    A little bit of pastel and pearls

    Shh… I can’t tell you who this was made for… or why (look out for a future post) but after finishing it off- I can’t help but share it with you! So, yes I’ve posted on memo boards before (http://thelittlepomegranate.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/the-little-memo-board/) but this time its a quilted memo board! Oo-er. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about: rather than using wallpaper on a cork notice board, this involves a frame, some fabric, needles, quilting and of course-pearls. (Pearls, optional.) Anyway, on to the how:
