I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along coming 2016 on fandominstitches.com

Random Doings

Buttercup complete!
Just this evening, I finished stitching my first set of blocks for the As You Wish Quilt & Stitch along.

The Princess Bride. Seriously! The Buttercup blocks were designed by Elizabeth from Such A Sew & Sew. The quilt layouts for the event were designed by me.

Four Patch Layout for As You Wish
This is the one I’m using, though the more popular of my two designs for this event is definitely this one.

Making it real. #finishin2014
I did an epic post and my TTMT this week all about the UFOs I want to at least touch, and hopefully finish, in 2014. Today I made an actual, physical list on a giant piece of paper. My goal is to finish 2014 with less projects than I started with. I thought that maybe marking projects done from a real life list would inspire me and remind me of my goals!

New projects aren’t on this list, just stuff that’s been hanging around prior to this year.

Smug kitty is smug. One more of Merlin, then I'm done, promise! #mycatisadorable
Marie and Merlin say hello!

Four puzzle postcards for my David Tennant-loving daughter! Mailing one a day for the next four days. #geekmom #itsasecret
I made these postcards to send to my daughter. You see, I’m a giant geek mom and send my college freshman daughter a postcard every day. Yeah, you heard that right. EVERY day. She loves it. I love it. We’re all happy!

Anyway, I have these ancient printable postcards that are essentially a sheet of cardstock with perforations. To make these, I found an awesome wallpaper on fanpop.com by deedeedee123 and printed it to an 8 1/2″ x 11″ document without borders. It seriously worked a treat!

Because. David Tennant. Yeah.

Current crochet project…for The Linus Connection, my longtime favorite, Sideways Shell.

This one is slow going because I’ve mostly been working on hand embroidery the last month. My monthly goal is to donate two blankets per month to The Linus Connection. I missed it by ONE blanket in 2013 and I was super bummed. Seriously. ONE short. Pffth. I’ll do better this year!

Super old UFO #1 for 2014!
This is the first UFO I’m tackling for 2014. It’s 11 on the list. *points up* I’ve already gotten a good start . It’ll be a baby blanket and will again be donated to Linus. This one is so ancient, I don’t even remember when or why I started it! So far, I have done a quilt as you go technique and have most of it done. The goal is to have this one finished before next Tuesday!

Some Friday Things.

Bottle Organ

It’s awfully hard to share crafty goodness this time of year.

Among my usual drafting and scheming for future projects, I’ve been working on some gifts for people in my life. Obviously, I can’t show you that, so I thought a quick tour through some of my Instragram photos might be fun!

The Coke bottles you see above are part of a bottle organ created by my son and and his friends. Among other things, they played the Tetris theme song. Who says kids are only interested in video games? 😉

No idea what I’m talking about? Check out The Bottle Boys on YouTube. You’ll be entertained, I promise!

Scrappy binding cut for my Harry Potter alphabet quilt!

During the course of this past week, I worked on the binding for my Harry Potter alphabet quilt. I started with scrappy binding after a discussion with my trusty bee friends. Sadly, the awesome swirly purple didn’t make it in, but the rest of the lovely fabrics did!Binding in progress! Getting there. #binding

I worked on the quilt a little each night this week while hanging out with my husband and son, or as I call them around here, “my boys.”

Done! #binding

Here it is, binding all done! I finished up last night while I caught up on Big Bang Theory.

Look for photos of the quilt itself when it stops raining or on Talk To Me Tuesday…whichever comes first!

Wait, what’s that in the background? Yep, the bottle organ is still on my kitchen table!

Time to repair the buttons on my favorite coat. #mending Much better! #mending

Also this week, I mended the buttons on my favorite coat. This is a lovely double breasted jacket I found in a consignment shop years ago. The buttons were just looking sad, so I searched my thread for the perfect color and, wallah, good as new!

You Spoil Me With Your Photographic Goodness

I can hardly believe it’s been almost two months since I shared photos from the Sewhooked Flickr Group.

Shame on me for not sharing the AWESOME Sewhooked projects!

I can’t thank you all enough for continuing to take the share photos. You keep me inspired to design more, more, more!

Below you’ll find pictures of projects made from patterns or tutorials I created for The Sewhooked Shop, Free Quilt Patterns, Crafts and Fandom In Stitches. They are all wonderful…and welcome!
