This one goes to Aaron's Mom's parents. The Grandparent's names are on the birds at the top of the tree. Each one of their children have a leaf as does their spouse, children, and their spouses. The quilts were a lot of work, but I think they were really worth it. I guess we'll see how they are received on Christmas Eve. You can go to my Flickr to see more shots and a pic of the back to show off the quilting!
I think I am FINALLY done holiday crafting!!!!! Now back to my regular scheduled swaps!

I didn't have a pattern, so I started with a donkey plush pattern, modified the head, and did the rest with nothing but my imagination. I love how it turned out and hopefully I'll get a pic with Aaron and his new "mount" on Christmas morning!

http://www.sittingprettystudio.blogspot.com/ and you can check out her great Etsy store here
http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5101750. Go on and enter! It would be great to have a portrait of your current pet or a memorial to a beloved pet that has passed! Check it out!
I think I'll be making more of these with embroidery on them for my Etsy shop. I also think they'd make great reusable shopping bags!

I finally was able to finish 2 more gifts in the last 2 days and I'm making progress on others. Handmade holidays are not easy! I would post pics of the 2 items I've finished, but the people that will be receiving them may just happen to read this! I don't want to ruin surprises. I will however be posting the first of the family tree quilts that I'm making for the Hubby's grandparents this year very soon.
I so feel like just crafting for the sake of crafting, but when gifts are needed I become a crafty machine with no time to really craft things just for the heck of it. I can't wait until the holidays are done and I can swap a few more times. Back to the craft dungeon and another gift!

One happy man in a kilt!

If you'd like to make a block post on her blog and let her know.
I found a block similar to this in a image search on google. I just drew it out a bit differently and cut away, but I have done away with the crystal ball, because it won't fit on the block size I'm doing. Now I just have to applique it on to the blue fabric and I can send it off and watch it get made into an awesome quilt.

When I'm gone and you're left behind
My love won't stop with the passing of time.
I may travel the ends of the Earth astray
But my love for you grows day by day.
The time that passes
The miles we're apart
Will only mean a lonely heart.
Isn't it just beautiful. Sappy I know, but the fact that a man wrote this for a woman is touching.
I will post the other when I get it figured out. It is even more romantic.

In other news, I took some fun photos of Roamy Gnomey at the capitol building that I will be posting tomorrow. It was exciting and I can't wait to share.
I also got to go craft shopping while I was there! I bought fabric for 2 family tree quilts that are going to Aaron's grandparents for Christmas, some sculpy for me to play around making creepy doll faces, some jewelry findings including some kilt pins to decorate, and some canvas boards for stretching some embroidery projects!
Look for the pictures of Roamy Gnomy tomorrow!

The witchy on the top is from knickertwist in Ontario Canada, the day of the dead skelly on the right is from Lmcbride in Vermont, the voodoo doll to the left of skelly is from koalascout in Georgia, the skinny little faceless creep on the left is from scotskipper402 in Virginia, and last, but not least the green wicked witch on the bottom is from Carrieme in Florida! I love all my creepies so much I've joined the 2nd round of the swap to add to my tree!

This pic is taken out of my front window, and yes that is my car covered in snow on OCTOBER 12th! We usually have snow on Halloween, or at least have had snow and it is miserably cold. I had to wear my costume over a snow suit or jacket more times than not. Oh well, happy winter!

The kilt is about 50% done and it is looking good. I realized tonight that he is going to need at least 1 accessory to wear with his kilt and he will not wear a sporran so I thought a kilt pin would be appropriate.
If anyone makes jewelry and would like to make a kilt pin I'd be happy to swap with them. If you have 1 that isn't decorated yet and just want to swap that I'll be happy to swap for something for that as well. Just leave a comment!

I hope to stitch up a few more of these tonight and maybe tomorrow.

If you want to see lamp #1 go to my flickr account. why are the lamps from yesteryear so much nicer than today's garbage?

I don't know how I timed this picture right, but he has let go of the string and the arrow is leaving the bow. That bow is a work of art in it's own right. Hand made to his specifications. Cost a pretty penny to, but we won't go into the ruckus that caused around here. Let's just hope he can bring home something we can eat with the thing.

Off to obsess and see if I truly have partners partnered up right!

So I'm not really a quilter, but when inspiration hits I usually follow it. I made this for a swap, but I just had to share it. The tree represents the tree Odin was hung on for 9 days in Norse mythology. During those 9 days he learned the Runes, which are quilted around the edge of the quilt. On the tree is a bird, squirrel, and lizard to represent the different elements. I appliqued the tree, leaves, and creatures on to the quilt top and left the edges raw so they will fray a bit for texture. The back is the solid brown you see around the edges. The Runes are quilted in a very cool fall toned variegated thread. I'm super proud of this and can't wait to send it off.
For closer pics click on the picture to visit my flickr site.

The hubby grew out his hair on purpose for the wedding, but now he wears it short, and yes we are hippys of sorts, he is wearing birkenstocks. It was a wonderful day and each year that goes by makes it seem even better.

I've also started Christmas/Yule crafting. Each person usually gets 2 gifts. Some get 2 crafted items others get only 1. I also have those few people who don't take to crafted gifts so they get store bought crap LOL. Nothing is worse than a gift you slaved over getting that "uhhh thanks" and a roll of the eyes.
OOO I almost forgot I'm also embroidering a sampler for a Craftster challenge. It is going to be double duty as it is also going to be my Hubby's anniversary gift. It will be 3 lovely years married for us on August 13th!
Off to bed and then up bright and early for another day of juggling housework and crafting.
