new little tyvek brooch

Just made this little tyvek brooch. I has silk leaves and beads as well. It's my first playing with tyvek. Ooops!! It printed side ways. ;-((


I forgot to tell you the artist's name. It's Tanya Greb who lives here locally. She sells on Ebay and Etsy.


Is this little bunny not the cutest thing that you ever saw??? He was made by a very talented Las Vegas artist. Her techniques are original and unique. If she ever gets discovered I won't be able to afford her art so I better get it now!!

Hot air balloons

Here is my newest hippy bag. The Creations in Fibers Doll Conference coming up was the inspiration for this bag. I'm hoping that it will be in the silent auction at the conference.

Here I go again

Well here is another hobo bag that I just finished. I think that I need new black patent leather sandals, don't you? And it's so properly buttoned up the back, too.

it sews beautifully

What a machine that Janome 6600 is!!! I've been using it for a couple of days. The needle threader and thread cutter are wonderful and it stitches nicely, too. It's everything it's touted to be.

wire chair

Yesterday some of us who belong to Silver Dollers gathered at Bobbye's house to make doll chairs using coat hangers and # 16 wire. We designed our chairs with wire, used light weight wire to hold it all together and to help the warm and natural batting to hold tight as we wrapped the chair before using fabrics and embellishments to complete it. Here is how far it is right now.

Bobbye served a wonderful lunch featuring her famous tuna/pasta salad. She is a very gracious hostess.
It was a fun day with all 10 of us making our chairs.

new sewing machine

I am so excited!!! I got my new sewing machine with its own table. So easy to use with its uniform surface. It's a Janome 6600. I can't wait to use it. So far all I've done is set it up and read the manual.

A new bag

I just made a proto-type of a bag that I'll be teaching soon at our quilt club. Now to write up the pattern and instructions.
