Catch-Up – Part Deux

Ok then, I’ve been doing a TON of embroidery, and there will be more pictures of that posted soon, but here are the results of two beading classes I took recently:

First, ON

Braclets on the Table

Now, Really ON

Braclets on the Moi

I love these bracelets, both of them! They are comfortable to wear and really fit, too. I bought the Swaroski crystals to make a matching necklace for the pearl one. Wonder if I’ll ever do it???????

Just a not to Jo in nz, who recently posted a nice note on my kimono blocks. As soon as I figure out what to do with these blocks I'll post it, lol! I have enough to be a wall hanging - but don't have a wall to hang it on!

Yes, maybe a tutorial would be fun. These are paper pieced!

More soon, that’s a promise!

Maybe taxes did me in? LOL. I can't believe I haven't posted since April 14! Well, fortunately, just because I haven't posted doesn't mean I haven't done a lot of stitching, beading and other assorted things! Time to play catch up!

Let’s just do a little recap here. I had just started on the Featherstitched needlecase when last I posted. So, at that time I was just starting to get into the project, and was determined not to fix the minor (I thought) error in the middle row. Best laid plans and all…

Here is a picture of the completed needlecase cover. First, BEFORE I fixed it:

Needlecase 2

Here is the AFTER:

Needlecase 3

I fixed it because even when I took off my magnifier glasses and happened to glance at the project, I could see the mistake front and center. Now it is WORTHY! LOL.

More to come…and soonish!
