elmpixie hasn't posted pics of the things I sent her so thought I would - I was to make her a necklace and something extra and she asked me to send her beads so she could make some jewelry herself - which I would love to see if she gets them finished!

         

there is an assortment of semi-precious stone beads in 4 to 8 mm size rounds for her to make a bracelet and necklace that she had an amethyst pendant for (prehnite, amethyst, moonstone, sodalite), sterling findings and clasps and some labrodrite to start another necklace with, a necklace I put together to her specifications and extra beads for her to make a bracelet out of, the finished necklace (prehnite, carnelian, smokey quartz, and pietersite), two pairs of earrings - one with pietersite and prehnite to match the necklace I finished and one of prehnite and amethyst to match the one she wanted to make herself, and a brown jade carved pendant that had a dragon on one side and a horse on the other side, on a brown cord.

hope you liked it all!

Yikes, I can't believe I forgot to post pictures of the thoughtful packages I recieved from MommytheMaid and CamOovas. It's been a hectic, stressful past couple of weeks.

Anyway- here are the pictures...

MommytheMaid made me a cover for my sewing machine. It even has a pocket to store various sewing notions.


and CamOovas made a wonderful piece of felt artwork. It is 8X10 and in my favorite shades of blues and greens.


Here is a close up- I really like how CamOovas matched the thread to the felt- very professional looking!!


Thank you so much ladies, and sorry it took me so long to post pictures

I, also, have been a big procrastinator when it comes to posting pics, but I have a good excuse!  I wore my awesome new fingerless mitts from girlosun_9 to work last week, and forgot them there over the weekend.  So here they are! I love them and they fit perfect and they are warm and cozy!

thanks! I had a great time making that particular necklace - so much so that I went and bought a bunch of pendants so I could make more that are sort of along that style...

I really want to see what elmpixie makes with the beads I sent her, so I hope she sends me a link...

I sent this out in the IYP swap to one of my partners

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285684.msg3266868#msg3266868

but I don't wear jewelry because I am allergic to almost all metals so I only make them for other people.
