Wisteria and Aprons



I just wanted to share a photo of my beautiful wisteria vine in bloom. When you get near it you can hear the steady hum of the bumble bees enjoying it. My mail box is right under it, so it is kind of scary to get the mail this week!

Also, I just finished some cute little aprons, using iron on transfers of my original paintings. A running stitch of green embroidery floss accents the perimeter of the picture. I will be listing these on Ebay later. Come take a look!

I am hoping to show you some special pendants I made tomorrow. It has been a bit of trial and error because I never worked with resin before, but I think this batch is turning out nice. Have a wonderful evening!

Oh, the aprons are a great idea! Love the thought of wearable art! :) We just got some wisteria at the nursery - I hope it does as well as yours has!
