So, this week I have mostly been turning this:

dryad beads

into this:

 and I have to say I’m quite proud of myself. For anyone who knows me, I’m fairly sure you’ll agree that the colours are a bit of a departure for me. It’s only fair to tell you that I didn’t pick the colours myself. It’s for work- if I’d have picked the colours no doubt it would have been in shades of teal/blue/turquoise. There’s a thought! Maybe I’ll do myself a version (this one isn’t mine to keep 😦 ) in duller colours, although I have lots of left over beads so I might do something in similar colours. Hmmm…………

Anyway, the blanket is no further on than last time, but I guess I’ll get round to that again soon. I’m a real harlot when it comes to crafting- I get bored and have to switch to keep things interesting. When I have to do something, chances are I won’t want to do it. So i have lots of WIPs to contend with. My new years resolution this year was to finish 5 things and so far I have managed 2. Which is pretty good going, halfway through the year, almost halfway through the resolution! I’m hoping to pick up a new craft with my friend GingerSquirrel next week- we’re doing Dorset Buttons which shopuld be interesting!

I’ll keep you posted! I’m off to play with something crafty so have a lovely evening all,

My dear friend, The Ginger Squirrel ( has informed me that my blog must have pictures. So here are a few pictures of my current Work-in-Progress. It’s a pattern from the Natural Dye Studio ( called Bessies Triangles Blanket. It’s a really nice pattern! I’m hoping to turn this:

lots of yummy yarn!

lots of yummy yarn!

into some (136 to be exact) of these:

13 down, 123 to go!

 It’s not hugely difficult, it’s mostly about finding time to sit and do them without feeling guilty. So I think that may be what I’m off to do now!

Enjoy yourself, I know I will!
