BLUE MOON - Lace and Fibres



Am going to start this post off singing to you.......(just clearing my throat.....lol) "Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own" (Rodgers and Hart) thats it, am finished now.........has this anything to do with the challenge, nah not really, just needed to have a sing........except Gingersnaps is having a Once in a Blue Moon challenge and there are over 100 challenges to choose from, you can find all the details on the blog (just click my sidebar and it will take you there) so pick one that you would really love to do and you are definitely spoilt for choice.

For my DT piece I chose Lace and Fibres. Why...I hear you cry, Netty doesn't do this sort of thing. Precisely, for me that was the challenge......plus I needed to make something for my Mother for Mothers Day that she would love.

Stamped on fabric and padded, the rest you can see is lace and pearls. The Stamp is from Art Journey. The bag I purchased from the Fruit Pixie.

Looking forward to seeing your creations as I know they will be smashing, they always are.

Am out shortly for lunch. Going to Art Class always makes me hungry.........plus Martin is setting up the new TV..........ssssh I can hear him talking to himself....... and its not even out the box yet...lol

Thank you for popping in and have a great day, take care of yourselves and will see you all later. Hugs Annette x
