Making jewelry today





Hi all. Sometimes I need to give my brain something to do besides hook. Don't get me wrong, I am obsessed with hooking. But today I decided to make jewelry. I made earrings...and earrings....more earrings,....some necklaces too!

I am just about finished with the hooking project for my front door. But I remembered that in May I hooked a mat for the fourth of July for the front door! So that's up now and I can finish the other one for the rest of the summer.

Yes, my front door is Bright blue! The outside is red stucco with a khaki trim. Just like the one I'm hooking above!! The house was white when we got married. Not for long though. Anyone who knows me knows I couldn't live in a white house. I LOVE COLOR!! When we redid the kitchen the walls were done in a brick red. Then last summer I decided they needed to be turquoise. Well that turned out bright blue, about like the front door. So last week I repainted it the original Boticelli Red. Marvolous dahling....I'll show pictures next time.

Let the beauty we love be what we do.

'Til next time,

Sheri

Hi Sherri!

I was driving down Jefferson this morning, and low and behold, thought I saw what was maybe your house. Well.......now that I've seen what you hooked for the door.....I know it's your house. How cute! Also, please use the birdcage idea! I finally can see all my earrings at once, and am wearing pairs I forgot I had! Hope to see you Wednesday!

Thanks, Dulcy. For those of you that may not be familiar with Dulcy's blog..www.dulcysdoorstep.blogspot.com/ she had the greatest idea of using an old birdcage as an earring holder. She hung the earrings on every horizontal bar!!! CUTE!!
