Rejuvenating Jewelry Case and Jewelry In June

"Hang on to it...you never know when you will NEED it again".
I'm patting myself on the back for hanging on to an old jewelry case that has been in service one time or another through a family thrift store, umpteen Junktique Booths, and now in Sue's Fiber&Fabric Studio.  All toll, it's spent as many as thirty years displaying shop/booth jewels or covered in dust while awaiting it's next assignment.  So, here it is...Rejuvenated in June 2017...along with a few Vintage Rejuvenated Jewels.
After a Steel Wool scrubbing and polishing, a new padded faux suede lining in the bottom and Windexing the plexi-glass...dadah...ready for Vintage Bling!  Oh, and several pieces of my new BoHo Line of Fiber&Bead necklaces and Wrap Bracelets.
As you can imagine, I am still patting myself on the back for hanging on to this jewelry display case...it's now a 'Family Heirloom' and back in service....as it should be!  If you are interested in seeing more displayed Jewelry...both Vintage Bling and Boho Fiber/Bead pieces...here are links to Sue's Fiber&Fabric Studio Facebook Page.  Thanks for Looking and Liking!

Better Knitter...Better Blogger...Really!

Truth be told, I've about given up becoming a 'Better Knitter', and by the looks of my Blog Stats the same could be said for my Blogging.   Oh sure, I have a list of excuses about as long as the last cast on I did for a lace shawl...several years ago.   I guess I'll have to call it finished since it's about as likely I'll knit or purl back across those kabillion cast on stitches as my going to Estonia.  I should have known from previous projects that called for really, really thin lace weight yarn and really, really, really, tiny needles on a really, really long circular thingy.  And, I really, really thought I wanted to be a Lace Knitter!  
So much for Vogue Knitting's 25 TIPS FOR FASTER KNITTING.
SALE...$9 per hank
 And so much for Knit Pics gorgeous lace weight yarn intended for a shawl from
Knitted Lace of Estonia!
 
Hmmmm...I betcha #1 is Post More Often...Really!

Patriotism by the Bundle

Late in May I began going through my Patriotic Fabric Stash to get ready for a display at Sue's Fiber&Fabric Studio.  What a surprise to discover my Red, White and Blue Stars, Stripes and all things patriotic was hardly enough to be raising 'Old Glory' up the flag pole.  But, as I have done for earlier holidays and celebration events, I managed to do July 4th justice.
Who knew you could Bundle Patriotism!!!
