This crochet

Take 3 by MrsN_K

Is really making those beads take a back seat!! This one will, like my bead portraits, slowly reveal itself. Hopefully it looks good :) Use will be decided when its finished.

Now where did I leave those beads??!

Neglect is such a bad word

But that's what has happened with my blog. We were away over the Christmas break, and fell straight back into school and work routines almost immediately on our return!

To be honest I've not done much beading or crochet of recent. I've been feeling a little off for a while, but hopefully I'll perk up soon....well ok, I'm starting to perk up. And here's the results of that.

I bought some accessories for my Mirrix just before Christmas - a spring for size 15 delicas and an extra warp bar. Both are occupying the loom right now. I wanted to try working with 15s and have finally gotten round to it!


I'm liking working on something narrow. First time in a long time! I've had to stop after breaking a needle an not having one small enough to pass through. I guess I'll have to make a trip to a store seeing as I'm no Lilly to order any beads soon.

My other project. Something for our home. My son asked who I'm giving it to! That tells you a lot (including I think he liked it). Here it is. A granny suare/zig zag blanket. It's wider than I had planned so that's good. I'm now working on lengthening it :)




I'm really eager to work on it, despite the width - I've not done something this wide in...well..almost 5yrs!! I'm working out the colour order as. Go. Randomness can be a good thing sometimes :)

It's good to be blogging again. Hopefully I can keep up this year. Have a good day, or what's remaining of it.
