TMTA and a new craft

This week's theme at TMTA is weeds and herbs so I used these wonderful hotpicks stamps from PaperArtsy again, The quote "May all your weeds be wildflowers" was done on the computer.

I have also been having a play with Lucetting, I didn't use a real lucet, so I used this pom pom maker I have had for ages, it's basically the same thing.

(I do have a little lucet somewhere that was a gift, but I can't remember where I put it.)
I used the instructions from this youtube video
I started with simple cord,

then I tried it triple thickness

then I tried two different textures

and two different colours

and gold thread

and finally ribbon yarn.

it's a really addictive craft and the cords are so quick to make, however other than friendship bracelets I don't really have any ideas what to do with them. I need to try incorporating beads next.


  1. The bracelet sounds a fab idea. Look forward to seeing what you create with these. Annette x

  2. what a wonderful atc! love the quote!

  3. Fascinating! Gonna have to have a go at that.

  4. Lovely ATC and maybe you can use some of your cords on your ATCs.

  5. great wildflower - great quote - and of course a winderful ATC!

  6. never knew what a lucette was. did i even spell it right? my mind just went blank. cool. cool project. you're amazing. :)
