Seems like a long time since I’ve been in my sewing room!
I was away May 16-21 in Kansas City MO. for Spring Quilt Market. Market is always a highlight for me as I love to see what’s happening and see friends I’ve known for years.
Clover presented new items:
Those fun three-sided boxes called
Clam Shells. Oh what fun I’ve had making these. Please see The Clover Blog for a full lesson on how to make them. Clover sells the insert and the rest is up to you. Fran has some fantastic ideas for embellishing…check it out.
On the market today are a myriad of artful pendants that are just waiting to be added to your French Knitted Necklaces. We have had a wonderful time embellishing our French Knitter creations and are continuing to think of new ideas.
This week we want to show you some advance techniques just to get those creative juices flowing…possibilities abound!
Those who have seen this Pink and Gray Necklace and Bracelet set at some of our shows have picked it out as a favorite.
