What are you most proud of? I'm still having fun making handmade polymer beaded zipper pulls. This single bead I wrapped with a galvanized heavier gauge metal wire to make a pendant to attach to the zipper tab. Zipping with beaded pull adds is fun and fabulous!

Ok, Shoestring you continue to blow me away with all your beautiful creations! They're all wonderful! I enjoyed reading your bio...we have quite a lot in common except for our age. I'm hoping to show a few of my things as soon as I can get the pictures taken but in the meantime I'll continue to follow you and all that you share.

Hello Shoestring, thanks for your reply. I am so pleased every time I see a new project from you, but I just can't figure out how you get so much done!! I wish I had your energy! You have such a great sense of color, too. Keep up the good work!

Hi there sewodd. I have fun in the studio almost everyday. I'm 60 something, and retired. When I'm not sewing, I'm up on a ladder repairing walls on our old Victorian (restoration about 90% complete). Checking out my restoration adventure on my website,

Ooops there. I hit the enter button without proof-reading. I meant to say I hope you check out my website. It is an awesome old house, and we have stories and pictures of the former owners too. Some of them still roam the halls of our old Vic. Ha. Ha.

I just finished probably #17 Christmas stocking to give away, Since the holidays are coming, I thought I would share it and I've been looking in the computer for past ones to include. I just have to get going and get the pictures organized. Thanks for writing. You'll spur me on! I have quite a few past thing that I can share and will as soon as I can.

Almost ready with pictures. I've been taking photos of some of my other creations so I've been busy...inside shots of wall hangings, clothes, bags etc. is not my finest work....I do better taking shots with my flowers outside. Thanks for the push!

I just added my latest stocking (I think) so I'll be looking to see if it appears tomorrow. If it appears, I can do the same with a few others.
