Stir Crazy and More Scraps

Okay, I've had enough rest, I'm feeling better, and I'm tired of whining about the heat. The weather is suppose to be much better the next two days.  In the mean time, I made another pillow using a vintage tea towel scrap, to which I transferred the lettering and Eiffel Tower image using the Splendid Blender. Here it is on my messy bed.

I made another vintage lace flower.  I was asked to do a tutorial on the flower, but it's one of those things I do very quickly, and hadn't thought about breaking it down.  I may have to have my son take pics while I do it, or do a video tute.  It's really not that hard to do.

I transferred a vintage french book page to this grain sack scrap, and decoupaged it on a basket I've had for a while.

Although I've had fun playing with scraps these past few days, I've been going a little stir crazy.  So, I'm taking full advantage of the cooler weather tomorrow, and getting out of here.  Going to see a movie, and working in the abyss a bit.  See ya soon.
