Christmas presents

I FINALLY made a start on the Christmas presents. Here is the first.



I was unhappy with it as I worked on it, and finished it. But it has grown on me. Hopefully the recipient likes it too :)

I'm off for lunch and then to design another Christmas present! Have a great afternoon.

All done and waiting to be 'displayed'

YAY, I finished the photo purse! I worked on the strap from Thursday - after figuring out how to attach it - and also secured the fringe yesterday. The late night was well worth it :)



Now onto bigger things - literally speaking! :)

Fringe completed

I started on the fringe the other day, and managed to finish it last night. The 'second round' was quicker once I found my rhythm. I went for the double fringe after some suggestions, and finding that the single would have been too sparse!



I'm so happy with it. Unfortunately I can't photograph the movement of the fringe, but I like running my fingers over it and seeing it settle back into place!

Next is the strap. I have an idea how I want to make it. I'm just hesitant as the method I've chosen is slow going. I want to start using this soon so I have to be decisive! The next photo will be the purse all finished.

Thanks for stopping by and reading :)

UFO one of...many!

I finished stitching this necklace a long time ago but didn't have the right clasp for it. Well, I found it today on an old necklace and quickly went with the urge to complete it.



I want to try and start on the fringe of my photo purse today/this evening. If I'm too tired to work on that then I'll work on another UFO!

Happy beading and reading :)
