It felt good to create yesterday on a cold wet dreary day. I wanted to do my Moulin Rouge chunky 4X4 pages and finished up two for a chunky book.
This one I have used perhaps a bit of a story line looking like the lovers met in Paris in 1936, the date on the ribbon. She was a dancer and he was a gentleman. I am not sure where the vintage ribbon came from as it was in my stash for quite some time, but it was perfect for this project! I have some more I shall use for other chunky pages.
I love this corset gal. I ran across a saying about corsets and couldn't resist using it! It is written in French on the front page, but the flip side reveals the translation which reads: " There are women who tire of their lovers faster than their corsets." This came from La Vie Parisienne.
This is how I finished the backs
I also got some other vintage things done this past week. I machine quilted and got the binding finished on my husband's cousins two quilts. The tops were done by her mother. She wanted them quilted to give as gifts to her daughters when they got married. This first one is my favorite.
I am guessing by the age of the fabrics that there are fabrics in there from the 40's and 50's. The sashing screams Peptobismal!
So what do you think Bisky?
I should know by now that I should never ask for your opinion, but I can't blame you for the pepto pink! I am not a pink gal myself!
