Thought I would share my latest adventures. I've been doing some jewelery for Christmas. I am using chip china chards and the beautiful ends of silverware. I have wanted to do this for quite a while. These are the first two that I have finished and it was a lot of fun.

I have some more chards ready to go, but need to cut off some more spoons. Guess I will do some more later. I am also going to make some mice ornaments, I did a lot of them a few years ago.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful time with family and friends. A beautiful time to be thankful for our precious friends and a time to reflect on the brave men and women that can't be with their family because they are giving their time to protect us. Pray that God will keep them safe. May this be the best holiday season we have ever had and may it bring new things to us in the future.

Thought I would show you the new bag that I finally finished. Really this is the second time I have finished it. After I got it made the first time I didn't like the seam binding that I had on it. It was way to long and too much. So I took it apart and started over. Now it looks like I had meant for it too look. I found a picture of a bird that had been embroidered and in a nest so I made me a bird and transfered it on to muslin and started to embroidery. I added some leaves out of green velvet and embroidered the veins. Then just started adding all kind of yarns and threads to make him look like he was in a tree building a nest. The bird also has a couple of real feathers on him. Then I put the muslin on the bag and added the brown fringe trim around it. It looked to smooth so I held the steam iron above it and messed it up. I thought it looked much better. Then I added the tiger eye and turquoise beads. They matched everything perfect.

My friend Pat Hutchison gave me some of her material for the lining. I took my embroidery to show her and she told me she had the perfect lining. So she shared her material with me. She is such a sweet lady!

And my sweet friend Lisa, Tarnished and Tattered gave me the blue seam binding. It was a perfect match.

Now I am working on another piece of crazy quilting. Hope to finish it soon. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Look at this sweet smile on this sweet lady. It was so nice to get to meet and visit with Dawn along with Lisa and Lori. The only thing missing was Charlene. We all got to talk about things we are doing and what we are going to do. Listening to Lisa and Dawn telling about the trip they were about to take and now I have had the chance to share in their pleasure by seeing the pictures on their blogs. Blogland is a wonderful place to be and meet such awsome people. What a joy to be with Dawn, the person that got me started blogging and explaining how to do it. She sent me many emails telling me just what to do to get things to work. Thank you, Dawn for always being their when I needed you.

I told you I would post this piece of art when I finished with it. Well I'm a little late, but it is finished. I love the beading on the tree. It is one of my favorite things on this piece.

I will be listing it on my Etsy soon.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!
