Latest Projects

Yes I know another project... I always have three or four different projects on the go.. I make crochet necklaces - an idea I got from my friend Frances, who had one given to her as a present. I have been thinking lately about making bracletts and today I had a go.. I have made two. The first (the purple one I decided to try two strands, and the second was a black one, i made it slightly too big but then realised how i made the join it is adjustable, provided you like dangles....

Also I have made the first name will get my friends approval that it is what she wanted then I will make the others:


A good friend of mine has set me a challenge to make cut out name tags in the shape of the names of the girls she is going away with this weekend. So I have put on hold painting the boxes to creat four name tags ....

Christmas is coming....

Well Christmas will soon be upon us... I cannot believe another year is almost done.

Just thought I would shar with you a project I am about to begin.
My two beautiful boys love to collect gem stones, currently they store them in their treasure box which is litaerally like a Pirates treasure box. I went looking today for a display box.. was unable to find exactly what i wanted - my solution is to adapt the closest box I can.. So I found a cigar box, I will cut a whole in the lid, add some clear plastic sheet, make partitions and line it with black felt. When that is doen I will paint it and decorate them individually.
I will keep you posted on my prgress. In the mean time here is a picture of the beginning...
