Floral Bead Bender
I was going great guns last week, making lots of florals, round ones, long ones, ones with cz, ones with butterflies, red ones, blue ones, tropical ones, I was on a floral bead bender and I liked it!.. Then I got a cold... not a can't get out of bed cold but more miserable,out of sorts cold... snotty with a temperature and sore throat on top kind of a cold. By and large it is not a good idea to go and mess with molten glass and fire if you are not up to snuff but I gave it a go anyway, I really shouldn't have bothered, what a waste of glass.
What I needed was a nice bowl of home made soup so I set to with peeling and chopping. I managed to miss the broccoli and nearly took my thumb off, this was the point I decided take a message from the universe and give it up. Gloriously a cold and defective thumb don't appear to have interfered with my ability to a. crochet b.drink tea. c. eat biscuits or d. watch tv so I have been multi taking and doing all four at once and you know what? I liked that too!
This week I have a nice selection of focal beads heading for my LampworkJewels shop Thursday 27.11 at 8pm GMT.
