On my worktable are two of my (many) UFO's which are patiently waiting to be finished. I just can't work on one project, I have too many ideas that come at the same time. I don't have time to finish them, lol.
The first project is the fabric and lace book that I have posted photos of before HERE and HERE. I'm busy with the spine at the moment. Then I'm going to finish the front and back and then the last embellishments on the pages. I think.
Next is a fabric and lace heart that I'm making.
(Update: you can see the finished heart HERE.)
I will add a beautiful vintage tassel. It will hang from the bottom of the heart.
And then there are so many other UFO projects... Plus things I really ought to be doing :)
Another UFO is finally finished though!
Ages ago I started with this little clutchy like thingie below:
I didn't know what to do with it, so it ended up sleeping in the UFO box. After stitching it I tea dyed the little clutch which gave it a more aged look. Then I had fun making another one, which luckily didn't end up in the UFO box.
Some funny white fabric I bought and never used ended up being a flower.
For the base I used an old crocheted rectangle thingie. For embellishing I used old lace appliques and a piece of a doily, some vintage buttons and another of the beautiful tassels that came from the wonderful shop
Make sure to check out her shop, she buys the most wonderful vintage pieces all the way from beautiful France where she has a cottage. I have a whole string of these tassels, so they'll pop up once in a while I'm sure.
I think the clutches are cute and I declare them finished.
Me was thinking that my blog lacks flowers lately. And I don't mean the fabric ones here. So here are some bright sunny flowers.
It's also been a while since I last posted a freebie.
So here you go, a freebie image taken from one of my antique French postcards. A sweet little girl with a basket of fresh flowers.
Wishing you a beautiful sunny day and many joyful moments!
