Time, she is a flying... Here are some finished objects from January and February.

Mini twined woven baskets using waxed cord and embroidery thread.  The orange and yellow one I made into a flower amulet.  there is a plastic tube so you can put a real flower in it.

And two tatted necklaces.   These are two designs I've been thinking about for while.  The green necklace came about while seeing what I can do with just one shuttle.  I like the mossy look.

 The white necklace was more to do with the chain.  I really wanted to use split rings in an elegant way, something that looked more like pearls.  The green bead added some punch and little weight.  Both necklaces are metal free which I've been thinking about as well.  Like peanut allergies, there are also a lot of people allergic to metals.
