Going green ...


Yep, changed my blog again ... somehow that pretty pink was just not me ...
Anyway how are you all? ... Good weekend? 
First off I would like to thank The Shabby Tea Room for my Terrific Top Three award this week ... I was so pleasantly surprised  - given the lovely creations there were to pick from - So Thank You very much!  Today starts a new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room  - "The Delicate Cottage Rose" .... Isn't this just a pretty picture? 


And Squigglefly are sponsoring the challenge - I actually have some digital stamps from here so can recommend them ...
Now it just so happens that yesterday I made a little hanging 'thingy majig' for a sweet lady, to put in her sewing room ... she makes fabulous interior furnishings but more than that - she is a wonderful friend to my dear Aunt.
I think my creation qualifies for this challenge so grab yourselves a cup of tea ( from the STR of course), sit back and get ready for a few pictures ....


See it's all about sewing ...


Starting with a chipboard backing (which I painted first)  I then did a back sheet from an old sewing pattern (just peeking through on the left hand corner) ....




Can you see the pink material with lace stitched on? ... That material has sewing images all over it ...
The little sewing machine is from my digital collection "Sew Crafty" from hero arts .. with cotton on the reel and little buttons, a piece of tape measure, tiny pin cushion ... poppers ...



... Flowers made from old sewing patterns, with a pearl brad and of course glittered ... seam binding, strips of pearls, laid over a heart done with Sizzix and backed with more pattern paper ...


Little cotton reels, tiny scissors that I painted silver, a tied bundle of ribbon, tulle, a glittered butterfly and just peeking out from there are little tags saying (custom made & created for) ...


... roses mixed with white petals and ivy leaves (can't have too many flowers) ... I had so much fun doing this and I know she will appreciate it ... thing is ... maybe I should have done two so that my Aunt could have one in her sewing room ... Yep, think I'll have to do another ...

I thought I could also enter this in two other challenges ... new ones to me.. Frosted Designs (a recipe challenge) and Kaboodle Doodle (use metal) ..

Well that's me done for today ... don't forget to pop over to City Crafter tomorrow for a brand new challenge ... 
Till soon, keep safe ...
