March Finish Or Frog Along

Once again it’s time for the month’s Frog Or Finish Along! If you’ve only recently joined us, each month members of our Facebook Group nominate a project from their selections of projects which are lying forgotten in a dusty little corner of their craft space.

Erika is carrying over her project from last month – what will most likely be an absolutely stunning embroidered cuff. It’s been on her ‘to do list’ since last September. Gasp!

After her Finish Along success last month, Gemma has a new project to get to grips with and has decided it’s time to Frog Or Finish a chain maille style bracelet that she’s combining with some Precosia Twin Beads. But, it’s being difficult “It doesn't sit right, as the outer rows only have 4 beads on them so they keep slipping under the next row. I want to add coordinating 8s and drops to hopefully sort it out...if it doesn't work I shall have to rethink or frog it!”

Padmini is hoping to finish a project she started in response to the February Challenge. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to finish it on time for the challenge, but she intends to make a necklace. She says “I have to improve the pendant pattern but it gives me a chance to bust the seedbead stash!”

And I’m joining in this month with a silver version of the Jaipur Gems Bracelet from September’s Beads & Beyond. I started the bracelet in January, but was unable to finish it when I fell and hurt my hand. Looking at it now, there really isn’t a lot to do, but I dread weaving in all of the loose thread ends. It always feels like such a chore!

If you didn’t manage to send in details of any projects you want to finish this month, don’t fret. Join us over on our Facebook Group for lots of encouragement!
