Dasterdly bracelet and knitting in focus

Hi there,

Time for another blog post. This could take a while as for some reason my fingers keep wanting to type A in place of E!!! grrrr. However I have a couple of things to share - not least of which is some more woolly critters:

 Snake
 Fallen butterfly
 Bird
 Somebody stole his stuffing!!! It was all over the path and half dragged through the shrubbery too.

 Bumblebee - slightly plucked
 Snake
 Grasshopper
 Mouse
Slug

I also got my first Patty Pan squashes off the plant - we tried to stuff them but overcooked them slightly so they fell apart - so we made a bake with them instead lol.
Anyway, I wanted to share my bracelet with you today.

So I made this with little flower beads, which i threaded split rings through, with two seed beads placed to either side. I joined these together with a split pin threaded with seed beads, nd finished with a toggle clasp. It was sooo fidlly to get the split rings into the flower beads, due to the petals, and so I ended up pulling them apart rather than twisting, just to get them through the bead centre!

However, here it is all completed. I would like to enter it into the following challenges:

I also have knitting as the technique in focus at the Crafting Techniques group, and here is my WIP so far:
What do you think it is going to be?

Stay tuned for some cross-stitching updates, and more woolly critters too!!

Thank you for looking,
