April Finish Or Frog Along

It's time for the month’s Finish Or Frog 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 to get to grips with during the month.

It seems April's going to be a busy month - there's quite a few people joining in this month.

Both Ericka and Padmini will both be working on completing the projects they nominated for the March Finish Or Frog Along. So if you know you have a larger project to tackle, feel reassured that you don't have to finish it by the end of the month - this is just a 'gentle encouragement' kind of challenge!

Gloria stuck down this luscious looking agate cabochon, then forgot about it for months. As yet, Gloria hasn't decided whether to create a necklace or a cuff bracelet with it, so I guess we'll just have to wait for the big reveal.

Dee has paired an orphan lampwork bead with some Czech glass and some seed beads, but isn't quite sure how she'll finish her project.

I'll be working on finishing off a couple of simple safety pin cuff bracelets. I've had the safety pins beaded for a few months, but haven't had the inclination to finish them. All it should take is a little bit of elastic and some stringing - but it's so boring!

And, following on from her success with last month's finish along, Gemma is hoping to work on this beautiful Dragon Bangle by Nancy Jones, which is featured in Beadwork Feb/Mar '11. Gemma says "I bought to back issue a few months ago specifically for this bangle. I bought the beads, but got fed up with it as the long magatamas I have are really irregular in size. Its taking a lot of sorting to get even rows."

If you missed out on joining in this month, don't fret. Join us over in the Facebook Group for all the encouragement you'll ever need.
