I am open

Sorry friends, been having multiple back surgeries and could not keep up
I could not sit at the computer to add content.
 Feeling better each day

silken bag

I made this beaded bag using sari silk.
Rippins for the hanger and a length of sari silk for the body of the pouch,
Lined it with green silk.
I love to bead so added some to the body of the bag, and I made the bead drop.
The top of the bag is beaded with my 3 bead style.
Hope you like it

very chic

ooh. la la cushion

I love pretty cushions here and there, especially here.
this has lots of layers of lace
and I used a quick idea to surround the lady with trims and shabby lace.
Just made a snippet roll and cut it to fit
it worked well and was so fast

a heart for the window

I am creating some projects with a Valentine theme
This window heart is a new idea
It is formed with covered wire, old hand dyed lace
and is 8 inches
The beaded dangle I made catches the light and sends pretty rays of color to my walls.

Of course pink is for love nes pas?
