Cross

Cross

    This cross pendant was found in the Italian magazine,  Il Mio Chiacchierino.  I made this for my sister's birthday, last month.  This was a great challenge!!  It was written for needle but I used the shuttles...4 SHUTTLES AT ONCE!!  I couldn't let my mind wander.  I used four strands of sewing thread to make it.

 Front/back...Back/front..

     She has an LWML convention coming up, this will go great with her convention.

      When we moved up here, I had to leave a lot behind.  One of the things was a large collection of Workbaskets.  Thankfully, I found a couple at a local yard sale.

Crochet

Crochet 

    My aunt sent me some crocheted egg parts to put together.  She had received them from a friend.  The eggs were intended, to be stiffened.  Instead, I sewed them up around a plastic egg and decorated the the middle section.
