Diggin' through my cross stitch crap and found this jar topper with blue ruffle. Oh fuh Gawd. Back in the day, country decor crazed folks would have loved to see a stitched cow or some such barnyard critter. Um, no. Instead I attempted to jazz it up with blue beads and taught myself a little hide-the-thread inside the ruffle trick. Those blue beads are from Dori's installation"people give me stuff" stash.
How many is too much?
Heck, I don't even carry tissues but here is a whole mess of 'em! Just one more dang thing that employs small scraps of fabric. Thanks, http://www.crafster.org/. If you are my friend, you will probably be offered a tissue cozy. I apologize in advance.
NOTE: the middle fabric becomes the bottom outside
People give me stuff!
Kay knows I love me some boxes of sewing notions and junque! Looka! Vintage paper dolls, buttons galore, a Singer sewing machine replacement belt, keys - caw, caw, shiny stuff!
If your mom or grandmother has a drawer full of unused sewing stuff, give it to me! I will glady employ it on a future project. Mind you, it sometimes takes a while but it eventually I will find the perfect use the trinkets and trash.
