What I've been up to

Dear fellow bloggers
I haven't disappeared. I've had a hectic few weeks and haven't posted. Also I've been sidetracked from my beloved sewing by a project I am undertaking of making all the girls in my extended family beaded bracelets or necklaces for Christmas. I saw some lovely pieces online made from semi-precious stones and went on to buy a box of supplies from fire mountain gems. Oh dear bloggers/sewers/craftists this site should come with a warning that it is too wonderful for words. I'm sure there are other beading supply websites but this one is delicious.
While I was waiting for my box of goodies to arrive I started practising with what I already had and came up with these

Chunky hippy style bracelets
and a delicate ncklace and bracelet

Made from an old black necklace and some inexpensive seed beads.
So that's what I'm doing. Some sewing will soon follow.
Happy blogging everyone.
