Ah think Ah'm in Luv




Turkish Crochet- what's not to love? portable, easy to add beaded toggle/loop combo, no spilling beads, fast, colorful, versatility as to bead choices/sizes....did I mention FAST!
Gotta love it.
if you try to teach yourself from the instructions in the Dec 09 Bead and Button Mag, try putting the beads you slide up on the OTHER side of the hook, not in front as shown in the photo- they will slide up completely and keep you from having alot of thread showing, plus be easier to hook and lock down with your next slip stitch- THANKS, Ingrid!
As always, click on the pics to make them full size.

Each one is beautiful and has its own personality. I really like how you finished them. I can't wait to see the basic directions. I'm going to try the trick of behind, not in front of the hook.
