1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Le Woof (Urban Threads) on: September 19, 2012 07:49:03 PM
So it's not quite 100% yet, but I couldn't resist!  My sister loves bulldogs, and happens to be living in France right now, where she finds things need not to be taken so seriously (often!).

This will be her holiday present!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Haybale Mosaic on: July 02, 2012 11:11:07 AM
I just spent a week at the John C. Campbell Folk Art School (folkschool.org) and this is what I learned to make in class!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first 241! on: July 31, 2011 09:15:54 PM
After seeing Wyrilico's and Twinma's 241 totes, I had to make my own!  I'm not an experienced purse maker (though I love the geometry of Eloleo's foldable grocery bag.

(Excuse my halloween wig; it resides on my dummy.)

I followed the pattern, except for the side pockets, which came from from of that cute, pregathered fabric that is sold for sundresses.  (You know, make a tube, add straps and you're done-- that stuff!)  The embellishments are 'quilter's iron-on quick bias tape' and fall leaf buttons.

I swear, these 241's are addictive!  I'm already working on one for me, and have pieces cut out to do a third for my mom's birthday.   Grin  Thanks for looking!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Butterfly Swap Gallery on: June 30, 2010 10:05:34 AM
MargieJ asked me to get this started  (I hope that's okay!)-- she got her package in the mail today, but had let me know ahead of time that she needed her partner to post pics for her.  So, since I'm no longer ruining the surprise, on to the show!


Here's what I started with after reading MargieJ's questionnaire and going to Michaels.

In progress!

Nearly final!  I promise I did not send it to her with the clamps still on it! 

I also put in some tiny butterfly magnets from MakitBakit and the pink butterfly sticker I didn't put on the frame, as it just seemed like it should be with its friends!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / My 2010 Garden Progress on: June 10, 2010 11:16:43 AM
Hi, everyone!  I'm new to the board; thanks for reading my post.  Smiley

I changed jobs this year, moved, and ended up in a nice townhome with a bonus of raised beds in the back.  On the downside, no one had done anything with them for about 10+ years.

Here's what it looked like before:


Now, that's after I did prune back the tree and tie back the rosebush and try to get it woven into the old vine growth on the fence.  (Don't mind the fluffernutter there.)

I decided to go mostly for perennials, and to start a lot from seed (with the exception of lavender, because I've had no luck trying to grow it from seed).  I've put in Lavender, pansies (school fundraiser), 2 colors of Butterflyweed, Rosemary, Thyme, Greek Oregano, Zaarar marjoram, Love-lies-bleeding, Coleus, and 3 colors of Echinacea.  I might have gone a little crazy when I saw how much more I could get by buying seeds.  It totally makes up for not seeing everything bloom this season.

In the veggie area, I've put in Spoon Tomatoes (pea-sized), Brussels sprouts, and Calendula.  Here's what it looks like now:



Thanks for looking!
6  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / Memphis Folks? How about a Crafts Night Out?! on: June 07, 2010 02:16:16 PM
Anybody for joining a crafter group in the Memphis area? 

I know there's a Knit Mafia Group (and I happen to know they meet at Republic Coffee on Tuesdays at 6:30pm), but they claim to be closed to new members. 

What about a general crafting group? 

What about picking a Friday or Saturday of the month (like the last Fri/Sat of the month) to meet?  Like a Crafts Night Out?!

While I'm not opposed to midtown, what about someplace like the Borders at Pop & Kirby, with the convenient Swanky's taco shop next door (beer, margeritas!)?
