Ruching Adventure

Sunday already! It was a busy, busy week last week. Tuesday saw the launch of Tudor Tuesdays SAL blog  and my local EGA meeting.  Diane S gave a great program on ruching. Diane is a great teacher and gave us lots of ideas. Thank you, Diane!

Of course, the ruching made my head explode with all sorts of ideas on finishes I could do.

Remember Mary Mouse (freebie from Brookes Books?).  Here she is done up in a Christmas ornament, complete with ruching and little pearl pins - to be given to a sweet little girl for Christmas ;0) (HINT: She just turned one year old this past Thursday).

Here's the back of the ornament with a fussy cut - couldn't resist.

Have a great day!!!


  1. Your finished ornament is adorable. I really like the ruched ribbon you attached.

  2. The ruching is perfect for surrounding that mouse-erina! And that was an inspired idea to go with the fussy cut panel. Don't know if the one year old will appreciate it, but I'm sure the Mommy will!

  3. I love the ruching finish! What a great finish for your sweet little mouse - complete with cat on the back! Love it :o)

  5. Dinae is a very good teacher with lots of knowledge and ideas to share. She taught at the evening meeting as well.

  6. What a lovely finish, looks like you were a model student for Diane!
