Marie keeps me sane and makes me laugh. I laughed all the way home one day when, while at her house I asked her for some pins. She´s not a sewing enthusiast and after rummaging through drawers, opening tins, and peering into boxes and containers, she produced a total of four pins, one blunt, two rusty and one bent. I´m going to make her a pin keep one day.
Here are some photos of a tissue holder house that I made Marie on her request a couple of years ago. The petition wasn´t so easy because the item was for her brown and beige bathroom and she only wanted those colours.
I added a lot of silver beads and sequins because I liked the contrast with the browns. Here are a few close ups.
Apart from her image peering from behind the curtains of one window, I think she liked the end result.
In my last post I mentioned making a table runner and some ornaments. Well I made a heart shaped template and cut out a few hearts for the ornaments.
Then I added some more pretty green ones too, and embroidered a few tiny designs. The next step will be to mix and match.
I´ll leave the mix and match step for my next post. Thanks for visiting.
