What can I say, the nest is no longer empty so I am dedicating this one to myself, lol. Aubergine is a beautiful royal colour which immediately brought thoughts of velvet, jewels and a crown. The crown wasn't as successful as I had hoped so after rearranging my personal ribbon collection I was reminiscent of the beautiful ones that were created by our guild members. The velvet was a challenge to properly pleat so scrunching was the main technique of this project. The small scallops on 3 sides were done by machine and trimmed with my new amazing "Karen Kay Buckley" scissors.
