Heart challenge and Theme Thursday tag.....




The heart challenge is symbols again this week and this time I chose a star...One of the previous challenges that I missed was white and gold so I combined that idea in with the symbols....I love the roughness of the burlap in with the smoothness of the satin....Theme Thursday is to make a tag. I am not sure if it was supposed to be a Christmas tag or not so I used reds and greens and yellow so it could go either way. The base is a sample of home dec gimp on a card that I sew a tag shape on then cut out so it won't fray...I snagged about ten of these cards in different colors and I think they make the coolest tags. Around the house we are doing the Christmas wind down. The car is out of the ditch, The leftovers are about gone and the kids are still enjoying their toys...It was a nice Christmas for us all...different but nice and who can complain about that?

enjoyed looking at your blog, on what you can do with fabric. Your little one seems like quite a cook and I love all her little aprons you made.

I am in awe of anyone who can make such beautiful works of art with their hands. Sadly, most of my stuff is digital because I am a messer who has no patience.
I love your blog. There are so many scrumptious things to see and I am so impressed.
