macrame bracelet

been playing with macrame again :)
i used DMC threads,i kept the six strands together and used 2 of theses for the middle bit and 2 for doing the knots. feels a bit lose to me but when i tried to push the knots up closer to make it tighter you couldn't see the knots!!!
so i'll have to try different threads if i do any more macrame jewerlly!!

flying oddities!!!

these are a bit odd-they're meant to be dragonflies LOL!!
we i was about 8 i made a macrame pot holder at school......i was thinking about this the other day and thought 'if i could do it at 8 then it should be no trouble!!' ,i found these little things on you tube.....they were very fiddly to make and i think if i made any more i'd need to concentrate on the body length!!!

vanilla sugar

the challenge over on the vanilla sugar blog this month is to 'decorate, make or alter a box, jar or tin.'
i've decorated a box that had incence sticks in. it's a very simply decorated box because it's the inside that counts!
i've made it for my daughters 18th at the end of the month....she collects these beads so i thought i'd make her something to store them in...i've got her another bracelet and some beads and left some space so she can put the one's she already has into it.
