Thank you, I was rather proud of this one =)

I've been making hair clips lately, after I got inspired by watching The Big Bang Theory and the episode with Penny's "Penny Blossoms". I was doing regular flowers with the singed fabric technique and decided to try a lotus. Here it is!

Thanks =)

I may just use the last one. I had seen the Russian stitch one when trying to find some patterns myself, which I may use for some other stuff (it's really neat looking!)

It's hard finding a leaf pattern that looks like a lilac leaf, so drawing out my own is probably the best plan.

I'm still working on my mother's gift and looking for a pattern for a leaf I can use to accent little lilac flowers I plan to group together. I'm using Miyuki Delicas and looking for something probably with a peyote stitch or similar. Thanks =)

GAH! I just found out we won't even be home for Halloween, my husband has to go to a base in Arizona to set up a system there, so we'll be there that week. So ANOTHER change of plans! I'm going to have to come up with something not-too-complicated that I can pack in my duffle and wear to a bar.

I'm hoping so. I'll have to find something to make a crinoline for underneath though. Hopefully I can hit a thrift shop before Halloween and find something.

So due to lack of materials for my original costume idea (Autumn Fairy) I am changing my costume. I have this lovely grey cotton sateen material that used to be a duvet cover and is still in good condition except a small burn hole from a cigarette. It's a large singular chunk (think queen size cover in one piece, folded in half) and I want to make a gown from it with a pattern I have, maybe with a masquerade mask or wings. Only, I have no idea what the theme would be. Ideas? Storm fairy maybe? The fabric does have lighter colored flowers on it. Let me see if I can find a picture...

Ok, so I've been searching (and using you guys as a sounding off board, hope you don't mind!) and found a tutorial for a "star bracelet"http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/StarBracelet.html and was debating using those little stars on a lacy background. Do they look enough like lilac buds, and do you think it would work with the same size beads instead of 2 different sizes?

I should probably say that I was very inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336617.0 and was hoping to do something similar, but less complicated and probably more symmetrical.

I am trying to make something for my mother as a late birthday/Christmas present. Very late -_- (I live in another country, so it's hard to send stuff).

Anyway, I am looking for ideas for a necklace preferably using peyote stitch or similar. I have 5 different colors of miyuki delicas, 2 different greens, a blue, and two different colors of purple. I'm hoping to use them to make an intricate necklace of lilacs or something like that, since they're her favorite flowers, and amethyst is her favorite stone. I might also be making some matching earrings if I have enough left over.

If anyone could point me in the direction of some tutorials that might be helpful in my planning of this necklace I'd be very grateful, as I don't know where to start. My beading skills are decent, though I've never done anything spectacularly complicated.
