...may turn out to be accurate, if this stupid fever doesn't go away!
I haven't posted in ages (since the last IHSW, eep!) because I've been distracted by shiny video games - WoW and Diablo 3, I'm looking at YOU - and I was doing some stitching for an exchange. No fun showing what's been made before the giftee receives it, right?
Well, all has been received safely, so now I can show everyone. :3
TWIN BOOKMARKS HAVE APPEARED! :))))
Since there's daffodil and lily of the valley, I made flower beaded charms to go at the top of each bookmark. They're attached with some chain and a large jump ring is folded up inside. It's pretty clever. Of course, that means I didn't think of it. My wifey did. :p
The pretty fabric is Polstitches Spring linen, rinsed until no more dye came out... I didn't like the linens I got from PS because they were so dark and I fiddled with a bunch of them. I was sad that all the yellow in this fabric was lost, but it turned out to be a great softly colored background for the flowers. :)
And one last picture before they were parted...
I'm going to have to make one for myself! It was hard to pack them up and send them away.
Tomorrow I'll post with what I received in return. :D
