Another little walk to Hobbycraft this week because i needed the 2 mile each way walk to keep the weight down. Well that's my excuse anyway .I bought some blue acrylic square beads and some glass ones to match. I already had some blue and cream pearls so i made this little set.

I've finally managed to get around to playing with my new Hobbycaft beads. I've been busy working on papercraft stuff for my christmas stocking fillers.

I had a little trip to Hobbycraft the other day. and bought some beads and toggles.I can't believe how expensive this stuff has become. I used to make jewellery about 6 years ago when we had " The Bead Shop" of Manchester fame here in Chester. It closed down and my heart turned towards paper and card.

I've been to Hobbycraft and bought a few beads, and do you know what i did? In my excitement i tipped them into little pots and threw away the packaging, so i can't tell you what make they are. I won't be so hasty in future.

It took me far too long to make this bracelet. Partly because i had a few drinkies last night and was a bit shaky and partly because i had to restart it a couple of times to get it the right length.

Welcome to my new bead blog. I'm a stringer type, you know, like we were taught in school before we could read and write. Nothing complicated, just one bead, then another bead...............I need to make christmas pressies, plus i need to rip apart some of my old stuff. Proffesional beaders won't be impressed. I don't mind that,thanks for looking anyway. This is for those of us who are still in infant school with a few beads and a bit of string.
