1  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Art Detour this weekend on: March 23, 2006 11:46:55 AM
I didn't want anyone to forget Art Detour. I will be there Friday nite-- don't know where yet but I usually start at the central library where the shuttles run. Maybe I'll see some of you out and about. The details...

The artlink Art Detour turns 18! This three day art event will take place March 24, 25, and 26. Art Detour hours are 6 - 11pm on Friday the 24th, 12 noon - 8pm on Saturday the 25th and 12 noon - 6pm on Sunday the 26th. Reported to be the largest, most well attended art event of its kind in the country, Art Detour had its start as an artists open studio tour in the spring of 1989. This is the event that started it all! The artists studios are still a big part of Art Detour; many of the studios are only open to the public for this event.

also look in todays (Thursday) insert in the Republic for all the event listings (I think it's called "The Rep")

12x12 cardboard backing support with junk mail, catalogs, teledata wire, fabric samples, drink  box package and piece of tape measure I found in the street.







I had a lot of fun just in the process of assembling this. Based on a log cabin quilt block with a star.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first bag hobo-jordy type on: November 29, 2004 12:03:43 PM
My first bag  is a patchwork flap hobo-jordy type bag...


Lining and flap lining...


I took the color inspiration from the craftster who recently posted her red heart applique bag with leopard lining- I loved that combo. I added the flap after I used it for a couple of days. I still haven't found a button to close it and the button strap is now on the wrong edge after I added the flap! I'm also thinking of adding a tassle with a charm on the flap to keep it weighted down and maybe adding some painted accents to the red body of the bag.

Constructive critisism needed... I'm going to start on another bag tonite.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Popcorn Granny afghan completed! on: October 29, 2004 05:57:45 PM
This is my first full size afghan that i've completed from the book Romantic Crochet, i think (it is at the library). Except I didn't use the same boring colors from the pattern. I still have to tuck in some of the tails and start a border- but it is usable, FINALLY.  Note: the colors are better in person- especially the yellow - it doesn't photograph well. I've done one other baby size afghan for my sis in law from the yarn  package wrapper that also took me forever.

full afghan (except for top row that is over the fence when i hung it up)


close up



I'm going to try a plastic bag handbag next after I finish a scarf and some holiday snowflakes for cards.
