Heart Wall Hanging

My latest wall hanging. I bought the heart shaped doily at an antique store in Corpus Christi on vacation this summer. I layered it with black wool felt on the back and muslin fabric on the front. Then I stitched on a red heart, black tulle and black lace. I wrote out the bible scripture on muslin fabric. I embellished with red and black beads, a rhinestone button. The flower with the feather came from a headband I bought at a grocery store for one dollar, I also bought a white one. I'm sure it will show up on another project in the future.

Rag Rug Purse

I made this purse using the rag rug technique that my friend Heather from The Patchwork Heart uses to make adorable rugs. I used muslin fabric. It is so soft and fluffy, I'm very happy the way it turned out.

I found this lamp shade at a antique store on our vacation. I had been looking for a lampshade for this lamp that goes beside my chair in my craft cottage.......I saw this one and knew it would be perfect. It's kind of stained, but I think that makes it even more interesting. The lamp was brass and I painted it the same color as the lampshade. It has that cottage look.
