Wanderlust art journal cover

This past week we were tasked to finish the covers of our art journal we worked on throughout the year for Wanderlust 2017.  My art journal has a lot of empty pages yet so I am going to continue to use it for next year's projects.  I named my journal " My Wanderlust Journey".  Here is the front - the back is the same.

Christmas Tag

I made this tag today - inspired by Jennifer McGuire's tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist series over at the classroom on Ellen Hutson.com.  I think I will try and make a few more of these.

Mystery Quilt

It is done finally.  Not too pleased with the results - my own fault  for the quilting part.  I hade to take off the red border as the backing shifted.  Lots of lessons learned on this quilt.

Gingerbread House

Here is the completed Gingerbread House I made.  It is all machine embroidery then sewed together.  Folds up and has a handle on top.  I did not make the little finger puppets that are supposed to go inside.  I love all the details - cannot see them in photos but for example the candy jars have clear plastic on top to make them look like glass and the windows have a thin white organza type material to look like a curtain.  The tree and teddy bear (inside and cannot see in the pictures) are felt.
