~ Beads, Beading & Beaded ~

I did it ~ I managed to put some beads in this weekend! Being so very far away from the world's vintage supply of micro seed beads and factoring in how costly freighting even small packets around gets and with the exchange rate and all ~ I am utilising what I have managed to gather ~ now it's not always my perfectly desired effect but I am LOVING my efforts all the same ~ the castle now has a plum tree in the grounds ~ yum yum yummy! ~ 

~ The leaves would have looked a little different in
more translucent beads but you get the
picture ~ 

~ She's coming along nicely ~ just some grass to
bead under that ole plum tree now ~

~ Happy beading wherever you are and with whatever you are working on ~

Now What Shall I Do This Wet Weekend

It just never seems to stop raining or just being grey and yucky. Darn, I'll have to stay inside again ~ now what shall I do? 

Sleep?!? ~ no way ~ that's Louis' choice and he was getting right into it as you can clearly see! Some helper he was fast asleep on the possum skin rug!!

I decided instead to tackle a little prep ~ that first up task that just seems to take an absolute age ~ especially when you prep a trio ~ so long and short was I got two patterns drawn up on the trusty old freezer paper & one kit nearly sorted ~

~ First up a Tilda Santa ~ this christmas or next?! ~

~ Next up a little bit of a 2016 BOM ~
 that I am not able to give much away on!! ~

~ Then there's sorting out the kit for the 'Foxley Village'
2016 BOM in the Homespun magazine ~ 

~ It's soooo adorable and a fair bit of work to boot ~
Just when I was starting to run out of weekend at the tail end and just 30 minutes before I had to go prep dinner I decided to stitch some beads ~ just a few so I could say I had ~ of course this frame is setup ready to go and I walk past it all the time between studio and the rest of the house ~ and look i've progressed ~ 3/4 of a tree!! ~ woo hoo!

~ Very happy I managed to squeeze this in
as the beads are FUN ~

~ Just look at that tree grow ~

Hope you guys have a great week. I resigned last week from my boring and tediously repetitive job and am on the way to no longer working with the awful new boss of a month or so ~ roll on the 26th October ~ I wonder what I will do next!!!
