My Beaded Stilletto with a turkey lacer

I have been working on making beaded quilting stilletos   (stilletoes??)  this weekend.  I have LOTS of beads from my jewelry-making days and I found the turkey lacers on Amazon. 

Here is the one that I made for myself. I added by initial on a ribbon tied to the end.


I plan to give 5 of these to the upcoming quilt show boutique for the Heart of the Triad Quilt Guild
in Kernersville.  There is a meeting tomorrow night about Cotton Theory.  I am signed up for the all day workshop on Tuesday.  I really enjoy learning new things and purchased a video on Cotton Theory several months ago.  Of course, I haven't "had time"  to watch it.  Or is that "haven't taken time" to watch it??  No matter, I'll get to learn it LIVE on Tuesday!

Block of the Month at Sewingly Yours

I am participating in The Block of the Month at Sewingly Yours. Here are my 2 blocks from last month. There are 2 color ways and I am doing both. I could not decide which one I liked best.  We meet again next Tuesday night for the next block. We originally paid $5 for each block and as long as we complete the block and bring it back to the next meeting, we get the next block free! What a deal!
