These past days have been wonderful. First, a visit to the zoo brought us up close to our feathered friends when we stepped inside the new parakeet house. Having budgies as pets at home, it was exhilarating to enter their world. Beautiful colors flying everywhere with songs of joy filling the air ... it was magical. Next, my daughter presented her crocheted apple sweaters (each with a bright red apple tucked inside) to her teachers ... sharing the moment with her younger brother who stepped in to give them to his teachers too. I was so proud of her knowing how much work she put into each project. Later, a quick visit to the bookstore to pick up the latest Somerset turned out to be more than expected. I found a new publication "Crochet Traditions" - filled with motifs, projects, patterns, and so much more ... including a bit of history. I read it cover to cover, staying up late ... enchanted by every page. I hope to share some new projects and patterns with you soon.
Today's post is inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. It's all natural, neutral in color, and sooo romantic. I love it. I began with Sahara Sand cardstock and layered on neutral printed papers. I've always wanted to try stamping on muslin and creating ribbon, this was my opportunity to try and I think it fits in beautifully.
Some brown and white baker's twine is tucked beneath my handmade vanilla flower along with a sweet tag created with Pennant Parade. My obsession for creating doilies continues - still loving their delicate texture.
Each pennant is a combination of linen and lace made to hang on a string of hemp held in place with two sweet miniature clothespins.
Back to the inspiration image. Nice and neutral .... and gorgeous.
