Another Snippet Roll

I told you these were addictive.
When you go searching through your stash, and find bits of lace, trims, small appliques, etc, put them in a box and mark it for Snippet Rolls. It will be easier to pick and choose if they were me.

So this one has a bird theme.

Go through your stash and enjoy!

Snippet Rolls are addicting

Well my friends, just a quick post about my newest projects. I discovered the world of Snippet Rolls. I saw a photo then made one, then two, and started my third. They go hand in hand with crazy quilting because you use scraps and bits & bobs, and you can design them however you want, no rules. I did have to order some vintage thread spools, but I had everything else stocked. I'm sure you will find you have most everything you need to make a few as well.

I did some browsing and found my friend Liz, has bags of lace remnants at a great price in her etsy shop GypsyFeather

Many use random lace pieces and such in a miss matched, helter skelter method, but I prefer to tell a story, a theme, which is easy to do with this project. My first was for a dear friend that I thought would enjoy one.

The second was for another sweet friend who I know enjoys the beach. I also made a bag, which I didn't know was part of them until I did more browsing.

The one I'm starting now has a garden theme. Then I have three more to do before I make myself one. Check back in a few days, I'm sure to have more to share.

Enjoy your moments.

New Year

Happy New Year to all of you who visit my blog. I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed New Year. I wish you all the best of all you love, treasured friendships to warm your heart, stash to keep your hands busy, and sweet dreams filled with lavender whispers and finding that one special item that makes your heart do a somersault during your shopping jaunts.

I'm slowly making my way back into the studio, so hopefully I'll have some creations to share. I made a few vintage lace and lavender filled hearts with a touch of silk ribbon embroidery to test the waters. I've sent out several, but have some to stuff and put in my etsy shop which I hope to fill with goodies as I do another cleaning of the studio. Like most of you, I only use certain stash items, so the rest must go because it overwhelms me and I feel guilty knowing it will never be used.

On a happier note, my beautiful mother celebrated her 88th birthday this month. We had our traditional Red Lobster lunch and enjoyed a strawberry Daiquiri together and it was soooo refreshing.

I made her a collage of some of our fun jaunts. 

Well that's a little sampling of what I've been doing. I hope you are creating and enjoying your moments. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I will be back soon. I want to share something fun from mom's birthday.😉
