2  Kantha stitched prayer flags in Needlework: Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: Today at 05:13:22 AM
Made for Smmarrt in the mini prayer flag swap.
I love scrappy patchwork covered with simple stitches, these were really satisfying to make. Included are some beads, vintage buttons, ribbon, & lace from my stash.




We were each sent 2, one to keep & one to abandon. Which do you think she'll choose for what?

4  Brown paper journal with patchwork cover in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by craftylittlemonkey on: November 13, 2018 12:05:55 PM
This last patchy journal I'm posting is actually the first one that I made. Rather than a hard card cover, it is fabric stiffened with interfacing. Firm but still pliant. And, like the other patchwork pieces I've made recently, it is full of stories. Projects, fabric sent to me from people here, snippets of life rescued from the scrap bin and given new purpose.



I started with the fabric beads.



Those are stitched to the ends of ribbon bookmarks which are hand sewn between the signatures.


You can see the different colours of thread used for the bookmarks on the spine of the book.


I think they make the whole thing special.


Made for calluna in the IYP swap. I hope she will record some of her travel adventures within.

5  "Slow Craft" Adult Merit Badge in Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: November 13, 2018 11:49:58 AM
Made for calluna in the IYP swap because we are both crafters who take the long route, savouring creative process over expediency.



This is made of all the best things in my crafting world. Felted sweater bits, ancient tape measure, beaded string that used to hold prayer flags and ornaments in a previous studio, embroidery thread, a hoarded kilt pin, ribbons, beads, lace, antique shell buttons.



I love the slothy face. They are slow and deliberate creatures, taking their timely meander through life.

7  Amazing fiber books. in Discussion and Questions by craftylittlemonkey on: November 12, 2018 09:57:10 AM
These incredible works of art were on display at the Oakville, Ontario World of Thread exhibit my daughter and I attended yesterday with Wulf and his partner Ian. It was amazing but because I have become very interested in making books lately, these lovely offerings from artist Melanie Siegel were my absolute favourite pieces there.







Above are smaller volumes but if you look carefully below you can see my reflection in the glass so as to appreciate how enormous these 2 are. Each cover is comprised of 2" squares pieced together, every one of them a small work of art in it's own right. I love this so much. It is exactly the sort of work I do but different, of course, with this artist's unique flavour.

8  A very strange and disturbing work of art. in Discussion and Questions by craftylittlemonkey on: November 12, 2018 09:45:19 AM
Yesterday Wulf and his partner Ian kindly invited my daughter and I to attend the World of Thread exhibit in Oakville, Ontario with them. There was a lot of work on display, I've been posting photos of some of my faves here and this one by Marie Bergstedt is just too bizarre not to share. I don't know what to call this and it's made of fabric, embroidery, buttons, crochet, and I don't know what else so it belongs to no one category. Here it is in all it's strange glory.








It's a self-portrait which really makes me wonder about her life.

9  Beautiful and unique printing concept. in Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions by craftylittlemonkey on: November 12, 2018 09:33:12 AM
Yesterday my daugther and I attended the World of Thread exhibit in Oakville, Ontario with Wulf and his partner. It was fabulous and I took many photos of an incredible variety of work. Among my favourites was this very large piece with images printed on fabric then embellished with stitching and bead work.


The part I loved the most was a printing on sheer fabric overlaid atop another print. You can see it a bit closer up here, it was genius and absolutely captivating to realize that was a sheer overlay moving gently in the breeze created by passers by.


It's entitled "Incantation" and is by artist Susan Moran.

10  Re: Extra large patchwork fabric basket in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by craftylittlemonkey on: November 12, 2018 09:19:42 AM
See, I covered a wicker basket for knitting needles, crochet hooks and a project. It's large enough to hold an entire afghan so I already have a big project basket.


While more project baskets are tempting, I really am trying to finish what I start instead of having dozens of UFO's crowding up the place, lol. I need a reason for another big storage thing like this... I am thinking about what that could be because I really do want to make one for myself.
