I had a long evening alone with the kids and the prospect of spending hours stopping them from bickering, so got them helping me with some bead therapy.
Little Man threaded the big brightly coloured beads which will become bracelets, including a rainbow one someone has requseted.
Little Lady helped by making the long black necklace in the same pattern as a bracelet I had made. She was ever so proud of her creation and I think the set will make a nice gift for someone.
Gorgeous, managed to thread the same four beads onto a peice of wire about eight times, before dropping beads on the bed (along with some crisps which I am still trying to get out of bed).
The white crystals are a necklace I am making for Little Lady as she turns eight soon insh'Allah.
I dug these beads out again - I just love the way they look and feel. I have started various projects with these and taken them apart again. Nothing seems to do them justice. I have another idea, this time for a long necklace. You never really know how it will look until you start putting it all together, so we will see.
I also have these pretty blue glass beads which I keep picking up, but can't decide what to do with. Let's see where inspiration comes from - any ideas?
