One of my customers, cjebens,  just sent me these photos of a Halloween quilt she made for her daughter using my Red Ink Splatter fabric! You can't really see the awesome detail that she quilted it with spider web patterned stitching here, but there are a few more detailed photos where you can see that here:

Here's the front view
And the back!

This is my entry for Sponflower's jack-o-lantern plushie or pillow contest. I went with a pillowcase featuring Cinderella as she leaves the pumpkin patch for the ball. Click on each picture to see a larger version. Oh, and you can see my design here.
This is the front of the pillowcase, right-side-up.

I've finally finished making the small notebook to go with the pencil case as a gift for my sponsored child, Sarla.
Here you can see the sweet little pencil pouch that I made using my Parakeets on Gold fabric.
The panel on the notebook featuring my Red Fox King II. fabric.
And here they are side by side.
The blank pages on the inside are regular computer paper.
And I'm just throwing this swatch photo of my Orange Chevrons on the end here instead of making a whole new post.

Richard sitting on a pillow made using my Sunny Chevron III. fabric!

The pillow sans cat.
Another pillow made using my Blue Chevron fabric.

Bella sitting on the blue pillow and Richard on the yellow one.
Bella again, she sort of obstructed my view to the pillow, but you get the idea.

Richard and The Viking
His face

The back of his head

The lacing on his fuzzy boots

Sitting against a wall in terrible lighting
I used the flash . . . apparently it doesn't make up for poor light
Another sitting in bad light
And the whole lovely Viking!

I was going to put up the original sized file, but it's way too big to upload.
So here's a super small version for your viewing pleasure along with a few zoom views.
Oh, and here's a link to the fabric: Warrior: A Guy's Doll

Fabric and paper bookmark made with my Nymph 2 fabric test swatch.
You can see where I whip-stitched the paper together to form the stiff base of the bookmark.

I sewed on the swatch of fabric with the edges folded under.


And here's a straight view of the front. 
The back of the bookmark was done by gluing on a plain piece of paper that I colored red with a marker.
I used this layer to cover over the backside of the stitches that held the fabric in place.
I laminated the paper by placing horizontal rows of clear tape all along the back without overlapping or leaving spaces.
I went back over the tape with a sharpie making the scale pattern using the horizontal lines to keep my design straight.
Over this I placed a second layer of tape in vertical rows to seal the design.
