Just a quick post from me today as hubby and I are getting ready to go and collect my daughter and her belongings from university. She had her last exam yesterday and is now ready to come home. Now we have the agonising wait to find out what her results are. We are so proud of her and this four years has really flown by.
Anyway, I have been looking for some time for something crafty that I could do while sitting with hubby in the evenings. I am not really a television person and can't just sit there watching it. I get bored very easily. I was at my local craft shop a couple of weeks ago and came across Kumihimo braiding. It looked interesting and so I bought a few bits. I am now hooked and here are some of my bracelets I have done.
These bracelets have been done using a round Kumihimo disc and rattail cord. I have finished them off with end caps.
These have had beads added. I must admit I love the beaded ones and they are relatively quick to do.
Now I am very much a beginner so if anyone out there has any hints and tips, patterns or books they can recommend I would be grateful. Also, good suppliers of cord and beads too.
Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think. Just leave me a comment.
Right, got to go now and finish getting ready. Should be back this evening so will have a catch up with your blogs later.
