As much as I love to do the complicated things, to push the limits, to be innovative and creative; there are times when I just need to do something simple.
There are times when I just need to get in there, work on the project and complete it in a short period of time. Sometimes I just need the feeling of accomplishment that a finished project brings.
Other times, I need a quick gift for a friend. I love to make hand-made items to give to family and friends to celebrate special occasions, but I must admit that sometimes I am pressed for time and just need something that will work up quickly.
Oh, and did I mention that it is a bonus when the piece really looks good??? Here is an example of my latest quick & easy piece which I think has some great impact.
Wolf Tracks Earring
These earrings are done in a simple brick stitch design with a simple fringe pattern. They work up very quickly and easily.
But, I must confess, these are a gift that I am giving to myself. I can't bear to part with this pair. I think it goes so well with my matching cuff, business card holder, and lighter cover, and bangle. This one is going in my jewelry box. But I will be posting the pattern soon.
And if you are looking for some other "quick & easy" projects, may I suggest:
So, if you are looking for something quick & easy, or just need a quick gift for a friend, I hope you will check out these patterns and experience the satisfaction of a job well done that I am feeling right now.
