It's been almost 2 weeks since my last post
and may very well be just as long before I publish another.
It's a very busy time at work and that leaves
little or no creative time for moi. Sad face.
My newly acquired vintage bunny is holding the inspiration
for my latest project. The hello card is actually part of Finley's
birthday invitation that our daughter Megan made.
I thought it would work in the top part of my trumeau mirror,
but it was a bit too small. It did, however, give me an idea for
a spring insert to replace my Valentine's button heart.
As you can see, buttons came into play for this insert, too.
I drew leaves and stems on my fabric with an embroidery marker,
and stitched along the line with my sewing machine.
The marker comes off easily by dabbing the fabric with a wet cloth.
The flowers are yo yo circles cut from fabric remnants
and stitched to the background fabric along with the button center.
I attached the fabric to a square of foam core with double-sided
carpet tape and inserted my new art into the mirror frame.
On the shelf below, I filled my silver teacup with malted eggs, and
wouldn't you know, along came a pair of fuzzy chicks in
just the right colors!
I'm trying to think spring, even though we just got
another 8 inches of snow!
I hope you're enjoying spring-like weather!
Thanks for hopping by!
