This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

February project for my Eons group.........

I have committed myself to finishing at least one project for my Eons group. The group is called Sewing and Craft corner, its lots of fun with lovely people in the group. So......things did not work out quite as I had anticipated but I did get one heart done. It was not a Valentine project for me but I love hearts so it was a heart project anyway. I ended up doing a small pillow. I did not at first know if it was going to be something I hung on a drawer nob or door. Then I wondered about putting a pocket on the back for potpourri but in the end I just left it plain. I am quite please with the result and I think I want to do a couple more. I did this all by hand. I suppose I could make it go quicker by using my sewing machine. We shall see next time.

I used some silk fabric that I had in a sample book for upholstery (or curtains or something) a very useful thing I picked up at a garage sale. The crochet work is also garage sale finds.

  6. Just gorgeous. I love doing hand sewing. There is something so therapeutic about it. The little pillow came together so beautifully.

    I also noticed you want to learn tatting! Me, too. I have even watched some YouTube instructions. The materials are here. The commitment is needed.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Beautiful! Lucky you to have found that lovely crochet at a garage sale! And to have made such a sweet pillow without having to crochet with teeny tiny thread (can't handle that anymore -- I stick to yarn!).
    Dropping by from Pink Saturday!

  11. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Oh my goodness gracious what a gorgeous share. I love, simply love what you did with the doily in recreating it into this heart. Does this say LOVE or what? I love it.

    I can't wait to see you next one. I love it just adorning the plate as you shared it.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  12. Your pillow is just beautiful!! I absolutely love it. I saw it on Pink Saturday and just had to come. And I'm so glad I did. It looks so intricate and the pink heart is SO perfect for Valentines even though you didn't make it for that. It is something you could have out though all the time to enjoy. I see you want to learn tatting. Me too. But I don't as yet crochet so tatting I know is way down the way for me. Your blog is so charming and I am now following you.
