Back to sunny!! Scotland

Back home and sorting out stuff from the holiday today - it's a bit of a shock with the rain today but will get  on with catching up with work. Dawn loves the crochet and knitted jewellery so I'm going to get started with other pieces ready for the autumn workshops. Will keep  you posted later this week.

Precious Sparkle Beads - workshops

I've been busy on holiday here in Illinois - I brought beads over from Precious Sparkle Beads and have been busy creating some projects for workshops in the Autumn. Dawn fancied some knitting and crochet and I think the semi-precious beads have worked really well. I'm back home in about a weeks time and then will get dates sorted out. Here are the projects - get in touch if you'd like to find out how to make them.

Fimo jewellery designer - Karyn Kozak

Went back to the Geneva Art fair yesterday and spotted this amazing Fimo jewellery designer: Her colours and the patterns she created were just amazing - I took some images of earrings on my phone but not too clear so this pic of a bracelet and necklace are from her website.

Nuno felt dress

spent the day at an amazing art fair in Geneva Illinois and spotted this fabulous dress. I think it is made by the nuno felting technique but I'd have to ask my friend Ellie what she thinks.

Beaded bag

Out and about today in a small town nearby - Geneva, Illinois. I spotted this gorgeous beaded bag in a small antique shop. just loved the simplicity of the pattern. I think I'll have to take my proper camera with me as the phone image isn't quite clear enough.

Hat party

they do things differently in the US so yesterday I'm making a hat for a hat party that my sister-in-law is hosting. I decided to make a paper hat from newspaper but Jackie gave me a charity hat and said I could do what I wanted! Paper flowers made from strips of newspaper, fringed and rolled then twisted strips wrapped in wire and shaped around a pencil. Finished off with some pipecleaners. This is actually me before the party starts - heaven forbid I have a drink of two!
