Necklace Finish and Whitman Tins

Here is my latest finish. I am happy with the result since it was my first try at soldering. I had bought the supplies to try soldering pendants or charms from my days when I was beading. Well I was inspired to make a necklace when I saw one Cathy had bought. So this is the end result. I can hardly wait to make more.
I may have to hit the road and sell my wares!!!!!



Then look what the UPS man brought tonight. Whitman tins---now I need to order the pattern and get stitching.

I received a very generous gift certificate from my daughter Kelsey from Down Sunshine Lane for my birthday. So I will be doing some serious ordering.

My birthday is Friday and I have a field trip planned with Jill and Lori for Lunch at Golden Corral, a stop at Hobby Lobby and then off to our LNS. I can hardly wait. I think I am running a little low on stitching projects.

I will be posting with all my finds.

Joanus,

You are a FREAK!!!

I can't wait to get my Whitman Tin and the pattern, because I, too, am running low on projects. The 15 exchanges and SAL's and personal projects just don't seem to keep me busy enough.

I do like your necklace. I think I would like one and of course it would have to be a peacock.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

you are all funny! I think that you should make me a cute necklace...I love it! :)

I will be sure to stop by the russell stover store again before I leave, and I'll look to see where the other ones might be along the way, and we'll stop if we can!

Love you...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - FREAK!
