Wrapping up, nope not Christmas presents, I'm never as organised as that! This is ice on the outside of my garden studio it's making pretty patterns but gosh it's cold!
When I'm making beads in the garden, I'm quite close to my kiln and I can huddle over the flame of my torch so my top half stays quite cosy. My bottom half suffers though. Here are today's wrapping up precautions:
Thick woollen black tights and hand knitted socks.
Jeans over the top of those
Boucle leg warmers
And finally my heavy duty walking boots. Never let it be said that a lampwork bead maker's life isn't glamorous!
