1st April Goal Completed(ish).


You may notice that my bracelet does not have the ruffles of the retro ruffles cuff. I was merrily brickstitching away for hours and hours and while I loved the project I realised that I have a few commitments that I need to get on with; a necklace for a forum swap, some little gifts for giveaway prizes at the next Vintage Pretty Fayre and 2 birthday gifts, as well as working out some new designs for April is Forever. So instead of putting it away, as I knew it would never get finished I simply added a row of picots on the edge and called it done. I still like it and will probably make the full version at a later date as the instructions for this are so good. I particularly like this style of fastening and will be experimenting with it in other designs.

That's a pretty bracelet! I'm always fascinated by beaded jewellery, however, I've never try to bead properly as it looks very difficult >o<
Anyway, I think your creation are lovely!

That looks amazing Sarah! I often leave bits off when I'm making something from a pattern :)
