Really enjoying this Beading Lark

I made jewellery for presents recently.
I think they turned out really well and I knitted little gift bags for each.

First in reds. Using super duos, fire polished and seeds beeds.


Second set lilac/purple. Using Super duos, Fire polished, Tila and seed beads


And the gift bags:


Well pleased with these little sets.

I think the recipients liked them too.

I've also finished a bracelet for me:



I find myself looking forward to my Thursday evenings at my beading class. Really eager to learn more and more.

Found a pot of Bolognaise in freezer. Boiled some pasta heated up Bolognaise and "Hey Presto".

Thursday - Beed class night.
I pick up something quick and reduced at Supermarket -This week Sushi
