Show and Tell - Crafts2Share

I had a lovely evening with the ladies of a local craft group.  I was invited to show the ladies my work and to demonstrate how to make a corsage or wristcuff.  The members had been dyeing fabrics at an earlier meeting and some had brought those along with them.  I took my Inspiration Packs along and some were used in the creation of these lovely pieces......

a needlecase complete with blanket label
shades of red corsage
raggedy neutrals
beaded bridal piece
beautiful greens
this one reminds me of a pansy
beaded layers
rose pink with a hint of grey
Lots of chat and cups of tea and coffee were consumed in the making of these lovely pieces of work. The very enjoyable evening came to an end all too quickly.  Until next time .. Jayne


  1. Your ladies, created beautiful corsages , dear Jayne- I would have loved to be there, too, to sew and chat with you. Great idea, to bring your inspiration packs.

  2. Hello dear Jayne, It sounds like you had wonderful evening and your ladies did a great job following your instructions. The corsages turned out very pretty.

  3. Such clever work! As you might guess, I love the inclusion of the old blanket label!
