Hello all, I am so sorry but I have nothing to show this week.......I have been struck down with a sickness virus,
and am very poorly ! I am just starting to gain strength and shall provide some eye candy as soon as I am able !
The TAST CHALLENGE  is having a catch-up week for those who are falling behind, so I chose the right week to be ill........I do hope you all out there are well, have a great week end and once again please forgive me.......
I do cherish every and hugs to all !!!!!

Hello people, yes another week has flown by and I have another mandala to show you all ! I decided to do something a little different with this one.......I have just learnt to do a little 'TATTING', so I have added some tatted flowers ! The stitch this week, I found quite hard to do......I did have difficulty getting my head around it,
but alas, it all came right in the end....but dear Sharon, I certainly did struggle!!! Please give us a nice easy stitch next week (or the week after, if its a catch up week ) I adore this keeps me focused !!

The sun is shining here in the uk.....have a fantastic week, where ever you are !!!   xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello people, Its that time of the week again, and I have another beaded mandala to share with you !! The stitch for week 11 is whipped wheels and I must say this is such a creative stitch for me......My mind just buzzes with this stitch.....I swear I could have done so much more of these little beauties !! The main focus was a very large bead which I covered in crochet.... ( I would love to make a bowl full of large crocheted CHIC !),

lots of whipped wheels, pearls, beads, sparkle......OH WOW I SO LOVED THIS WEEK!!
Foggy here in the UK today....have a wonderful, peaceful and happy week !!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello people, here is my sample for TAST 2012 WEEK 9 ! Couching is something that I have not done a lot of,

so I took the bull by the horns and the first thing that I thought of was a tree ! I adore trees,I think it is so sad to chop them in honour of the mighty oak, this is MY tree.............I couches down all the foundation branches and then used a crochet hook ti intertwine and knarl the branches...twisting and turning, I then added lots of beads and french knots.........Hope you like my mighty blossom tree..........xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx !!!!!
