Freebie & a Fabulous Find .....


Here is what happens when combining some Offray ribbon from Wal-mart with part of a freebie from 
"Aiguilles" means Needles

Although i don't think I would use this candle with the ribbon attached -
Wouldn't it be great for decorating one's creative space!

Be sure to take a look at the link for another freebie that uses the word
"Epingles" -
I think there is another candle in my future ......
Have a Great Weekend

Spring Thyme Stash Swap

I recently joined the Spring Thyme Stash Swap from Samplermakers.
This is what I sent to my swap partner:

I stitched and framed the freebie "Simply Heart" by Nicoletta Farrauto 
using Carrie's Creations Hand Dyed Thread "Banana Split"
  
I added my partners initials to the center of the design to personalize it a bit & 
placed ric rac at the bottom of the piece to add some texture to the final product.

 I also stitched & finished a pincushion from the design "Tis Green" by La-D-Da:

And made a little spring bunny.

And I also received a wonderful package:
The patterns also came with threads, linen, and fabric for finishing ;)
I just love everything I was sent-
My partner did a fabulous job !!!!!!

Happy Stitching!!!
