Its sooo cold!!!

Hi everyone, gosh its sooo cold and dull here in the fens this week, really hope it starts to warm up soon. I had a bit of a horrible week with a lot of stress that I won't go into, but my beads and glass are keeping me sane lol!!!!

I managed to get some torch time yesterday after a problem with my oxygenator. (it makes oxygen to fuel my torch) Hubby had to open it up and fix a faulty valve!! with a little bit of guidance from Spot of course!! had me worried for a bit but its happily humming away now!! Yay.

I made some encased beadies

and finished off some spotty ones for a big order I have at the min.

I have a pretty busy week planned fairly busy down on the farm, then off to Surrey this week visiting my best friend and her gorgeous son. Then my daughter is home from Chester at the weekend so we planning a family catch up weekend, so heres hoping we all have a good week xxx

My the last week has gone fast!!

So let me think, what have I been upto??? hmmmmm the weekend flew by and I spent most of the weekend catching up on house stuff, running around after the kids, walking the dog and catching up on my beady orders, sounds rather boring but I love pottering about at the weekends. Hubby worked most of it but we managed to have a lovely Sundayafternoon together, big walk with Madgy and then lovely Sunday dinner made by Jason! would not be lovely if I made it!!! lol

I am really into making spotty beads at the minute!! everytime I sit in front of the torch I get all this different colour combinations popping into my head!! I have popped a few sets in my ebay shop and seem to be selling well, which really makes me have that nice warm happy feeling. I have also made little hammers, keyboards and footballs for a special order, its been fun playing around making novelty beads and I think in time I will continue to play around and make more.

I then made this for my Mum too, hope she likes it, she has been after a long necklace for ages.

Well its nearly the weekend and I have a fun packed day looking after my baby niece on Saturday - Yay. Hope you all have a good weekend xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
