The trash finds for today, Sept. 23, 2008. I'm done with cleaning my sewing room now.

Sunflower for Sept. 22. While busy cleaning my sewing room, I found these fabrics in the scrap bag.
The heart and mirror, grouted. I used verdigris color grout.

The Sept. 21 sunflower.
I think I have 224 items I made so far this year, posted. I counted each group of ATCs as one. And all the fused glass necklaces as one. It's a rough count. I'm going to have to start making daily sunflower quilts again, if I want to get up to 365 in a year. Don't think it's possible.
I have added a new link today. It's for Two Twelve Arts Center. I teach there, as do many very talented people. Take a look at it. If you are local, it's a great fun place to take classes.

This is a heart mosaic, my interpretation of a painting called Blazing Heart.

Scarf 2, just finished. This is from my collection of yarn.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

I made this scarf yesterday and today. I love the colors, and it was a quick project. Maybe a class?
Both of the mosaics are just glued, and have to be grouted when dry.

Day of the Dead, inspired by a picture in an art catalog. This was fun to do.

Mirror, made with tile from Morrow Steiner.

This is a new mask, inspired by the African masks in the Smithsonian collection. It is appliqued, and hand stitched.

Grandma made a book today too.

Mary made a pillow, on an antique featherweight sewing machine. And she learned to bind a pamphlet style book. She has hands, and likes penguins!

Joanna made a pillow and a book today. She has toes.

This book is also an art journal. It's 6" by 8", also has watercolor paper pages. The pages are different sizes in this one. In both books I presmudged many of the pages, to avoid the mental block I may get with new white sheets.

This book is 8" by 10", filled with watercolor paper, and bound with coptic stitching. I used canvas boards as the cover. It's meant to be an art journal.

This is the first time I've used MS Paint to draw a picture. I then printed it on fabric, and appliqued it to the Artist Trading Cards, which are little teeny quilts.

This is the last fabric book page I'll make for the Running With Scissors challenge. It's made from fabric transfers, and pen drawing.

Bearded man, a new mask, finished today.

Today I spent the day learning to make books. I made a simple pamphlet, an accordion book, A Japanese bound book, and one I can't remember, and a canvas pamphlet book.

The mirror, grouted. I used tan, and added a big spoon of green to it. It looks gray/green.
