Weekly Photo Challenge: Community…Gossamer

Holiday flings…party things….gossamer wings

Images of Christmas season in my little community: headed to the office party, living in my community of cats, fashioning gifts from remnants. Dragonfly pattern from 5D Embroidery. Sulky metallic embroidery thread. Shopping bag pattern is Kwik Sew K3612. Happy holidays, all!

Weekly photo challenge: Grand

20131207-202738.jpg

A grandiose Christmas tree in the Thornebrook shopping center. Or, should it be called a “holiday tree”? If the focus is shopping and buying presents to curry favor with our materialistic friends and associates, probably “holiday tree” is good.

Holiday remnant project: gym towels…possible quick gift, or even wrapping for small gift.

I found some terry cloth remnants at Joann Fabric, cut them into small towels, and embroidered yoga motifs: crown chakra, aum symbol. I found some nice chakra embroidery designs at Urban Threads. Then I just turned under the exposed seams and sewed narrow hems. The shiny stuff on the brown crown chakra embroidery is Solvy stabilizer that will wash out. It’s good to put on top of fabrics that have a nap or texture, to keep the needle from snagging or skipping during embroidery.

I was looking at some old family photos and found this one of my GRANDfather’s Christmas tree, circa 1910. He decorated it himself, as he attests in the handwritten inscription on the back.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

For this weekly photo challenge

we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.

Nothing says much more about me than my fabric stash: the hues and patterns that call out to me. It’s a little disorganized, the boundaries between the colors are a little jagged, some important items are hidden behind others. It’s a collection of possibilities and permutations.

People ask me my favorite color; I say green. But most of the clothes I like to buy are blue. And yellow looks terrible on me, but I have yellow-gold dishes and I loved my yellow-painted kitchen and dining room. It would appear that the hues of me are not all that simple…
