Perhaps more culinary than craft, I've seen photos of impressive cakes decorated by Catherine Manning (not sure her mudcat name now).

These days when just about anything wears out I send a note to my daughter (Moonglow). She makes costumes with a huge array of materials. Projects can involve fabric, but also things that come from the hardware store or the office supply store - and tons of stuff is purchased at the thrift store and remade for her needs. It's really something to watch a costume evolve.

I had a nice vinyl satchel handbag that began tearing at a couple of points so I let her know it's in her room (storage is at my house, she lives in the town where she is in graduate school). Next time she needs some costume part that looks like leather this bag will be dismantled.

I have been sewing a stuffed toy wombat for our expected first grandchild - haven't made a stuffed toy before. It only needs eyes and it will be finished. Am also about to start a knitted jumper (sweater), and make more quilts and clothes......yesterday I finished block number 220 of what will probably the only quilt I make by hand. Only five more blocks to go, they they start being joined!

After having to take some months off sewing, knitting and other crafty activities following shoulder surgery late last year - it feels so good to be back creating 'stuff'.

I did sign in to Revery sometime back, but never used it (oops)

I've just finished a large project - a stripy rug & am working on my sister's 60th birthday pressie (a cushion cover with poodles! due last November), but I did send off her chrissy pressie - tea towels a few months back & also an in-betweener pressie (4 napkins decorated with the poodle wearing pink bow.)

She is owned by a gorgeous little black poodle & I've been collecting poodle images & appliquing them on stuff for her. When the cushion cover is complete, I'm making her a 1950's style hostess half-apron.

full details here on Cup of Kindness where Catters can discuss non-music stuff.

I'm still making shawls and phone pouches, pink scarves for the Breast Cancer unit of our local hospital and scarves and hats for the homeless shelter this winter. I also worked out hats with a ponytail hole, which my stepdaughter thinks might sell, come the autumn, in the hair salon where she works.

I started teaching crochet and knitting at a women's shelter in Portland about three years back and that is going well.

I've been experimenting with making shawl pins. My daughter's father-in-law made some wooden pins for me, which I then stain, and I watch out for interesting brooches and pendants that might look good glued to the pin.

We used to talk about crafts and art more when Katlaughing was alive. I came across this thread while looking for something else.

I know we have a few folks who could add to this - LilyFestre has taken up quilting since last time it was brought to the top. I still have a lot of beading stuff around but haven't made much progress (I have, however, stopped buying supplies until I get started using the ones I have!) I see MMario putting up crochet patterns on facebook every so often. What else is going on out there?

Today my daughter picked through some yardage that came from a friends house after we cleaned it out (before moving). She sews a great deal, and I used to sew a lot more. Lately it's mostly mending. I'd love to have a big holiday project to sew. I'd also love to have the time to sew it!

I haven't even thought about holiday stuff yet.

I'll be going to a craft retreat this weekend & am not interested in the workshops offered so I vaguely expect to take some of my newer felt toy books & supplies & make toys! For me, as samples for my craft class.

I assume I'll make small felt toys or chrissy decorations for folks again, tho as I now have 2 recipes (I'm not a cook!) I just might make them, too.

One is a bread pudding, the other a date slice. Both rely on dried fruit for sweetness & are simple. Recipes available if wanted.

Scarves that I'm hoping to sell to raise funds to keep my craft group going at the women's shelter.

Looking at shawl patterns and my yarn stash to see what appeals.

Got to finish SINSULL's afghan - that's been sitting for a while waiting to have the cats cross stitched onto it.

So what are people working on for the holidays this year? Many of my gifts will be of the food variety, consumable so it doesn't create clutter for the recipient, but there are a few things I'll be making. I really like using cloth tote bags for carrying stuff and I have a couple of good ones I use a lot. For color variation I've picked up some tapestry and canvas and will be making a couple for me and probably a couple for my daughter. I'm looking at the various well-designed ones from the LL Bean catalog for inspiration in addition to the models I have here.

What are you making these days?

Been a while since this thread was up at the top.

How are our Mudcat artisans doing these days? I'm finally getting some of the beading done here that I've spent ages collecting materials for. It has been a matter of a good place to set out the work and be able to return to it without disassembling my work or disarranging a design not yet strung.

I see that Don Meixner has another silver bracelet in the auction. It's getting to the time of year for gift giving - I'm just thinking out loud, but since Mudcat had that big crash earlier this month this might be a good time to pull out anything that will be well-received, bid way up, and easy to wrap and ship and put it in the auction.

You'd have been wet about 50% of the time in Fort Worth at this year's Main Street Festival. It came with the obligatory thunderstorms on Friday, passing over the top of town in series of storms. Saturday was drizzly. Of course the short 1/2 day was gorgeous.

Wesley,

No, no Fort Worth this year. It's a gem of a show, and everyone wants to do it. So it is a VERY tough jury. VERY tough. I'll keep trying, but I've talked to other potters who call it a "once-per-decade" show for potters. I hope they're wrong!

Kat,

Thanks for the kind compliments. Etsy has been VERY good for me. VERY good. About $5,000 in sales in my first four months with the site.

If ANYONE is interested in etsy, but a little confused about the "how-to" of getting started, just PM me. I'm always happy to help other artist/craftsmen get started with it. It can be immensely rewarding.

Only been decorating recently, the front room is now done. Starting on Harry's room with a mural of Thomas the Tank Engine, it's going to take a bit of time.

In our spare time we've been working on some invitation designs. Got a few ideas we're working on. Paul's been asked to make some jewellry for someone so that's taking up most of his evenings at the moment.

As to de-cluttering, I probably should join a support group... but actually my astro (Michael) has been a good influence, and there's been a lot gone in the past year. The rug-hooking loom is in the last persistent pile in the bedroom -- of stuff that *must* go to a good home. Of course, he claims there's more to be done... ;-)
