Hand stitched moire lampshade with beaded tasseled fringe.



I hand stitched this lampshade which is fully lined. It is not recommended to use a vertical print for these but since it was a subtle cream moire fabric it did not present to much of a distraction. Since the shade is so large I put it on a floor lamp base which is over 50 years old, ( a family antique.)

Birthday book/card from friend.




video

I am sharing (my first uploaded .mov file) of a birthday book/card created by my very creative friend. She made it with the large brown paper bags which also created pockets so I can tuck other things in here too. She knew I liked all things white so this formed the theme of the book. Images were ripped from various decorating magazines which I also like as it adds yet another textural element.
Sorry that the quality of movie isn't better but I have to start somewhere right!
