New and Old projects

So here is a little decorated Christmas tree I had been contemplating and just so you know making the tinsel was a pain. It’s kinda dorky and makes me think of sticking it on a head band and wearing it as a super dorky Christmas hat. the intention had been to go back to work on another Christmas project after this but the stars I had already done have gone missing for the moment so its back to the Fibonacci project. And I’ve misplaced a pattern for another Christmas project so that’s fun.

I couldn’t help but test out these new beads, what a difference they make. They might not be my fave beads by any strech of the imagination but they are still fun to play with, given their size. So expect to see a few projects made with them here and there, if only for an amusing comparison to my other projects. Given the lenght vs. width ratio compared to the smaller beads there are a few things I can’t do with them, like making a flat pentagon (I did try). Still they will come in handy, its just a shame that they are plastic of all things. So another reason not to use them alot.

Millie moo, has been inserting herself into the beading process as being a cat she is of course all that matters in life and nothing else should ever get in the way of that. Pats and scratches are of the upmost importance and come before all else. We don’t always see eye to eye on this point but we make it work except for the few occasions she decided my thread was a play toy and had to be escorted out of the room. Cats sulking is rather funny though I did feel bad and give her extra pats

And the peg board is up and in use, though I need some more pegs. The vibrant strip earrings are what I was trying to teach my friend beading on. Well its I should be getting ready for work soon so I’ll be off.
