District 3 – Technology

And we have come to this month’s Hunger Games Districts series pattern. We are up to month 4 now which means we are at District 3, the home of Nuts and Volts.

This Pattern is slightly different from the previous in the series. the difference being it’s not only paper pieced. The wheels are done with applique. I haven’t done much applique as you can probaly see from the pic below. But it was the only way without going into some ridiculous AAAA pattern pieces :P

District 3 is 10″ and lives with the other Hunger Games Patterns on the Sci-Fi and Fantasy page

There’s no place like Pony Land

I’m making presents for my cousins that live in Finland. They are coming to visit this summer. They are each getting a pillow with something I know they like. The girl I know likes horses, but to put a little fandom in it I made a My little pony :)
(I just hope they don’t read my blog as that would ruin the surprise. But I don’t think they know about it)

My Little Pony
My Little Pony is 10″ and is on the Cartoons and Comics Page
I still have to embroider the nose and mouth on him.

I’ve also been working on my 4/12 for 2012. I only have to finish the binding and then it’s on to 5/12. But unfortunately I won’t be able to show it to you for a while since it’s a secret :P

anyways, Happy sewing :D

be sure to come back next week for a new fandom pattern

On to today’s pattern :) it is time for a new Hunger Games pattern

Buzy week and some Mythbusters :P

So this week has been a little mad for me. Since last Friday when my blog hop post went up (you still have until tomorrow to comment on the blog hop post to be entered to win).
I spent Easter weekend at the farm. Mostly I was rereading the Hunger Games series and doing some embroidery on my TABABOM which is now ready to be quilted :D. and didn’t get home until late on Monday.
Tuesday I had a dentist appointment at 9:00 and was pretty loopy for the rest of the day (I hate going to the dentist).
Yesterday (Wednesday) was my birthday and my mum took me fabric shopping, “you can have anything you want” I went a little crazy :D
Then today my gerbil passed away (at least he waited until after my birthday) and we went to the farm, mostly for a place to keep the cage which is actually a fish tank. But the weather was lovely and I spent the day in the sandbox with Tristan and the dogs (my sisters Papillion and my aunt’s Icelandic sheep dog)

Anyways I didn’t have time to test my new pattern that really doesn’t need testing since it’s super simple. It’s inspired by the Mythbusters. I really wanted to make a Mythbusters pattern but what really represents them? Well this is the first thing that sprang to mind :P

This would be a roll of Duckt Tape and it’s 5″

I’ll see you guys tomorrow with the 2 winners
