Baby shower decorations

The  text (April showers bring May flowers) was designed in Make the Cut software using Jokerman font and was printed on Square One Masterpiece, a repositionable fabric that we placed on the patio door.         

The birdhouse text was cut  in vinyl. 

The clouds were made with tissue paper and the raindrops were cut out of glitter card stock and sewn on a variegated yarn. 

More bead and glass rain showers dangled from the ceiling.

Grayscale Magnified Pinwheels


This is the first time I painted a quilt I had previously made. Some quilters have this done before...I admired them taking a risk after all the work. I wondered if I would ruin a perfectly good quilt. I am very pleased with the results.The grays make the pinwheels pop even more.
The bottom is the before picture.

Library Papercraft projects

 
 
 
 
We created several projects at the Plymouth, Michigan  Library on Saturday.
One was a candle that we added an embellished design on mulberry or tissue paper.Wax paper was placed on top of the design around the candle and our design was melted with a heat gun.
We also made several cards..one was a giant heart that folded in an envelope size and can be mailed.
We also created pockets that have a sliding Candy bar with the help of a ribbon.
It was a very fun day with supplies generously provided by the Library and lots of time and patience on part of the Librarians for the 48 attendees.
