She likes it!

My sister Lisa's birthday was last week and I had just gotten a kit called "Sticks & Stones" from School of Beadwork designed by Carol Wilcox Wells that I thought she might like (after it was made that is-- she's not a beader).
As I worked my way through the project, I had second thoughts, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it and if I didn't like it, would she? Cloudy didn't have an opinion, he was just hoping to get away with perching on my shoulders for as long as I would allow it.
But after the whole bracelet was completed, my fears were unfounded. I loved it! And I knew she would too. It has this awesome feel to it and those sweet little tiny chains just give it some sass that you wouldn't expect.

It was perfect timing that she just happened to be wearing black on the day I gave it to her!
With the weight of that project (and the cat) off my shoulders, it was back to the Pentagram Box. I couldn't be happier with this little cutie.
Here's the under side of the lid. It's very heavy.

I embroidered my initials and the year on the liner before sewing it into the box.

Now, I'm off blog-hopping to check out what everyone else is up to these days! Cheers!!

Well, the pic of the bracelet is good, but the pic on it on your sis's wrist is fantastic! Its one of those projects that looks way different when worn. Great gift. How could she NOT like it.

Your box is pretty cool too!

The bracelet is so cool and I love the little chains...just a little sass is right. By the smile on your sisters face, you can tell she just loves it!

The lid is so beautiful on the box and it was a great idea to embroider you initials inside. ;-)
