PIF Received - and Updates



I opened my mailbox this week to find a stunning pinkeep from Carol. I'm truly in awe of her finishing on this one - the pinkeep has a lovely cording around the outside in addition to the pins, and I know if I attempted something so complicated I wouldn't get it looking right. It's a Waxing Moon Design called Winter Cardinal.

I also have an update on La Epoche Nouveau - the Dimples Design piece I'm working on. Although the picture doesn't do it justice, the blending filament and beads are making it very sparkly.

I've managed to complete one of the two PIF's for this month, and am hoping to have the other one completed shortly so I can send them both out.

Karin, I love your La Epoche!! It is just gorgeous!! And the PIF from Carol is sweet, isn't it? Carissa had a thing about cardinals this December, and I thought they were just lovely as could be. But, your "...Nouveau" really takes all prizes! Deb

THat's a lovely pif gift from Carol. Lucky you.

Spookily enough I was just looking at the Dimple design faberge eggs and they look stunning! I bet they look even nicer in real life.
