One group of viewers formed a club, the Beady Bunch. I am a member, and so are 800+ other folks, mostly women who make jewelry.Being a Beady Bunch member and recent Jewel School happenings have put some added excitement and comaraderie in my life!
is this design from the Quilt Square Girls in West Jefferson, NC. It seems like every time I turn one of their barn quilts into a necklace, that one becomes my favorite!I don’t know the name of this pattern, but it’s very folksy, and I love it!
I’m also pleased with the tiny antique button clasp I found to finish it.
This style is different than the images under glass that I made originally. These are more of a laminated lucite. They are harder to produce, but they look more like miniature barn quilts to me.
Laura and I got together a couple of weeks ago for one of our play dates. We made jewelry and did a little sewing. We had a great visit with Libby at Sew Blessed Quilt Shop. We ate lots of great food. The best thing was probably a strawberry margarita cupcake!
The top two are Laura’s. The bottom one is mine.
Laura tried a bigger soup cozy. It’s 12”x12.” It turned out great!
‘Wish I’d taken a picture of that cupcake! Wish I had another one!
My daughter’s birthday is today. I made her this as part of her gift.
