remembering past projects

hi from northern ny where it is cloudy, rainy, and 55 degrees.

i've been drooling over Mary Ann Moss's newest class Sewn since she posted the first tease pick of it. however, it won't be in the budget for a while (sigh............. hey, do you need class testers mary ann? ;)), but it reminded me of several other projects that i made a couple of years back inspired by MAM. i made theses shortly after starting her ROD class where i ended up with a huge pile of scraps on my desk (and that hasn't ended since, lol). mary ann's original post for these spiderwebs was here

this one hung in my window for over a year until it became really faded. i have another one, i need to dig that one out and hang it up. i love the way the light comes through the needle holes. (hmm, love that little mess up there where xmas decorations were hung before).

while i had piles of scraps i also made these. for the file folder i sewed the squares directly to the folder. for the journal i sewed the squares to another piece of paper and glued it to the cover of the composition book and covered the spine with duct tape. i still use both of these items and have made several more sets since then.

have a good day, mary
