Pig, pink and beads

At last I've completed the farm animals collectable cut-outs (printed on egg carton.)

I re-found this beaded necklace in a drawer. I bought two of them a couple of years ago in Panama. They are made by the Ngöbe-Buglé people.


Por fin completé la colección de animales de granja de cartón que aparecía en unas cajas de huevos.

Encontré de nuevo este collar de cuentas (chaquira) en un cajón. Había comprado dos collares cuando fui a Panamá hace unos años. Los hacen la gente de Ngöbe-Buglé.

cute little piglet!! Did you make the doileys as well?

Karen Barbé said...

No, I didn't! :(
I bought the pink doilies at a crafts fair (original from Paraguay) and the small ones were crocheted by my sister.

Qué preciosidad de collar. Me recuerda a las golas de la España antigua, de cuadros de El Greco, Velázquez...

Y los doilies rosas son impresionantes también. Qué técnica de tejido tan particular!

Tienes la casa llena de cosas maravillosas, Karen.

Hello from New York to you, Karen.

It was so much fun to visit your recent posts and all your creativity! I love the farm animals using the egg cartons. I so wish I could attend your upcoming embroidery workshop. What fun everyone will have and how much they will learn.

Best wishes. xo
