My contribution to the "Italian Basket" for a school raffle

I was asked for a $5.00 donation, but as you well know, i couldn't just do that.  I wanted to make something special that you couldnt buy with the money we would all donate.  Here is what i came up with.
Two hand towels, four napkins, and four wine glass coasters.

Lace page marker bookmarks in the hoop!

I saw a few appliqued in the hoop versions online, but i wanted some for gifts that were fancier.  So I came up with this freestanding lace/fabric combo.  I have the embroidery designs for sale on my WEBSITE on the bottom of the page.  Most formats are offered, and more can be created, just pick dst and add a note in paypal or email me directly

There are three different versions and each set contains all the letters of the alphabet plus a blank one to add your own font or embroidery design.

Here are the appliqued versions, also for sale.

These will make great gifts for teachers, and women of all ages.  I have some "manly" versions as well as some for teens, so check back soon as I need to make the samples for them.

Vintage Jewelry

I found a great site for supplies and i am awaiting the arrival of my second order.  In the meantime, i am trying to come up with some vintage looks for the brass, bronze and copper filigree findings i bought.
I hope to sell these at the wright college arts and crafts fair on sept 12.  Whatever I dont sell i will either put on my etsy site or website, i havent decided which as of yet.  Contact me if you wish to purchase any, as with most of my jewelry items, they start off as one of a kinds.

So I guess i made some progress, if you like any of my creations, feel free to email me.  If you are within the chicagoland area, come to the show, they look better in person.
