make a cool little crochet bangle. she used sari silk (some of which i have although mine is more reds purples). nothing to stop me! simple, quick and a cover up for some ugly cheap plastic bangles (i 'spose you could use wood)
(oh and as an aside, someone i know met vickie at a book signing or yarn seminar or something or other and said vickie was A DEAR! well i'm certainly NOT surprised about that. it comes across. you can tell she's just one genuinely nice babe)
i'll cut it into chunks and freeze it. i have bananas and coconut milk. i'm WELL on my way to making this ridiculously easy pineapple sorbet (with my own mods of course). i think some pistachios would be a nice addition too, don't you? (AFTER the blending that is)
there's just something about strawberry AND rhubarb together. tart, sweet, gooey. like i said, YUM and the urban housewife shows us how to make it into VEGAN cobbler! YUM (and she's got a KICK ASS BLOG in general) (via craftzine)
with the focal bead i made out of resin. although it is incredibly FAR FROM PERFECT, for my first attempt at something like this, it's passable (well, a little pass that is).
i went to lucinda's beads in windsor. i asked how i could finish the necklace off. they suggested crimp beads and a lobster claw clasp. well, that's what i did! it DOES look better than when all the wires were hanging out (see a few postings ago for the UNfinished pics)
(by the way, i like lucinda's a great deal. they're friendly, helpful and it's a cool little store. PLUS you may get visited by a cat and/or a dog if you're lucky!!!)
i still have to finish it off. i'm going to put two larger beads on the ends and thread back the wires through the beads. i'll leave a loop on each end and put some sort of clasp on it. i don't have the beads or the clasp yet. i'll be on a search for them
the focal bead is one of the resin ones i made. the other beads are glass that i got here and there. the wires are just craft wire. soft and quite bendable. i just braided the three strands on each side of the focal bead
