my creative space . . . one thing leads to another

Last week's embroidered bookmarks led me to thinking of using a similar design for other 'tweedie' items, hence the wrist cuff idea came about. I don't personally wear wrist cuffs, but I like textile jewelery so . . .

. . . I made some with simple embroidery detail and some with a basic brass eyelet decoration. And yes, I used empty loo-rolls to display them - well, I had some to hand and they were the perfect fit :)

You can still enter my Giveaway for my 'tweedie' egg cosies - I'll leave it open for another few hours until Thursday 6 pm, 'cos I've no idea what I'll be doing tomorrow, and my original closing time of mid-day may go by without my noticing!

Lots more crafty spaces over here - some very creative things going on! :)
