I got this neato card from blupaisan. It glows in the dark! Sadly I could not get a photo of it glowing. But trust me, it's super cool.

It's painted on a piece of clear acetate and backed with black paper which gives the impression of night time. The kindling at the bottom are real sticks. Very clever idea!

Thanks blu!



managed to take a shot in the dark, no pun intended, of the fire card I made....

ChameleonHound chose my What Drives Ya Crazy theme and made this...
I can relate soooooo much!!!!
When you were so sure you had cut off enough thread to last the project, only to discover, at the very end, that you are gonna run out and not be able to tie the &$#@!!!  thing off.

I love this, thank you so much!!

N is for needlepainting!

Here is the lovely embroidery themed card that madcrafter created for me for this swap.
The background fabric is a subtle dyed hue and the floss is so thick, I keep squishing it with my finger. Not only lovely to look at, but fun tactile experience.
And a favorite flower of mine indeed.

thanks so much!!

10  Using mens ties to revamp a 1970s folding suitcase rack in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blupaisan on: September 19, 2018 12:08:29 PM

A dear friend owns an Adirondack summer home compete with one of those fabulous mens ties chairs in her guest bedroom. However, when guests do arrive (and they flock to her place each summer for the beauty) they end up putting their luggage on the bed. Not too convenient. So I decided to provide her with a rack to go along with the theme of her chair.

My friend George Albee made a luggage holder in 1970 as a gift for my parents. It has remained in the family and in spite of the fabric ribbons being busted for the past ten years, I rescued it from the tag sale my father held when he moved to assisted living last year.

What was originally on it..... gorgeous and retro but no way to salvage.


I have been collecting ties for a couple of years, hoping to one day make a tie chair of my own. Each time Goodwill has them for 99 cents, I gorge. So I was able to dig into my collection and come up with nine brown themed silk ones for this project. I did not want to use any bright or fun fabrics because I was afraid they might clash with the existing chair at my friend's house.

Since I have been ill all summer, my joints don't really work so I could not pick up my sewing machine in order to set it up and sew a bunch of ties together, which I originally pictured for this project. I opted to braid them instead and I think it will do. So I was able to hand sew in the few places that needed such a thing, which was only the edges.

I was even able to save all 18 little brad nails and use them in the original holes.

Here is what it looks like where it meets the wood. The one place that you still get the visual of a tie.


This is her Christmas gift but will be handed over next week before she leaves her summer home.
