MY CRAFT PROJECTS ...

SOME THINGS I'VE MADE  ...


Needlepunch - Crow & Stars (a Margaret Shaw design)

A run of woven rag rugs, completed summer of 2015

The Holy Family nativity ornament was made for the 2014 Christmas party ornament exchange at my rug hookers guild.

This is my first attempt at serious penny rug making.  I used an old Army blanket that a friend gave me and some off-white wool I had on hand.  The stitching is in heavy pearle cotton.  This was a fun / learning project for me and I look forward to doing more in the future.  I looked at some penny pieces a friend did and wanted to give up; her stitches are just perfect and mine are far from that!  This pattern/idea was from the Maggie Bonanomi book, "Nature".
 
I hand painted the cloth, then tacked some yo-yo's to the front. Gave this to my Veronica! She seemed to love it and was going to use it in the car on the way home from Grandma's. Made my day!

Placemats, woven from quilting cotton selvages (the ultimate recycling project).

Placemats woven with silk ribbon.  Gave these to Benjie.

Doll clothes for Veronica's 18" friend.

Halloween Cat lapel pin.

Crocheted mesh market bag.  I take this with me to the Farmer's Market in Spencer.

Some of the hats & scarves I crocheted for Project Warmth in Spencer couple years ago.

Quilted wall hanging.  Took this class from Margaret Scott at Runaway Quilt Retreat, Maple Mount KY.
