Rhombic Dodecahedron Calendar

hbmeyer Rhombic Dodecahedron Calendar

I find this 12-sided calendar a nice idea for a gift.
It is made for 2009 but you can adapt it to 2010 from the blank template yourself, possibly even handwritten and embellished with funny sketches.

Spiral Rope Chain

beltana Spiral Rope Chain

Actually it’s time to bead me a nice necklace, e.g. this spiral chain.
At least I find that I should ;-)

She says that it is an easy stitch that is worked quickly.
Once I tried the stitch and I find that she’s right.
Only I gave the necklace away and took (of course!) no photo before.
Well, I have to make it again, this time for me ;-)

Hmpf, they are kitschy – but I find both Panda brothers cute, anyhow ;-))
And you can find a tutorial, too.

But this is not for me, I haven’t even finished the paper folded bracelet ;-)

You can do a lot with wire – even hair pin lace!
Looks wonderful, the bracelet, doesn’t it?

Oh yes, my list ;-))

But I have already a self-made hair pin lace loom ;-))
