Glass Bead Making With Helen Chalmers - Me Making A Bead

Glass Bead Making With Helen Chalmers

Ok, so you’ve probably heard me waffle on about glass working being a dream of mine. Indeed I’ve shared some dabblings on this blog in the past.

Just recently though I’ve had a right hankering to take it further. So I did!

Here’s a little (and by little I mean goes on forever) post about the best time in my life, ever! You might want to get a comfy seat and a cup of tea (and some ear plugs).

Monday Mash Up 1 - If Friends Were Flowers Card - (1)

Monday Mash Up 1 – If Friends Were Flowers …

This week I am trying to get another regular weekly blog post on the go. This one will be called the Monday Mash Up.

Fabric Friday – An Update And A Prelude

It has occurred to me that I often prattle on about how much I love working with fabrics but haven’t really shown much of it on this blog.

To rectify this I will be setting down soon and putting together a series of blog posts that will come out every Friday (assuming that I have the time of course).

They will aptly be named – Fabric Friday :)

This one is a little teaser to show you just a few of the things that I have done in the past and what I will be showing you how to do in these posts (oh, and a little update on the upcycled shirt quilt that I have been working on for what seems like forever!).
