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.
