Fun embroidery/bookbinding project I did over the weekend using my hellebore watercolor illustration. I transferred the image to the bookbinding cotton cloth using Iron-On transfer paper from Strathmore and added some embroidered details. I bought these sheets many, many years ago from Amazon, I don't know if they still sell them.
If you want to try your hand at book binding this is a good step-by-step tutorial.

This weekend I made a quilted pot holder using two of my Bookhou's triangles fabric scraps, wool felt for the inside, a tiny piece of Kokka red polka dot fabric and a thin strip of leather. Quick, small sewing projects like this one are so satisfying.

There is nothing I enjoy more than putting together a little gift
& taking my time to make the wrapping extra pretty.

My birdies flew across the Atlantic Ocean and landed at Waitrose Garden in the UK. They've been popping up in the newspaper, on several product tags, packaging and in-store displays. I you see any of them please tell them I said hi :)

Home Sweet Home
We're finally living at Casa Gris! Here's a little peek at my new studio. It's the only room in the house that's in order...still lots of work to do to get the house functioning.
Next room to tackle: the kitchen!
Today is my sweet friend Margie's birthday! Love you M!
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
