Tonight is the last total lunar eclipse we’ll enjoy until 2010. Depending on the weather, we should also be able to see Saturn and its rings as well as Regulas framing the full moon.
Now let’s talk about the four coasters I made for Ibby Bee's coaster swap. You can see everyone’s projects here.
I secretly lurked on Beverly’s blog to learn about her. I noticed her fondness for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s—and that’s the theme I chose.
Scanned sheet music for Moon River from one of my husband’s music books; words by Johnny Mercer and music by Henry Mancini. Do you remember the scene where Holly Golightly sings this?
I love this sassy pose.
The Necklace—nothing more need be said.
Each picture was printed on fusible fabric and backed with a black-and-white print. I felt pearls would be perfect iconic embellishments. These are real pearls, not fake. I bought them at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show two weeks ago for this project.
Kristie gave me some tiny white beads and showed how to attach the pearls with them. You loop the thread up from your fabric and through the pearl, then into the tiny bead, back down through the pearl, and finally back into your fabric.
An old Tiffany’s box and bag was the final touch along with a Tiffany card and envelope for writing a note to Beverly. I absolutely loved creating this coaster set.
