I promise to be back with a quick (hahahaha) recap of my trip to Vegas, but I seemed to have acquired some sort of V(egas)T(ransmitted)D(isease) while there that has left me with barely the energy needed to get out of bed and downstairs to snuggle my puppies and drink tea. Bleh. I am feeling much better today than yesterday and hoping tomorrow finds me back on schedule. I would like to get something off my worktable so it’s not quite the disaster photo it was last week
I didn’t want to neglect my blog too much though and I have been waiting for today so I can share a blog post from another needleworker that inspired me to try making a bit of jewelry!
Mayté is someone whose stitching blog I’ve followed for quite some time. She shared on her blog, in July 2012, a gorgeous bracelet she had made using mother of pearl buttons. She was also generous enough to share some instruction* and photos of how she did it. It was one of those “aha” moments for me where once I saw what she had created, and I saw how she had created it, I knew I could do it myself. Ever since, I’ve been studying bracelets at the jewelry counters and saying to myself “I can do that” and I’ve been collecting buttons for my own. My only remaining decision is whether to create the actual bracelet part myself or purchase a redi-made one.
*you will probably have to translate her blog.
