Show and Tell Monday

Show and Tell Monday

Show and Tell Monday Sorry, folks--am having a dickens of a time with this!At Make Mine Pink, we have started a new event, Show and Tell Monday. We show what we have been working on and get a glimpse of people's workrooms and new projects, the new finds from buying trips. It will hopefully be an enjoyable way to share and become more and more part of each others success. I have attempted to get some pictures of my projects for the week. If they show up here, Picture 1 is the top of a "Makedo". It is a very fancy, Victorian style pincushion and hand embroidered with silk ribbon and embroidery floss. Picture 2 is the muslin base for a heat/cold pack which will be filled with lavender and flaxseed. These can be stored in the freezer in a plastic bag for a cold pack or microwaved for a heat pack. This one fits around your neck--heaven is! Each pillow will come with a removeable cotton cover. The cover is washable, not the herb pack. The next picture is of Eye Pillows also filled with lavender and flaxseed. Relieves eyestrain (from all this computer work), headaches, stress and is said to aid insomnia. And just because it works so very hard for me, a picture of my sewing machine. So those are the projects that will be finished today and posted in my Little Pink Boutique and website. Everyone have a wonderful, productive week--Pat

P.S. I can't seem to get the photos on here. I know it's something silly, my pink sisters will get me straightened out, I'm sure! The photos ended up way at the bottom of all the posts, so please do scroll down and take a peek--aren't you glad I haven't been here long, there's only a couple.

Pat,
I so envy anyone with the talent and know-how to sew!! I should have listened and learned when my Mom tried to teach me!

PINK hugs!

Patricia,
Soon you will be doing all the computer stuff just like you do sachet's: Beautifully. I know how it is, I am having to learn every day. It's the hardest work we have ever loved. Right?

Love those eye pillows you are making Patricia! I used to take yoga and the instructor would give us those to use at the end of each class and I always fell asleep! I couldn't help it, I was so relaxed!
