More Projects and a Wonderful Surprise

I had planned a post today to share my new fabric projects with you all - but before I go on with this I just have to start this blog post about something totally different.
As I got home from work today, an unexpected parcel was waiting for me in the mail

The most beautiful wrapped parcel came from my friend Alisa
who blog over at Life is a beautiful place to be

She had send me one of her beautiful Journals.
Just look at this - and in the most lovely colors.

decorated on the inside with old ledger paper.
The perfect journal to gather all my ideas in one spot.

Oh -I just love it.
And the flower on the parcel - it´s a brooch...
Isn´t it just wonderful.
Thank you so much Alisa
Make sure you pop over to Alisa´s shop
She has some very pretty journals among
other beautiful stuff in her shop right now


So - more new projects.
Remember the fabric I bought a few weeks ago..

I´ve finshed some more projects with that.

soft and pastel

pincushions decorated with lace and buttons

and these little ones

with lace and buttons too

and tiny tea dyed tags with rubber stamps

sweet faux cupcakes

these will apprear in my shops as soon
as I get them listed along the way.
some time ago I bought a big faux flower
in soft hvide, cream, yellow colors.

I took of the flower leaves and added them to
a shape cut out from an old book

sew on a button in the middle and added a string

and got this lovely garland.
Isn´t it pretty.
I have more in the making and these wil be added to the shops as well.
Oh - and I have some GREAT new to share
but this will have to wait a bit.
Have a lovely and creative day

Lucky girl! Tina I love what you have made from the fabric they look fabulous, especially the pin cushions...I think I am developing another addiction.
P.S. I have a feeling that I know what your news is.
