Another trip to the Caribbean

This time, I’m sure I’ll be there longer than I was in Feburary.

I’m still missing some of my silks, in part 1 I need the missing black. And because that was missing I couldn’t stitch in some of the backstitching and it has also made me hold back on some eyelets in the corners. I’d call part 1 90% complete.

In this picture you can see some of the sparkle in the Champage Cocktail Mystique from Enchanted Fabrics.

I’m in love with the Rose Alabaster crystals…

The little beaded flowers are darling. Only had to frog 3 or 4 times before I found my rhythm on them.

The plans for my next exchange are starting to come together.

Nothings final yet, but I think I have the color palette. 😀

I also finished off and mailed! the blinged out OMFG tag.

A touch wonky. Me and the sewing machine had another disagreement. I didn’t want to pull it apart and re-do for fear of fabric shredding. *sigh*
