62  tiny cloud needle book in Needlework: Completed Projects by ritapizza on: February 10, 2008 01:56:37 PM
I used to carry my needles around in a simple rectangle of felt folded in half like my mother always did. Overtime, I started adding other sewing essentials to the felt like snaps, pins and safety pins until it became a crowded mess! I was fed up so I put together this teeny needle book for my sanity and daily dose of cute! It's about 2" by 2 1/2" ~

inspired by merwing's lovely embroidery <3

my crafty friend saw it and wanted to steal it, but it's mine!
I'll be making one for her soon, with a snowman cuz she loves snowmen!

63  baby boy shower on thanksgiving~ in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by ritapizza on: November 27, 2007 04:21:06 PM
My aunt asked me to host a baby shower for my cousin's baby to be! It had to be the same day as Thanksgiving since all our family was already in the same house at the same time, so it was one busy day!

I made soft blankets and baby clothes and bibs and booties and toys and party favors and used them all for the centerpiece and decorations.

some of the embroidered onsies~

a ripple blanket~

It was also the top layer of the "cake."

As the activity, I asked our family to draw on quilt blocks that I'll later embroider or applique and piece together into a baby quilt! The mother's parents wrote some beautiful chinese characters too.  This one means "love."

Everything went really well and it was lots of fun!
I drew some inspiration from this forum, so thank you!

64  Seasons of Change in CHALLENGE 22 ENTRIES by ritapizza on: November 06, 2007 12:30:41 AM
Autumn leaves are most lovely this time of year and while it is fun to jump around and see the many colors of the leaves as they fall, I'm always reminded that the beauty does not last and you are always left empty and wanting.  But emptiness does not last but is there only long enough for us to feel the loss and miss nature's wonders and wait for the seasons to change.  We crave for more when we have nothing, and we crave for simplicity when we overflow with goodness.

Please enjoy...


abundance and joy


emptiness and despair

This is my first big project and I had no idea how long it would take me.  I really challenged myself and my skills for this challenge, and I thank Craftster for the opportunity and inspiration. ^_^

(And sorry, for my first post, it took me some time to figure out the formatting)
