Ten....and Eleven....

Today we will re-visit 2010 and 2011.

In February of 2010, I completed working on Ellyron, my studio companion dragon.  She was a test run for a pattern  ('Draconis') by Amy of An Li Na Designs.

In August I completed another of what would eventually end up being approximately thirty of my jackets made from recycled denim...

In March of 2011 I designed a circular knitting needle case
for a friend who is an amazing knitter and had LOTS of
circular needles to store....

In May of 2011 I completed a crazy quilted wedding purse
for our soon-to-be daughter-in-love...

I think you can click on any of the pictures to 
embiggen them to see more details.

 - I just read THIS very interesting article about artistic paralysis and thought some of you might find it of value.

- I don't know if any of you will have a use for THIS but I can see it on a shed door - or inside the house if you like rustic decor.  

- Came across THIS tutorial and thought some of you might just have the makings lurking in a drawer somewhere.  

- There's a great tutorial HERE to turn an old glasses case into a sewing case.

- In yesterday's post I sent you off to see the pretty little nail polish bag from a tutorial HERE  and I just now discovered another post about it HERE which shows some ideas of how else to use it, as well as some adjustments to the original pattern.  

- I don't often send you off to commercial sites, but I'm making an exception for THIS.  Sunbonnet Sue, all grown up!

- If you have a little one in your life, and if that little one is fascinated by fairies, you HAVE to make one of THESE!!!

Today the quote is from Paulo Coelho..."The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion"

  4. Nice projects, I like the crazy wedding purse.
    And fairy lanterns, perfect for summer time evening frolics!

  5. Now I want to see all thirty of your recycled denim jackets. The one you showed us today is fascinating! More, please. :)

    1. Thanks Becki - you can see more of the jackets (but not all of them because I did so many) if you check out the 'recycled denim jacket' label in my sidebar. There might be some in the 'recycled denim' section too.

  6. Love seeing your yearly reviews and all the amazing and beautiful Works of HeArt you have created. You are so very creative!

  7. I have a Helen Scott book, thinking one day I would fashion a quilt using her delightful patterns. 30 I bet they are all amazing!


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
