I finished my crochet project. It's a little flower pony from a design by Heidi Bears.
The pony came out so nicely, I felt confident about starting new project. I picked up the tatting shuttles and started a bracelet. After spending too much time trying to find the right thread and beads, this is the mess I made of things.
Looks like I'll have to do a bit of relearning before I can tat successfully again.
