~ "Hitch your wagon to a star"

silk roses, a little tutorial:

to make these fabric roses, you will need an assortment of fabric in three different shapes...

fold the rectangle in half first, right side out, & stitch along the open edge, pulling it into a ruffled centre

don't tie off the end, just simply fold one of the smaller squares into a triangle, stich along the open edge & form the first petal, always with the right side of the fabric where you can see it! then continue to mix & match fabric types, & smaller & larger squares, until your flower is as full as blooming as you'd adore it to be!

or you can just stop st the first rectangle & make such sweet little blooms...

i added a leaf

by folding fabric scraps of silk & lace into diamond shapes & gathering one end a smidgen

today i'd like to fill a rowboat with my dreams, & scatter those dreams into the glistening harbour, so they can float.. .out to sea & up to heaven,
ever to abide! 
lots of beautiful horizons to you!!! <3
& her billowing loveliness!!! {Jennifer Collier}

  1. Goodness me! What a gem I've discovered! Thankyou so much for your lovely words my sweet. I too think that your work is divine. It's so fulfilling creating something so special out of lovely ribbons and lace isn't it? Like breathing new life into forgotten remnants of the past. Thankyou again,
