I am not sure if it is the cold weather we are experiencing this year or the fact that christmas is
only a few months away that I find myself drawn to the colour RED .
Well these are a few new things that I have been making.
Christmas Angels (cotton crochet,tule,beads, ribbon and a whole lot of patiences)
Felt Hearts,stuffed with love and finished with croched flowers and bead.
Cushion covers embroidered birds in cages, still waiting for their inners.

Too many ideas and not enough time:{

Passionate about sewing

This was one of those pictures that will be hard to part with !
So I am doing a second one quick.
Loved all the different techniques,textures and mediums used.
Probably because I grew up with a mom who sewed all her
life, these things are very familiar to me.
