More burlap and lace!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I just can't seem to get enough of burlap, lace,  ruffles and more!
I haven't made any new runners lately.  I finally got in the mood to sew and here's what happened....

This one turned out to be my favorite.  I used lace from an old blouse as the ruffle.....

I received this wonderful clay heart from Ness at Marley and Lockyer.  I won her giveaway and it included a lovely pillow of my choice, a pretty pin and this clay heart.  I love how it looks hanging on my lamp.  If you haven't met Ness be sure and visit her blog for some serious loveliness.

My computer has been down for a few days for maintenance. My IT guy, aka, my son, who really scolded me over my messed up and disorganized photos and stuff.  I will try to do better!

I will show you the pillow I received from Ness when my camera has recharged.

Sissie- I LOVE your newest creation! That lace is gorgeous!! Wow! I have the same IT guy you do...we call ours MamasBoy and he is a "snorter" and "heavy sigher" when he is at my computer trying to do (or worse-do) something I have managed to do. Hey...I changed his poopy diapers, did't I? Now he can fix my crappy computer! xxoo Diana
