|Tea in a sunny garden - just a dream in my sketchbook!|
My apologies for my absence from the blogosphere for a week or two. Selling bits and bobs on Ebay and Amazon has been keeping me busy. This weather seems to be favouring the online sellers, as I have had a (usually wet) stroll to the post office laden with packets most days. My dreams of sitting in the sun under a shady parasol with pot of tea and beadwork have not come true so far this year, although as I write this the sun is peeping through at last.
When I have found the time for beading I’ve been working on ‘Kimono’ and it is now at the stage where I am making the strap. What a challenge it is to get both sides the same! Sometimes I think my patient nature is as much a curse as a blessing, as it seems to take me several weeks to finish a piece to my satisfaction. But detail and texture is what interests me creatively, so I just follow my heart.
