Christmas is just about wrapped up. I should get the last things done tomorrow and then there will be five days to finish up this project. And high time, too!
Since June (!) I have been planning a fabric memory book to give my Mom. She knows I'm working on 'cause I had to raid her photo albums (er, boxes!) to get most of the things for this book. Then I rashly mentioned Christmas! Crunch time!!!!
I have three pages DONE! Fourth page was so-o-o-o much fun to do that I have to show you some of it. Just bits and pieces, but it's the fun stuff.
I printed these wedding photos on silk and then stitched them to the background fabric. That ribbon on the large picture was a real pain to stitch. I used the sewing machine and I know it would have been faster to do it by hand! Live and learn. I haven't done silk ribbon embroidery for quite awhile and forgot how much I enjoy it. And dressing up the corsage on the small print was so easy and looks so great!
Gotta get working if I want to finish this book, tho. Now, if we should happen to have a snow storm on the 24th . . . . But I can't hope for something like that!
