Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

I am so Grateful to be in 2 Stampington publications this month.
Somerset Studio Gallery Summer 2015
and
Sew Somerset
Summer 2015 where I have 3 articles / art work.
A Contact Gatherer pouch
 to hold  business cards
created with my Woodland Whispers print on the cover.
Practical Pinafore
my new favourite style of apron
with cross over straps. Super comfy to wear and easy to put on and off.
lots of embellishments including a special little
"love note to the sparrows"
And for the garden,
my Live Life Lantern
create using a few  watercoloured prayer flag panels
and stitched together.
All the directions to create, along with needed Tools & Materials are in Sew Somerset.
I wanted to create it so that it could lay flat after Summer when it's time to pack away the garden items.  The two dowels on top criss cross and you simply just take them out to allow the lantern to fold up.
In our garden, the Lilac have all but finished
making way for the Peony to be the star of the garden for a little while.
I've snipped and gathered up the last little bit of lilac and lily of the valley
to bring indoors ♥
hope you are having a wonderful, Thankful Thursday

Inspiringly beautiful and creative projects! I especially love the idea of the pinafore as wearable art. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy;)
