I have officially joined the Snippet Roll craze ~ they are so much fun to make!! This one is about 90% finished, I just want to add some hand stitching around the girls, and embellish a bit more.
Sooooo long!! So much longer that I started out thinking it would be!! I had to get from the deep hunter green at the top to the deep purple at the bottom, though. I wish the details came through better on these pics, because some of the bits and bobs are just amaaazing vintage stuff. Like, up by the "Mother" pin (which itself is from the 50's) is a handpainted Victorian china button. Yes, this is the kind of stuff I collect and go absolutely nuts over, and then hoard for years. But look, look, I used some of it here! ( I still have about 5 china buttons, shhhhh, don't tell.)
