Aaaaand here’s another one. :)

Und noch eins! :) Continue reading

Not too long ago, Zoey postet a Cellini Triangle over on the perlentiere.com board. She was kind enough to also share a link to the instructions.

I have been fascinated by the idea of this intricate looking but easy-peasy pendant ever since, and now I have finally gotten around to making my own labyrinthine triangle!

Seit Zoey im letzten Oktober ihre Cellini Dreiecke im Perlentier-Forum gepostet hat – netterweise hat sie auch gleich den Link zur Anleitung mitgeliefert – war ich fasziniert von deren labyrinth-artig verschlungener Form. Gestern bin ich endlich dazu gekommen, auch eines zu fädeln! Continue reading

I sewed a doorstop. Would you have guessed that from the title of this post?

Ha!

(Me neither.)

But the doorstop is awesome, check it out! :) Continue reading

I used to think that I couldn’t sew. Now that I’ve tried it I can’t remember why I thought that.

Another day, another contest on perlentiere.com! :D

This time, it  was all about beaded collectible figurines – anthropomorphic animals in kitschy-fancy dresses. You should absolutely go check out the contributions! There are some creative people out there!

I entered a little fairy bear as well as a bunny dame I developed myself.

Erinnert Ihr Euch noch an die kleine Schildkröte, die ich neulich geperlt habe? Ich habe jetzt noch eine zweite fertig und unterwegs ein paar wenige Fotos geschossen.

Nachdem ich gestern schon die englische Anleitung gepostet habe, präsentiere ich heute mit stolzgeschwelltem Font meine erste deutsche Anleitung! :)

Ich hoffe, sie gefällt Euch und Ihr bevölkert Eure Vitrinen und Setzkästen mit tausenden kleiner Schildkröten! (*muahahaaa* Sie werden die Weltherrschaft an sich reißen!) Continue reading

Remember the tortoise I showed you the other day? I made another one, with slightly bigger beads, and took some pictures along the way.

So today, I present to you my very first beading tutorial. :)

I hope you enjoy it and populate your show cases with lots and lots of tiny tortoises! Continue reading

Inspired* by mini tortoises a fellow Perlentiere.com forist, EvaBlond, posted recently, I stitched together this little fellow, whom I call Fred. (In case there is no name for this compulsive need to name every tom cat, stick, and lorry in your home, I propose to call this ailment “the Ikea-Complex”!)

Sorry about the lack of a picture – this stuff is so good that I couldn’t take a picture before it was all gone. :D

Jetzt neu mit Deutscher Version am Seitenende. Continue reading

Once upon a time, I stumbled upon this great site full of adorable and gorgeous bead patterns, called Thread A Bead.

I believe I had done an Internet search for beaded Christmas presents or tree decorations – but I can’t be sure what I had been looking for because everything went haywire when I happened upon yonder site and the sheer cornucopia of  ideas (and instructions) for Christmas presents! Within (what feels like) seconds, I had bought four of their patterns and was ready to give myself over to absolute beading frenzy.

Let’s take a look at the presents of Christmas past that resulted from said frenzy. Continue reading
