Summertime Daisies ...

 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". 

I can't tell you how happy I am, being more and more creative these past weeks, I have missed it so much! Hopefully it will stay that way for some time now so I will have many more new creations to share with you.

Thank you for visiting me today, here at Todolwen. It is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful, safe and creative day.

    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.
