I've just finished making a necklace as a gift for my middle daughter Rachael.
She has a thing for pirates but I didn't want to make this necklace overly piratey as I already used a pirate theme on this necklace that I made for her a while ago. I decided to just add a couple of sea themed charms to a bead cluster, just need to find a box for it now.
Talking of boxing up necklaces I found a box for the gothic lace collar I showed you on my last post, only problem is that it was turquoise and not at all gothy enough for Ellie. I decided to cover the top of the box with some of the lace halloween tablecloth I used as a veil on my halloween costume.
I really like how it turned out.
Very goth don't you think?
I also need to update you on another Christmas swap that I took part in - The "Handmade Christmas Decoration Swap" hosted by Hookin' with LaaLaa.
I was paired with Sue from @ home and received a gorgeous package of Christmas loveliness.
I love everything, thank you Sue.
I can now show you the handmade part of what I sent to Sue.
Hand sewn felt tree ornaments each embellished with a single button. I also scented the stuffing with a gingerbread fragrance oil.
And last, but not least an update on my advent swap from LissyLou ..
I am so loving opening a new parcel each day.
I can also now show you the other little project I made from the Cute and Easy Crochet Book that I blogged about here. It was for my advent swap, but I know that LissyLou has now opened this so I can show it to you.
Love Linda xxx
