Ladies Night Out

Here's some more doings - this time it's beading. I love this pattern by Sheila Cleary called (unsuprisingly) Ladies Night Out.I made these three up in one afternoon - it makes up really quickly. It uses size 3 & 4 Swavorski crystals (the olive green one I used 4s and 5s I think) as well as little charlottes. I bought them from Meredith and her very gorgeous mum Jan from Silhouette Designs - they were our friendly neighbours during the February Stitches and Craft Show in Sydney. They are awesome beaders - their stand was busy from days opening to closing and their workshops are hugely popular. If you get the chance do a class with them. The size three crystals and the charlottes are hard to find - but they have them so give them a shout if you are looking for them. Mum bought some gorgeous cabachons from Jan as she and her husband go fossicking and then shape and polish them. She's mounted them on ultrasuede and is doing peyote stitch around them. They look terrific will take a picture one day when she's working on them at the shop.

Love your felted figures. They look like fun to make. Those beaded bracelets are lovely too. I love the swavrovski crystals they make even a simple design look exotic.
