I'm back

Hi,
I've been gone from here for two months!
though I was back from the Europe trip in the end of June,
I've just not had the time to post anything.
Life has been a whirlwind since the time I've been back!


1st here are a few snapshots of our
lovely lovely trip......









Now that I'm back, I haven't been upto much.....
But I did make some things......





Tatted bracelet in Black with blue beads



It's a bracelet made with a single shuttle
and a pretty easy pattern I came up with.
I've written down the pattern
and
would try to make it available here some time soon.






A simple tatted set
with transparent beads
Small flowers
and
a
Josephine chain string.
I'd made several of these
 to send to my Ravelry swap group.
Pretty fast and simple to work.


 


I bought these scissors from a store in
Colmar (France)
Lovely, isn't it?
Alongside,
a tatted and a crochet flower in silk.
The thread tats up beautifully,
though a little slippery.
not fun to crochet with it at all!




A small tapestry crochet pouch for my
MP3 player
with a beaded toggle.


Talking of beads,
That's what I've been doing a lot these days,
in whatever time I get, that is!




Beaded flowers set
with small flower earrings.



Trying to bead a bead....





Russian leaves earrings...





Tried to make a bangle......
Bead crochet rope
with bead baubles at the ends,
but it's a little short to go around the wrist,
So,



Added a peyote loop and
 made a charm for my purse handle!



Peyote strip....



and a toggle....
Bracelet!



Cold Porcelaine beads bracelet.





And finally....

Bead Crochet rope lariat
with
a beaded Calla lily at one end
and bead corals at the other...

I love this one!

I've made a bracelet to go with it
can't find the pic right now.....




Learning to do the
Cellini spiral.....
That's what I'm carrying around
in my purse these days......
.
.
.
That's it for now.....
See you soon later.

Welcome back. Looks as if you had a wonderful trip - great pics. Wish I had been there - especially France!

Your beading looks amazing - I always wondered how to do that spiral - but I am NOT going there! enough to keep up with the shuttle!

Hi Fox, thanks for liking my cleaner blog .
I too had got so bored with all that PINK ( though the basic theme is still pink ) and the tightness.
