Hi peeps! Sorry ... missing in action again.
Been addicted to bead crocheting lately.
A recently completed bead crochet rope bangle/bracelet in black/grey/white combination. This rope is 0.6mm in thickness and suitable for someone with slim or small wrist.
Thinking of doing a long necklace in the same design.
Pattern found on Pinterest, so credit goes back to the original author of this pattern.
Thanks for looking!

Just sharing the type of thread I use to crochet my beaded rope necklace or bracelet. It's 100% cotton thread and comes with many colour choice. Couldn't find this type of thread anywhere in my hometown shops but I finally found it from an online vendor selling DMC products. I use crochet needle 1.00mm to go with it.
Made a trip all the way to the shop in another state to get the thread and I am finally satisfied.
Thanks for reading!
Have a nice week ahead!

I completed this bag last year as a gift to someone. 1st time learning this bobble stitch and I used up 6 rolls of yarn. The short handles were also crocheted (with plastic tube inserted to make the handles durable) and then sewn to the bag.
No zip closure but with button on clasp.
Below is another bag I did earlier this year, also as a gift.
With zip closure
Cheers ! ❤
Happy weekend, everyone!

Another weekend is here and gonna be over soon after tomorrow. Haiz! How I wish there would be more than 24 hours in a day.
Well anyway ..... here is my work in progress for the moment. Picking up bead crochet again after stopping for quite awhile. Was destashing some stuff when I found my seed beads and cotton threads. Asked myself why don't I start bead crochet again since I have all the materials. So, I ended up crocheting this pattern after browsing on Pinterest.
Not sure yet whether to turn it into a bracelet, choker or long necklace. Its an 8 around with size 11 Miyuki seed beads. I will update with a photo when it is completed.
Thank you for reading.
Till then, have a wonderful and productive weekend peeps!

This carrot cake was from last week's baking session. My first time baking with this recipe. I like the texture of this cake, loaded with finely grated australian carrots and walnuts. No butter used, just corn/vegetable oil.
The top, middle and sides applied with cream cheese frosting, then garnished with some grated carrot and chopped roasted walnuts.
I gave this 🍰 a 👍and will definitely use this recipe again.
Above is today's lunch which is a Malay/Indian dish.
Tomato rice (long grain or basmathi rice) with Spicy Tomato Chicken and Pickled Vegs.
Have a wonderful day!

I was in my early 20's when I first learned to crochet beaded ropes. It was taught to me hands-on by my then office colleague. However, I got distracted iver the years with my job and marriage and forgotten about it until a few years ago when I started beading again.
Sharing some photos of the beaded ropes. All these were done some time ago (3 to 4 years ago)
This one is so colourful. Found the pattern on Pinterest. I made it into colourful sections but the main character is still the black/white cat. It's a very long necklace that you can also wear it as a multi strand bracelet on your wrist.

Thinking of pursuing this hobby again since I have some leftover seed beads. How I wish there would be more than 24 hours in a day.
