July's theme!

July's ornament: snail ( let's make it a particularly lovely snail, shall we!)

I love the old vintage postcards of fairies riding snails. (tortoises too!) In these, the lowly snail is elevated to the height of grandeur...imagine being the steed of a fairy!


July's challenge:
linen &/or vintage fabric scraps

July's activity: take your Gnome doll to a July 4th bash and take pictures of him/her behaving badly. (If you don't go to a party, take your gnome shopping or on vacation instead.)
Post the photos on the blog!

Now, make sure you keep your gnome this month because you'll use him/her one more time in August!

Then turn not pale beloved snail, but come and join the dance..."
