I would like to wish all my blogging friends a HEALTHY & HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope that 2010 will be the best for you and your family. And I hope that this new year will bring us a new passions for our creating.
A picture of this little girl, isn't she so sweet. Thought I would share it with all of you. I found this at a place here in Fort Worth called the Barns. Hope you like it. Also hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
Have a great night and blessed Tuesday. We are suppose to get some more winter weather tomorrow. Just hope it doesn't last. I go to the doctor Wednesday and I sure don't won't to drive on ice.
My Christmas Wish is that everyone could find peace, show love and help our neighbors not just at Christmas time, but every day of the year.We need to remember that Christ came to our earth to save us, not just to rush around town buying gifts to put under that magical tree.We need to wake up each morning and thank God for the beautiful day that he has given us. Thank him for our families and friends, for the health and wisdom he has given to each of us.We need to prais him and be gracious to him in each and every thing we say and do. We need to keep him first and everything we say and do. If every one in this world could do that we would have a heaven on earth to live in. Let's all remember that Christ is the reason for the season, and remember it every day!
I hope every one of you will have a wonderful MERRY CHRISTMAS and A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope this next year will be filled with love and joy to each of you and your families.
A few blogs back I showed you this pic of a piece of CQ that I was making for a new eye glass case. Well my daughter Kim came over last Saturday and spent the day with me and she wanted me to make her a pillow out of it. So as any mother would do I started working on a pillow.This is the pillow that I made for her. As you can see I added some more embellishments. The picture of my mother and dad holding me when I was a baby really caught her eye. She was really close to my mom and dad. She was born on my mothers 40th birthday and was her first grandchild. I had bought a beautiful drape and thats what I made the pillow from and added the lace to the front. Below I will show you a few pics up close.Hope you like the pics. I think Kim will treasure this for a long time. She doesn't have any children so she will probably hand this down to my only granddaughter Payton. I love to make heirloom treasures to pass down to a new generation. Hope everyone is having a great time decoratering,shopping and going to Christmas parties. Hugs, Pat
Today I wanted to start adding some things to my etsy. So I added all this beautiful lace. I tea dyed three of them and the other one was pink when I got it. All of it is bridal lace and wonderful for crafts.
These are some little pansies I have been making. Thought I would let you take a look. I will use them on some of my CQ things probably. I got some new material and I am going to try it on a new rose, I'll post it when I get it finished. Want to start on a purse too. We just want to do to many things.
Hope you enjoyed and come back soon. Hope everyone has a wonderful night.
Today I finished up the salt and pepper shakers that I had been working on. They are some old tarnished ones that I found at a garage sale. I remembered seeing some on Dawn's blog and tried it on mine. I used old photo's and in the other one I made a hand made silk ROSE with leaves. I like the bling in front.
And yesterday I was painting lace. I dyed all of these and lots more with rit dye, but I painted the dye on with a paint brush. I've got more to do but I thought I would give you a look.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
