31  my first attempt at jewelry making in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by shooting star on: June 21, 2006 01:43:26 PM
Thanks to the guys at the Dundee craft group (check out the Scotland sub board in the countries board on this site for more information) who gave me my first taste of jewelry making.  This is what I came up with:

and a slight close up of the beads.  See the lovely terracota/clay one in the middle Cheesy

I enjoyed this craft, though I'm not entirely sure jewelry making is for me, although I think I am going to try my hand at making some stitch markers, which I currently need.

32  Crochet flower - I remember how to crochet! in Crochet: Completed Projects by shooting star on: June 21, 2006 01:34:50 PM
I know this project is nothing compared to the amazing things you guys can crochet, but its been a good few years since I last crocheted anything (I crocheted a christmas stocking for my little sister about 10 years ago), so I took it easy for my first project, to ease me back into it.  Though as soon as someone gave me a gentle reminder, everything, thankfully, seemed to start coming back to me!

Thanks to the Dundee craft group members who helped me back into crocheting again!

Heres my crochet flower, which I will probably make into a brouch for my bag or something

33  retro fabric scraps in What the heck can I do with THIS? by shooting star on: May 31, 2006 03:21:03 AM
I found the following in a charity shop, the equivalent to a goodwill shop in america, for only 1.99.  All are cotton pieces:

Most of it is litterally scraps and I'm not sure what to do with them.  I was thinking about attempting quilt blocks, though I'm not sure if I should use them for that.  There isn't much of most of them so I can't use it for anything reasonably big.

Though out of the bag I found 2 real gems.  These two came in reasonably big and wholly intact pieces, though the apple one has a little bit of blue dye on it near one edge.  I was thinking of using them as lining for a bag or even for making the outside of a clutch?  Or maybe making the apple one into an apron.  Any other ideas folks?  Heres the fabrics:

34  Golden lab cross stich in Needlework: Completed Projects by shooting star on: May 04, 2006 10:30:33 AM
Wow, my first completed project post on here!  I've been around admiring crafts on here for ages but I hadn't actually got around to posting any of my own, mainly due to not being 100% sure how to upload my images.  So heres my first one.  Its a golden lab cross stich that I made for my grans christmas.  I hope you like it.  Comments and criticisms welcome, other than the fact that it needs an iron/press   Wink  don't worry as I washed and ironed it before framing and wrapping it   Smiley
