Well my latest order has been finished and just needs to be dropped off this afternoon or tomorrow. I know i have spent some time talking about it and have unfortunately had so much to do that I failed to post anything for the last two weeks. But now with my mum’s birthday party, the days for girl’s charity cent sale and other things been and gone I can get back to posting again. I have also changed jobs in the last few weeks and this will hopefully also help with my schedule to allow more frequent posting than I have been managing of late.
I have spent the better part of today making parts for shapes in my shapes series. Having found that the work goes quicker if I make the parts and then put them together once that is done. Hopefully I will be able to make an Icosidodecahedron, Rhombicosidodecahedron, Snub Dodecahedron, Cuboctahedron and a mixed cluster that I know not the name of with the beads I currently have. At any rate. I think I shall at least manage three of them if not all and who knows I might manage a few more if luck allows.
I have also been adding to my mini star collection with tri coloured stars and hope to have a good number of them by the end of the year, its quite possible that I’ll store them in a jar when I have a decent amount of them and have a giveaway with the prize going to whoever guesses the closest amount to the number of stars in the jar. I have done this once before with a smaller jar and number of stars. I have also been working on pairs of earrings which I shall post up in the next few days on my facebook page.
Other than that I finished my little bee box designed by Julia S. Pretl, although I’ve not put legs on it having no larger beads for the task. It looks a little rumpled as I did not keep my tension well but it is cute none the less. Also the neck of the box is a bit too high so the lid dose not sit flush. But as it is just for my personal collection I don’t mind so much. Well I had better get cracking on my bead work so that I will have something to report on Friday.
All the best Louise.
