Fini!

Et voilà! J'ai fini!
I finally put the finishing touches on the contest piece. The very first color Joyce listed was "Bubblegum Pink". ;) As luck would have it, I've recently discovered that our local Liquidation World had received a shipment of various accent yarns in a myriad of colors. (Don't even get me started on that place. I could spend a fortune on BARGAINS! Darn my Rat-like hording quality...) :p
Anyway, the yarn was $2 a ball, or $3/2... Guess who's been spending $30 a pop on yarn ALONE on my little visits. All of these bellow were found in the bin.

*K, cute, funny story: Kirsten and I went to L.W. for some yarn. The balls are kept in a huge cardboard bin, and it pretty much looks like a bomb went off in it. Picture this; Kirsten to the side of the box, picking the desired yarn as I struggle to push the giant mound out of the way, butt wagging in the air à la Winnie the Pooh... LOL! *


You know, I usually wouldn't pick these colors, but I liked the texture of the Cici yarn. I'm not sure I'd like to work with the Cici all by itstelf (itstelf? What the heck am I drinking??? I mean itself, of course...), but when I put these three together (I simply lurved the mauve mohair!), they just worked for me. Knowing they were also on the list of preferred colors helped matters lots too. ;)

Now, I know that Joyce occasionally reads my blog, so I won't show you the piece in its entirety, but I'll give you a little teaser. I used artistic license of course, and added a few little "Jewels" touches. And you thought I was done with the beads... :)

Joyce, j'espère que tu aimes les couleurs que j'ai choisi. J'essaie de te l'envoyer cette semaine.


And yes, I am feeling better, thank you for asking. We're finally all back on track with school and work. I'm still tired, but I'm sure that once I finish my 112 hour catnap, I'll be just fine.

Well, I should go. I got a special request from the fabulous Miz M today, for some custom-made wrist warmers. Three pairs on the list actually. Need to make some for Miz M., Miz Bibi, and Miz Jin. Guess I better get busy eh?

Glad you are feeling better. The close up reminds me of a roadkill possum, but in a nice way...

Jewels said...

Oh M, I'm so happy you like them. I was so afraid they'd be too big. Wait 'til you see the ones I'm working in for Bibi, I made them in the ROUND! With a THUMB! LOL!

Guess who's gonna want a pair. ;)
