So here's to tomorrow. May it bring motivation (and time) for me to work with those little wonders called delicas!
Happy Beading and crafting.

Anyway here is the progress so far.
I've gotten faster at loading the beads and getting them onto the loom. Am almost at the stage where I can lay out the beads in order without looking at the chart.
I'll likely post again when I get to the top of the second head. Exciting and scary times lay ahead. Thanks for reading and have a good weekend.

Now I can relax!. I have the Mirrix warped up for another portrait - my Husband's present. I'll post a progress photo when I have done something significant. Another thing I have to do is to finalise the pattern for my mum's purse. I'll be adding a design and frame to cover the white sections on the back (late grandmothers' photo). Then I can hopefully use my other loom for that.
Have a great weekend whatever you have planned.

I posted the purse on Friday afternoon but it won't be picked up till Friday. So as soon as I get the call I'll post the photos here.
In the meantime, I will be making a start on my Husbands present. I need to decide which loom I'll be using then I can warp and make a start...when he's gone to work! :) There probably won't be any progress photos for a while.

I also have this purse that needs finishing. It's for someone who is (and has been) a great friend to my brother. I was debating whether, instead of sewing the sides, I attach lining so that it shows through on the sides. But I'm not sure I would be happy with that. So I think the way to go is sew the sides up and then insert lining. I may need to order some other colours, I'll decide later.
I have two projects lined up. One for the Mr, and the other for my mum. Both loomed (what am I on!). The Mr's birthday is in December and I thought it would be nice to have it done in time for that. But I would have to hide it. But I also want to work on my mum's purse.
I have two looms I could use, so I'll check and see if I can work on them both at the same time. I want to work the purse in one piece, and hoping to do some shaping of sorts. Time to do some reading (bead books!) :)

So now it's onto the strap. I have finalised the design and intend to start it tonight...despite it being late and me being tired. If I can at least warp and get the first line (or three) on, I'll go to bed happy. I now won't be revealing it till the recipient gets it. Don't want to spoil it entirely. So check back hopefully sooner than soon for the strap and the purse in all its glory :)
