Re: Book Giveaway: "The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook"

I would love to add this book to my sewing library. Burda is a trusted name in the sewing business and I am sure this book will live up to their high standards!

Re: How to Make Perfect Paper Daisies

I love anything you make with paper. Keep thinking up ideas like this! I love your work.

Re: Recycled Paper Bead Jewelry- Earrings

I love your beads. I have never used magazine paper, I have used cloth that I have painted and other paper I have painted myself. I love the sheet music jewelry. Fabulous. Since I am The Thread Lady, I use lots of thread in my projects, no matter what I am creating. When I sew I never throw away my cut threads. I keep them and then chop them up and mix them with glittery stuff and put it between a layer of fabric on the bottom (depends on what I want that to be---it can be cotton or silk, or just about anything else I have around) and then I put a piece of gauze or chiffon over that. Then I do lots of thread-painting, including couching and bobbin-drawing and create a cloth that is unique. I often make this cloth into handbags or cut up parts of it and use it in a quilt. I think I will try using it in a piece of jewelry. I wonder what I can make? I'll have to experiment and let you know what I come up with.
