I’m over here ……

I’m over here….. back to Blogger!



I left Blogger two years ago and jumped over to WordPress, since then I have been blogging less and less.  Why?

WordPress, though a wonderful blog format, is just not the write right  fit for me.

I have been quietly posting over at http://blog.sallyrussick.com/

Come over for a visit and check things out, see what you think and if you would like

I would appreciate if you subscribe, follow, friend connect, bloglovin’  or bookmark me.

Maybe you would like to take a moment to leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!

CCSA Badge

I live in the Northeastern Area of Pennsylvania where I’m able to enjoy all four seasons.  My favorite season is the Autumn but when I opened the package that Alicia sent me I knew my color palette would be Spring.  The palette is the transition of Winter slow release of it’s grip as the vivid green shoots of new growth emerge.

Thank you Alicia for the beautiful Jasper cabby and the beads (not pictured but I have plans for), I love what creativity they sparked!!

Corners for the CRAW stitching were made from the guidance of Heather Collins Gatsby tutorial.

Ann S - This is a very beautiful necklace. I love the colors you chose, and the design and the particular stitch. I would never be able to identify a stitch, but I know I really love this one.

Therese - Hi Sally,
Wow your necklace is gorgeous I think it is in the same league as Helena Tang-Lim. I love the colors you chose to use they are a real contrast to the red color of the Jasper cab. Helen Collins Gatsby’s You Tube tutorials are wonderful, it wasn’t until I watched her that the light bulb went of in my head in understanding CRAW. Awesome job!

Monique U. (A Half-Baked Notion) - These are truly unexpected colours but I love them, Sally :) This is an amazing piece!

Emma Todd - what pretty shapes you create! I love the corners, the squareness of this rope. I love all the little hits of colour along the way.

Christine - Sally ~ this is a really Beautiful necklace! The cab is a gorgeous color and the CRAW just gives the piece so much structure and depth. Really beautiful!

Alicia@AllPrettyThings - Oh, gorgeous – I love the colour mix, so refreshing, it truly feels like spring :) And your bead weaving skills are, as usual, perfect!
Thank you for giving such an elegant interpretation to my seasons theme :)
