1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Crazy Christmas Stocking on: July 21, 2008 10:25:32 AM
I have been making items for an upcoming Christmas in July show, including Christmas stockings. I have made quite a few, but this one is my favorite so far, so I had to post it. It was a lot of fun to make, used up some fabric scraps (one of my favorite things to do), and turned out super vibrant.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Journal/Notebook Case with Scrap Fabrics on: May 03, 2008 05:24:06 PM
I am an avid journal keeper, and have a handful of must-haves when I am on the road with my journal. This is what I came up with so that I can grab and go. The outside is made with scraps sewn to a sheet of interfacing, then covered with free-motion machine embroidery. The inside is cut from the drop cloth I have been using to cover my table when I paint. Fits an 8 1/2 x 11 inch notebook/sketchbook.



3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Scrap Fabric Note Cards (Updated 3/26) on: March 07, 2008 08:24:03 AM
I recently finished up a couple items using Shabby Chic styled fabrics and had quite a few super small scraps left. I layed them all out, with some extra thread, lace and ribbon, sewed it all down with watersoluable fabric, and then used the "scrap fabric" to make some gift card cases (posted over in the wallet section) and a bunch of these note cards. It was loads of fun, and used up most of those little pieces I just hate to throw away!

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilted/Fabric Collage on: October 23, 2007 08:34:47 AM
I made these recently for my mother, and her three sisters. They will be framed in shadow boxes ... the couple is my grandparents. Obviously, they are all very similiar. I just changed up the embellishing on each. If you want to see them larger, you can check out my flickr page, http://www.flickr.com/photos/12280719@N05/.

Two quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.


Congratulate yourself if you have done something strange and extravagant and broken the monotony of a decorous age.


I will come back and add the pic of the two together  Smiley.

*****8/24 - Haven't been able to post pic of them together because picture hosting has been down. I will as soon as it comes up again  Smiley *****

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Quilted ATC Display Wall Hanging (Pic Heavy) on: August 10, 2007 05:54:02 PM
Looking for an interesting way to display some ATCs, this is what I came up with. It started out as a white, cotton sheet (like for a bed). It holds 13 ATCs.



Closeups:





I didn't post with ATCs in the pockets because I don't want anyone I have swapped with to be offended by who I chose to put in there.
