Afternoon all.
I hope you have had a good bank holiday, and not worked too hard. I have had a lovely day - not sure about the children, though. Hubby took us on a tour of three local craft shops, and I must confess to buying some new goodies, along with some bits for my classes. Then we went to the pub for lunch, yes Michelle, it was little ones idea, so I haven't even got to cook tonight -hurray.
Yesterday and today I have been working on a class making Accolade cards. Basically, you prick out a pattern, and at each hole you thread on a sequin and a bead, then go back through the sequin and then the hole, so that the bead holds the sequin in place. Then, a metallic thread is wound round the sequins to form a pattern.
The challenges I am entering this first card in are;
Totally Gorjuss - in stitches
Incy Wincy Designs - anything goes


  1. what a great technique .Thanks for sharing

  6. Hi Hon
    Check your blog every day (at least once) to see what you have been up to.
    This card is fab, I will have to find something with a prickable pattern and give it a go.
    I also have to find the little needles (2 packets) I bought when we made the teal flower shape.
