71  sealife wallhanging in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mary Bell on: May 10, 2005 07:43:04 AM
Finally finished last night - seeing as I haven't done this sort of thing before there are some glaring errors and I even made some mistakes I know better than making but - I still rather like the embroidery and the fabric the embroidery was worked on and how the two worked together -
 
The rest of the hanging - well, I could take or leave it

I rather made this up as I went along - the actual embroidery is from Aunt Martha's patterns.

the wallhanging - sorry for the quality of this shot but want to get it sent to Mom so didn't bother retaking:

72  pierced card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: May 08, 2005 02:48:10 PM
I haven't done this since I was very young...the piercing was hard work as the paper was thick and I think I need to figure out a better way to hold the needle - with my fingers it pierced my skin and a pliers got tough too. Think I might tape or glue the needle to a pencil or something.

For my hubby's aunt's 70th...next weekend so had to finish so I can mail it...

73  Ladybug Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: April 28, 2005 04:18:01 AM
My first jewelry ever. I made a pair for myself to wear for my daughter's ladybug themed birthday and a pair for my friend who designed the artwork for the birthday invitation.

76  Really Big Pink Bag for Teeny Tiny Girl in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: April 15, 2005 02:37:54 PM
In a few weeks some friends who are in the states for the summer on furlough will spend the night at our house. They have three little girls. I am making bags for the girls and their Mom and loading them with goodies. I've already the other three. This is for the youngest daughter (around eighteen months).

77  The Wolf thought he had it in the BAG after eating Red Riding Hood's Grandma in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mary Bell on: April 15, 2005 02:35:19 PM
In a few weeks some friends who are in the states for the summer on furlough will spend the night at our house. They have three little girls. I am making bags for the girls and their Mom and loading them with goodies. I've already posted Mom and middle sis's bag. This is for the oldest daughter (around age eight). When she was quite young she read "Little Red Riding Hood" and later announced that God was dead. When asked why she said because he went into the woods and got ate by the wolf.







I feel so clever lining it with hound's tooth check.



I am disappointed with how I did the bag. Ah, well. Live and learn.

I do like the embroidery, the raw edges on the patch and the messy stitching I used to tack it down, as I think it adds an uncomfortable dynamic to the images. I also think much is explained when one realizes that Grandma was part of the 'red hat' club (LOL) Wink



The thoughts of children sometimes impress me deeply.

The Night (7/31/01)

Alice told her Mom and Dad
God dont love us no more
he went in the woods
got ate by a wolf.

I am wolf

black spots tunneling your eyes
when you stand-up too fast

a blast of 100 degree heat
with 98 percent humidity

a crows feather that falls
on the path you walk

I am Grandma

cutting a hole to crawl out
of the darkness through

throwing Grandpas headstone
into the wound

sewing it up

hoping it dies

Alice doesnt sleep at night
cause the woods are growing
under my bed.

78  dressing the refrigerator for spring - two quick fun picture frames in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: April 14, 2005 01:18:37 PM
I am trying to clear out miscellaneous junk I've accumulated for projects. I bought a couple of these awesome frames for a dollar from Wal-Mart (simple plastic frames with nice beveled glass that just pops out - - much nicer than they sound). I just glued some embellishments on them and some magnets on the back (noticed I didn't do such a great job with magnets as I can see one on the front of both - guess that is what happens when you are crafting and feeding the children breakfast at the same time).

I printed a couple of shots from my 640X480 camera for a fun slightly abstract feel and now my refrigerator is dressed up for spring...

79  M is for Mercy or perhaps it is Mickey Mouse... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: April 13, 2005 01:35:32 PM

I now realize the overview shot is too far away:



I found this little button in my button jar and thought it was perfect:



And a look at the color scheme:

80  Finally, after five years, I've replaced those ugly blinds... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Mary Bell on: April 13, 2005 01:28:30 PM
of course, I had nobody to blame but myself. Gotta love fabric at a dollar a yard, this was quite inexpensive except for the rod.

Old blinds



We took of the bit of fabric that hid this when we moved in so then it was really ugly.



New curtains



Pretty finial

 
 

Love the texture of the fabric

 
 

Also made a curtain for the entry...
