I am making altered Silver Spoons for my Spoonie friends
Here is my first attempt (the red one has a Carnelian in the bowl and clear microbead glitter set in diamond glaze... the bottom one may still get some kind of gemstones mounted in the bowl


(what is a spoonie?) http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory-written-by-christine-miserandino/
I have arthritis and Chronic fatigue Syndrome so this makes a lot of sense to me and I have many friends with similar issues.. I want them to always have "an extra spoon"

Awesome booth and wind socks, KLKing!

Cool altered spoons, trinalocakary!  I love the ones with things mounted in the bowl.

Congrats on the feature, AlishaMisha!

Love the windsocks and the display is so professional...what a great idea for folding chairs...

ChrisSews---you are such a prolific seamstress!  You sister is so lucky to have your help with her clothing--maternity clothes are so expensive for the short time they are worn!

bookstorebabe--I see the box of curtain rods in my garage turning into wands for the kids...thanks for the basic how-to!
I also loved how you did your collage...

Trina--those spoons look so glammed up!  A whole jar full of those would be so sparkly!

AlishaMisha--I saw that on UrbanThreads and forgot to mention it...I thought you knew!  It is one of my favorite sayings since I travel!

Thanks AlishaMisha Roll Eyes  Wink  After reading your last post, I had to go gander through the UrbanThreads Blog and now feel that I need to buy/make another bag so that I can embroider it!  I blame this completely on you.  Wink  

But its okay...  I'm thinking I may embroider the handle of the purse I currently own before I buy another bag.  Cheesy

SO - here's what just got added to my list!

36. Wedding Hoopla for my fraternity brothers.
37. Wedding Hoopla for my childhood penpal who now lives in France.
38. Embroider the handles of my purse.

trinalocakary, there's many a day I need an extra spoon just to get by. I love your spoons  Grin

KLKing, your booth looks so cool with the windsocks blowing in the breeze, they're awesome  Grin and your table and chair covers look the biz  Wink

smashu, I don't think we'll ever get tired of your projects  Kiss

I don't usually go anywhere without a crochet project so hubby knows I'm feeling bad when we're in the Drs and I'm just sitting waiting. My new meds are making me more tired than usual and just generally BLAH, I'm hoping that wears off when my body gets used to them, it's only been a week so far.

Made a collar for Nala to match the lead I made her last week. I don't remember if I added a pic of that or if I was waiting until I'd got both finished.



it's a little thing but it's better than nothing

KookalooStar, I like the dog collar and lead! Hope you feel better!
The spoons are great. Very pretty, and I love the story behind them.

You were a busy bee, jillybeans! 

Isn't it funny how a challenge like that really gets your creative juices flowing!?

I loved everything you did--especially with the tapes!
