Let me introduce my new friend,
She wore this lovely necklace for the Southern Belle.
(She taught herself how to bead.)
She is a seamstress and embroider plus being absolutely gorgeous. She made the outfit she is wearing with lovely embroidered cuffs and sleeves to match this beautiful necklace! Incrediable!
Anyway she encouraged me to try the same pattern.
Here are my results....
As you can see I made mine in shades of rose and burgundy and made the rope in a variation of the bead colors.
The "clasp" catches right at the top of the purse.
I put a cotton ball inside with my favorite cologne
so I not only look good I smell good too!
Hero had sent me some acrylic flowers awhile back.
I have been wanting to use in a project so I finished this bracelet tonight and wanted to share it with you also.
My name for it is "wooly worm" but
it actually looks like a caterpillar.
I added the lovely flowers to the center of it that Mimi had given me. (See a couple of posts back.)
I added some gold glass leaves, some beautiful purple crystals in the center of the flowers and a large variety of sizes and textures of beads in shades of purple.
It was a fun piece to design and even more fun to finish.
Thank you so much, Hero, for your lovely gift of the flowers and for the idea of the purse necklace.
You are such a pleasure to know!
We were working on burning logs and limbs today so I am one tired puppy. It was a gorgeous spring day with very little wind so we started burning around 10:00AM until 8:00PM. We have a wooded lot and have not done any clean up in the woods for a couple of years so today was "the day".
It looks so much nicer, neater, cleaner. (even the butterflies came by to say they approve!)
Spring has sprung here in Georgia and I am so blessed to have so many lovely flowers to enjoy. God is so good to me!
Blessings to each and everyone today!
p.s. again I want to thank Hero for her encouragement and her sweet spirit!
