to share with everyone. I thought I would share pictures of the bookmarks I sent to Regina. I guess things got ahead of her as I did not receive one from her. I am disappointed but will continue in the exchanges as I enjoy stitching so much I want to share with others.
The dyed material was my first attempt at dying my own and I wanted something very bright as Regina said she really liked bright colors. The bear was an original that I came up with when she said that she liked bears. I will adapt the bear to a dragon for another bookmark for Christmas. I really enjoyed making these.
Here is a picture of the components for my very first no sew cube. I will be completing it this afternoon and will take apicture of it. The blue is for the no sew for another baby shower.
Here is a project I am making for a friend that graduated this year. Her party is July 11 and I am find that i have to frog alot of the project because I don't like the spacing. I was so close to being done but I just wasn't happy. I know she would have loved it but because I wasn't happy with it, I rip it, rip it, rip it!What does everyone think. You can see where I frogged "School and Class of 2009" I am going to move that all up about 6 rows. I am also going to frog "don't tell me" and move it over about an inch and up about an inch. I hope that will make it look better. Opinions?????
Here is my progress on Snad Castles. I am about 85% done. Just a little filling in (now that I have more of the color I needed), and the water on the right side. I think I will definitely have this done for Christmas.
And here is the progress on my Ink Circles. I did do alittle change up so the tile with the 2009 appears in the tile where the needle is. I am really liking this project but i think I will go back to the smaller projects when I am finished. Although I would love to do this one again in pastel colors. I think it would be beautiful. Well, maybe one day.
Now, I have to thank everyone that sent me ideas for getting rid of the ants that were driving me to distractions. I got some Grant Ant Traps and put them all over (of course nowhere the cats can get into them and I had a very long talk with Gabbie about staying away from them). With in 24 hours the ants are gone. I can again go into my kitchen with out fear. I don't have to clean up ant carcasses any more. WOO HOO!!!!
So today, Thursday, I will spend my afternoon frogging the graduation project and working on it again. I intend to relax and stitch as much as possible and of course making the no sew cube.
