Really Red For Hearts Day!! ( And very late to the party!!)

The party I speak of is the "Grow Your Blog Party !! Anyone who may be visiting as a part of this wonderful event I apologize for my tardiness  I have been teaching for most of the day and prior to teaching I participated in the National Day of Service to honor Martin Luther King Junior and his Birthday.

I have just moved my Studio at Artful Dimensions Gallery in Fredericksburg, VA and much of my time has been taken up with the resettlement from Studio 7 to Studio 5.

Before the move I completed this free form bracelet to have it ready for any Christmas sales.  It got lots of attention but the right customer did not find it.  So now it will be on display for the Valentines season. Each one of the free form beaded pieces that I create is an adventure in creativity.  I do not use patterns and I try to include as many interesting and unusual bits and beads as possible


   

For the closure on this piece I used a vintage glass button.




This week I put together a few collaged fabric and felted pins.  The hearts are cut from some scraps of left over felting projects, a few bits of old lace, some crystals and blanket stitch all came together quite nicely, I think.



Now I must be off to visit some of my blogging friends at the Grow Your Blog Party ! First I must turn off the Robot ID so folks can move along with their party hopping!! A very special thanks to Vicki at
 Two Bags Full for arranging the whole shindig!!
Welcome to my blog and thanks so much for leaving a comment!!

Wow, Elizabeth! It looks like you're a bit of a jack of all trades! I'm kinda that way too.. Anything artistic, and I want to try it; from baking, to crocheting, to art-journaling, etc., etc., etc.!! Love the beaded Christmas (jennibellie) baubles you made in a previous post! Gorgeous, and I can only hope to try my hand at those eventually!.. Nice to meet you via Grow Your Blog, and hope you're enjoying the weekend! ~tina

Hi Elizabeth
Just visiting to say "hi" and to say what a clever artist you are - that particular bracelet and your fibre and lace heart are both beautiful - just a small sample of your incredible skills.
I do hope you get to meet some lovely new bloggers here during this event organized by dear Vicki.

Sending hugs to you from a very hot and burnt piece of land where we live in Australia!
Suzy
