Happy wednesday to all you lovely WOYWW peeps!
Dont know what it's all about? checkout the nosey-est bog hop of the week with Julia Dunnit over at the stamping ground.
Anyway my desk this week is full of beading 'stuff'.
I love to bead but just lately I haven't done very much, other crafts seem to have taken over.
Time to change that so I thought I would have a bit of a sort out and tidy up my storage.
I have grandma duties on Tuesdays so while Erin had her morning nap I started with the findings, which I keep in the plastic boxes at the back.
On the right hand side is a box of bead 'sortings' waiting to go back in the right colour box.
On the left under the blue sheet are some of the hearts that I started last week, but these are under wraps at the moment (you never know who's reading do you!).
This re-newed interest in beading came about because I actually finished something last week.
This necklace is made from squares of brick stitch and peyote stitch sewn together with the occasioal feature bead for embellishment. It turned out ok in the end.
I also went on a workshop last week at Stitch n craft and made a fabulous tassel.
I haven't finished it yet so you will have to pop back next week to see it (if it is finished that is LOL) Must stop tidying . . . and just DO it! I think I started this necklace in October last year, must make some earrings to match . . might get them done by next October.
Lastly a BIG thankyou to Ann B for the fab blog candy I won from her last week. Great stuff eh!
Well, I've shown you mine, time to look at yours now, I am on a/leave for a couple of days so maybe I will get to nosey at a few more this week. I also have my book do alter for this weeks class with Elizabeth altered book lover.lesson-3
see ya I would love to visit you back but please leave your Mr LInky number as this really speeds things up Ta
