My Prizes

A while ago, the forum ran a competition, well actually a series of competitions called the Crafts Forum Summer Show. I entered lots of the categories, and was lucky enough to win two of them. The first was
Reycled crafts and was sponsored by Bodrighy.  I  entered my skirt
I received my prize last week and it is beautiful.  It's a beautiful wooden goblet made of Chaperno wood.  I have always loved Pete's work, so it's now got pride of place in my lounge.

The second category I won was Pink to make the boys wink sponsored by Snug Craft.
I entered my memory quilt
I received a wonderful prize of a pair of handcast pewter earrings with pink enamelling and a lovely little pewter heart.

A Quilled Card

I have recently bought some quilling papers so that I can take part in the UK Crafts Forum's Quill A long However, as that isn't starting until next weekend, I have been looking at the strips and wondering if I can still remember how it all works.
I got my chance to find out when another post on the forum made me look at a card competition and think "what a great excuse"

so out came the papers and an hour later, this card emerged.

Now I should point out that card making is not usually my remit, but I've had a lot of fun doing it.

hope you like it.

A Giveaway

It's a long time since I did a giveaway and so I decided I better get round to doing one.
I recently made a necklace like this one for a friend and it was admired by a lot of people, so I thought it would be the ideal gift for a giveaway.

It is a selection of pink / plum/ purple toned beads strung on three strands..  The earrings are currently on hooks, but I can change to a stud top or clip on for you. Let me know which you prefer.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning it is to:
Follow and comment on this blog (1 entry) and /or
follow and RT the tweet on Twitter (1 entry)
I will select a winner at random on Monday 17th September at 12 noon.

Ring a Ring of Roses

I've been having a ring phase recently.

I've been creating a series of cluster rings.

I find it incredibly satisfying selecting beads in a colour scheme or mix and adding them to the ring bases.

They are fiddly things to make, but add a real dash of colour and texture to you outfit.

The ring bases are platinum plated and are fully adjustable.

They came in any different colour ranges, or can be made in your own colour specification.
You can see the other rings I have made on HERE
