Hi all and thanks for coming by my blog! Hope you're having a great day and an even better weekend! Can I tell you how HOT it is out here in Arizona? I think I could fry eggs on the sidewalk if I wanted. I mowed the lawn about 7:30 this morning and I thought I was going to die! I say to my hubby tell, me why we left the coast in California again? Anyway...........I have something new I want to show you that I made a few days ago. I was inspired by Kylie of http://kylieskraftroom.blogspot.com/2011/05/pin-up-girl.html, thanks Kylie.Using white muslin fabric I stamped Tilda With Flower Pot from the Butterfly Dreams Collection with rich cocoa from Memento Ink and colored her with copic markers. Sorry, I don' remember the colors I used. Now mind you, I don't consider myself a sewer person but this really was'nt hard to do. I had purchased some vintage type fabric and lace from Joann Fabrics and the little organza rosets behind the roses from WalMart. It comes in other colors and is sold by the roll. The bow at the top is jute, also from Joanns and sold by the roll. The flowers are from WO and the pearls from my stash. It is 7 inches long and 4 inches wide and stuffed with a polyester fiberfill. I was going to use her as a pin cushion but I can't bring myself to stick pins in her! I want to make more because I really like to way she turned out.
If you have the time, please let me know what you think of my new creation.
Hugs to all!
I have one wonderful husband, 6 great kids,9 fantastic grandchildren and 2 lovable fur babies! I love to crochet, make hair accessories for little and not so little girls and recently found the joy of rubber stamping and card making. I have a passion for romantic/crime novals. Can't get enough of them! When I'm not on the computer, with my family, my job, taking care of the house,cooking something,playing in my craft room or exercising my wanna be green thumb, you'll probably find me buried in my book somewhere with an intrigued look on my face.
