June Root For The Cannons!House:
Chudley Cannon EarringsProject Page Link (if available):Brief Description:
In honor of The Cannons I decided to recreate one of my favorite pairs of earrings that I lost sometime this winter.
They are made of awesomely sparkly ORANGE Swarovski crystal beads with a couple of black AB coated as highlights. The main bead is a good sized faceted round orange, that symbolizes the Quaffle (yes- it's orange for Chudly rather than red) and the bottom black discs symbolize Bludgers flying up to give the Beaters a run for their money. Project Picture:
The black is an AB, but the coating liked my camera a little more than usual... BEADS ARE FRUSTRATING TO PHOTOGRAPH!!!!
Catching up on comments, since it's slightly cooler tonight and I really wanted to post!lelyonna
, I can't wait to see your OWL when you finish. It sounds like a great project, and fun to get to create something you have had in mind for a while. Your oatmeal with cocoa sounds yummy too. Great start to the day. Those warmers are just adorable too!
There is never a bad time for tea.
To me, it's a necessity! Sounds good!pinkleo
Adorable hats, and for such a great cause! I love all of the variations. Plus that bath mat looks like it must be heavenly to rub your clean toes on after a shower. The texture is so neat! All I have to say about your shrines, is that I bow to them!!!!
Really, they are fantastic- so well put together and adorable. Every time I look I notice some other detail.
Beautiful Charms book, I love the idea of a charm bracelet inside too!ntrebleagain
I am just DYING to try that fudge recipe. It sounds nothing short of amazing!Moonflame
I love the colors and name of your Astronomy project! The swiffer covers are such a good idea too. I don't know if I like the blue or green one best. They are both so nice! I might attempt one again. For some reason I really screwed one up and gave up forever ago. I might have to revisit that sometime this summer.
The scissor holder is too cute. Very handy to have!Naantje
Lovely! All of the personalized details, and getting to learn a little about your culture is awesome. I bet she will adore it. And congratulations to your friend!DragonChilde
You are the reason I need to buy a pile of lemons at the store this week! YUM! The syrup sounds just perfect. I love lemonade too! I think I'll try putting some in some of that unflavored tonic water stuff for fizzy lemonade. Awesome idea. Ant Bee
Your beans look yummy. If I snag some good mint at the farmer's market tomorrow, I think I will give it a shot. The flavors really appeal to me!patty_o_furniture
Wonderful sounding salve! That's certainly important for summer.
I bet it smells nice too.Abbeeroad
Your pendant is gorgeous! Sea glass jewelry is one of my favorites, anything from the shore is great by me. I also have wicked bag envy. I really like that style.BadWolf
That patio looks professional! Wonderful job! I'm going to give your strawberry shortcake bites a shot too. Welcome to the HPC! netchez
That looks like a great phone cover! It's too bad it didn't fit, but I guess it's incentive for her since she seemed interested in getting one like yours.
You did a really great job!
I have a couple of update photos for Advanced Studies Friday on my quilt. I didn't get too far, since it was too hot this week, but here's an official update:
All of the existing strips in the final order for stitching. (Now hanging up and numbered)
Fabric I chose for the additional squares, and what I wanted to be which type of square.
Squares I cut. I have to do the strips for the large square block, but I haven't made it that far. I was really freaked out to cut at first. I didn't want to mess anything up! But it was really fun once I got going.
