Hello and welcome to the :
I've been a bit slack and haven't done a post to introduce my partner and share what we swapped. In my defense, I am still lacking a computer and I find writing a blog on my mobile to be painful beyond words. And the very INSTANT I sit down to write a blog I become the most needed person in the world ("mum, mum, mum, MUM").
We've all got a lot of beautiful creations to oggle and drool over so I will keep it sweet and short now, and look to writing up a more detailed piece later.
My parter this time around is the extraordinary Krafty Max (www.kraftymax.net). This lady can whip up a stunning seed beaded beauty without breaking into a sweat. To say that I am in awe is a mighty understatement.
This is the stunning stash that was given to me:
So many tiny drops of delight in one package!
Instantly drawn to the russets, reds and oranges I made a series of daisy-chain based pieces:
This is a gloriously seventies feel 3-drop peyote pattern from 69DSIGNS on etsy (peyote-pattern-retro-leaf-instant) and was originally intended as a choker with that beautiful blue / gold cab as a centre piece. But I've changed my mind and I'm going to finish it off as a bracelet for one of my favourite friend's big birthday.
I have still got oodles of goodies to play with and I'm looking forward to many more weeks of playing, designing and finishing off.
A very special thank you to our hostess with the mostess, Linda Anderson, who is one of the most kind, gentle souls I've ever encountered. And who puts up patiently with my rambled messages and poo stories. You're an angel Linda.
Please be sure to check out all of the lovelies on this hop:
