    16 projects in 16 in memory of Soulie

    16 projects in 16 in memory of Soulie 28th Dec 15 at 7:29 PM
    I started a 14 in 14 thread in memory of Soulie who was a dearly loved member of the MSE crafting community. It was very popular so I repeated it in 2015 and now by request here is the 2016 version.

    There aren't really any rules other than the general MSE ones such as "be nice"

    The guidelines are:
    • any and all crafts are welcome; the diversity is a large part of the appeal of the thread
    • 16 is a suggested target not an absolute goal, do more or less as suits you
    • we love photos though they aren't compulsory
    • there is a Flickr group for photos. you have to be a member but there are a few administrators so requests are usually approved quite quickly https://www.flickr.com/groups/2489278@N21/?added=4
    • if you've used a pattern it's nice to credit the designer or magazine but please don't ask members to contravene copyright by asking for copies
    • all MSEers love freebies so share links to these if you can
    • sharing tips and hints is great as we all love to learn
    • enjoy!

    Aw, I love your owls, owl fan, every one, That tea cosy is amazing!

    I was lucky, chemo didn't make me sick, but I did lose my appetite and stuff tasted weird! I was ultra tired for months, then I got up one day and I was fine again. Odd, but wonderful!

    Another project done - fat cat mat for our recently adopted moggie. I'm ashamed to say it's a bit poorly finished. I thought I'd try a different way of adding the binding and it was a disaster. Used an embroidery stitch, so unpicking would not be fun! I could do another binding over the top, or cut off inside and rebind. But no, I won't. Lesson learned - and I'm sure Star won't be too critical!

    Love everyone's makes.
    The photos are always inspiring.
    I've crocheted a blanket and made a valance sheet for our bed out of 3 wrong sized sheets.
    Must get some more crafting done

    Owlfan I hope you are as well as can be and the treatment isn't making you feel too poorly.

    September progress on temperature blanket.

    September by Bobbie Doctor, on Flickr

    Highest noon temperature was 20C, lowest was 13C. Bands are 13C-16C and 17C-20C, so two colours only, again; it is definitely getting cooler.

    Loving the card and the temperature blanket update.
    Hope everyone is well
    I've made a few instant smoothie hats, some scbu hats, made a start on mini stockings for school and made a box frame thing for ds1 to keep his concert tickets in as he like to hang on to them as mementos. So used up some wool, wrapping paper and scrabble tiles from the stash.

    Another creation, this one was for Freegle who asked me for a mascot. It's loosely based on a Womble, because Freegle is about recycling and reuse free in the community.

    Thanks for your support. I am feeling very good these days on chemo, even with stomach cancer which I supposed to be a bad one, but I am lucky so far. Just lost all my hair but now I have a great wig.

    Owl fan I love your freegle womble, and must say the picture of you is lovely. You look so happy and full of positivity.

    I've made a blanket and a box frame for ds1 for Christmas to keep concert tickets etc in. Currently working on some little Christmas bits for school. I must go through my list and see roughly where I am.

    Hope everyone is well.

    your little Freegle is lovely; that's a good name for a womble too. You are looking fantastic; I don't think I looked as well. But I did love my wig - wash and wear hair! Choosing one was great fun too.

    Hi everyone I'm catching up as it's now half term. Owl fan I love the wig and glad to hear you are feeling well. You certainly look it. I love the owls. My class is named tawny owls and so far I've resisted collecting. I've lost my crafting mojo which is normal for the first half term! All I've done is a few rows of cross stitch. Hoping to have some finishes before we help DSS 1 move with DIL and baby grandson at the end of the week. Along with bulb planting and everything else on my list.
    Proud to be dealing with my debts! DF Nerd # 1475

    another project done (just in time) - Hallowe'en costumes

    Nexo Knight by Bobbie Doctor, on Flickr

    I'm sure this Nexo Knight costume will look better when it's on - it's based on a Lego character!

    Lovely cards greentiger and the blanket is coming on beautifully can't wait to see a photo of it completed at the end of the year so we can see all the colour changes.

    Green tiger I'm smitten by the blanket and like Mrs MP I can't wait to see it at the end of the year. Still lost my mojo, not even wielded a stitch (cross or other) or a wooden spoon. Except for stirring porridge! Hope you're continuing to craft in good health Owl fan xxx
