Show and Tell

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was very busy with creating. Here's a few pics of what I have done.


Above is a reticule I made with a handpainted sunflower on it. There is a little bee at the top of the drawstring...I have a close up of it further down the page. This will be for the show.

Below...two jars of scented rag balls for the show. Lavender-vanilla scent...yum!



Below is a close up of the little bee on the drawstring, and the following picture is a full shot of this reticule. I made 6 of these this weekend for the show.




Last of all...an attempt at a rag basket. First time I have tried this, and I think it turned out cute. I don't know if I will make these for the show or not, but it is currently on my site.

Back to work now!!!!

Well, you sure have been a busy bee!lol Very cute, the reticules would also make nice gift bags or (here comes a shameless plug) potpourri bag! The rag balls are a cute idea and the rag basket come out cute, the fabric is dark, is it braided?
