Carnival Blog: My Summer Designs
For our newest Carnival Blog, I choose this topic: It's Summer time! Tell us about your upcoming or current Summer inspired designs!
Well, as usual, Summer comes and goes so fast that as far as crafting goes, it is almost time to start thinking of the Fall. Although I had so many ideas of which I was going to create something, even so far as buying all the beads (for my jewelry); or yarn (for my knitting/crochet) shop. But as usual “time waits for no one”.
So with all these glorious Summer ideas in my head, and taking a vacation to visit my cousins in Chicago in which I made the children (3 of them) quilts – I did manage to make a few new additions to each shop.
From my shop http://MagdaleneKnits.etsy.com – my newest additions are this adorable little summer dress I call “Good Day Sunshine”; I also added two sets of little Maryjanes with matching headbands: one in plum with violet insoles, and the other in Ivory with rose insoles.
When my fingers are numb from all that crocheting, I take a break and create something for my jewelry shop: http://MagdaleneJewels.etsy.com – One is a 17” necklace of Swarovski Pearls and Swarovski Peridot Crystals; since Peridot is the birthstone of August, I also made a pair of Lt Peridot and Peridot Swarovski Crystal earrings; from my glorious garden I choose this red rose made of polymer clay with Sterling heart links, surrounded by Siam Swarovski Crystals, and finally last week I finished these Clear Crystal Swarovski Teardrop earrings.
With one month left of summer, I still have a few pieces to finish and add to both shops. In the meantime, hope you enjoyed my summer showcase!
