Love making and wearing all sorts of colorful flowers to liven up an outfit, so learning some new designs would be great. Thanks
This is truly a felt extravaganza! All four books look so good each with a different technique or subject. The Carnival of Feltmaking looks fabulous.
Yes, why only celebrate one day when a whole month is available!
I would love to learn to use up the scraps and fabric that I seem to not be able to resist either thrifting or at the fabric store. I plan on making a quilt or two using these fabrics but need some help figuring it all out.
New ideas and patterns for the fabric and scraps is needed here. It is amazing how much fabric accumulates and making some quilts is in order. Thanks
This sounds like there would be soms fun designs!
How cute are these? I need to make some reindeer!
What great ideas! Super-cool.
This looks so cool. I love granny squares, but have not really
mastered them....perhaps this will help me to understand what I am doing wrong since mine are always a bit lop-sided.
Hambly Screen Prints has gone out-of-business since the original article was written. Too bad as I really liked their screened transparencies and paper.
So many other companies are making rub-ons that are good too.
I certainly need some tips on how to make pictures better. I love these two and the blog.
The books sound good and my favorite would be the Brooches and Pins, Necklaces, and bracelets.
Thanks for having so many things to look at and keep us DIYers going.
I think this project is a great idea, but the drilling technique is actually quiet unsafe. The spinning of the glass is not a good way to drill these pieces.
It would be better to get a pair of the wooden pliers (available at jewelry supply stores-like Indian Jewelers Supply in New Mexico) or take some rubber bands and wrap the jaws of the wooden pliers or a pair of adjustable pliers for some gripping action. Grip your glass firmly, lay the piece on a piece of wood or an old teflon cutting board(white ones), hang your pliers over the edge so the glass lays as flat as possible.
A silicon hot pad would also be an alternative in assisting the holding of the glass. Just cut off pieces to put under and for your fingers to hold.
Do not be afraid of the drill when your hands are close to it if you hold on it will not spin. If it does start to spin immediately stop the drill.
Put oil or water on the piece to make a slurry of waste and to assist with the glass flying around and small particles getting airborne.
What a great trip you took from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon. I think it was great to hear of all of the nice shops and owners that were visited and how friendly they all were.
I cannot believe you were filling up the van as you went. You said nothing of space issues, so I guess you two paced yourselves!
The hummingbird ornament at the end was a very nice ending present.
P.S. Your booth looked so good. Thank you for the postings.
I love Jeffery's paper tutorials and have done several such as the cake cut-out decoration. A book on flowers would be so welcome--the poppies would be my first project!
I just bought a plain light brown skirt and I thought it needed to be perked-up a bit.....flowers such as these would do the trick!
I absolutely love crocheted flowers as they are a nice sized project when I want to get something done and feel satisfied.
Oh the projects in these books look so fun.
I do volunteer work at a non-profit community art center where I lead workshops on many arts projects. This would be a wonderful addition to the offerings at the center.
Sweater in this styling remind me of all of the beautiful sweaters that my mother wore (she and my grandmother knit them)
These have such classic styling.
Cool new project books that look fun.
I love books like this as they always make me feel good and goofy.
The Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures really is right up my alley.
I made the promise to myself that I would sew more clothes...for me. The mention of blouses is of interest to me and of course a new bag to go with them!
New patterns to get going on is just the thing.
Who doesn't love a new craft book??
I think that the play on the science fiction geekness is fabulous.
Time to get out of the winter funk and start creating...I teach at a non-profit for kids and adults so fresh angles are needed.
Winning this book would do us a world of good.
