So I’m back from another vacation. Life is rough. We spent the October break in Croatia with friends, enjoying the last few days of summer on the Adriatic coast before we prepare for the winter ahead.
But now it’s time to get back to real life. I mean it this time. I’m still determined to finish this 365 project, which means making and posting about just over 140 Things before the end of December. Pshaw. Easy peasy.
Today’s Thing is another little project from the summer backlog. I wanted to give Thing 44, a Swarovski necklace, to my sister, Heather, when I went back to Canada. It just needed a gift bag.
I rummaged through my Liberty scraps and found a tiny piece of the blue flowers from my Sorbetto blouse.
A silver velour lining cushions and protects the pearls and crystals.
I used a length of blue satin cord for the drawstring and the gift was ready.
And happily, the bag also just happened to be the exact right size for Heather’s sunglasses. Multi-purpose, baby!
