Quilty Box: Classic Box Review – January 2019

Classic Quilty Box

January 2019

As a crafter, one of the crafts that is in my bag-of-tricks is sewing. I love the idea that I can take a flat piece of fabric and within a couple of hours, create something useful for human, k-9 or feline.

When I received the January 2019 Quilty Box I immediately had ideas on how to put the enclosed Tie One On-Fabric into my craft to-do pile. Continue reading

Completed 5d Project: Yarn Cat

The Latest Finish – Yarn Cat – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

Being a cat person and a crafty person when I saw this adorable cat in a suitcase of yarn I knew it would be the perfect addition to my future craft room.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this dragon, and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 60cm by 45cm.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?

Completed 5d Project: Titanic

The Latest Finish – Titanic – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.
Ever since the movie Titanic came out I have been fascinated by the lore and history of this mighty “unsinkable” ship. When I saw this Titanic Diamond Painting I knew I had to create it.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this project and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 50 by 60 cm. The plan is to find a suitable frame and put where I watch movies, and read.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?

Completed 5d Project: Mythical Dragon

The Latest Finish – Mythical Dragon – Diamond Painting

This diamond painting was sent to me by Needleart World, and may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

There is nothing about this Mythical Dragon that I do not like – the colors, the ball, the whole thing is just spectacular. I originally started this when I was watching Game of Thrones, and then my father got sick and while I was close to finishing, it just did not happen.

This past week I decided to take the couple hours left and complete this dragon, and I am so glad I did. This is a big diamond painting measuring in at a large 22.5 inches X 19. 25 inches. The plan is to find a suitable frame and put where I watch movies, it seems very mythical and movie like to me.

Now, as always, what color frame should I use?

Completed 5d Project: Chipmunks Eating Corn

The Latest Finish – Chipmunks Eating Corn – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

 

When I saw these Chipmunks Eating Corn I immediately thought it would be so cute in a dining area, or kitchen. I will say that the level of detail on the corn completely surprised me. This has 44 colors, and over 46,400 beads, making this very detailed. This  measures 27 inches x 19 inches (or 70cm x 50cm) and is the perfect size with the detail included.

The colors and the detail reminds me of summer corn, and this was just a lot of fun to work on. I started it November 23rd, and worked on it through the Thanksgiving weekend, then I worked on it a bit less while i focused on other projects, but began this past week, and managed to finish it one month from when I started it making the completion date 12/23/2018.

Now what color frame should I use?

Completed 5d Project: Girl in the Pink Dress

The Latest Finish – Pink Dress Girl  – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

There was something childlike when I saw this, that i knew it would go well in a guest room. When I saw this Girl in the Pink Dress and the pink in the dress I had to complete her. I had started this a couple months ago and just picked her up this weekend for the finish. This  measures a nice 16 by 20, with little extra for matting.

Completed 5d Project: Colorful Owl

The Latest Finish – Colorful Owl  – Diamond Painting

This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.

I have always been attracted to color and so when I saw this Colorful Owl and his myriad of colors, I knew I had to complete him. I had started this a couple months ago and just picked him up this weekend for the finish. While it was simpler than many of my other diamond painting undertakings, it was a nice to be done so quick. This is smaller and measures a nice 8 by 10, with some room in the blue for framing and matting.

Quilty Box: Classic Box Review – November 2018

Classic Quilty Box – November 2018 Review 

As a crafter, one of the crafts that is in my bag-of-tricks is sewing. I love the idea that I can take a flat piece of fabric and within a couple of hours, create something useful for human, k-9 or feline.

When I received the November 2018 Quilty Box I was pleasantly taken back to the beach with the Zuma Fabric Bundle and the bright colors.  Continue reading
