Hello again, well I am back as promised with some more photos of my craft room and also a new design for me … a knotted crochet headband / earwarmer.
I do enjoy doing the odd bit of crochet. I have to admit after making so many owl hats last winter I almost got fed up of it but I am back enjoying it again. Here is a headband I made last night.
I am now crafting in my craft room. The carpet fitters returned on Saturday with my carpet and fitted it in no time. After that it was a case of taking my storage unit to pieces and then reassembling it again in my room. All that was easy cos then I had to bring everything upstairs and pack it all away. I have to admit was blumming exhausted by the end of Sunday but no rest for the wicked – I then had a night shift to do!
So here is my room partially filled…
A very tidy desk ….. doesn’t look like that at the moment lol. I have now got a light fitting and curtains. I also have another shelving unit to be put in. I was going to have some floating shelves above my desk but I have changed my mind for now, I prefer having the space there for now ….. maybe in the future I will find something I would like there instead.
I probably won’t have a post for you tomorrow because it is my mother-in-law’s funeral however I shall be back on Saturday.
If you would like the chance to win one of my bracelets pop over to my crafting facebook page before Sunday to find out how.
Have a lovely evening x

Hi everyone. It has been a few days since my last post because I have been on nights. All finished now though so that is good.
So I discovered this beautiful tutorial on Youtube and I have to say I adore this bracelet.
I have made this with gorgeous fresh water potato pearls and Swarovski chaton crystal montees. It is so pretty in real life and HEAVY!
Here is a closer look at the detail of the design.
I am definitely going to make more of these but I think I might have a bit of fun with brightly coloured glass pearls and see what it looks like.
My craft room is almost finished now – just curtains and shelves to go up. I have moved in and am happy up here. I shall share some more pics tomorrow of the progress.
If you would like to know what I used to make my bracelet here are the picture links …..

See you all tomorrow xx
