http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bonnie+mccaffery&page=2 Here is the link where I found a video Bonnie McCaffery did with Maggie Grey where she showed how to do transfers from an inkjet copy to fabric using fusible web. Bonnie has over 80 videos that are worth watching. She does a great interview.
The first two sets are photos I took in Germany. The above door is done on beige muslin using Steam-a-seam 2.
The flower was in our front bed. It is done on white cotton using Lite Steam-a-seam. The right side didn't transfer very well-maybe not enough heat from the iron. It is of the stone border.

Finally, I managed to do a quilt top from some of the pieces. The pale green is hand dyed cotton; the blue commercial fabric.
We did non-traditional patterns, had lots of fun and learned a lot about color. Everything needed that shot of lime to perk it up.

I've been doing some crochet bookworms for a friend. These are done in Perle Cotton number 8 with a size 5 hook. In pattern books they are called corkscrews. She uses them in her Art Clothing. It's a good night time project requiring no thought. Two are white, 4 Ecru.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my beading. I do love to do it even though some projects can be a bit challenging.

I finally finished it!!!!!!!!! This is a project I worked on off and on for several years I think. It would get put aside for other things and be forgotten. First, I beaded around 5 white and gray cabochons. Then I cut them out and tried to find a way to join them together. Finally, I just put them on felted wool cutting out the wool to match the outline of the piece.
The cord is the spiral beading that is flexible but strong enough to support the centerpiece.
More and more people in my group are starting to have problems putting on necklaces that join in the back, so here is an alternative. The snap is on the main piece and the end of the right side of the cord-most people seem to be right handed. I'm pleased with it and mostly glad it's done.
