Ever see the movie, Return to Oz? I made this necklace with it in mind. It has always been one of our favorite childhood movies, because of it my husband and I compulsively touch green things and say Oz, you know … just in case.

I love roses, I always wanted a red rose ring, but never came across one, when I got into ring making that was the first thing that came to mind. These are the a few that I wear most often, and they are incredibly comfortable. These rings have become very popular with my loved ones, and I finally have my red rose ring I always wanted.
Ah roses is there anything more simple while still being so elegant? I fell in love with this rose fabric and it took a long time for me to cut into it, I’m very pleased with how it came out. Like all my apron this is fully lined. The attached half apron is white dot on white very subtle but I think it adds a lot.
I added apple green topstitching to the rose fabric, and finished off with red and white lace. I have started to refer to this pattern that I have created as a “tartlett apron”
I completed my first full apron, I am very happy with it. I originally bought this pink rose on green to make curtains in my kitchen but decided it would look great with this dotted fabric. every part of this, including the floral half apron part, is fully lined.
I used a cream brocade for the waistband that is elastic so you can comfortably move around in it. The top straps are partially elastic, but then ties in back, it really helps for busty girls.
I did a top stitch in lime green and added two laces forest green and cream
I started making myself this small purse, and while its unfinished, I wanted to share this with you. I have been considering making a pearl beaded handle, but have yet to commit to it. The red roses are actually two pockets and edged in this beautiful antique cream lace that I have been referring to as buttermilk. I received the lace as a gift and was found in a small shop in Wisconsin along with 10 yards of forest green lace that you will be seeing a lot of soon. The lining is a tiny white dot on a red background. I did a top stitching in an apple green thread. My favorite is the little red rose decorative button, its the cherry on top.
This bag is very similar to the first project I ever tried to sew on a machine, I completely butchered it; I wanted to quit but my husband encouraged me to finish no matter what it looked like, so I could see how far I had come once I was better at sewing. I cried during most of it with him at my side. He was so right when I came across that first bag recently I was amazed. that’s when I decided to make a new one, I altered it greatly cause the other was too small, and pockets that were mostly decorative. I’m very happy with this new one.
I highly suggest if you have had a project that almost defeated you ( or did ) to take it out, and look at how far your skills have come, and possibly try it again, at the very worst you can learn from it
I was recently married to the man of my dreams. I made the crazy decision to try to make everything, I mostly succeeded. I made myself this bouquet after not finding anything vintage enough to go with my 1920-30s look. I never intended on the hops being part of it but I couldn’t find any foliage I liked better so here it is; dusky purple Poppies, green and white hops, green ranunculus, cream and green love lies bleeding and cream feathers. I covered the holder in a soft moss before adding the flowers so it looks fuller. I really loved how it turned out . My husband ( who is a big H.P Lovecraft fan) told me it looked Cthulhu-ey. while I no longer have my bouquet, I sent it up to be with my ailing aunt who couldn’t make it, it made me so happy, in fact i was informed by my husband that when I stepped out, he heard a gasp followed by “Oh my God look at the bouquet.”
