It has been a really hard and long week for me. I have been so blessed by my family and friends. I love to create and it is very healing for me. So I've picked back up where I had left off on my sewing and creating. My Mom was one of my biggest fans!
This is my newest Crow Doll. Once again I hand stitched the entire thing. I baked her up real good in my special coffee spice mixture. She smells so yummy!!! I made her a slip out of real grubby muslin and her dress is real prim with vintage buttons. I love this Crow Doll!!! She will be listed in my Etsy Shoppe soon!
I loved making these little shamrocks by hand from grubby green homespun. These will be listed in my shoppe too.
This is a tag I made for St. Patrick's Day from a manila folder and a Beer advertisement I picked up at Sim's store from the beer display. And a flower out of grubby green homespun and a button from my jar.
I signed up for a winter stick pin swap over at Tee's at www.thealteredpaper.blogspot.com. I loved doing this swap! I tried to make mine as prim as I could. My partner Oliva likes snowmen and prim.
These are the pins made to go in the little snowman pocket. I really loved making these pins.
Here are the pins I received from Oliva. They are so pretty.
I have so many ideals in my head to make. LOL I am drawing out patterns for more Raggedy Fran's. So I guess I am mending my broken heart by sewing and creating and going through my Mothers things and photos. I am falling in love with my Mom more everyday.
Thank you so much for all your prayers. XO Love, Fran.
