Hey Its been a little while as I’ve been working on Christmas orders; almost finished the current lot and will hopefully have more red beads this week. I’ve also been catching up with family and friends. And then I had some tech difficulties in trying to post but have it sorted now and am writing this post first thing as I drink my first coffee of the day.
So next year I am going to try being more consistent with my posting and to help with this I might do posts about past projects that I haven’t shared on here, and
post about the history of beading, stitches and whatnot.
Dad came into town to drop in mangos for mum so she can make mango chutney and ended up helping aunty Toni get rid of the weeds. The big bush next to dad is Rosemary which managed to survive. Kea and I also help a bit.
Mum, Joan, Kea and I went to a charity paint and sip to raise money for Our Superhero Boys and hosted by Michelle mdv a local artist. I got into more than I thought I would and got frustrated by my lack of skills, its been so long since I have painted. And as much as I’d like to take it up now I don’t want to fork over the money to get the paints and everything I’d need. Oh well maybe later next year. I did mine with a pink background then figured it would have looked better with a yellow background so I spend a few hours redoing it on the ipad.
I’ve signed up for two mystery beadalongs for next week, so we shall see how they go and I’ll be continuing to make a set for my own tree and display, as well as continuing to make example baubles and stars. Um other than that I went to a high tea/b’day party on the weekend and days for girls. Oh and work of course. I’ll try to post again later this week. Got to go dad has turned up, bye.
