Today was Alchemy’s last full day with me. I thought I’d show her how to make a few rings and earrings like the ones I sell at TheApple. First we had to spread out the supplies. I typically create jewelry in the basement but since the girls were gone I decided that we would work upstairs and enjoy the natural lighting. Alchemy decided she wanted to make a pink ring. So, first thing I did was make a pile of all potential beads/findings, etc. that might work for the pink ring. Here’s what we came up with! (Watch www.theapple.etsy.com for the listing that will be up in the next few days) Since it’s been such a joy to have Alchemy visit these past few days I thought I’d whip her a little quilt she can treasure forever. I combined a fun, bright striped fabrics with a few fabrics that I dyed myself. then I put together a simple four patch for this wonderful result. I would even say there’s enough room under there for a ‘Mr. Alchemy’ someday. Or she could even use it for a picnic at her next stop. Alchemy is all packed up and will be making her journey to Arizona tomorrow. Good-bye Alchemy! It truly has been fun and would love to have you visit anytime! I know my girls are going to miss you!
