I just had to write tonight!!! Perri, bless her, has done the most beautiful work on the stitchery and delivered it to me last night.
So today I've made it into a project and I'm loving it......
Just a little sneak peak for you.....
I really love these fabrics from the Ava Rose range, and it's a shame there are no small prints included in it. But that's ok, a raid of the fabric stash has revealed some older pieces that fit in well with it.
I was sewing away today and had to smile as I was putting scraps into the little recepticle I use for rubbish.....it's a Coalport china bowl I got for my 21st birthday many moons ago. How like me to use such a beautiful piece for such an unglamourous purpose!
The old dressmaking scissors were my Mum's. They need a sharpen, but I like to use them. All day today, I felt her presence while I sewed. She was smiling.... :-)
Perri has taken another stitchery element to work for me. By the time it comes back I should be ready to reveal this pattern in it's entirety. Then it will be time for a giveaway or two.....yay!
I've also done some needleturn work today. I love to do needleturn, and find it so relaxing. I've done some step-by-step photos as I went. Is anyone interested in seeing them??
Ok, well I still have work to do even though it is late. Lynette and I are collaborating on some new buttons. It's been a while since Hugo button was created, and about time we jumped back into the buttons. As usual these ones will be soooooo cute. So I'm going to do a bit on them before turning in....
It's been a good day :-)
