Zig-Zag Bead Bracelet with Swarovsky Crystals

Zigzag Peyote Stitch Bracelet with Swarovski Crystals

A fun way of creating some zigzag into your daily jewellery.  I have made it with a few beads added on. It will be wider than the pattern ask for to add on some lengths for a more dramatic bigger look it will then also fit wider writs.  At the same time string on less beads and the same Bracelet will become less wide and shorter for a smaller writs.  The Zigzag will work out to a finished look for you to add on the clasp.  This pattern is available at “That Bead Lady”.

Parasitoid Wasp

Parasitoid Wasp

This Wasp decided to take a rest on our house wall this summer.  What a site that was, no idea what this insect was.  Will it sting us with his big long tail?  Get the camera quickly…..take a picture and lets find out what it is?!

          Luckily we have a great book that showed exactly that Insect “Parasitoid Wasp”

          From what we read this Wasp is one of the most beneficial species that inhabit our gardens.  The females walk along tree trunks until they sense a vibration of a boring beetle within. Then, with extreme precision, the females acrobatically curl their abdomen, coil their long ovipositor and drive it through the bark and the inner wood, directly into the unsuspecting larva.  After laying an egg, the females pull out their ovipositor and continue hunting.

The weakened caterpillars become a buffet for the hunting wasp larva, which grows and feeds on the non-vital tissues first, saving the organs far last. 

Ribwarmer for your Winter Days or Skiing

This Ribwarmer is a wonderful addition to have for under a Ski jacket or if you are going for a walk in the Forest.   I love to wear it around the home. Great with a light long sleeve t-shirt top or with a blouse.  It keeps my back nice and warm.  It is not as heavy as a sweater that is sometimes too much for wearing in the home.  The pattern can be modified to make it smaller or bigger if needed.

Scarf in White with Gorgeous Knit Ruffles

Scarf in White with Gorgeous Ruffles;

I have come across this pattern at one of the Vogue Knitting Magazines.  I fell in Love with it and purchased this ohhhh…… so nice and soft yarn.

 For the Office Party with and evening gown this will locks stunning.   Perhaps you love Jeans, this will keep you warm and looks great too even if you dress it down.

Lace Knit and Croched Shrug

A wonderful Lace Knit and Crochet Shrug for dressing up to go out on the town.  Looks great with a thin or strap less dress for a Cocktail Party or the coming Christmas Events.  I am sure lots of us are looking now to see what we are going to wear this coming Festive Season.  Again…this could be knit with a nice silk yarn.  It would be possible to add-on some stunning Beads at the Ruffle.

Blue Silk Shrug

Wonderful for around the house.  Love to wear it over a nice light top or going out to a Restaurant. Sometimes you  never know if you are sitting under any vents.  I do like to be comfortable and enjoy my company and not have to be cool.  So this shrug is perfect for keeping me warm.  You can close it at the front as much or as little as you like.  It has a nice relaxed feel to it.   Any type of Yarn could be use for this depends on the look you would like.  The pattern then has to be modified to adjust for the needle size and yarn thickness used.   I have use a “Baby Bamboo” Yarn by Sirdar Snuggly.

Sleeping Squirrel on the Fence

Sleeping Squirrel on the Fence

This was so sweet to see.  My Husband and I where just sitting in the backyard, enjoying a nice day, this past Summer in our Backyard.  When I spotted something sitting on the Fence tucked into the bushes.  As I looked closer….to my surprise it was a young Squirrel sleeping.  I grabbed our camera and snuck up to it as close as I could.  Again ….I was amazed that I was able to get to almost one meter to the Fence till the Squirrel got a little nervous.  This cute little Squirrel only then started to move.  I was able to take a lot of pictures and one even with it still sleeping.
