Cotton Reel........is it?


Hi Blogger's,

So... now to share my little project with you....... As I was saying a few days back.....I spend my sleepless hours flicking through Pinterest.  There's always so much to see. There are a few issues flying around about the site and I admit it worries me a little how these sites might use the library of information we collect later on!  Anyhow, a  lady found and pinned a project made with the cardboard  centre of a  toilet roll.  As a sewer I loved it and had to have a play...............



I've used stamps and Kraft from AnnaBelle Stamps to add interest to my cotton reel. 
Some die cut roses, Spellbinders of course!  Lace and hand dyed seam binding.  


The flourish is from Die-namics and I punched some leaves using a punch bunch branch. 
A few pearls also ABS and some small roses that have been in my stash for a while from www.enthaily.com.    Hope you noticed I even managed some sponging!!!!!


If like me you enjoy sewing as well as card making why not have a go.....I think this might look good on display.....perhaps amongst some old wooden cotton reels!


Thanks for calling past today......see you soon.......

Forgot to add - my small grandson made me a pair of magic protective cuffs with toilet rolls,so the dragons and things don't get me! All decorated they were too! Still here so they must have worked!
