A wip

Remember how I was in a funk the other day and had lost my mojo? Well I went up to the craft room, had a little tidy around and found this beautiful panel I had forgotten about. I sent a parcel off to Lindsay at Ethel and Edna and she sent one back that contained this panel.

It was just the embroidered letter on the thin material (not sure what it is!) and when it arrived I knew I wanted to put it on some floral fabric. The both fabrics were another gift but I can't remember if they came from Alice from Raspberry or Sharon from Iris and Lily!

And this is what I have done with it so far - mounted onto one floral fabric with another as an background. The lace is only pinned at the moment and needs to be hand stitched on. This will become a cushion and I already have the creamy coloured fabric it will be going onto. It's very different to what I normally do but I quite like that!

Matt put the what nots I got from the jumble sale up in the craft room yesterday but before I can fill them with my fabulous trinkets etc I need to hang the pictures I framed the other day. So that is what I am doing today - expect pictures tomorrow!

I think you've definitely found your mojo again! I love the colours you've used - it will look fab as a cushion : )

OOhh! I did wonder what had happened to that - I bet it will look lovely finished!

It looks pretty! (I can't remember if that fabric came from me or not either!)

hee hee I've been MIA for a while so have only just seen this. The fabric is organza, may even be silk. Can't quite remember.
Glad to see it's been put to such pretty use. I had never been able to think of what to do with it.
Can't wait to see it finished.
