Sorry it's been quite awhile posting anything on my blog. Time has flown by and I've been busy with different things. I have seen a lot of handmade purses on IG and thought I'd give it a try. It was quite a project. I ordered yarn from Amazon, but didn't get all of it and had to start over. I used a macrame cord as seen above on the gray purse. Needless to say, my poor hand and arm had to take a rest at times, but I continued on and finished it.
I've been busy with other projects, too, and yesterday evening made four wall hangings for my sisters. I will host a birthday/Christmas lunch next Friday. I hope they like my projects. They were super easy to make.
There is a rope cord behind for hanging. I got it from the Dollar Tree. The letters came with it. The dies are from Concord&9. I used glitter paper and fine glitter. A seam binding bow was made to finish the project. I have in mind which sister to give each one to. I asked my husband if he could guess which one I had in mind for each sis and he guessed right, lol!
Another easy make. I painted the snowflakes white and added glitter. The images are stickers from Echo Park. Fine glitter added to the background. Dots added to the snowflakes and a seam binding bow to finish.
Another one using stickers, snowflakes, fine glitter, and a bow. This one is for my sis, Cecilia who loves snow. Well, she just might get her wish this year, lol!
And, for the final wall hanging...
I think I got glitter happy on this one. It really doesn't look as bad in real life. I think it's the way the light is catching it. Anyways, my sis, Christina, loves red and gray. She has a Ohio State family room with scarlet and gray colors.
Also, for my sisters, I found cute little bell ornaments and they light up.
As I was checking out, the lady asked if I had four sisters and I said..."Yes!" She then replied and said that she has five! And, when growing up they all lived on a dairy farm. They worked hard and she is still working at keeping busy.
Believe it or not, I have made Christmas cards, but I'll post them another time. I hope you all are doing well and may you have a wonderful blessed holiday season! Take care!
