Pincushion "Basket"

Last summer I tidied up a bit my stash and found these wooden bells, we used some years ago to make pincushions. They got a place near to a bag of Halftilas and this idea was born:

To leave the legal limbo you get something new. This pattern is printed. You find it in my etsy-shop.

This is a nice idea by "Bizsuteri Design" from Hungary using Crescent-Beads:

Easy to bead and very dramatic.

Although I did not post for a long time, I am not inactive. I am preparing the new school-year.
Then I try something new. Here is a photograph to give you an idea.
This mouse is crocheted. It did not want to be on a picture, so the photograph is not really nice.

Sonoko's way

In the Bead & Button Magazine from February 2014 explaint Sonoko Nozue her way of bead croching. Now I tried it myself.
I do not know, if I have read the pattern correctly. But I like the result.

I used 3mm pearls and facetted beads of the same size.
