Spring at last

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.
The 40% discount offer sadly ends tomorrow, do not loose out. I trust you will enjoy making the free pattern and feel free to share with your friends on the social media. The next freebie will be available soon.
Do not forget to show off your Thembimbi Bracelet - I would love to see it! Share on my facebook page (see pattern for details)

Adriana Flower Bracelet



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

Carrie and Elizabeth


Finished the pattern at last.  Both the variations will be included in the pattern. So, if all goes well, I'll post the link to the pattern on Saturday.
This pendant is so beautiful I am going to make  a few extra in different colors  to match all my outfits.
Carrie is the pendant for the no nonsense lady, she wants something feminine but not over the top with bling as she wants to be in the background
Elizabeth is the choice for the women who wants to attract attention, still stylish but she want to be seen! What better way as to have bling bling around your neck
