It has been too long between posts and I am sorry.

I have been so busy preparing for upcoming events.

The Spring Quilt Retreat is fast approaching as well as the studio tour the 1st of May.

I have been trying to get some things done for the sale.....BUT!............................

I have taken time to just enjoy some quiet time to myself and this is it.

I have really enjoyed learning traditional rug hooking... Shading is the hardest and most challenging but I thought I may as well try to master that right from the start. This is the rug I am working on. I cannot tell you how many times I have ripped out and started again , but I need to get the right feel of it..I am happy with the results so far It is a fairly large rug, 3'x4'.. The centre will be off white as you can see the outline around the flowers.I treated myself to a beautiful hooking frame with gripper strips all around the edge to hold the linen taut. I love the stand as it takes the weight off my lap as I hook.. Anyway.. so much for the pension cheque this month
I had to put it aside for awhile as I got an infection in my thumb!!! Spent 8 hours in emerge for that.. Read a whole book...Oh Dear! Don't know how I got the infection but it is OK now.

So that is it for now.

I'm off to the city to run a few errands so will catch you later.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please say hi if you can. It means so much

Busy Busy with New Things

I did not do any posting while One World One Heart was running......HOWEVER>>>>> that does not mean I was not busy creating!

Everyone knows how much I love beading and I was in a beading frenzy,

I made several pairs of earrings using swarski crystals, and pearls. I am using a differnt clasp which I find very comfortable and very secure on the ear.
I used pearls along with crystal.The different colors available are black, white, blue, grey and pink.Other colors will come along soon. I completed this 60" beaded scarf using gold bugles and bronze seeds. The fringe is an assortment of bronze and amber beads and charms.
I was working on some beaded amulet bags in different colors. Wouldn't the white/cream pearl ones would be pretty for a bridal gift to her attendants.
I have to finish the flaps yet using more beads and charms .. They have a generous length rope which seems to accomodate most bodies.

And here is another beaded scarf done in a glorious shade of plum iris bugles and matching seeds. The drop crystals are a beautiful deep amythest.
It is 60: long as well and can be doubled as you would a long scarf and worn as a choker... Stunning...

Any of my items are for sale along with free shipping. Email me with any questions.
Thank you.
