Dvestota / Two hundredth post

                                                  Dokaj realne barve / Quite real colours
Moder filter?/ Blue filter?

Tik pred tretjim rojstnim dnem Mlina se obrača števec. Dober občutek imam, ko že dvestotič  pišem na tem mestu. Ker sem svoj lanski rojstni dan tu prezrla, enako tudi drugi rojstni dan spletnika, se želim oddolžiti sedaj. Odločila sem se, da pogledam, kdo je v preteklem letu komentiral najpogosteje. Medalje ste osvojile Vladuška, Alenka in Hali - oglasim se vam po epošti, da se dogovorimo za nagradice. Čestitam!
 Zahvaljujem se tudi vsem ostalim, ki si vzamete čas, da mi kaj napišete. Vsak vaš komentar je zelo cenjen.
Na temo Beadmania pa še ena zapestnica - Lively links (Marina Nadke)- , ki je krasna za delo in na pogled. Popolnoma pa me je razkurila, ko sem jo slikala. Od 20 posnetkov jih le peščica približno ustreza izvirniku. Vijoličasti toni so res nemogoči - vse skupaj se obarva modrikasto, kot bi vklopila filter.
Lep teden, Kristina

This is my 200th post. I like the feeling, especially because the blog will be 3 years old in a few weeks time. Thanks for visiting and leaving nice comments - I appreciate them a lot.
I've made another bracelet in the Beadmania series (I'm trying as many designs and new techniques as possible from different magazines and books to improve my beading skills.)It is called Lively links by Marina Nadke. I love the technique but the violet tones caused me so much gried when I was trying to make a decent photo. Most of them were tinted blue and were very ugly.
Anyway, have a nice week, Kristina

Zlato srebrna



Edino, kar trenutno ustvarjam, so zapestnice iz perlic. Kjer je osnova pravokotni šiv, sem ponavadi navdušena. Tudi pri tejle, le da mi je precej tesna. Mogoče me prime, da naredim še eno. Ne traja dolgo in ni zapletena - Shelley Nybakke obvlada ta slog.
Lep teden,

Kristina

Beaded bracelets and bangles are still my obsession. I always enjoy right angle weave and its variations. I love this metallic bangle but it is a bit tight. I might bead another one. It doesn't take long and it isn't complicated. Shelley Nybakke is the master of RAW.
Have a nice week,
Kristina

Cik cak / Zig zag scallops



Ko je prispel decemberski Bead and Button sva obe s prijateljico Tatjano padli dol ob tejle ogrlici. Tatjana je nato zgovorno namignila, da ima rojstni dan prav kmalu in uspela sem si zapomniti. Nato pa se je vrinil delovni tempo in sto obveznosti in nenadoma sem začela pričakovati novo številko revije, ki naj bi prišla. Tatjana pa je popolnoma pozabila, kakšno ogrlico si je izbrala in mi sredi decembra ni znala odgovoriti, če želja še velja. Tik pred počitnicami sem se hotela prepričati, če imam vse potrebno in sem prelistala vse izvode B&B, ki jih imam, le da ogrlice nisem našla. Konec koncev sem pozabljeni decemberski izvod odkrila na pokrovu škatle za perlanje, kamor se je točno prilegel. Po vsem tem mi je ogrlica lepo uspela in tehnika je odlična - enostavna in hitra, rezultat pa všečen. Metalne perle dveh odtenkov se podajo k vzorcu.

Zig zag scallops was the best project in December Bead & Button magazine and both me and my best friend Tatjana loved it when we saw it. She chose it as her birthday present and forgot about it. She couldn't recall it even vaguely when I mentioned it in December. When I started to look for the issue to check the materials just before Christmas I couldn't find it. At the same time I was still looking forward to getting the December issue. After much searching I found the magazine on my beading box where it fitted perfectly and wasn't visible when I walked past the shelf. After all the drama I made the zig zag, loved stitching it - it goes so fast, it's easy but it looks stunning. Metal seed beads are just perfect for the pattern.
Happy Sunday.

Lepo nedeljo,
Kristina

Prva v 2012

Ogrlica, da imam komplet/ Matching necklace

Zapestnica, seveda, ki bi jo boljše poimenovala zavora 3. Navodila iz Bead & Buttona iz 2003 se mi zdijo zmedena in kar naprej se mi nekaj ni izšlo. Vesela pa sem, da sem jo v novoletnem zagonu končala in mi ni obležala za par mesecev.
Velikih novoletnih zaobljub nimam, le veliko želja. In če še malo pogledam "račune", sem žalostna, da sem v letu 11 prebrala 30 knjig manj kot v letu 10. Da ne govorim o tem, da sem iz polija naredila borih osem izdelkov. Tu res potrebujem nov začetek in svežo voljo.
Prijeten prvi konec tedna v novem letu,
Kristina

My first 2012 beaded bracelet. I found the instructions from a 2003 Bead & Button issue quite confusing and made lots of mistakes while stitching. But I carried on and I am very happy that I didn't just leave it half finished.
I haven't got any real new year's resolutions, I would just like to do many different things. I am sad that in 2011 I read 30 books less than in 2010. During the whole last year I also made only 8 polymer clay pieces.
Time for new beginnings.
Have a nice weekend,
Kristina

Srečno 2012

Leta, ki je minilo, ne bom nič pogrešala, saj v celoti gledano ni bilo prav dobro. Zato z veseljem in upanjem vstopam v novo leto in vam želim vse dobro, čimveč lučk lepih dogodkov vsak dan.

Hvala, da ste brali in komentirali ta dnevnik v 2011. Moja prva želja pa je, da bi v novem letu našla pot nazaj do prve ljubezni - poli gline.

Happy new year! Bonne annee!

Lep zadnji praznični dan,
Kristina
