It's been so long since I have posted I wonder...
Are you still there?
I'm still here...
"Balance" may have been a better word choice for me last January but when I think about it, I'm feelin' a little content right now anyhow.
Sale's over, room's almost clean and tidy, fabric pile is marginally lower.... and my pile of unfinished projects actually went down instead of up - a pretty good fiscal report I'd say
these are a few pics from the main event
I didn't design these guys but had more fun than you can imagine making them. I think I laughed out loud as each face was completed... so much character in their little faces...
lots of stockings- I used that stretchy gathered lace on the one below
the best suggestion for the cone hangers was wire but I didn't have time to go looking for some
woven ribbon seemed like a reasonable alternative and then I remembered a bracelet of my Grandmother's that I had taken apart
it was made of ivory-like squares that are carved like a rose and they were linked together with elastic... I cut the elastic and used some of the squares to help attach the ribbons
We had far too much fun but oh, I'm glad it's over.
and now I have a lot of catching up to do with you
what's been keeping you up at night?
