Scrap Happy Time. Time to share the thoughts and treasurers created with scraps/left overs in my craft stash.
Hosted by the dynamic duo Kate & Gun. All those mentioned in the links below have Fab blogs to check out.
Time to create a block book. A large piece if sewing notions fabric for the body, and left over Pink breast cancer binding from my girly girl quilt. I have been saving batting off cuts and finally have enough. The page separator are usually interfacing or muslin, however I had the taffeta left over from my debutante outfit taking up valuable space, and in need of purpose. My overlocker needs to come out of hiding to neaten up the inserts.
I have included a picture of my gorgeous Mum and I at my Senior Deb Ball, in my 3 piece taffeta suit/dress. I decided on a top with peplum, floor lenght shirt and a 2nd knee length skirt to change into later in the evening. Ahh the good old days, Perms and smiles around.
Ploughing through my embroidery draw, a quilters poem stitched ???? Years ago. Perfect for the cover. Experimented with a flange adding a pop of green. Then dabbling in my first machine embroidery quilting (poorly) adding adding some decorative stitches. Not sure if i will unpick and try to straighten it up plus I still need to applique the poem on as I didn’t want to machine it.
Please hop over to my fellow blogging scrappers listed below to check out their stunning creations.
