A visit to our daughter in Queensland always includes a trip to Mt. Tamborine to a craft market. Quite apart from the beauty of the area, I love the market for its relaxed atmosphere. I can always be sure to find something to bring back to Melbourne. I fell in love with these little beaded angels and bought a kit for two. Although I admire the work when its done by others, and I love the bling that beading creates, beading is not my thing - but I just had to have a go at these. "Not difficult," said the stall holder, "You just thread the beads on to the safety pins..." and she went on to describe the method. "Yeah. I can do that," I thought. So, when I got home, I sat down with pliers and a soup plate to hold the contents of the little plastic bag containing the necessassary directions, beads and gold wire. Huh!! That was when I discovered that I had developed a few extra thumbs and several extra fingers. I did manage to get my little angels made up and I only said one bad word when the wire sprang from my fingers and flung beads in every direction. Just as well the kit contained a few spares. Pat at Bead Knitting & Crochet, I salute you. I still have the directions and maybe I'll have another go at more angels at a later date. In the meantime I'll get back to my crochet hook and my knitting needles. Aaah. That's better. Bye for now until next time.
