31  Re: 2014 Affirmation Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Helena Puck on: February 27, 2014 10:15:23 AM
I just receive a WONDERFULLY AWESOME package from Melissa, honeyd. She knew exactly what I needed today. I was in the middle of grading and completing a project when the mail came but I would let myself open it until I was done.

And when I opened it, I literally cried. She Stitched my all-time favorite Shel Silverstein quote on canvas. Here it is. And, I really did cry when I saw it. It means so much to me. No fairy godmother or wishing on a star for me, I did things my da&n self. Definitely an affirming quotation!

For some reason, the photo shifted when I uploaded it. So everyone, tilt your head or turn your screen. It's an awesome work of art Smiley

Here is a close up of that amazing stitching.

And to top it off, she included a washi tape journal (perfect for this crazy list writer) and a washi mini print with the words, "Bee You" with a nifty Oz card. I'm going to hang it next to my Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland birthday card.

Thank you again honeyd!!

32  Cross stitch Hoops (3 pictures) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: February 24, 2014 01:01:10 PM
Recently, I made a few cross stitch projects for my swap partners.

I made this little Dorothy. The design in by Brooke's Books Publishing. I love the design, especially the intricate way the shades of blue simulated plaid. I hope to complete the whole Oz series for myself.

I think my favorite is the silver shoes. I ended up adding some more backstitching because I used white aida that blended with the sleeves and apron.

For the Box of Sunshine swap, I stitched Funshine Bear because we both love 80's cartoons and a Mill Hill Sun ornament.

This was my first attempt at beadwork. I had to customize the pattern because I struggled with the bead colors which makes it one of a kind.

35  Wesley the Owl in Needlework: Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: January 28, 2014 07:19:23 PM
Here is one of the projects I made while I've been snowed in. I've been anxious about sharing this little owl I stitched for my swap partner in the OT Literary Thing swap. He was inspired by Wesley, the Owl.

I stitched him on perforated paper, added seed beads for eyes, and added a pin backing.

37  Santa and Noel Claus in Needlework: Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: January 09, 2014 07:59:32 AM

I named Mrs. Claus Noel based on some of the cheesy Hallmark and ION shows that I have been watching during Christmas break. She needed a name too.
After Christmas, my husband pointed out that I rarely stitch things for myself even though stitching makes me really happy. So, I raided the huge $5 box of kits and supplies he picked up for me at the local thrift shop months ago, a wonderful find I might add.

I made this neat little design just for myself. The kit also included an adhesive mat and a plastic red frame. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I ended up not stitching Happy Holidays because it distracted from the focus of the kiss.

The design is called Happy Holidays by Pat Maloney Bord, published by The New Berlin Company in 1992. Just love thrift store finds!

Now, I hope the completion of this design with inspire me to finish the Dimensions Santa before next Christmas. I'm hoping to give "Santa's Secret" as a gift next year.

And here is the happy recipient of the crochet Percy by Saintcady.

He had it under his arm all day and my sister took more pictures of him playing on his ipad while hugging his train.

Thanks again Saintcady for the lego mold. I made some adorable plaster lego minifigs. My little one is ecstatic about making and painting his own.

40  Recycled Christmas Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Helena Puck on: January 05, 2014 04:07:08 PM
I started playing with my gingerbread punch and washi tape and came up with some simple cards for next year. I'm hoping to send the people's cards back to them in gingerbread form Smiley

Also, with my huge collection of remaining gingerbread shapes, I made gingerbread garland by sewing the gingerbread shapes with my sewing machine.
