Playtime at last!

Oh, I’ve had such a lovely start to my week.

My crafty pal Lythan came to call on Monday and we ‘played’ all day.
It’s been so long since we’ve been able to get together to craft and have a good natter, so you can bet that we made up for lost time. Lol!

We had a very productive day too.

Lythan was working on two 12 x 12 layouts that she had brought with her and I decided to make my P.I.F. for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday’s second anniversary, which is coming up very shortly.
If you’ve no idea what WOYWW is all about hop across to The Stamping Ground where you’ll find all you need to know.

Now, for obvious reasons I can’t show you my P.I.F. yet but I can show you what’s on my desk this morning it’s something that I don’t often dabble with……………

I have my bead box out!

The beads may or may not have something to do with my P.I.F. but what you can see in the picture are the bracelets that I’m making for my friend Sandy.

We saw the beads in Wal-Mart while we were in America in February and it was a good job I’m not into jewelry making in a big way because I think my luggage would have been way over weight on the way home. There were so many gorgeous beads and all soooo cheap. A ‘real’ beader would have struggled to restrain themselves, I’m sure.

I picked up a big bag of various shades of Brown and Beige beads and this string of beautiful Black wired glass beads for myself.

Sandy decided on the two sets you can see on my desk……wish I had got some of those Blue ones for me now.

Well, it’s on with my day.

The ironing board is calling unfortunately but I hope to be back later to visit a few more desks than I managed last week and leave more comments.

Thanks to everyone who left comments for me last week too, they are always most appreciated.

Oh yes, my week is set to end well too, because Lythan and I are off to Alexander Palace on Saturday for the Big Stamp Show.
May see you there if you're going too!

Happy Crafting!

Yes, I often look at the beads and things in JoAnn and Michaels too, but I really need another hobby like I need a hole in my head!! Lovely stuff you're making though, love those wire wrapped beads.

I'm glad you had a lovely time with your crafty pal. It's always great to craft in company isn't it.
I love your beads, especially those bluey ones. Jewellery isn't something i've tried but I love to put beads on crafty projects and love finding unusual ones.
Enjoy Ally Pally.

WOW wire working and beads! Two of my favorite things but I don't do them my daughter does. She has an awesome site and I just beg and plead till she makes something for me. Thanks for sharing! Vickie #88

Hello Sue. This is my first visit to your blog and I am very impressed with your beads and your other genealogical blog. Looks like Ally Pally is the place to be on Saturday! TFS. ~Glen~

I was surprised to see a bead board on your desk Sue - I can't remember you mentioning beading before.
Glad you had a good day with Lythan - we should try and get together for that Robo session this year!

Have a fab day at AP, have you been saving up?
