Make it, day 1

I made a button card display for my mom for Mother's Day this year. The idea was in an old issue of Martha Stewart Living, and the card is pinned to one of Martha's specimen boxes from Michaels.
I used ribbon instead of embroidery thread, which in hindsight was a big mistake. I think it makes the basket look a bit kindergartenish. LOL If you make one, use the embroidery floss.

Onto the birthday giveaway winners:

Winner from day one, the daisy tablecloth, is Kim !

Winner from day two, the plaid tablecloth, is Lisa !

Winner for day three, the ornaments, is Jessi !

Please email me with your mailing address, but do not be surprised when it takes me 3 weeks to get them in the mail. :-)

My trusty assistant is a lot of work right now. I think it's a test to see how long it takes before I start sew myself a blindfold and some sort of ear plugs.

P.S. My internet connection is really dodgy these days. If it seems like I am not around, I am, I just am spending most of my internet cursing the internet for not working!

    I think the botton card looks great with ribbon. It looks sketched. I marvel at your productivity!

    I like it just as it is. And, I rather prefer art to look "child-like" fact, my fave artists: Matisse and Dufy, so you can see. :)

    cute, cute, cute. I like the display box as much as what you put in it. And I agree with you regarding ticks: Ewwww.


Hi there. What say you?
