Being Creative

*Sigh* the week vacation I had is over - nothing good ever lasts ...

But at least I did more things than just play with my Wii *grin*

I finished a few things I've started a looooong time ago.
Like this table cloth

A cheap kit I got sometimes begining of the year. I actually bought two, just for the material - after some trial and error, I actually got the print out, so I'll going to use it for another table cloth I've got a pattern for.

I also tired some new things:

A bead bracelet, I was just playing with the million or so beads I've got over the years. Only thing I haven't quiet figured out is how to close it.

This is a bead neckless I've got as a kit in France some time ago. Fairly simple to make and I don't even know if I ever will wear it, but it's pretty.

Last, but certainly not least, is a set of stitch markers I've made. The whole construction is fairly simple. The tricky part was finding the right wire. I'm still not completely happy with the solution I've found - I think the next time I use something a little bit more flexible.
There is more than one of course:

I've made eight (and no idea where number eight is)

Today was a needlecraft trade show in Michaelstadt, so I got more patterns and material for some time to come *grin*
Next project will be some x-mas cards (I don't want to end up like last year, when I was way too late and had to put something together at the last minute)

That table cloth design is beautiful! I don't have a table to hang a cloth on or I would be trying to do one of those myself.
Also love your stitch markers. They are so delicate and pretty. When I make jewlery I use this very fine metal cording that is enclosed in plastic. (I really don't know how they get it that small. it's tiny!) And of course I have misplaced it or I would be able to tell you the name of it. But it seems like it would be perfect for your stitch markers.
By the way, your bracelet is in great colors, I like it too!
