I know it’s been a while since my last post…. no excuses, I just have been a bit lazy lately but finally last weekend I found new inspiration and I came up with this bracelet.
It is made with a silver chain, some silver beads and some coloured waxed cotton threads.
I also added a little kitty charm that could easily become my new trademark… another one!
I’m a bit hesitant to find my ultimate trademark….
Anyway, I needed some colours in this gloomy Autumn Monday, and here it is:

This is my first order ever! I’ve been asked by a friend to make her a new tablet case because she wasn’t satisfied with the one she had. So I let her chose between my fabrics and then I set to work.
It took me a while because I wanted it to be perfect. So, I stitched and unstitched it quite few times becase I wasn’t happy with the result. After several attempts here is the final product!
It is definitely better than my first e-reader case here, which dates back to exactly two years ago. So I also might be happy because my technique has improved since then! :-D

I’ve been definitely mesmerized by Zooty Owl’s doily patterns: they are lovely and easy, and the tutorials couldn’t be clearer. So, here is another doily I finished crocheting yesterday…..

Here is my latest bracelet. I actually copied it from a a colleague’s. I used green crystal beads, silver toned wire, a chain and a heart shaped pendant support. Many thanks to Marina for modelling. :-D

Here is the necklace I made for my friend Paola’s birthday. Since she expressed her admiration for this necklace here, I decided to make one especially for her. I didn’t have enough blue glass beads so I used green glass beads of the same shape instead.

I have found the pattern for this lovely Mandala doily here and I decided to give it a try. It was easier than I expected and the result is pretty!

Some time ago I found a nice project on how to woven bowl basket here, and I thought it was a great idea to give it a try.
Alas, the project proved to be more challenging than expected and it took me quite a long time to complete it. At a certain point I even almost gave it up for good. But after “few” months, I decided that it couldn’t be left there standing in the way any more. So, I finished it despites it is far from being perfect!!
What I found more difficult was the start of the project: the twine, cut straight from the bobbin, was too curly and I struggled to keep it in place. I used plenty of clips but that was a pain in the neck. Before starting, I recommend to cut the lengths of twine and straighten them.
Here is the result. I also added a bit of hot glue to fix it.
