Carole Lake's Glitzy Stitching Accessories

This is my name tag, as if anyone needed a reminder (smiling).
I love it.

I was thinking the other day, an activity that sometimes can be dangerous to my own health, that it might be quite interesting to be able to see all the Glitzy Stitching Accessories that Carole Lake designed some years back together in one single place and not have to hunt them down here and there on my blog.

Under each stitching accessory I will give you the link where the original posting has been made so that if you want to know a bit more about each one or see additional photos, all you have to do is click on the link and presto you will be there.

This is an online class I took with Carole many years ago, at a time when there were not that many classes on the internet, unlike today when we have lots and lots of options available to us. For clarification purposes, I did not take that class because there was not anything else available to me at the time as I would have taken it no matter what. There was also a very strong incentive at the time for learning how to do the finishing. I must say that I have learned quite a bit with that series and even today I often refer to the instruction when I find myself in a special spot of bother and just can't remember exactly how I did this or that.

The only change I made with this project is a change of threads and canvas colors. Carole used reds and blues mainly for her Glitzy Stitching Accessories and I am rather partial to colors like coppers, gold and blue/greens, so when I went shopping I checked to see what was available in those colors.

This one is my frame weight.

I would like you to guess what I have put inside to give it some weight.

Anyone, any ideas?

If I say that no matter what happens to me I will  never be pennyless, would that ring a bell?

Right, I have put pennies inside, brand new ones too (big grin)
