my sewing machine has been working non stop this past week conjuring up new variations to my newest obsession: garlands.  i love taking a theme and making it my own.  loving denim, i thought i'd try something with that in blue and white, something a bit more modern and simple.  four more banner pieces arose.  then i combined them with the white ones on the ribbon and i just love how it looks.

but the week has had other amazing surprises in between of which i will put together a very special post in the days to follow.

What an extraordinary idea! I've been collecting denim dresses, shirts, etc. in order to make a quilt and I love this idea as well. I'm visiting via...now, I can't remember and do apologize but I'm glad I got here, just the same.
My sewing machine has been busy making Christmas stockings. With the studio door and windows open, it's a lovely way to share my day with the critters.

This banner is a wonderful idea. I really like the blue and white together and you've made it very special with the embellishments you've used.
I was looking at the things on your sidebar. Your Mother is beautiful!

I like your banner very much. What a good idea, and it offers the chance to be very creative and expressive, which you do beautifully!( of course, the banner being blue is even better~)
