Baubles and Beads

Ooops!  I seem to have been missing from Blogland for a while and there are really no excuses.  Have I been busy....Not really, but I do have a couple of things to show you.

Last year I tried beading baubles, loved the sparkly little things so bought a number of packs of baubles ready to be beaded (as you do). Of course time ran out for Christmas 2014 which meant I stored the baubles ready for this Christmas.  I looked on Pinterest and decided to try my hand at making the patterns up as I went along.  Voilà! look at this little lot....

They are of course a variation on a theme, it takes so long to get the patterns right.

Just another two boxes of 12 to do!!!!!!  May be they will be ready for 2016

As some of you know I have a smocking group that meets once a month, and its always nice to make something special for Christmas.  This year the main 'show stopper' (what a laugh) was a mini wreath.  There were a couple left over, so I thought I would make one.

Its only about 8" in diameter so not quite big enough for the front door
The weather this weekend is supposed to be awful, so I think I might spend some time in my sewing room with next months challenge, if you don't know what I'm talking about go over to flickr and have a look - you might like to join us.


  1. All you need to do is add a wee basket to the bottom of each for a balloon ride!:)

    That wreath would even be cute at the top of a tree!:)

  2. Love your beaded baubles and your own design as well.

  3. Love the twinkling baubles and that wreath is just the sweetest !
