Boho Chic Dresses with Boho Earrings

I believe boho style was created for hot summers just like this current one. I also have several loose, boho chic dresses and skirts, and I really love them. It really is a great feeling when the wind blows through them!

I've made these earrings for myself at first as I fell in love with these amazing turquoise Czech glass beads and they felt perfect for my loose white summer dress. On this picture you may see the earrings with “Gradient Chiffon Maxi Skirt” of mabeldress.com.

Ellen - who is my nice costumer on Etsy - wrote about these vintage inspired earrings in her review: „Great color, great beads and fun to wear!”
I agree wholeheartedly with her, it is really fun how these beads react to every small head movement!

Flowers on Earrings, Flowers on Coasters

Boho Floral Earrings for this Summer

I think polka dots and flowers are always amazing and a perfect choice for a boho summer day. If you click on the picture you can check the other two pictures that my amazing customer, Melissa has sent me. The art photos were taken in her studio, by her friend and fellow photographer Elizabeth, Liz Godfrey Photography.

Floral Fabric Coasters

I purchased these rose patterned fabrics back in Naples, Italy. After the click you may see other pictures as well, where you can observe even more closely how these reversible coasters are actually made of four kinds of rose fabrics; red, yellow blue and green roses.

Earrings with Roses

If we are talking about Naples, Italy, these roses also came with me home to join the red Czech glass beads on these earrings.

Quilted Pencil Case Rollin Rollin - Work In Progress

The end of the school year is coming. In the class of my niece the parents decided to give quilted pencil cases as presents to the teachers and they asked me to make them. I started to collect together fabrics in a way that they, while not looking all the same, belong to the same family. These rose covered fabrics were purchased back in Italy and they look beautiful together.

 As today is a Work In Progress Wednesday, I will step back in time for a bit and show you this afternoon’s WIP pencil cases! Here the cases are already finished up and I just have to make the room for the pencils. 

     
 
Waiting to fill up:


 I loaded the pencils, so if I roll up the case I can decide where to sew the button to close it up:


 They are finished!


I posted them this evening and I hope that not only will they get to there in time but the teachers will like them as well!

And here is a special, really lovely post from my Quiltsy team on Etsy about 2 team quilts. I've also sent two 4 patch blocks to Patricia and after this long travel I could find one of them on the 2nd quilt! :) Thank you so much for your beautiful work!

Fabric Coasters - Work In Progress

 

(First thing first: I am afraid that blogspot has a problem with the greens, because I have no idea how my lovely pastel greens became these wild wild greens on these photos. Sorry!)

These Shabby Chic coasters are almost finished, I've already sewed the green binding for it. The binding that is folded back is being held by the pins while I sew it down with my sewing machine on the front side "in the ditch".


Previously I always did the last sewing on the back by hand, but with lot of practice I finally learned how to do it with my sewing machine. I really loved to sew these last closing stitches with my hands in a comfortable armchair in front of the television, but I do have to admit that this way is a lot faster and thanks to all the practice by now it looks just as good.

Fabric Journal Reloaded

I am working on a couple of new fabric journals as even though I know that modern tools are very helpful, but I trust that there are others in the world like me, who actually like to note down their thoughts into a notebook, to scribble down a good receipt quickly or to happen to design their very next crafting project.

I will get a few pictures of the new ones as they get finished, but in the meanwhile here is two of my fabric journals which I have taken some new pictures of. My lovely Canon 40D camera is still quite new for me and I still have to learn a lot but I already love the pictures that I am able to take with it very much.

One of them is this beige-vanilla journal with the rosebuds and lace, really womanlike piece, even a bride could take quick notes of her wedding ideas in it.


I know Christmas is still pretty far off, but to look at a Poinsettia is always very pleasant, and I especially liked this Scottish tartan fabric alongside it. :)

Quilting and Beads

I’ve been thinking about it for weeks before (or instead of) falling to sleep, I even saw its color in front of me. Then newer colors as well that could also make it work. Finally last week I bought the new pintuck foot for my Elna 7300 and began to actualize.


Even though the foot didn’t work out (or I am clumsy), I still didn’t give up and kept trying until I achieved the result that I wanted to.


And here comes my favorite part where I already embroider the beads. :)

Every beautiful item is from Sandra's shop, Azulado on Etsy. You can find it here:

A few days before Christmas, our Etsy friend Sandra lost her husband to cancer. It was discovered in an advanced state and he was gone in a matter of months, forty years old. Sandra and her husband were self employed as restorers of historical tiles, so seven or eight months before his death they weren't able to work. He, too ill, she, taking care of him. They have a five years old boy.

Sandra's Etsy team, EST spirit wants to help her, and so we are organizing a raffle to collect money. There are more than FIFTY prizes to be won, all of them donated by her team members. We will run this raffle for ten days, and at the end of these ten days, more than FIFTY WINNERS will get a prize. There are items for women, men and children, for every taste. To win, you can buy tickets for 5 USD.
