Friends, you are all so kind. This is why I love LC so much. If I posted this on some other place I would probably get all kinds of comments on how wonky it is. I already know it is a mess, but it is a functional mess. Your kind words will give me the courage to try another kinetic project. You LC folks are the best.
Can I change my screen name to functional mess?
This is exactly why I have been lurking on the quiltalong thread but I will likely never actually try it myself. Measuring, straight lines, precise angles. That just sounds like work.
That would actually be an amazing screen name.
Yeah, I’m great at manipulating fabric, but totally bombed when it came to the fiddly fitting of stained glass.
We’re just “big-picture” crafters, I guess.
@mightymitochondria, you should be so proud of your accomplishment! It is so awesome! They are going to have so much fun playing with this!
It is SO FUNNY you say that. I have only dropped by them, but just joined the group to lock me in. Because of this! But I checked the rules, and since I don’t have to do the BOM, I’m going to do some of the casual, organic /modern ones! Which CAN BE less precise!! Come join us! We can be non-exact buddies!
Maybe I could give it a try! Thanks for the encouragement.
Hey! If you really want to do no measuring, do a crazy quilt! Plus it’s stash-busting, and you can embellish. And use whatever fabric you have!
This is the kit I have, but so far I’ve only gotten as far as opening the plastic & discovering I want to let it offgas a little before I work on it.
WOW! Is there a video of that contraption in motion? It looks so complicated… I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
I’m just going to go ahead and show off the marvellous Pepe the King Prawn that @endymion made for me a while ago …
Some of you might remember seeing him on the old site. He has a little lever that makes him jump up and down - he is beautifully made and I love him!
I might not be able to join in this craftalong, but I’m enjoying seeing all the clever things you are planning and making!!
Dear lord, I forgot about him until I saw him! Because he made my heart squeeze the last time too! Hahah!!! What good memories, and what A GREAT project! Utterly fantastic, @endymion!!!
HIS YIDDOL JACKET!!!
Omg he’s awesome! I just love that hair, too!
Haha! He jumped higher before I put his clothes on…
They all do.
Pepe is amazing! Amazing! Oh my gosh.
I received a kaleidoscope kit from Lee Valley, it’s pretty sturdy. I think I will embellish it to make it funkier.
I love kits.
