Our Magnolia is in bloom. First day of Spring tomorrow.This blog post by Hanna inspired my own bead creations over the last couple of days Below are the paper ones. I liked adding the text words. Others are wrapped with metallic thread or wire, or encircled with stamping.These are the fabric ones. Embossing worked well. Threads were glued on with gel medium. And these are some I made a few months ago - you wrap silk strips (the pink) around a wooden chopstick. Stich some kunin felt with metallic thread and a fancy stitch from your machine. Then wrap strips of the felt over the silk and use a heat gun to burn back the felt - crusty and lovely eh?Purchases from the past week that are making me happy :
Silk sari ends - shot silk and gorgeously raggy....wonder what I will create with these.And a few new accessories - I needed the new bag and wallet (my others broke in the last week)...I just really wanted the necklace!What's making you happy this week?
