You're all most welcome - we should have a Pimples' Seedy Weekend sometime where we can sort out some of the techniques that people get stuck on. Just as long as you don't ask me to explain two-needle right angle weave because that's the one that I always get stuck on!  ;D

Not between now and Christmas but maybe in the spring?

That looks like a very complicated little amulet/box Lynn. Lovely colours. I like the idea of a get together and I would come if I could get there.
In the mean time here is what I managed to make with Lynn's kit from the table of swaps.
Its a very simple pattern and they work up quickly. I will be raiding my beads to see if I can make some more in other colours.
Thanks Lynn!

Julia, those have come out just beautifully -  and you're not that far away from me, we will so have to have that get-together in the spring  ;D

Finally finished this although (or perhaps because) I know there are lots of other things I really should be doing instead!

I found a nice mother of pearl button

And since I'm hogging, here, have a closeup of all those colours too  8)

I think it looks a bit Moroccan - something about the colours - but do you think it'd look better if the flowers were in a regular pattern instead of random?

I think it looks great as a random pattern, it's lovely  :)
