Beading for a Change

I thought I'd share my latest bead weaving project with you today - a simple necklace using cube beads in two sizes.  I spent an enjoyable morning at a quilt exhibition with a friend and have come home with all sorts of ideas buzzing around in my head - particularly some of the machine embroidery projects made me realise this is a technique I've not done in ages which is a shame because I have plenty of exciting fabrics and threads to use up being the hoarder that I am LOL!!  We all say it I know but oh for more hours in the day.

Make My Monday challenge

The challenge this week on Make My Monday is to use the colours of blue and brown.  This wonderful bear character is Wellington from Docrafts and he is surrounded by blue flowers so just right.  The entire card was produced within their Digital Designer programme, partly because I felt like dabbling with the computer and partly (well mainly really) that my desk space has shrunk to almost nothing so no space for regular crafting.  This was a bit of displacement activity  to avoid the tidying but but I will get around to that tomorrow - just didn't feel in the mood today!!  There are some beautiful examples from the design team so follow the link to take a look.
