73  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Really Big Pink Bag for Teeny Tiny Girl on: April 15, 2005 02:37:54 PM
In a few weeks some friends who are in the states for the summer on furlough will spend the night at our house. They have three little girls. I am making bags for the girls and their Mom and loading them with goodies. I've already the other three. This is for the youngest daughter (around eighteen months).

74  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Wolf thought he had it in the BAG after eating Red Riding Hood's Grandma on: April 15, 2005 02:35:19 PM
In a few weeks some friends who are in the states for the summer on furlough will spend the night at our house. They have three little girls. I am making bags for the girls and their Mom and loading them with goodies. I've already posted Mom and middle sis's bag. This is for the oldest daughter (around age eight). When she was quite young she read "Little Red Riding Hood" and later announced that God was dead. When asked why she said because he went into the woods and got ate by the wolf.







I feel so clever lining it with hound's tooth check.



I am disappointed with how I did the bag. Ah, well. Live and learn.

I do like the embroidery, the raw edges on the patch and the messy stitching I used to tack it down, as I think it adds an uncomfortable dynamic to the images. I also think much is explained when one realizes that Grandma was part of the 'red hat' club (LOL) Wink



The thoughts of children sometimes impress me deeply.

The Night (7/31/01)

Alice told her Mom and Dad
God dont love us no more
he went in the woods
got ate by a wolf.

I am wolf

black spots tunneling your eyes
when you stand-up too fast

a blast of 100 degree heat
with 98 percent humidity

a crows feather that falls
on the path you walk

I am Grandma

cutting a hole to crawl out
of the darkness through

throwing Grandpas headstone
into the wound

sewing it up

hoping it dies

Alice doesnt sleep at night
cause the woods are growing
under my bed.


75  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / dressing the refrigerator for spring - two quick fun picture frames on: April 14, 2005 01:18:37 PM
I am trying to clear out miscellaneous junk I've accumulated for projects. I bought a couple of these awesome frames for a dollar from Wal-Mart (simple plastic frames with nice beveled glass that just pops out - - much nicer than they sound). I just glued some embellishments on them and some magnets on the back (noticed I didn't do such a great job with magnets as I can see one on the front of both - guess that is what happens when you are crafting and feeding the children breakfast at the same time).

I printed a couple of shots from my 640X480 camera for a fun slightly abstract feel and now my refrigerator is dressed up for spring...




76  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / M is for Mercy or perhaps it is Mickey Mouse... on: April 13, 2005 01:35:32 PM
In a few weeks some friends who are in the states for the summer on furlough will spend the night at our house. They have three little girls. I am making bags for the girls and their Mom and loading them with goodies. I've already posted Mom's bag. This is for the middle daughter (another M).

I now realize the overview shot is too far away:



I found this little button in my button jar and thought it was perfect:



And a look at the color scheme:

77  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Finally, after five years, I've replaced those ugly blinds... on: April 13, 2005 01:28:30 PM
of course, I had nobody to blame but myself. Gotta love fabric at a dollar a yard, this was quite inexpensive except for the rod.

Old blinds



We took of the bit of fabric that hid this when we moved in so then it was really ugly.



New curtains



Pretty finial

 
 

Love the texture of the fabric

 
 

Also made a curtain for the entry...

78  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Captain Morgan, retro-seventies, I need to lose weight - new clothes on: April 10, 2005 03:57:51 AM
Believe it or not this started as an attempt to replicate something from anthropologie - it took a detour and ended up look like pirate pants and a bustier - something from the seventies. I learned two big things from this sewing project. I need to learn how to modify patterns so that I don't have a problem with gapping necklines (I have problems with store bought clothes too) and I need to lose weight - I can avoid looking at my body most of the time but when you sew for yourself you get a good look at how big you are!! Ugh!!



Couldn't resist drawing a moustache since I look so ugly anyhow


a look at the colors



the moth I embroidered on it

 
 

79  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Mommy Thumb - deQuervain's tendinitis on: April 10, 2005 03:45:37 AM
It's a rare-sounding ailment, but as many as 50 percent of new moms develop it: deQuervain's tendinitis, an irritation of the thumb tendons that causes anything from mild soreness to an intense pain that radiates up to the wrists.

--Do any of you have this? Does it ever interfere with your crafting? And what are the best things you've discovered for relieving it?
80  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / embroidery on a store bought jacket on: April 10, 2005 03:23:45 AM
I recently picked up a unlined black blazer made of cotton twill for about seven bucks at Kohl's. I am planning on embroidering it. However, I am wondering, when I am finished, do I need to line the jacket somehow to protect the embroidery?
