Something A Bit Different

Just how many different things can I make with the leaf canes that I made last week?

This little "Spring Bouquet" came about without any real input from myself. I just sat at my desk trying to think what to do and the next thing I knew I had this! How exactly did that happen?

A very different style for me - but I like it! Hope you do too!

Have a wonderful weekend - the weather is set to be gorgeous here in the UK!

Fresh New Look

Do you like the new layout for the Blog? I had some new graphics made for my Etsy Shop by Winchester Lambourne on Etsy : I honestly think she must be a mind reader - she came up with a design that was exactly what I wanted, despite me giving her only the very slightest of ideas. It is colourful, fresh, contemporary and I love it. So I felt I had to update the blog as well. It feels like spring, both on my blog and Etsy shop as well as outside.

The rest of my week has been busy making lots of leaf canes in various colourways that I made up into various bits and pieces - I have obviously been needing a little injection of colour in my life after the long winter months.

This weekend is the second Module on Christine's Hollow Bead Course and I can't wait. I have been too busy making stock to practice and play, but am hoping for a bit more time to play next week.

Hope you all have a colourful weekend.
