Simple Sundress

I found a pre-gathered fabric at a fabric outlet a couple of years ago.  Back in December my boyfriend's daughter was over so I measured her and sewed it together and hemmed it.  Didn't turn out too bad and as you can tell she liked it.

Ruffle Scarf

I finished this Ruffle Scarf for a friend's birthday.  It was a quick finish.  I used a silver/grey yarn I found at Michael's.  I found the tutorial here:  Ruffle Scarf (it is a youtube video).

A finish and some final finishes

I finished stitching and beading Latte by Mill Hill.  Since I couldn't frame the sister piece, Cappuccino, I decided to cut this one the same and put them together on a tray.  I took a tray that I bought at either Micheal's or AC Moore, painted it, traced the where the pieces would go, individually glued real coffee beans in the blank space, spray glazed 3 good coats then affixed the pieces to the tray.  I added a hang bar to the back and it is now hanging in my kitchen.

I also framed some previous finishes.  The one on the right was a dollar store frame.  I put an antique white base coat, crackle medium, red white and blue paints then a glaze coat.  The one on the right was also going to be painted but after it was sanded I decided that I liked it just like that.  I sprayed a layer of glaze to seal the wood and it still had a little white paint and turned out cool.
