Hi my name is Louise (Lou) and I am a craftaholic. I am in my mid twenties and live in wonderful Scotland. My addictions are jewelry making and cross stitching, I do knit and love to try other things, but these are the two that have stuck. I have been stitching ever since i can remember, but only started stitching properly when i was pregnant with my first daughter. I manage to get my fix in between looking after my two angels and hubby.

Its been a while....

Wow, I didn't realise how long it has been since I've posted a blog. In my time away I've managed to finish a few things to show. I have finally framed my Christmas angel, and couldn't resist hanging her up now (yeah, I know its a bit early but I couldn't wait.).


I have made a fair bit of progress on the landscape I am doing for my mum and dads Christmas pressie too... I am now using a colour other than grey and am sure i can get it done in the next two weeks (fingers crossed).


In between this I did a quick stitch that was a freebie with crossstitcher UK magazine, Its hanging just now too... (again I know its early for Christmas pictures but I cant help myself, I'm worse than the kids lol...)

Jewelry wise I have also managed to get a fair bit done. I have given up on my macrame bracelet and will give the necklace a try another time, but for now it has been chainmaille practice. I made some bracelets for my girls in the byzantine weave, a bracelet for myself using mobious flowers and a pendant made from mobious flowers. Alongside this I also mad a charm bracelet for myself, It could do with a few more charms on it but I want to make some from wire. So they will have to wait till I have the time to play again.

I still have to take better pictures than this and try to get some of the bracelets I made for the girls.
Other than that I have been getting my Christmas shopping done and took my girls to see the Christmas lights being switched on in the town centre. Which was magical, if i had only taken my camera to capture the amazement on the girls faces. Especially when Santa turned up.

Back to course work for a while so it may be a while before I get a chance to post again. My course has also been the reason that I haven't managed to post much on my yahoo groups but hopefully that will change soon.

So for now Happy crafting and if I don't get a chance for another post before hand have a Happy Christmas. xx

Your angel is beautiful. The frame really sets it off nicely. The landscape is coming along nicely, and the little freebie is cute! Your jewelry is lovely.

Your work is gorgeous. I love all the cross stitch and the jewelry is beyond incredible. That flower is to die for, really.

Thank you for your kind words! The bubble wands are incredibly easy to do! Wouldn't take me a minute for you to figure it out. :-) Quick and fun. Kids love to make them too. They just need a little help with the wire wrapping.

Nancy said...

Your angel is beautiful and it's the perfect time to hang her, not too early at all! I can see why you haven't posted much, you have been busy stitching! Great progress and the jewelry is gorgeous too!
