Flower Seller Doodles

love the colours in this - stripey base card - Kanban stock and decoupaged imaged mounted on rather funky paper - also from that Christmas pack

Another Lee Jacobs Doodle

I finks this is me on Thyroxin lol - at 2am  I pulled the cooker out and washed the floor behind it, the units the cooker sides.   I just CANNOT stop  aaaaaargh 

This design just tickles me.  Printed on photo paper and mounted on a piece of scrapbooking paper from a Christmas Pack and then onto a base card from some bought at Kanban.

Tres Continental!!!!!!

These bracelets are based on the ones I have seen in the newsletters from various European stores - ok ok - BELGIAN lol.  I think the ribbons make a simple bracelet look really girlie

PInk and Pearls

I saw this design in the book Paul bought me.  It looks lovely with the dangly bit - in the book they were between every set of the pearls, but I decided for this one just the centre was enough

An Evening making Jewellery

Spent a very enjoyable evening making the following.........

Crystal Angels

Adore these little angels - so nice to make - erm, but got a tad carried away today - made 72 of the crystal ones lol.  The pearl ones are what I had left of that batch

                                           The little jam pot tray has been so handy today

                                                       think this is one of every colour

Decinario Bracelet

Thanks to Miss Katrina showing me this style of bracelet I have faffed about for an hour or so and come up with this - there are 10 double knots - the decade of the rosary and 9 beads.
There are other slightly different styles as well, but I am rather pleased with this first attempt.  The leather thonging we have is 3mm so it is a mans bracelet, looking about on ebay for some thinner thong (try saying that quickly lol)

Thanks to Angela..............

.....................coming to the rescue with the middle page of the Winnie the Pooh and Friends cross stitch Alphabet I can now continue the afghan throw I started a few years ago. 

When it is finished I will back it and have some wadding - make it into a proper quilt, and probably donate it to one of two worthy charities to auction
