My Creative Space...

Yikes! Has it really been two weeks since my last post? Time has just been flying by, I've been so hard at work on so many new projects.
This sort of project for instance...
A new necklace design that I am putting the finishing touches on...I'm loving the rich violet and amethyst hues!

*
And here are some other things occupying my desk right now--a new little stash of beautiful threads, scooped up last weekend during a visit to the local embroidery shop:

{Skeins of Hand-dyed Cotton Thread}

*
And another view of the work in progress...
It's almost done, just needs a few more links on the chain!

*

Also on my desk today (although not a project of my own) are the contents of a wonderful, fragrantly scented parcel that arrived yesterday afternoon from my friend Michaela all the way in South Dakota....

It was such a nice surprise to receive this care package bursting full of interesting goodies--best of all--an organic, hand-crocheted wash cloth and a stack of beautiful photographs--all made by the talented Michaela herself and packaged inside a violet and amethyst hued bag (we must have been on the same wavelength colorwise!) 

*
And speaking of gifts and surprises--I have something of my own planned this week for readers of my blog--I will reveal more in the next day or so :)

Until then, if you'd like to see what other artists are working on in their Creative Spaces this week--just follow this link!

Okay, first, the stash is a treasure to behold, and the work by far breathtaking... hence the need to inhale purposefully,

and then :)

You didn't! You make even the most modest of gifts look stunning with your sense of display and photography:)

Thank you, and you so deserve it, Kate Ally who makes the stellar soap will be pleased its being used by such a lady...
