Show and Tell Monday

Another Show and Tell Monday, only offering is a tassel bracelet, used seed beads had to be careful that none got on the floor, otherwise they would have been sniffed up by the dog.
Spending the next two weeks planning new designs for my Christmas Fair and Open House, so many ideas do not know where to start.

I was tagged this week by Inka from Inkings Designs, had to list 7 things you may not know about me, quite difficult this, so check out the other MMP blogs for the Pink ladies offerings.

Have just got out my bead looms so watch this space for some sample work also plan to do some roses in petit point.

The sun is now shining, after the torrential rain last night it makes a welcome change, planning a picnic on the front at Southsea with MIL on Tuesday, heres hoping the weather stays fine so that we can take a stroll along the front, finishing with an ice cream. Very summer.


  1. Hi Carolee,

    The tassel bracelet up close is just so pretty and sparkling. Maybe it was the flashlight from the camera, but I can imagine that as a beautiful accessory piece that one wears on their wrist. Just beautiful!

  6. Hi Carolee,
    Your beaded bracelet is beautiful...I hope everyone clicks to enlarge, because then you can see its true colors. The combination of purple and green are outstanding and your work is meticulous. Thanks for your tag items. I've been tagged as well, and will do that this evening after work!!! What fun!

  7. Iknow what you mean about keeping track of the beads. I have hard wood floors and in the middle of the night the kitten will find a button and start to roll it and drive me crazy. She can find it but I never can! Beautiful work. Lilli
