Squidoo Hopping 4/24/14



With Easter and the perparations, I'm sad to say that I only visited squidoo a few times this past week.
I have some catching up to do!

I do have goals that I WILL make this week.
I have 4 lenses left that I need to decide which 20 amazon links are staying. I will get those done.
I also have a craft book review written up in word as well as pictures to go with it.  I will get that new lens up too.

This week in the linky I will share the other 2 lenses of mine that were put into the Best Of category.

Happy Squidooing!

WIP Wednesday 4/23/14

I only have one picture this week for my works in progress.
I worked most of this last week on the toothbrush rug that I barely had a start on last Wednesday.
I did finish it and it will soon be up for sale in my etsy shop.

I then moved on to getting the mitered borders on my log cabin top.  This is the first time I've tried mitered corners.  They didn't come out perfect, but they are alright.
I see so many others who hand their quilts outside in some way to model to them, so I decided to try it.
I hung it on the clotheline to snap this picture.

Today's plan is to take out my tables and get this baby sandwiched!  I really want to finish it before Monday and take it for show and share to quilt guild.


Here again are my lists:
UFO's:
Log Cabin quilt
Log Cabin wall hanging
Log cabin table runner
Rectangle quilt
2 rectangle table runners (one done)
challenge wall hanging
GoodNight Irene quilt/wall hanging
Quilt for sewing club at church
 (Finished) Applique Bunnies quilt
 (Finished) Penny Patch Quilt
Yo-Yo Table runner
Hexagon table topper
(Finished) Spoolin' Around
Emerald Island Fusique table runner

NewFO's
Sunflower table runner and matching placemats
Spiderweb quilt
Easter wall hanging
Cat wall hanging
Christmas bags (total of at least 25)
Braid table runner
Sunflower pillow
Christmas wall hanging
Five and Dime quilt

I've been watching videos on youtube so there is a new quilt on my New list.   I wonder if I will get to many more throughout the year?  How many more will I end up adding to my list throughout the year?

Squidoo Hopping 4/17/14



The Best Of lenses....something new and something that sounds pretty good.
I opened my dashboard yesterday and seen the blue icons.  I clicked then read the HQ post on it.

I have to say that I'm pretty well still in shock that they would pick any of my lenses to be best of.
However, the four that are chosen are all with the news lenslet formats.
Now I am wondering if they will all be just made with those?  I don't recall reading that, but have a feeling that's how it is.

I will share 2 of mine in the linky today.  If you have any, please do share those this week......along with any blog posts you may have done about squidoo.

I did update one lens this week.  I'm glad that I did.  It was a prompting by the owner of the the Online Craft Mall to get my act together with my items there.  Sometimes I need that push to get me around to the things that I have been putting off.

I hope to see lots of shares this week and I wish you all a Happy Easter coming up!

WIP Wednesday 4/16/14

Good Morning!

I think I have been pretty productive with my crafts this week.....but not so much anywhere else.

I took one evening and got out my cut up t-shirts and fabric strips etc.
I have them divided up to make rugs.
I know that in bags somewhere I have strips that I have yet to cut for rugs.....somewhere.....hhmmm.

Here is what I am working on now.  It's a rug with wider strips of t-shirts:




I finished up the set of 6 hexagon flowers.
They are now listed for sale as a set in my Etsy Shop.
I also worked on my items in the Online Craft Mall.   I updated items....took out a couple of things that I don't make anymore, and added a few things.  I added the hexagon flowers in sets of 6.  I will continue to work on the hexagon flowers here and there.  It will be years before I get them done  LOL
Last Friday evening was sit n' sew at the quilt shop.  
I took my Goodnight Irene blocks to work on.   I didn't get near as far as I thought I could!
I wanted to show a picture, just to 'prove' that I really am working on it.
You can click the button on the right for more information on the project.
I am behind.  I should be getting row 4 put on to the quilt this month.  I'm still building the blocks for rows 3 and 4.

