Flanged Pillow

Made this for my front room. It has that blue toile thing going on, but the cheapman's toile because I got it at Wal-Mart. I liked the pattern though. The front has this 18th century Neo-Classical thing going on, and the back has both a washerwoman and a hunting scene.

My experienc with toile is that it has an obligatory washerwoman scene. Sometimes with the vase of water on her head, sometimes without, but there's always a woman doing laundry.

Too true. Posted by Picasa

This purse was made from Butterick Pattern BP440. Very cute bag, but a bit large for an every day purse for me. Might use it as a knitting bag or book store bag. Posted by Picasa

MotG Work-in-Progress

This is my current cross-stitch project. The design is Madonna of the Garden by Mirabilia. I loved the design because it reminded me of a Renaissance painting. This picture was taken on June 26, 2006. Posted by Picasa

Why a new blog?

This is not my first blog, but my second, after starting one on Yahoo! 360. Ran into some technical problems there, especially people who, having received the invite, wasn't sure what the 360 thing was all about. Well, this way, I can just give them the URL and they can see.

I wanted a separate blog to showcase some of my craft-work projects past and present. I wanted a place where I could show Works in Progress without having to put a webpage together.

Hopefully soon I will be able to modify my template and personalize the background.

Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think about my creations!
