A few years back (about 6 years) I was working on bolero vest and it got set a side I worked on it some a recently while on my trip in Mexico and this is the progress I made on it. It is using the Wheat stitch cord I posted a few days ago about but this cord was made about 7 years ago. I hope to get this done at some point in my life sometimes I just have no deadlines on things I make just for fun so they happen when they happen. I hope it will fit me then if it doesn't well I have 3 daughters who are always happy to claim anything I have made as their own to wear. So it will not go to waist when ever it is finished. this is Antique thread I am using here both for the cord and the filling stitches. Which is a lot heavier than I usually use so this vest has a more textured feel to it which I like
If you notice the macrame bracelets in the photo some I made for my brother in law over 17 years ago that he just gave back to me he kept them all these years so cool, some my children made for me and some my children bought for me. But all represent special people in my life and has a little story to go with them.
I have several projects I am working on for other people at the moment 4 different afghan repairs and one cross stitch sampler for a baby. i will show some of those in the near future at the moment the 3 of the afghans I am cleaning so it will be a while before I can work on them as they are pretty bad and I have to have a clean them before I can match threads and start the repair process.
