After making 8 rows of peyote stiches on my choker and tried it against my neck I had to take them all apart. Having a short thick neck because of my weight, a wide choker is a no-no as it makes ones neck looking shorter and looks almost no neck is there at all. I would say this choker came out looking fabulous. I had beaded a button and made a loop for the closure and it works very well.

Right off i want to say no one was hurt, no property damge was done besides the truck. Friday September 2nd 2009 my husband took the bobcat to his sons house and was on his way home. After crossing over the railroad track his 1970 Dodge shuts off going up a small incline. After calling for a tow and sitting there for a while, directing traffic around the truck, it starts to rain and he decides to let the truck roll down the incline to get it out of the way. After rolling to the tracks it stops right over the tracks and another man came to help push it down a little more, the whistle blows, the rails comes down and they take off running and the train hits the truck. The Dodge is demolished, my husband is not hurt and is alright but I am thinking he is sick about what happened as he keeps talking about the mistakes he made, what he should have done or not done. I have pictures up in my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/11504745@N06/

September 30, 2009 we will be married 21 years.
I had made a couple of wedding samplers over the years that are a little bit fancy http://debbiesreflectionsofmyself.blogspot.com/2009/08/sre-wedding-announcements.html, this year i decided to have some fun and used Aunt Martha's hot iron transfer using the Hillbilly Doin's transfer. I hope my husband likes it as much as I do. I had fun making this one and it took me all of yesterday, only about 16 hours to start and finish with some breaks in between.
Looks like I'm getting a good booted kick in the caboose, doesn't it?

I didnt like the SRE pincushion, it looks like an egg so I redone it. I took it all apart and made it totaly different but I do like it this way best.
Will redo the photos in my Etsy shop and reactivate the listing, then will probably renew the listing.

I haven't touched this for years but decided in my mind to do some more work on it (I will believe it when I see it, LOL!). I used lots of hand dyed laces and silk ribbons I dyed myself.

I might as well keep going since I am on a roll. For some reason this might be what I am destined to create, who knows? So far I have made ATC's, postcards, 4x6", 5x7'" and 8x10"s. Maybe I will venture into a larger size. The only problem I see in working in a larger size is the peltex being too stiff to do the free motion stitching I am so fond of doing on my pieces.
