Crafting chaos to be exact *laughs*
This was my coffee table earlier today. In fact, this is only part of the choas that overtook the table, but the mess was too much to show off ;)
As you can see, there was some knitting progress, but I'll give an update on that on Wednesday.Today, I thought I'd share a few other crafts I have recently started playing with (and by recently, I mean this weekend!)
I bought a jewellery making kit on ebay last week, during my mad ebay splurge, mainly because I wanted to make my own stitch markers... and here they are:
They're just very simple, but I really like them *smiles* In fact, I am now using 2 of them on my green top, replacing the very boring ones I did have ;)
But of course I couldn't just make a few stitch markers when I had a whole kit of stuff, especially due to the number of random beads and things I seem to have acquired over the years. So I made a bracelet
I also made some matching earrings, but they didn't photograph well, so no picture.
Then I made another bracelet, this time with evidence (albeit upside down evidence) of the matching earrings ;)
But that's not all folks... Oh no, more crafts were contributing to the chaos...
Of course, I was then on a roll... Inspired by some of the beautiful designs of Mooncalf, I cross stitched a very simple heart, paired it with some heart fabric I got free in a magazine, plus a stripy accent fabric, and made myself this pin cushion:
I have to say, I really love this. My sewing skills are improving, and the lines now almost match up ;)
So, knitting, sewing, beading and cross stitch... I'd say it was a fairly crafty weekend ;)
