One thing at a time? Not me!!!!

18 Sep

I was sitting here during my lunch break trying to decide what to do after inhaling my horrible cheese and pickle sandwich.  (CREATE really need to get a better sandwich maker in, they are going down hill FAST!)


So I had a nose in my bag to see what I could make!  About a million half started things fell out at me.


So by revealing them to you I vow to actually have the finished by Sunday night and to post them on here!  And if I don’t you can call me names or something 🙂


Project 1: Button Necklace & Bracelet  

The other week I bought a big bag of lovely buttons from the Shiney Company shop at the Paintworks in Bristol.  I plan to make a multi-colour necklace and bracelet from them.

Project 2: Swarovski Crocheting Bracelet

Yesterday when I got home from work there was a jiffy envelope for me.  Mr Sparkles asked as to what it contained –  I had a sudden panic: had been ordering beads in my sleep or something???  I couldn’t think!




I completed an online questionnaire on the Swarovski Create Your Style website ages ago and was entered into a draw to win a bracelet kit.

This one might not get done!  My crochet isn’t very good and Swarovski instructions are sometimes a bit random to follow! 


Project 3: Tea Cup Pincushions

OK so not actually in my bag but they still need finished!  Making them, well, because I wanted one!  I will be selling these at the MISI Makers Event in Bristol.  I’m sure a couple will also appear on my online shop.  ONCE I GET THEM FINISHED!!!!!!!!!

Project 4: MISI Makers Event Swag Bag Gifts

In case you haven’t seen a poster or leaflet, the first 100 people in to the MISI Makers Bristol event will get a free Swag Bag with all sorts of bits in it!  My contribution will be something made from these…

….. there the plan ends!


So by Sunday night you should have a full report on the success of these projects!


(Get the names ready just in case tho…..)
