Show and Tell Monday

Finally finished my gift to myself, cross eyed by the end of the beading strip but am pleased with the finished results. The fabric is a mock suede and the picture an eagle, made in the messenger style gives me lots of room when going to exhibitions etc.

Finished the Melody Wrap and again am pleased with the finished article, the colours are perfect for a summer evening or to dress up evening attire.

Went to a knitting exhibition on Saturday, bit disappointed as not many stalls, so could not part with the money I had in my pocket, wanting to get out. Did buy some sari tape yarn, which I will knit into belts with beads and a bag of bits and bobs to put through the embellisher machine. Will post the results when finished.

Have got to get a wriggle on this week, to finish the Mothering Sunday gift and card samples and my newsletter for March. Then starting on Easter goodies.
