Project updates!

Well, here are the current updates on our projects!
We finished the Alchemy brown-pearl necklace, and you can see how it turned out:

We were very happy with it, and I hope our client is too!

Second, we are making good project on our Sunflower Granny Squares afghan. We have finished all the squares and have organized them all into the full blanket. (I know, I should have remember to take a picture!) Now we are working on stitching all the squares together. More progress photos to come, as I think the blanket will be done very soon!

New Projects!

We have two new projects underway!

The first is a blanket that we saw pictures of and saw Etsy Alchemy requests for, that was similar to this one:

Because it was so hard to find a pattern for what we are calling the "Sunflower" square, after much researching we had to make up our own pattern for it. It will probably end up for sale in our Etsy shop, once the blanket is done.
We used 21 colors in 168 squares, with each color represented in each layer 8 times, and no color patterns repeated. Here are some progress pictures:

You can also check out the project status on our Ravelry site.

Alchemy Project!

Our second project is from an Etsy Alchemy request. Our client had a string of freshwater pearls from the Philippines that she wanted made into a necklace similar to the St. Lucia. Here are the beads we got for her:

And here is the progress picture of the wire-and-bead crochet necklace we made for her! It is almost finished, as you can see.

Final project pictures to be posted soon!
