Technically I did not make a Pick-a-Lily today but I will be making a listing of one in the shop. First, however, I'll share a bit about them and what makes them one of my all time favorite projects.
While I'll admit to my fair share of frustrations during the early days of creating them, I can now say I thoroughly enjoy the entire process.....from painting their little faces,
to adorning them with an assortment of bits and baubles,
and finally selecting a name by which to call them.
If you've been following along you'll know that Lily Maida here is my most recent Lily. She was outfitted with a kerchief and tussie mussie.
Others, like Lily Maud, prefer straw hats and baskets for their flower picking adventures.
Winter wanderers require a woolen cape to keep cozy.....
.....while more domestic Lilies stay close to home and task. They can most often be found keeping house,
practicing the needle arts,
and caring for their four legged friends.
Regardless of their personalities they all come wrapped in a shiny bow.....
.....and ready to be your pincushion friend!
