I have been making jewelry for a while now. I started with quilt themed earrings. Recently I branched out with kilt pins. I make them in two sizes. One that holds three charms and one that holds five charms. They have been a really big hit at the quilt shows and guild meetings. Here is what they look like.
They really are fun. Making jewelry is new for me. I have always envied people who are creative like that. My talents have always run toward needle work. My walls back home were covered with cross stitch, crewel, candlewicking, embroidery and needle punch rugs and wall hangings. After I moved down here to North Carolina I learned how to quilt. This has become my new passion. My grandchildren get at least one quilt every two years and many years they get one a year. Now that they are bigger I’m sure that will slow down. I actually just got all the fabric to make each one of them a new quilt. They are long overdue.
I have been making table runners and wall hangings for myself now. You can only use so many bed quilts. Right?
It’s been raining here all day. We have had so much rain I can actually see the grass growing as it is coming down. OK maybe it’s weeds instead of grass. We don’t really have a lawn. Our house is in the middle of the woods. It’s so nice not to have to worry about all that yard work anymore. Gardening was never my strong suit, but we entertained a lot in the summer when we were in PA so it was necessary.
Well I think I have played enough on the computer today. I just love reading the blogs I follow. But before you know it hours have passed. So until next time.
