Fabric Boxes.

These are a couple of fabric boxes I made to sell in the shop. Both have an oriental theme going with the fabric as well as the embellishments.
I added some thread lace on the lids, This is done on water soluable stabilizer using a hoop with the feed dogs down on the machine. Then you just sew in circles until you reach the desired size.
Added to that as I sewed is bits of metallic threads and leather fragments. Some beads bring a nice brightness to the piece, and some tassels are a nice touch I think.
One is black and the other is brown/gold. I show the inside of the lids where I appliqued a fussy cut piece from the fabric.

Wool Rovings

These were the rovings I order awhile ago... aren't they gorgeous colors??!! I can hardly wait to do some ATC's with them.. So far I only got the "Sock Monkey" finished.

Cute Accents for Dolls to come

These were just too cute to resist! They are Xmas tree Decorations, but I have other plans. Can't wait to do a doll to fit each thing.Won't that be cute!

My Creative Space.

Well You asked for it!!!! I have so much stuff I can't make it any more tidy!!! When I try I can't find anything~!!
When I'm working I can look outside through the patio doors and see the garden and the birdies.... This time of year is pretty drab as far as the flowers go but the cardinals, chicka-dees and blue-jays leep me entertained. In the summer we get the gold finches and if we are lucky maybe some hummingbirds....
I neglected to tell you I keep my fabric in one of the bedrooms which has a walk-in closet. The main spcae was suppose to be a family room. The plan was for me to have half the space and the bedroom for my studio... the other half was for my DH pool table, dart board, and hammond organ..... well as you can see 6 year later, he lost the deal.... The pool table makes a wonderful working place for me to cut things out etc!! Playing pool is not an option anymore!!!!PS he doesn't care....whew! :-)
