My lounge room has been taken over by boxes of bead trays and I’m not feeling much inclined to put them away again any time soon so I might even make more stuff in the next few days. I’m rather … Continue reading Finally! I made something!
Today I stood here at my very own, doesn’t have to be cleared up for anything or anyone else, new workbench in the garage. I got out some of these: Turned on this: And made some glass beads for the first time in almost a year. It took me 90 minutes to make just 4 beads and my technique is rusty at best. But now that I have a permanent work space I’m hoping to start turning out more pretties on a regular basis and also to get on with making some reproductions of period beads for our reenacting.

Many moons ago, back in March to be precise, I participated in a blogging meme titled Want a gift from me? I was supposed to deliver those gifts within a month of posting the offer.

I’m having that “it’s never-ending!” feeling about life just at present. I rather suspect that when I stop I’m going to crash, Monday may be a bit of a write-off. Yesterday at 7am, after going to bed at 4am (I was working, laptop disaster & database problems legacy), I kicked Adam out of bed to get the kids off to school and went back to sleep. Adam woke me at ten to nine and I hauled myself out of bed, my beading kit out to the car and me, car and kit down to Ariane‘s for a craft day. I … Continue reading But wait! There’s more…
