When is a seam not a seam?......


When is a seam not a seam?......when it is a little garden... I had this tiny yellow hanky lace that I want to use and thought I I'd incorporate the delicate part where the lace was attached to the linen... But after looking at it for several days I just wasn't inspired so I took the lace off and reattached it flush to the velvet rigbbon... Then I did some random stem and leaves to cover the ribbon. The next step was to add a piece of my favorite lattice lace (I only have about 9" left) Next a few beads here and there and my so-so seam turned into a tiny garden...

Excellent idea Gerry! I have many of those hankies, which I made for my MIL long ago and got back after she died.
I have to remember to use them in my CQ. Thanks ;-)

That is the cutest thing. What a great idea! Where ever did you find those adorable little blue flower beads? Those are just precious. Suzie in Idaho

Wow, you truly are gifted when it comes to Fiber arts. I love everything you do. What a amazing way to use the trim. I am in awe of how well it turned out and hoping I get something that needs to be turned into a garden someday:)

As Usual Gerry you are fantastic! Always a treasure trove of neat and creative things!

Not to worry about the haircut Gerry ....its only hair and it will grow back. I have done that a number of times and now my hairdresser pays me not to touch it! You made me smile ...Marya in CA
