Finished my Challah cover!  Please, let me know what you think. Do I need to add something else? On the edges maybe? Smiley

323  Re: Cape Hatteras (North Carolina) Lighthouse in CHALLENGE 25 ENTRIES by HSG on: March 05, 2008 05:51:53 PM
Thanks so much! Cheesy

I'm so glad to have some locals commenting on it and recognizing it- that's such an awesome compliment to me (and of course I love the compliments of those who aren't locals as well! Cheesy)

You're very welcome. And I absolutely new just what it was from the thumbnail on the front page. You did an amazing job capturing Hatteras.

This pic is from 1999 when they were moving it from the shoreline, but you can see you nailed it perfect!

324  Guitar Pincushion in Completed Projects by HSG on: March 05, 2008 05:45:01 PM
Participating in the Pincushion Swap #6, and wanted to make my partner something different. In looking through her information I found out she plays the guitar, so that is what I made her. Very pleased it turned out the way I pictured it. Smiley









Fun factoids:
Stands about 8 inches tall, took about 5 hours to create, used felt, foam, beads, thread and a piece of cardboard in the neck.

Thanks for checking it out, and comments, questions always welcome. Smiley

325  Great Paper Find! in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by HSG on: February 29, 2008 10:31:38 AM
Was cleaning and arranging my fabrics. They're stored in an antique hutch that belonged to my Dad as a boy, and it is lined with old newspapers.

The paper that was lining the drawers is from 1971, and had this little gem in it.


Don't know if anyone else recalls the "Love is..." series, but they were my favorites because they were so sweet and innocent. Heck they may even still be publishing it somewhere.

Now I've got to find someway to use this treasure. It measures 2 inches x 4 inches. Any ideas?

List me among those who have been busy, and under the weather this week. Oy Vey!  Roll Eyes

Did get some done on the Challah cover, but it won't make it to my Shabbos table this week. Maybe next...

Added to the upper right area some of the silver lines, and will add some of the pine needles with pearls. Hope you can see what I mean by the image.


C & C always welcome. Smiley

Here are some pictures of the mastersuite bath. All the rooms in my house are pretty much decorated, except my bed room and bath. Guess I figure no one sees the rooms except me and the hubby. Smiley

Here is the bath in all its plain-ness. *yawn*

Thank you sewknitter, and ladies the challah cover is even more lovely in person!

Ladies she did even more, and I completely missed them in my flurry of tissue opening. Smiley

sewknitter also made tatted earrings to match the necklace and bracelet. So pretty and delicate.

Warning: Awesomeness ahead!  Grin

Received my package from sewknitter today, and here it is in all it's awesomeness.
Overall swag:


She even hand stamped ALL the tissue paper! (Just learned a technique for using tissue on glass in mosaics...can you guess what will be done with this tissue?  Cool )


Beaded and tatted necklace, bracelet set! So pretty!


Belt/headband/scarf she made. So soft!


Her tatting CD, some beads and threads. She knew I wanted to learn to tat since I have my Grandmother's tatting tools.
Smiley


Crochet book, cause I also want to learn to crochet. This book has so much in it I could look at it for hours.


Last but certainly not least, a Challah cover!!! This is so pretty I cannot tell you how much I love it. Waiting for tomorrow night to use it!

sewknitter describes it as follows: "the center pattern is wheat, the braid is for the challah. The outside border is lace and points."


Thank you sewknitter! You're amazing!  Smiley
