Holy crap, I got another one done! (And another, but that's for tomorrow!) I wonder if I can get yet another one done for five daily posts in a row?

So: Wyoming! The biggie here is Yellowstone National Park and Old Faithful Geyser. I'm very proud of how the geyser came out.

I got back to the State Blocks this weekend and have completed two more! I'll post the second one tomorrow, but here's the first.

As a recap, because it might well be more than a year since I last posted about these, I'm making an applique quilted state block for every state Toly and I have visited or lived in. (Airports don't count, so while I've traveled through Seattle, I don't count the state of Washington.)

At the end of all this I'll make them into a mchuge wall hanging and it'll be at least 30-some states, last I checked. Whew. Check the tag for the other ones.

So today, here's Montana!

Another Alaska row

Today I got another one of my to-do list completed. Yes, in one day, mostly because it's one of those Alaska kits that has everything already done and it's all cut-and-iron applique.

But it sure looks nice, I have to admit, and at the rate I'm doing, I'll be able to do an Alaska wall hanging.

Crafts for 2018, update

Yesterday I actually completed a craft thing! Yes! And hope to get more done in the near future. Anyway, this is a kit I picked up a few years ago and have finally finished. Backyard Birds:



(click the thumbnail to get to the big pic)

Mom wants to frame it instead of make it a wall hanging, which I get. It isn't fully quilted yet so that's possible. Size might be interesting though, we might have to get a custom piece of glass cut; and buy individual pieces of frame to assemble. But it's doable.

Meanwhile that actually completes one of my "to do" list for 2018! And gives me a good reason to review the list and see what I could work on.



No. 12 is in process, of course, I've posted about that. I suppose next would be the Alaska blocks just to get them done, because they're kits and easier to do. OR work on the state blocks because I now have a lot of fabric with fusible web already attached and all I have to do is cut out pieces.

B&N's captains scuttle the ship

Barnes & Noble just laid off thousands of workers without warning, all the long-term, full time employees, and honestly this is depressing but I had to share it. :(

Free Overwatch Weekend coming up

February 16 - 19 Free Overwatch Weekend! If you want to try it, be sure to get a Blizzard.net account and download those patches ahead of time.

"Blizzard has a habit of seasonally opening up its hero shooter Overwatch for everyone to try every couple months, typically just after it announces a new hero, event or map. Fittingly, the publisher announced that new PC, PS4 and Xbox One players can try out the game for free next weekend to get a taste of the just-launched Lunar New Year seasonal event.

In addition to snagging the event's temporarily-available skins, new players can try out the newly-tweaked Capture The Flag the Thailand-inspired map made for the mode. They'll also get to toy with the still-fresh amusement park-themed Blizzard World. Those who are coming back to Overwatch can scan the game's patch notes to skim hero changes (e.g. Junkrat and Mercy both got slight ability nerfs on January 30th).

And finally, as with every free weekend, any skins or other items unlocked will carry over if a new player purchases the game.The gratis play runs from February 16th to 19th."

It's been a while since I did any quilting or worked on the world map. I didn't quilt much in January because I spent a lot of time upstairs in the office, but I hope as the days get longer that I'll have more time in the afternoons with sunlight. The world map needed some more fabrics to show up so I could fill in small countries without doubling up too much.

But now I'm almost done with the new world! Some caveats:
- Caribbean still needs work, lots of little tiny islands etc.
- Hawaii needs to be added
- Canada is incomplete (lots of island pieces again)
- Greenland

That said, it's a lot more finished than it was a month (six weeks?) ago.

Once the above is complete (esp Greenland) then I can start moving east across the Atlantic to Iceland and then Europe. That's when I'll really need a lot of fabrics, though, to avoid doubles.

Today's Postcrossing quilt fabric

I'll have to figure out a way to use the whole cow somehow. Need to get out the map and see which country is big enough.

Postcrossing quilt update

Two fabrics - not sure if I posted about these lately - arrived for the Postcrossing quilt. (Yay!)

Pictures under the cutCollapse )

Fabric listing main post: https://laridian.dreamwidth.org/2767863.html

I now have 4 fabrics stockpiled. I still have a lot of little countries in Central America to take care of, though, so I need to get some more.

Postcrossing anniversary

Today is my 3 year anniversary with Postcrossing. I was really hoping to hit 1000 sent postcards, but though I did my best, I'm still dependent on the mail (and have a bunch of expired postcards that either never arrived, or the recipients didn't register them, which is a drag).

But still!



I have 3 fabrics ready to go on the Postcrossing quilt, but I need some more before I can really get going; I'm at Central America and there's a lot of small countries there.
