when things go right for a change...

Don't you love it when you a project in your head turns out well? This was something I had been dreaming of every since I received something similar from Jeanne in the Hippity Hop Easter Swap this spring. While Jeanne's is full of happy spring colors I knew I wanted an outlet to use more aged, vintage tones and some of the collection of old lace, linens and doilies I have been storing. I was a big hesitant with this one but just started sewing along and am super happy with the results. I used a vintage cabinet card in mine because I couldn't find a picture of Hannah that was the right size but this can easily be switched out. Of course anything pretty and vintage looking wouldn't be complete without a touch of old millinery, at least in my book so I topped this off with a posie and velvet leaf that adorned a package from Lori. I can't wait to make more. I feel so much better now that my sewing machine is back out and in use.
