Horray! Paintings up (and available for purchase!!!!!). Since most of my recent paintings are custom portraits, I wasn’t able to have any of those awesome ones, but these are some others. Check them out at Perrier Wines & Liquors on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul, MN (by Ace Hardware)…and buy some booze while you’re at it.
Every year I make my co-workers gifts for all or part of their presents for the holidays. Last year I did the coasters (see posting from last year of cat/dog silhouette coasters). This year…. FLEECE BLANKETS.
Basic materials: fleece blankets (purchased at a brick and mortar store), embroidery thread, and felt! Basically every time we were sitting on the couches watching TV, I’d work on them.
I wish I had pictures of all of them (I think it was eighteen total), but of course I didn’t remember until I gave them to everyone!
I’ve been remiss on posting for awhile (slacker). I should have actually posted this project in the spring…
For FIRST BIRTHDAY presents I made some alphabet letters. Two of my friends were having first birthdays for their daughters, I had lots of extra fabric, and voila. Fantastic gift.

I was ambitious enough to do UPPER and LOWER case as well.
