Jewellery in crochet
Recently I've been working on some crocheted jewellery and am enjoying it so much:) I'm also enjoying wearing these and the best part is when people actually want to know where you can get them.

There are more to show but haven't taken the pictures yet to upload. time flies when you are busy with crochet as well as quilling....

Paper Quilling ATC

In the last post you saw all the lovely cards I got from my friends. And now here are the cards I sent :)They are simple cards and I had such fun making them. When you think of cards , the general idea is the usual standard size or maybe sometimes the differently shaped ones. But one thing that never comes to mind is 'tiny cards'! And that was the challenge with these.The cards are all 2"x3" in size. It was difficult at first to find ideas to fit into such a small surface ...but then once I started working on it ,the ideas began to flow.
