I hope that everyone has been able to celebrate a fantastic Holiday season so far. Less than a week to go until 2010!
My last holiday project was thought up, stitched up and given away all in under an hour. When I was in San Francisco a few months ago my friend was searching in all of the jewelry shops for a leather bracelet. She was on her way over this weekend for a girls night and I happened to be in the basement and spotted some suede lace that I had gotten to make straps. I didn't have anything to properly fasten a bracelet with, despite a box full of jewlery making supplies in the basement, so I just folded in the edges sewed on a snap.
It's a bit of a rush job, and I'm not sure it perfectly fits the vision, but I like the way it looks. I'm pretty sure that I'll be applying my usual one-for-me-one-for-you rule and making another one in the near future.
Today, though, all I made for myself was this.
It was delicious.
