Bling Therapy

If you have been reading my blog Mrs Moen you know I have not really been that much into embellishing, my style is very simple indeed. Planning for the upcoming Make a Boob workshops has however struck a chord with my inner embellishmentness and I find myself snooping around the remnant bins at my local craft store. Little bits of ribbons, beads, sequins, felt flowers and other attachable stuff. All good!

Boob Mail, Victoria

These pretty, colourful boobs, both with fussy cut flowers in the centre and quilted with a feather pattern arrived today from Victoria of Bumble Beans Inc.
Great pair of boobs; I love them!
Thank you so much, Victoria!

Boob Sponsor, Gütermann

I first got to know Gøril Stokker, District Manager Consumer of Gütermann, when she/they kindly sponsored a quilting event our guild hosted back in 2008. We have since met when she did a lecture about different kinds of thread at our guild. Very interesting; I had no idea there was so many different kinds of threads! Anyhow, a while ago Gøril generously agreed to sponsor the Make a Boob project with thread for the workshops (yeeey, our first big sponsor!!), and last week she emailed me and said there was a box heading my way.

Grandson and I were both excited picking it up at the post office (he loves packages and so do I), and opening it up was like Christmas all over again. 103 spools of thread! We laid them all out on the table to see them all and this is how 103 brand new spools of thread look like.
Thank you so much for your generosity, Gøril and Gütermann!

Boob Mail, Trish

Trish Metcalfe of Compulsive Quilting had found Make a Boob on the web and sent these lovely boobs; some plain ones and some treasured ones.
Fantastic pair of boobs, don’t you think!
Thank you so much, Trish!

Boobs & Bling; December Guild meeting

A couple of members of my guild Rogaland Quiltelag, Judith and Britt, had made boobs for the project

and

Siw brought a bag bursting with yards and yards of pretty lace and ribbons, buttons and sparkling sequins.
Thank you so much, ladies; it will all be put to good use!
