Happy Mother's Day
Well, nothing special actually happened in my home. I got a kiss from my sons and a scream of "Happy Mother's Day Mama"..:D But that was really sweet. Then he told me that he made a card in school but Miss kept it..:D (let's see if today he brings home the card)
Anyway, Finally I have finished and sent the SPRING SWAP (yay!)...but it was 2 days late..:D
So, since I've sent them out I guess I can show off (*_^) abit here..LOL.
I made this Ribbon Embroidery for Shean. I learnt ribbon embroidery from a book and off course You Tube. Thanks to all those creative people around the world who's generously sharing their knowledge.
I hope you like it Shean..:)
(please Ignore the stick..it's borrowed from my other wall hanging :P)
And I made this one for Lolo. I have this idea for a long time in my mind : To make flower garden using Indian mirror work embroidery. I made the rough drawing in my sketch book and started doing it. I'm not sure in the beginning how it will turn out, but it seems okay to me. I just sent it as it is, so that (I thought) she can do something about it, such as bags or cushion covers..:D ~ just a thought.

Now I'm back to my smocking projects..:D. I was really envious of people who's lucky enough to own a pleater, but after I read Marie Grace's BLOG, I guess hand pleating is still better...ehm..mainly because now I can't afford to get one...it's more that 200$..(eeewwwww!!). Anyway, here the most recent frock I've finished:
Thanks for looking & have a nice day
