Pinweaving Angel ornament Kit

April 25, 2010 on 3:27 pm | In Uncategorized | 68 Comments

I think I have had this kit for several years and had not put it together. The other day I found it and thought it would be easy to do. It is a pretty straight forward pattern where you take different ribbons and weave them together, cut out the angel pattern, press on fusible interfacing and finish with trim.   All you need is the kit, hot glue gun, pins and an iron. Went together pretty fast. I finished it this morning. Now it is ready to hang on the Christmas Tree :) I will sometimes save these and give them as gifts at Christmas. Here are a couple of pictures. The first one is the pinned weaving ready to iron to the fusible interfacing. The second one is the finished angel.

               

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I started this book  a couple of weeks ago and just finished it.  I really liked it a lot.  The beginning was a gradual build up of the story line and then about half way through I found that I didn’t want to put it down.  I was even trying to read bits at the stop lights driving home.  I read at lunch time, in the morning while eating breakfast and then in the evening before going to bed.  It was very suspenseful and kept your attention. The author, Steig Larsson,  did  a great  job. :)

Retirement Book

April 17, 2010 on 1:03 pm | In Photography, Scrapbooking | No Comments

In August of 2009 my boss retired after spending 24 years with State Government.  I volunteered to be in charge of taking pictures and then gathering pictures to put into a photo album/Scrapbook for her.  I have worked on it sporadically since August and have finally finished it up.   Just in time to give it to her when we all go to lunch with her this week.   I use Creative memories supplies almost exclusively, but do use other papers and stickers once in a while.    (www.creativememories.com).  I think the Creative Memories products are some of the best quality scrapbooking materials you can get. Here is a picture of the first page.
