Upcycled tablecloth flowers.


Just a quick blog to show you my latest photo frame.

I upcycled a few of the embroidered flowers from my bargain tablecloth and added them to my embellished photo frame.

I love the colours in this one.

I have lots of flowers left and will be mostly making cards and lavender bags with the rest. Unless anyone else has a novel idea or two?


I should also say that we had a great get together today - 12 of the bloggers of the Welsh Marches, and a few others, got together for lunch and for some of us to meet for the first time. What a friendly bunch they all were and so nice to put a face to the blogging name.

I had to leave early but do hope we can repeat the get together soon.

All your embroidery has really enhanced the design, it's lovely - the colours remind me of the purple crocuses and greens I can just about see in my garden! xx
