Scissors fobs.

August 4, 2010  |  Featured Posts  |  No Comments

One of the things I would like to do, via this blog, is to offer some items for sale. Some of them will be items I have made myself and others will be books, charts, kits etc from my very varied stash. I’m trying to reduce what I have and think it would be a good idea to offer bits and pieces for sale at a reasonable price. I’m happy to mail anywhere in the world.

The scissors fobs shown are made using a variety of beads including handmade polymer clay, gemstones, swarovski crystals and sterling silver findings. The only part which isn’t sterling silver is the trigger clasp which is silver plated.

If you are interested in buying either then please contact me and I’ll get back to you.

Selling price is £9 per fob. This doesn't include post and packing which would be charged at actual cost.


BOTH fobs are now SOLD.

Works in progress.

I’d like to share a couple of the designs I’m currently working on. The Prairie Schooler is a long thin design showing all the months of the year. It’s taking me a while to complete – I suppose it would help if I only worked on one design at a time!

The canvas work will finish as a very small hanging bag. It’s a new design to me which I have changed quite a bit from the pattern but I plan to finish according to the instructions. It’s working up quite quickly.

I hope you like them.

Choosing colours.

Am I the only person who finds it difficult to make final choices in colour. Whether it’s for a cross stitch design or knitting or canvas work – I take forever to make my final choice.

I am so conservative in my colour palette and find it hard to add in “ugly” colours or bright colours – I tend to opt for muted tones all the time.

This is the palette I have chosen to knit a fairisle scarf design in the new Rowan magazine. The wool I have chosen is a mix of wool, cashmere and microfibre.

I’m looking forward to getting started – it’s knitted on a circular needle which is something I haven’t done for years.
