Tool of The Fancy

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR. (I couldn't help but try out this "slideshow" here...) Been thinking lately about how in the heck to link all my sites together. (Argh!) And there are still plans for an entirely new site with a new look, and definitely with better...

Too cute. In blues this time.

Here's the other little quilted painting that I finished...oh, about...3 months ago. (Things are very busy around here, but I'm VERY much looking forward to makin' stuff out of all the new petfood bags I've received lately!) This lil' one here is about 3.5 by 7...

Mini-Stitchery

This "mini-sized" quilted painting is just right for a One-Day project...it can honestly be done in a few hours. It's only 5 inches by 3.5 inches, and made it in the same manner as my larger quilted paintings. Both hand and machine sewn, only completed much, much...

To Coin a Purse

Still have lots of good photos and new lil' things to share. This coin purse was sewn from part of a dogfood bag, which happens to be organic food I might add! (I hope the person who gave the bag to me decides to continue buying that food...it's very unique...

Skull and Cross-Stitches

I found this skull already gridded-out (via a fellow Flickr member ---It was just screaming to be turned into a cross-stitched gift for my husband. I knew it would be perfect on the slippers that I've been promising him for awhile now... (click on all photos to...

Quilted Farmhouse (updated)

This quilted painting was inspired by a dream I had. I blogged about it previously, before I even did any quilting, but the color in the photo turned out too yellow. Now I've got a photo that I'm satisfied with! I couldn't really paint exactly what I saw while I was...

Silked, Batiked, Quilted

Here's another quilted painting (I love doing these!) except this one is on silk, and I used a method of batik to preserve the white areas. I also quilted it by hand using embroidery thread, which took about 10 hours...I was sooo nervous about using the machine on the...
