International Charm Day!! Giveaway

It is International Charm Day!!! I have meager offerings, but the thought of this celebration intrigued me. Thanks Amber Dawn!!!!!!!

This week has been quite busy and although I did fiddle with a few charms, I wasn't happy with them and wasn't going to post them, hoping I had time to create others.....I did not...
So, here they are......my little cloth "nest" charms to celebrate Spring. I used a cloth image of nests and added silk ribbon embroidered flowers, painted blue pearls for robin eggs,a tiny gold metal bird charm and button hole stitching around each one then added a jump ring and tiny lobster clasp. I wish they were more imaginative...sorry Amber Dawn :0-(

I was going to head to town today in hopes of giving them away however I have a very sore nerve(?) in my foot which has prevented me from walking. Hopefully this will go away by Saturday and my next CQ class. I don't remember injuring my foot, so I'm blaming it on aging???? Anywho.......I want Amber to choose one and the other two will be gifties for two of you who read and commented on this post. I will give commenters a number and use the random counter tomorrow to pick two winners. Have fun and good luck.

I will be prepared next year!!!!!!! Watch out!!!!

  2. ~*OOH! WOW! No need to be sad about these charms Pat!*~ I love them all and it not easy to choose one. However- The one that I decided to choose after much thought, is the nest with three eggs at the very bottom.

    ~*Each one is so pretty!*~

    Thank you SO much for joining, advertising and spreading the cheer Happy Charm Day Pat!!*~

  4. Hi Pat :) I think I 'met' you way back on Artezine, or maybe it was when we were on the Yahoo 360 blog ? Anyway, I've been keeping my eye on your works and must say how grogeous they are ! You have such talent and I'm not afraid to say that I feel a wee bit of envy ;)
    Your charm offerings are so delightful, I don't understand how you can think they aren't 'enough', they are truly beautiful. Had you added more items then, I think, they would have been 'too much'. Perfect the way they are :)

    I'll also add that your music selection is also wonderful.

    Take care Pat, Happy Charm day !! Tracy ♥

  21. Pat,

    Sorry your foot is hurting..I have bone spurs in my heels so I can relate to foot pain!

    Your charms are...well, they are charming. :0) I think they are just adorable..funny how we discount the turnout of some things because we didn't get to spend the time we had wanted to. Never the less they turned out just great.
