Margaret's Stump Work
Michele's Cheese Box Cards
My Fernli Designs Lace Storage Shelf
Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I love the eclictic mix of things on a Saturday, pretty much anything goes!
So I have started today's Mixed Crafts with Margarets's piece of 'Stump' Work, I believe that Stump Work is a style of Embroidery where each element of the picture is worked seperately to form little 3D images, in this case the little Dragonfly is in 3D with wired wings, how you got that amount of detail in something so small Margaret amazes me, there is also a little wild rose and some holly,
It is something you could sit and stare at for hours Margaret. Thank you so much for sending it in for me to share xxx
Next up are Michele's 'genius' Cards in a cheese box, that's right they are cards made the same size as a 'Dairylea' or 'Laughing Cow' box, you can then decorate the box and use it to send your card in, it is such a fantastic idea, One of the cards is an easel style card, I have also seen cards that you have attached together with ribbon to form a long string of decorated cards, great for Christmas decorations too.
Thank you so much for sending this fantastic idea to me Michele xxx
Last up is my Fernli Ribbon Storage, it arrives as plain MDF and you construct it yourself, it is so easy to put together, the pieces slot together beautifully.
I decided to decorate mine with me Floral Pavillion papers, using a pretty blue floral on the back and sides and I use pink dotty on the base of the shelves. I used the same paper to cover the ends of the ribbon spools, after I had Gesso'd them and added a coat of white paint. I threaded ribbon through the eye of the spools to help to pull them out.
I decorated around the front of the box with a narrow white lace and a row of pretty pearls, it looks much prettier in the 'flesh', it was hard to capture its beauty on camera.
I hope you like it.
Have a lovely weekend Ladies
Love and hugs
