I'm afraid I don't have the time to post any long notes on my Ravensdale
impressions, but I do have one helpful tidbit to offer . Hopefully, I can
post more, after I make some headway on a new house I just moved to and
the new job I started a week after I made the house move.
Karen Lewis, also known as Klew, had a terrific idea for storing active
tissue blades. You know, those things we cannot do without but which we
occasionally get careless in storing and... well, you've gotten the same
cuts I have, no?
She sized two sheets of polymer clay about a quarter to a half inch
bigger than all four sides of her tissue blade. She poked stitching holes
along one side of each piece of clay. Bake.
The pieces were then laidout beside each other. The sides with holes
were facing inward. On top of each piece of polymer, Karen glued little
flat magnets that would attract each other. When the glue dried, she
stitched up the sides of the two polymer pieces, so they formed a little
book that opened. She dropped in her tissue blade on top of one side of
magnets, closed the "book" and the two magnets held the thin, magnetized
tissue blade inside.
Klew, of course, had the front of her tissue blade holder magnificently
decorated, and the stitching string had little beads dangling below.
Cynthia Tinapple spotted Klew's creation and brought it to my
attention. If my description leaves too much to the imagination, Cynthia
plans to do an item on Klew's tissue blade holder in an upcoming
PolyINFOmer, which, hopefully, will include photos I shot of it.
