeous. The embroidery looks so delicate against the black background, and the pendant frame sets it off so nicely! But the bee pendant! Gah! I love it so much! Your LC Snail Mail stamp is amazing! I love how you used the lettuce as the snail shell- so clever! I really like your Golden Snitch TM patch- I knew what it was right away! And, I bet grape sherbet is delicious! I’ve never made sherbet before. I have a mini ice cream maker, so I might have to attempt this at some point. You captured Venkman so splendidly in his felt doppelgänger. What a wonderful way to remember him! And, his little bag is so sweet, too! Is it big enough to hold his little blankie? Those dino magnets are just so cute! Such tiny stitches! I like the colors you chose for them, too.
@storerboughtcreation: Your niece is adorable in her Minnie Mouse dress! And, your other niece is just so cute in her Bubblegum sweater (I would totally wear that). It’s so cool that you get to make clothing for them! I really like your Hummingbird Mandala-the colors you chose are perfect! I haven’t tried cutting a design like that, but I think I have at least one cut file for one. I’m hoping to clear off my craft “table” in my craft room so I can keep my Silhouette out, which will make me use it more!
@roler: It boggles my mind how quickly you picked up crochet and are just knocking out such adorable creations. Your Toucan is just so cute (I love his little legs). And, I have the supplies and pattern for the cuttlefish, but I have a feeling it won’t look as cool as yours! And the gecko! Oh, my! I think I might need to make one of those, too- so adorable! Great job on your Sawtooth Star block! It wasn’t the easiest block to make, so I’m impressed at how you worked through some challenges to create such a pretty end result. And, your ATCs for GeekyBookworm are so fun! And, I love how you incorporated your Star Wars TM patches (Darth Vader is cute as a little feltie!). And, your Bufflehead ATC is so cute- you captured the colors on his head so well! And, good job for using what you had on hand!
@geekgirl: I really like your lettuce stamp. I need to make one for my LC mail- you’ve inspired me! Your white space journal page came out so great!!! I love the eyes that you used, the background colors are gorgeous, and the quote is most excellent! And, your trash art page is also fabulous. I love how you can take trash and turn it into something beautiful. And, your Northern Lights hoop makes me swoon- it’s so beautiful! I like those little note cards! They look like the perfect size for tucking into swap packages! Your art journals are so wonderful! I love the variety of techniques you used on all of your pages! And, your Lettuce Valentines are so fun. I love the backgrounds you used for each one. And, now, after looking at the photo of the butter chicken, I am hungry. I haven’t made butter chicken yet, but I think I’ll have to try it soon!
@Inselaeffchen: Ah, Among Us… so many of my students love it! I’m having an attendance raffle next month, so perhaps I need to make one as a prize!
@ezrib: Fantastic snowflake coasters! And, great idea to crochet a “winter” coaster that you can keep using long after Christmas has passed. I love your paper snowflakes, too. I would love to do something like that. Several years ago, in my classroom, I had “heat snakes” hanging from the ceiling (paper coils, essentially), and I used to love how they moved in the air- it was such a calming effect! And, cilantro pesto… yum… I will definitely be making this at some point! And, I’ll have to look up what Shakshuka is- it looks delicious! I like your scratch off cards- what did you use for the scratch-off portions? Such a fun idea! And, your veggie hammock is such a clever solution for holding veggies! I also have a terrible kitchen, so I can fully appreciate a clever storage solution!
@Tanath: I really like that snowflake pendant! I haven’t done much bead weaving, but I could be tempted to try now!
@Smeddley: That crochet gnome is too stinkin’ cute! I love the wonky stripes on his hat!
