Rainbows and Squares

That's what I've been up to. I beaded these hanging crystal pendants. The crystal at the bottom, as well as some of the faceted beads catch sunlight and make little rainbow patterns all around the room.

As for squares, I had some small pieces of fleece that I cut and pieced into a blanket top. From this little project I learned that fleece can be difficult to sew - the pieces have different levels of stretch, so it was a bit of a challenge. My seam ripper came in handy a time or two (okay, five), but eventually, I got it. This is not completed - it still needs a backing - but I think it will be cute. It is for the quilt ministry.

What are you working on? Leave a link or a comment (family friendly please!) so we can see.



And if you don't have a project, you can still leave a comment...you could wish my dad a Happy Birthday! He's 80 today, but sometimes, he still acts like a little kid (wink). Happy Birthday, Dad! (I made him a card too!)

Awwww, the quilt top is just adorable. It will surely be a wonderful gift of snuggly love.

Your crystal creations are amazing, too, Dearie. You have so, so many talents.
