for Dovey

Inspired by Sleepytime Girl, I made up this blanket for Ophelia. I have been wanting to make something for her & was reminded of the little book I made for Nate. Not having much time I whipped up this little tag blanket. I wanted to add a personal touch to that sweet yellow polka dot cotton. It looked like a nice canvas for embroidery. I thought that a Dove was in order.
I think she likes it.....

Although I think she likes her brother more. He was the wizard behind the curtain, who got her to smile during these photos.

finished business

In my thrifting travels I find lots of unfinished projects.* Cushions, quilts, cross stitch. I always ponder over them, whether or not to complete them for my own home, or will they just sit unfinished, waiting for me to find the time...
This above was unfinished crewel work cushion. When I picked it up 4 years ago, it was almost finished....I think the frog was the only piece left incomplete and than sewing the cushion and attaching the trim. Yet, it still took me that long to finish this project up! & in all honesty, it may have taken me all of two hours of work to complete. So here is someone else's unfinished business looking so nice on the couch. Its for Milo, who long ago asked me for it....Next up, something for Nate & Ophelia.

*(As I begin to clear out the studio, many of these have emerged & if your so inclined, leave a comment & I will get one to you !)
