Just Because


 I scattered my toys
and threw down my dress.
Sometimes I just feel
like making a mess.
 

Featured: A wall hanging
made of bits and pieces
of embroidery.

Dearest Amalia,
I was far sure to have left here a comment of mine, but I'm mistaken, forgive my belated visit!
Sometimes we all make mess, don't worry :)!
But I don't believe you're able to do a mess, you're such a talented Lady.
Sending hugs and more hugs to you

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

I love how you took the bits and pieces of other embroidery to gather into this cute wall hanging. Making a mess seems to be part of the creative process - bringing order to the chaos perhaps? I know I certainly relish that feeling.

Count me in as another mess maker!
