81  Starry bracelet take 2 in Beads: Completed Projects by Ratfinkz on: June 20, 2014 02:50:30 PM
so - at the beginning of the week I created this bracelet:

I was not happy with it - so decided to play a bit more (and help improve my peyote skills) and this evening have completed this one - which I am so pleased with!

84  Handbag for my mum in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ratfinkz on: June 17, 2014 12:17:43 PM
I am still very much a learner sewer -but my mum kind of requested a handmade handbag for her birthday - so I came up with this! There are a few mistakes - but it was the most complicated bag I have tried yet - and overall I am pleased with it.

MY mum took the photos, in reality the handle completes a circle with the bag body - but it looks floppy in the pictures - blame the photographer Wink

the main bit I am unhappy with is the interfacing showing on the lining/handle (the big white bit!) I really struggled with the lining/handle!

Sorry I have been MIA again - I've been busy/poorly/bleugh!
Last weekend we went to visit my mum! Here's Milo meeting mums new dog called Lulu - she got her from a rescue centre 4 weeks ago - and she is an amazing little dog - I totally fell in love!

then today I let him meet my doggies properly

with Tizer, our rescued Lab cross something (I love this picture!)

and with Sprite - our Springer Spaniel.

one of my main hobbies is crafting and specifically taking part in Craftster swaps - so here Milo is checking out the swag I got today from the Sweat shoppe swap:

I will try to be better at keeping in touch now! Sorry!

86  Flowery/starry bracelet and earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by Ratfinkz on: June 17, 2014 11:49:33 AM
I made this bracelet over the last few nights using peyote in the round - it is the first time I have made anything from peyote that isn't just the straight lined bracelets you can make - I am fairly pleased with it - although lots of improvements can be made!

I also made these earrings to be worn with it. I have just noticed that the spring has fallen off one of the hooks - so will replace that before I wear them!

(also just noticed one of the earrings is crunched up abit - they are both the same, honest guv!)

I also received on Saturday - but have been lax at posting pics - my apologies! I received a lovely package from Deadbathducky, thanks hon I enjoyed swapping with you! Here are pictures (earlier than I said I know!)

A book of Australian Crafts - I LOVE craft books

A very pretty purple and black ribbon bracelet - this is too pretty to be used as a bookmark - so I have decided it can be a bracelet instead Smiley

A very pretty dragon to go in my collection:

A purple and black ribbon wreath which is going to go on our 'wedding shelf' full of knick knacks from our wedding last year

A gorgeous purple cow - I LOVE it's horns which deadbathducky made from some pendants

(I thought I may have to give this to my mum (she collects cows - but no chance I am keeping it!)
A beautiful purple necklace

A cat gift tag / card decoration which I love - but which my husband finds freaky cos apparently it looks like a moomin....he married me for crying out loud, we know he has no taste! Tongue

A fairy bottle which is very pretty, and I also got an empty bottle of the same size which I will turn into something!

Pretty paper

I also got a stencil for the dragon she made me so I Can make my own -s ome purple card blanks, and some wilbby wobblys which WERE delicious - but didn't make it until I was doing photos - sorry!
Thanks again Deadbathducky - I hope you get your parcel soon!

I have a massive apology to make to ybunnygurl, I had forgotten I had not yet got photos up! I am so sorry - I really hope people are still watching this gallery cos her work deserves to be shared!


Gryffindor trunk with lego / badges and a sticker inside:

Tigger frame with lovely original style Pooh picture

Yellow and Green were fold up bags to go in my handbag - but she had decorated the fronts of them! They fold up this small:

Yellow was my all time favourite flowers: Daffodils!

and green was a Dragon - I LOVE dragons!

blue was a hammock for my ratties:

Indigo was a T-shirt, which I promptly put on it has since been washed and I am currently wearing it again! Smiley

(action shot from when we went to visit friends for an evening)

and Violet - well, violet was a purple patchwork skirt! I have wanted one of those for SO long - and I love this one, I have been living in it and it is currently in the wash - but as soon as it is out I shall take an action shot and post it!

Thank you very much I enjoyed swapping with you!  I am sorry you were disappointed with what I sent you though. Maybe one day we can be partners again and I can make it up to you Smiley

Oops I forgot my beautiful rainbow bag - which I was using this evening, sorry!
