Published

You know when you've had a glass or two of wine and you love everyone?
And you want to hug everyone and tell them you love them?*
(*I have to add here that when I wrote this I HADN'T HAD A GLASS OF WINE..I just felt the same warm feelings...)
Well...perhaps you don't but I do, and  blogging makes me feel like this.
There are people who comment without fail on my blog and to whom I can't reply with email, notably Heather and Connie and many others, and I would love to give you all a virtual hug. It so lovely to have you take the time to comment.
Not just you, but others.
 Thank you.
Now, I just thought I'd pop in with a creation I did a while ago but which is just about to appear in Quilting Arts emag. I'm sorry I can't link to it. I don't quite know if its available yet.
So:
 here it is in all its pinkness

 Available now ssshhhh you know where.
 In lovely silk and velvet and of course its in the worst colour to photograph. There's a matching heart which can be a pendant or a brooch. Also available.
The silk is shot lilac and orange which gives a luscious pink.
Or should I say raspberry?

Gosh you've really caught the light shining on the velvet Jackie. Gorgeous pieces. I have been wearing my necklace and brooch and they have been very well admired : )

I downloaded the e-mag this week, great work Jackie.

Heather said...

Lovely to hear from you again and thankyou for your virtual hug - just what I need. That cuff is gorgeous. If I wasn't so old and past it I would commission a velvet corset to go with it, but I fear it would be about 50 years too late!! Congrats on making it to the QA Emag.
