The Engagement Ring Pillow

Made for a dear friend who got married recently.

"Togetherness Forever"


The text was first created with cotton cord and then tucked in the fabric. 

 Satin fabric flowers with three beads added in the center.

Home Is Where The Heart Is..

...One of my favorite sentences. It makes me miss home and my loved ones.

When the 'Make it Dimensional' Challenge was announced, it immediately reminded me of My Delightful Crinoline Lady. I wanted to create something that portrayed my feeling. But lack of time kept me behind and I could not initiate the project. But then I had to do it any how. 

I bid goodbye to the lady and placed a house and a tree full of double wrap loose french knots. The pink flocked beads and felts are from Itsy Bitsy Store in Delhi.  

A little bit of gardening in the front yard would have been great but time was running out. I started this piece last Tuesday. So, this was all that I could complete in a week. Wish I had a few more days in hand...;)

Raised cup stitch with beads in the center

Here I used needle woven picot stitch for the leaves. To make the trunk I used bunch of treads, wrapped it with brown thread and couched it in the fabric.     

The most tiring part...the french knots. I used two layer of felt and one layer of flexible foam padding to make the tree pop off the fabric.

I will definitely grow a garden in the front yard by adding bits and pieces whenever i get time :)  

But for now, I am linking it to the following challenge :)

Partial views of the project that I am working at present. I am not sure if I should fill the raised cups. What do you think? Should I feel the cups????...:)

A small post....

...about hankies..made for my mom a few months ago. I took the pictures after she has already used it. Thus, a bit of stain is visible. This pattern is from an embroidery book.

The next pattern is by doe-c-doe. I made one in each corner of the hanky.

Will be back soon..:)
