I'm such a Geek (absolutely MAD for Doctor Who!!!) that I subscribe to a site called Fandom in Stitches.
The site owner has discovered blatant theft of her free patterns (and others) on a
pay-for-patterns site. They appear to be selling free patterns from around the web. If you offer any free patterns, you may want to check here and see if you have been ripped off... http://www.losangelesneedlework.com/

Good night Sweet little Edie.
You will be terribly missed.
There is a huge hole in my heart.
My best friend lost one of his sweet angels tonight when she ran in front of a car. Please, please take extra care this time of year with your precious furbabies. A blink of an eye is all it takes...

Finally putting all of those big silk screens to work!
|three layers of screening|
|lost something in the washout, but not too bad|
|Still working on this one -- not sure where it's going yet|
|Love this one, because it reminds me of this......|

I did another mural for P.J. McIntyre's last month, sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey
Here are some working photos. Although this was done on a flat wall, they wanted the look of old bricks on this section of wall. The first layer is primer and then I made a rubber stamp and mixed up a bucket of various textured acrylic mediums to lay on the faux bricks.
Next I painted the Jameson label background color and painted in the 'mortar' in various shades of greenish/gray.
|The area is about 9 feet high and 12-13 feet wide|
Next was painting in the bricks over the mortar.
Then I painted the label from the bottle
|Thought I was finished here.|
But it was too pristine and Pat asked me to come back and make it look old and beat up -- like the bricks
