Did you know?

A "Pandula" is a flower which blooms only in one's imagination.

Camera phone pictures.


I know this pic looks blue and pink, but it is really done in two different purples.  One has alot of pink tones, it is called 'Berry', the other is a bluer purple called 'grape'.  The beads are also grape color. 

They are lovely with the purple tones in the Cedar wood.  

Wish the phone camera gave truer color...most of the time it does.

Cute, cute, cute.  

Building my inventory.

I adore tiny 'lil baskets!


And this one is about the tiniest that I make.  Great for business cards!

Cedar center with dark brown and teal threads.  I think those tiny 'lil beads make it so cute!

Think i will do one with a "berry" color next.  It looks so nice with the Cedar.

Three completed this week!


Decided that the messenger bag project was taking too long.  I really don't have time for "free" work.  Free because it was for me.  

So it became a basket.

Then I did another one with a Live Oak center.

And then a tiny Cedar one.

Supposed to be up around 80 degrees here in St. Aug.  tomorrow!  Now if the pollen doesn't kill me sales should be good at the farmers market!  Wish me luck.

I absolutely adore the earth tones of this one!


Gotta love when a plan comes together!

Live Oak center, a blend of pine needles and grasses for the "coils", with an espresso color thread, along with an amaretto color thread.  Mother nature's colors are so awesome.

The ones with bright color thread are great, folks love them!  But for me, this aesthetic is my favorite.  Just let nature shine to it's beautiful 'best advantage'.  No bright colors competing.  

I love the richness and tones of the browns and greens. 

Some day I might even have to keep one!  

Now for a few rows on my " box " purse/messenger bag.  It has been sadly neglected.  I have been busy with custom work and gathering supplies.  

I also worked on sanding 21 pieces of wood for centers.  My compromise was the wood lol.  Even though I should/could have been stitching I really wanted to be outside for the beautiful weather we have had this week.  It is cold again today, so I am happy to stay in and stitch.

Guess. I had better get to it.

Some days you get the bear...


And sometimes the bear gets you.  I. Am not sure wgo got who, but after ripping it apart 3 ( yes three) times I finally have somethingthat I like.

I have always loved red and yellow together.

Pine tree bloom!

I went into panic mode for Pine needles.  Off I went early yesterday to gather since it was such a beautiful day.  This is the first thing I saw.  

Mother nature at her best.

Then, even though I did break down and buy needles (the weather has had everything too wet here to gather myself), I also got these...

My friend Dana hooked me up too.  I love having your support and Help Dana.  Thank you.

My week is very full this week, so I am off to the Pine needles

Talk to you soon.
