Valentine's gifts

I've been quiet for a couple of days because I've been sewing and knitting. I'm almost done with both projects so I will be able to show it to you soon. Meanwhile I thought I would show you some Valentine's gifts.

I made myself a gift - a long necklace (hanging by my belly button) It's longer than any necklaces I've seen, but I like the new length. I can't have anything dangling around my solar plexus since that's where I''m in pain. I'm convinced that in 6 months you will see necklaces that are that long. I'm usually before fashion, so remember where you heard it first :D

I've had a couple of comments saying that they would like to see more tutorials on my blog. I'm not quite sure what you would like to see. I think my stuff are pretty easy. Let me know what you mean.

Here I have taken different beads in white, pink and silver and put it on a chain and some on the big ring. That's it! Tutorial done :)
I'm very happy with how this turned out since I don't have any long necklaces. This is my first and I thought it was very appropriate as a gift to myself.
Angel charm

Here's what I got from my sweetheart - someone to hug that doesn't snore  (his words, not mine :) This bear is sooo soft and cuddly and quite big - the biggest I've ever had. (about 35cm)

 My sweetie got a scarf that I knitted for him. He has been wearing one I knitted for him years ago that looked quite shabby. He refused to wear any storebought though so if I wanted him to change it I had to knit him a new one...It's supersoft and perfect length to wrap around his neck. I like the shades.

Wow, that is an awesome necklace. I love it. I've sort of tried my hand at jewelry making, but haven't perfected it yet, lo. And that scarf is awesome. Love it.
