Bead Magazine

I have finally taken the plunge and I am trying a seed bead design from Bead magazine! Here's my work in progress:

I've had alot of encouragement from the girls at BeadBuddies and it's pushed me to try something new. I'm happy doing peyote stitch, but this has given me chance to see how using different sized beads can give different finishes. 

I've been saying it for weeks now, but I absolutely have to make a decision on my bridesmaid's gifts, and whether I am actually going to make them or not... Any ideas anyone? They're wearing purple :) 

Happy crafting!

Oh how time flies

I can barely believe how fast time's going by at the moment. I can happily say that I HAVE been beading this week though :) I'm half way to finishing my spring lariat, and I completed a St Petersburg necklace, which you can see on the left!

We went round to celebrate my little cousin's first birthday today, it doesn't seem like 2 months ago that she was born! Now it's less than 5 weeks to my wedding and I'm starting to worry that I've forgotten things!

Even when I'm not beading, I try to keep up with the latest on BeadBuddies and everyone's blogs, I barely seem to get 10 minutes to myself at the moment, but it's not long until I get to breathe a sigh of relief and reap the benefits of my hard work :)

In other news, thanks to Sooz on the BB forum, I'm now starting to attempt beaded beads! Watch this space... :P

Happy crafting!
