Tearing fabric - the ultimate stress reliever!

It's still pretty cool, even cold out so I continue to do projects indoors. I am waiting for nice weather to try some 'paint pouring' projects.  I won't stress out doing it outside, inside it would be pretty messy for a beginner trying out this technique.

So indoors I continue to craft. This is another torn fabric wreath.  It consists of a striped fabric and a floral fabric. This time I snipped each end of each strip with pinking shears to give it a bit of a different look. 

This is going to be a door prize for a baby shower in the summer. I will probably make another one in a different color scheme, too.

Thanks for stopping by!


You can find me on Pinterest. I pin lots of cute, helpful, fun and practical pins from a variety of Pinteresters! (Is that a real name for us who love to be on Pinterest?)

Last day of winter!

It's the last day of winter so I figured I would celebrate by posting a project!

Here is a torn fabric wreath. Bent hanger into a circle, tore lots and lots of strips of three coordinating fabrics. Tied them tight and close to each strip so it would be fluffy. I tied somewhat randomly. It is hanging on the wall.

These are fun to make and you can be watching tv or listening to music and able to make this kind of thing easily.

Winding down winter, hurry up spring!

It's a damp day out today, not overly cold....but a good day to keep on crafting and getting projects done.

This is another memorial canvas that I made for a nice woman. We had connected a little while back when she was looking for someone to do some calligraphy for her.  That went well and we became Facebook friends, I would enjoy it if we became 'real' friends too.

She saw that I was making these canvases so we did a trade - her husband is a wood worker and I liked his work a lot.  They gave me a cookbook holder and I completed a memorial canvas in exchange. It was a win-win for us.

Here is a picture of the cookbook holder and the Facebook page so you can see other projects.

And this is the memorial canvas that I completed.  As with other ones, I do not publicly show the photograph on these canvases to respect the privacy of the family. The photo is on the left side.  This one is black and white - acrylic paint on canvas; spray varnish.

More knitting

It is still knitting weather to me so I continue to play around with stitch designs.

Here are 3 little persons hats I knitted using circular needles.  And one of the hats now sports a tassel.  I have fun playing with designs.

Thanks for looking!
