My goodness it has actually been a year to the day that I last posted in my blog!!
I have moved a couple of times in that time,and have been busy getting my new place the way I want it. I have moved into a small one bedroom apartment in town, a 10 minute walk to work and to about anywhere else I really want to go except the grocery store.
I made a bunch of bookmarks for a local store earlier this year, here is a sampling of them. As you can see there is a wide range of subjects.

I am involved with a couple of street teams on, which I enjoy to the utmost:) One of the teams is BBEST which is comprised of baby boomers, or at least those 40 and over. We are a very active group. A couple of months back we decided to do a swap, I thought that would be fun so I signed up for it. Little did I know what a struggle it would be for me to think of something that my swap buddy would like. I am so used to just creating without anyone in mind. I made several false starts, didn't like what I was coming up with. Finally created this stack of coffee cups, thinking it would resemble us all getting together and drinking coffee, these dirty cups are the last remains of a fun time drinking coffee together. I am way late on this, it was suppose to be finished my March 31, so sorry Shirley for the delay. I hope you will enjoy your mini-quilt. For some reason the photo is not true to the colors, the middle square is actually a deep purple instead of the blue it is showing. I really like this design and might make a few more with different backgrounds:)

I have been offline for a few weeks and haven't been able to blog or anything. Not being very creative either. Right before I lost my internet connection I had decided to do the etsy challenge for that week, it was a word one Bubbles. I had come up with a few ideas, but this is the one I actually did. Perhaps another time I will do the other ideas I had as one of them is pretty cool.
Anyway here is my challenge of the word bubbles. The sequins(bubbles) along the right side are suppose to be coming from an air filter thing in an aquarium which the seaweed is hiding. I used yarn for the seaweed.

I finally got a couple items completed the other day. I haven't made any ACEO's lately and decided to do just that. ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals, so far mine are all originals. They have to measure 2.5x3.5, mine are made with fabric, just like I make my quilted fabric postcards.
These are made with the novelty cat fabric I found at this little quilt shop that has been in this small town on the Ohio River for years. There is an older couple who owns the store and he has a couple of long arm machines in his backroom. He showed them to me one day, I hope to take one of my bigger wallhanging quilts to him to have him quilt it for me.

The first card is titled POUNCE and the next one is TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS

Here is my next critter kit I made today. She is made from a sweater with vintage jewelry, lace trims, and a big white flower pin embellishments.

My First Critter Kit, DARLA the DANCER

A few weeks ago I made a cute little stuffed critter, Mabel. Remember how I decided that the sewing together wasn't my thing, but the designing was so much fun I wanted to do more. Well today I am doing just that! I present to you DARLA THE DANCER

Several weeks ago I was looking through ebay thinking of getting back into selling there, which by the way I haven't done yet. Still on my mind though. Anyway, as I was looking through the different sections that I would most likely sell in I found a couple of listings that were of appliques that I wanted. So I bought them, and believe it or not the seller lived just a few miles down the road in the same county I live in! Small world isn't it?
I finally made a couple of quilted postcards with the appliques, both are now listed in my etsy store.
So the first picture is of the appliques and the next 2 are of the postcards I made.

About Me

Name: Attack of the Vintage
About Me: Hi! I am a fiber artist tryig to work on my art everyday of 2007. With doing this I hope my art will evolve and I will learn many new techniques this coming year. My goal is to be able to make my living doing my fiber arts. I also make my own earrings when I have a need of a new pair. I am an avid brick collector and belong to International Brick Collectors Association. I try to attend at least one brick swap a year to share my bricks and to collect new ones from all over the country. I am currently working on a hugh brick walk and patio. Gardening is another love of mine, my yard is getting rather funky in my yard decorating. I go for the unusaul and people come out my way to see what I have added each year. Last summer was green beer bottles for the flower bed edging and bowling ball towers. I have no idea what I will be adding this coming summer.
