Mixed Media Beads

The sky's the limit

get out all those beads

and get creative!

mixed media christmas ornaments

Hi got into a beading mood and decided to pull out rusty stars and bells and mix with earthy beads, brown velvet cord and ribbon!
Really happy with the finished result, hang them on the wall or on your tree.
Get your beads out and decorate your tree differently this year, go earthy or bling.
Glass beads would be stunning with christmas lights.

Wow i did it. Not so good at sewing late into the night anymore .But when you complete an idea it is sooo worth it.


Hi my daughter housemoved out recently into
her own place and we have been invited to
tea tomorrow. I thought a little house warmer
would be nice so have made her a plastic bag
holder.Will try to design her a pegbag to match.
As her kitchen is black and white ,i found this
black and white spot and it just spoke to me.

An Apple on Christmas day will keep the Doctor away

WoW it feels good to be back on line.
Lots has happened since my last post,
and part of which we sold our house and are staying in our friends cottage
until we find a new home.
With Christmas round the corner i decided to go all fruity, these apples could be used just as decor or as pincushions.Had a whole lot of fun
mixing and matching colours. Used jute (string) for the stem and a button under. The star fabric was created by
embroidery the stars on randomly with my embroidery machine then
cutting out the apple pattern on it.
Hmm maybe i'll do pears next!
