Back on track

Here is what I have been up to:

Finished my first Block from jacquelynnesteves.com Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM

I have been too busy to blog and I decided I couldn't since some of these were Christmas surprises. I made a batman quilt for my granddaughter. Yes, she has a crush on Batman :) This pattern is on Craftsy from Laurel B.
I made an Ariel quilt for my other granddaughter. She loves that movie! My friend gave me the panel and I got to practice FMQ all around the sea shells and Ariel's hair and body. I also stuffed flounder to give him a little 3 D look.
  I made a  Wonder Woman quilt for my daughter. I searched for a photo of Wonder Woman on Google and then I traced it with a light box and then used the Thread Art quilting process by Lola Jenkins. Finally coloring it in with colored pencils

I didn't know if I would get finished in time but luckily I completed the last one the Sunday before Christmas.

I am now getting Krochet Krazy.  I found this site by Sharon Ojala Amigurumi To Go. I made this cute little mouse with his own winter scarf. 

All of these patterns and tutorials are free.  I gave her a donation for sharing all of this with us but it is not required. My first crochet animal was this bear. 

 I got the pattern from a little book that I bought from Walmart.  I also made a little mermaid crochet doll. (guess I don't have a picture of that one)  This website has a link to several mermaid patterns. Pink Mambo While at work I think about crafting all day but when I get home I am beat. I still want to craft but I just sit on the couch rather than go to the sewing room.  So I can crochet on the couch and relax.  I signed up for the Harry Potter  Project of Doom quilt along at Fandom in Stitches.  I am going to do the Sweetwater Co.  BOM, loved the fabric.  I won a trip to Hampton, VA Quilt Fest Feb 2015 Yeehaw! I am now a Block tester for Quiltmaker 100 blocks Yahoo! I am still designing blocks to go to my Crafsty pattern store.  Antony is free and Wormey is too. I plan to have more FREE patterns soon. I have signed up for the Tammy Bag Blog Hop and the We Support You Blog Hop. Check them out!  I also became a member of Crafty Gemini Quilt Club. I attend a quilting bee twice a month and I am a board member of the Vance Quilts R US guild. I am sure I missed something. Wow all of this since my last post. Shoosh now that I talked about all of this I know why my head is spinning all of the time!  Next year I plan on taking more as I go photos and I want to learn to take better quality photos. Until next time Have a Kwilt Krazy Day!
