Thread Treasures - Cupid Time

Well, Valentines Day will be here before you know it.  I realize it is just the first week of 2011, but time seems to fly by.  Heck, I remember this time LAST year.

I created a little Cupid that is perfect for decorating items for Valentines Day.   Can you imagine a husbands face were he to pull out a pair of boxers with this design on the leg?

Thread Treasures - One Color Butterflies

Winter is in full swing, yet my thoughts drift to spring and the return of flowers.  With the return of flowers, Butterflies will soon be fluttering in the air again.  I can spend hours watching them dance in the invisible wind.  I created the One Color Butterfly set from artwork from Clipartopolis to remind me of their beauty as they land and drink from the nectar.  Hopefully we all will be blessed with their sight before long.

Thread Treasures - Egyptian Gods and Goddesses

I have always been in love with archaeology, and dreamed of being an archaeologist when I was a young girl.  I just knew I would discover the largest unknown tomb and go down in history as the best archaeologist of all times.  Hey, if a girl is going to dream, why not have a big one.

Life did not take me on that venture, but I never fell out of love with ancient Egypt.  I love the myths/facts of that time, as well as some of the beautiful artifacts that we have today thanks to the ancients.  I have always been taken with the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, and even named a ton of computer systems after them once.  I found some open source clip art of them, along with their hieroglyphs, so I digitized them.  Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect fabric to make a lap quilt.  I saw some that would be fantastic years ago - to bad I didn't buy it then.
