three posts in one day!

I have never done that before!
Yesterday was take a stitch Tuesday at http://www.pintangle.com/  I didn't have time to post about it though.  I did manage to do the buttonhole stitch.  Again, I had hoped I would be working these stitches on my crazy quilt journal project for 2012 but I still haven't come up with an idea for it.  That is kind of bugging me.  I have been busy with other creative things so ...   Anyway, here is my buttonhole stitch worked into a circle (sort of) with variegated thread.  At least I managed to do this on an existing project.  I don't care to think about how long I have been working on this project.  Needless to say it has been way too long!

just a quick note

Luminate art is doing 12 Days of Giveaways on their blog.  Who doesn't want to win something shiny!  They make H2Os which are a lot of fun to use!

Last of the shell pages


There is no stitching on these pages.  I used some beautiful sparkling paper that is quite stiff.  I also used some of my own decorated paper for the other page.  I had painted the doily and cut up a piece of if to use in another project so this is what was leftover.
