My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

ssshhh, dont tell anyone

but I have started something new!
I know I said I wouldn't do anything until Mar and to be honest I might leave it until April but I realised I needed some gifts so I have been busy on those
A little bit of goldwork

 the design
Applying the gold kid (leather)
adding some pearl purl
fuzzy photo but its there!
couching with jap
and adding the check chips (top heart)
I have remembered how much I love the fiddle fiddle that comes with goldwor.
note to self to do some more
I also love the fact that this  oh so particular of techniques looks a right mess until the end!

so beautiful!! No need to keep to a strict time table, as long as you are loving what you do.
