The challenge team and design team do amazing work and I am thrilled to be in their company. The prompt for this week is …
Of course Valentine’s Day came to mind but the project I initially thought of was one I have been putting off for over a year. My grandmother passed away last November and I was able to keep some of her knitting and sewing supplies. I never planned to learn to knit or sew but wanted instead to use her needles, patterns and yarn scraps on some sort of page or altered item. I purchased a shadow box many months ago and let it sit, unopened, next to all that memorabilia.
This week, it all came together. I sorted through the memorabilia, chose sewing patters and yarn for embellishments, and even picked out a set of her knitting needles. Background paper from Echo Park, a little Tim Holtz Distress Stain and Ink here and there and I have a project I am really proud of. Nan probably wouldn’t want her needles stuck down with Glue Dots but I think she’d understand why it was important to me.
Go check out the rest of the projects and then get to work on yours!
