Good morning friends. It's a cold "single digit" morning here ... which makes the house feel so cozy. I love early morning. The family is still asleep so I have some quiet time to share with you.
The challenge sketch from Get Sketchy is fabulous! I've commented before on the joy of a simple sketch ... it gives direction without constraining your creativity - this one is another perfect example. The color combination comes from the ladies at ColourQ - they never disappoint and once again have provided a beauty to inspire us.
The layers of lace, a blue stiped print and Daffodil Delight Pom-Pom Trim did not go as I had intended. To stay true to the inspiration colors (I was missing Daffodil Delight), the pom-pom's were added - my first time working with this type of trim. Hence, the "layers of detail" ... that's all I'll say about that (thanks for your understanding). How about some guidance - do you sew them on, glue them or tape?
I dyed some seam binding and wrinkled it to perfection. An old fabric flower layered with a crocheted Fleurettes II detail and a Pearl Jewel tops my bow.
I have a lot to learn about working with pom-pom trims. I'm sure you'll see more of them in the future - but only after I have them "under control" - so to speak. Have a wonderful day ... I hope to be back with a second post later!
