Stitching is coming along

Inspiration is coming out my ears this month it seems. I have been making up some kits for a couple of friends to make a beaded angel and also thinking about some new patterns for christmas decorations.
My mum and I usually make about 20 of a pattern before I teach it to anyone so I have to make up some new ones for next year. this year i will be teaching a set of three decorations called "Neptunes Waves" using a combination of a honeycomb net and russian braid. Neptune because I was at the beach when I was fiddling with the pattern. I really love the russian braid and find it a great way to cover a shape, especially an egg or oblong but sometimes the joining of the ends is always fun.
