I have loads of things to share today. I spent yesterday afternoon photographing our newest projects.
First are my Crazy Quilt Trinket Boxes:
I just love pink & green together! So soft and feminine!
Next are my little PEEP EGGS:
I hand-painted some paper mache eggs, added vintage lace, string pearls, some forgetmenot flowers and glitter! They're sitting in a little nest of moss.
I also made a couple of little grapevine wreaths for Spring:
I used vintage greeting cards for the background scenery. And of course, everything I make has to have glitter on it!
Mom too has been busy as a bee. She made 3 Puffy Pincushions. These are the combined efforts of mom & dad really. Dad made the wood bases and then mom did the rest:
I don't know how mom came up with the idea for these. I love the aqua one. Mom asked if I could spare 3 vintage mother-of-pearl buttons for this project. Ha, ha, ha!!! I told mom I have enough vintage buttons to last through to my next lifetime! Of course, it doesn't stop me from buying more.
And here is mom's Bird On A Victorian Box:
Isn't that pretty? It's purely decorative and just so sweet! Mom got the idea from those little Victorian images of boxes filled with flowers with a bird sitting on top.
So those are our newest projects! I have more here to photograph but I ran out of steam yesterday. I'll share those things over the weekend.
For today, I'm heading over to mom's to play! I have a ton of projects there that need finishing. Lot's of Easter and Spring things. It really helps to get through the Winter months by making Spring things.
And speaking of Spring, I am planning on starting Block #8 of my Garden Crazy Quilt this week. I've really done well with my timing. Only 2 blocks to go on my Winter project and a month left until Spring. Well, according to my calender, Spring starts on March 1st but that's my calender!
I received a lovely package of goodies from Judy S. yesterday so I'll share photos over the weekend. Pretty things! And I want to leave a quick note to Froggy, please drop me an email so I have your email address.
Ok, it's time to get myself together so I can go to mom's. She has Hazelnut Decaf Coffee. Yum! On my way there, I plan to keep my eyes open for Robins!
