Labor Day Sale at Ribbonsmyth 20% Off

Everything is on Sale ~ 20% off Labor Day Savings!
We are feeling fall in the air here at the farm, and that means what will we begin to create for holiday gifts! I have a Christmas Tree Crazy Quilt Skirt that I so hope gets stitched in time for my Mother's tree! I can see it in elegant shades of burgundy and gold velvets with one of the fringe trims that I've saved for a special piece. Now where to find the time to make this a real gift and not just a vision!

So gather a few ribbons and vintage images for those holiday gift "visions"!

Featured is one of my Altoid tins that I created with a vintage image on a base of doupioni fabric and edged with 7mm silk ribbon French knots and hand-dyed Venice motif. The pattern is available and features a little velvet pincushion on the inside. I finished this piece by adding little legs to my tuffet case. To easily embellish the sides of the tin, I glued rococo lace around the tin.

In November, please catch my article featuring a variety of my embellished tins in the November issue of CQ Mag.
