I really enjoyed fiddling about trying out all the bits and pieces. In the picture on the left I have used old vinegar bottles with lovely stoppers They are covered in a mixture of Italian corded lace and some vintage lace scraps. I raided my mums old jewellery box for the trinkets.
I have also used the same lace to make make these hearts.
This one I bought at a floristry suppliers and has been sitting around waiting for me to find the right thing to do with it.
I'm pleased with the result.
These were wooden Christmas decorations, I painted them with a creamy white paint then made them as pretty as I could, Do you think I should add more?
Finally I made these three small collages using photos from my family collection, guess who is smiling!
Hope you like my bits and pieces, I'm off now to buy some silk to embroider on as I spent the weekend at a workshop on Indian embroidery with Surjeet Husain, a truly insiprational teacher, but more of that on my next post!
Happy WW to you all!
