is just around the corner and yet again I seem to be playing catch up. Note to oneself must get better organised and plan events 3/4 months in advance, not sure going to happen but maybe, just maybe talking about it and committing to print you may see a new organised me. Now don't all laugh at once!
Valentines Day - A day for love all around the world
Made in 100% wine coloured silk and embroidered with a lace heart, lined in black cotton with an organza bow to tie with a Swarovski wild heart charm.
Awine red silk brocade with a mock bow and diamante heart buckle detail, on a silver coloured frame lined in black cotton. I love the rich colour of this brocade and feel something different form the plain silk.
Said I had been playing with my new machine, this is a machine embroidered brush stork effect initial with apple blossom to decorate and with padding lounged onto a 20 X 20cm artists canvas frame. Backed with lilac felt and has a hanger already added.
A message heart sachet, scented with rose potpourri embellished with a diamante heart and ribbon rose. As you can see I am now addicted to these diamante heart sliders and the other shapes available I love glitter so expect to see more of them in my designs.
Rose Eye Mask
Love this fabric unfortunately as always the case for me can never remember where I bought it but thought a Valentines Eye Mask would look good. embroidered of course with 'Do not Disturb' and just knew those glass hearts would come in useful.
Went to the Fabric fair at the Farnham Maltings today, what a crush and this was only the main hall the other rooms were full with beautiful quilts made by the various local quilters guild.
and what a selection my idea of heaven and what did I buy? Now what will I make, the fabric on the left think Queens Diamond Jubilee, the blues and greens think back to my mood board of beautiful Peacocks. The script fabric, well Mothering Sunday is not far off so watch this space for more details.
