Do you remember this lovely project box arriving last week
from THE LINEN GARDEN
It was filled with treasures and ideas to give yourself permission
to spend time being creative and has the appropriate name
"This Hour Of Mine"
After fiffing and faffing with the beautiful contents for ages,
all of which had a delightful floral scent of hawthorn and briar which I got
a bit hooked on, I set to thinking what I could create.
The fabric pieces had bondaweb on the back to make cutting
out the flower shapes easier, so I set off doing that
Next I did a line of running stitch up the length of a piece of ribbon and
pulled it into the shape of a flower and adding the cut out shapes
and bits of lace
I ironed pieces of the bondaweb backed fabrics to this
little clipboard and built up a collage of ribbons and laces on top
I ironed some of the cut out flowers to a bottle vase, stuck it onto the board
and added the little embroidery that a friend sent me
And here it is up on the wall in my workspace
Hope you like it.
