ruffly, gathered lace...
makes anything look pretty...
I was taking pictures for this post and had it all in a jumble on the burlap,
when I thought it might look pretty gathered in to a heart shape...
now I want to tack it down and make a pretty picture of it
a friend asked me to make her one of these hearts, inspired by Terri of Whimsicals
with the sweet scent of lavender
and an order for three more
I do love making these things - playing with different fabrics and threads, all in little bits
for this one I used a small piece of my treasured diamond-textured fabric and stitched tiny french knots at each intersection - texture on texture
finding the palest shades of a colour
all the Wishing Stars but two were mailed out today and these last ones will go Thursday
I had hoped to send them two weeks ago and then life got in the way
but they are on their way now
and it is my sincere wish they work their magic and bring your word to life
they were a wonderful labour of love for me, all those words, inspiring me with each stitch...
and now I'm thinking of my next project, and wondering how long my worktable will remain clear....
