WOYWW

Thought I'd give WOYWW another whirl as I had so much fun last week, you can join in the fun on Julia's Stamping Ground's blog. 


I threw everything together on the coffee table again to show you what I'm working on this week. A spring flavoured card. My image, which only has skin coloured so far, is Summer Breeze by Little Miss Muffet Stamps. You can see her here on her designer, Barbara's, blog - Forgotten Scraps. I've made the paper flowers myself...not sure how many of them I'll use on the card, or decided which of the papers, other than the striped. 

Now below, because I'm never working on one thing at a time (not being able to have all my craft stash in with me), you can see the crocheted roses I've started on. I've some fine gauge crochet cotton, and a few skeins of embroidery yarn. These are the only ones I have as skeins....I cut all my yarns into usable sized pieces ready for the needle...pic at bottom of post.

I only have the one sewn up yet. 


How they look before sewn into a rose. 

My embroidery yarn storage. Strips of card with holes punched down the edge, and the colour numbers against them. When making a project I make a separate punched card and put all my selected colours on it to keep them tidily with the work.

OOhh, love that paper. That spring green is one of my favorite colors. What a good idea to color the skin and wait to see what papers you need on a project. I am not into crocheting, so maybe I will ask my mom to make me a few roses. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

Good morning. I love the colors that will be on the card. I also want to get that image and a couple more of her new images. I learned about her images when I won a couple. Can't wait to see the card. Hugs, dj
