More quilts

These two quilts are samples for work. I love to play with color and love to sew up two of something in different color ways just to see the possibilities. I really thought the pink would be my favorite but the green is really speaking to me.

Sara is modeling one of the necklaces I made tonight, I found the butterfly pin at the thrift shop in Creighton for a buck, the beads are out of an assortment pack I bought years ago and the chain is leftover from charm bracelets. I love to repurpose jewelry and make something old new again. I made a few more goodies but no pic's tonight. I picked up quite a few cool things at the thrift shop today, it was a fun trip and now I have something new to build with for spring jewelry. I also have mom's box of beads and old jewelry. (oh my it's like a treasure!) I used a gold link chain and some of her beads tonight too. Thanks Mom!
Sara bought robot charms while in Omaha, tonight I helped her put them on chains. I tried to add beads and more charms but she vetoed me and insisted she liked them plain. Oh she did steal the pearl beads I picked up from the thrift shop today to layer with the robots......I kind of like her funky/girly style.
