I have started this new thread to replace the old one which was just too full.

Here is something I'm working on.



I'm using fabric from the fabric swaps.

Heather, I agree with you. The white cover would make me crazy. It makes it so you canít see the picture or know what part is coming. I havenít had one with solid white yet and I hope I donít get one.

Lisa, those are awesome! Not something I could do. I canít draw to save my life lol! Would love to see if anyone here could make them though.

Maybe when all the important stuff is caught up I will paint tea bags but I kind of doubt it.

On Prudent Homemakers blog, one of the commenters said her daughter was painting tea bags. She said she rinsed them, hung them to dry, painted with water colors and gifted them as bookmarks (string and tag still attached). I know I could never do that, but some of you talented gals may be able to!

Apparently it's a thing!

Marie - I've heard about reverse applique - you'll have to let us know how it turns out and how you liked doing it!

Krista - I'm not sure which I prefer yet. I was trying to listen to a virtual farm conference when I was working on it the other day and I noticed that a couple of my squares were crooked. That's not a problem with the round ones. The first one I did had a clear plastic over the picture but this one had a solid white paper over the picture. That's driving me nuts! Not really sure why but it is. I'll let you know after I get more done which I like better. I'll definitely share a picture when it's done. I don't have the pictures uploaded of my santa in the frame so maybe next time I'll have them ready to show.

Heather, I haven't tried a square diamond painting yet. Do you prefer the round? You will have to share your next diamond painting with us! And have fun with your swap! It sounds exciting!

I have started receiving the Swatch of the Month from Alabama Chanin. https://alabamachanin.com/products/swatch-of-the-month-subscription?taxon_id=39



I am learning how to do reverse applique with a pre-stenciled top piece, tie-dyed bottom piece and complete instructions. I am excited.

I'm already working on another diamond painting!! My husband got me one for Christmas that's a winter scene with a barn and a snowman. It's smaller than the other one I did, but the diamonds are square on the bottom instead of round so I have to pay attention when I put them on the picture.

I've been working on a couple swaps. The happy scrapper swap has got my mind filled with ideas - which means there is fabric all over my living room!!! We'll see what I come up with LOL!!

Heather, that is so sweet of your mother in law! Do you think you will make another one now? I will definitely share pictures of my bookmark as I go along. Itís the train and platform 9 3/4 theme! The little bit you can see is the starting of the 9. I would love a wand for dishes and laundry! My 2 least favorite things lol and an invisibility cloak would be loads of fun too! A fun way to sneak up on my kids and scare them lol!

I worked a little more on my bookmark over the weekend and started a new diamond painting. The best part is.... the diamond painting is for my hubby for this next Christmas! Iím definitely getting a head start lol!

Denise - If your grandkids don't like them you can adopt me LOL!!

Krista - I have the best mother in law in the world! I mentioned I needed to look for a frame the next time I was in town since my diamond painting is done. She stopped at Hobby Lobby after her dr. appointment yesterday and bought one for me. I got tied up today but hopefully tomorrow I'll get it framed. I'll take a picture when I do. You'll have to post a picture when your book mark is done. I can't figure out what it's going to be yet. It's a great idea for your books! I don't have anything other than the books and DVD's. I'd love to find a wand and the spell to make the dishes wash themselves though! And oh the fun I could have with that invisibility cloak LOL!! Wouldn't you agree Linda? Have you read the books or watched the movies Denise?

I am currently working on a cross stitch book mark to go with my Harry Potter books. It was a cute kit I found online! Iím excited to finish it!


Krista
MaryJanesNiece Posted - Jan 11 2021 : 12:29:43 PM
Heather, I have only read 1-4. Number 5 is on my New Years resolution to read. My hubby is gone on a trip this week, so I actually plan to start it tonight since I wonít have anyone to talk to lol! I have seen all the movies and own them too. Thatís how I fell in love and decided to read the books to get all the extras not included in the movie. I have also started to collect the illustrated books. I now have books 1-3. A good amount of my sweatpants and shirts are Harry Potter themed! And so is my comforter and some blankets lol! You could say Iím obsessed!

Your diamond painting is gorgeous! Do you plan to frame and hang it.

Denise, that is so exciting! I bet your grandkids will love the sheets!

Krista
levisgrammy Posted - Jan 09 2021 : 3:39:40 PM
I found more of the Harry Potter fabric on a bolt. It is the white back ground so I bought enough to make two twin size flat sheets. I will get white fitted bottom sheets to go with them. All i have to do is stitch the sides and ends to make the top sheets. I think the grands will love them. I hope so anyway.

I have and have read all the Harry Potter Books. I started after 1-4 were written and then had to wait on pins and needles for the next ones. LOL! I loved them all. The movies are not as explicit, but they are good. I just read the books first, and also ad 1-4 on cassettes.

Today I'm going to start making my Feed Sack project for the Swap. Finally decided on a couple things to make for my partner.

What lucky puppies! My kitties have straw for a blanket LOL (they're all outside barn cats) I'm not sure they would even know what to do with a blanket!

Brenda - your work looks amazing!

Denise - who will be the lucky recipient of your pillowcases?

Krista - have you read all the Harry Potter books yet? I came across the movies first. My husband and I thought it sounded like the best option available at the time we went to the theater. We ended up loving it. Hubby's not a reader but the next time I went to Walmart I saw the second book. I know books are always better than the movie so I bought it. When I finished one I would get the next one when ever I was in town. Until one day... the next one wasn't there!!!! I was shocked to find out I had caught up to the books being released (or what ever you call it). I became one of those fans counting down the days until I could get the next one LOL! I have all the DVD's too.


I finished my diamond painting. I don't have time to upload the pictures before milking so I'll get it next time I'm on here. I'm working on a swap project now (sewing). It's going to be hard to give it away!

Vanessa, I sure do love my dogs! They are spoiled! I think yours are too!

Brenda, your work is beautiful. Is the bicycle one a hat?

Denise, I am definitely not brave enough to own a tiger lol! But now I know what she can be for Halloween this year. Oh my goodness! I absolutely love your pillow cases! I am a huge Harry Potter fan (if you can't tell from my blanket up above lol) I think it's really neat to do them different on each side. Great job.

Krista

Love all these projects.
Krista, when I first saw your picture of your pup I thought it was a tiger. Lol! I thought wow, brave gal.
I'm working on some pillowcases. This one is folded over so you can see the front and the back.

I got busy on some UFOs over the weekend and finished 2 of them! I bought a tie blanket kit a year ago and never started, so I'm happy its finally done! Also Maylee was always stealing our blankets off the couch so I bought her some fabric to make a blanket just for her. Well bought that fabric a couple months ago and was finally tired of her stealing mine so I got hers made too.
My blanket

Maylee's new blanket which is apparently to small lol. She may be getting a new and
bigger one.

Ruthie, that will be a nice quilt.
