The lamp shade is still not redone and I now realize that a few more pillows might be in order to give her that "sofa" feel that she so wants but I'm quite pleased with the progress.
The photo collage extends further to the left of this photo but the full pic came out a mess (even darker than this one) so I'll have to take better pics in the light tomorrow.
She absolutely LOVES this collage!
SUCCESS at last ; )
My daughter has been begging for posters to be hung in her room for a long time now. Lucky for me, one of her best friends has a mom who really loves her and granted her wish this year. She delivered and hung all three of these lovely frames filled with Yasmeen's pick of super stars. Gotta say that I'd never sen Kesha before and am not so very impressed...I must be getting old.
Now all of the hodgepodge of posters are hung up in her closet and she couldn't have been more thrilled.
These are the two pillows that I kept saying I would post pics of. The last one I did was the one with her name on it and that was fun. I have never tried to "embroider" anything with my machine until this pillow and I learned a lot doing it. Freehanding it is kind of liberating after all of those straight lines.
I leave you with a pic of the 11 year old herself. She said that this was the best birthday of her life..I hope we don't disappoint her next year.
Happy Birthday my dear sweet Yasmeen!
I love you!
