Needle and Pin Books...
May I first begin by saying, "I am not me!". I feel like Alice who fell down the rabbit hole and drank from the bottle. Do you ever watch a pharmaceutical commercial for a prescription drug and say, "Good Grief, I would rather have the illness than all those side effects!"? Well I have now experienced this for myself and I feel like I have lost an entire month of my life. Suffice to say I am now weaning off the horrid drug and hopefully will be back to myself in time to enjoy the holidays.
Mr. C always says, "it is the PRACTICE of medicine and doctors are not experts". Thank you for indulging me dear followers.
At least in my fog I was able to create some little Needle/Pin Books. I wanted to hand embroider each one however time ran out and I am pleased with my results. I hand stitched the butterflies with couched sparkle yarn to embellish each one.
A nice wool felt for the pages and a sweet butterfly pin completes these little books.
Here I have done the same couched sparkle yarn treatment to a couple of cute doggy appliques.
Some red felt for the pages completes these books. No fun little pin here. I think these will make a sweet little gift for someone.
The holiday season is upon us and I see lots of activity happening on your blogs. If I haven't visited yet please bear with me while I get back to being myself. I am inspired by all the Creative Bliss you all are sharing. Thank you very much.
I also thank you for the thoughts and prayers for my Granddaughter's boyfriend. He is home from hospital and recovering. It will be a long slow road but thankfully he has survived a real scare. Sepsis is a blood infection and very scary. This Thanksgiving will be extra special with Grateful Appreciation for life and all of our many blessings. I am still in shock over Paris and Pray for Peace!
May you and your entire family and friends be ever so grateful this season...
