Quilted Postcard


At Amusing Muses I am in a fabric postcard swap.  This quilted postcard is my entry.  Made with mostly batik fabric .  Center is a very thick stabilizer.  The back is acrylic paint on smooth bristol paper and stamped using StazOn Ink.

Butterscotch Swirl Stitch Markers


Making these little stitch markers is really a lot of fun.  Yesterday morning I made these cute little markers.  The glass beads  reminded me of candy hence the name Butterscotch Swirl.



Stitch Markers


My first attempt at making stitch markers.  I have had the stuff to make jewelry for some time but never did get around to making anything.  So I am happy to make stitch markers which is more useful.  They are not perfect but practice will make perfect…hopefully.

Crocheted Fan Bookmark


Last night I was on  Ravelry looking through peoples completed projects when this great little bookmark showed up.  I had to make it–I couldn’t help myself.  What a great thing to crochet if you haven’t picked up a hook in a long time.   The pattern is offered for free personal use at CrochetRoo.  This one is made with  DMC Baroque size 10 Ecru.  I think I will make it again in a finer thread.



Fair Isle Knitting gone bad!


This hat is my first attempt at fair isle knitting and using a chart.  I was doing well until I  decided to have a drink of tea. Yes I spilled it on pure white and pink 100% merino wool. Ugggggg I wanted to cry. After rinsing in cold water and washing with oxy-clean the stain was still there. The plan now is to cut the yarn, take out all the stitches until the stain is gone, cut the yarn again and start from that point. It’s not a total loss just frustrating.



Gertie an Assemblage-Shrine


A friend with a doll phobia was the inspiration for this piece.  I started Gertie last year and finished her this week.   The tatting  in this piece counts as #2  for the 25 Motif Challenge.  She is available to purchase at my Etsy shop  Shade Tree Art.
