choker & bracelet.....

I made a choker style necklace out of "ribbon maille" and one of the snowflakes (black & silver in the pic).  I also made a bracelet for my sister (two tone green).  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I wish the crystals had been green, but I used what I had.

I started in the middle on Bianca and worked down.  I wanted to see how the purple would look on the Crystal Monet fabric.  I think it looks awesome!  =)

Still waiting on fabric.... so today I taught myself another new weave... "Solstice".  I'm happy.  It turned out pretty cute!  =)

While I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive, I have a little bit of time.  So I thought I'd teach myself something new.  Yesterday I taught myself the "Dragonscale" weave.  I'm still not sure if I want to continue the pattern to make a bracelet.  It's kind of wide.  I usually prefer my bracelets to be less than half the width.

Ophelia's Pearl

I just finished Ophelia's Pearl last night.  She's stitched on SMF Watersprite linen.  She was a very fun stitch due to all the bright colors.  Although halfway through, I realized she would have been AMAZING if I had converted the pinks to purples.  oh, well.........  maybe some day day I'll feel like doing it again....?  I'm still waiting for the fabric to arrive so I can start Biancabella.  It should be here  in a few days.  So I'm not sure what I'll work on until then.  I'm sure it will be a WIP though.

We got about 4 inches of snow a couple days ago.  It's all melted away now.  We're supposed to get more on Saturday.  So I thought I'd post a pic of the snowflake chainmaille ornaments I made.  I've recently just finished the 20th one (although there's only 13 in the picture).  =)

Pirate Treasure & new WIP

I just got to the point where I had enough of Pirate Treasure for a while.  I found I was not stitching when  I could have been because I didn't want to stitch on it.  So here's a pic of it just before I put it away...

And then I had to figure out what I was going to stitch on next.  I've been commissioned to stitch Biancabella for someone.  But the fabric for it isn't here yet.  I've been in a funk lately... so I figured I needed a new start (I love those) and I needed something bright and fun.  So I picked Ophelia's Pearl on SMF Watersprite linen.  I've been stitching on it for a few days, so here's a WIP pic.

I didn't realize from the chart photo exactly how violently orange this mermaid is!  =)  Anyways, I should get back to stitching.... I don't have much left to finish that tail fin off!
