What this glum face all about?

Why is Missy looking so glum?

It's time for a walk (it's ALWAYS time for a walk according to Missy!) and all dad is doing is having a cup of tea and the crossword. It's SUNNY out; what are we doing stuck indoors??!

Autumn beads

I was just listing three new sets of beads in my Etsy Bead shop and I realised the colours were all very autumnal. It wasn't entirely deliberate. The russet brown beads to the bottom right were supposed to be a wine red, garnety kind of colour. It's my latest self-devised frit blend, here's what it looks like before I put it on the bead.

Quite a difference! I quite like them so I'll be adding the "recipe" to my notebook but I'll have to try again to see if I can make some wine red frizzle beads.

I've made some of the primrose bubble beads before but the light brown beads at the back are a new colour in the spankle beads range.

Hope you're having a nice Saturday!

Steep Hill, Lincoln - best street in the WORLD!

Don't forget to come to Lincoln this Saturday, I will have a stall on Castle Square. Here's an absolutely brilliant film telling you a little bit about Lincoln (warning it has a rude word in it so don't watch if you're offended by swearing).
