More beaded flowers

ImageYay!  I’ve finally started making more of these French Beaded Flowers.  I learned how to make them last fall, and expected to make many for Christmas gifts, and made none.  Now I know better, and am starting my gift-making early.

Summer of 100 Granny Squares

Posted in Uncategorized on August 21, 2012 by lizcreates

ImageInspired by my friend’s blog http://blairpeter.typepad.com/weblog/   I learned how to crochet granny squares.  And so I did!  The eco-yarn (partly recycled) was on sale and I had purchased several skeins.  I took them with me on our family vacation, and made many during various camping trips.  I am now assembling them into a couple of blankets, and hope to make some vests and other things too.  These are such a perfect project – each square takes a little over 10 minutes, and there is enough variation to keep me from getting bored.  The hard part is going to be assembling them.  And some day I’ll learn to use more than one color!

At our monthly seedbeaders meeting, we leared about stitching together ribbon bags and making necklaces with them. With leftover beads, I made some bracelets and earrings.
