My friend Denise, Lace Rn, and I don't get to actually get together very often, even though we only live about 5 minutes away from each other. I'm a teacher, and she's an emergency room nurse. I work 8-3:30, Monday through Friday. She works 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. whenever she is scheduled. We talk on the phone almost every day, but we're lucky to actually see each other a few times a year! Tuesday was one of those lucky days!
Back when I first started blinging shuttles, Denise was able to come over one day, and we played around. I think we blinged half a dozen shuttles, and we were thrilled! This time, we got carried away, and between the two of us, we must have decorated two dozen shuttles!
I had so much fun arranging the shuttles into flowers. Spring must be in the air! I just can't part with this group. I think I'll be selfish and keep all of them for myself!
These three shuttles were decorated with fabric from Bree,
and these three shuttles were decorated with paper from Marty. I'm saving them for future giveaways on my blog. The pictures are terrible, but the shuttles are beautiful!
I really love the way the black and white paper shows up on these Clovers! Sorry, everyone... these are all mine! However, if you'd like some black and white paper, I still have a ton of it left! Just send me your mailing info.
This batch is going with me to the lace event in Lafayette, Indiana, in April. Denise and I are so excited about going! Who knows, if you come up to me and tell me you read my blog, you just might walk away with your favorite!
Denise found these adorable little frog containers at the dollar store. They're filled with a skein of HDT and a blinged shuttle. Tatters will be able to find them on the raffle table in Lafayette.
Yes, we prepared more raffle items! Denise filled these adorable little chests with Lizbeth thread and Sew Mate shuttles. The colors of all the items coordinate!
I found these little chests at Hobby Lobby. They have thread, EZ bobs, and blinged shuttles inside.
Last, but not least, Denise and I put together shuttle blinging kits! Each kit has a shuttle, an assortment of paper, and gems.
I suppose we went a little crazy, but we had so much fun! Hope to see you in Lafayette!
Oh, and Geraldine... we ate most of the chocolate you sent... it was scrumptious!
What a Day!!!
