This post bounces around a bit chronologically, but I thought you might like to see a few of the different things I created.
This was another of my recycled denim projects and was created for a throw on the back of our couch. I really loved making this, so much so that when DH suggested that maybe it would be nice to have two smaller ones for the backs of our respective recliner chairs I was happy to oblige.
***UPDATED TO ADD - the pattern is free from HERE and an updated version is HERE.
From 2011 - another of my recycled denim bags.
In 2010 I took a wonderful online class (my first) from Carole Brungar where we created a fabric journal. I, of course, being an over-achiever made one twice as thick as the original. At that time we were planning to sell our house and move to the apartment and I wanted to have a memory book of our garden. Each of the pages featured a photo of one of our flowers. That was also the year that our garden was featured on the local garden tour so there was lots to celebrate.
The photo below shows a closeup of one of the pages. If you embiggen it, hopefully you can see some of the details and can also see the table that my DH created using an old sewing machine base with a cement top. We scrounged an old wooden rocking chair to complete the scene (wouldn't dare have sat in that chair though, because I suspect it would have fallen apart!). We set it up at the back of the garden during the tour and many people commented on how pretty it was.
Today the quote is from Max Lucado.... "Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers, "Do you like it? I did it just for you"
