An Irish Lass

I just have to show you what my friend, Pat, has made using some of the Barefoot Roses fabric she bought from me! Oh my gosh...it is just toooooo darling!

Are you ready???

This is a BEAUTIFUL pillow and tote bag that she is offering together in one auction...
Here's the reverse side of the pillow...those beautiful Barefoot Roses!
So beautiful hanging....
Here's the sweet pink tote with the same lovely vintage image on it...


You can find this precious creation HERE in Pat's eBay store. She is summersdarling on eBay and my very favorite seller. We met through eBay and have been good friends ever since....going on 5 years now, I believe! She wrote me to compliment me on my very first auction on eBay ever...the first thing I ever sold on eBay, actually. It was a little pair of overalls that I altered by making a bib out of a vintage Southern Belle pillowcase. I just spent 20 minutes looking for the photos and can't find them.
Anyway my model was my Emily, who was about 2 at the time. She is now 7!
Since then, I have bought many beautiful things from Pat, some of her pillows among them. I have bought DOZENS of beautiful vintage images on fabric from her, which you can also find in her eBay store, and I am continually amazed and delighted by her artful offerings and precious vintage images.
Pat has been my cheerleader as I've grown in both confidence and ability the last few years. She is the reason I am doing all of this today! Hundreds of emails have gone back and forth over the years between us and she has been both coach, counselor, friend and even mother, at times! I am so grateful for her. She is truly one in a million and one of the few people I've met through the internet that I am confident I will ALWAYS be friends with. Someday I hope to take my family to visit she and her husband...it makes me teary just thinking about hugging her in person!
James is doing his night classes tonight and my incredible mother-in-law has taken the children for the evening. So I am going to enjoy the quiet and get a little work done!
Hope you are having a lovely evening....
Love,
Cheryl
