Charms and the Dressmaker

Thought I would add to this post the charms I have been working on. I made 2 sets of the alphabet and I am not sure of the count. But I am sure it is about 70. These are also going to Bazaar. I have a few still to do. I enjoy making them, it is a good thing because of the amount I have done. You may want to click to enlarge for a better look. The ones in the middle that are flowers shows some of what I did on the alphabet charms. I did some with a peach background and others with a aged look.

I really enjoy the two with the toddler.
The letters are what the lettering was on a 1914 typewriter. I thought they gave a old fashioned look to the charms.

I have been so busy the last couple of weeks, so I have so many of you to catch up on. So much to do and so little time. Add to it the fact that I have been fighting some kind of Bug. Fevers at night and tired in the day. Right now I have beads everywhere. I hope this has found you all having a good ending to summer. Jenny sent over tomatoes and onions, Bells from her garden....Yummmmm! I don't think these pictures really share all that I wanted, but I think you will get the idea. I have two more to finish. Thank you for the support of Jenny. These are strange times.
