Aren't these earrings gorgeous? The picture doesn't do them justice at all! Wendy has a much better picture over on her blog
These are my gift from Wendy for her Pay It Forward giveaway. They are made with Lizbeth "Spring Fling" in size 80. When I opened the envelope there were a lot of "oohs" and "awes" as we looked these over. Thank you very much, Wendy, I love them!
Looking back over my blog posts I realized I hadn't posted what I gave for my PIF, inspired by Wendy's post
last fall. Medictabs,Robert and Suztats were the first three people to leave a message on my blogpost and were the winners. When I decided to do it I didn't have even a small clue of what I was going to send them, so it took a little while to get them done. But they finally were sent off.
I've always wanted to do some Crazy Quilting - but I don't quilt and rarely embroider, so it hasn't happened yet :) Instead I did a little "CQing" on Altoid tins for their gifts.
I added a few things on the inside. Each was different inside and outside, but similar.
The pink heart is a needle threader. The "match book" is a needleholder. Each one also got a decorated shuttle that coordinated with their thin, and a ball of J & P Coats size 80 tatting thread - it all fit inside the tin.
This was a lot of fun to do. And really nice to win Wendy's PIF. Thanks again, Wendy :-)
