Lucky Me

Hi have you discovered Lucky Jackson and her 365 Lucky Days project? Today is day 148 so I apologise right now for not mentioning it sooner. But today I have a good reason to because I have admired these amazing pieces of stitching for 148 days and just recently Lucky has made some of her embroidery patterns available to buy. My finger hit that 'buy' button straightaway, well once I'd dithered over which one.

In the end I went for Vintage Dress Love.
Do you remember the Skirt I recycled? That's what made up my mind in the end as I thought I'd make something for my Mum as it was her skirt from the 70s that I cut up. To colour the shoes I carefully coloured them with promarkers.

I may well be visting the shop again to buy Polaroid Love and Boot Love

Before I go I thought I'd share a couple of my favourite pieces from the Lucky 365 days project.



Blondie from Bombshell Week




Batboy

Aren't you impressed that one of these masterpieces appears every single day?

I am.

So cool! My dauthter turned me on to 365 Lucky Days and I have loved seeing her daily creations. I absolutly adore your piece, and I love that the fabric is from your mom's skirt.

Funny - we were leaving comments on each other's blogs at the same time.

RE: The butterflies: When ever you have one ready you can mail it to me. I plan to put them on a wall and collect them until May 1st, then package them up and send them to the museum. If you could email me at paperturtle{at}cox{dot}net I'll send you my mailing info. Thanks, Amanda!!! xo
