Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014

Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014

You may recall my inability to actually get my entry done in time for the previous two years for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition. Well, sir, that isn’t happening again this year! I absolutely love Umbrella Prints fabric and can only imagine how wonderful it would be to work with yardage of it. The trimmings packs have a … Continue reading

Painted Quotes

Painted Quotes

Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with quotations, song lyrics, and poetry. I have kept a “quotes journal” for as long as I can remember (and now have a Pinterest board of some of my favorites, too). This is a little watercolour project I started recently, highlighting some of my favorite quotes.

Recent work

Recent work

Some recent stitching projects (both in progress and done): And I had the good fortune of going to an art class my good friend Kate was doing yesterday afternoon at one of our local libraries. We worked with acrylics and made lemon still life paintings. Not bad for 40 minutes, right?

But I have done a few swaps for the Waldorf groups I belong to. This little brown bear, tree, and forest floor mat set (with bear poem) were … Continue reading

Winter Nature Table

Winter Nature Table

I recently did a really fun swap with a Waldorf group I belong to on Facebook. The theme was “Winter Nature Table,” which was perfect because I am just getting into doing a nature table (or windowsill, in our case, since space is at a premium in our tiny house). Each participant made six things– … Continue reading

A Winged Cat Bird Monster

A Winged Cat Bird Monster

I am 100% in love with this latest monster! This is the one for my swap, and as it turns out, the person I have to create for loves birds and cats. I knew I had to make her something similar to my other little one-eyed cat bird monster, but with a little something more: … Continue reading
