Yahoo, i finally got a chance to sit down and play about with some beads today, thats after i had watched daniel play ftbl and did some ironing. This gorgeous lampwork beads is by the lovely clare scott, the colours are just stunning, i have used contrasting freshwater pearls, with karen hill silver drum beads and sterling silver spiral twists, I have a silk ribbon necklace to match this bracelet. I really need to order lots of sterling silver wire and findings, but i'm being good as it's less than 3 weks till we go to Florida, mind you i looked at the weather report yesterday and they were having storms, hope it gets better for us going, hope you all had a lovely weekend

St Andrews craft fair

It was an early start yestarday morning, up at 6:30am, i had to drive to St Andrews, which is about 1hour 45mins from home, this is the first time that i have done a craft fair here. To start with it was great my table was just as you came in the door so i had a few sales, then it seemed to go really quiet, but at about 3:30 it picked up again, i had a rush on, so i sold quite a few pieces at the end which i was pleased about. The only thing that i have found with the organisers is that alot of people does not know that the fairs are on, so i feel that they are not promoting them enough, as does the other crafters. Finally got home them had chinese for tea with a couple of glasses of rose wine. My next fair is not till novemeber, but i have a few bits and pieces to keep me going till then, plus my 2 weeks in Florida, 3 1/2 weeks to go yahoo.
