Last week I was so busy and I ended up a little cranky as I didn’t get to do as much work as I had wanted to. To be honest that came down to my choices and what I prioritised. This week while still having a lot going on is slower and I will be beading more.
So on the news front, I did a small virtual tour of my studio which you can find on my Facebook page (Delicate By Lou). It won’t win any prizes but you get a good look at my working space.
I also set up a Buy Me a Coffee page so now anyone excited about my projects and pitch in a few dollars if they want to help make the magic happen. I’ve put links up on my profiles and will leave it at that.
If you watch the video tour and wonder if 13 actually sits in the chair, the answer is yes. She has also taken over the spare bed, the lounge chair, Andy’s spot on Joan’s bed, and most of my bed, just because she can. Cats.
Ziggy will also hang out in my studio. And Andy runs away every time he spots me, mostly he is just a blur of fur darting about at night.
I have a meeting this week as well and will hopefully be able to update you on it later, depending on how it goes.
My current work in progress is going well, I found two more small stashes of the orange beads I was using so I could finish the second layer without having to wait to order beads. It was fantastic and so I now have only part of the outer layer togo. Just nine more squares and six hexagons to put in. I’m happy with how it is turning out but I think next time I will go back to a more minimal colour palette that suits my style more. This one is cool and all but it’s not really me, though I do like how every bowl has a different colour.
The bead soup on the outside is also interesting and I do have a few ideas for a different colour mix of bead soup for in the future on at least one other project, so even though it won’t be a main feature of my work it will still make appearances. Hopefully to best effect. I will have to get more beads before starting my next large shape so that I can pick a colour scheme and not have to worry about running out of beads. Hum I think that is it for now as I really just want to get back to beading before I head off to work.
