Back to beading

Well, it's probably just as well we had a couple of weeks away from the bead shop as I'm right back in there buying more beads following our Saturday morning sesh today! Having just bought Beaded Allure, I thought I should stock up a little on some size 15 seed beads so have got myself 3 new tubes - hopefully they'll keep me occupied for a while!

In the meantime, one of my Christmas stocking fillers that didn't get here in time has showed up - it's a mix of 100 4mm Swarovski bicones - BIG GRINS! I was so chuffed when Jim gave them to me, they're so pretty I'm sure I'll just stare at them for a while. I just wish I could do all of my work in Swaro's, if only I had the money to.

I don't know if any of you have Twitter - I've had it for a while but didn't really 'get' it to start with. Recently, I've been spending a bit more time on there, sharing my 'tweets' and starting to find crafty/beady type folk to follow - if you are on there, do come and find me, I'm @littletreats

So who wants to see what we made this morning at our Saturday morning session? Admittedly, unlike my friend Sandra, I didn't finish it in the two hours we were there because myself and two of my other friends were too busy not concentrating, talking, and just generally messing around. If you're interested to know though, it can be done in around 1 hour 45 minutes, possibly quicker once you get going! I have a few ideas for future renditions of this piece, but if you're after the pattern it's in The Beaders Handbook 2! Russian Eyelets is the name of the pattern. I can highly recommend the magazine/book, though it does have a few bead crochet patterns which are unlikely to ever be looked at by me!

Sorry for the dark bits, I keep playing with my new scanner and am using it to scan anything and everything! I'll master the perfect jewellery scan some day...
