Hey I want to spend a bit of time talking about the wonderful Seed Beads and more group on Facebook. its a fantastic little group that often hosts beadlongs and last month was hosted by the amazing designer Julia s. Pretl. For various reasons I don’t always participate in the bead along but I think that they are simply fantastic. if you are not apart of the group or missed out on last months bead along you can buy the pattern from Julia’s website and you can find a link on my resources page. I highly recommend buying her book on boxes if you are a beader as it is super helpful.
For some reason my box has come out looking a tad rumbled, possible due to not enough tention but it is still super cute. I haven’t put any legs on either as I don’t have many large beads so have chosen to skip that part for the moment.
Usually Thursday’s are spent with dad but I was asked if I would like to do an ‘art’ object /photo speed dating event with my cousin and aunt and decided to go along. it was a cool experience and we even got a small gift of appreciation from the high school students which Millie has claimed the packaging of. And I will make good use of the note book and pen. You can also see on of my socks under her but that she has also claimed as one of her toys. She is a very cheap cat.
For those interested I picked Cubezillar as my object which a few of the teens thought was impressive when I explained that I made it myself with tiny glass beads. And the photo was from my 2017 trip and is of one of my fave places. They had several questions to ask and there were 12 students all up with six people to question one being my cousin with her toy wombat, next to me and on my other side my aunt with her army cadets hat. Another lady had a bracelet that meant a lot to her and the lady across from us had a pottery jug ( she was also wearing a stunning necklace) and the last lady had a harp which was cool. We also got a free tea or coffee which was neat.
Other than that I ended up being super busy yesterday as I had an interview for a new job, then training to do so that I could do my trial tonight, then also a catch up with mum so it was about four before i really had much time at home and after a nap we were off again to Bings for a delish meal for a combined birthday meal for my cousin Kea and her mum.
This afternoon there has been a fair bit of rain from the cyclone in the coral sea but it is forecasted to head towards Fiji but we are expected to get a fair bit of rain for the next two days.
Tomorrow I will be making a start on the tree topper, having done up a few patterns to try I will hopefully have them done by the end of the weekend and then it will just be the stars with initials to do I’m excited to be coming close to the end of this project and have several more projects lined up to do.
wish me luck Lou.
