Krokbragd Weaving and Ceramic Poppies

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Our summer has been quite dry and all of our native grasses have turned into shades of gold, rust and cream with hints of their former green. My krokbragd weaving, summer corn and seafoam ceramic poppies capture what our Texas summer looks like!

You can purchase the ceramic poppies for a wall art collection in our Etsy shop here:Wolf Art Glass on Etsy.

Rigid Heddle Weaving Pattern – Silver Birch Trees in Autumn

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

I was weaving a blue and cream striped scarf the other day and I liked how the little horizontal blue weft lines crossed over the cream warp threads and it reminded me of lovely birch trees. So here is my first version of a silver birch tree scarf, this one in gorgeous fall colors. This pattern woven wider would make a great table runner and after watching PBS’s Craft in America Episode V111 last night all about threads, I may have to start cutting up my weaving to make into little art quilts.

The finished scarf is available in my Etsy shop here!

New Black Nylon Crochet Purse with Lime Green Lining

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

It has been almost 3 years since I made my first crochet purse out of this great nylon, first mentioned in my blog post here.

I have finally recreated this purse and created a pattern as well that I have for sale. I am thrilled with this little purse, perfect for those grab and go days. I am not one for large purses, just ones that have room enough for the essentials, wallet, phone and keys. This design has a deceptively large amount of space inside due to the gusseted sides.

Purchase this crochet purse pattern here!

Needlepoint Star Heirloom Wedding Sampler and Pincushion

Friday, June 17th, 2011

I had an itch to make another needlepoint pincushion. I was sitting looking at the wedding sampler I made for Dean and I (our 8th wedding anniversary is coming up in July-yahoo!) and the corner star motif jumped out at me as the perfect top for a wide flat pincushion. Here is the sampler – I am also making this sampler available in my Etsy shop for the first time made to order:

Needlepoint Star Wedding Sampler

This sampler still makes me happy just to look at:

Here is the pincushion – available here in my Etsy shop:

The patterns I used in both projects are from this amazing book of charted patterns from my favorite publisher Dover Needlework:

Charted Peasant Designs from Saxon Transylvania

Whenever I need a boost, I pull out this book and drool over all of the amazing patterns from days of old when this type of needlework was done to spice up otherwise plain homemade clothing and home decor. Simply breathtaking!

Pottery Art Tile Ornaments

Making these art tile ornaments is my new way of testing our patterns for larger pieces that Dean throws on the wheel. These ornaments take a surprising amount of time to glaze but are worth every minute.

These are the coolest little birds! The last time I went to the Mitchell Lake Audubon center, I saw tons of them flitting around us. I highly recommend a visit the next time you are in the San Antonio area on the weekend. Well worth the time to support a wonderful wildlife habitat.

Here is the latest pretty bird to join the flock – a Black Crested Titmouse! We get this variant down here in Austin, TX. I see them each and every day at my feeders and never get tired of their antics.

I always refer to this odd little wire bird house as the “Blair-Witch house” – it reminds me of those weird little totems made of sticks hanging in the trees in the movie. He looks quite comfortable here.
