哦,圣诞树!

现在,在我的头上,这听起来像的东西粗鲁的委婉说法。而且这都是我自己的错了。

说真的,我不知道我在想什么。一般概念 - 贴花一堆圣诞树形状的绿色打印 - 是相当简单的,或者它应该是。但没有什么那么简单,我通常不能找到一种方法,让生活更加困难喽!除了使用可熔网或冷冻纸模板(像任何理智的人可能),我决定使用纸模板切割出我的形状,然后试图胶绷他们。Uhmm ...。不那么令人满意。我想我是能够修剪后面的底布之后,以减少体积,又可以避免融合面料略“脆脆”的感觉模糊的想法。但是......这将是一个降临日历壁挂!它并不需要是紧密贴!没有人会在意一些地区笨重! WHAT WAS I THINKING?! Ahem. Still. This is the stuff of which learning curves are made, I believe. Also, I don’t actually own any freezer paper (it’s not such a common supermarket sight here in the UK), but this project has made me want to get some to try – I think it would have been better than what I did do.

然后,使事情变得更好,我开始机贴花我周围粘有带螺纹的形状,这是完全绿色的深浅错误和完全挨针的错款式 - 太宽,太密集。事实上,它看起来那么可怕,我甚至没有停下来找到摄像头 - 那玩意儿得到了与拆线这么快甚至没来得及眨眼击中。如果你想有一个心理图像,图片脂肪,条纹青虫与丑陋的扭结在它遇到了一些布铺设,而你即将出现。幸运的是,我也有做的事情做得更好朴素的深色绿色线程的可遇不可求量,特别是密度较小的Z字形缝合减仓东西为好。而且,事实证明,缝纫绿等绿色更绿是艰苦的工作 - 谁知道?

因此,所有的绿色已经被安全appliqued,这至少意味着我可以停止恐慌失去织物或纸样位。这不是圣诞节了一段时间,但是我要和这个执着的,因为我想它现在完成了,请。真的,没有做更多的事 - 只是绷和被子,并以令人愉悦的方式附加降临口袋。而下一次,我尝试做这样的事情,我会更懂得如何处理它 - 或者至少不要做什么。

项目莱纳斯 - 该Scrappening

完成后2熊历险记上衣,我发现我有不少遗留广场和钢带。在不想浪费来自慈善机构的物资什么精神,我切条放入更多的方块,做了一大堆的四个补丁程序,然后将它们拼凑成四个大正方形中一个相当随机的方式。butterflies_2该sashing和边框是从我自己的藏匿处。这让我想起了很多的窗口,而绿色和黄色的模样斑驳的森林光。虽然我喜欢这个有很多,这不是真的很适合儿童的(它看起来像世界上最环保壁挂),所以我在抽屉里废料翻遍了一段丰富多彩位,扔在它的一些蝴蝶:蝴蝶窗好多了!

易熔网络中增加了蝴蝶,但也带着几分周围曲折或毯子十字绣做,以确保他们留在原地,并给他们定义的一个不错位。被子俱乐部就在明天,我真的很期待交给我的三个莱纳斯上衣蛋白酶,因此她可以将它们添加到事业。

创意Oozings#24 - 的FRU。茶。灰。

我已经成功地得到很少最近做。部分原因是因为我已经无处可设置一台缝纫机,部分是因为我所有的缝纫机似乎是在死亡的不同阶段。妈妈的Huskystar,这一直是我的原则机至少一年,碰上了管道泄漏,我们已经和被发现坐在水坑。I took it to my trusty sewing machine repair man and he worked minor miracles to clean out the rust and get it working again (fortunately it’s a purely mechanical machine), but when I came to use it at Quilt Club I found that the tension seemed to be all over the place, it was not sounding completely right, and then a screw fell out while I was doing a bit of free-motion quilting on the border. Ack. And Toby’s quilt is now partially quilted but I think I’m going to have to rip it all out and start again because the back is a nightmare of loops. I’m going to take it back to Mr Knight to see if anything can be done to salvage it (again!). But that’s ok, I thought – I have my cheap-ass AEG machine that I bought in Germany! It’s been serviced and sorted after I accidentally nadgered it, let’s see how that works out. It won’t FMQ (can’t drop the feed dogs), but maybe I can make a start on piecing Jess’s quilt!

I’ve been wanting to make some more bags for a while, so when a pack of five sashiko-themed fat quarters from eBay somehow found its way into the house, I decided they’d be perfect to use in a quilted patchwork messenger bag.日本蓝胖季度

创意Oozings#8 - 带阁楼Windows进度

昨天是被子俱乐部的日子,这一天,我们都因为开始我们的阁楼的Windows项目。I’d hoped to be able to have all my fans ready and fabric bought for the background squares, but January has been a busy month work-wise (yay) so I hadn’t had the time to spend playing with fabric (boo). As it was, I didn’t even have time to cut all the strips I needed before the session, so while other members zoomed along doing gorgeous Attic Windows with glittery New York skylines or vibrant poppies, I plodded along with my rotary cutter and sewing machine and generated a pile of bi-coloured rectangles in sets of three, enough for 24 blocks.Bicoloured矩形

创意Oozings#5 - 圣诞礼物

圣诞节前不久,史蒂芬妮提出,我们做了几个小项目可能成为圣诞礼物的。一个是针板,另一个是一个圣诞主题织物花圈。I ended up being a bit after the fact with the pin board and making it at home (because I’d got in a mix-up over which session we were doing it in), but managed to be in sync for the wreath (which was awkward because it was the week that pretty much all of us forgot to bring along cutting mats and rotary cutters!). Digging through my stash, I realised that I had a surprising amount of Christmassy fat quarters, though I’d bought a few more just in case. I like Christmas fabric a lot (it’s usually so sparkly!), but I also find it a real challenge in terms of design because it’s SO Christmassy. Anyway.
