Sewing themes and Fleur de Lis
Another week gone and am now convinced that the days have less hours in, either that or I am getting slow in my old age. Been a busy week not so much from the crafting front but making up flat packed furniture with DH offering to help!! that was when the problem started he used brute force to knock in a panel pin in the back and it went through the top of the book case, at least too tall for me to see the top but he can see it so he may remember next time leave well alone!! and let me get on with it on my now, just typical.
Anyway back to the bookcase, so pleased with it problem I now have space for more books so Amazon watch out, my wish list has already grown expedentially and needs to be emptied into the shopping cart. Still not finished the big declutter but will get there wanted a break to make a cushion cover for a relatives birthday in April, I know early but love to be organised on the gift and card front. I hope she likes it made in silk fabric, colours of creams and beige with embroidery of a sewing theme.
Fleur de Lis Earrings
Have found the most delightful machine embroidery site of designs that are amazing and these caught my eye. I love lace and the fleur de lis design so what better than to follow the suggestion of earrings, hanging on a silver ear wire with a crystal added for some sparkle. Sonia Showalter Designs is a positive heaven for machine embroidery enthusiast and cannot wait to try some of her other designs.
