1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Needlebook WIP and where do I find small/trim/flowers/leaf lace to buy? on: November 18, 2017 08:35:01 AM
Update the leaf had some tiny roses/trellis added and stitched some glass pearls on some ribbon. Those other 2 roses/pink/gifts  are the hand sewed small size needlebooks I have in use these past years, and the candy canes blue I made last year after hand sewing a pillowcase of same fabric. If someone knows if the candy cane fabric is still sold somewhere was made in blue, green and red? "Seasons Greetings Candy Cane"

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / WIP/UFO lopsided 2 houses wall hanging, ideas for border? on: November 16, 2017 06:00:41 AM
It is a scan of my 2 lopsided houses wall hanging, I am trying to think how to do the border? It is hand sewed on a thin muslin and stitched with both quilting threads and DMC floss, some beads on it, will de adding more..... The bird is done with silk floss so its shiny. Width is 22 cm and height is 62 cm. The sky pieces have some filling so is 3D those two strips. It is made using all sorts of quilt fabric scraps. I keep many loose threads in front so I can continue and they do not get tangled in back and add beads etc Not much quilting yet on it.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How Do You Store Your Yarn? on: November 15, 2017 05:13:10 AM
I have just a little stash of yarn and it fits in a hatbox. I only do a little crochet sometimes. I have seen stashes of yarn online where they are in plastic bins all stacked. And someone had an open cabinet with triangular slots with yarn stashed sort of decorative.
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Bird? Winter acrylic painting on cardboard circle 27 cm. on: November 15, 2017 03:19:08 AM
Thinking about adding a bird? Which one? Birds here in northernEU are not very colorful. I like cardinals from USA any other suggestions? Have yet to enhance the wintry air a bit but paint dried way too fast on cardboard as it seeped it all in. I did not have any primer/basic color to coat the cardboard first. I do not paint often so have little tubes of 22 or 20 ml.Is usually cards/small items I do in acrylic paint. Used to watch Bob Ross on tv long time ago but never got into oils because of the smell/solvents.
The cardboard edge is a bit raw, thinking about maybe glueing ribbon all around as a border.Different suggestion for border/edge perhaps someone did a similar item?

So I had this piece of gold Klimt quilt cotton fabric for a long time in my stash then I found a little leftover fabric but with another color of the floral spray accent so now I had blue and pink. Added some leftover Michael Miller pink quilt cotton fabric for the lining. I have no interfacing no batting so it is a floppy shopper bag.Completely hand sewn with cotton quilt thread. Scan of bag. The size of bag is a 2/3 yard folded double and the sides are width ladies hand.
