We are winding this project down and have a final mailing date of June 2nd. Less than one week from today. I'm afraid I'm not giving Amy much time to work on her pages for Cathy.
Cathy's theme for her book is INSPIRATION. I started in my usual fashion and found quotes I love that fit with her theme and embroidered them.
In her book, Cathy left for us a long list of things that are inspiring to her. I loved that. It was very useful in getting started with her pages. With her list in mind, I gathered up lots of ribbon and pink and green and turquoise and polka dots and a lock and key and buttons and images that fit things that are inspiring to her. I wasn't able to incorporate all this into her pages as I had planned so they became part of her swag instead.
Cathy is inspired by nature, by trees and flowers...
Everything is hand stitched using wool felt and embroidery floss in her favorite color scheme. Here is the final spread.
It was not my intention, but I laughed when I saw that it looks quite similar to the pages I made for Mimi. Next up is Amy's...I'd better get to the stitching.
Another project that kept me busy last week was Peanut turned four. We had dinner for twenty on Sunday and I made his very favorite cake. Chocolate.
It was delicious.
