A quick gift for a great cook!

I made another necklace. This one is for Lisa who made a fantastic plum pie for us all to enjoy this past weekend. Thanks, Lisa!

She picked out this seed stripe fabric from my stash before heading home that evening, and I think it makes a lovely finished piece. I used a dark gray grosgrain ribbon for the tie.

It didn't take me long at all to finish, so I decided to also make a bag to go with it, a la Brighton. I just love the pretty bags I have from them whenever my mom and I buy jewelry there (which happens basically every visit). I use one to carry my camera in! I've had this bird in flight print, which is rayon maybe?, left over from a tunic top I made myself and I thought it would be a fun fabric to use. I lined it with home dec weight fabric to give it some structure and hand stitched the casing for the ribbon drawstring using pearl cotton. 

This was a lot of fun to do, and I hear she was pleased. That's what it's all about.
