Check out these plates!

I’m still bummed about the craptacular lettering, but that’s an ongoing pityparty thing – boo hoo, my handwriting is horrible. It must be a pretty good life when the things that keep me awake at night include my handwriting, right?

The yarn (in peacock and dusty rose) is for birthday crowns, which will be felted, and will hopefully be sturdier than previous crowns. I want to needle felt an A and an E onto them, and then somehow add to the crowns each year to mark their birthdays. My first instinct is charms (photo or decorative?), but that may get cluttered. Needle felted dots don’t feel significant enough, though maybe I could embroider something meaningful onto them each year. Hmm. Again, if these are the things that I dwell on, I really can’t complain.

PS – I had my first “Hey, you’re Ivory, I read your blog!” moment today, and thankfully it was someone that I have been looking forward to meeting, and know through other channels. It was kind of surreal though. People actually read this thing? Heh. It was nice to meet you C, and such luck that we would both be in the same place at the same time!

    Hey, It was lovely to meet you, too. Your girls are just as sweet-looking in person as they are on here. Do you embroider at all? What is you embroidered something on the crowns for each birthday? Not so bulky and you could coordinate the images into an all-around motif?

    I thought I had your email, but I don’t. I have something for you on my blog!

    I love those plates! So cute and such a nice idea. (Plus, the handwriting looks fine!) Birthday crowns sound fun too. What sweet keepsakes.
