Birthday Present for my Mother.

I finished my mother's birthday present and got it off in the mail today! Hopefully she will get it before this weekend's over! It's okay to post as she does not have a computer!

Are these not the cutest little faces????

I got this great beading pattern from Mary Hipple (she's on Etsy: wolfdendezigns38 - Be sure to check her out, her designs are really wonderful (and she's great to work with too).

If you really like this set of earrings I currently have another set listed on Etsy:

Tea Rose Halter Top

Okay - So I was gone for 2 1/2 weeks at my mother's following her knee replacement and I haven't posted since I have been back. I went into hiding!

She lives pretty much in a very rural area (aka . . boonies) and its a good drive into town to doctors or grocery stores. Needless to day, I did not get very much done on the things that I PLANNED ON FINISHING! Dang it all! I did get this done, however:

I also was able to get a lot of beadwork done and some designing of earring patterns too! So I have some new earrings that I have completed from Mary Hipples designs and a couple of my own design!

In the next 2 weeks (promise) I hope to have the bullion sleeve top done! (If it kills me) I will find the time to complete it as I want to wear it to my dh's parents 50th wedding anniversary towards the end of September.
