The blue bracelet I made yesterday sold, but mostly it was bits & bobs - mobile phone charms and some of the key rings, bookmarks etc.
However I always think the nice things about doing craft fairs are the other stall holders, you get to hear where's good to sell and where is not so good. I must be braver I think & try some of the larger craft fairs......watch this space to see if I venture out of my comfort zone!
PS: Bella the cat has made a full recovery following her tumble off the roof yesterday & is back to her meowy self!

I've done them in sets of 4, some with 2 sets of 2 matching beads and some with 4 different beads. The ones with the pink ribbon are the 10mm rings whilst the gold ribbon has the opening type.
I think they look quite sweet!

I also started to make a few bits and bobs for the Mumsnet Easter Crafters Swap, but can't post any pictures or it will spoil the suprise for my swapper!

The toggles I will definately use in the future, probably on bracelets as they are lovely and chunky.

Still on a blue theme, I bought 10 of these lovely chunky turquoise beads and made a bracelet. I've kept this one really simple but the beads are so chunky, that it's a bit heavy.
I bought some amethyst coloured chunky beads too so decided rather than using them all in one bracelet, I added some seed beads and just used one of the beads to make this one. I'm rather pleased with the effect (a sort of hybrid between my multi strand and the chunky bracelet!). I'm just pondering whether a necklace in a similar style would work?
I've also just seen the Mumsnet Crafters Blog Challenge to Recycle - Reuse - Re-craft, and have 2 bracelets given to me for just that purpose from MNs Gingermonkey - so I will get re- crafting tomorrow.

Being rather chuffed with my multi strand necklace of yesterday, I did another - this time using a big medley of allsorts of colours of seed beads and bugle beads. It's guaranteed to match any outfit and I have named it Carnival !
And I thought I'd post another antidote to winter - a photo I took in Cornwall last October (yes, that's October!)
And while I am looking back over some of my photos, I thought I'd share a few more: 2 Cornish sunsets
and a Scottish Loch
