I've been quietly lurking.   Undecided

unfortunately I don't think I'll be taking part for a while.  my craft slump is still in full swing.  the only thing I've got going on right now is the massive cross stitch project I mentioned forever ago.  I'm still working on the first color.  large chunks of solid color really suck.  this is worse than the Batman cross stitch I did.

but I shall keep an eye out for new projects posted by everyone!

Awww, I'm sorry, Krafty_Karasu, I know how horrible that is.  *hugs back*  And as for the giant cross-stitch project, good luck!  I tend to stall on really big projects because I don't feel like I'm making enough progress, and then I just end up putting it aside.  A huge chunk of solid-colored cross stitch sounds positively mind-numbing!  But you can do it!  Cheesy  *shakes pom-poms*

lol.  thanks.  it's not too too bad though.  and I get stalled on projects like this too.  I felt like I was getting nowhere, so I put it down.  then I'd pick it back up, work for a while, then set it down again.  I've been on a little roll now, so I have a lot more done than before the move (moving doesn't help my creativity...especially when I don't know where anything is for a while).

I have gotten grief all my life for not giving my parents grandchildren (I'm an only child), but I *never* wanted to have them. I know this thread is all in lightheartedness, but after what I've had to deal with in the last 20 years because of my decision - often from strangers - it just makes me sad (seriously, the things people have said, I... can't even repeat them here, they are so... insulting and cruel).

you won't get grief from me.  you'll only get a gigantic hug!!!  *gloms onto Smeddley*  I get the same thing.  the worst person has actually been one of my uncles.  my parents are actually ok with not having grand kids.  they have my cousin's two little girls.  speaking of, I did craft for one of them.  some time ago, I made one of those drawstring backpacks for a swap partner.  I ended up making one for my cousin's oldest.  that may have been the only thing I made though.  I don't know what to make for kids, plus when we were still living closer to them, the youngest was just a baby and didn't have any favorite characters (the backpack was made from a Dora print I found.  she was obsessed at the time).

sorry I've been quiet.  it's not been a good few years for me.  I know I was posting some crafts I had made, but eventually my depression became too great and I got into a crafting slump.  I'm still not in the mood to craft, but I am still slowly working on the cross stitch project I started FOREVER ago.  it's taking me so long because it's being done on 28 count cloth and there are only about 5 colors.  so lots of annoying solid work.  Shocked

That necklace is just amazing!
Is the wire you used hard or soft? Did you make circles with a string of beads and fasten them or are they woven? I can't stop looking at them, they are really lovely.

sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I've been sulking...

but anyway, thank you!  I just used beading wire to make the circles and used crimp beads and crimp bead covers to close them.  nothing fancy and something that was was sure wouldn't just fall apart after a short time.

so sorry to keep you waiting.  but I got them at Michael's.

and thanks!
