I think it might be, it's in storage at the moment.  My Grandma had one like it too!  I found my copy at Powell's books in Portland.   Cheesy

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding bookmarks - felt - stitched on: May 06, 2015 08:07:16 PM
My friend was married almost 2 years ago, I took pictures of the project but life turned upside down and this is the first that I have sat down, logged into Craftster to share.  My friend Kristy asked me to make bookmarks for her wedding, I accepted and stitched and cut till my fingers wanted to fall off.  But the results were wonderful and I think it's a great idea to share.

The project was really very simple but the quantity that I made was labor intensive.

We chose lazy daisy and french knots with blanket stitch connecting the hearts and as edging.

I made around 130 of these bad boys.

I know she loved them and so did everyone that took one home.

I think some sheet covered furniture adds a nice abandoned feeling.  Smiley

Mrs.Kitty, I agree that moving the A would look better but I don't think stick and until are that bad.

Did you try the woolight idea yet and, if so, did it work?

Can't wait to see more of this!

I will be but I've not gotten that far, my Grandmother passed away this last week so my world stopped.  It's okay, it was just her time. 
I only had just gotten started on picking out the A.  I promise to share pics once I get back to it and especially once I know if the pencil comes out with the woolight. 
On a slightly lighter note I did receive a camera for my birthday on Saturday so yay for the ability to take nice progress pictures.  You can't tell but the idea I have is much more elaborate that what it looks like here... going to be great.

Well that's good, okay, so there is a whole story that goes along with this project/idea but basically my hubby is silly and likes to poke at me, figuratively and literally.  I've a whole plan for this project and only some of actually down on paper or in my blog (wink, wink).  But I can share some pics that I took today.  This is so far done on 22 count Aida fabric (teeny tiny), I'll be mounting it on a natural linen for the second border of silliness.

I'm feeling that I need to pull out the A and re-space it, it's just too large a project to leave it be.  As for the other words I'm going to live with stick and until being that close, it's just too much work to re-do. 

So here is the thing, I used #2 pencil to draft out my letters... what do you think, woolight and a soft toothbrush to remove any left over marks?  I'll have to figure it out if I want to pick out the A and re-stitch it in.

Okay, I have a question about the Big Project stitch a-long.  I've started a new project, it's large and complicated and bringing in multiple techniques and even duel fabrics.  It's not a kit or even a predetermined design, it's all in my head and some of it is forming as I go.  When do we consider something relevant for this thread and when do we not?  I'll be getting some progress pics but before I do and before I post them here I wanted to weigh in and see if there were any thoughts or objections to a purely self created big project. I love reading this thread and seeing the works that all of you spend so much time stitching on so I value your thoughts on this subject.  I would doubt that there would be issue but thought it better to check with you all about Craftster online posting etiquette before I make a social faux pas.
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A Painted gift on: May 03, 2012 07:39:49 PM
Painting is a medium that I've missed.  I had an opportunity to make something for a Friend and Co-worker's birthday and it wasn't long before this idea bloomed in my mind.  She Loves Micky and Minnie... I love to paint.  So here we go.

It is little, only 8 x 10 ish. Acrylic on canvas board and fun and fulfilling.  It was a quick project too, took just about 20 hours (over the weekend) and several movies later I decided it was done.

Now that I've found the paint box we will see what else comes out of this brain.
