Good News For The Sisters

Some of you are familiar with the story of my stitch group, Sisters In Stitches.  We all love to stitch, we get along extremely well, we love to talk and share stories.  But geographically, we're all over the map -- 82 miles at the farthest.  And in Atlanta traffic, that can mean some serious time on the road.  So our search for a relatively centralized location for our stitch days began, and finally we have found a place! Yay!  Renee found out that Cherokee County has some pretty nice meeting rooms that we can reserve for a day of stitching for a nominal price.  We had our first stitch day there on Saturday and we were all pleased.  And now we're booked through the rest of 2013.  Of course, I forgot my camera last Saturday, but will remember it next month for some stitch day photos.  I'd say that is a great find for the Sisters In Stitches!

In other crafty news, Sheila and I got together last week to once again to work with Ice Resin.   I posted about it the last time we worked with this product.  It's not a difficult project, but a little bit of a production because you have to make at least an ounce of it for it to mix well.  Believe me, a little of this stuff goes a long way, and you can't save it mixed for next time.  So it's nice to have a lot of jewelry pieces to pour into when you mix up a batch.  Here's what I came up with.
And once again, I am camera challenged, because I didn't get Sheila's creations in the photo.  My pendants turned out pretty well, and I'd like to make some more of these using different materials.  YouTube is a great source of ideas for these.  This is a fun, easy and not very expensive project for all of you who like to create jewelry!
