I caught my stitching bug again! And ms bug is hogtied and hanging where I can see that little beast!
Before I show you what I have been stitching.
We FINALLY got to decorate our big tree this year. 2007 was the last year we were able to set our tree up. It's 11 1/2 feet tall and took me 5 days to decorate. I am still moving decorations around to better places...
I made more progress on my Maiden. She was supposed to be done some time ago. But, life gets in the way and interferes with the fun stuff.
Valerie emailed and said she received the ornament exchange I stitched for her. I have four more, stitched up, that I can't show you as the persons have not received them yet.
Here are some ceramics that I painted, with ceramic stains, a while ago.
This castle is unpainted bisque. Not sure when I will get around to painting this one. I have several boxes of bisque to paint. Problem is that I have no where to put the castle once it is done.
As I was unpacking craft boxes, I realised that I needed a better way to store ribbon. And, somewhere that was economical on saving space. I looked on ebay and found some ribbon racks. Then looked at the price. YIKES!!!!
I looked at the racks and decided they did not look that difficult to make. Actually the racks were pretty straight forward. Made my own version to fit what I needed. Made 3 of them! And they are all full of rolls of ribbon.
I used 1"x4"x22" on the top and bottom. 1"x1"x36" for the sides. Cut 3/8" dowels for the ribbon holders.
Then drilled holes in the top 1"x4" piece of wood and installed 2 eyelets for S hooks. The S hooks are used to hang on top edge of the door.
I needed to screw down my machine embroidery thread racks on the wall. From past experience, the spindles are so short that the thread cones would not stay on the spindles. Due to the angle of the thread racks once they were hung on the wall. Take down one cone and have an avalanche of six more.... Looked for racks with longer spindles and that didn't work out. I am standing in my room, staring at my thread racks, sipping water through a straw. I looked down at my drink straw and wondered if they would work..... So this is what I came up with.
I would like to wish everyone happy holidays!
