- a friend stitched me Chatelaine's Mini Mandala 1.
- another friend sent me a few pieces of quilting fabric that were asian in flavor.
- while at Michael's, hubby found an oversized Martha Stewart scrapbook measuring about 20in x 20in in the clearance aisle for $12. It was beautifully made, with waxed, translucent linen paper between each sheet. He thought it might make a nice display album for my stitched pieces as we're running out of walls to hang them up.
I've been toying with the idea of marrying them together but it wasn't until Fern's finishing that the idea really took shape.
I finally had some time to run to Michaels for the ribbon needed for my "Fabric-Mat Finishing Tutorial." I found a roll of electric blue one that went perfectly with the blue beads of the Chatelaine and the water in the fabric. Then, whilst wandering the aisles looking for glue, I chanced upon some gold metal-balled pins!
An idea is brewing in my mind, and I don't know if it'd work out, but I thinking on using the pins to decorate the sides, as an extension of the gold beads in the stitching.
I'll work on this tonight and see if I can get a Tutorial post up tomorrow. Stay tuned! :D
