Hello my dear friends,
I enjoy working with sari silk ribbon more and I always look for new creations to use it with and since I love to make pincushions and needlebooks, why not put these together? That was the thought I had some weeks ago and so I went to work on them right away. Once done I shared my finished pieces on my Instagram page but since my purple baby (laptop) was gone and I still had a few issues with my new laptop, I didn't get to sharing it on Todolwen until today.
I chose my favorite drop cloth and an antique pocket watch case to work with. I wanted the pincushion and needlebook to look pretty but simple and not too fussy. With the less is more thought in my mind, I embellished them both only with some hand dyed seam binding in a lovely shade of green and my pretty white sari silk ribbon and glass beads daisies and that was it and I was very pleased with the way they turned out.
Here they are, my newest needlebook and pincushion set that I named ...
... "Summertime Daisies".
Karen: It is beautiful, Daisies are my favorite flower, I had daisies instead of roses for my bouquet in my wedding.ReplyDelete
You have done a lovely job of creating, the needle book is also beautiful.
Glad you have your mojo back, I sometimes have a vacation from stitching.
Have a great creative week.
