Crafty ADD #29

Last week was a mixed bag for me. I did really good the first half of the week, and then I had a really massive migraine that laid me out flat for three days. Despite that...I actually have a lot to show off! So let's dive in :)

Crochet

Don't know WHY that picture turned out so...yellow. Oh well. I finished the core part of the second strip. Next I need to tie in all the ends and do the border!

Cross Stitch

It's almost done! I just need to fill in the blue on the bottom symbol. Another hours worth maybe?

Jewelry


I'm making paper beads! This is the very first set I made, and as you can see, I did NOT do well on some of them. This is definitely a skill with a learning curve to it! I have since made three more sets in different colors and done a little bit better each time. I didn't get a picture of those for you though. Ooops! I'll do a post just about my new paper beads where I explain the process a little bit more and you'll see the rest of them then :)


I whipped these up early last week. They are now in my consignment shop. :)


Didn't make much progress on this necklace because I spent most of my time working on my other beady project. Which is fine - because this one will be sitting there waiting for when I need something that doesn't take a lot of thought!

This is my current favorite beady project - and it's for ME! I'm using a pattern from this month's Bead and Button magazine and I can hardly wait to see it all done! I love butterfly's :)

That butterfly is going to be so pretty!
And of course I love the paper beads :) I've thought of making some myself some day!

Ooooh. Paper beads? I like these. So many possibilities. I can't wait to see how you make those. You got a lot done this week.

Wow - you've been very productive & made so many beautiful creations. Even more amazing if you had such a horrible time with your migraine.

I love the beaded lace necklace you are working on. I can't wait to see it finished. Do you take requests for colors? :O)

Kathleen - I hope you see this reply because blogger has no way to contact you! I do take custom requests. I've done these in solid colors, specific patterns, or from random bead mixes like what I'm doing now :)
