crazy dragonfly

today I am putting a picture of a dragonfly on which I did from a tutorial Christina had done.For a first attempt I am happy with it, think I will do a couple more, maybe try to do them very small and put them onto a piece of CQ



Last tuesday I checked out Leeds market, they have a stall that sells bits of this and that and I found last week that it was closing down. Managed to buy 14 pieces of jewellery for £4.50 which I have taken to pieces and will hopefully be able to use them on some CQ in the near future. The seller said he would see if he had any lace in the warehouse and if so bring it this week so tomorrow I will be paying him another visit and hope to find more goodies.

Beautiful dragonfly!It's sad if someone is closing down their business,but it's good that you've managed to buy good stuff for your CQ.

Brilliant, just what I would do ;0) the amazing thing, sometimes some bits of beads or jewellery you dont see for sale, so finding them in a bracelet or necklace at a bargain price is a definete bonus
