Hot Air Balloon Pillow and Chamomile Tea
I've been wanting to embroider a hot air balloon for some time now and was finally inspired by the dark gloomy days (and news) to do something bright and colorful. I gathered a handful of the most colorful fabric scraps from my scrap drawer and surrounded the embroidery with them to make a little patchwork pillow. It was a fun project and brightened my day.
I also stocked up on some towels over the summer on my various visits to shops here and there. Now I'm beginning to embroider them with some tea inspired designs. I love these Dunroven House towels. I found them at a quilt shop and bought three of them and now thinking I need more. They are really nice, hightly recommend them!
Some more fabric scrap ideas for you. Save those small pieces! I save all mine that are at least 2" square. You can do something with them :) I made some little pincushion scissor fobs and embroidered little designs on them, attached a little ribbon. They work well as a little pincushion too. They would also be cute as knob ornaments or gift package ornaments. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday and may peace fill your heart!
