  1. Hi Lisa,
    I am happy to see that after all these years, the embroidered necklace still has its flair. It is my signature necklace and I still get lots of compliments whenever I wear it! It gives me great pleasure to see it here. Thank you so much!

  2. Hey Lisa, I still have a mountain of used jeans that I collected for craft projects like my pillows. I have compiled a whole board on interest about denim. Just need to find time! Happy crafting, Marji Roy
