It was a pleasure and such fun visiting with so many of you this weekend, and admiring your wonderful projects. I needed the inspiration as I seem to be in a somewhat crafting "slump" or as a lot of you refer to it as "mojo". Whatever you can call it, I don't seem to have it at the moment, so it's been a good time for me to catch up on some neglected chores.
I've had several requests now for the card/envie .pdf file. Please check back with me tomorrow and I will have it available for you.
For my project post today, I have an embroidery project. I was asked by a friend to embroider a set of towels for a wedding gift. I actually enjoyed getting back to doing some embroidery. I hadn't been near my machine for a while now, and it was something I didn't have to think about how to do -- the color had already been selected and I'd been provided the names -- that's all I needed! So this was easy. Not my usual to share with you but I hope you like what I did.
I started with some towels I purchased from a General Dollar Store and I found the ribbon among some I already have here at home to add as a trim, so this set cost about $10:
Here's how it turned out:
The found the ribbon several years ago at Costco's and it has such a soft and luxious look and feel to it, and I think it added class to the towels (if you click on the picture you might be able to get a better glimpse of the texture o the ribbon). Now that I I'm looking at it, I think I'm going to add some fringe at the bottom for a finishing touch! I think my friend will like them and I hope you will too.
I've still got some unfinished projects and I'm still pondering on how to complete them -- hope my crafting mind returns soon! In the meantime, I love you all...
I'll be back!
P.S. Don't forget I'll have the card/envie .pdf file available tomorrow!
