SPRING HAS ARRIVED!!!
May here is blooming with Dogwood trees everywhere and azaleas are also in full bloom. I love all the colors!
January started us out in a sad mode, with having to put Mikey and Goldie down on the same day. Both were 19 1/2 years old, brother and sister. Now have joined Sonny at the Rainbow Bridge. First time in 50 years we have no pets in the house.
Here is Sonny, Goldie and Mikey, all siblings.Now in Rainbow Heaven and we missed them dearly.
Sonny lefts us February 28th, 2015.
February was a month of celebrating for us, even while we mourned losing our three buddies. We bought our house on February 14th 2015. And I went through breast cancer surgery February 14th, 2020. So our emotions were all over the place that month! Cancer Free today!!!
After having a flat space in my creativity...I decided to get back in by finishing several UFO's!!! So below is one I started a while back. The original fabric was bought back in 2005. I just fell in love with it and had to have it. I got it at Hancock Fabrics, which has closed in Idaho. I just love the Jewel Tones of these colors!
I first started this project to be a tote bag. So I made a square to be front and back. I used the colors in the original piece to match other fabrics to.
After adding some embellishments, I then proceed to the stitching, adding beads and buttons.
With stitching finished, it was time to border and back the pieces. I finally decided to sew them together and make a hanging out of it instead of the tote bag. I felt the embellishments might get knocked off as a bag.
How the front turns out, with a Metallic/Rayon thread from Sue Spargo! It's got sparkles!
And here's the back...
