The Black Gate of Mordor


So, I’ve been doing SOME THINGS!

Something I’ve been sitting on for quite some time until it was released on Fandom In Stitches is The Black Gate. I took a bit of artistic licensed with the design, because as any Tolkien reader will know, you can’t actually see Mt. Doom from The Black Gate. But hey, I really wanted the mountain in my quilt, so there it is!

You can get the pattern for free as part of Not All Who Wander Are Lost, a Lord of the Rings Block of the Month hosted by Lilja over on Fandom In Stitches.

In other related Fandom In Stitches goodness, the #tfios Design Challenge is underway! If you’re a John Green reader and enjoy designing, please do check it out! We’d love to have you participate and share your designs inspired by The Fault in Our Stars, which I would venture to say is one of the best books I have ever read.

Challenge details are right here.

Momma's got a brand new bag!On a personal crafty note, I finished a project for myself that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while. This spiffy little bag  was made for a special reason and was created entirely out of fabric I had on hand, some of which were just scrappy bits and pieces. It fills a need for me that I’ve wanted to do something about for quite some time. I’ll talk about it more on next week’s TTMT!

Have you made any of my patterns? I’d love to see them! Share a link or better yet, add them to the Sewhooked flickr group!
