Hello and welcome.
This week has been very slow on the creating front, there are many other things going on in the household which are taking me away from my Sewing Room – and that’s fine. Sometimes a break from crafting means that you come back to it with fresh ideas and that’s always nice 🙂
I did make time to go to my monthly Quilting group and we had a tutorial on making beaded snowflakes/stars, I know it’s not quilting but it was still fun. Here’s what we made…
They have little loops on one of the arms so hanging ribbons can be attached, just right for the Christmas tree!
We were all given a little box of beads and each one made was different.
Pretty aren’t they? The beads are held on with little plastic ‘earring backs’ – I guess they have a proper name but that’s what they look like 🙂
If you’d like to try to make one you can buy the metal wire snowflake forms from Amazon and you just thread on some pretty beads and either use earring backs on the ends of the arms or make a loop in the metal using round nosed pliers.
Last night at my Ladies Wot Sew group I made a few crochet flowers…
These are only tiny, made with embroidery floss using a 1.75 hook – cute!
So a slow week on the crafting front and I predict another slow week next week too as I concentrate on other things.
Have a great week end.
Until next time,
