Ohm Necklace

Ohm Necklace


Posted on Apr 3, 2006

I bought this Ohm pendant for my Aunt.  I didn’t want to just send the pendant by itself, so I made the beaded necklace to go along with it.  It was very simple.  There is something about the instant gratification of getting a necklace and getting to wear it immediately.  My Aunt emailed me on Friday that she received it and loved it.  That makes me...

Heirloom Necklace

Last year I threw a 'Welcome Baby' party for my newest nephew.  One of the activities I had was creating an heirloom necklace for my sister-in-law.  I found the idea of making a necklace while surfing the web for baby shower ideas.  This idea had people sit around in a circle, add a bead to a string and make a wish or a thought for the new baby.  Well, being the crafty but shy gal that I am, the thought...

My cool Aunt from Florida was in town last weekend.  I had the opportunity to take Friday off and show her around town.  She loves Portland, but hadn't really seen the sites for many years.  We ate breakfast at Genies.  Then we headed to Powell's.  She hadn't been to Powell's since the remodel. We walked through all the rooms and just enjoyed talking leisurely.  I did buy my first...

Posted on Mar 2, 2006

So this is the latest thing I have been working on.  I decided to try doing crewel work on felt.  I love that you can get felt in all different colors and it's a lot cheaper than linen.  The design is my own.  I don't know if it's finished or not.  I'm just sitting with it for awhile.  I used regular embroidery thread on the inside flower.  It's not as easy to use as crewel...

Crewel Olympics

I am a sucker for the Olympics.  I don’t consider myself a sports person, but I love everything about the Olympics.  I think it’s because it truly comes down to the best athletes reaching their goals.  I figured this would be a great time to really dive into more crewel work.  I do it while watching movies so this shouldn’t be any different, right?  Well, it turns out watching the Olympics is...

Lint – Knitting Class

Lint – Knitting Class


Posted on Jan 31, 2006

My friend, Karen, and I took a knitting class this last Sunday at Lint in NW Portland.  This class was a 3 hour follow up course taught by Laura Irwin.  I didn’t think I would get much out of the class because the last time I took a knitting class, (at a different venue) I wasn’t thrilled with the instructor.  Laura was amazing.  She was straight forward, helpful, and very positive.  I got so much...
