Sewing, cards, crochet, cross stitch, and other crafty randomness. An Irish girl on the other side of the world.
I bought these beads last year in Napier (a lovely art deco town on the East coast of NZ) on a trip and finally put them to good use and made myself a long necklace. I crimped onto waxed string from Tiger beads and quite like the results.
A few quick card makes. I haven't been as prolific as usual in my card making this year and these were for a house warming, to say hi to a friend who was soldering on, two new baby cards, and one for a relation on BMs who is ill and recovering. I made the 3 for BM to give him a choice. Not a lot of cards stockpiled at the moment. I just haven’t been making them over the last year or so. Possibly because my craft stuff is unevenly distributed throughout the house and not so easy to access.
A few quick and oh so satisfying makes with cotton yarn. I followed the Greedy for Colour Christmas Bauble tutorial at the start and then kind of winged it at the end. I also added a few beads for an extra dimension.
