BOOKS!!! I also have a few Tapestry's that I've done that came from England, done with Wool, but I don't have a scanner, is there another way that I can send them?! Remember, your talking to a "Techno-Tard" here!!! And Wool Tapestry work is starting to become a "lost-art" the only way that I can get my Tapestry's is by ordering them from the UK, or by buying them when ever I go "Home". You see plenty of Needlepoint and Crewel work done here, but not Wool Tapestry's being done.
I Ã¢â‚¬Ëœve become artistically challenged :lol :lol I use to dabble in ceramic but nothing really creativeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦the stuff already came shaped from molds, not the potterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wheel. And I use to sewÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.but now I even hate to hem a pair of slacksÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll pay the $10 thank you :lol
lace. this is the way all lace was made until there were machines to do the job.
Here is the three steps to a bobbin lace hanky I made. it was about 60 hours work if I remember correctly.
I need to take better pictures of the things I have, so that the stitches show.
and here is a cross I made in bobbin lace.
any of you can send your photos to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Just do NOT try to resize them before sending. if you send me a 2 inch photo, then it can not be enlarged.
I can always make them smaller.
I am with Shipmaven. Back in my younger days I used to do all kinds of crafts-took art in college but I was into wild modern stuff-Art teacher used to say I had painted everyone of his ties. I have done ceramics love to paint them as doe3s Paw but you can use just so many and give as gifts. I can crochet but have no patience with counting stictches same with knitting. I used to embroidery. We did all kinds of crafty things for church bizaar before motehr died. Like cruising I really went to sessions just to chat and be with people. Genealogy is the one continous hobby I follow--every once in a while I pull down a folder and stgart chasing b rick walls. Congratulations Corky, Red, Iluvcrusin and all the other crafters wonder where the other glass girl Kat is these days. Maybe eating is my major hobby.
Corky, your lead lines are beautiful. I would like to see more of your work.
Regina, I am so glad to see you post your china painting. I asked you before if I can include it in the cruise addicts album.. and I ask you again. Please let me add it in.
Shipmaven, of course it counts... blows my half baked paintings right out of the water..so to speak :lol
and may I add it into the album?
Sadly guys.... the fishing and boozing although they do take a certain skill... casting.. pouring..walking....... I do not think there is a place in the album for that catagory :grin
