oops!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

I was happily working along on a postcard, when I decided to fuse the front to the back and the heat from the iron caused the plastic veggie bag to shrink and the whole card curled up. I should have taken a picture of the curled up card – but I attacked it with scissors first to see if I could save it. I was really liking the card before the mishap, now it is just an oops! piece. And maybe it will give you a laugh! I cut out the plastic parts and then recovered just the fiber heart on the left with the more plastic and stitched around it again. But it still curls up too much for my liking.

February and Hearts

Friday, February 1st, 2008

I woke up to about 4 inches of snow this morning and it’s still snowing! It’s a pretty welcome to the month of February. And since this is Valentine’s month, I’ll share a little felted heart I did by hand with one felting needle. An embellishing machine is looking more attractive all the time for projects like this. I’m not sure where this little heart will end up – but it will let me know where it belongs.

Valentines

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

My Valentines are ready to send to Lenna for the swap.  I’m so excited! as this is the first time I’ve participated in an International swap! I’ve done local swaps over the past few years – round robins for my quilting group, bag, and tag swaps. I hope the ladies receiving my hearts will be pleased! Off they go in tomorrow’s mail! They are made of woven fabric, and embellished with beads and fibers.
