Are you Crafty ??
« on: August 15, 2012, 17:39 »
I've just finished a picture to hang on my granddaughters bedroom wall.    The gingham is scraps left over from her curtains.

Hope you like it :D



I love her posy and little boots.

How wonderful, you are so talented.

How did you do the posy?
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I made the posy from flowers that are sold for decorating brides things favours I'd imagine.

It's in a 12" embroidery hoop.


 It is a lovely room and she loves it.  The wallpaper has a delightful deer motif.  I copied it to make a cushion for her chair.

One of the motifs on her wallpaper. They are about 5cm tall.

Very sweet lady picture.

Just last night I was online looking for circular smocked bonnet patterns. Found one free but it's a bit fussier than I'd care for but suspect munchkin will end up getting it anyway  :D And of course, I can't find a pic to send.

But next year, munchkin will get this one.

And the pansies here have also caught my eye. Just as well her quilt is almost finished.

Those are beautiful, Gloria.

I learnt to do smocking at school but I don't think I've done any since.  I've got two sons and I don't think they would have wanted a smocked dress  :lol:

at the risk of sounding American, you girls are awesome! What wonderful skills you have. I can sew, but have never done any of the decorative crafts like you. lovely
