    Hi, the people on this site have been very helpful to me because they have introduced me to some really great websites that I might never have discovered.  Not only do they answer questions but show me where I can find the answers myself.  I'm sure you will learn and enjoy it here.

        well it doesn`t look bad at all the fabric that I used was very nice to work with and it went together very well  it took me the whole day thats not right my husband spranged his ankle and he thinks I have to be at his side and fluff his pillow or get his ice pack .,and try to get other things done that is just not happening so it  took a little time  I use this as an escape from house work  just to here from you all

    hey guyz,

    i was wondering if anyone of u know of a good site for embellishment......not teh usual thread work but something a little more experimental.


    1. thehat | | #7

      what kind of enbelasments are you refering to beads and bobbles or lace and ribon  buckles and bows or feathers

      1. sabah | | #8

        actually i was thinkin of something a little more creative.....like washers and metal scraps.....sort of mixed media type......im bored of using the same standard thread and ribbon work for embellsihing.....since i design exclusively for my clients (as in one offs) i prefer to give them something unique everytime......hope ure husband gets well soon....:)

              Sabah HI coins flatten out , how about pottery ,and wire and drill holes in hammered tin ,it only takes a little time and you can get that dimpled  look and shape it any way that looks good to you and then you might try animal teeth or wood  but when you are drilling make sure they are you drill straight down you then you could crochet it in your project or weave it in  it was just a thought   Merry Christmas - happy N ew Y ear
