More Baskets


I have four more baskets ready. I am enjoying these very much even though it has been a bit of time between stitching these. I now need to cut out more as I am out of baskets and backgrounds. This is truly going to be a scrappy basket quilt as I never know what background or basket fabric will be used. Trying to reduce some of my stash. Still working on the studio. Work came to a stop for a bit, but I am hoping to get the sanding finished and start to paint by next weekend. Then I have to decide what type of flooring I want. Decisions to be made for paint color as well. Have a great day and I hope you find some time to stitch.

More Artist Book Pages....Photo Heavy Post

Another group of collages for my "Artist Book". I have really enjoyed the making of these and have already placed these inside the book itself.
This one has vintage lace as well as modern lace, which I think is a good mix for this collage. I also placed one of my lace and beaded toggle on this one.
This one has a bit of gingham, vintage lace and a bit of paper as well as a toggle.
This one has antique lace at the bottom along with mulberry paper, word fabric, broderie anglaise fabric and of course the beautiful lace motif that I have had forever and a day.
Again vintage lace, paper, broderie anglaise, a bit of scrim as well as a stitched feature with knots and weaving.
This one has paper scraps, lace broderie anglaise and a bit of fabric that I have had for ages.

Buttons and beads
A smaller book for the larger book. I used samples from another class I had taken with Karen for these pages. I love all those bullion loops.
This is a tiny card that I wrote a thought concerning my dad. I knew I had to place this in my book as it brings fond memories to mind.
How it looks closed for now
I still have 15 blank spaces that need to be filled at this point. I am working on those even as I take out time to write up this post.

This is a page in progress at the moment

These are ready to go inside the book and I will place them inside sometime today. I am steadily working to fill all those empty spaces in my book. I am enjoying the process immensely and will be making more of these in the future. First to finish this one and then plan the next one. This has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken from Karen over the years. A great class with a great group of ladies. Have a great day.
