Golden sunshine


My friend Barbara came 'round to play the other day. We are organising a card swap circle, just to get some nice post, (if anyone is interested in joining just let me know) and made a pop-up card together. She also bought round some gold and red organza she'd been given .....how lovely! It took about 10 minute for Will and I to find some yummy colour fabric and twiddle it through the embellisher. Because we only used a cotton underneath the organza is not firmly attached but step two is to secure it with some hand stitching and beading. We had such fun.
(this photo has not shown the true texture of the piece- here it looks like the blistered skin of some space lizard in an awful sci-fi film!)



The title for this came to mind and then so did the rest of the little rhyme;




'Golden sunshine kiss your eyes, smiles await you when you rise, hush little baby don't you cry and I will sing a lullaby'.




Really like this and would like to find a way to get it on something for one of the many new babies my friends are expecting.

I still can't get the hang of this embellishing machine idea .. it's like looking at the universe through a grain of sand ... so simple, and yet sooooo many possibilities ..... too many to think of that the mind boggles out of control!
