My Workdesk Today

Well , it has been a while  since I've posted on WWW. So I thought I would share with those of you who are sharing your work desk today.I have two projects I am working on :  (1)Calendula Patterdrip's Cottage from Crabapple Hill Studio. (2) Fairy Doll

A Halloween Quilt


To share with you honestly I am not a quilter, but this one intrigued me and gave me a challenge. I like the design because each block has a little piece work and design. Once the design is traced on then you color with crayons, heat set and then embroidery the outline of the design. I am getting excited about the way it is turning out so far.

My fairy doll below is something I have been wanted to try for awhile. I visited the local library for the book that I used the pattern from but failed to snap of shot of the cover for you. 

 I will share a little about her, in the background you see the wings, made from water soluble paper, I traced the design and then sewed around it with mutli colored thread. When to my liking of the thickness of thread I then trim,wet and pat dry the wings, this was fun, to see how this product works.For the body and legs I used a light weight almost like canvas material and and sprayed with Tye Dye colors.I like the way the mixture blended. I found  an old pair of stockings (washed of course) that I am planning on using for the hair and some clothing.
Her face I drew  on and then painted the facial features. Enough from my desk and I am curious,so I am off to visit Stamping Ground to see what others are doing on their desks. Enjoy the day.

What Have I Been Up To and Created Since January

  It has been a while since my last post. To let you know  I have been in school, working and taking care of the days that life has to offer. I  do find a  little  to read and see what everyone is creating. I have managed to get some creativity going and produce a few Seed Thoughts.Here is a couple thoughts:

A great find for $25 at a garage sale.Made a coffee/tea bar.

The skirt is made of burlap and scrap material and great trim I had in my supply.It also came with a top and a shelve to hang some utensils. My husband mounted  that part  to a desk for organization in one of the kids room.

Another thought:

  My bird garden creation. I had the frame for years and I purchased the paper at the Scrapbook Convention this year when I attended. I loved this project, I created it one night when everyone had gone to sleep and it just flowed right out. I always enjoy unexpected pleasures.I have hung it in my green house which I will share the excitement and photos of the backyard and green house in the next few post.Hope everyone had a great July 4th and are enjoying summer.

2 New Creations

Here it is the end of the 1st month of a new year. This month has been exciting, stressful, and a little personal growth taken place. I have been starting each day expecting great things to happen. This is a short post. I have managed to share with you a couple of photos of two of my new creations. Here is a  new Spring cloche . Isn't the bird so sweet? The sign inside says Sweet Life. Good words to remember.

I was searching blogs one day and came upon Neelz Expressionz. Very creative, fun to read and interesting. He has some neat tutorials and  I took some time to try  making paper flowers. Yeah! I had just bought some new double sided scrapbook paper.Great time to use it.Here are my three flowers.

I thought they turned out good for my first try at making paper flowers.Be sure and take a visit over to see Neelz.
Well, I did tell you this was a short post. Just thought I would share a little creativity. Hope your week is great.

Fabric,Felt,Jewelry and Ribbon

Do you have a friend,sister or creative soul you share time with to be creative.? I  do, my  friend Mona.If you have a few minutes she would love a visit.  We share creative thoughts, tools and some of our stash. Mona has this new book, Inspired to Sew by Bari J. Yes, she let me borrow the book. 

Bari shares several different skills & techniques . I think it is a book worth adding to your creative/crafting library. I like the Flower Brooch project. So off to look through my stash of fabric,felt jewelry, and ribbon.With my needle and thread in hand I started to create. This is the one I started for my friend M.

Below is a look at the final results. What do you think? I like the finished product.

I am planning on making some more Brooches after the holidays some with Spring colors. It is project that doesn't take to long and you probably have the tools and materials on hand.. It's a great gift idea. Hope this next week is a blessing  for everyone . I hear the nice crackling fire calling me.
