Finding things in my stash

Yesterday I had a little rootle around in some of my drawers of craft stash. I came across these pieces of beadwork that I made years ago.  The two book marks are stitched in 'square stitch' and are in fact cross stitch patterns.  I bought them with the intention of using them as beadwork patterns and have never actually cross stitched them. The little scottie dogs look so much nicer than the photo implies. The stained glass window pattern looks stunning when I hold it up to the light and the sun shines through.The final one is a piece that I made many times in different colours for different bead loving friends. I love beading little pictures and have loads of little bits and bobs in the  stash drawer.

    1. Hi Lee
      Thanks for the lovely offer but I have enough beads to stock a small shop. I am trying to say no when I am offered goodies.... It is so hard to say no when you are a craftoholic. Perhaps I should challenge you to make something with them. Alternately you can send them to me and I will make them into something that you would like and send them back to you. Let me know what you think.
