First ever ornament!!

A belated Happy Mother's day to all my dear friends and lovely mothers :)

After a while of being down, I feel good today (well almost). The weekend was quite good. Finally managed to go out and buy some materials to help me finish off my crafts. I managed to get some great fabrics. Unfortunately I have not taken any pictures of them. Would definitely post some with my next post.
With that I was able to finish off my first ever ornament!!!

Sorry about the poor picture. Made a twisted cord with a mix of the same pink used for the "V" and an off-white

That's a first again for me. So am pretty thrilled with the finish.

After a while, I also have a beading finish to share. Last Friday was my niece's birthday. So, I made this necklace for her. Also made some custard in my never-ending attempts to include fruits in our daily diet!!

This is plain custard with apples. V was a little upset that I did not peel the skin off the apples. But sweet baby managed to eat it without too much of a fuss, thanks to the custard. Infact, I was gifted with a sticky kiss after this as a treat :) Happy mother's day to me I guess haha

Edited to include my next project. After a loot of browsing and hunting for a new project, I have decided to start another small one while I gather the materials required for my next big one.

I plan to work on a freebie by Manka. The design is here. I fell in love with the colours and the design is something that I've never worked on before.
So, friends that's from me for now.
Till my next update.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir..

Sounds like you had a nice Mother's Day - sticky kiss and all :)

Congrats on your ornament finish. What method did you use to twist the cording? It turned out nice.

Your necklace turned out beautifully.

Looking forward to seeing your next project.

Au Revoir to you too!
