Well, too bad no one liked the cat with the bird enough to buy it. I guess that will be the first thing in my Etsy shop when the time comes. Unfortunately, I made another big wall hanging with a cat and bird. Bummer! I'll show you that next time.
Today, I'll show you what I did yesterday. I think I told you that my mug rug partner doesn't like raw edge applique, right? Well, tough! Just cause she doesn't like it, doesn't mean I can make it, right? I mean, I don't have to give them to her.....I can give them to whoever I want! Who says I have to give up the whimsy of my life just because of one person? What was I thinking????
So, what do you think of this:
I must say I was thinking of the royal wedding. Her hat actually started off rather plain pink, but low and behold, pinned to my pincushion was two white flowers that I had planned for something else just sitting there staring at me, so wa-la, I added one to her hat and I think it just did the trick! She looks so much more whimsical now drinking her tea with her "pinkie" proper.
Then, I remembered that I had seen a pillow, or something with just plain flowers in solids with straight black stitching, probably on Flickr a long time ago. (I do tend to jump around a bit and get lost in Flickr on occasion and get ideas and then wonder where they come from.) I thought I'd try it:
Looks a bit Norwegian to me but I think it's because of the bright clean solid colors and plain design. ('Course I'm not Norwegian, so what do I know???)
So, that's it! Not very exciting, I know. Sorry about that! I can't sew all the time. In fact today I think I will clean some stuff out of my basement. I have tons of smocking stuff I'll probably never use again, so it's time to donate it to (hopefully) someone who can use it. Have a great day, my friends!!
