I hope you are all having a lovely weekend...the weather here yesterday was beautiful and we spent the afternoon in the garden with the hens..I took a few photos and have posted them at the end.....I even put in a bit of time in the Craft shed.
You may remember that I said I had decided to stop taking commissions - I've been doing them for a long time and was getting a lot of requests - but - they all take so much time! I did decide however, that I would still make them for a few long time special customers as long as they give me a lot of notice and they have been very good about that.
This one was a request from one of my office volunteers, for her friend who loves sewing and has just bought a new machine.
I had some embossed card (Spellbinders hearts MBossability) left from another project, so I decided to use this to die cut the sewing machine, which is a Sizzix die..as are the cotton reels. I wound string around one cotton reel and some tape measure ribbon that was in my ribbon box.
To finish I tied crushed ribbon around the bottom half of the card and added a button, twine and two pins.
I really enjoyed making this card...it was a really enjoyable 'theme' as I enjoy craft sewing too.
Here are the photos of our 'girls'...
|"Now what mischief can we get up to next?"|

|"Hah, another pot to explore,wonder what goodies I'll find in here?"|

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll be back next week - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Love and Hugs,
