Here's what I have been up to lately, when I have had the time. Above is a fluorite and amethyst bracelet that I made for a colleague's birthday. She loves purple, so hopefully she'll love this too.
Here is the Christmas Bunting, which Joy's fabric, included in the Christmas Cracker swap, had inspired me to make. It has turned out a bit long to appear all in one photo, but I like it so much, I am in the process of making some more so that we can have a double bunting effect.
I am really pleased with how this has turned out. I made it up while getting into a suitably Christmassy spirit, watching 'White Christmas' with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. You can see how well Joy's fabric fits in with the green and red theme. Thanks, Joy! It will hang across a mirror eventually and I think it will look great.
On another note, I have also had inspiration about incorporating the little floral buttons (also received in the Christmas Cracker swap) into some jewellery. It is on my 'to do' list, so watch this space...
