Marlene Brady takes things seriously when it comes to creating. I commented that an armful of bracelets would compliment African Stripes necklaces nicely . . . So Marlene made an armful -- fun aren't they?
Glen hails from down under and has given us a very green Mud Cloth necklace. She says, "I enjoyed working this pattern so much, I'm playing around with putting other colour combos together - none of them are African either." But isn't that the fun of these pattern sets.... making them your own. It's hard to believe sometimes that what you see are all from exactly the same pattern(s).
Marcie Picked up the colors for this Mud Cloth Necklace from the background fabric. Wearing them together makes an outstanding combination.
Peggy shows off what both a light and a dark background Love Letter Necklace will look like. The neat thing is that they are done in 10/0 Delicas. I asked to borrow the dark one as an example to photo in the eBook. I had fun as I met her down in Mass for dinner and watched her finish crocheting her necklace. She's good, real good, as she can work in a loud Irish Pub setting and finish up with an excellent invisible join.
I need to show you what Amy, one of the British participants, did. I'm intrigued with the forest colors she used in her Love Letters. I guess it sort of reminds me of Sherwood Forest and tales of Maid Marion. It's so clean and traditional, just not African traditional colors.
I think that every Monday should start off with beautiful things to look at. This post has a lot of that. I supplied the patterns, others did the work, beautiful work that I'm so happy to look at and share.
