Stealing the Moon

Another Heaven and Earth Design, one I fell in love with and fast forwarded to the to of my 'To Do' list.

I started this on the 19th March 2010 and loved stitching it. Quite a lot of confetti stitching in the middle of the design but the edges were fairly strightforward.

And here is the completed piece (280410) As soon as I finished the last stitches I rushed to get it washed ironed and photographed :D
The camera doesn't quite do the colours justice, there is sparkly thread in the light sections which doesn't really show up.

This is really just to show the scale of the design, my 2 year old daughter wanted in on this pic since my son got his picture taken with the last piece of work lol

Beaded Keyrings

I love making these!!

Took well over a week just to get all the parts, it was very much trial and error. Three attempts just to get the right letter beads, thankfully I have now found a wholesale supplier and have 1500 of them on their way!!

Also took a couple of attempts at finding the right ribbon - I had never heard of 'grosgrain' before!

I'm thinking they would sell for about £2 each at craft fairs, although my family will be getting them for various birthdays and occassions this year hehe.

The baby pink/blue ones are for relatives who are due their first baby next month, I will put them in with the baby gift :)

Birthday Card - Viv

What better than the 'Forever Friends' bear for someone who has been a fantastic friend over the years. (Viv, if you read this...(((hugs)))! )

I recently bought a load of beads, so thought that they would be ideal to personalise the card...they made a lovely necklace :D
