I found these lovely hand embroidered and crotcheted pillowcases in a thrift shop in Missouiri. I got them for $8. I finished this chatalain (one of those thing-ies you hang around your neck to hold your scissors)
a few months ago. I took a class from Nancy Mullman (Cotton Patch--Tulsa, OK) in silk embroidery. She's really good at it.
The red flowers in the watering can conceal a pocket for my thimble.

The birdhouse is a handmade clay button.

Another sideways picture (you should be used to it by now)

I love it!

I love it too. I have never worked with silk ribbon even though I bought a book showing how to's.
Just wanted to let you know I got my giveaway prize today. Thanks so much. I appreciate you letting me play and along. They are beautiful fabrics. I will be doing a post about it sometimes this week.
