One thing I have never really explored is stitching by hand. Some of my artful friends are creating a project for someone special and we were asked to stitch a 4x4 square..well I must admit I was somewhat intimidated..but I just tried and as I was trying...I fell in LOVE with the hand stitching! It was really such fun and I realized that the beauty of it is not to be perfect!..each stitch not being the same is what gives it "shabby sweet" character! This little piece has inspired me to take on a fun project using vintage hankies! Isn't it great to GET a gift while GIVING a gift!! Fabulous!
In honor of the Royal wedding, some girlfriends and I celebrated at The British Marketplace with High Tea! I presented them each with a replica wedding ring in this vintage embellished ring box I created! We felt like Princesses!
