I got back into the sewing room this weekend after a long day
last week making curtains and ice packs for my sons treatment room
at the football club.
I must say I enjoyed the praise I received from him for my efforts
But you know, there's nothing like making the pretties instead,
especially when it's something like the little heart cushion
And a wreath for my bedroom
I used the little rosettes and pearl buttons given to me by a dear blogger friend Doni
from Faith Grace and Crafts
I received them as a give away gift from Doni
along with lots more pretties.
I just tore strips of satin lining I had in my stash
and tied them around an old embroidery hoop
along with some tea dyed torn curtain fabric.
Kerry Lee,my daughter gave me a plain wreath to cover for her
This is her favourite flower and more to her taste than the above.
She loved it,and has it on her front door.
I just tied on some scraps of Hessian (burlap) I had left from a previous project
A little floral vignette of bottles in the Sun room
The beautiful blue faceted bottle was a steal at $2
I love the way the light shines through them.
The roses are from my front garden and smell so lovely
I am joining the blog parties listed on my right side bar this week
I always enjoy seeing what others have made
Join me too
