In South Africa it is officially Autumn, but the weather is so nice it still feels like summer. I am busy with a few new patterns and will keep you all up to date with the progress. But so much to do and so little time. My photographer (my son) moved out to his own place and I now need to spruce up my photography skills. It is not easy, he spoiled me.
While cleaning up my work space I AGAIN came across the endless samples and examples, created
for the Master Class Program I taught throughout the last six years. All of them beautiful pieces which I am sure can be enjoyed by all. Only need to finish off some of the instructions and fine tune the illustrations. This is a promise that I made previously, but this is the year it must be done!

Today is the official date for the beginning of our South African spring. A beautiful and sunny day - so happy spring is here at last. I am not a winter person at all, and like bears, I tend to hibernate during the cold winter months. Now I am awake and the ideas for new designs is flowing freely again.

Beautiful feminine bracelet, that can be a stunning necklace too! Craw and peyote stitch combined and not difficult at all. Even though the pattern came so easily to me, I struggled for a few days to get the pattern published. At one stage I wanted to name my beautiful Adriana , Satan's daughter, so frustrated I was with trying to publish the pattern. First the illustrations that I did, did not save correctly, then the file gave me that awful " file corrupted" message and in the last few days I rewrote, re illustrate the pattern at least six times. Well, it is now done and posted at last. And just for the record - I was sooo happy with the first pattern Enjoy
