I haven't fallen off the face of the earth,
I did manage to get a few
small sewing projects in these past couple weeks.
I little while ago,
I won a giveaway from my friend, Stephanie, of
She shared some lavender
and fabric to make this cute little sachet.
I have it in my 'special' drawer. :)
It makes me smile every time I open the drawer.
My sister and I have a very good friend
who has a daughter we love to death!
They thought it would be fun to do an ornament exchange.
I had Emma
(our friend's daughter),
so it wasn't hard for me to come up with an ornament for her.
I looked through my stash and fussy cut a piece
from Simple Life by Tasha Noel
and took some embellishments
and a pretty aqua fabric and made this
The four bells represent each of us 'girls'.
Here's a little close up for you.
I stamped her name on it,
in case she ever forgets what it is.
(you know how it is when you get older)
I got the idea for the ornament
from some Zakka pin cushions I made
using linen and Penelope by Holly Holderman
(I am so in love with this fabric!)
I used crushed walnut shells to fill
the pin cushions.
I love those so much better then
the stuffing you purchase in bags.
They have a much better feel to them.
Here's another look from the other side.
And I'll be dipped,
but I made another Anita Vacation Tote
(like the one in the picture in my blog heading).
I'll post pictures of that later this week,
I didn't want to overload you on all this crafty eye candy.
So there wasn't much sewing these past few weeks,
but it was something.
Sometimes those quick little projects are all it takes
to keep a smile on my face and the hair in my head.
(you KNOW what stress can do to a person's hair!)
More to come later in the week!
Thanks for stopping by!!
