A Birthday Gift For My Mama
My parents don't own a computer so it is safe for me to show you the pillow I work on for her birthday today.
I cross-stitched the 'K' a few days ago and backstitched it to a vintage piece of linen.
All the material I used was gathered here and there from my fabric stashes.
I didn't have to buy anything.
Sorting through satin and velvet ribbons
Looking for just the right trimmings is one of my favorite steps of the creative process.
A beautiful work space is inviting to inspiration.
I'm ruching a long piece of satin fabric to run the length of the pillow.
Today I discovered the most awesome needles in the world.
I will never use another needle for large embellishments.
The small Daisy Chain flower fabric in the corner was cut from a worn tablecloth that a friend brought back from a Paris flea market for me!
I have been using it very sparingly.
Four, FOUR, baskets of clean laundry and a stack of folded clothes waiting to be put away.
Weekend chores await.
