Challenge/Battle/Alert: June Battle -Horror vs. Romance...ROMANCE
Team/Ninja: Commercial Free TV All-Stars
Project Geekdom (if any): Old Black and White Movies
Bonus Points: TV
Project Name: A Little Bit of Paris
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:

When I think of romance, I think of those old black and white movies of lovers in Paris.  It seems that one of the most romantic things is to have a little bite to eat with the Eiffel Tower in the background!

Well, a dear friend of mine loves Pari, and she is a hopeless romantic. *le sigh*...

She got a new job and needed something to catch the drips from her tea mug, so I decided to make her this Paris-inspired mug rug...and hopefully, she will find someone to share a cup of tea with here in the USA while dreaming of Paris! 'D

Wow!  I love all the action in this thread.  I'm hoping to post my research project tomorrow.  I pretty much finished it today, but was short one item, so I need to make a trip to the store before it's officially done!

Averia - that is a beautiful hoop!  I love the faint fireflies in the background on the fabric, too.

FreakieGeekie - it looks like you have the start of an awesome costume!

felicitybaby - oh my gosh, your little doll is so adorable!  So many tiny (literally!) details.  Smiley  And your research project turned out so completely awesome!

pinkleo - I really love the subtle colors in the yarn you used on your Prime Beanie.  What a great cause!

Smeddley - those droplets are so cute!  What a great cause, too!  And the little zipper dragons are equally adorable.  Grin  I especially love your anatomical heart!

smileyyogini - your carved stamp and applique hoop are awesome...I really have been meaning to try both techniques for a long time.  And your Ohm hoopla is gorgeous!

Bankeneko - even if it's not your thing, your bookmarks are still cool!  Your painting also turned out great.  And OMG those lanterns are AMAZING!

Naantje - what a pretty ring frame!  It's nice that you could incorporate and reuse some meaningful items.

ohiodiygirl - your paintings are awesome!  Now I need to keep a look out for Groupon classes around here!

Roke45 - what a beautiful drawing!

Abbeeroad - those patches are soooo cool!  Now I'm rethinking a number of mine.  Cheesy

Chuckiegirl - I like all the different embellishments you used on your card.  My anniversary inspired my romance project this month, too!  And I think it's awesome you chose music as your "waves" project!  I've been stuggling to figure that one out for myself. 

jenniegram- I LOVE your romance jewelry and your description.  Your shrines and art quilt are also amazingly awesome!  Your bracelets and Pacific Northwest necklace are really beautiful.

ysmeine - what pretty gloves!  And I love how you reused scrap to make that trellis!  How neat...and useful!  I especially love your TARDIS lights, but I'm super biased.  Grin

stefaniegk - That is such a genius idea for cards!  I love the quotes you chose.  And your little adipose is delightful!  How nice of you to make a friend for your LV.  Yay team!

craftADDchick - I love your shirt and description...very real world science!  Cheesy  Aren't Silhouettes amazing?!

plaidpineapple - that shirt is so pretty!  Hopefully you'll be able to adjust it so it works for you! 

PrettyPenguin - what a sweet necklace!  I love the paper plane charm.

alwaysinmyroom - how nice to spread your crafty love around to your friend!  Your mug rug turned out great...super cute fabric, too!  Go team!

Looks like Romance took over at the last minute by a landslide!  Darn it!  Oh well, but I do so love all the projects.  And, I super duper love the solar system mini quilt, and I need that blouse in a black floral print.  Smiley

Oh my gosh, so many new projects!

Love the blood droplets!

I think your heart is amazing, Smeddley.

Cool embroidery, Chuckiegirl! If you happen to get a closer pic, I'd love to see it.

Jennieingram, I cannot express how much I love that solar system quilt.

Those gloves are beautiful, ysmeine! Ooo, and TARDIS lights! I've just started watching Dr. Who (and getting over my immense childhood terror of the old show) so I can finally appreciate it more. How did yo make them?

Plaidpineapple, that shirt is lovely! I hope you guys come to an understanding. That's so hard.

Felicitybaby, your cookbook is fantastic! Oh, wow, that is cool. Haha, I love that it's to raise money for a trip to Disneyland, the "magic" kingdom Cheesy

Aw, what a cute little bot, LovelyMiss!

PrettyPenguin, I love that necklace! Where did you get that adorable paper place charm?
