I saw this idea somewhere around the blogosphere and put together one of my own. I would link up and give credit to the person who thought it up but I've lost track of where I tripped over it. See it here. )

I have several watches I want to dismantle for parts to use in steampunk jewelry. I have looked for opening slots etc. and have not found anything. Any suggestions on how to open them up, short of a hammer??? Help!

Edited to add:  Just returned from a little buy-gold shop that also does watch/clock repair.  earthkat got it exactly right. The guy took a box-cutter and popped them all open. He was very bemused about it for some reason. *grin*
Thanks to everyone for all the help!

I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant with my second child (and on bed rest right now-UGH). I wanted to make a quilt for the new baby (Ramona) and one for my 3 year old son Marshall to be able to share with his new baby sister. Thankfully, I just finished up the second quilt this weekend before being ordered on bed rest for the next three weeks on Monday!

The first one I made was the Marshall quilt. I wanted to try a chevron pattern, since I came across so many of those on pinterest while searching for quilt ideas. I really love the look of them, but couldn't find an exact pattern to go by. I ended up figuring out the process myself and making it up as I went along. I'm very pleased with it!

Ramona's quilt is much smaller, more of a newborn/receiving blanket size that's perfect for tucking into a car seat or draping around us while breastfeeding. I went with a very basic patchwork in pinks, reds, corals, and greys:

All photos link back to either my personal flickr or the companion flickr group to my community [livejournal.com profile] sewalong. There are many more photos there, if you'd like a detailed description of how I made either of the quilts. [livejournal.com profile] sewalong also contains detailed tutorials of my process and a supply list, if anyone is interested. This is in no way intended to be a way of trolling for new members, by the way! I just want to share the projects, if anyone is interested in trying them. My tutorials are all public, so you don't have to join to see them.
