Mothers day and ribbon challenge over at RRR








 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Today was something else....Monday of all days.  Woke up to a fierce migraine and finally broke down and took an imitrex which I hate to take if I don't need too.  I had things to do in town....looked out the window and it was literally a snow storm.  SAY WHAT? on April 15th rofl.   Sooo I went back to bed ...decided the next time I peek my head out all would be better.  Kinda a second chance at starting the day, lol. 
                                                 Anyways... I do have  a sweet challenge for you from over at RRR that you will want to join in on.  Mothers day theme with ribbon.   Always enjoy creating with Mom in mind brings memories of home, heart, safeness.  I decided to create a pincushion from some of my stash of fabric.  It is a "mother birds egg nest".  I used the faux burlap ribbon wrapped around the pincushion.  I also used it as part of my nest layered in some vintage lace ribbons.  I added a bit of burlap snippet over the burlap ribbon and added my eggs and pearl stamens.  I also used two different ribbons for the pincushion to hang from.  I used soapstone seam binding and faux canvas ribbon in natural.   I embellished with a large metal key and a stamped mothers day tag.  I pinned a few stick pins using spools and little snippets of lace.  Last I added vintage mother of pearl buttons and tea stained lace using the Arabella crochet lace in white.  Had fun getting to use so many ribbons on this.  Hope you join in the challenge.  Mothers day is just around the corner!  night, night, cherry

Full of shabby prettiness Cherry! Love the little lace wrapped spools. So sorry about your migraine. My hubby suffers from them, NO FUN.

Your pincushion is so pretty! I totally sympathize with you and migraines. I had them for years up until a year and a half ago when I was put on blood pressure medication.
