I haven't blogged in a while and man do I have a lot to share! This will be my catch-up post.
Two weekends ago I had a bunch of friends over to make Lilly Ollo jewelry. There is a paint your own pottery place near my house - The Pottery Stop - that also does Lilly Ollo silver jewelry. I was interested in trying it - so I called the shop and found out that I could have a party at my house if I got 6 or more people to attend! Yay! So I did.
We had a blast!
We were able to pick out a design, press our silver clay into the mold, fire it in the kiln, then burnish it and pick out a necklace.
Here are my two creations... I finished the tree with a black coating and left the bird plain silver. I love how they came out! I definitely want to try that again.
Moving on to this past weekend - some of my knitting friends and I have a yearly Handmade Holiday Swap where we each get assigned a person to make a present for and then swap at a tea party.
We all loved our presents! I can't wait to show you the amazing tatted ornaments I got from Jen - I just need to take a picture! I was speechless!
Sarah was down for the weekend too and I gave her her Christmas gift a bit early since she was here in person. I made her an apron!
I know Sarah loves to cook and thought she would enjoy an apron to use in the kitchen. She told me today she plans to wear it to spinning to help keep the fiber off of her clothes! What an awesome idea!
Miss you already Sarah!!
Phew - all caught up.... almost.
Stay tuned...tomorrow - a new free pattern!
