little ornament

Made a little ornament from the JCS ornament previews in the latest issue. There's a few others in there that I'd like to make, but this one was small and simple - just one color of silk and a scrap of fabric. Of course, finishing it was a disaster because I suck at sewing, but that's what cording's for, right? Hiding all the loose ends and nasty threads. x.x

I have no idea what the color of the thread is, but it's pretty close to the color recommended in the magazine. :)

finished the castle!

Here we go, finished Ivory Castle about ten minutes ago. :3

I have the next project for the round robin I'm in - lovely Queen of Freedom by Mirabilia, and she's mostly done! Can't wait to get my grubby mitts (okay, CLEAN mitts) on that! Maybe tonight if I don't get sucked in by TV... we just got Netflix and I look forward to rotting my brain. Haven't watched TV in 10+ years!

Also itching to start Dragonfly Pond, yet another Dimensions kit. I got outbid on that one about five times before I finally managed to get it. I love the stained glass look, and I'm a total sucker for dragonfly designs.

building a castle

Been working on an older Dimensions kit recently. It's a small one called Ivory Castle, and it's pretty cute despite being about 15 years old. It's so old I can't find a stock picture of it for comparison.

There's still the rest of the arch around the castle, a crest below, and some decorative stuff above. I'd say I'm about halfway done.

Well, that was a boring post. :p
