These are really the last ones. I need to mail them off today. I'll spend the rest of the day packaging and labeling, and probably get to the post office just before closing time.
Last year, I made two of Jane Eborall's doves for the sale. They never actually made it into the sale, because my mom has the advantage of being in charge of the crafts section, so she sometimes picks stuff out and buys it before anyone else gets to see it. Nothing wrong with that, but I really liked those doves and was hoping other people would get a chance to see them. So I made another three for this year.
I used Flora size 20 for all of them. The olive branches, top to bottom, are Yarnplayer's "Forest" HDT, Lizbeth 138 "Leafy Greens", and Lizbeth 167 "Jungle Greens". The beads are Miyuki Delicas; the ones on top have a "silky luster" finish in white, the middle ones are also silky luster in a pale gray, and the bottom ones are a darker gray with an iridescent finish. I try not to make two items the same.
Now off to write labels!
