Week Nine: 52 Weeks Of Creativity

This weeks make was inspired the the Mothers Day gift I stitched for my mum – she has a wall in her kitchen that features some pretty cool prints and whatnots from artists and makers. Her kitchen has splashes of red and I felt that my usual style of pennant would look a bit lost and quite frankly dull in amongst them! So I popped my thinking cap on and this is what I came up for her…

..and I was rather chuffed with it (as was she, i’m pleased to report!) It has inspired a flurry of further stitching this week and a new product line for MrsMacMakes has been born. I just LOVE it when things like this happen!

So this weeks contribution to my 52 weeks challenge, and the first in the new product range is this quote from C.S Lewis  “Courage, dear heart” take from:

“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, “Courage, dear heart,” and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan’s, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”  C.S. LewisThe Voyage of the Dawn Treader/No.3 Chronicles of Narnia

This and more will be available in my web shop to buy in the next day or so, and they are totally customisable – so you can pick a colour that matches your scheme and the quote or saying that inspires or means something to you.
