While at a needlework fair recently I discovered Cinnamon Bark and I love it!
I've used it for the background on this tag - it is quite textured and has a wonderful warm, spicy colour.
I wrapped sari silk around the middle of the tag and used a Heartfelt Creations flowers and die set. I added some buttons I had covered myself, as I haven't finished scratching that particular itch yet, so to speak!!
I have also been making ATC's for next week - I managed to make five extra so if anyone would like to swap please let me know and I'll swap with the first five to contact me. I'm hoping it all goes smoothly as I've never ATC'd before but I've been assured by Julia that it is easy peasy!
Talking of Julia, I am linking up withWhat's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and I am also wishing her a lovely, relaxing holiday before her big adventure in hospital. And good luck and a big thank you toJan, who I know will be doing a fab job keeping things running smoothly each Wednesday!
I've been busy making some tiny little embroideries for Spring. I used some eco prints I made last summer and some bits of old tapestry.
They are mounted in tiny little antique photo album pages, only about 3" across.
On my desk this morning is this lovely bundle that my good friend Lynn from One I Made Earlier Today sent me - she sent instructions on how to make the little bow and also how to cover buttons without a button covering gadget. I love the book mark made with that gorgeous batik fabric - thank you so much Lynn!
