Fast forward to last week when I had a huge pile of earrings, hair accessories, bracelets and necklaces (which I rarely wear) in the middle of my dressing table. I was late for work and could not find a pair of earrings for love nor money. I forgot to take a picture of it at it's worst, but we'll call this the before picture!
Back when I originally had the idea I had bought the frame I needed and the ribbon I needed and they were all carefully packed away. I even found them. Originally I had intended low volume hexagons as the background, then that became squares, and in the end I found a beautiful fabric I had forgotten about and made the whole thing from a single piece.
And this was the result. The after picture at the top of the post. Much prettier, much tidier and most importantly running-very-late-friendly! Why did I wait two years when this took me just under an hour?
