Finish Friday ….a day early…..

since tomorrow is the first of June and I wish to post the next SewAlong Project tomorrow,  I figured I would do my Friday post today…don’t you just love it when I mix everything up ??

We had a lovely long weekend…the weather was fabulous (for a change ) we grilled a lot and enjoyed the time relaxing in the garden.

During this time I managed to do some beading. I made two necklaces.  I have had the Crystal Rondelles for  awhile and finally did something with them.

The pattern is a freebie…. Collier Ecro by Penico.

Bronz necklace

What I found interesting was that each side of the necklace gave a different color….here's a close up of the cream side…

On the other side you see more Gold…..

Since I had so much fun beading this necklace and it was fast & easy…. I made one in Blues….

This is the silver side….

In keeping with the summer feeling I made this crystal Butterfly…it also was a freebie… Collier Papillion.


I have been waiting for Sabine Lipperts book to come out and it was delivered in time for the weekend. It has some lovely designs in it but first I need to order more crystal beads ! It comes in German & English.
