Been a while since I have crafted so I thought I better start again.

Here is a lovely 8×8 made for a young girl.

Mothers Day Card

Mothers Day Card

This card is one I have made for my Mum for Mothers Day.
I have used Centura pearl Card for all my matting and layering.
And one of the wonderful topper from the Crisalis Classic from Christine Haworth.
I am entering this into the Crafters Companion blog challenge “CAS” , clean and simple.

August tutorial
  Flat even count peyote stitch (you can do even count if you wish)

ImageAs you can see I went for the even count with mine.

August theme –
Native American Earrings




I have to admit, the purple ones drove me batty, but by the time I had finished them.. I had to do another pair. Think I will be making a few different ones.

So go on.. show us what you have made so we  can send you some love back x

BFF ( Beading Friends forever)! New Blog Challenge!


We are so excited to be able to bring you a brand new challenge blog aimed specifically at jewellery making. Jewellery making is becoming so popular yet there are very few places for people to share their creations so we hope to help inspire you all but also to be inspired by your creations. No matter what your preferred style you will all be able to take part in our challenge each month. There will be two parts each month to our challenge – a theme and a pattern/tutorial. The members of the design team use many different techniques and I hope between us we can offer some inspiration to you. We also want to show you how varied one pattern can be depending on the choice of beads and colours.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Beads Direct as our sponsor each month …… please pop over and have a look at their fabulous products.
Please become a follower of our blog so that you do not miss any of the fun …… see you all soon for the first challenge on Saturday 2nd February!
