To slim

and this during Christmas.

My favoured rainbowtendril had to loose circumference because it was not laying proberly around my neck.
Ich crochet it now slimmer  and with other colour-combination.

The necklace has 50 cm without clasp.

The Lukas' „New Engine“

Lukas is an engine driver in a puppet play that I loved when I was a child.
Preparing the Christmas decoration I found the wooden pendants for the Christmas tree, my children liked very much. Among these is an engine and suddenly I had the idea to bead one. I could not get this idea out of my head and so I started beading. Here you see the new engine of Lukas:

It has about 7 x 3 x 5 cm.

I used seed beads size 8, 11 and 15 and Rivolis 14 and 10 mm.

Winston, the reindeer

For a long time I refused to bead Christmas Ornaments but now I have fallen in love with Winston, the reindeer. Look yourself, please:

You can find the wonderful, correct instructions here:
Actual the filling of his tummy is a glass bauble of 30mm. I had no one, so my Winston has a 30mm cotton wool ball in his paunch.

A little romanticism

After two weeks fighting against several viruses, I needed something beautiful, easy to bead. I found it in the Beadwork-Magazine from August 2013. It is the “Heart to heart-bracelet” by Janet Palumbo. Finally, a pattern where everything is right from the text up to the drawings.

I like the 3-D-effect, the result of using peanut-beads.
