ooh. la la cushion


I love pretty cushions here and there, especially here.
this has lots of layers of lace
and I used a quick idea to surround the lady with trims and shabby lace.
Just made a snippet roll and cut it to fit
it worked well and was so fast

a heart for the window


I am creating some projects with a Valentine theme
This window heart is a new idea
It is formed with covered wire, old hand dyed lace
and is 8 inches
The beaded dangle I made catches the light and sends pretty rays of color to my walls.

Of course pink is for love nes pas?

a friendly project to begin after Holiday workshop


I am making a printable banner and a collage to restart my creative juices going again
I made the printables here so you can play with them
I see book pages, a bookmark so we can catch up on reading
and maybe a burlap banner
Here are some to begin with
