Firstly, apologies there was no recipe post last week; I was a bit under the weather with a heavy head cold and really couldn’t summon up the energy to photograph and write down a recipe. Well on the way to recover now though, so normal service will be resumed this week.
Now onto the subject of this post – beads! I’ve beaded for quite a few years now and it’s a hobby I really enjoy (unless I’m three quarters of the way through a long project!). The last year however, it’s take a bit of a back seat. I’ve dug my beads out, looked at them, then put them away again. Basically, I’ve been suffering from the scourge of crafters everywhere – lost mojo. I think Mr Mojo is slowing and surely returning, thanks in past to some lovely beads purchased from a good friend of mine, Linda Mabbott at Inside the Fire (more about these in a later post).
So, I thought I’d show you what’s on my bead board this week. It’s been a bit of a work in progress, started about a year ago and sadly neglected, partly because I can’t decide whether to make a long necklace, short necklace with dangles, or a lariat. I love this colour combo, and I’m very proud of the big beaded bead. The lampwork bead came from my stash via a friend’s destash.

I’m hoping to have it finished within the next week or so, as it has dragged on a bit too long now and I really want to start something new.
Thanks for looking.
