Hello from the Land of Oz.
We were blessed to have survived the terrible storms all around us last weekend!!
No damage at my home, however there were several area's very torn up in my city.
On a happier note, I am sharing some photo's that were inspired by a favorite blog, http://indulgeyourshelf.blogspot.com/. Laurie posted some photo's of needle cases and sewing articles that reminded me of the items that I made a few years back.
Brenda, at http://www.cozylittlehouse.com/inspires me with her self-discipline making all the beautiful pillows, towels, etc. Beth is a friend I met at Bird Song last year; http://bethleintz.typepad.com/gathering_dust/. She loves to hand sew and does a fine job!!
The Hussif I made, is a little book made out of silk dupione and then embellished with gathered treasures. The lace was overdyed as well as the silk ribbon. All the the items I have pictured, I made at Attic Heirlooms in Wichita, owner is Julie Craig. She is an amazing artist and teacher.
I found this blog interesting as well; http://secretleavespaperworks.blogspot.com/2010/02/hussif-victorian-sewing-kit.html
I hope you all enjoy my little post today. I sure enjoy visiting all of you and peeking into your life just a little.
