I had a chance to get to some finishing and I guess some
creating done today.
First I stitched Always and Forever by Little House
Needleworks for our 30th anniversary. I decided to
finish it as a flat-fold. I think it turned out quite nice.
And I even got it done before May 6th, which is our
Then I made some more soldered pendants. I just love the way they turned out. This first one is of my grandparents. It was taken in April of 1930, just two months before they were married.
The cross was given to me by my grandmother when I had my first child. She received it when she had my dad. The heart locket also came from her. I really cherish this pendant. I think it is a great way to display an heirloom, it's not hidden away in a cedar chest.
Then I tried my hand at a few more pendants. I did
a pressed leaf. The middle picture came from an
antique shop--thought someone could say it was
their grandmother as a child!!! And the last picture
is of my grandson.
I really think these would make great gifts, especially if they were made from pictures of your own family. I just may start a little business doing just that for others.
So now I am going to try to get my Christmas ornament SAL done before the end of the month.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and keep stitching.
Simply Christmas ~
