DreamBird Shawl Practice

Hello,

When I first saw this dream bird shawl a few year ago, I wanted to make one so badly.  I didn't mind paying for the pattern either.  But after I read comments from people who followed the pattern, they said the pattern was confusing.  Therefore, it hold me back from purchasing the pattern.  Not long ago I started to search for tip on making the DreamBird shawl and I found a few that said the pattern was easy to follow.  All I need is to follow a one page line by line instruction.  I decided to buy the pattern and gave it a tried.  Here is my first feather practiced using 4 ply worsted yarn. It took me a long time but I did it the very first try.  Very easy to follow just need two stitch markers (I used scrap yarn) and a row counter. 


Stay tune for my first completed DreamBird shawl.

Wedding Cards

Hello,

I was debating to continue blogging or to stop because I am completely lost interest now.  It used to be exciting now it's like a chore.  I still make ton of stuffs though.

Any way I'm going to give it until the end of the year.

I have a few wedding cards to share since it is wedding season.

I saw this card on pinterest.  I thought it is so cute.  

 My friend Elisabeth gave me some wedding stickers.  I quilled the rings then added the stickers.




 This last one is  popular.  I made a few of them and they were all sold.
Thanks again for looking.  Have a lovely day.

Echo Of Kindness Note Card

Hello,

After an extreme cold Winter, we finally had a taste of Spring yesterday and I also had a taste of going back to work.  I work part time mostly on weekends sometime weekdays when the temperature reaches above 40 degrees and stop working when the temperature goes below 40.   You know what it wasn't too bad going back to work because while at work I thought of  $$$$ and more yarns. lol

I have another Spring card to share today.

It is a very simple card.  I used one of my favorite stamps from Stamping Up called Echo Of Kindness.

Have a marvelous week!

Helen
