>New Cuff and a Nest

>  Hi Everyone

     Have you read my Ten on Tuesday post? It was ten things in my bucket list.  In the list I had mentioned that I want to see a bald eagle in the wild. I would definitely recommend posting your bucket list on your blog because the very next day after this post, I saw it! A soaring bald eagle, big and beautiful and close enough for me to see that gorgeous white head. And that’s not all.

Today I spotted the nest!

I knew it because I saw that beautiful white head again, poking out of that enormous nest. Wahoo, now that I know where to look I should see them all of the time!

     At the time that I was scanning trees for giant birds, I was also working on this.

My sunny cuff.
I cut this cuff from a denim dress.
I folded a length of this piece of skirt in half and ruffled it down both sides.
I attached it to the cuff, stitching down the ruffled sides. I then made this flower out of a single sided ruffle. I added a shell button to the middle of the flower and attached it.

     The fabric for the above ruffle was left over from this drawstring bag that I had made for my daughter.

I wish that I had some good sunlight for this photo.
The above cuff and drawstring bag were made from the same fabric as this scarf. All were cut from a flowy, gauzy skirt, obtained for $1 from a garage sale. I still have more of the yellow fabric. Major score!

     Wishing everyone a good weekend! As for me, I will probably be making lots of fabric flowers as I watch my daughter’s bowling tournament…..
