It was just one of "those" weeks as far as work was concerned! The absolutely hideous weather didn't help much either I might add.
As you may know I've been playing with beads of a night after dinner and trying to teach myself a few new things.
This bracelet got finished last night while I was sort of watching the footy.
I struggled big time with the weave that makes up the base of this and then, with a lot of help from some Facebook friends and a lot of ripping out and swearing ~ all of a sudden it just clicked. I was one happy little vegemite!!!
175 Swarovski crystals later and some very tiny seed beads it was done.
I did have some absolutely fantastic news though ~ I entered a blog competition by Karen from Skunk Hill Studio. The first prize was this brilliant book she has written on freeform beading and a kit to make one of her awesome bracelets. YAY!!! Doing the happy dance ~ yes I won it and my kit is on it's way across the big pond as we speak. More fun to be had!!!! :^) :^)
OK ~ back to making dinner for me ~ have a fantabulous week everyone!!!! CYA.......
