Finally! I decided to continue with the Rain Theme for the Giveaway, and here is a California Raindrop, a prayer for more rain...white thread embroidered on a small square...1 3/4 inches of light blue silk (brocade?) On the back is a bit of home-dyed silk noir. The "chain" is twined embroidery thread, each side 12", with silver clasps. There's a nickle sewn in between the layers so it will hang nicely. If you would like this little necklace, please leave a comment below! Gilly will choose the winner...I'll put the names in the little envelopes seen in the last post, along with a bit of kibble, and we'll see which one she picks first!!
Here's Gilly, after her haircut! Immediately after. Looking like a puppy again instead of a shaggy old lady. Still with her complimentary neckerchief on. She hoped to dislodge it and got one leg stuck in it so it was all crooked and silly looking. Luckily it was stretchy fabric and she survived the tangle.
OK, that's it! Hope to hear from you...we'll have the drawing on May 15.
P.S. I just (Monday eve.) redid the photos of the necklace so the color and shape is more accurate. It occurred to me that the scanner might take better pictures than my little camera.
