Hello wednesday - Raffia

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

A friend asked me to make a few things for her charity stall - so I made these.

She thought they were great and hoped to raise a pound or two.

I picked up the little frames at the Paris show back in November, but I am sure we must have something over here that is similar.  With our NEW Raffia Ribbon (here)  I just wound it around the frame and secured with a tight knot.  Next I took three lengths of raffia and threaded them under the bundle of raffia on the front of the frames and tied a bow.  Making sure the centre of the bow was tight, I then fanned out the raffia to make the bow look bigger.

Being surrounded by so many different beautiful ribbons, it makes a change to work with something different.  This raffia ribbon is so soft and is a dream to handle, it is made in Japan so is of very high quality.  With the natural wood of the frames, I just thought the raffia was perfect for the job.  As I was playing with the raffia my mind slipped into Christmas mode and I started thinking of cinamon sticks wrapped in raffia and little red gingham hearts in the centre of large raffia bows - STOP IT ALI, STOP IT!!

I am taking the morning off - shame the weather is not brill.  Have a great day.
