Thank you SO much for all the well-wishes & emails! MWAH! I had a fabulous birthday. I got flowers and jewelry and Bare Minerals lip gloss and Philosophy Amazing Grace lotion and baking stuff and cash... And my mom & dad picked up my favorite treat (don't laugh): A Pepperidge Farms coconut layer cake. I have always LOVED that little cake. Yum.
Whew. And you know what? I don't feel one iota older. :D
I did finish up two more little gifts for the Christmas Hoard. Here is the shabby rose wristlet, using my favorite Durham blue rose print.
I didn't really use a pattern, but I did read a couple different zipper insertions and just picked my favorite (which was also the most common out there on the net.) I eyeballed the measurements. Here's what I used to get the contrast bottom band:
Top Portion - 8.5 x 5 inches
Bottom Band - 8.5 x 2.5 inches
Lining - 8.25 x 7 inches
I finished the Holiday Door Ornament from SWAK Embroidery. Isn't it CUTE?! Don't forget, the pattern & embroidery design can be found HERE.
I left off the fringe on the bottom, but I might add some to the next one. I also added some hot fix crystals to the centers of the snowflakes for some bling:
I'm off for the rest of the week, so hopefully I'll get lots and lots done!
