Some Finished Holiday Projects!

I've been doing PlanetJune's Poinsettias tutorials http://www.planetjune.com/blog/beaded-poinsettia/ and have been having a lot of fun trying some new crafts!  Just thought I'd share these!  They are all about 2" in diameter or so.   I'm adding brooch backs to all of them so they can be worn as pins.

Beaded Poinsettia in Progress!


I thought I’d share this work-in-progress photo with you! This is the beaded poinsettia I've been working on from June’s recent tutorial:http://www.planetjune.com/blog/tutorials/beaded-poinsetti...
I'm almost finished with it! June, thank you for the hours you put in to presenting this tutorial. I really appreciate it! I’m a total newbie to beading.

I’ve been taking a break from crocheting to let my poor arms/hands heal-I’ve been a crochet animal and have been over-doing it!! Rowr!! For those of you wanting to win this year’s PlanetJune Christmas CAL, this is good news for you-I won last Christmas and did all but one pattern available. If I were feeling better, I’d be kicking CAL butt!! ;-)
