Hello dear friends,
I wanted to let you know that DMC has started their series on crafting studios and organization. Guess what? I'm first up! I hope you'll pop over there and have a look at their blog and the pics of my craft studio and the little tutorial I did. Trust me, the tutorial is no great shakes but mine (you'll see what it is when you visit the DMC blog) turned out really cute. I am just so tickled that they asked me to be a part of their blog and hope you'll enjoy it, too. If you are visiting my blog as a result of viewing the DMC blog ~ Welcome! I hope you'll enjoy your visit and I hope that you'll come back often.
Also, I want to show you a pic of a lovely PIF (pay it forward) gift I received from Sandy! Thank you so much Sandy; I love everything and have already made a new scissor fob for the wonderful scissors you included:
I am so into making these little strawberries right now - fun, fun, fun!!!
The other thing I've done is to make a Kentucky Derby hat for my dear friend Lisa's daughter, Julie. Julie is going to be a freshman in high school this year and she and Lisa and some friends are headed to the Derby this weekend. Lisa's son Eric is a freshman at UK and will also be at the derby! Julie will be wearing a black, white and pink dress that is so cute and I was
thrilled when Lisa asked me to turn her hat into something derby appropriate. What do you think?
Isn't she a doll!?
I know - another post with not much stitching - no point in showing a picture of so little done - but I can show you this.... I stopped by the SA this afternoon on they way home and picked up this framed pic for a song. I love the frame and the girl. The frame is old as is the backing so I'm assuming this little beauty has some age to it. How much, I've no idea. The backing paper is brittle and tattered but all in tact. I love it!
One final picture to share. Here are some of my scissor/flower frogs. The one in the pink and white stoneware are not meant to go together but I thought they looked great. Look for any kind of bowl that will accommodate the glass frog and you're good to go. A lot of the original bowls had three legs, tall stems or deep vases. A marriage of an old bowl or vase with a frog is a beautiful thing. Wouldn't you agree?
Thank you so much for stopping by and for leaving a comment - I really appreciate them! Someone on another blog asked if you remember how it felt when you first started blogging and you'd check to see if you had any comments and how you felt each time your count went up? Guess what? I still feel giddy when I see that I have a new comment and
I really appreciate that you take the time to leave them. Seriously, they're like little gifts and they are the best "awards"!!! Thank you so much!
