Ziad's Birthday Present

I am republishing this blog as it was previously blocked.  Something wrong with my mask? ???? The mask is bead loomed after a design by Margie Deeb

Birthday Presents

I managed to complete a couple of birthday presents. The horned seed bead bracelet was inspired by Kate McKinnan's book. The throw is a combination of knitting and tunisian crochet with a crocheted heart motif

I'm Back! !

As I don't really know what to do to update the website I have decided to go back to my blog and try again. I still don't know what happened to some of my blogs and why they were blocked but I will try again. I was not able to restore the blocked blogs!!!

Homemade beading loom

Large beading looms are either expensive /unavailable here.  Get a sturdy shoebox add a base (in this loom I used a shelf covered in material) large bolts for threading and screws to wind the thread securely. Two sticks to keep the shape sturdy and wire or strong string to hold it all together!!
