**~~One of My Latest Creations! A Special Order Shabby Cottage Throw~~**

  This is a one of a kind special order throw that I made for a very precious customer. I used antique and vintage fabrics, laces and trims. I also used lovely fabric blocks featuring beautiful embellished altered art brides by Debi Jo Artwork.
 The back of this throw is vintage chenille. I really enjoyed putting this one together for a very special lady in Brooklyn NY. I can do many types of special orders using any of my prints available in my ebay store, etsy shop, or artfire shops. There are links to all 3 to the right.
 I can also take any of your cherished photos, prints, etc and make custom order treasures for you with them. I make pillows, sachets, throws, baby blankets, placemats, table runners, throws and more. I don't make the large quilts because I don't have the proper equipment for that kind of larger work.

I'm no professional quilter that's for certain...but that is just part of the shabby cottage chic appeal of my little throws...well at least I think so. Imperfect in so many ways, but ooooh so shabby chic!
