Been a bit busy

I've been a bit busy lots of things going on and I cant settle to anything for long. Went to London for the day to look round the museums. Very enjoyable. Just got time to upload some photos of the latest creations.

First is a choker and a pair of drop earrings.

A set of 3 bangles made using memopry wire and coloured glass foil beads.

A break from beading. Here we have a crocheted baby blanket in peach and a skinny scarf its 6' long and 5" wide I used one of these ribbon and acrylic yarns which is quite awkward to crochet. You cant see the stitches but I do like the effect very fluffy.

I admit its not easy to create new work every day so I've taken a few days out lets the brain relax and gets the creative juices flowing again.

Another day, another update.

Yesterday, I picked up my crochet scarf with the hope that I wouldnt run out of yarn. The inevitable happened not enough yarn. So what to do?

Here are my choices.

1 Undo it and give up on this one.
2 Undo it and make it narrower.
3 Undo it and make something else.
4 Use it as the centre piece for something else.
5 Find a contrast and add to each end.

Well I'm dismissing 1 & 5. But I'll think about the others.

In the meantime I have another shawl on the go in a ribbon yarn (interesting texture), and I have some jewellery to make. Busy Busy Bee.

Visited my friend this morning and completed a hand created chain, elasticated bracelet with glass pearl charms that I have been working on for a few days and a pair of earings in matching pearls. Then started an elasticated shell nugget bracelet out of left over nuggets from other projects. Would have completed this if the knot and glue had held. Still that wont take long to put right.

Now I've got to go to the gym (makes a change from a swim). Got to keep fit for all this craft work.
