Pottering...

I have been pottering in terms of making things.  I don't have any big makes in the pipeline I seem to be flitting between crochet and cross stitch.  I was a bit relieved to be asked to make a bracelet for a friend recently, it was a nice change to get the beading stuff out again.

I made a couple of tigertail glass beaded bracelets and I was quite pleased with them both.  

Now they are with the recipients I am able to show them here.
Another little make was this pink cross stitch on pink evenweave.
I bought this frame from Laura Ashley in the new year sale last year and it has sat there for over a year just waiting!  

Shocking really, it only took a couple of hours to make this up, why do I put stuff off for so long, do you do that too?


I will have to get my make on for June as I am Miss June for the Monthly Make over at Annie the Felt Fairy's place. I feel like I should wear a sash and a tiara (I just might)!




Pop over and play, I will give regular updates on all the wonderful makes as the month progresses. You can find the flickr group here.

Back Soon x

Thos bracelets are gorgeous. I love the silver swallows. Beautiful. The cross stitch pic is gorgeous too. Yes, I put stuff off too. Don't know why. I had been putting something off for ages so just bit the bullet last night and did it. It only took 2 hours and is lovely. There's no hope. xxx

I think you should wear a tiara as it's a Royal "June" :) Your makes are lovely as always, I skip from one craft to another and can never decide what I want to do. I really have to push myself to stick with one thing and try to do it well :)
