Another necklace

Like I said in my other post, I got hooked on jewelery making. I made a necklace awhile ago and I had some material left so I decided to make another one. I know the style is very similar but what can I do,I love pearls.These type of necklace with fabric flowers are very popular now and I'm happy about it so I can wear it all of the time and I can make a few more, maybe as Christmas gifts.....

Decorating on a budget

Decorating can be very pricey. All those nice things than make your house a home they have a price tag. I always try to find way to decorate on a budget and is not a easy task; my husband always tell me that I have a champagne taste and a beer wallet(or something like that). This is one of the project I come out with. I used one of my book in Italian it was not that old so I had to aged it with some ink and I just folded the pages and tied with a ribbon. The book was not one of my favorite so I was happy to find another use for it.

Pearls Necklace

I spent the last two months in San Diego at my in-laws home and during these time I had a possibility to play with new crafts. I always wanted to make jewelery but I didn't know were to start.I found out my sister-in law has a lot of knowledge about this topic and she was so nice to take me bead shopping ( and that was the most difficult part) and teach me and let me borrow all her tools. So I made this pearls necklace that I love.

Mom blanket

I made this blanket for my mom. Originally was for my grandma, my mom asked me to make one for her bed, but she got sick and died. So I made the blanket for my mom using for the center a piece left from a sheet my grandma embroidered before she got married. It was a tradition than to start preparing sheet an towels in a young age and have it ready before getting married. Even when I was very young my mom sent me to learn needle point. I still remember spending Saturday afternoon with the Sisters learning all of this small points. Anyway this is the blanket I made I just wish my grandma was able to see it.
