Friendship Braclet


 
 
This is the friendship braclet and the loom used to make it!
The site uses yarn, I used Canon Watercolours.

Tatting

I have been trying my hand at neddle tatting lately.  A whole lot of starts have accumilated but, I am finally finishing the pieces.  You can tell I photograpged them by the quality.

Finished the Mushroom!

I finally finished the mushroom.  Still can’t take a good picture.  I wanted a lot of texture and glitter on it.  Neither shows in the photo.

TAST French Knots

 

This is a WIP for this weeks TAST.   The graphic is by Janet M. Davies and found at http://www.jmddesigns.co.nz/tutorials/applique_butterfly_tutorial.htm.  She has some great stuff on her blog and I get lost for hours viewing it.

A little chest I made of match boxes on a wooden base, with beads for knobs.

 My very first crazy quilt block.  Doesn't feel quite finished yet, but unless I put it aside for a moment my mind will keep going around in circles about it.  The bird was from a pattern on the French Knots web site.  There are so many great patterns there!  I also tried my hand at the trellis stitch.  Not quite right but had fun doing.

Orange spots

For some reason my camera’s exposure is too bright and I have no idea how to fix it.  Guess I need to RTM real soon.
On a different note, I am making my first quilt and wanted to tack it.  It is way too heavy for me to do any thing else to it.  I needed a frame to work on and the prices I found were way out of my budget so I made my own.

A Little Befuzzeled

 

Just wanted to check this app out that was on my puter!  It seems I can add to my blog from my desktop.  Think I will like this!

My first try at this

I thought I would give TAST a go after seeing the posts from last week.  I read somewhere (and for the life of me I can't remember where) that Press and seal was ideal for transferring an image to be embroidered.  Tried it and found I had a hard time getting it off after the graphic was finished.  Maybe it is because of the state of my hands! 
This week the stitch is the buttonhole stitch.  I still haven't mastered taking pictures yet.  Here is my go at it.
