Those are gorgeous!!  I'd hesitate to use 'em to make snowballs, they're way too pretty!

Those are adorable!  If the baby doesn't make 'em coo, the peadpods will!

Those are both beautiful!  You have the knack!  I like the Xmas one cause it's frivolous and fun, but the first is both beautiful and utilitarian.
495  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: First Quilt, Black and White on: January 25, 2008 11:58:00 AM
The quilt is beautiful, and is not a swastika - the swastika is the reverse of what you made.  As others noted, what you made is an acient symbol for balance or well-being.  (Sanskrit can be fun!)  The colors are striking and it'll be fun to see what your next quilt looks like!

If you still have the original framework that held the covers, you can just stretch fabric over it.  My Mom did that years ago with an old hi-fi cabinet and they looked great (it was a gorgeous plant stand in its second incarnation).  In her case she took the frames out, stretched fabric over, tacked it down in back, and put the frame back into the front of the speaker box.  It looked terrific - she used fabric that matched her drapes but you could use any fabric or even some kinds of paper.

If no frame, improvise - you may be able to wedge frabric into the corners of the box, or glue to the interior edge of the cabinet if the speaker's "guts" can be extracted without harming them.

This is a GREAT piece; I would also be inclined to re-do the kitchen around it!  Having said that, here are a couple of things that leap to mind:

1.  Get divided-pane or frosted-glass doors for the top (you could etch them yourself if you're handy).  Divided panes would probably be better if you want to keep the 50's look.
2.  Try repainting white, with bright red for the doors and interior - very 50's and easy to make your kitchen conform without going overboard on the red.
3.  Keep the hardware - it's terrific period stuff.  if you don't want the hardware, I'll take it gladly!

These are both beautiful!  Time to find a spot to paint - if you haven't picked up a brush in that long it's a genuine shame.

terrific bats!  Stellaluna was one of the few kids' books I couldn't pass along once my kids outgrew them - they're in the Special Kids Books box.

That's terrific, Cortney!  I like the foil!