Now let's get to the UFO's and NewFO's.   You can click the button to the right to also find out about this challenge.  
I've not even put up a finished post yet to link up with the challenge.
The rugs I am making are not on this list as I only list sewing projects.
Plus, I have added some things to the list since I made the list at the first of the year.
Plus, there are still a few projects in my craft room that didn't make the list!
Maybe some day I will actually get it together.

UFO's:
Log Cabin quilt
Log Cabin wall hanging
Log cabin table runner
Rectangle quilt
2 rectangle table runners (one done)
challenge wall hanging
GoodNight Irene quilt/wall hanging
Quilt for sewing club at church

Frugal Friday With Marsha 4/11/14



It's garden time!
I am ready to get my gardening on.
This year I am going to try  something different......again.  I bought 3 raised bed things from my cousin last year.  One I did use to surround a compost pile, but I will plant something in it.

I'm waiting for my paycheck in today's mail to buy good soil to mix with the compost piles (even though they really didn't compost).
I have bought the black netting to lay in the bottom of each of the boxes.
I also bought some other supplies for a couple of plant food recipes that I want to try.

Here are the links to the 2 recipes that I am going to make:

Banana Peel Plant Fertilizer Spray

Ways To Stretch A Dollar: Homemade Liquid Miracle Grow Concentrate For $0.35 A Container! 

I only have a set amount of money to spend on dirt and seeds, and plants so wish me luck that I can get a good garden going this year!

My friend paid for an ebook up Growing and Up Garden.  I read it out loud to my daughter, counting it for science in our homeschooling.  I learned more about composting so I hope I can be more successful with that this year.
I am going to turn on youtube with her and watch videos too.
This makes 3 years in a row that my compost pile didn't compost and I really don't know what I am doing wrong.

Our dirt in our yard is just not good.  That is why I am going to buy dirt to fill the raised beds.  I know it won't be too cheap, but I'm hoping I will then be able to just amend that from year to year after this year.

Do you have any gardening tips?   Link up anything frugal, money saving etc, even if it doesn't have to do with gardening!

Squidoo Hopping 4/10/14



Happy Thursday!
I hope Spring is upon you now and no more snow!
Here in Kansas today it's the usual windy Spring Day out.

I made a sale this past week.  Woo hoo!  I don't get those often in my lenses.
Payday is right around the corner next week too.
I'm enjoying the Giant Squids google+ group tremendously......I just need to get busy updating and building so that I can do more listing.
I'm only 186 pts away from finally reaching level 70....working towards that level 75.

How is squidoo going for you?

WIP Wednesday 4/9/14

I did make some progress this past week.
When I ran my mom around town on her payday I worked on putting more yo-yo's together on my table runner.
I got 2+ more rows on to it.  I'm thinking I may stop soon and have it only in the center of the coffee table.  Hubby keeps his laptop on one end of the table and it would be smashing down the yo-yo's.
Yesterday was sewing club at church.  I put 2 more rows together and on the quilt I am making there.
My once a month project, but I should be able to finish it next month.
I have 2 more rows to put on and then the binding.
If I hand sew the binding down that will take longer.  I haven't decided on that yet.
I've been working on and off the last week on the hexagon flowers.  I only completed 2 more flowers.  They do take longer to make than I anticipated, but I've also been on a big project of getting all of my coupons cut and into my binder as well.  There was a couple of days when I didn't work on the hexagons and worked strictly on the coupons.
I am taking my box of hexagons with me to my stitch group this afternoon.
I was given some fabric yesterday.  As I started to put it away in my craft room, I started looking through my project bags.  Oh gosh.....I had to add to my UFO and NewFO lists below as I had forgotten a few of my projects!!
I am totally serious when I say that I have enough materials to keep me busy for the next 10 years.  Imagining the things I can make that aren't already on these lists.

UFO's:
Log Cabin quilt
Log Cabin wall hanging
Log cabin table runner
Rectangle quilt
2 rectangle table runners (one done)
