Hello my dear friends! Title tells everything … I have a little story in my mind … and a give away!!! hope you join me …
When I took photos for my notebook and had my vintage glasses for decoration, there happened to appear one shoot I really liked! It’s this photo with lovely shadow.
It stayed in my mind and I wanted to do something with this … and just then I got an exiting e-mail. I have been thinking a lot about eye glasses lately. The truth is that I got an e-mail from ”Firmoo” already before the Christmas, but then I was so busy with many things and also with the moving of my blog – so I couldn’t react.
Still I was thinking often those eye glasses and I was really happy they contacted me again now! I’m sure anyone who wears glasses, has a special ralationship with this matter – love or hate – or both? Also I’m sure that anyone who wears glasses, would like to get more often new glasses and to have several pairs of glasses!
I thought that now I have an opportunity to sew something inspired with the photo I liked. But how? Hmmm … I have to draw them first … I haven’t drawn anything for ages!
And how I make the base? I shouldn’t have start any new project because there is already something on my sewing table and I thought I could have finished that and get it in use … but here I am again. Any way, that’s why I thought to take quickly same patches I used for the notebook, not to use much time to plan other colours and prints.
So here I have now the log cabin block and I should some how manage to ‘draw’ eye glasses on it with fabric?! I’m not affraid - this is what I love to do – make patchwork pictures and I haven’t done any for so long time! In the drawing the uppest pair of glasses was my first try to draw the shadow. That didn’t look good so I draw the glasses and then I just had to add also the shadow.
‘Firmoo’ has a wonderful collection of eye wears and so good prices! They have lots of fashionable frames, traditional, glasses ‘without’ frame, half-frames, for women and for men, computer glasses, specialty glasses and sun glasses which I need every day and almost all the year!
You know that one of my most favourite eye glasses were those vintage eye glasses in these photos. Other eye glasses that I truly loved were without frames … I would still use them but I have distroided them when painting something.
Now I can’t choose what kind of eye glasses I should buy.
Should I choose these…
