This time I made a gathered beaded bracelet. I think I twisted it accidentally at the end and I'm not wild about the way it looks, and unpicking the relevant bits don't really interest me. It may be usable in another craft piece at some point in the future - nothing need be wasted.
This is lace weight cotton and size 8 beads.
I do actually have a major piece of beaded knitting still lined up, but not like this. I want to do a shawl which will have some beads added to it using the crochet hook method. But I don't want to start that for a couple of weeks as it's a biggish project and I don't want the distraction of Christmas and a possible holiday afterwards to get in the way.
And now for something completely different.
Just to prove that even big kids like construction toys:
'I was tidying up upstairs and I got distracted.'
And we have pigeons nesting in the passionfruit vine directly the side of our patio. It is rather cute watching the little baby pigeons get bigger. I took this photo a week ago and they are bigger already. The mum is very devoted.
George and I are hoping to go to Adelaide for a week after Christmas, but again family circumstances make it a bit hard to gauge whether we can actually go or not. Nothing is booked yet (except for a dinner date in Glenelg on December 28th!).
