I hope you both
@Trillian and @bluebird will post a bunch more of your old (and new) projects!!!
WE HAVE 45 ENTRIES!!! If my quick count is accurate. Wouldn’t it be SOOOO COOOOOL to hit FIFTY NEW POSTS!? It sure would.
Faaaa-aaaa-aaaan-tastic! I guess we better set a stretch goal then.
How about 60? Can we get
10 MORE BY MIDNIGHT TONIGHT? (US Pacific Time)
This is not an entry because I already have 3 in the mix. But my friend sent me this photo today and it prompted a post
I recently started using my Instagram account and one of my friends has sent a picture of this bag I made some years ago. Proves I did use some of the huge denim stash I managed to accumulate!!
Thanks for sharing it here AND making a post with it - even after doing all three of your others!
Ok, one more from me if we are doing foursies!
Flaming heart needlebook
Nothing would ever get done around here if it weren’t for the last minute…
Some highlights from the ongoing household mending piles:
Problem: “This shirt is too scratchy! No, it’s pretty, you can’t give it away!”
Problem: too many short sleeves, not enough long sleeves, plus a child who has decided to chew thumb holes into longer sleeves that haven’t got them already.

Problem: too many t-shirts, not enough cute dresses (especially that protect the back of my shoulders from getting sunburnt!)

I managed to convince my kid that she should have prehistoric art as part of her birthday party theme this year, so I got to make paints for favors!
Here they are, in “action”:
Seashells are the oldest recorded paint cups. (they were also used like this in the middle ages)
I have a bad habit of spending too much time making party things for kids who enjoy them for twenty seconds before moving on, so I ordered pre-ground ocher and lamp-black. I also got powdered…
One more from me!
Mini Pattern Review:
Blythe Dresses - 1 Pattern 4 Ways
@kittykill your recent posts would be perfect for this challenge!
Getting in under the wire!
Here are my 3 entries
I made these quilled Js for
@photojenn in a Christmas swap a while back. Quilling looks so complicated but it’s pretty easy and looks so fancy.
I love see your work! My favorite is the radish. I love how you did the letter R. So cool!
Last one, just to get it out from my drafts.
This was made for round 2 of the mug rug swap. I knew I wanted to ”yarn” something, since I’m not very confident with a sewing machine. After mulling over my partners themes I had the idea to make a fulled mug rug with applied icord edges that would somehow make keltic knots in the corners. That’s… not what happened.
I pulled out some yarn that had been waiting for the right project. It’s Rowan purelife British sheep breeds, colourway (and fibre) mid brown Jacob.
My original plan was…
Oh good, I’m not the only procrastinator!
I’ve had everything to make this purse for a long time, and had made a test version of the pattern on the old site, but just hadn’t executed it.
Now that I have, it’s easily my most IRL complimented project of all time.
The pattern is Blue Calla Dandelion Double Zip Handbag, and it’s made with just basic quilting cottom with black vinyl straps.
Here’s what the middle pocket looks like - each of the zip pockets is just a single big section.
I have since…
But I didn’t get around to it. I have excuses!
I just added my third project:
These are a couple of items I made for the color in a box swap.
This dice bag was made using both a tutorial and machine embroidery design from Urban Threads. The inside is lined with the jade material.
I altered the pattern for this pop-up container so that it would have pockets on the bottom half. Because it uses a spring to keep its shape, it was easy to compact it down to fit into the box.
I happened to have a shipping box on hand that worked perfectly with my color i…
So many awesome projects! I’m glad this is a random drawing and we don’t have to vote!
So true! This would be a super tough vote!
Way to show up, LC!!!
