My day was spent going through boxes and drawers in search of my misplaced items. My worst fear about the bracelet was that I had thrown them out. That was the fate of a very nice pair of earrings I used to own. But eureka, I found it. In a shoebox full of junk on a closet shelf. It's a nice little reminder of my favorite trips. I also found the booklet materials. They have to be finished ASAP.
Embroidery transfers, a gremlin doll I made, My tiny radio (not having it has made me not go to the gym - nothing to listen to on the treadmill but my own moaning) and a swell needlefelted llama. and there, in the middle, a $35.00 pair of dressmaker scissors.
The gremlin doll deserves a closer look. It's about six inches high and comes from a great book of softie patterns by Linda Kopp. The patterns are easy to use and the designs are pretty amusing. I chose to use applique'd eyes because it's for a small child.
