Mono Chic & more

Mono Chic Collection

I think of titles then plan around the title in this case Mono Chic, all black, white and gray maybe with a hint of silver or gold, elegant and timeless:

Rose embroidered and scented door sachets

Black rose patchwork handbag on a silver frame with chain shoulder strap

Getting to be my signature pieces, just love these little framed bags, this one has a dragonfly charm to compliment the shimmering fabric

A matching coin purse

Wild rose black and white silk necklace

A plethora of rose scented hearts

A Birthday card for a relative

Using the free disc of designs from Debbi Moore could not resist this beauty, shaped liked a shell with a detachable bookmark on the back.

A bought gift this year of machine embroidery threads, lazy I know but the cross stitch design I have been planning for the last 2 years is worked on black aida and my eyes ain't what they used to be....., hoping with the advent of lighter days to be able to complete for Christmas????

Another busy creative week planned, visiting Normandy Village Hall on Thursday with Jill to plan and allocate stall space for the 14th May, almost full and going to book the upstairs room for the spa treatments at the same time. Just under 6 weeks to go......
