Dear readers, I need to ask you a question- do you know of any patron saints of lacemaking? I am working on a design that will incorporate religious medals and would like to use patron saints of lacemaking and needlework. The only one I know of is St. Catherine of Alexandria. I'm sure there are others. Also, where is a good online site to purchase religious medals- preferrably sterling silver? Please leave a comment or click the contact me button to email me. Thanks!
I have been putting together goodies for the upcoming blogversary giveaway. The thing that I'm still mulling over is whether I should do each prize by color or theme. Any thoughts?
We did not play in the Jeep much this weekend as Jim decided we had oodles of yard work and fall garden prep to take care of. It was very dusty, hot & uncomfortable. We put ice in the dogs' water bowls while we were outside & they really seemed to appreciate it. Even though it was hot, Lily Fey had to help me hang out clothes, pull up dead plants & she even brought me a goody- her slobber covered tennis ball. We played fetch until I was tired then retreated into the cool of the house. I was basically worthless the rest of the day.
The one big thing I did do was to finish embellishing a vintage brooch for the Camo Couture collection (debuting in late Spetember or early October). I also made progress on getting the patterns transcribed from my scribbling for the Romance of the Piney Woods Pattern Collection. Patterns will be available later this month.
Sorry for the lack of images. It was hot out & I was too lazy to get out in it more than was absolutely necessary. I will have some new eye candy up on the blog tomorrow for your enjoyment. Well, I'm off to the Atelier. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
