Sometimes, you just need something quick & easy....



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.

Blessings,
Beth
