Bronze Bouquet

This was one of my metals projects in high school. I don't think the flowers were part of the project. I decided to toss the flowers, which were likely an afterthought since they weren't filed very well at all, and keep the little vase, which for now is holding my favorite pen and pencil.

Doll Clothes

Before my mom took Samantha to live with her new owner instead of in the closet of my childhood bedroom, I had her take a picture in the outfit I made for her. The fabric is covered in fruit. I hand stitched the outfit. Later, I made a blanket for her.

Sand Dollars

One summer when I was in high school we went Maine on vacation and I found these sand dollars on the beach. I've had them for about 15 years now, so I decided it was time to find a project for them.

First though, I had to clean them up. They were a little grey, so I soaked them in bleach and water. I forgot to take a "before" picture, so here's a picture after they'd been soaking a few minutes:

Quite an improvement, though they look more uniformly white in the first picture than they actually turned out. They are very small. The smallest is about the size of a dime and the largest is about the size of a quarter. I have yet to come up with a project for them.

Embroidered Animal Pillow Cases

Last Christmas, Zack's grandma sent us these cute little embroidered pillow cases:

A cat for me and a dog for Zack, perfect!

Then, while cleaning out my craft stash, I found this bird pillow case I'd made and I thought I'd feature them all together:

Kaleidoscope Rainbow Stripes

I used this stripey rainbow fabric in quilt block #9 of the Quilt Block Project. I made these four blocks awhile ago and I finally decided to turn them into a finished project, however small. The blocks create a really nice design, though the project is only doll blanket sized.

Finished size: 23"x23"
