Crocheted Doily

A couple of weeks ago, we went to the West Texas Fair and Rodeo and I 'scouted' out the needlework competition. I decided to begin for next year now in case my hands had a long bout of not working. So.......here is my first finished piece: Small Chanukah Doily from www.freepatterns.com . It is in size 10 thread and 6" in diameter.

Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge #14

This week's challenge is a color challenge. It is an unusual trio - orange, teal, and pink. I went simple to accent the colors. I used digital papers by Kay Eflin and a digi-stamp by Tracey Miller at Fred, She Said.

Digital Tuesday Challenge #22

This week's challenge is Lace and Pearls. I used a digital image by Tracey Miller (Fred She Said), paper and lace from my stash, and pearls from my jewelry-making stash. It's hard to see in the scan, but the pearl loops hang freely from the corners.

Simon Says Challenge #19

This is my first time for the Simon Says Challenge, so here goes.....this week's challenge is Heidi's Choice . It is a sketch to use as a guide. I used old stamps, paper from my stash, vintage trim and flowers from a lei. I used my 'old faithful' of comic book backing board to make it a plaque.

This week, the Stamp Something Challenge is Animal Somethings . I decided to make a Halloween tag. Both stamps are by Stampin' Up! and the tag and papers are from my stash. The bear is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
