In this square, I tried to capture my two braids as I wore them as a little girl. Although I didn't do the ringlets on the ends, I still love how it turned out. Oh- and that necklace I'm wearing? It's one of those candy necklaces that get all sticky and leave a rainbow of colors on your neck-- because let's face it, those little candies didn't last long once you started tasting them! My little sister and I loved wearing those!
Okay, no story for this square... just a random pattern. I've just been calling it a "fishnet pattern".
You know I love rickrack by now. I saw a similar square in the Flickr group and thought I'd try to duplicate it somewhat.
A pink tiara with some sparklie beads-- 'cuz I love me some sparkle! I've never been in or won a beauty pageant, but I can appreciate a good tiara when I see one. I bought one when I turned forty-- because I realized I could. I use to make every friend who walked in the door wear it for a picture. It was so cute to see their expressions when they put it on-- it's like, kinda' magical in an inner-child, little girl kinda' way. A little felt heart-- I've been dyin' to stitch a blanket stitch! I love blanket stitching-- it's so fun, and looks so finished! I tried to do a little scandinavian-ish pattern inside, in tribute to the Danish roots on my mom's side.
Well, I'm still behind but I feel like I've made some headway. I'm loving this project. It's been so fun, and I've got to tell you-- your comments totally make my day!
