Only me ;-)  Hope you have all been having a lovely crafty time since I last posted and managed some gorgeous projects.  It is new challenge time over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog and the theme for the next 2 weeks is Flowers.  So the DT team have designed a wonderful collection of items to inspire you to take part.....there are even mouth watering cakes.

For my makes I decided to make a tie back for our new curtains with some of the lovely DK wool that That Craft Place Shop stocks which is gorgeous to use and work with.  They have lots of wonderful colours to choose from.
As you can see I have chosen to use natural colours as with the pattern on our curtains being leaves it just seemed right that the tie back was green and I wanted the flowers to look Summery and bright, but not over powering so I went for Daisy colours.  I am pretty pleased with how my first ever crochet tie back has turned out and it is in use every day on our door curtain xxx

I was so inspired by the theme of the challenge I just had to make something with beads as well.  The gorgeous focal flowers and twisted diamond beads I have used are from That Craft Place and the seed beads and crystal bicones are from my stash.  This is the first pair of barefoot sandals I have ever made and I really enjoyed it so there will be more.  I will be selling them so if you are interested feel free to leave me a comment or email me and I am sure I can offer lots of colour choices.....Not that I am too much of a bead hoarder......OK I am really lol xxx  So that is it for my makes for now, but please enter a flower make into the new challenge and don't forget to stop by That Craft Place Inspiration Blog as the lovely DT members are working on lots of new projects and tutorials for you for over the next few weeks so remember to keep checking back and comments on the projects are always welcomed and encouraged, thanks xxx
