if you have been following me for the past week, you
have had a few peeks at my progress on this little free hand
stitching project. when i was working on my last page,
i decided that i wanted to add a little pizazz to the story.
keeping with the shop your home theory...i headed back up to
my crafty studio. like most of you, i am a shopping bag
bag for Fall touches!
i added those cool stripes to the mix, with a couple book page
flowers. in the center of each book page posey, i tacked a silk flower...
(extras from the 150 that we made for Chrislyn and Jason's wedding two years ago).
OK...ready to assemble...
mr d and i made a pact that i would never put holes
in the new cottage wall, so i doubled some lunch sacks
and filled them with rocks for my anchor pieces.
i had these cute little clips on hand...
they worked out perfect...
the first page hung in the center...CHAPTER ONE,
and the simply stitched FRENCH
i am really tickled about how the banner turned out!
it makes me SMILE!
just a sweet little touch of Fall...
on our newly created COTTAGE WALL!
