I must say, that crown was feeling pretty darned comfy. So, after reading Taheerah's interview with the one-and-only Jocelyn Olson, and seeing the loveliness that is Jocelyn's style, I decided to [go back after the crown once again] play along!
Oh you have to see the inspiration:
So even if there is no guarantee of a re-run on the crowning, I just had to play along... here's my take:
Embossed lines, instead of circles; die cut "friend" instead of stamped; a little hole cutting action on the partial circle replaces the doilies [which I love, by the way] add a gorgeous water-colored Maggie's Roses cutaways, a little gold-dipped heart and leaves, and a few W&W sequins that always accompany our orders... bless their generous hearts! Jocelyn, I hope you'll forgive the lack of stitching... circa 1972 machine just didn't have the strength for it today =\
Here's a bit of a close-up:
Thanks Taheerah and Jocelyn for the gorgeous inspiration! And OH would I love to join you for that get-together whenever it happens - and I know it will happen!
